Good position and not far from the sea (5 minutes by foot), very friendy, and good for relaxing.

The hotel with appartments is calm and is close to the town. It is a family running hotel and it is seen everywhere - nice, kind and clean. We got a nice appartment for 10 days with mountain view and from our balcony we can see also the sea and Chania harbor. Rooms are nice, very clan, not big but enogh for a couple (also possible for three) with a nice bathroom. The staff Giannis and Nikos are really very helpful and considered all our wishes . They recomended us nice trips by car to the west and south part of Creta – it is the best part of the island although we saw in several times the whole island. The position of this hotel is good location for exploring the west part of the island. The food in the hotel's restaurant was great and staff in restaurant is very kind. We would definitely come back to this hotel, it's really good value for money.

Room Tip: Our room is on the south side in first floor and it is calm and sunny.

From the airport pick-up to the advice on bus times back to the airport, the family team at Folia Apartments has it right. Stop looking for other hotels and just book at this place.

The best part about this place is the people who run it. Unbelievably friendly and helpful. Always around to answer questions and make suggestions. It is a family run business and it shows.

Spent three nights at Folia and it was fabulous. Located in Agia Marina about a five-minute walk to the nice beach and bus stop, and about two minutes to a good supermarket. Rooms are cozy with balconies, stovetop, A/C, and a fridge. Breakfast is basic, but good, and the pool is very nice. Did not eat other meals at the facility because we went out, but the customers looked satisfied.

From Agia Marina bus stop, you can go anywhere. Chania, the airport, or even as far as Kissamos Port if you're interested in a boat trip to Balos/Gramvousa (highly recommended).

This place is not on the actual beachfront, but it's close and in a quieter part of the neighborhood away from the noisy traffic.

Thank you for a great stay.

Room Tip: Many rooms have views of the sea from the balcony.

The moment we arrived we knew we'd made the right decision on our accommodation.

We parked our car in the covered car park at the top and headed down to reception where we were warmly welcomed by the brothers that run it.

Our room was a good size with a double bed which can be unusual in Greece. We had specially requested a room with a sunny balcony, which they remembered. The room was spotlessly clean and cleaned every day we were there. The fridge can be noisy at times, but either earplugs or retsina (or both) will do the trick on that score.

We hadn't planned on having breakfast there at all, but when we saw the breakfast on offer, we ended up having it there everyday. The simple choice was sufficient for us (breads, cakes, pies, eggs, meats, cheese, fruit, yoghurt and cereal, washed down with lashings of coffee) and set us up for the day.

The family who run it, and their friend who runs the bar, were kind enough to allow us to practice our Greek on them, and had some excellent local beer that would rival any hipster micro brewery in Camden.

Location wise it was sufficiently away from the main strip to feel out of town, but in reality the walk is a matter of minutes, as is the beach. Even though it was windy on the beach a couple of days, the hotel was set back enough that we were sheltered from the wind and could lounge by the lovely pool enjoying those Cretan rays.

All in all, if you want relaxing then you've got it here.

We recently spent 4 nights in this hotel and we really enjoyed the experience. The hotel was cozy and our room was very clean! We got fresh sheets and towels everyday.

Since there was a small kitchen, we could cook and enjoy our breakfast on the balcony. They also serve a breakfast next to the pool, but I recommend you prepare your own with local fruits and vegetables.

There was also hot water at anytime (sounds normal, but we stayed in another place where water was sun-heated, so no hot shower possible in early morning...).

the hotel offers pick-up from the airport. But I definitely recommend you to rent a car if like us, you like to experience the island.

And last but not least, I've visited 30+ countries and definitely received the best hospitality in Crete island (included this hotel).

I definitely recommend this apart-hotel if you're looking for a nice and quite place to stay.

Room Tip: ask for a balcony with sea view (no extra, better view, quieter)!

I have stayed at Folia Apartment three times. it is a great place to stay. It is walkwise from the beaches, markets, stores, restaurants, clubs, bars, etc. It is awesome because its close to everything but also in a very peaceful area. The rooms are very clean, the breakfast is great, and the staff is very kind and helpful. You wont be left dissapointed.

A great place to stay - clean apartment and friendly staff. Area was quiet but amazingly only a five minute walk from an amazing beach and lots of restaurants to choose from nearby. If you need supplies there are local supermarkets again five minutes away although they vary in price so check but you will quickly see where to shop. The area offers a great place to stay and only a short bus journey from chania - we wanted a relaxing break with a pool and a fab beach, cheeky cocktail and good food. Folia was a great place to stay for all this and at a great price - book you won't be disappointed
