Sofia Hotel is really close to the Heraklion Int. Airport. Reception staff was helpful and efficient. My room was on the ground floor with a balcony facing the road. The size of the room, bathroom and balcony were great. The mattress was great and free parking was also a bonus. Breakfast (following covid-19 protocols) was OK, but nothing special. Wi-fi was sufficient Being close to the Airport means that there is noise from the aircrafts taking off. Water in the room was not drinkable (which I understand happens, but in that case you offer some bottles of water to the guests)

We arrived at midnight as our flight was delayed. After checking in we were told that the bar was open until 2 am so we were able to buy beers and coffee to quench our thirst. Also the hotel provided some free bar snacks which were most welcome. The hotel is a short taxi ride from the airport and a 5 minute walk from the different brands of car-hire. We were pleased with our choice for our first night in Crete.

As usual,following our flight arriving late in the evening,we stopped overnight here before heading off travelling round Crete the following day. Over the years,out of other local hotels tried,this has proved to be our favourite. It is easy to find in the dark Free parking on the street if the hotel car park is full Quick easy check in &out with efficient reception staff. Rooms comfortable with aircon &good showers. Breakfast a good serve yourself buffet. Although very near the airport,we always sleep well undisturbed by any aircraft noise.

We stayed st the Sofia Hotel following a late airport arrival. Great location with only a short (€10) taxi ride. The hotel itself was clean, comfortable, with super helpful staff. Despite the late hour of our arrival, we were able to order meals from the hotel cafe which was delicious! In the morning, the helpful reception staff helped us with car rental, providing a late check out to coincide with the car arriving, allowing us to make the most of our stay and relax by the pool.
