We stayed one night with two children. Staff very helpful and child-friendly. Baby bed for free! AC funktioned well. Small shop for water, fruit etc next door! Location in the city center but on a back street so not too loud! 3minutes to sea on foot. Very small, simple rooms! Very nice price!

We stayed here on our second visit to Heraklion and wished we had of stayed here before. It is a budget hotel with small rooms but it was spotlessly clean, extremely quite, nice bathroom and the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. As a bonus the beds were very comfortable and the hotel is handily placed in the old town.

We stayed in Heraklion for one night only on our way to Chania. We chose this hotel because it was inexpensive and close to transport. We were greeted by Rena on arrival and she was so warm and helpful we knew we had made the right decision. Thanks Rena.

Long before there was social media world travelers depended not on what friends and family told them which hotels to stay in and why. I have now been travelling for over 35 years and had written many reviews on Tripadvisor and post them as accurately as I can. I also try to make my reviews constructive and make suggestions for...

We literally stayed for 12 hrs in this hotel as we reached Heraklion really late by ferry. It was quite difficult to find this hotel. We would not have found it without help of google maps. It is decent to stay for 1 night. Bed was firm and bathroom was clean and water pressure of shower was also good. 20... More

We stayed on the first floor so it was a good thing as we did not need to carry our luggage up any stairs. (I didn't see any elevator.) Room was clean and tidy. There was a creepy looking painting hanging on the wall, not sure why. Showering area was a bit tidy but manageable. Not sure why there's no... More

We just stayed here one night in early October but found the manager to be very helpful - even trying to find somewhere for us to watch the Rugby World Cup! His recommendations for somewhere to eat were where the locals eat & we had an excellent meal in a fish tavern by the port. The room was small but... More

We stayed at Hotel Rea for two nights, our room was on the ground floor next to the reception. The room was clean though when you walk barefoot you realize the floor itself is not. Both the room as well as the bath are small yet that's enough for someone who is looking for a base and a place in... More

We stayed in a 3-bed room for one night before leaving Crete. The hotel is very well located, in the city centre, close to Morosini's fountain and Venetian fortress. We parked the car in front of the hotel but we were very lucky, it has few parking places but there is one cheap parking close by. The hotel is small... More

Everything was really nice, good air conditioner, good bathroom with everything you need, comfortable beds, and what was the best, a friendly treatment in all our doubts. The position is also nice, only 5 min walk to lion square
