17 Heraklion hotels

In the north of Crete, the hotels of Heraklion enjoy a legendary atmosphere. When arriving at the old port, the city appears to be a disorganised jumble of urbanism where charmless modern constructions pile up on the ruins in stark contrast to the beauty of Koules Fortress. Dominating the old port, affordable hotels with more than suitable amenities are ticked away amongst the urban mess. These mid-range properties have sea views, swimming pools, beautiful terraces and great locations, making them great options for your stay in Heraklion. If you wander round the shopping streets of the town, you will come across several hotels, notably in the pedestrian zone close to the Morosini fountain amongst the cafés and restaurants. The fountain, which has water spouting from four lions and landing in eight basins ornamented with marine creatures, is an example of the Venetian architecture found all over the city. To the east, the archaeology museum exhibits treasures covering the Neolithic period up until the Roman period. The 5,000 years of history on show at the museum makes it one of the most important in Greece. For the most authentic of experiences, you should try and stay in one of the traditional lodgings on the island, to be booked once on site.
