“An excellent place to stay”
Reviewed November 6, 2010

We spent the last week of the season at Niriis and got excellent value for the money dispite some very mixed weather. Very friendly family that run the hotel, and George had all relevant information about what to do and how to get around.
One detail on the negative side however: We made our own breakfast and therefore used the kitchen part of the room every morning. The kitchen utensils were not of first class. No frying pan, the kettle had a semiround bottom (took a long time to heat water), one of two knives was half-broken, etc.
If we return to the Chania-district, we hope for vacancy at Niriis!

George was very friendly. He also gave us a wealth of tips on Chania and Crete. This was by far the most helpful tips we have received on travels throughout the world. George told us about a dance school's performance, with local dances from throughout Crete, which we saw in Chania. The hotel is a family affair, with two brothers, dad and mom all working together. George is one of the brothers.

The room included a fridge, stove, and kitchen sink. There was a desk with ethernet cable for internet, which worked great. A safe was provided for no additional charge.

The location was nice, a short walk to the beach, and to the bus stop for Chania. The bus (July 2010) ran till almost midnight; it cost 90 cents per person per trip. We paid cash, as requested, for the rooms; the price was very reasonable.

Internet was via a LAN cable that we plugged into our netbook laptop computer. Pool is by arrangement with local hotels. They are free and the idea is that you buy a couple of drinks. We didn't use a pool.

In Chania, make sure to eat at the Portes restaurant. Wonderful food-- I had a different local vegetarian specialty each of 3 nights-- and my wife had yummy things with meat or seafood.

Feeding the fish small bits of bread in the old port at Chania is a lot of fun.

Minor downsides: The bathroom had no window and no fan. It appeared to not have been cleaned since the previous guests (the toilet smelled). Air conditioning is an extra charge of 1 euro per kilowatt-hour. We didn't really air conditioning, but it was frustrating because with the doors and windows open (for fresh or cool air), some mosquitos came in. I had to negotiate to get one of two towels replaced, after a 3-day stay.

We spent a brilliant week with friends at Niriis hotel. It was a really good deal. The location of the hotel is very close to the beach, 5min walking. The rooms very clean and roomy, comfy beds. Geogre(the receptionist) was really friendly and gave us all the support we asked for and even more, good travel tips, places to go, rent a car advise and etc.

Stayed at Hotel Niriis with my wife and 4month old baby for one week in August 2009. George and his parents who run the hotel were fantastic and made us feel very welcome. George was very helpful and told us many interesting places we could visit, including a wonderful taverna up in the mountains.
The hotel is 1 minute walk from two beautiful beaches which are very family friendly. Lots of cold beer available on the beach and very cheap. The hotel is only a very short bus ride into Chania, which is a charming old port town with many great tavernas right on the harbour.
The hotel is very clean and tidy and excellent value for money.

Niriis is a very nice hotel & our stay there was unforgettable! The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean & the prices were at least very reasonable (including free internet access-the only hotel around with this offer!!!). Also, an amazing beach was only a few minutes away on foot & the town close by. A highly recommended hotel! George, thanx for this lovely experience!

It;s the third time we are visiting Crete, this time was for a wedding and we were looking for a budget hotel to spend two hassle-free nights. Niriis is a very good option for young travelers, but also small families. The service is well run, but most of all we valued the very friendly and helpful staff.
