Nice hotel but make sure you get the right Hotel Irene (Ireni)
Hotel Irene in Crete, near to Heraklion, is a pleasant traditional hotel which is away from other hotels, but very near the bus stop. The pool was great and the room was good with nice views. A few friends of Dorothy were staying here. The hotel is situated along way from civilisation which may appeal to some. Be careful you don’t mix this hotel up with Hotel Ireni which we thought we had booked as we needed to be on a 7am flight. This hotel also goes by the same name and is 25 mins by bus from the airport rather than 5 mins that we thought. No problem unless the first bus doesn’t go till 6am and the taxis are on strike!! So it was hitching at 5.45am. Crete people (Well one chap in a borrowed jeep) are so friendly that we had our lift in the dark within 45mins. Not to be recommended!
