The location of the hotel on the Main Street and great walk to the town. Friendly front desk staff. Maintenance fixing rooms at 8.30pm not ideal. Rooms old and small but ok for an overnight stay. Would not rush back.

We needed a reasonable hotel near the port in Heraklion - The Life Hotel was just what we needed and at a good price too. The staff are really helpful and the rooms, although clearly old rooms spruced up, had everything we needed and we had a comfortable night. It is so convenient, a quick walk to the ferry, a...

I agree that this is convenient for the port, not a fantastic area at night(quiet as opposed to anything I saw which bothered me) and also that the road noise may be a problem(but you can see this when you check in and ask for a quiet room in the back). Our room was clean, beds comfortable, matching furniture and...

Our family spent a month travelling around the islands. We only spent one night here, based on the proximity to the port, but would have stayed longer just because of the bed! In fact, it was the standard we used when mattress shopping recently, and nothing came close. Our rooom was great - we had one of the rooms on...

Life hotel is nice, clean, economical, but best of all there is an asian/ chinese/ sushi restaurant right down the street that is incredible. The place just opened. The name is Wasabi. Try the filipino souvaliki. We had spring rolls, hot and sour soup,white fish sushi, schezwan beef, and souvalki. Everything was out of this world!!!

We arrived at Heraklion by ferry at 6.30 am and walked to the hotel (200 m from the port). It was raining and dark in the morning. Taking advantage of the situation, the staff said we had to pay 25 euros for an early check-n which we refused to pay. So we were asked to leave and come back only...

We arrived at night and had to pass by an abandoned site which seemed to be the gathering place of homeless folks to get to the hotel. It's about 10min walk from the port and outside of the town. The reception staff were friendly and the check-in was quick, though we noticed there were very few occupants in the hotel....

We stayed only one night before an early morning flight, and for that it was perfect. It had clean rooms, friendly staff, and nice little cafe in the building. The people were very friendly and the service was excellent. The only downside was that there was quite a lot of noise from the street throughout the night.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night only on our way back to Barcelona. The hotel was almost empty. Nevertheless they gave us a very bad room with a unique window with a view to a small internal patio on the first floor. Very claustrophobic and quite a bad service experience. Decoration is of bad taste, ugly colors and...
