FAQs about hotels in Heraklio









The Cradle of Minoan Civilisation

Nowadays known as the capital of the Greek island of Crete, Heraklion was once the centre of the Minoan civilisation and the port of the ancient Knossos. This stunning gem features rich history, outdoor markets and important archaeological sites.

Just 6 km from the lively Heraklion is the world-renown ruins of the Knossos palace, where according to the Greek mythology Daedalus built a labyrinth to hold the Minotaur.

Home to the 16th-century church of Agia Ekaterini, the cathedral of St. Minas, Venetian Loggia and the Archaeological Museum, this destination is much more than just a cosmopolitan city with vibrant nightlife. Do not forget to wander around the old port or visit the Venetian Walls.

Beach lovers can discover some of the most popular places of Crete like the tourist resorts of Malia and Hersonissos, the golden beach of Amoudara and the fishing village of Agia Pelagia.

The international airport of Heraklion, Nikos Kazantzakis, is the largest one in the island and the second busiest in Greece. Situated about 4 km from the city centre, it offers seasonal flights to Vienna, Barcelona, Zurich and St. Petersburg. Booking.com offers a great variety of hotels in Heraklion.

    The town/city has many new buildings after WW2.

    The town/city has many new buildings after WW2. There is an extensive shopping area with many restaurants and bars, the older buildings are either being replaced or renovated, but the outlying suburbs need development and some proper Town & Country planning application. The boundaries between domestic, retail, industry & commerce need greater definition. Great potential for tourism, with areas of domestic and tourist housing showing signs of its artistic residents "flare".

    This is good for a weekend trip, but if you are staying longer hire a car and tour, landing here and returning via Chana. We took out the extra insurance via Booking.com, very wise because the vehicle was hit by a driver while parked, who drove off. Due to the state of the roads and the increased traffic this is common, there was another couple in the hire office that had also been hit while parked. Standards of driving in Greece are poor. Booking.com paid out within 24 hours of the claim. This was a return visit to Crete after 20 years. The nation is in steep decline with appalling infrastructure and an unhappy population. We will not return.

    Heraklion is now the main city of Crete, where years ago it...

    Heraklion is now the main city of Crete, where years ago it was Chania. Over recent years the central area has been upgraded with paved walking to the shops and square. If you look upwards you can still see the signs of previous Venetian times and around old constructions. There is a street market area now selling the usual tourist pieces, which has changed from a market that had fruit, vegetables, fish etc. The side streets still have the small restaurants of old. As you walk down towards the harbour area you should visit Ligo Krasi, Ligo Thalassa as their food is superb traditional Cretan and used by locals. The harbour area is good to walk along and watch the cruise ships and ferries. Ferries leave from Heraklion daily to local islands such as Santorini and provide an excellent service. The modernised bus station just 15 minutes from centre will allow you to move to all areas of Crete on clean efficient buses. Heraklion can get very busy during the weekend or bank holiday times, when locals visit and sit around the square in the cafes and small bars, providing a great atmosphere.

    Heraklio is a great place to visit!.

    Heraklio is a great place to visit!. We stayed for over a month and were never bored. There is a very extensive pedestrian area with a huge variety of shops, places of cultural interest, restaurants and snack bars. The local cuisine is reasonably priced. The city is very busy with locals and tourists mixing in the pedestrian areas. Heraklio is a great base for visiting the rest of the island as most of the major urban areas are also on the north coast. There are very efficient local and regional bus services and of course car and moped hire. For those interested in history and culture Heraklio is the place to visit. I do recommend reading up on the incredible history of the island before visiting as this will help the visitor better understand the context of what they are visiting. We visited in March to April and combined a city holiday with a beach holiday. There are two very long beaches very near the city centre. Almost everyone we met spoke very good English so we never really got to use any of the little Greek we learned before travelling. In one month we never used any cash as all business take electronic payment per mobile phone, credit cards etc.

    I went to Santorini Island from the hotel offered tours, it was amazing, the most beautiful trip, saw the Blue churches, dunkies, white traditional houses, the environment in the island, etc. The hotel administration were so sweet, since we missed breakfast due the trip, they provided us with a little breakfast package. The rooms were cleaned everyday, as well as new towels were provided! The view from the room was just magical - one side city centre, one - the sea. Location was better than expected - near the old town.

    The customer service was excellent, the room was comfortable and quiet, and the breakfast was fantastic. They worked to fix quickly address any issue or problem we faced. I highly recommend this hotel. We enjoyed the jacuzzi as well. In other hotels in Crete, the showers are often extremely small, you have to press a special button and wait to use the hot water, and you can't throw toilet paper in the toilet. That wasn't the case here. Everything was comfortable and easy.

    Location is good if you need to spend night near airport. 30 min walk to airport (with carry on bags) - could be not an option when it is hot but we walked at 6:30 am. Though Christina could book a taxi if you wish. Room is new, super clean, comfortable, contemporary design - we stayed in Eutopia room. Nicely decorated with great attention to details. Cannot complain for noise because there are no planes at night. Would highly recommend if you need to stay near airport.

    Good for business trip. Don’t choose it if you are a tourist, maybe just for two-three nights only. Close to city center and harbor. Pool on the roof is useless, very small and always busy with other people or their towels. But view from there is stunning. Bed and room were very comfortable. Lobby is not what I would expect from 5* hotel. But coffee at the breakfast was much better than anywhere in Crete.

    The property was recently renovated. So everything was brand new. The point that I liked the most since I was working during the day was the internet which is quite good for Crete. The second best it is the AC system it is perfect. I missed a grill outdoors. It would be good. Lol. The host is extremely friendly. Sent a lot of tips to go around. Made us feel like home.
