We stayed nearly two weeks in this excellent flat in the centre of Heraklion.. We were met by Defkalion who was charming and immensely helpful. The flat was clean, comfortable and well-appointed.There are wonderful views from the large terrasse, but it was let down by the poor state of the sun-lounger. The situation was quite noisy at times due to over-flying aircraft and activity at the ferry terminal.
The apartment's best features are the terrace and it's location, as it is near the centre whilst overlooking the harbour. The apartment itself was immaculately clean and well presented with a fridge, air con, kettle, cooker, shower and settee. The apartment also has wifi but no TV (which I liked). We were met by Defkalion, the owners friend who made us very welcome and provided a local map with attractions and places of interest. Defkalion also gave us a phone number to contact him if there were any problems which was reassuring and provided a personal touch. I would gladly recommend this apartment for a city break (not a beach break) the only downside being a little noise from planes landing at the airport about 5 miles away.
Very happily recommend this. Perfectly nice little apartment - not grand luxe but everything works fine. And a great terrace, with views out over the harbour and full sun ALL day. it's also I think a great location, quite a quiet little street but literally minutes from everywhere you'd want to go (including some hugely enjoyable restaurants). They are very welcoming too, and have some top tips. I'd stay there again any time.
ps The airport IS close to town
