Today we woke up and spent our last breakfast and morning at Ikies. Our friend was absent for our day of departure. After breakfast we then took our juice and champagne to our hot tub and I made a mimosa. Around 10am it was time to shower and pack up all of our belonging which were a lot since we had our wedding. Now we have two backpacks and two …
... disappointed if there was nothing to see!!! Heraklion is good fun for a day but I wouldn't spend more than a day. You can cover most of it by walking around it. If the museum was open I guess you could spend all day in there! My mum would have definitely done ...
Today we spent the morning in Rethymnon, a lovely town about 60km East of Heraklion. We like Rethymnon way more than Heraklion. There is a lovely market in the old town and a beautiful little harbour area whit loads of restaurants by the water. Highly recommended!!! After spending a few hours in town we head for lunch in a little village by the sea, called Ayia Gallini. Food is nice and prices are good too. A nice place to stop for a bite. Next step, ...
... to the airport. Needless to say the trip back with Chris and Daniela is much more successful and we find the hotel first time, and arrive back just in time for a couple of aperitifs and dinner in the main restaurant, which is a buffet style affair, as the only other restaurant open tonight was the Italian :-) Off to bed early as looking forward to some more open top driving across the island to the quieter south ...
... on Perissa and had lunch at a place called Tanquilo. The restaurant was right on the beach and so after eating we went to the beach for swimming and sunbathing. The sea water was very warm and we had a relaxing time. We still had a couple hours before needing to be at the port, so we drove up to the highest point (or one of the highest points) on the island. It was a scary drive because ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mirabello Heraklion
Homelike atmosphere !!!!!!!!
I was impressed from the kindness of the man who received us, his mode of treating and helping us and the cleanness of the rooms also the central hotel location on the city center.
This hotel was the best!The peopke there were friendly,warm and polite with me.The rooms were excellent.The only problem there was that I couldn't see all the sea(only the half) and they didn't give Breakfast.My opinion is everytime you will visit Heraklion STAY in Mirabello.
Fantastic - Mirabello Hotel
The welcoming I received when staying at The Mirabello Hotel is the best I have had in my travels for the past 11months This hotel is all you could hope for and more... Situated in the centre of the city, it is within easy walking distance of all tourist sites. It has a fantastic view of the sea and the rooms are clean and tidy. The Staff are very friendly and always willing to help any way they can... Highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Heraklion!!!
The Only Place to Stay in Heraklion
The Mirabello Hotel is a warm and friendly place to stay. I had many questions about the island of Crete that were all answered in a quick, friendly fashion. My room was very comfortable and very well kept. The owners are very caring and made sure that my stay was enjoyable. I would recommend the Mirabello Hotel to everyone coming this way.
Home away from home
The Hotel Mirabello is exactly what I had hoped it would be. Centrally located, clean and reasonably priced. Sitting as it does in the heart of Iraklion it is an easy walk to El Greco Park and the Lion Fountain near where the No. 2 bus takes its passengers to Knossos. Also within easy walking are the Archaeological Museum, the central bus station and the port.
Even more than I had hoped for are the people who run the hotel. They provided clear and accurate directions to the places I wanted to go, recommended good restaurants, generously offered greek coffee as I checked my e-mail at the computer station in the hotel lounge and help arrange lodgings at my next stop.
I can whole heartedly recommend the hotel to anyone who will be stopping in Iraklion on their travels through Greece.
An enjoyable experience at the Mirabello Hotel
As a woman who travels solo, it is important for me to find accommodations that are clean, comfortable, quiet, and give me a feeling of security. The Mirabello pro- vided all of the above at a very reasonable rate.
The room provided all of the necessities. I particularly appreciated the large tiled bathroom.
My only recommendation (and it is minor) would be to install a reading light above the bed.
That aside, everything was perfect, including exceptional hospitality!
Great find in Heraklion
I arrived late yesterday and Kostas, the Hotel owner, cheerfully offered me a room with private shower for a reasonable amount, even though I didn't have a reservation. The room is clean, spacious and quiet. The next day he recommended a car rental company that also gave me a very good deal for 2 weeks rental. His English is excellent (unlike my Greek) and I can highly recommend it.
Great place to stay
Hotel Mirabello is a well-priced, spotless and conveniently located hotel in the heart of Heraklion, close to all the major tourist sites, ports and amenities. It also caters for solo travellers, and staff are friendly and keen to be helpful! I would definitely recommend it to anyone planning on a stay in Heraklion, and will certainly return to stay next time!
Good hotel, great hospitality
You couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Heraklion than the Mirabello Hotel. It's inexpensive, bright, airy, and clean, and within 10 mins walk to everything there is to see and do in Crete's capital city. Almost all rooms have a balcony, many with fine views of the sea. There are also many single rooms, for those who travel solo, like myself. The management is super-friendly, in that genuine Greek way, and will give advice on good places to eat, etc., that generally attract more locals than tourists. I was going to stay two nights, I ended up staying five. Many people who visit Crete are anxious to get to the coastal resorts and don't bother to spend time in Heraklion--but they're missing out. The city is well worth your time, and the staff at the Mirabello will help you find the best of it.
