“our chania stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We stayed in Avra City Hotel on July 5th and was very happy with the accommodations. It is a lovely hotel, all newly renovated with marble, wood floors. Breakfast was good with many choices, a good start for the day. near the center of town and close to the water where all the restaurants are. I would definitely stay here again.

looked like a brand new hotel, hard to believe they have been around 20 yrs. the rooms apparently were renovated a year back but looked as if done up just yesterday. cleanliness is to be seen to be believed.
good location, could see deers from our room. Quiet inspite of being centrally located.
good breakfast with the added option to squeeze fresh juices yourselves.
Katerina the assistant manager was very responsive on mail and arranged taxi pickup and also gave us pointers on where to eat like the locals do etc.

I really liked this hotel, from the spacious cool lobby via the helpful and friendly staff to the nice room with some interesting art and a balcony over looking the park. Breakfast was a good buffet selection. Location was great, close to the market and the old town, but not "in the thick of it". It was nice to get out of the heat an buzz of the city and recharge before heading back out again. Decor is modern and stylish with a definite nod to antiquity. Really nice place.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the park

Words will not suffice to express our satisfaction with this hotel. Artfully renovated, beautifully appointed, and very well situated. Charming little place with immaculate service (thank you Dimitra!), bountiful breakfast, comfy rooms all with a view, and ship-shape management (thank you Katarina and we will keep in touch!). We will definitely stay at Avra again.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and all people from Chania so they new the best places to go. Just a few minutes walk to the centre
The hotel has just been refurbished and looks wonderful full of nice art. The wifi worked well and the beds very comfortable. Breakfast was good a real treat to stay.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit a beautiful quite hotel within 5 mins walk from a bustling exciting city
Well done

Room Tip: The two ladies on reception were outstanding
