Wonderful, clean room with great balcony. Well located near ferry port, bus station, McDonald's, good cheap supermarket, and a quick walk into town. NO KETTLE IN ROOM, which is a pain, but the very nice front desk staff will give you hot water anytime. All staff were extremely helpful, gave great directions and tips.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Located near the port, a 10' walk from downtown and also close to the bus terminal. The room was airy and bright with a nice balcony. The thing that they should definitely change is the mattresses. Mine was thin and not very comfortable. Very clean rooms and lobby area, decent breakfast for 5 euros

Room was basic but very clean. Good location, easy walk into the centre of Heraklion. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great stop over the night before a flight as getting to the airport is so easy. Plenty of spaces to park. Breakfast included, basic but satisfying!

The hotel is located quite well within 1 km range from the port. It's well priced and very easily accessible. However maintenance could be improved. The easiest way to access it is through the port. Quite far away from the airport though.
