Within 325 ft from the center of the city, the Kastro Hotel is well-situated for exploring the ancient sites of Heraklion. It has spacious, air-conditioned rooms with breakfast included in the rate.

Electrisity disappeared several times with no appearent reason at all.
Family run hotel. So friendly and couldn't do enough for us. They even moved their own car so we could park ours.
staff were excellent, even printed our boarding tickets for the next days flight. So close to the airport
Hotel was very close to the airport (less than 3 minutes drive). Whilst it was close to the airport the room was very quiet. The staff were extremely friendly and recommended excellent places to eat as their restuarant did not open until March. As our flight was at 6:40 we didn't expect breakfast and were delighted when at 5am coffee and a light buffet breakfast were waitinf for us! Would definitely stay there again.
The Sofia Hotel is in a strategic position, for whom wants to discover Heraklion and Crete, arriving to Heraklion airport and wants to rent a car. The position in the Alikarnassos neighborhood, little far from the center but full of services, is ok for who needs some quietness. The rooms and the services are so good for a 3 star hotel and for the price, but most of all, the staff is very very friendly, especially the young owner, Sofia, who will give you any kind of information about Crete and its history. An example: she warmly suggested me the Kazantzakis museum, after my visit to Cnossos, I've been there without knowing the author (but only some of his cinematographic transposition from his books), and I loved it so much. If you go to Crete, you have to follow her advices.
THE STAFF WAS REALLY FRIENDLY, AND ALWAYS HAPPY TO HELP WITH ANY REQUESTS. GOOD LOCATION AS IT IS 5 MINUTES DRIVE FROM THE AIRPORT AND 5 MINUTES DRIVE FROM THE INDUSTRIAL AREA NICE AND CLEAN ROOMS .
The taxi who refused to switch his meter on and declared, once at airport, that the 500m would be € 9.50!! Unfortunately there is not much time to call the police when you are booked on the 6:40h flight and it was raining hard that morning. Next time I would stay in town for the night.
Warm and professional welcome. Most helpful staff. Close to airport for 1st flight out in the morning.
Position to Airport and Heraklion. Great Staff. Good facilities.
Comfortable family atmosphere. Location close to airport. Staff very obliging.
very friendly and good place to stay
restaurants not easy to find
location near the airport is very convenient when you arrive late at Heraklion. Service is very efficient: fast check in, good late dinner.
I stayed at hotel Sofia for an unexpected 8 nights. During that time I had some odd requests, all of which were met with the most fantastic help. All of the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with suitable facilities. The hotel is a short bus ride or a decent walk into town, and has nice restaurants nearby. A very friendly hotel. I will definitely be staying there again
The staff members were wonderful and friendly helping us orient ourselves during our first night in Crete. We wanted a place that would be in a spot close to the airport but still "in town" and the Sofia was very easy. The morning breakfast was very good, too.
Lots of noise, could hear every movement from those around and also the refrigerator made noise all through the night, then just when I thought I could drop off to sleep telephones were ringing to wake guests ready for the off.
The staff were great and very helpful, nothing too much trouble, breakfast was surprisingly good. Well worth the money. We booked to get to the airport the following day and were able to go to Knossos beforehand, so great killing 2 birds with one stone.
We are made to feel at home.
Nothing much. No frills but a good clean commercial hotel. Not in best of areas but very convenient for airport.
very helpful staff in clean modern hotel.ideal for airport stopover. and easy ride into city. A bit tired here and there but great value for money. We stayed 2 nights on arrival and leaving Crete and it was good on both occasions. Nice pool. Staff let us check out late without problem.
I stay at this hotel when I come over to Crete. I usually visit 3 times a year. It is really close to the airport and convenient for my onward journey to Palekastro. The staff are really lovely and friendly and always there to assist. I feel very relaxed and safe at the hotel, especially as I mostly travel on my own.
Breakfast is very poor in all aspects - presentation, quality, variety. I felt they could do much better. There are 2 tiny sachets (like tea sachets) of bath gel/shampoo in the bathroom. That's it! Barely enough to wash your face! After my soapless morning shower I bumped into one of the housekeeping staff. I asked her to 'pleeeease give me more soap. I can't shower with what was there! Next day I had 3 sachets! Just terrible. Very frustrating to feel that the hotel is saving money to the detriment of my hygiene! To add to the frustration there are two empty liquid soap dispensers. One by the sink, the other in the shower. So you can't help but bang that button in hope for an extra drop!
The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you're ok. I had dinner twice and on both occasions the food quality was good. There are vending machines in the lobby full of lots of different nibbles
Located on a quiet street in a primarily residential neighborhood, but just a three minute drive to the airport. The staff was very courteous and offered to have breakfast available to us ahead of the scheduled time since we had an early flight. A small dinner menu was available at the pavilion next to the hotel pool. There is a pharmacy just across the street. The room was clean and roomy. We had a whirlpool tub in our room.
Hotel could use a bit of refurbishing: furnishings & décor has seen better times. Eventhough we've requested quiet rooms, the noise from the airplanes make it quite difficult to sleep. Bring earplugs if you stay at this hotel.
Location is convenient to get to the airport quickly.
Relatively far from old town, but if have your car no problem
Hotel near airport, good for day before or after flight. Had good parking lot. Elevator.
Location - a short taxi ride from the airport. Very good value for the price.
a little bit of luxury near the airport for a good overnight rest. Surprised to find pool with bar which served food until late. Staff were very helpful.
