Fine to be backing Heraklion

Sofia Hotel
Great Service but beware- near the airport
We arrived on the express ferry from Santorini at 7.30. After checking into the hotel we were able to enjoy their restaurant next to the pool. The following morning we had a reasonable breakfast. One of the staff members spent time giving us information on Heraklion and also on the rest of Crete. In general the hotel is laidback but I have to compliment the staff. Whenever I requested anything the response was instant. The only down side to this hotel is that it is near the airport. This did not bother me but would be an issue for any who is noise sensitive. The flights stop at midnight and start again at 6. It is not a very busy airport so the noise is not ongoing.

Convenient, Comfortable and Friendly
This was our second time at Sofia Hotel. we arrived Friday 15th September after a late flight. It's conveniently close to the airport. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. We ate a light tasty meal, followed by cretan wine. We felt so relaxed. The hotel offers a comfortable nights stay. By morning we felt refreshed. Breakfast was most pleasant sat outside. It's up to you if you sit in or out. The choice of breakfast was vast. It ranges from continental, cooked, cereals, fruit and local pastries. Once rejuvenated, we were ready to journey to our holiday destinations, in our hire car. We recommend Sofia Hotel as being a good starting point for your holiday.

Just fine for 1 overnight stay. Very very noisy since it is quite close from the airport. Room is ok.
