Primarily the location is great if you're looking to stay for one night before flying, however do not be conned by the sign that says breakfast is served until 11:30 because that my friends is a lie - it is only served until 11 and thus we were very hungry. The staff were ok, could have been a little more helpful but all in all the rooms were really nice and shampoo was provided.


Everything during our short stay was great. Staff on arrival was very friendly and welcoming. On departure, the staff member accidentally overcharged us (balance was in US$ but he charged in €). We didn't feel a need to go back and complain however because everything was so lovely.


We had a wonderful time. Very clean, the facilities are new, the air conditioning is perfect and the staff was very sweet. It is a one star hotel but the quality is a lot more. Thank you!!


We were totally impressed by the Hotel Rhea - we hope everyone will go there - our stay was perfect! Thank you Hotel Rhea Judy LeCash and David cooper

The hostel was very noisy. You'd hear people talking loudly all through the night or street noise even though it's not directly on a major street. I found it very hard to sleep so I'm glad I only stayed the one night. Other than that, the beds were comfortable and the rooms and bathrooms were clean.


Room was clean and nice, and staff were very helpful and friendly (always someone on reception when we passed through). Internet wasn't working the first night but very good the following night. Good location, very near bars and restaurants, and our shared bathroom was very clean and in great condition.


Hotel was very nice, clean, central, with helpful staff. Would stay there again. It is located on a small side street which was very difficult to find. Directions from hostel world add and google maps not helpful, had to ask people for directions and eventually found it by chance after buying a map. English maps and street signs often don't match in Iraklio, so ask for directions.
