The place is good, heritage, great view of the old harbour and a good balcony. We stayed in the room with the balcony, it was on the higher floor so not much noise from the restaurant below and also from the street. Should stay if you want an old place done up well.

Friends of mine own this hotel in Chania. It is wonderfully located in the heart of old Chania. Room we reserved was large enough for our family of 6! It was the family room, so inquire about it if you have a large family like us. We had rented a small van type vehicle and explored the Crete using Chania...

It was a very nice room with a beautiful view of the harbour. Very friendly atmosphere and beautiful terraces. Unfortunetly breakfast is not included in the (expensive) price. It's 10 Euros and except of the coffee and the orange juice It was not delicious.

We stayed here for a week the first week of September 2016 and loved it. We had a superior sea view room ( well worth the extra for the stunning view) and enjoyed everything about the hotel. The room was lovely, the staff were very friendly, helpful in every respect and couldn't do enough for us. Particular mention must be...

The Amphora is very visible on the harbour side, but its entrance is quite hidden -you can either walk along the harbour westwards to the Maritime Museum, turn left up a paved slope, turning left at the lane marked "Antoni Gampa" and walk along to what looks like a dead-end, but at the end there is a lane off to...

5 friends booked two rooms - both rooms were amazing - floors beautiful wood furniture so lovely - three bed had a mezzanine level - 2nd had gorgeous 4 poster bed - would be so romantic for a couple. Staff were very friendly and efficient - very happy with our treat for one night in amazing Chania Harbour.

We spent a night there with my husband in the end of August during a short pass by Chania town. Even though the edifice is quite old, the rooms are very tidy and clean. The concierge was very kind and the service very good! Above all though, what takes your breathe away is the great terrace on the top that...
