Lovely hotel within easy walking distance of Chania harbour and Old Town.Fabulous breakfast with lots of choice including cooked options. Rooms were spacious and modern. Staff were friendly and efficient; nothing was too much trouble,Pool area was immaculate.I would definitely recommend this hotel.

My wife and I recently spent 10 nights here. It's possibly the cleanist hotel hotel we have stayed in with very friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble for Yvette the manager. Great choice for breakfast. Ana on reception was great.

Excellent hotel in a good location, about 5 minute walk to main harbour & old town. All the staff are friendly & helpful. Bedrooms were clean and comfortable, nicely decorated with efficient air con. Breakfast buffet offered a wide choice.

Very nice hotel! Clean rooms and spacious! Close to the old port so you can walk around easily. No need for a taxi. breakfast was quite good with many options. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks.

We stayed here for a week this year, first time coming to Greece. So happy we booked this hotel through Thomsons, it was really lovely. The rooms are very spacious, with a balcony over looking the pool. The staff are very welcoming and happy to help you with anything. Pool got a bit busy at times, but sun beds were great for if you were just having a chill day by the pool. It's also close to some great restaurants, and about a 5 minute walk from the harbour. Best thing about this hotel I've got to say is the breakfast. The best hotel breakfast we've had. The spread was great; hot food, cold meats, cheeses, cereal, fresh fruit, teas, coffee, greek yoghurt, nuts, freshly made bread. The fresh orange juice machine was brilliant, so good. It was just great to have such a good breakfast every morning. Also you can get a packed breakfast for if you're going out somewhere early. Would definitely recommend this hotel for couples. We were the youngest there, but had a great stay. Only thing I've got to say is, I hope they change it to an adults only hotel. It would be a great hotel for younger couples like us as it's very clean and modern, should definitely sell it as this sort of hotel.

The hotel & the rooms look old fashioned and basic, there is nothing fancy or eye catching about this hotel. Hotel seemed to be fully booked. There seemed to be very few young visitors when we visited. Rooms were comfortable & clean. Double bed was huge and there was a pillow menu(!). The staff was very friendly & helpful, the wonderful staff is the thing that makes this somewhat grey hotel stand out and make it worth the stay. The swimming pool is nice. And of course, the location is perfect. We had a small balcony with an amazing view of the beach. Definitely Recommended.

The Kriti is a fabulous choice for several reasons - the absolutely perfect location , the comfort , the convenience, the attention to detail and cleanliness but the most important reason for rating this hotel so highly is the fantastic staff. All of the staff, especially those behind the scenes. They are great! And their attitude and welcome have made our stay wonderful. Thank you so much.

We only stayed for 4 nights but were very happy and wished we had booked for longer. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean and comfortable and the food was great. The hotel was only a few minutes walk away from the harbour and old town. Very conveniently placed for the bus route to and from the airport. Even the main bus station in the town centre was not too far away to walk to.

We just stayed here one night when we landed in Crete and the next morning we drove to Elfonisi beach. The hotel is clean, staff is friendly, rooms are comfortable, there is a medium sized parking lot available for guests.

Just returned from 11 nights here and can honestly say it was perfect for our needs. We wanted a clean hotel 10 mins from the centre with a pool and lovely breakfast with superb staff and got exactly that. We requested a room with PM shade and were given 410 on the top floor with sea views and the amusing car parks and stage for some shows, great views. As it was over 30 degrees every day the pool provided some shade but we nearly always found a sunbed though they could provide a few more. Breakfast was unlimited and all morning so no rush hour period. Parking was free right outside and we always found a spot within about 70yards of the door though some of the local parking needs to be seen to be believed! Overall, a perfect holiday base and so glad we chose this over the Samurai as that hotel was on a busy road next to the bus station, we chose well.
