I arrived at about 17:30 on the 18 September 2012. After 34 hours of wearing the same clothes we decided that catching a taxi would be the best mode of transport. Taxi fare to the hotel cost 15E which is probably steep for such a short distance from the airport.
The hotel is in the heart of Heraklion. The streets are narrow and full of cars and motorbikes. Some have been abandoned even!
The hotel is value for money at 50 E. It has aircon and a balcony and even a kettle! You can stand on your balcony and watch the locals or even walk up the road to the town centre and join them.
Would i stay here again? Yes.
I am 27 year old South African and it is definately up to my standard!
The hotel staff organised me a rental car with a guy called Peter. Its a good idea to drive to places like Elafonisi.EXTREMELY Windy roads. Great views and definately worth the long drive! Beware---Greeks do not know how to drive! and all the boxes you see next to the side of the roads are plaques for people who have been involved in fatal vehicle accidents!
