We stayed there for a week and we found this hotel immaculate in every respect AND the friendly staff were exceptional. Sure, it's not beach side or even in the unique Old Town but it's proximity to all the main sights was very convenient. The bonus for us with our young child was the City Park immediately adjacent to the... More

I spent almost a week there with my mum and it was really great. The location is perfect if you want to visit La Chania (you can do everything by walk) and if you want to visit other cities and villages, the hotel is like 15 min drive away from the national road, which is really useful. Then the hotel... More

We found the location great, not wanting to be based in the old part of town but close enough to walk, Lovely hotel, clean rooms, pleasant professional staff, varied breakfast. Free underground parking adds a plus point.

Great intimate hotel. Only 5 min pleasant walk to the Old Town with parking underground. Nice friendly staff with the best customer service we have encountered in a long time. Spacious clean rooms and nice artwork. Pleasant dining area for great buffet breakfast. Wi-Fi works well in all areas. Calming quiet hotel, cannot recommend highly enough.

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... More

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.
