Wonderful proprietors Elias & Lena, extremely kind and go out of their way to help and make your stay perfect. Outside the main town and in an elevated position so wonderful views from your room's generous balcony. Within 15-20 mins drive of some beautiful beaches on the Akrotiri Peninsular.

Room Tip: On the front of the hotel with balcony facing over the town and out to sea

We stayed there for three nights. The location is great since is away from the chaos but on a hill so very quiet and with a stunning view on the city. Most of the rooms have a balcony from where you can enjoy the amazing sunset on the city. By car then the city centre it's just a few minutes away. Spacious bedroom with a big hall too with character. Lots of light and quite clean. They provide bathrobes and slippers which is nice and complimentary water and wine which is very nice! The owners are lovely and accommodating. The only negative note was the bathroom, a bit squashed and with a constant smell of sewerage that would fade slightly in the morning or if you kept the windows open. Truly a shame because otherwise this is an amazing value for money that we highly recommend!

We spent 12 nights at Hotel Akrotiri from July 6th-18th.

We woke up to a wonderful view every day. The breakfast was wonderful. We have some allergies, and Lena was very accomodating, and brought us fresh gluten free bread every day. The breakfast area is outside with white table clothes and a very nice atmosphere. Also very family friendly. We could also bring the breakfast up to the room, where we some days had late breakfast on our private balcony.

There is a drying rack for drying clothes, which is great after a long day at the beach. The back yard is wonderful, with exotic animals and fruit trees.

When we arrived Ilias and Lena gave us maps and showed us how to get to the city and how to travel around the area. They are wonderful hosts, and are great at including you and making you feel at home and relaxed.

We did not have car, but that was no problem. Most people had a car, and there is plenty of parking spots available. There is a bus service close to the hotel that takes you downtown, It runs several times per hour, and a costs 1.20 if you have a prepaid ticket, or 2 Euros if you buy it on the bus. It takes about 10-15 minutes. A cab costs from 4-7 Euros. We also walked a few times, but found the bus to be more convenient due to the heat.

The room was cleaned every day, everything was clean and fresh towels every day if we wanted it.

The beds were comfortable, and there was a spacious wardrobe for hanging clothes.

There a gym nearby with a great view as well, and modern facilities. It costs 7 euros for a day pass, or 25 for four days.

We had a room with a ocean view, and that was very nice to wake up to.

If you want to go to the beach by bus, there is a bus stop 5 minutes a way that will take you to many of the popular beaches.

Lena is always avaliable and very helpful. Lena and Ilias even brought us with them for a familiy excursion to a nearby beach. Lena will also help you book all kinds of excursions should you be interested in that.

This is a great place to stay, we will return.

We stayed for one night but would have for more if we could. The rooms are really good -- we had a large bedroom with an excellent bed, then a separate room with chairs/TV/fridge, as well as a bathroom and a large balcony where you can hang clothes as well as eat/relax. The decor and feel of the place is very Cretian, very local, and the lady who runs it is very helpful and professional. It has that charm that accompanies family-run establishments. We were happy to stay there and would definitely return. A nice breakfast tomorrow. It's in a quiet suburb, so you need to take the bus into central Chania or have a rental car.
