I lobed that it was central to the old town but it was on a quiet corner. Also, the apartments were excellent and the Hosts were also very friendly. I would definitely return with my family. Thanks, Sandra

This place is such an amazing find. The apartment is super modern, clean, and stylish. It is a two minute walk to central areas with excellent food and shopping. There is a great coffee shop right out the door. The staff obliged everything we asked for or needed. There is quite a bit of street noise until late at night so it might not be the best option for light sleepers, but in Europe, that is the prive of being very close by the city center.

The kind and helpful people at the CityLion apartments office made our stay in Heraklion a dream come true! Super friendly and SO competent!! A BIG thank you to Effie and Chryssa for always responding to any questions with a big smile and a can-do attitude! These guys are so genuine and incredibly nice and they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and happy! The property is very central to amazing dining and shopping, but at the same time in a wonderfully quiet and safe neighborhood. Everything was super clean and new! The daily housekeeping was a bonus! Book City Lion for your stay in Heraklion and you won’t ever regret it!

The hotel was very modern and had a very welcoming feel. The whole place was bright and comfortable. the room had everything you could need with a well fantastic kitchen and sitting area. The bathroom was superb and the bedroom was fantastic and the bed was so comfortable. The air conditioning was nearly silent which was great. The hotel is very close to everything you need and the lady that welcomed us to the hotel was very helpful. What a fantastic hotel.

We were very happy with our 6 night stay in a comfort studio. The room was comfortable and well furnished. The property is located on a quiet street less than a 5-minute walk from Lion Square. Christos, the owner and his staff were very attentive, helpful and responsive to our requests. We highly recommended this accommodation.
