We stayed there several nights it is close to the airport and the center, it has a nice pool, easy parking and very friendly personel! A good choice if you dont want to be very central and be close to the airport.

The Sofia Hotel is a family owned property not far from Heraklion Airport. Two Sofias, cousins, man reception at the hotel named after their grandmother. Both are charming and very helpful as is everyone else we dealt with at this comfortable hotel. One of the Sofias recommended Oi treis Mouries restaurant nearby (10 minute walk) as serving good home-style food... More

Visited The Sofia again recently for the start and end to our holiday on this most mesmerising of islands. Wonderful, warm greeting by all the staff, who are so helpful. A real convenient location for the airport. Clean and quiet rooms, with ample sound-proofing to the balcony windows. Tasty grill bar, next to the pool in the evening. I really... More

Very good hotel at 2 min from the Airport. The rooms are well soundproofed and the beds are good. The pool is attractive and open up to the evening. you can also have late dinner (up to 11 PM). Perfect for your first night in Heraklion

We stayed one night in this family-run hotel before leaving Crete. The airport is walking distance (families should probably take a taxi). The staff is friendly, the hotel is clean, and our room was modern. The hotel even has a swimming pool which we didn't use. We spent 80 euro for four people staying one night, which we found a...

This hotel is only about 1.5 kilometres from the busy Heraklion airport. We were leaving real early in the morning so this was a convenient location. We were a bit afraid of the noise due to the proximity of the airport, but I guess the soundproofing was adequate, as there was no problem. The room was very modern, with great... More

The hotel had what we needed for an overnight before an early flight out of Heraklion -- clean, hot shower, Internet access. Very Spartan accommodations, no desk and very firm bed. Front desk friendly and helpful calling taxi. No airport shuttle (anywhere in Heraklion).

I don't know if I've ever been a guest at a more accommodating hotel. We arrived late after flying into Heraklion. The hotel is easily accessed, has clean rooms and a huge complementary breakfast. The staff went out of their way to accommodate my need to visit a pharmacy, including offering to drive me. I highly recommend this location.

We arrived in the early hours of the morning on a flight from Gatwick just for one night en route to Rethymno hoping that there would be no checking in complications at that time. The staff were efficient and welcoming and the hotel was well kept and clean. We didn't wake until well past breakfast and thought we could buy... More
