Great location for catching an early morning ferry or bus. About a five minute walk. Very nice hotel. No need to take taxi like we did from the bus station. Very close by. Ask for directions. My only complaint is I didn’t get my wake up call.
close to harbor and bus to Knossos
Reviewed 8 march, 2018
the location is ideal for travel - walk to the harbor and to the bus station. The hotel is small and old(er), could use some upkeep. the breakfast was OK - coffee and pasties. there is no restaurant near by and the streets are not so welcoming after dark.
Nice and quite central hotel, but a bit noisy
Reviewed 30 july, 2017
The hotel itself is good. Decoration and atmosphere is nice. The price is not too bad and the beds are good. Aircondition works very well. The only major drawback I can think of is the noisy traffic outside and the airplanes flying over. About 10 minutes walk from bus station and 15 minutes from Heraklion central.
Exceptionally bad treatment by staff
Reviewed 25 july, 2017
Very rude staff - I had to leave the hotel on my first night even though I had pre-paid for the full 3 nights. Never been treated this way at a hotel anywhere in the world! Seems less important than the above, but adds to the awful experience: The hotel is in an exceptionally noisy area. The small window of the room was facing a brick wall (2 meters away from the window). Very small, dark room.

Although from the outside it looks a bit like a backstreet brothel, it's actually quite nice inside with a bar/ice cream area. The room itself was ok but could have done with a bit of sprucing up. There was a faint smell of smoke in there and on some of the pillows. The remote control for the tv was one of the dirtiest remote controls I've ever had the misfortune of handling - really sticky and just eurgh. There's also the now familiar smell of sewage which I think I will associate with Crete as you can't flush paper. That's not the hotels fault but I felt it was 'imbedded' into the room more than an in other places, though that might just have been my sensitive nose. The shower is also old and needs replacing, and the bath is non existent - you would have to sit clutching your knees to fit in it I don't know why it's there. The main road outside also interrupted our sleep quite a lot, but again that's not the hotels fault. But what you do get is decent and basic. You get a massive bed, air con, a balcony, an *ahem* romantically sized mirror opposite the bed, and good service from staff. You are also close enough to the town centre for it not to feel too far away, though it is in an area of Heraklion where the pavement (if you can call them that) is particularly treacherous. This certainly isn't a hotel to lounge around and relax in; it's a just about decent hotel within reach of the town centre that you use to sleep in between your city adventures - expect anything more and you will be disappointed. It's ok and you get what you pay for so you can't be all too mad. I just wish they would have cleaned a little more as out of all the things that aren't in the hotels control, cleanliness is.
