We stayed at the Amphora Hotel near the Venetian Harbor for two nights. It's a lovely little hotel, perfect location and the view was spectacular! We arrived at night and the owner waited for us on the street so we didn't get lost in the narrow busy streets. We found that very thoughtful. Hotel room was very clean, they had... More

We stayed at the Amphora Hotel which is located in the Venetian Harbor in Chania, Crete. The location of the hotel was incredible. We were right in the Venetian Harbor overlooking the sea. We were in walking distance of shops, restaurants and bars. The hotel was great as well. We had a large room on the top floor (Room #19).... More

Hotel Amphora was lovely, but I wish I would have known that there is a club beneath the hotel that blares music all night. We woke up at 6 AM one morning to hike the Samaria Gorge and you could still hear the bass knocking below us. I think that part of the problem was how old the building is... More

Amphora Hotel is a charming hotel that overlooks the Venetian port at Chania. The location and staff are wonderful. I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to my friends and family. I must say that my initial thought when I entered the hotel was 'this place is a little too rustic for me'. However, it quickly grew on... More

Very comfortable room in a great hotel, right in the old harbor, very close to the most important sites in Chania. The staff are lovely, the breakfast was homely and great, and the roof garden was spectacular overlooking the harbor. You have the option to eat your breakfast either in a designated area on the ground floor, or the staff... More

When you arrive in Old Town - Chania - you immediately feel relaxed. We were shown up a million stairs, with an entrance in a back alley. Then we arrived at our room. The whole hotel is decorated in Grecian blue. You open the shutters - we were in room 20 - and from the balcony, the whole of Old... More

First off my wife and I stayed in room #19 and friends stayed in #14. #19 is larger and costs around 20 euros more per day. Both rooms have excellent views of the water while 19 has a nice balcony so more apt for a romantic setting (although the hotel has numerous rooftop settings for beautiful views of the water)...

Amphora hotel is not only in the beautiful old part of Chania, in a lovely building but it's also a harbour side hotel with the best views. I stayed in their triple bed room with a balcony from where I could enjoy the hustle and bustle of life around the harbour, views across to the mosque on the opposite side... More

Location. Location. Location. Amphora is perfectly located on the old harbourfront. Its an old building, refurbished but not your 5 star luxe abode. Rather, its rustic & has a home style feel. Their prices are on the higher end & worth it only if you have harbour views. We had the best room in the house with a long balcony... More

Best location in town, friendly staff. Quite a few stairs and no lift, but this was not really an issue for us, and my mother is 86! Our room had a wonderful view of the harbour, and the rooms were really well kept and clean. If you catch a taxi, be aware that the hotel is a 200m walk, but... More
