          • Group of friends
            3.8

            The toilet was not clean. There was a lot of noise from other rooms (we could hear the tv of other rooms) . We were informed that we could have internet acess at the hotel but unfortunately the reception asked extra money.

          • Group of friends

            Good price and location for overnight stop

          • Single
            7.0

            Clean and neat.

            What we didn't like we wish to explain, but, to be open about it, I do not think the Life Hotel would care. (They caused us 45 minutes delay in getting access to a prebooked room -- though there were two of us, we only wanted a safe place to store our baggage until we had to vacate at 8pm that night, but the reception did not seem to accept that as a reason for booking a single room -- it seemed they did not trust us. I am sure people do this sort of storage sometimes, and as there is no wear of the room, so it is in fact easy money for hotel). This is not a complaint -- it is a statement of our annoyance. At no time did my wife or I go into the single room together.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Within walking distance of main bus station and port/harbour, also town square with plenty of places to eat (10 - 15 mins walk). Bright, fresh decor and very helpful staff.

            Some people might find the bathrooms small, but I thought this was reasonable given the moderate price and good location. People who are sensitive to noise might find the location noisy, but I did not mind some road noise/aeroplane noise.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The hotel is just about 10 min walk to the port. The host and her daughter are very kind and helpful. When he knew I lost my wallet in the bus station, although it was already dark, he drove me to the police station for loss reporting.

            During my stay in the midnight, there was accidental electricity blackout in my room.

            Room, kindness of staff, atmosphere.

            Perfect location for the port and very close to main pedestrian shopping area.Well decorated romm and comfortable

          • Single
            7.4

            Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and cool. Convenient for port and caoch station.

            The neighbourhood is not attractive and the road is quite busy

          • Couple
            8.8

            Really loved the double bed; very large, very comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was very good, with all foods covered for protection. Don't miss the home-made cake at the breakfast! Really close to the port. Decent walking distance from the city center.

            The toilet was rather small and uncomfortable, but consider this not detrimental for the room.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Proximity to the port

            Very small elevator. Hard to get large suitcases in. Play pan was set up in our room at our arrival for our child to sleep in. Staff quick at responding to our needs

          • Family with children
            7.8

            The room was clean and spacious. we enjoyed our stay here but did feel it was a little overpriced when compared with other hotels. It was really close to the port and the bus for the airport stops outside.

            The wifi did not work for 4 of our 5 nights... The hotel is undergoing some improvements and was a little noisy.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            The staff were very friendly and helpful and the bed was extremely comfortable. Very convenient for the ferry port and the road out to Knossos.

            The bathroom was very small. It was a bit noisy on the street outside on the Saturday night (but the room was fairly well soundproofed). It was a 10-15 minute walk to the centre of Heraklion.

          • Single
            8.8

            Hotel Life is very near to the port. The staff is amazingly nice.

            The shower is quite small.

          • Couple
            7.0

            Ideal location for getting the ferry to Santorini. Very close to the port and 10-15 minuntes from the Centre of Heraklion. Also not too far from the airport. Hotel was clean and tidy. Air con worked. All we needed really for one night.

            The room has a double bed and a single bed, but felt small for just two of use. Three in the room would be a crowd. Advertises itself as a boutique hotel. But is not done to the style and quality to really call itself this.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Very clean and good facilities (Airco, TV, Bath, Hair dryer, Coffee bar), nice design and comfortable: carpet, good bed, luxury outlook. Very close to the harbour within 5 minutes walking, so excellent to take a morning ferry to an of the islands.

            A busy road and close to the airport, a bit noisy when planes come over.
