Outstanding first impression due to very hospitable staff. Great atmosphere that makes it easy to relax. The breakfast spread was delicious! Good assortment of breads, pastries, fruit juices, cheeses, etc. I am already looking forward to breakfast tomorrow. The only thing keeping this from being a five star review is the wifi in the room is not good enough to...

Avra City Hotel is conveniently situated close by to the Municipal Market of Chania, around all kinds of commercial shops, cafes, pharmacies, banks, boulangeries and 15 min walking from the old port. Right next to the Municipal Garden of Chania that one should not miss because of the historical Kipos Cafe! Standard rooms have WiFi, complimentary tea and instant coffee...

The hotel's best feature is its staff! The receptionists were welcoming, always gave us a warm greeting and answered all our questions with useful information in excellent English. The accommodation itself is clean, modern and has helpful extras like tea making facilities, fruit and water in the room, a safe, a balcony....Breakfasts were super and it was no bother to...

Very average hotel that offers basic WiFi, cable and a more modern room. Very European setup in terms of bed and small room. I would say that the cost is high in the downtown core of Chania and this is no different. Hiked prices for those that want to be within quick walking distance of market. I provided a quick...

We stayed at the Avra City Hotel six nights and it was a great stay! We had room with a really nice garden view. The room was was quite big with a lot of space to put your stuff. The bathroom was nice too, although the water pressure in the shower was quite low, but that's normal on Holidays :)...

We stayed here 4 nights. The location is great. 5-10mins from the harbour. The service was amazing. Christina answered all my questions and concerns about some excursions we were interested in, she helped us book our taxi for a very early flight, offered us an early breakfast to accommodate us on the day of our departure! She was great! The...

We stayed 3 days at this hotel, in a suit for 3 people (not kids included). The room was clean and well equiped. The little balcony outside was nice with view at the park, nice especially for those who smoke, they don't have to go out and the room stays clean. The breakfast was good enough, had several choices, however...

We stayed here for 4 nights and found Avra really good for our trip. There is a car park which we used and the staff were all really helpful and friendly. Breakfast is served from 7am but they specially put out a small breakfast at 5:30am when we did the Gorge walk. A short walk from the busy Chania centre.
