Stayed for one night at this reasonably priced hotel very close to the port in Heraklion. The Life Hotel is also about a 15 minute walk from the cultural centre of the city and a major road runs past it's front doors, affording easy access by bus to the airport.
The single room I rented for one night was en suite and cleanly furnished, as was the rest of the hotel. However I had no view out of the window (except of walls and other windows) and felt the room was a bit dark and depressing - would not really have wanted to stay for longer than one night. I paid an extra €5 in the morning for breakfast and, whilst there may have been some misunderstanding on my part, I was informed that the cooked breakfast would be about 5 minutes. So I had a bowl of cornflakes and some fruit juice whilst waiting, but the cooked breakfast never materialised and I could see that there was no one working in the kitchen and all the lights in there were off, so in my opinion I don't really think the €5 for breakfast was worth it.
Wi-fi is available in all rooms as well as a fridge, small safe, air conditioning and a TV. The place markets itself as a "boutique" hotel but I don't really think it qualifies to be honest. Decent enough place overall but I would try to find somewhere else in Heraklion, in future, especially if I were staying for longer than a night.
