....but it's very, very good for a base for a night if you're flying in in the evening and you need a place to stay for the night. It's literally 3 minutes by taxi from the airport, and it's plain, clean and functional. The staff are excellent; nothing's too much trouble. Breakfast is either the usual bread / jam / cheese / cold meat thing or there's bacon (European style, but good nonetheless) and fried chopped sausage with fried egg and a vegetable omelette type thing. Not bad at all.
The rooms are a good size by city hotel standards and comfortable.
We've used the Sofia for two years to stay after flying in to Heraklion in the evening, and just get the car hire company to deliver the car to the hotel next morning. Simples, no hassle, and a civilised start to a holiday.
