Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent four weeks at Friday apartments and what a great choice! At the end of a quiet cul de sac, it's within 10 minutes' easy walk of Nea Chora beach with bars, tavernas and mini-supermarkets, 35 minutes' walk east to Chania's old port, and within half an hour's walk west to several sandy beaches and good eateries. Arriving late (11pm), Roula had waited to greet us and take us to apartment 25. The following morning we asked to be moved, as there was a leak in the shower room and a puddle on the floor in front of the sink. No problem! We were immediately taken to apartment 28, in a quiet corner with a large, paved 'garden' in front of it. There was a leak in that shower room too but, as it seemed to be oozing at floor level from the wall behind the toilet, we imagine the plumbing is probably suspect in all the apartments. Unfortunately, the wall in the bedroom is mouldy and crumbling as a result. We were also a bit disappointed by the very limited cooking provision, which consisted of a two-ring hob that blew the fuses one evening when we tried to use the larger ring. We had chosen the self-catering option rather than B&B so it meant we had light breakfasts and didn’t actually bother cooking in the evenings. Roula was a star throughout, with lots of local knowledge, particularly about food, and recommended some fantastic tavernas. We ate out a lot, but also had substantial meals in Frida’s café. Chef Nikos is very good, and certainly likes to feed people. We can’t praise the staff enough: Gabriela serving at lunchtimes and Anna in the evenings. Anna shook a mean cocktail, whipped up a lovely chocolate mousse with sprinkles, and kept us entertained with her cheeky chat and dry sense of humour. Our total admiration, however, went to Efi and Roula #2, the always-smiling cleaners who came in every day and kept the whole place spotless. Thanks to everyone. Our main gripes were the sometimes selfish, messy, littering, drunken, noisy neighbours (including Finnish, Irish and British) and the fact that we were both bitten to death by mozzies/midges.

Just back from 10 days at Frida Apartments in Chania Crete. First of all thank you to Frida and her wonderful staff for making our stay so enjoyable. We had breakfast in the on-site restaurant every morning with views of the sea. Fresh fruit and a selection of cheese,meat, cereal and Cretan food was available every morning. There are two swimming pools one just below the dining area and the other further down some steps. The rooms were cleaned to a high standard every day by the very friendly staff who were always in great form. The fabulous beach is about a 10 minute walk and Chania is about a 20 minute walk or a €7 taxi. We ate at the on-site restaurant on a couples of evenings sipping cocktails in the happy hour before dinner. Again thanks to all at Frida for looking after us so well. We will return.

Where to start with this perfect hotel. The staff are absolutely amazing! From Anna with her delicious cocktails, to Frida and her amazing recommendations. Nothing was to much to ask. We had the most amazing time from their fabulous pool to their delicious food at breakfast and lunch/ dinner. The pool was always quiet enough which was exactly what we wanted! Our room was perfect, great size with aircon, wifi and even Netflix to sign into! Everyone made us feel right at home. They are nice and close to the beach and about a 35 min walk to the old harbour. We opted for taxis each night which were only €8 and reception always had them ordered straight away for us. Everything was perfect and we would highly recommend this hotel to any couple who would like a quiet oasis away from the crowds at the harbour so you can have the best of both worlds! Deffinately a secret gem that we hope to return to. Thank you to all the staff for creating such a beautiful holiday for us xx

Hotel is very clean and nice rooms. Kitchen was little small but that can vary from room to room. Excellent bathroom and nice balcony. Service was really good and pool areas excellent. It’s like it’s own isolated small cute village. One thing is why I won’t come back, they have Gold fish in very dirty pool outside. Kids tease them, it’s really animal cruelty so I hope they will get ride of the fish. We also did not see anyone feeding them. I hope hotel makes good choice and let them run free or put them in a sleep.

We have been waiting for the opportunity to travel to Chania and return to Frida our favorite place to stay. The family gave us a warm welcome back and checked us in to our regular rooms. Enjoyed a glass of vine in the bar before dinner. The breakfast was served a la carte due to preventive infection control. It worked very well, and we had freshly made from the kitchen a tasty omelet and bacon and eggs. The yoghurt with mother Maria's fantastic homemade orange marmelade was even better than I could remember. We were sunbathing by the pool and had a good lunch brake with delicious souvlaki and beef burger with greek salad and tzatsiki. Very relaxing stay with Frida and the family and their very accommodating team members. We really appreciated the marmelade gift to bring back home. Thank you all, we will return.

Frida Apartments is such a fantastic place to stay. Our room was comfortable, spacious, and had everything we needed. Both swimming pools are wonderful, great sizes and always clean. The bar is brilliant, the restaurant is absolutely great with delicious food, and the location is very handy for Chania (just an €8 taxi ride to the centre) and a nice local beach. The staff are absolutely wonderful, and cannot do enough to help, super friendly and lovely. We will definitely be back, this really was the perfect place to stay :) Iza, Martyn and Izzy x

Frida Apartments was an excellent location for our holiday in Crete Island. Great accommodation services, the apartments are clean and very practical. We really enjoyed great sea views and sunrises from Frida Apartments, the 2 pools area is very nice. We also loved that is not a crowded place specially now during pandemic period. Breakfast and dinners are very tasty, we have enjoyed delicious Cretan meals. An important thing no know is that food is not served in a buffet style so you don’t many choices. The staff is helpful and friendly, definitely a great plus from a client’s perspective. Staff from the reception, also Gabi and Crisy are doing everything to please every client. The location is great, close to Chania center. If you rent a car or use the public transport you can visit amazing places in Crete. For beach we recommend Agia Marina beach which is at 15 minutes distance by car/bus. We were very happy to choose Frida Apartments! Regards to all Frida’s staff!

What lovely apartments with gorgeous views and amazing staff! The staff were very friendly and helpful, they couldn’t do enough for us: booking excursions and taxis if need be and ensuring we got the best out of our stay. We booked onto a Balos beach boat trip through them and used the taxi service several times as it is a bit of a walk to some places. We enjoyed our stay here as a family as we wanted a quiet, peaceful stay in Greece. It was tucked away up a hill about a 25 minute walk to the pretty Chania Harbour and Old Town and most nearby beaches and restaurants. The apartments were very clean and the two which we stayed in were modern and had a small ‘lounge’ area with a futon sofa, cupboard, mini fridge etc and also a nice bathroom and bedroom. Open plan apart from the bathroom but private enough as the room we stayed in wasn’t next to the pool. The rooms had a kitchenette and TV which was handy in the evening whilst getting ready. The rooms also had a safety deposit box. There are 2 pools which were both fair sized and clean, overlooking the hills and in the distance you could see the sea. Felt really tranquil. Plenty of sun beds to choose from around the pools so I don’t think you’d be stuck for somewhere to sun bathe. The food was lovely, they offer an all you can eat breakfast (which was continental) at a cheap rate offering a nice range of fresh local fruit, toast, cereals and juices etc. For lunch they have a light daytime menu with salads and paninis etc. In the evening they have a Greek BBQ night once a week which involves Greek themed food and some entertainment, but for other nights have a great selection of Greek cuisine with a selection of local fish and meats. Good selection of drinks both soft drink and alcoholic and had a happy hour every day which was good. Overall we loved this stay and would recommend if you’re looking for a quiet, tranquil stay. Very clean and pleasant. The only negative we could say (which is not the apartments fault) is the location. Though it is within walking distance to beaches, restaurants etc. Frida Apartments are slightly isolated with it being tucked away so if you are looking for a lively, busy place to stay in the heart of Chania Old Town, this may not be the one for you. (Please note, we stayed in June 2019 but we have only just had chance to review now)

We start at Frida hotel for two weeks at the beginning of September and absolutely loved it. The whole complex is very clean very well looked after and the staff are amazing. The terrace bar overlooks the top Pool and you can see the ocean as well. They serve beautiful cocktails ( try the mai tai it will blow your socks off) and their Cesar salad is to die for. Can wait to go back.
