Friendly, very, very helpful staff and comfortable rooms. En suite bathrooms would make it perfect. Well situated for shopping. Close and far enough from the airport. Mare Cafe is strongly recommended.

It's 100m from the sea, in the centre of town and the night receptionist is very nice and extremely helpful. The rooms are small but comfortable and it's a city hotel. The rates are very reasonable. Lovely traditional taverna with delicious food just round the corner (Defkalion) and breakfast can be had at the seafront café just down the road. Heaven! Don't forget to have a freshly pressed orange juice. It's to die for!

Room Tip: They don't have a lift so if you have luggage, try and get a first floor room. There's no...

We booked on the Hotel Rea last minute after needing a quick place to stay on our trip through the island. We were so happy that we found this place! The room was clean, and we were treated to a 3 bed unit that actually had 3 complete beds (no bunk beds or cots!). The bathroom was great, as we had our own ensuite.
The hotel is just steps away from the main costal highway. Is a ten minute walk from the bus station and the main port. It's also a stones throw to the local nightlife. There is a little family run market right outside that you can purchase snacks from.
Although we were only at the Hotel Rea for one night, it was one of the best places we stayed on our 5 week trip through Europe. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a fantastic, affordable stay in Heraklion.

We had an overnight in Heraklion and just needed a place to crash between our ferry arrival and heading to Chania the next day. Rea was perfect for us - very close to the ferry and also for walking to the center of town. In fact, I don't think we could have chosen a better location. The room was simple but clean with a comfortable bed. It was a ground floor room, but we never heard any outside noise. The shared bathroom was also very nice, and there was never a line up to use it. We actually enjoyed Heraklion very much and would have liked staying longer if we had the time, and we would have been happy to stay more nights at Rea.
