The hotel was very noisy. The breakfast was not very good. The hotel is a little far from the city center. Overall, as the other hotel we stayed at in Heraklion, it is quite expensive for what you get compared to the rest of Crete. Otherwise, the staff was friendly and the room was clean.

Athinaikon Hotel is within walking distance from the port and in close proximity to the city center, making it an ideal location for people that don't want to venture outside of Herakleion city (ie businessmen). Hotel staff were friendly, the room was clean, a little bit old-fashioned and tiny. The mattress and pillow were comfortable for me. The bathroom was...

Very conveniently located from the airport, this hotel is a decent option for a night stopover. The bathroom is quite vintage and our fridge was extremely noisy for the whole night. City center 15 mins away on foot. The staff is very welcoming and nice

I am a well seasoned budget traveler with only two hates: rooms that stunk of smoke and staff who lie. This place has both. The room stinks and when we got here hot and bothered late in the day asking where the port was we were told no point going as everything was shut and the ferry we wanted tomorrow...

We stayed here two different nights during the same week, once to visit Knossos and Heraklion and another time coming back from Vai. Both times we found free parking right in front of the hotel. The rooms have all the basic amenities, are quiet (even if they give on the street) and inexpensive. But the great asset of this family...

The room and the bathroom need renovation: There weren't enough lights so the room was too dark, there were many cables of electricity on the walls, the bathroom was very small and the shower was tiny with a annoying curtain both of them improperly located and when we were having a shower the water was splitting all around the bathroom....

Stayed here on two separate nights at the end of September. Met three different staff members and they were all as helpful and friendly as they were three years ago when I last stayed. The hotel is very much the same also. We stayed in rooms 310 and 308. It is worth noting that 308 has a hand held shower...
