We arrived late @ night from the airport & stayed here 1 night so we could catch the boat to Santorini the next morning.. It was close to the harbor & airport. It was small but had AC & it was fairly clean. The front desk was very nice & made good suggestions for us & asked us if we... More

We overnighted here to catch an early morning ferry from the port, and surprisingly found a modern hotel, clean, comfortable rooms with helpful and pleasant staff, who helped us out with all our enquiries and organised us to get to the port with our luggage even though it was a short walk away....thank-you

The hotel is economical and located near the Heraklion port. The hotel is also close to downtown area, bus station and museums. Our room was clean with worn furniture, but comfortable. We had a small fridge and free Wi-fi. Was not too pleased with the bathroom. The shower head did not stay in place and the shampoo provided by the... More

Stayed for one night at this reasonably priced hotel very close to the port in Heraklion. The Life Hotel is also about a 15 minute walk from the cultural centre of the city and a major road runs past it's front doors, affording easy access by bus to the airport. The single room I rented for one night was en... More

Handy for the port, under 5 mins walk from the bus station and the port. There is however nothing boutique about it. The outside looks quite clean and modern (almost like an ibis) but the room I had was old and worn (and stank of smoke). If you just need an overnight before/after an early/late ferry it's ok. Heraklion is... More

Really great hotel, we stayed here after a late night flight into Heraklion. The guy on reception was so lovely and helpful. He even went to the trouble of ordering us in food as we were really hungry. The rooms were very comfortable, good beds, powerful shower. I thoroughly recommend this hotel, I would stay again in a heartbeat. Thanks... More

The location of the hotel on the Main Street and great walk to the town. Friendly front desk staff. Maintenance fixing rooms at 8.30pm not ideal. Rooms old and small but ok for an overnight stay. Would not rush back.

We needed a reasonable hotel near the port in Heraklion - The Life Hotel was just what we needed and at a good price too. The staff are really helpful and the rooms, although clearly old rooms spruced up, had everything we needed and we had a comfortable night. It is so convenient, a quick walk to the ferry, a... More

I agree that this is convenient for the port, not a fantastic area at night(quiet as opposed to anything I saw which bothered me) and also that the road noise may be a problem(but you can see this when you check in and ask for a quiet room in the back). Our room was clean, beds comfortable, matching furniture and... More
