5/5 Excellent

Very happy with the accommodations. The food in the area was great.

5/5 Excellent

Nice place
Very clean and everything we needed to make it home from home. Algie greeted us and was very helpful. It was very central for the town centre and bus station. The area was quiet and had a nice street within walking distance to buy fresh vegetables and fruit, groceries and lovely fresh bread.

4/5 Good

4 new nights in old Heraklion
Generally a good experience; owner was friendly and helpful. Great location for walking around the old city and museum. Neighborhood was a little sketchy. Small bathroom.

5/5 Excellent

Charming House, Great Location
For starters, the courtyard is gorgeous. The owner tends the flowers and a climbing jasmine vine was blooming when we were there, so it smelled incredible. Just beautiful. The apartment was completely charming. The stone walls and vintage tile floors were really lovely and the bed was very comfortable. After touring during the day, we'd come home at night and open the windows with pull-down screens. Very nice. We were able to walk to restaurants, the water, museums, stores, etc. The location worked out really well for us and we always felt really safe, day and night. Lastly, the owner and his daughter were both wonderful to work with. She met us at the apartment, showed us around the place and recommended restaurants to us--all three were winners. He saw us off on the last day and we chatted about the apartment and the garden before we left. Both were great hosts. We would definitely stay there again!
