Kriti Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is a modern hotel near the centre. I choose this hotel because you can park your car for free nearby. The rooms are well equiped with airco, tv, free wifi, a locker, fridge, toilet and shower. My room was rather small, but there are bigger rooms for a higher price. Breakfast and a small bottel of raki are included. There is a large pool, but it is in the shade in the late afternoon. The centre is within walking distance along the shore. I will certainly come back in future.

Stayed there for 11 nights with my husband Hotel staff are very friendly and polite. Rooms/ balcony clean but a little on the small size and not enough storage for clothes but toiletries are a nice touch, comfy beds and options for pillows. Pool area was nice only issue was not enough sun lounges. Breakfast was continental nice but not enough choice. Ideal location for old and new town 10 mins stroll.

Staff couldn't be more helpful. Spotlessly clean and well maintained. Only downside for me was the breakfasts, which were boring - pretty much the same every day and not great quality. Location is great for walking to the Old Town.

We arrived on the 5th and left on the 15th June for a 10 day holiday in Chania. We normally stay in tourist places but decided to try a normal business hotel and what a lovely surprise it was. Kriti is a super hotel served by professional yet personal and friendly staff. All the staff are courteous and customer centric. The rooms are (as you would expect) maintained to a high standard and the pool and bar area is very good and popular. We will return. Thank you for making our holiday in Chania so relaxing and memorable.

Situated just outside the old town, Kriti is nearly next to the football stadium and within easy walk to the old town with its wonderful shops and tavernas. A modern hotel, the rooms were very clean and well appointed - although I'd rather have a kettle and coffee than Raki, personally! There was a fridge with a few complimentary drinks and a nice bathroom. The beds were comfy and the pillows especially. Breakfast was pretty good with a decent range of continental and cooked items plus fresh juice and real coffee. There was a nice looking pool too, and a small gym although we didn't partake.

I am travelling around Crete for the week with my boyfriend and just finished our 3 day stay in Chania at the Kriti Hotel. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome and comfortable. The reception staff were very friendly and were keen to help us when needed, for example when we asked for an adapter. The cleaning staff were also great, going above and beyond by folding our very unorganised clothes. The hotel itself very clean and well furnished with a smart bar at the front entrance and a nice pool area. The gym was very small and limited but was probably enough for what might be needed on holiday. Our room was great. The bathroom was clean and the towels were replaced daily. The shower was powerful and had plenty hot water. We had a balcony facing onto the main street which had a great view of the sea. The bed was very comfy and we were given arrival drinks of Raki and water. The breakfast was my favourite part about our stay at Kriti with everything from freshly squeezed orange juice, to Greek yogurt with various toppings to cooked breakfast and cakes to finish. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in a great location of Chania as it was a 5 minute walk from the centre and a 10 minute walk to the old port.

Kriti is modern, clean hotel near Venetian harbour.Staff is very polite and helpfull. Breakfast is great and can be enjoyed at the pool. Bottle of raki was always waiting for us in the room. Bar in lobby is open whole day.

With my hand on my heart, this is a truly a great place to stay if visiting Chania. The location is perfect. It's literally just 5 minutes from the markets, harbour, restaurants and the enchanting old town. Our room had a balcony ( complimentary Raki in our room)was spacious. There is a pillow menu (never seen one of these before). The mini fridge contents were reasonably priced. The shower/WC room was nice ( complimentary shower gel, shampoo were top notch) It's rare but breakfast started at 07.00 up to 12.00 noon. Great choice (my wife loved the fresh orange juice machine, feed in fresh oranges and hey presto!) Everthing fresh. There is a shallow pool that was nice to sit around and have the occasional dip. There is an Internet room( hotel wifi was great anywhere in the hotel, even around the pool) and a gym. Finally all staff were very friendly and helpful. As a low budget hotel this offers so much more. You can't go wrong

Great location - quiet yet easy walk to main town area and old port. We had caught the public bus from Heraklion to Chania so walked to the hotel from main bus station - dragging bags and having to stop at lights, it probably took us 15 minutes and this included stopping a couple of times to ask for directions- this wasn't a problem - we asked in shops and they all knew the hotel. Once you start walking from the hotel to go into the main shopping area, there are so many short cuts - you can't seem to go wrong whichever street you decide to turn down - one leads into another, no matter how narrow. Or just follow the waterfront round from the hotel (you can see the water from the front of the hotel). We couldn't complain about the service, the friendliness of the staff or the cleanliness of the hotel. Initially I thought the hotel had a sterile feel to it inside but I think it's because the corridors to the rooms don't have the warmth of pictures and the rooms have vinyl floor covering - very sensible but just adds to the "stark" feel perhaps in comparison to other hotels we have stayed in. The pool area is very nice and there was a good buffet Breakfast each morning so, all in all, a very pleasant stay. We were also upgraded at no extra cost to a junior suite which gave us a separate lounge area ((the room overlooking the pool) and having this extra space (we stayed for 4 nights) was very much appreciated.

We were pleasantly surprised with the Kriti Hotel. The rooms are very clean, lovely toiletries provided, staff friendly and polite and location great. It was our first visit to Crete and the hotel was recommended to us. We booked a larger room as we were staying for 10 days. We thought the hotel provided great value for money.
