We really enjoyed our stay here when we visited crete. We had been to a few places but none were as comfortable and relaxing in the midday heat as room 20 at The Amphora. Situated on the harbour front, I was worried that it would be noisy but the bustle was comfortable and calming. The hotel is stunning and just... More

We knew this hotel was going to be a special place to spend Christmas 2013 and so booked 3 days to celebrate. We didn't plan for it to be so good that we would spend all 9 days of our holiday here! Leaving the rain-blasted shores of the UK, we arrived in bright sunshine and were welcomed by the outstanding... More

Lovely room right on the harbor, outside the room was a large terrace where you could sit for hours and feel like you are in heaven with the blue of the sea and sky. The lighthouse and the harbor also make for nice people watching. The hotel is a restored Venetian/ Ottoman era house, place had loads of charm, original... More

What a treat! This hotel was certainly one of the best that I have ever stayed in on my extensive global travels. From the very first "Kalimera" this place was enchanting. The staff were superb, rooms, location and views superb. What else can I add?....Superb!

Everything was great about this hotel. The staff, the views from the room and roof terrace, the breakfast, the harbour front restaurant below, the room we had (it was massive, great price/quality, was like living in a castle), name it. We loved it and regretted to have booked only 3 nights here. Chania is a fantastic place and the most... More

I stayed i Amphora for a week with a couple of friends. Location is superb, in an old, well maintained building facing the old harbor. The rooms are lovely, and there are a couple of roof top terraces good for relaxation as well. The staff is very friendly, and there is a relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast is superb, everything fresh and... More

Situated in the heart of the harbour area the views are brilliant. For those looking for a little old world charm this place is just ideal. We booked for five nights and stayed for eleven moving through a number of rooms each with individual character and charm. The staff were brilliant and everything was spotless.

This hotel is nicely located to enjoy the view of the harbour and was the reason for a return stay. The rooms are all spacious and this time we had a room located at the top of the building with a small private balcony and enjoyed siting out in the morning and the evenings. The hotel has lots of character... More

perfect view over the old harbour, individual rooms, very charming, best breakfast and homemade pieces from cake to fruits, very charming people at reception, at cleaning, and Augustin, who is allways available and brings breakfast in the morning as well as red wine in the evening to the roof terrace. Perfect and 100% to recommend!
