We have had a run of good hotels recently and were impressed by the reviews for the Lato Boutique that we found on Tripadvisor. Our experience matched the best of those reviews.
The staff of the hotel were friendly, helpful and efficient. The restaurant is excellent, serving traditional Cretan cuisine with more refinement than most other local restaurants (though the rooftop terrace is rather too windy on some autumn evenings). Breakfast is good, recognising that a substantial early morning meal is not part of the Greek culinary tradition. Our room (a junior suite) was large, clean and comfortable. Bathroom was rather small and not well designed, and the plumbing is prone to relay unwholesome smells if one is not careful with basin waste plugs.
The hotel is only five minutes from the city centre, the harbour and the bus station: an excellent base for a day in or our out of Heraklion.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The dramatic views of the Venetian fortress at the old city harbor of Heraklion, and the wonder-filled waves of the Cretan Sea, are among the most photographed tourist attractions on Crete island. Not many visitors can enjoy the full panoramic grandeur of these contemplative landscapes, the way our guests at Lato Boutique Hotel can.Standing for more than 35 years above the marina, our hotel operates 365 days a year without interruptions. Famous for authentic Cretan hospitality, Lato Boutique Hotel is the most welcoming establishment in this part of the city, a magnet for romantic couples, but also for families, and business travelers.Being at the center of the old Heraklion town, the peaceful and colorful central market is only a few steps away. The museums, the Venetian harbor with the fishing boats and the yacht marina, the parks, the gardens, the city cafes and all ancient Heraklion lays at the foot of our front doorstep, your front doorstep. ... more less
