We stayed here for 4 nights in early September & would highly recommend it to others. It is in the perfect location for exploring Old town Chania. We had an economy room with a view of the harbor for 3 of the nights & upgraded 1 night to the next floor/level up (forget the name). We actually preferred the economy... More

An excellent 14th century Venetian hotel, opposite the old harbour. We loved it here so much that we extended our stay. Our room had a lovely seaside view and was wrapped around with flower filled terraces. The breakfast is fantastic, orange flavoured cake, rice pudding , cheese, ham breads, fruit and more. Another place that we hope to return to... More

We stayed in a delightful room with view over the harbour. Although this meant some noise at night, the benefits far out-weighed the noise. Our arrival coincided, unfortunately, with a staff shortage, so we had a challenge getting our cases up to our room - but the reward was a great view, and an apologetic manager with a bottle of...

Sad to say we are leaving Hotel Amphoria tomorrow after a 6 nights stay. Our thanks to Anita on reception who was so helpful suggesting restaurants and places to see & Agustin who takes care of guests every need. We have always booked rooms facing the harbour which have been large and well decorated as we enjoy the changing harbour... More

The staff is only available from 7am to 10pm. The hotel offers breakfast for 10 Euros, but I would walk around to have a cheaper meal since it does not offer a specific value. Try Strata restaurant. If you are flying from Athens it is just about 2.5 hour flight to Herkalion and I would recommend renting a car (about... More

This is not a place you visit once. Crete, and particularly Chania, for all it's rich history and beauty, is a place which is comfortable and welcoming. And at the Hotel Amphora this is abundantly clear. It's location on the harbor, it's genuinely friendly staff and it's clean and comfortable accommodations make this small hotel a place to which I...

We had a lovely 2 night stay at the charming Amphora hotel. The location is perfect and offers amazing views of the harbor. Special thanks to Anita at reception for being so kind and helpful, and to Augustine for the breakfast conversation. We would love to back for a longer stay!

Had a wonderful stay at the Amphora Hotel. The staff couldn't do enough for us, very friendly & polite. We had a 3rd floor room overlooking the harbor, which was beautiful. It doesn't have an elevator, so you might want a room on another floor. It has a nice little breakfast buffet every morning, and the Amphora restaurant had great... More

This hotel has the most enviable position. There is so much to do in Crete, however one thing is an absolute must is visit Old Town, Chania. When staying at Amphora hotel, you are literally in Old Town. The cobblestone laneways, with little boutique shops are just outside your door. We remember on a number of occasions debating whether to... More
