Flight got canceled had to find hotel close to airport in the middle of the night. The staff was so helpfull( especially Elena) basic but clean rooms, good breakfast, close to airport. The staff is amazing and very friendly
a nice clean, simple hotel half way from the so called airport to Heraklion centre right on the central high street and too close to hear the constant unbelievable noise of departing planes. By far too noisy, something which if you are not used to planes flying almost over your head, you cannot undestand... owners were very hospitable, and in general apart from the noise of the planes and constant hooting of drivers, Asterion is a nice value for money hotel.. there is no private parking, and this is very very difficult looking for space in neaby streets.. last but not least, housemaids were very noisy from early in the morning even at noon siesta time...the manager in fact apologised for this.
I chose this hotel because it was the cheapest, and it was a last minute reservation. I was surprised to find that it was clean, well decorated, cute hotel with strong air conditioning (that was super important for us, traveling during Greece's worst heat wave in 40 years!), and had a delicious complimentary breakfast in the morning. The best thing about this hotel was the very welcoming staff - Especially Eleni! What a treat after a long day of traveling to feel so welcomed by the staff. Dinner suggestions were provided, and there is a good taverna just across the street, so it is a nice location that is near the port and airport.
It was a good location, pretty clean. Pretty okay place if you need to spend the night and do not have high requests. At the reception, they helped us book a taxi. Everything was fine. The Rooms were pretty old (But clean), there was No window in our room, the window was Closed from the outside for some reason. Not enough space to open your luggage. You have to turn on the A/C to get some air, But then the air becomes Pretty dry.
I lodged here for just one night prior to an early departure flight -- and all this during an unusal time, when COVID-19 was erupting, particularly in Europe. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent pre-arrival communication. I particularly appreciated Asterion remaining open for me — I was its only guest, the night I stayed — and providing great accommodation during a very stressful time. Nice room, excellent WiFi, and Asterion’s staff were even kind enough to prepare the full-spread ‘included breakfast’ for just me with fresh-brewed coffee, fruit, eggs to order and so on at 04:30 in the morning (though breakfast is generally served 07:00 - 10:00). Exceptional service! A special thanks to Asterion for remaining open during the mid-March COVID-19 global meltdown. One recommended improvement: The water to the sink and shower seem to take 10-15 minutes before it warmed up and never did get very hot. Nice if it could arrive sooner at a higher temp. Small thing, you guys still rock!!!…
I had a late arrival into Heraklion airport so decided to find a hotel for the night before picking up my car rental. The hotel is less than 5 minutes from the airport however taxi drivers all seem to do a flat fee of €15 to Heraklion regardless the distance. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean but quite dated in furniture and style. The noise from aeroplanes is pretty loud but the air con drowns some of this out. Breakfast was included which was a spread of breads, jams, cereals and fruits. There looks like there used to be a pool to the rear of the hotel which is now drained and looking a little worse for ware. Good location, including a bus stop to the airport less than a minutes walk. I walked into Heraklion which took an easy 20 minutes and was worth a visit. It served a purpose but at around £55 the room not the cheapest place considering it is in need of modernisation. …
We chose this hotel because it was close to the airport and we had an early morning departure. It was perfectly adequate for this purpose. The staff were lovely, and the room was fine with comfortable beds and plenty of hot water in the bathroom. The decor, however, was rather depressing with brown, old fashioned furniture. Breakfast was only average.
We just stayed for one night to catch a plane in Héraklion airport. Very convenient place with taxi station in front and walking distance to the airport. Staff was very nice, warm welcome and very helpful !!!
