Whatever you do, don't take a room view on the sea view. You will never be able to sleep, night clubs, bars, people shouting, plus ultra thin walls for other guests. Payed for three nights but left just after two sleepless nights. Worst experience ever along with an inexistant staff... Trust me - Don't go there!!!

My friend and I stayed in Hotel Amphora from July 7/30/16 to 7/31/16 (2 nights) although we were booked for 4 nights. This is fairly a small hotel. The hotel is located right on the harbor which was an ideal location for us. The hotel including our room was nicely decorated and clean. The only problem this hotel had and... More

This is a great hotel and a great location in the Venetian Harbour or Old Port.Right in the centre of the old port so within walking distance to bars, restaurants, shopping (quite good) and a city beach. They gave some great tips on where to go for food, shops and beaches. Organised a car for us to rent and the... More

This was an amazing hotel. It kills me to write this review because I want to be greedy and keep it a secret as it was THAT lovely! Our view from the room was exquisite!!!!!! We could not believe how beautiful it was! The room was very comfortable as well. We had the most amazing time here. The breakfast is... More

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
