We booked this hotel as we our flight into heraklion airport arrived at 3.30am. It was so close the airport we were able to walk. It would also be a very short taxi ride. The staff were very friendly (24 hour reception). Nice breakfast and nice pool. Comfortable air conditioned rooms.

Stopped here for one night only. On arrival (2pm) the receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much bother and a pleasure to deal with. Our room was spacious, immaculately clean. Comfortable beds, extra pillows and balcony to the front. We did not experience any airport noise. We walked into the city centre (30 mins) as long as...

My party of three adults shared a triple room at this hotel on 27th September 2016 following a late evening arrival on a flight with EasyJet. The taxi transfer from the airport was no more than five minutes and it was great to be able to get there so quickly as we were suitably tired. Our welcome at reception was...

We booked this hotel on our first night in Crete for our flight landed late. It's very convenient for its proximity to the airport, but also very noisy due to it. The personal is very kind and recommended us a nice place to eat. I would recommend it if you have a late/early flight, but not for longer

I think this is potentially a place that people choose to stay at just for one or two nights as a stop over from the airport. However, we chose to stay here for one week, for our honeymoon, and were not disappointed! Not only is the price great, the service and everything you get for your money, you would think...

Staff very pleasant and check in a breeze. One night stay prior to early morning flight. Perfect for proximity to airport. 5 minutes drive. Some distance from downtown so requires a taxi. Waking is possible although walk takes you through areas of not much interest. Room adequate and clean. Unfortunately no soap in any of dispenser in Bathroom which was...

We had a late arrival in Heraklion and chose a hotel close to the airport. Sofia Hotel is it. Very good service, clean and a Greek Food menu to welcome you on Crete. Some early morning aircraft noise is the only inconvenience (even if windows are isolated). Overall: Good!

We booked in to this hotel for the first night of our holiday because our flight got in from Scotland at a late hour. We were not disappointed. A short taxi ride from the airport recommended previously when I emailed hotel as to how to get there. The room was basic but quite comfortable. The restaurant was still open on...
