          Individual guest reviews

          • Single
            8.2

            Excellent room, bed, and bathroom. Very conveniently located close to airport (but not so close to city)

            We asked for an early wake-up call as we had to catch our flight......no call received (!)

          • Family with children
            8.8

            Very nice hotel, great value for money, very clean, quiet, with friendly staff. The rooms are refurnished in modern style. The restaurant is very good.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Comfortable room, quiet, good buffet breakfast. Quick access from the airport ( we landed at 22.30 hours) and easy access to the bus station for our onward journey to Hania. Reception staff pleasant.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Ideal location near the airport, nice and quite place (except from aircraft noise). Good breakfast buffet, WLAN and Internet Services

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            As we were to arrive at Heraklion just befor midnight we decided to stay overnight before travelling to our holiday destination in the west of Crete. The Sofia was ideal - close to the airport, clean, friendly and value for money.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Staff were friendly. Free parking. Pool. Good value at 64eur/night. Since our flight was late at night they very kindly allowed us to keep our room until 7pm at no extra charge, and then kept our bags safe until 10pm.

            I booked this thinking it would be handy to be close to the airport. But since the airport is only 3km from the town, it would have been more convenient to be closer to town. The pool was small and had a bit too many bugs and leaves in it, although otherwise seemed clean enough. The rooms are clean and well-appointed, but small.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Amability of the staff and the room space.

            Very high noise due to nearby airport.

          • Single
            7.8

            Very close to the airport - only 5 mins by taxi. Nice pool to relax by. Hotel staff were very good.

            Wouldn't stay here for more than one night. It is too far from the center but great for an early or late flight although taxi from the airport cost 15 euro and it is only 5 mins away.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            Convenient to airport. Pool and pool snack bar an added bonus.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            The beds were comfy, the air conditioning and shower worked really well. The reception staff on arrival were very welcoming and helpful.

            It is only a minor issue but the breakfast was not as nice as last year

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            This hotel is tucked into a nice little neighborhood and yet is only about a 5 minute drive to the airport. The hotel has a beautiful pool and a nice restaurant. There is also a good bakery very close. Parking is free and convenient!

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Convenient for late flight arrival - lovely clean room and very friendly staff.

          • Couple
            7.4

            We arrived at the hotel after 10.00pm and found the pool side bar still opening and serving food, perfect for a late arrival from the airport.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            The room was very spacious - we had a quadruple room which we thought was very good vfm and very handy for the airport

            There was a restaurant on site but it did not have much choice for an evening meal and there was very little within walking distance when we had imagined there would be a good few tavernas to choose from. Would definitely recommend as an o/night for the airport.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            This is a very conveniently sited airport hotel which provides good, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. The complimentary local wine in the room was a bonus.

            Food wasn't available in the evening on one of the times when we used it (but they would have ordered a take-away for us).
