I can't recommend a specific hotel, having never stayed in Heraklion city centre or near the airport but isn't what you are asking for impossible? The bus station, for buses to Chania, is not that close to the airport so I am not sure how you can have a hotel that is convenient for both? If I was deciding I would get a taxi into the centre from the airport for €20 and stay in a hotel near the bus station.
Hotel Megaron is the closest right opposite the bus station but it is a big 5 star hotel so it might be expensive. Hotel Chris and Lato Boutique Hotel are the next closest I think at about 300 m and they look like they would be cheaper than Megaron. Lato looks very nice in their advertising but Chris looks like it would be cheaper. Irini Hotel is about 400 m away. Pasiphae Hotel, as recommended by Saddler is a little further away at 1.5 km but looks as though it might be cheaper than any of the others. Personally I wouldn't want to drag luggage 1.5 km but I probably would have done when I was younger. Perhaps worth getting prices from all of them and trying to do a compromise between price, niceness and convenience?
