It's always good to revisit and update so here's the latest on my favourite hotel in Heraklion. We stayed there recently while travelling across the island and I'm delighted to tell you that it's as good as ever and better in some respects! There are...More
We stayed at this lovely family run hotel for a week while on holiday in Crete, it was very well situated for visiting attractions and for the airport, although the planes didn't disturb us at all! The staff were all very polite and helpful and...More

The ancient site of Knossos is well worth a visit and can be accessed from the main bus station by local bus, there are also museums, galleries and old churches that are worth a visit. The town centre of Heraklion is packed with shops and some malls just ask at your hotel reception. You will find English spoken practically everywhere and judging by the clarity of your question you should be fine. The Cretan people are warm, welcoming, cultured and very helpful so have a wonderful time!
