Lefka Apartments
Ranked #20 of 111 Hotels in Chania Town
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 July 2012

The owners and staff of the Lefka Apartments are especially welcoming and helpful. When we couldn't find the hotel, the owner drove out to lead us there. The restaurant staff makes you feel like you're a favorite guest. Rooms are simple but comfortable and include a basic kitchen. Maps and other information are provided. Food in the garden restaurant is excellent. The only drawback is some noise from the busy road fronting the hotel. We had a room near the back, away from the pool, which was quieter. It's easy to drive into Chania, and a supermarket is just across the street.

I found Lefka by chance on Google and booked it after seeing all the great reviews on Tripadvisor. My self and my wife and 13 year old daughter went to stay there for a weekat beginning of July 2012. Everything about the apartments was brilliant, the standard of the accommodation, the daily cleaning, the pool, the food in the evenings. Most of all the welcome we received from Anna, Andreas and Evita (and Lily) was fantastic. They are really interested in their guests and they are great company to talk to and provide really good advice on where to go and what to see etc. Down a small road opposite the apartments, about ten minutes walk, there are two beaches - one of them is all set up with a lifeguard and sunbeds for hire etc; the other isnt. The swimming down there is great and we went there most days as well as to the pool in Lefka which is also great. We loved chatting to Anna and Andreas and Evita also. The taxi ride to old Chania harbour is consistently €6. Before we went Evita put us in touch with a local car hire company who met us at the airport and handed over the car - much better than having to join lengthy queues at one of the desks. We would recommend Lefka to anyone who wants a really relaxing break in a great vantage point for Chania town and also for exploring the western end of Creta. Lefka also has WIFI so you can lock the iphone or ipad onto that if that is your thing!. We had dinner at Lefka three times in the week and Andreas' (and the others!!) cooking was terrific. We just couldn't fault the place. Go there and you'll see!!

Room Tip: There are one bedroom apartments and studios. We had a one bed on the pool side directly across from...

Lefka apartments represent a nice place to stay with your family. Apartments are basic, but comfortable. The real fun for children is a swimming pool around. The owner is very wellcoming. The appartments are not situated in the center of the town, so you will need to take a public transport to get there. Near around there is a small beach, comfortable but not the best one. Overall it was a nice place.

Room Tip: Take a room with balcony.

Our stay at Lefka made the end of every day seem like we were coming home for dinner. Andreas, Evita and Anna are incredible. Very helpful in giving advice and making you feel welcome. Upon arrival at Lefka, it was right away clear that this is was not a bureaucratic establishment. Anna checked us in without even checking our reservation. She gave us kisses, grabbed the key and took us straight to our room.

We had everyday planned out to a T and when we had questions of where to go and what to see, we would get our answers from the local Lefka Google. The food at Lefka, prepared by Andreas is amazing. (TRY THE SWORDFISH). In Chania we had encountered that in a lot of places the food was a bit salty, so we spoke to Andreas about it. That next night when we ordered dinner, Andreas was kind enough to remember our concern and he made sure that the dinner that night was perfect.

My favorite part: Andreas's bartending skills. Not only does he have fresh herbs growing right outside of the bar, but his mixology skills and precision are above and beyond those of any bartender I have encountered in an swanky NYC bar. Ask him for a shot of something interesting... I dare you :)

Overall.. this place is the full package, if you are looking for an extremely friendly and cozy place to stay. Incredibly neat, incredibly warm, incredibly Crete!

We had a totally brilliant time in Lefka Apartments last year - so much so, that although I never normally return to the same place - my parents and daughter both insisted we book again for this summer.

The hotel is spotless; convenient, the rooms are spacious and food is good - all things that make your holiday enjoyable - but what makes this place 'extra' special is the lovely owners; their children and their delightful staff.

Nothing is too much trouble - we had such a relaxing time. Chania is a lovely city - and we are really excited about our return trip.

We stayed at Lefka for several days in late September. It was the highlight of our trip! Chania was beautiful, peaceful (compared to Santorini...geez) and the people at Lefka were like family. It really sucked to leave. if you stay, ask Andreas to make goat for dinner.. The best goat I've ever had!
