Incredible experience staying in this hotel last summer. For the price we paid we didn't have high expectations, however the sublime service of the friendly and GENUINELY caring staff made this stay a memorable one. The hotel is situated on a steep hill with ocean and mountain views. The immediate area is quite residential and not exactly luxury but this... More

We stayed at Folia last year. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. We had a balcony with wonderful sea views. The family/owners were very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. We ate there a few times in the evening and the food was very good. The beach was about 5 mins walk away with a good choice of restaurants... More

The rooms were fairly basic, but very clean and excellent value. The hotel is situated about a five minute walk up a fairly steep hill, the walk didn't bother us and we found it preferable to being closer to the busy main road. The elevated location also offers lovely sea views if you choose a room with a sea view.... More

Found Folia based on review on TA. Having stayed a week a bit outside the main Chania area, we were looking forward to a broader choice of restaurants and touring a bit during our second week. The hotel is average on most aspects. The breakfast is OK and the food varies around what you'd expect. Maybe a bit too expensive... More

Everything about this place shows signs of being a well run and cared for establishment. Its not just clean but tidy and well maintained too. The pool and restaurant area looks good and the furniture was good quality. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable with an authentic Greek feel. The only downside is that the rooms are advertised... More

We stayed for 2 weeks end of Sep/beginning of Oct and booked directly. We found the apartment to be lovely and clean and spacious enough for two people. We had a great view over the sea. We didn't use the aircon, however when it was very hot at the beginning of our stay we opened the balcony doors and side... More

Our 2nd visit to the Hotel, it was as good as our first visit. Gainnis, Nikos and their family were excellent hosts. Food was excellent, apartment fantastic. We celebrated our Silver Wedding on our visit to the hotel, they set out a beautiful table for us to enjoy our meal with our family, a lovely night for us to remember.
