I was recommended this place on Tripadvisor and found it to be just what we needed from our late arrival into the airport (easy bus ride) and then us leaving for Santorini by Ferry the following morning (5 mins walk to ferry). It's also located near the bus station and a short walk from the centre. We booked a night... More

I stayed at Life Hotel for 2 nights on my arrival into Crete. The hotel was very close to town and the port and only about a 5min walk to the local bus station and a 10€ taxi ride from the airport. The rooms were small but I was traveling solo so perfect for a place to rest and revive.... More

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
