this hotel is very handy for late flights in - we stayed for a couple of nights. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were really friendly. Great pool and delicious breakfast - would love to stay again.

We choose this hotel due to its location (near the airport and car rentals) and we were very nice surprised by: • its helpful and friendly staff • an excellent welcoming with a possibility to have breakfast at a very early hour (nice if your flight departs early). • a swimming-pool to kill these hours after having given back your...

The Sofia Hotel is a family owned property not far from Heraklion Airport. Two Sofias, cousins, man reception at the hotel named after their grandmother. Both are charming and very helpful as is everyone else we dealt with at this comfortable hotel. One of the Sofias recommended Oi treis Mouries restaurant nearby (10 minute walk) as serving good home-style food...

Visited The Sofia again recently for the start and end to our holiday on this most mesmerising of islands. Wonderful, warm greeting by all the staff, who are so helpful. A real convenient location for the airport. Clean and quiet rooms, with ample sound-proofing to the balcony windows. Tasty grill bar, next to the pool in the evening. I really...

We stayed one night in this family-run hotel before leaving Crete. The airport is walking distance (families should probably take a taxi). The staff is friendly, the hotel is clean, and our room was modern. The hotel even has a swimming pool which we didn't use. We spent 80 euro for four people staying one night, which we found a...

This hotel is only about 1.5 kilometres from the busy Heraklion airport. We were leaving real early in the morning so this was a convenient location. We were a bit afraid of the noise due to the proximity of the airport, but I guess the soundproofing was adequate, as there was no problem. The room was very modern, with great...

The hotel had what we needed for an overnight before an early flight out of Heraklion -- clean, hot shower, Internet access. Very Spartan accommodations, no desk and very firm bed. Front desk friendly and helpful calling taxi. No airport shuttle (anywhere in Heraklion).
