Prince Of Lillies
Ranked #28 of 58 Hotels in Heraklion
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This hotel was filled with warm, inviting staff. They were very friendly and helpful. The evening manager, Mario, was extremely helpful in finding us a car for a great deal as well as giving us directions.

The room itself was small, but perfect for our needs and the price. We paid 35 euros a night.

The restaurant attached had delicious, hand-made pizzas that were cooked in a wood-fire oven.

The only things that would up my rating to a 5 are these: There was a thick layer of dust under the beds and on the bed posts; the wifi is only accessible in the common areas, not the rooms. These are minor complaints. I would stay here again any day.

With little budget at the end of 2011 after finishing University me and my partner decided to take a week away here. The hotel is very friendly and sweet. The pool is a lovely size. The rooms are basic but you are hardly in them. The sites are amazing, the beach down the road is gorgeous and very good to take pictures if your into photography. There is a bakery across the street and a cafe (which was interesting) reasonably priced but we did spend a lot. Our package included bed and breakfast and the breakfast side of things was very limited. We hired a car for a day and it was the best thing we could have done, we went to the local water park and and saw some sites and it was a perfect day out! The hotel is well situated, not too far from anywhere. It was lovely and relaxing (not ideal for children)! And best of all the staff are so friendly and helpful!

This place is amazing, as three backpackers we had been used to more questionable places with a few hotels throughout our journey and Prince of Lillies certainly blew us away. The hotel itself is gorgeous with an amazing terraced restaurant out front with reasonable prices. The building is clean and the rooms are spotless. The bedding was changed every morning. The room balconies give great views of the sunset over the water!

The staff was incredibly helpful, we were stuck for ferries and the management of Prince of Lillies actually called the ferry company to sort out reservations and ferry times. We were given a map and management wrote explicit paths and bus routes to get to the places we needed with a calling card incase we got lost.

On top of all this, breakfast is included and the pool is large, clean and beautiful! A 10 minute walk to the beach!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, most overlook the ocean with stellar sunset views! Even if the room seems t...

Great place to stay for a great price. Breakfast is included and it is close to a bus stop. Restaurant has great food and great atmosphere. I can't rave enough about the staff... Everyone is friendly and going great lengths to help us and answer all our questions. It is 5 minute walking distance to a spectacular beach. I very highly recommend Prince of Lillies in Heraklion.

The hotel is located only a few car minutes away from the Heraklion airport and near to E75 autobahn, the most convenient way to get to many sights all over Creta. Friendly, English-speaking staff, convenient and clean rooms & free Wifi, tavern serving late. There even is a (summer) outdoor pool included at the property. A city beach is also within walking distance, as are a bakery, some beach gift shops and a supermarket. Public Bus service to Heraklion down the street. However, if you are looking for a quiet, remote, 3week-holiday resort, the Prince of Lillies might not be your first choice, but you guessed that, don't you?

-Really clean hotel rooms
-Quiet location near to everywhere
-Perfect gardens and nice swimming pool
-Lovely staff
-Low prices
And million of things that is not possible to explain if you don't taste it!
They have found the best way to relax you there and make you feel home!
I recommend this hotel to every one that he want to stay for exploring the island or to relax with his family or couples,not a lot to do around the area but it is nice
The beach is clean, famous for Greeks, and is 200m away from the hotel

On the first floor in the evening, you can listen to the live music(+dancing).
The price is reasonable.
Breakfast is included.(The taste is not bad.)
I Recommend you for short stay in the hotel but not for long stay.
