We stayed here for 2 weeks commencing 6th October. We did a late booking with Thomsons and got a really good deal. We reached the apartments between 2 and 3 pm after a relatively short drive from Heraklion Airport. The coach drops off on the main road and it is a short walk to the apartments. There is a sign...

Let me start by saying that I have never refused to stay in a hotel before. This hotel was the exception to the rule. After being dropped off at the side of a busy road, we were directed to to walk 100m down a dark lane to find the hotel. We found it fairly easily as it was just a... More

Very nice from the outside, friendly staff, swimming pool. Bathrooms have to be renovated and bed linen better washed. Beds are not very comfortable, table for eating is too small for 4 people. Very nice courtyard with lemon tree and little table, you can also eat outside. All in all it is a fine accomodation, perfect for visiting archeological sites... More

My partner and I have just returned from 10 days at the Ourania. This small complex is perfect for a chilled out break, set in beautifully kept gardens, with a pool and a bar which serves breakfast and lunch. The appartments and the facilities are spotlessly clean and well looked after. Our one bedroom appartment (no 119) had a kitchen... More

Just spent a great week here and cannot fault a thing with Ourania. The facilities, bar, pool and surroundings are the best. Clean rooms, olive trees, plenty of chairs and loungers for all.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There’s a lot to be said for a small, peaceful hotel. If you’re looking to really chill out, you won’t get much peace at a bustling mega hotel. So that’s where the Ourania Apartments come in.You won’t find a huge resort packed with guests, but that’s its charm. What you do get is pin-drop peace and quiet, along with a bit of good old fashioned Greek hospitality. ... more   less
