Will cme back for sure!from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Lato Hotel for one night only but next time I am in Heraklion I’ll definitely will stay there again! The rooms where comfortable and equiped to my demands!
A short story why I liked the hotel:
In the evening of my stay a sat in my room and watched the news on TV and had an appetite for pistachios which I found in the mini bar - nothing special until now - as i ate them i got a shock as I saw a little worm inside the package! (It was still good for one more year)
I was shocked, took the pistachios and went to the reception where the hotel director was called!
He sincerely apologized and invited me and my friend to the hotels fabulous restaurant for a four course menu including great wines on the house! This is what I call customer service! Even it was nobody’s fault at the hotel that the worm was inside the pistachios the management did everything to keep customers happy! I seriously appreciate that and will stay there again for sure! They even wrote me a christmas card!
Great Hotelfrom EH10014
The breakfast buffet had a very good selection and the free internet computer in the lobby was a nice touch.
There is a drop-off laundromat just across the street (6 Euro per load) which was very handy since we were in Greece for 3 weeks.
The only minor issue was parking. The hotel only has space for 6 cars so we needed to park on the street which was not always easy to find. But this is a small inconvenience for a reasonably priced, really good hotel.
We love the Lato!from nigoleta
Loved the Latofrom forensicsgirl
Checked-in without any problems. Our 4th floor room was clean. Beds were comfortable. Our balcony view of the Venetian fortress was a bonus since we didn't ask for a harbor view. In the lobby, there was a computer with internet access for hotel guests. In the morning, there was a small issue with water pressure which would flucuate from hot to cold.
The breakfast buffet was exceptional! Not only did the buffet contain the standard European assortment but it had Greek food as well. Spinach pie, cheese pie, Cretan tea, olives, pomegranites, etc. One of the best breakfast buffets I've seen in Europe.
Since our ferry back to Athens didn't leave until the late evening, the hotel staff didn't have a problem with holding our luggage. Luggage was kept in a separate room. There was an additional 5 Euros added to our bill. We didn't question it and just paid the bill.
The walk from the hotel to the harbor took about 10-15 minutes.
FYI - The bus station with buses running to Knossos is down the street from the hotel. After exiting hotel, make a left and follow sidewalk to Megaron hotel. In front of the Megaron hotel, make a left. You should see a staircase leading down to the lower level where the bus station is located. This bus station is less than 5 minutes from the Lato.
During our week long trip, this was the best hotel that we stayed in. If I returned to Heraklion, I would definitely stay here again.
Great viewfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We found the hotel to be very clean and in a good location. The breakfast was exceptional. (Great rice pudding!). We were a little disappointed with Heraklion but, if you are to stay there, we would recommend this hotel. We loved other parts of Crete.
Great support for the travellerfrom tilda54
Top Local Tips for Crete
Buses Don't have to rent car. Can easily use public buses toget anywhere on island.
Take advantage of the public bus Iraklion is a good base if you want to visit the Minoan palace or be close to the seaport so you can make a quick getaway by ferry to the islands, but for a nice day trip to Rethimnon, Chania, or Aigos whatever, try the public buses from the bus station in Iraklion. cheap, air conditioned, and comfortable, with spectacular seaside views along the way to your destination.
Traffic Iraklio is a sizeable city with a lot of traffic, which makes for noise. Motorbikes, in particular, are everywhere - even on the streets that are supposed to be reserved for pedestrians.
