Stayed one night each before and after catching the ferry. Short walk to the ferry. You couldn't stay closer. Good price. Friendly and helpful staff. We were able to park our car right across the street and they let us leave it there the 3 days we were gone. Place has been recently renovated and rooms are clean and bright.... More

Room was a good size and a great price. Location is great if you are arriving from the Port or Airport and is about 15 mins walk from the Centre. The Staff at the Reception were also very helpful with advice on good restaurants. The bathroom was a little cramped but you can't really complain when you compare the price... More

Life hotel is ideally located close to the port so if you depart early or arrive late from Heraklion it's a great choice for accomodation. Very nice and accomodating staff that greets you with a smile and will help you with your every need. Also a nice restaurant with some snacks and light meals and a game of pool if... More

Stayed one night after late arrival at airport. Taxi only cost €13. Check in was a little stressful as although stay all paid for, I had problems as the card that it was paid with had since expired and even though I produced the new card I had problems. Not what you want at 3am. Room was clean but basic.... More

Low cost A reasonably nice room last renovated 30 years ago. A nice hot shower with a hand held nozzle that poured water all over the floor. Walking distance to the Ferry in an industrial area with loud traffic noises coming though the closed windows all night. Run down reception area. Pricy poor quality café. On street parking but no...

I wouldn't go as far as name this a "boutique" hotel, but it was a great price and very central. Only about 10mins walk from the airport, and maybe 15mins to central Heraklion. The bus stop to the airport is directly outside the door, and the stop to Knossos is 2 blocks down. Our room was very clean, quiet and... More

Stayed one night after returning from Chania and heading to the airport in the morning. Life is a short walk from the central bus terminal. The hotel is pretty basic overall, but clean and the staff was friendly in the short interaction we had. I'm not sure about the "boutiqueyness" of it... We did not leave for dinner so I'm... More

Horrible experience: one morning my boyfriend and I were looking for a cafe going to the port of Heraklion and we run into the Life Boutique Hotel. A big cafe sign brought us in and we had the worst experience ever. We ordered 2 coffee and 2 croissant telling the lady at the bar that we were in hurry to... More

Standard room has only a window towards a small light-well, more of an air shaft, which is not mentioned when you make the reservation. The decoration is poor but it is near the port, at a central avenue.
