A wonderful stay at Frida's.
Our apartment opened out directly to sea view. Wi fi connection was excellent, air con worked well and breakfast was good. The hotel staff were all very friendly, made you feel at home and the premises are clean. The beach is just a 10 minute walk away and is clean and quiet!
You can walk to Chania city for 15-20 min or take a taxi for €5 or even bus for €1 one way
A perfect choice if you are looking for a break...

Just returned from a great family stay at Frida apartments. An excellent place to relax in its own right and also a great base from which to explore. Staff are really friendly and very helpful. Special mention must go to Joanna and George who were only too happy to help out or suggest great trips and alternative highlights in exploring this area of Crete.

Rooms are simple and functional but kept really clean by diligent cleaners every other day or so. Apartments and studios have all you need for a comfortable self-catering stay. Kitchen facilities are two small hobs alongside draining board and sink. Pans, plates, glasses and cutlery is all there. Food prep space was limited but as we asked nicely we were also allowed to use the restaurant BBQ on site and this made for some more inspirational meals and less cramped food prep. Restaurant served good food if you are feeling more lazy. Air con was reliable and very welcome and showers were as hot or cold as you like. WiFi was excellent and free so you can be very connected if you wish. The two pools are great, clean and perfect to cool off at any time of day. Sunbeds and chairs were on hand around pools with or without shades so you can have as much sun as you wish. Pool areas also never felt crowded even when many apartments were occupied.

Location is good, being just outside Chania, so you can take or leave the more touristy areas. Rooms and communal areas are quiet and relaxing with views out to sea and glorious sunsets. Only 25-30 mins walk to centre of Chania (but a hot walk in height of season so a 5 or 6 Euro taxi may be better bet). Nearest supermarket only 10-15 mins walk away and they can arrange taxi back if you have no car. Nearest beach is only 10-15 mins away and not bad. (Better beaches can be found in the area if you have a car though.)

Altogether a great place with great people. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: We had apartment by pool for two adults and studio for two teenage kids. Apartments have separate be...

Recently had 1 week at Frida. Enjoyed every minute of it. ITs on the outskirts of Chania and is a good 30 minute walk which ever way you go to the old Harbour. The beach is 10 minutes. Only dissapointment I noticed is that the towles laid out around the main pool are not changed daily, I counted the same ones for a at least 4 days. This to me is not very hygenic. The rooms were cleaned regularly. All in all enjoyed it though as its away from everything else and has beautifull views over the town of Chania and the sea.

If you want peace and quiet this is the place..

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Frida's. Our apartment opened out directly onto the terrace of one of the swimming pools, which was remarkably quiet for the time of year. Wi fi connection was excellent, air con worked well and was much appreciated in the very high temperatures we experienced. The hotel staff were all very friendly and the premises extremely clean. An unspoilt beach is just a ten minute walk away! This is a perfect choice if you are looking for a quiet retreat, a lazy beach holiday with plenty of reasonably priced restaurants nearby.

We stayed for 4 nights. Initial mistake of a studio instead of a 1-bedroom apartment was quickly corrected. Staff very helpful, especially on reception. Nothing was too much trouble. We wanted a good swimming pool, relaxing sunbed environment, quiet sunny terrace - and it did not disappoint. Great walks to beaches towards Chania and also the other way. Taxi was 5 euros to town. Booked Samaria Gorge through reception and all ran smoothly. I would choose this hotel again if in the area as it combines a good swimming pool with proximity to town.

Room Tip: We were near the children's pool which was sunny and spacious.

We booked this hotel because we though it was going to be better value for money since chania town centre is old style and small. It happened to be quite far from everything and luckly we got a car rented for the holidays so we could go back to town at night to have some food otherwise is quite isoleted.

The sorroundings are very nice, very quite up on the hill you can have see views and bar and pool have been restored recently which gives it a more modern look.

Apartment itself have to say was a bit disappointing since it didnt look at all like the pictures on the website, it was quite basic style and very dark with two low beds that were old, hard and noisy and had a little kitchen area to cook something (but no kettle or other appliances). The worst bit for me was the bathroom: we already knew that in some areas of greece they dont use shower screen but never though that was an issue but it was terrible. The water all over the floor every time we had a shower (have to say it was clean).

The staff very nice again, receptionist, housekeeping and bar all very pleasant. The bar is only open from may to october but apart from breakfast (only 7 euros per person) I wouldn´t personally have dinner because it is quiet and lack of atmospehere. They serve a daily menu and you can buy drinks or have a coffee by the pool suring the day. We enjoyed the pool area as there was minimum noise and very nice views to the sea.

If you want to walk to town is more than 30 min and there is also a beach but not sure how long it takes walking. We booked this hotel as we wanted to see chania, and is definetly worth it, is very nice town with plenty of restaurants to enjoy local food and more cultural than other areas in crete.

We would recommmend it for people who look for quiet and relax holidays but have a car to move around.

Room Tip: ask for apartment by the pool
