Not being 'townies' we appreciated the location of this slick Hotel being an easy drive from the airport and within walking distance of town but in a quiet location on the road out to Knossos. We arrived at 1am after a delayed flight and was greeted by a pleasant welcome and a clean and comfy well equipped room.The breakfast was a feast! Amazingly good value!
We had a slight problem with the toilet flush which was corrected very quickly. Helpful staff.
Parking our hire car close by wasn't difficult and escaping from town was easy the next day without any traffic rush.
Heraklion itself has an interesting Archeological Museum and historical sights and green shady parks to sit and chat in.
