Perfect overnight stop by the airport. This was our second visit and we arrived at 9p.m. to a warm welcome. The first visit we were 6 hours late due to flight delays and even at 3 a.m. the welcome was warm and friendly. This time we chose a light meal as the Taverna is open to 1 a.m., on the... More

This was where we first went after getting to Crete after our flight. It is a convenient location to the airport and the beach. They do have WiFi and warm showers. We found the breakfast to be wanting and went across the street to an awesome and cheap pastry/coffee shop.

Sympathetic, cost-effective hotel near Heraklion airport, a great starting point for trips around the island, a great taverna, helpful and friendly staff. Occasional roar of engines from the airport can endure. Public transport to the city center and the airport.

This hotel was really nice, pretty, family run, quiet as it is not in a busy part of Crete. Location - a 20 min bus ride in either direction would get you to Heraklion or hersonissos. The bus stops weren't sign posted very well but after asking around we figured out where to stand. The beach was nearby but not... More

Spent two weeks here and we were so pleased to have let the positive reviews sway us. The staff were wonderful, nothing too much trouble, very helpful. Our room was spotless, bedding and towels changed frequently. The food was very good, breakfast is perfectly adequate and if you are looking for something to take with you for a day out... More

My partner and I stayed at the Prince of Lillies for 2 weeks, and chose it because of the positive comments on this site. The hotel is only a 10 minute car ride from the airport, and is situated in Karteros, where there is nothing much to do, although there's a decent beach nearby. Some folk mentioned the noise of...

Thank you Alex and Efi and Giannis and Giorgos and Marios for a relaxing and wonderful stay at your hotel for the past 2 weeks. The food was plenty and a delightful choice each day, especially the vast choice of freshly caught fish, for example the Sea Bass and shrimps. The room was cleaned each day to a very high... More

Having just returned from my stay at The Prince of Lillies I feel I had to express my opinions on not just the hotel, but my overall experience. The holiday to The Prince of Lillies was my first as a lone, female holiday-maker and I was very anxious about the prospect of facing either a lonely or boring week ahead.... More

The hotel is situated less than 500 yards from the beach which makes it easy to travel to. The hotel is very clean and the food is excellent. The service at the hotel is excellent, especially Marios and the kitchen staff, Yana and her parents who are very helpful and friendly. I would strongly recommend this hotel to others and... More

Will cite both good and bad experiences... Good- 1. Location- close to airport. The lady at car hire point knew the address...fairly easy to find. 2. Overall property- decently managed lawn and pool. Bad 1. Service - basics at house keeping like providing towels was not taken care of. On second day of my visit, my room had only one... More
