Clean, very modern, a 3 minute walk from the Knossos museum, good WiFi (40-50Mbps) and a 10% discount tie-in with a quality cafe (with amazing Melbourne, Australia quality barista coffee) called Crop which is a 3-minute walk away.Our room was appropriate for a family of four (the kids had their own separate room with Netflix and YouTube available on the TV) and the service from Γιάννη was excellent, he responds on WhatsApp within a few short minutes to any query!Highly recommended and thank you for the great stay Γιάννη!

Giannis was a most attentive host - each room was separately named and thoughtfully and well laid out. We had 'serious' luggage with which Giannis was very helpful.Our room also had two balconies - for morning and evening.Fabulous stay at Domus Ariadne - made our experiences in Heraklion and close other towns very special.

Very nice five night stay. Room was very comfortable and a fantastic location handy to the port, bus station, museum and the vibrant life of the old city. Host Giannis was welcoming and helpful. Tea and coffee provided in the room along with a bar fridge.

Very nice small boutique hotel, at an extremely convenient place at the center of the city. The rooms are bright, spacious, very clean and nicely decorated. Owners are very kind and helpful. The breakfast is absolutely amazing. You can choose what you want and they bring it in your room at the time you want.The only disadvantage is the lack of parking. It's hard to park around there, so you will probably end up paying for parking.Overall, really good and highly recommended.
