The Sofia Hotel is located at 1.5 kilometer distance from the airport and generally taxis will charge you 10 EUR to get there. The rooms are big and confortable. The breakfast is rather simple. Being next to the airport also means hearing the noise of the aircraft early in the

We stayed at this hotel twice over eight days after reading good reviews on various sites and because it is close to the airport and therefore handy for taking off to other parts of Crete. (Just return to the airport, right on the roundabout and you are on your way to western or

Rather small rooms with simple decoration and somewhat dated. Only a small minibar is offered in room, you will find that no teapot,coffee maker or water heater is available. The bathroom however is a positive, because the shower cabin can be completely shut; it will prevent the

First stayed back in 2007 as a base to explore Heraklion for a few days - Returned for one night in August 2018 and the hotel feels equally welcoming for an airport sleepover. Room's are fine, breakfast good and enjoyed the pool for a morning swim. Visited Krasas for local

The hotel is open all year, so cannot think why the pool would be closed. I'm sure there will be cooked food available. However, there is a little family run taverna on the main road, 10 mins walk. Email Sofia (actual person and very friendly). She will get back to you. We love staying there and have done so for many years. Chris

Hi no free shuttle service from this hotel but it’s so easy to go down the road and get the airport bus it’s very cheap or you can walk from the hotel. Will take you about 20 minutes.

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!

"Avoid the smaller rooms with the gap in the shower cubicle (see attached)"
"Doesn´t matter much, any room will do for a short stay."
"Front facing rooms face the busy street (it is close to Iraklion city remember). Rear rooms look toward the airport runway."
"rooms facing away from the airport"
"Room 220 is large has a balcony (good for drying clothes) and faces in the opposite direction to the airport."
