“A great experience in this hotel”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Our stay at this beautiful hotel started off with a very friendly welcome by the hotel manager. We had a late arrival, and she took the liberty to already make us a reservation in the lovely hotel-restaurant on the rooftop. It had a great view and delicious food! Especially after our long trip, this was a very thoughtful thing to do. The room was beautiful, and had a charming view overlooking the harbour. Every day the room was cleaned, exceeding our expectations. Our stay was including breakfast and that was also really perfect: Lato serves a wide range of breakfast, both Greek and Continental style. The hotel is really well located in the middle of the city centre, which makes it able to see a lot of Heraklion. The staff was extremely friendly and had some great advice on where to spend our days. They recommended local beaches and things to do, very nice! Overall, a really great experience in this beautiful, lovely and charming boutique hotel. Thank you so much!

Great location. Everything looks and feels brand new and very nicely decorated.
the room was very comfortable and so was the bed.
Breakfast was very good, and the stuff was friendly and very helpful.
This will most certainly be my choice next time I am in Heraklion.

My wife and I stayed at the Lato Hotel in early June for four days - this was our second stay at the hotel. Once we arrived they offered us an upgraded room in their new annex which overlooked the Venetian Harbor. Since our room was not quite ready, they offered us complementary fruit drinks in their roof-top restaurant. The room was very large, well-appointed with modern decor. The free Wi-Fi worked well. The room was very quiet and very clean. They serve one of the best and most varied breakfasts that we ever had in Greece. But what made our stay exceptional was THE STAFF who were always there to help, with the luggage and with great advice for restaurants, sightseeing and taxi’s. An example of the extraordinary service: When our plans were to leave for the airport very early in the morning the reception staff gave us a second wake-up call to make sure we were up! They also offered a specially prepared very early breakfast. We highly recommend the Lato Hotel and would love to return.

We strongly recommend. Very well located, great breakfast, helpful staff, good accommodations. If we go back to Crete, we'll stay there again! Very close to the harbour and main bus stop. Close to the main museums and restaurants. You can walk easily to almost everywhere.

Great location at the center of Heraklion. All interesting city sites within walking distance. The friendliest staff you can expect. The breakfast buffet is good and abundant. Is there anything better you wish to have in Heraklion?

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the sea

Fantastic, huge, beautiful room, lots of storage space, including fridge, safe, nice toiletries, bathrobes, slippers, free wifi, etc. Bath was a bit high to climb into and at 5ft 6inchs I'm not that short! We also had two balconies to enjoy sun all day and great view of the harbour. Friendly, helpful staff (we got a free late checkout, early breakfast when we had an early trip out, help with cabs and with our hire car), excellent location and we enjoyed the free raki and snacks on the first night. Good breakfast, loved the freshly squeezed, plentiful orange juice and all the local delicacies, including Cretan tea. However, our room was under the restaurant and it was the early morning cleaning with chairs/tables being dragged across the floor and other bangs and crashes that was one noise source (not a problem in the evening as dining didn't seem to go on late; not much noise from people). Non-stop noise came from the busy road, which was some way away so the fabric of the building and double glazing must be very poor. On top of that, it is right under the flight path! If noise doesn't bother you then stay, but if you need quiet to get some sleep and want some peace in which to enjoy the view, don't!

Room Tip: Noisy under the restaurant. City view may be quieter than harbour view but will never escape the pla...

Korinna_Alexandry, General Manager at Lato Boutique Hotel, responded to this review, 27 June 2014
Dear M W,
Thank you for choosing Lato Boutique Hotel for your accommodation while in Crete and for your great feedback concerning your room’s facilities and aesthetics, our property’s location, the quality of the services received, our personnel’s friendliness, as well as our renowned breakfast.
Your input is very valuable to us and contributes the most in our efforts for excellence. We do value every single remark and adjust by obtaining adequate measures. I am terribly sorry for the unfortunate incident of early morning noise from our restaurant’s set-up due to an early banquet requirement. We will make sure this will not happen again.
Concerning any external noise, the cause was probably a frame that had not been properly sealed, which should have been verified during our daily housekeeping procedure. Occasionally one may hear airplanes taking off from the city’s airport, as everywhere in downtown Heraklion, but the room acoustic isolation is very efficient.
Dear M W, we are grateful for your contribution and looking forward to serve you again anytime in the near future.
