We were looking for the hotel for one night to wait for the ferry. Hotel Lena is good place for it. It's clean, it's cheap, it's closed to the center and to the port too. We had a family room (4 persons). The room was well divided with big shower, TV, Air-cond and a little bit squeaking ventilator.The hotel is... More

We were in on one ferry and going out of town the next day, so it was okay, but if you plan to stay in town for a while, this may not be a great place for you. It is in the centre of the city and when the taxi driver stopped the car and pointed down the road, it... More

Located on the city centre, we got 15 €/night rate in this clean, very comfortable hotel. The only drawback was that the shower didn't get to a high pressure and though it was difficult to shower. Other than that I would say it was quite a good place.

Stayed room with 3 beads. We can enjoy hot shower(but control of temperature was difficult), TV, air conditioner and simple, clean room. Hotel Lena was in back alley near main streat of Heraklion. It was a little scary place for girls at nitght, but very good place to walk around Heraklion. Reception staff was also kind and nice people.

I'm a solo backpacker and didn't expect the hostel to be so nice. I got here in January at 7pm one night and easily got one single room for 30€. I chose this hostel just because it's located near the town centre and 5 minutes away from the shore. To my amazement, my room was extremely clean and colorful, in... More

Hotel Lena is a nice little hotel not too far from the airport and within walking distance of the National Archaeological Museum. The rooms are basic, but surprisingly spacious, although the beds are rather hard. Breakfast was lovely, with fresh cakes, boiled eggs, hot drinks, etc. all made on demand. For a night or two in Heraklion, this was exactly... More

There are only positives to say about Hotel Lena. Situated in a quiet street within metres of 25 August Street and the hub of Heraklion, it is ideally located and a good base for a few days stay in this part of Crete. Rooms were spacious, clean, airy and the place had the feel of a small, but well run... More

Nice and helpful staff. I had a ground floor room that was non-ensuite - reflected in the tarriff. The batthroom was on the same floor. Felt like quite a traditional greek style hotel. I'd describe it as being quite simple but adequete and pleasant. Mugs, glass inte room, local station TV. There is wifi that worked well and at no... More

We arrived by ferry from IOS at 9:00pm. Walked into Heraklion and the first hotel we called at was full, the kind lady on Reception phones on and booked us into the Lena Hotel. Very friendly, great price everything worked as it should, including the shower, pressure was just like home in England with power shower. Will certainly stay here... More

Stayed here one night because my flight arrived late. Very friendly helpful staff. The room was spotless, but the water pressure in the (tiny) showers is pitiful and just dribbles out of the handheld showers. Apparently this is a known situation in the hotel, but the management hasn't done anything to improve it. If you are not too fussed about... More
