The hotel was very clean, staff were incredibly professional, attentive and friendly. The room was a good size and the bed was enormous; the room had a balcony, TV, fridge freezer and a safe which was free to use. Two of us stayed for 4 nights and paid less than €200 total which was cheaper than the other hotels in... More

The hotel is located quite well within 1 km range from the port. It's well priced and very easily accessible. However maintenance could be improved. The easiest way to access it is through the port. Quite far away from the airport though.

The hotel was very noisy. The breakfast was not very good. The hotel is a little far from the city center. Overall, as the other hotel we stayed at in Heraklion, it is quite expensive for what you get compared to the rest of Crete. Otherwise, the staff was friendly and the room was clean.

Athinaikon Hotel is within walking distance from the port and in close proximity to the city center, making it an ideal location for people that don't want to venture outside of Herakleion city (ie businessmen). Hotel staff were friendly, the room was clean, a little bit old-fashioned and tiny. The mattress and pillow were comfortable for me. The bathroom was... More
