best budget for Heraklion City center
Property is as described. a bit old and beds are not super comfortable and specially for ladies... but the location and the price are highlights of this centrally located old styles hotel. if you are a budget traveller who wants to live right in the center of the city.. this is probably the best and only option even in peak season.

Could smell sewage. Even though I paid for breakfast and didn't eat any of the pastries, staff complained that I drank too much tea (4 cups) and wanted to charge me more for it

The best location in Heraklion.
The best location in the square centre, surrounded by great eateries, bars, cafes and shops, yet so quiet. Lovely, friendly staff too. Loved the view from the balcony. The lobby area though, needs brightening up, especially the bar and breakfast area. Great value though.
The location is great.
Lots of cheap eateries within five minutes walk.
One minute walk away.

Could not lock door from inside hotel room, no lock on bathroom door, paper thin doors and walls so very noisy, had to leave key with front desk each time we left, shower was smaller than a phonebooth and got entire bathroom floor wet, bed was barely a step above sleeping on the floor

Centrum na dosah
Slušný hotel přímo v centru - čístý, udržovaný. Jednoduchá snídaně. Možná malá koupelna a těsný sprchový kout by se daly vytknout. Nastavená cena ubytování odpovídá.
