"Great staff, convenient location"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Oct 9, 2012
I usually don't stay in hotels when I come to Crete, Heraklio, especially but since I had only 9 days and needed to be central I opted for one. I chose Pasiphae based on availability, proximity to city centre and price. I am very happy with this decision. Upon arrival, the owner was very accommodating and helpful.I had booked a single and was very pleased with the size, per Greek standards in this hotel-range. The room was very clean upon entry and a/c, towels, sheets, soap, body wash, mini-fridge, and tv. The owner told me about their use of a local laundromat, Clean Up, which comes and picks up clothes, launders them and returns them next day for a great price. There is a nearby small grocery which covers all basic necessities and a larger Spar (Χαλκιαδακις) just a tiny bit farther. There is also a bank, pharmacy, pet store, seamstress and many restaurants within 2 blocks. They offer breakfast, which I never took advantage of, as well as beverages and a great patio in front. Their free wifi is reliable. On the third day, after raining all day, my room experienced a small leak and they were quick to offer me another room very quickly. There is a bus stop just up the road on the Main Street which can take you many places, the main bus terminal is about 10 min walk away, or it is a 15 min leisurely walk to get to city centre. Overall, I've been VERY pleased and would gladly stay here again on my next trip!
