Heraklion hotel and bus service

Am landing in Heraklion on September 25 too late to get to Plakias. Can anybody recommend a hotel in Heraklion at a decent price that is also close to the bus depot (guessing to Rethymon and then Plakias).

can't help with a hotel but yes you will need to get to Rethymnon first

Bus timetables below, the 1st and 6th will be of interest to you

Yes: try the Irini. It's 5 minutes walk from the bus station, clean, decent, and adequate for a short stay, and reasonably priced.

A little more expensive than the Irini is the Marin Dream which is recommended. Both are within easy reach of the bus station (it is a short downhill walk). Both are readily available through the various internet agencies and with some of them you don't pay up front and have the chance to cancel without a fee should your plans change (subject to conditions of course).

Wherever you end up staying I would recommend a taxi from the airport. Shouldn't cost more than 15 euros and much easier then messing about with the bus at that time fo night.

PS I tried to answer your other query re the Palkias/Preveli boats - no pricing info though I'm afraid.
