Kriti Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location, in walk distance to the marina, the old town, the central market and the more comercial downtown.The hotel is modern with all the extras that you may expect from a 4 stars, incluiding a swimming pool and bar until midnight. The breakfast was good with some amazing geek yogurt and a complete international breakfast. I don't eat gluten but for me the eggs, bacon an tomato was more than enougt. There is also a small local beach only 5 min away and I did enjoy the cristal clear medetirranean waters.

Stayed here for a week in early June with my wife and 2 friends. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Room is small but recently refurbished, cleaned daily to a high standard. Pool area is compact, and it's usually possible to get a sunbed or a table and chairs.There's a small bar in the hotel foyer which is open til mid-night but isn't always staffed, but a quick word at reception will resolve this. They will also take drinks to you at the pool, prices are reasonable. Breakfast offers a wide selection both hot & cold, & the fresh orange juice machine and the coffee machine are bot good features . Location is great, a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Chania's Venetian Harbour and lighthouse. Take any back street from the waterfront and you will find yourself in a labyrinth of alleyways and narrow streets where you will find literally hundreds of shops,bars and restaurants. If you fancy something a little quieter, walk down from the hotel to the seafront and turn right where you'll find a small selection of bars and restaurants . Would I return ? Most certainly.

It has ramps, a lift, automatic door on flat and wet rooms with showers in the rooms. Most amazingly they have at least one accessible room on the ground floor (no panicking about stairs or painful evacuation chairs!). The reception staff are friendly and helpful. Downside (why I didn't give 5 stars) is there's no gluten free options and the lift was small for my mobility scooter (tiempo rapide).

just arrived back after a week at kriti hotel. very friendly staff, after minor hick up with our rooms we were upgraded to 3rd floor room and looked after. 3rd floor rooms are much bigger than 2nd floor rooms. good position for harbour & bus station 15 mins. very clean hotel. only downside the breakfasts were adequate but bacon,sausage not very good & no bake beans but no big deal really.

The hotel is a nice city hotel ! The people of the hotel are friendly and polite . Clean and comfortable rooms . The view from our room was not special but for a single room the room was excellent ! The hotel is located very close to the centre of the city and very close to the old harbour. The breakfast was very nice with freshly squeezed orange. Also there is a nice pool area.

The hotel is a very nice city hotel ! The top element of the hotel are the people ! Really friendly ,and polite . Clean and comfortable rooms . The view from our room was not special but for a family of 4 the room was excellent ! The breakfast was very nice but I would appreciate a different choice after the 3rd visit to the breakfast buffet .

Very friendly staff who managed to change our room to a double after a mix-up. Always ready with a friendly greeting. The room was spotlessly clean after servicing and we noticed that the pool and poolside was cleaned at least once everyday. Good choice for breakfast with freshly squeezed orange, breads, cakes and croissants and a hot buffet selection. Of course there was honey and yoghurt plus nuts and raisins etc. plus some cereals.

Its not big but its a great little hotel. Really close to the Venetian harbour and all the bars, restaurants and cafes. Nice pool area to cool down, not the biggest but big enough, Breakfast buffet is also really good. Hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are really attentive.

I stayed in the Kriti Hotel just before the start of the busy season (April) and found it to be a neat, relaxed hotel in a great city centre location (it is <5 minutes walk to the Old Venetian Harbour). The staff were friendly and room service efficient. The pool area was perfect when we were there (quiet) however I can't speak for busy season as there did not appear to be many sun beds overall (this may change however). Breakfast was nice too with great availability times of 7-11:30 (which caters for those of us who struggle to get out of bed on holiday!). Overall Kriti Hotel contributed to a great week in Chania and I would highly recommend to any other travellers. Thanks again!

Recently refurbished hotel in the center of the city. Courteous staff, great location. You can walk to the port and the old city or stay away from it's noise. Also there is free parking in the back of the hotel.
