Where to stay in Heraklion

Heraklion serves as a convenient base for exploring Crete and draws big crowds with its centrally located hotels, which offer free Wi-Fi, secure parking, private swimming pools, and fitness facilities. Although pricey, staying in the city center also keeps you near the area's top shopping, dining, and entertainment. If you don't mind driving to shops and restaurants, explore the mid-range hotels and small inns farther away from the busy coastline, where you can choose a budget-friendly room with sea views and easy access to quiet beaches.

  • This cathedral is a must see if you are in Heraklion. Beautiful wall and ceiling paintings. The chandeliers in the cathedral very, very nice. Worth a visit, go there, you will not be disappointed.
  • A beautiful church, the painted ceilings are lovely. Flying home on a night out looked great all lit up from the sky
  • Stumbled in here by pure luck. Best frescoes I've ever seen (and I've been to Italy)! Completely stunning.
  • Very nice cathedral with plenty of icons.
  • Pretty church. Worth a visit.
