The hotel is located only 10 mins from Iraklion Airport. Taxi there is €15. A bus is possible as well and most of them go every 20 mins. Very easy. Buy tickets in local newspaper shops, as there is an additional "penalty" fee when buying in the bus. The hotel is very clean. The pool too. The nearby beach bar is very convenient and clean. Takes around 10-15 min walk. The beds were slightly hard for my taste, but nothing negative for only 4 days. For longer stays I would prefer a bit softer.
This hotel is quite cheap and value for money. The main problem is with a dog, maybe an pet of the owner. My last night in the hotel the dog barked in about 5 AM. I thought, it woke up a lot of guests. After about one half hour staff closed the dog somewhere but I was sleepy and very afraid that I overslept and did not catch my plane. The dog went along guests when they ate and wanted food too. I saw one young lady (guest) who was afraid of the dog and she went around the dog.
Pretty basic but good if you're on a budget and don't mind being woken at 6 am by the roar of jet engines! Staff very friendly and helpful. Evening meal was good value (had the special set menu), but not matched by breakfast which was very limited.

The hotel is located quite far from the centre of Heraklion. Room was very basics down hot. Staff were not very helpful in assisting with enquiries.
For the staff: your job is to be there for the customerscustomers at the front desk. Not to go talk with your friends outside and smoke all evening.
