10/10 Exceptional

An excellent base
The Sofia is exceptional value for money for an hotel in close proximity to the airport. It ticks all the boxes and is still as good as my last stay in 2014

Convenient to airport, with pool!
Stayed here just one night before flying out of Heraklion airport, which is about 3 minutes drive from Sofia Hotel. The property is nice, and even though we didn't have time to use it, the pool looked very inviting. There are snack bar & breakfast options, but we didn't try them. I must've accidentally booked us a triple, or else something got lost in translation, because we ended up with extra beds but the room looked like it was built for 1 (or 2 twins), so it was crowded in there, but it was fine for the night. We slept in the one which looked like it had been brought in as extra, because the usual one was extremely hard without any padding. Other than that, no complaints, and definitely a good spot for an overnight coming into or out of the airport in Heraklion.
