Travellers' Choice
The dramatic views of the Venetian fortress at the old city harbor of Heraklion, and the wonder-filled waves of the Cretan Sea, are among the most photographed tourist attractions on Crete island. Not many visitors can enjoy the full panoramic grandeur of these contemplative landscapes, the way our guests at Lato Boutique Hotel can.Standing for more than 35 years above the marina, our hotel operates 365 days a year without interruptions. Famous for authentic Cretan hospitality, Lato Boutique Hotel is the most welcoming establishment in this part of the city, a magnet for romantic couples, but also for families, and business travelers. Being at the center of the old Heraklion town, the peaceful and colorful central market is only a few steps away. The museums, the Venetian harbor with the fishing boats and the yacht marina, the parks, the gardens, the city cafes and all ancient Heraklion lays at the foot of our front doorstep, your front doorstep.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a great find. A modern, comfortable, clean hotel, with fabulously helpful staff and excellent food. We arrived late and were able to get a great late dinner and the breakfast the following morning was exceptional. Highly recommended, thank you for making our first night in Crete such a pleasure.

Hotel's Favourite
Traveling to Heraklion for business quite often I have tried a few hotels in the past and now I have found my hotel for my trips to Heraklion . I am so staying again at Lato ! Very friendly staff , very good breakfast, parking available close by . Quiet and close to the city center , also very clean . The rooms are simple but modern and practical offering everything you would need . As said before not trying other hotels , this will be my choice for all my next trips !

Look, I have traveled all over the world, but this has been by far the most delicious food I have ever had. The friendly and welcoming staff at the Lato Boutique Hotel also added to this 'taste-orgasm'. I will most definitely visit Heraklion again, just to experience this all over again! Thank you!

Overlooking the old Venetian harbour and castle, the Lato Boutique Hotel is perfectly placed to look out over the sea and an easy walk into the centre of Heraklion. The rooftop Herbs restaurant serves great food and is a wonderful place to relax and watch the evening light turn into dark, with the fortress and harbour become all lit up. The staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. A highly recommended hotel as a base for exploring the whole of Western Crete with its mountainous terrain and ancient Minoan sites.

Have stayed there many times through the years- my returning is already a recommendation- there are many hotels in Heraklion, but I do not feel any need to change. Great location, very helpful and friendly staff, good breakfast, wonderful rooftop restaurant.

After our vacations we decided to stay one day in the Lato Boutique Hotel. So we wanted something special. Our surprise was very big when we arrived as the exterior of the hotel is amazing. The staff are friendly as helpful and they wanted to help us a lot with everything that we wanted about our visit! The room was spacious and well designed with big bathroom and nice amenities! We booked to come again next year! Recommend it for sure!!

What a friendly place. From the minute we walked in to the minute we left we were treated so well. The breakfast was comprehensive and delicious. The roof top restaurent was special and the food was fabulous. The room was well presented and the bed was large and comfortable . Check out was speedy and a taxi was called by reception and was there in 3 minutes. We were sorry to leave

Always want comfortable & clean as a basic requirement & this was more than adequate, much more, in fact!! The hotel was a gem, fantastic spot BUT the staff were the biggest thrill, as most of us on a tour of 17 agreed!!! Super location, breakfast lovely with options I really enjoyed. If I ever return to Crete this will be my first choice, by a country mile. Thanks all at the Lato, a wonderful 4 nights & I hope to see everyone again!!

The hotel was in a good location and walkable from the ferry. On edge of old town and intercity bus stop was walkable also. Breakfast was great and restaurant looked great but we didn't use. However, we didn't actually stay in the building shown in the photos or have the same views. We stayed in a building across the road and had to walk across for breakfast etc. Rooms were OK but again not like the photos
