Lato Boutique Hotel, was one of the first boutique city hotel in Heraklion Town, bringing high style to Crete.
Comfort, service and a perfect central location from which to sample Heraklion's variety of museums, restaurants, cafes, shops and nightlife.
Lato is fully refurbished during 2012-2013, and has been operating for 35 years, and responds to the expectations of its guests and completely fulfils their needs.
Lato Boutique Hotel is a complex with two neighboring buildings on Epimenidou Street. Besides sophisticated rooms and suites, the main building houses all the common areas, the reception, the lobby, three restaurants, a bar, multifunctional halls, and a small wellness centre. The annex building is situated right across the street. Both buildings are functionally united, and were fully refurbished at the beginning of 2013.
Just aside from the boisterous bustle but so close to museums, restaurants, shops and cafes; 5 minutes walk or taxi ride from the arrival point at the port from Athens and Santorini - the same convenience for departures and a ten minute taxi ride from Heraklion airport.
There are impressive dark wood trimmings, unique-to-each-room decor, designer light fittings, swish coverings, solidly fine furniture and quality atmosphere. Rooms have views, many have great views across the marina part of the harbour to the Koules fortress and out to sea.
Rooms are smart, special-feeling and have the neat luxury touches of a tasteful city base. Excellent mattresses contribute to peaceful and restful sleep. Suites are a treat in store. There are balconies, some with terraces and even glass-covered conservatory areas.
The hotel will also act as a living, ever-changing art gallery - rooms and general areas will display new works by artists from all over Greece and from Crete.
A steam room, giant Jacuzzi whirlpool, small workout room and panoramic view roof terrace with fresh sea-food delicacies, local meat dishes, fresh vegetables as well as home-made ice-cream, desserts of unique flavours, fragrant coffee, refreshing cocktails and wines on the roof's well known Herb's Garden restaurant.
Satellite TV, real local direct internet connection in every room (easily connect with your laptop), air conditioning, telephones with message system - are some of the equipment and tech features.
The open plan bar, lobby and lounge is decorated in contemporary and tasteful stone, leather and marble.
There is a restaurant spanning the breakfast to dinner appetite, with Cretan specialties and an extensive menu. And in the winter a boutique, gourmet restaurant with impressive decor "Brilliant".
Professionally run with charming and helpful service. The perfect hideaway in Heraklion.
