Stayed in a second floor room adjacent to an amazing terrace which overlooked the harbour. Lovely staff...a great first night stopover in Chania...buffet style breakfast that you could eat outside on the pavement or as we did, on the terrace...

The Amphora is very visible on the harbour side, but its entrance is quite hidden -you can either walk along the harbour westwards to the Maritime Museum, turn left up a paved slope, turning left at the lane marked "Antoni Gampa" and walk along to what looks like a dead-end, but at the end there is a lane off to...

We spent a night there with my husband in the end of August during a short pass by Chania town. Even though the edifice is quite old, the rooms are very tidy and clean. The concierge was very kind and the service very good! Above all though, what takes your breathe away is the great terrace on the top that... More

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

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
