Located at one of the most privileged spots in the city of Hania, Kriti Hotel is really in the centre of attention.
It is only 50 metres away from the cosmopolitan beach of Koum Kapi, where you will come across many cafeterias, bars, restaurants and taverns. Koum Kapi is definitely the place to start your evening outings, to have your first drinks and to enjoy your dinner, surrendered to the sound of the waves and the sea breeze.
Equally near and at a mere distance of less than 200 metres lies the Old Venetian Harbour and the Old City of Hania. Wander around the narrow Venetian streets of the Old City and be carried away to another time. Here you will come across many little shops where you will find, admire and buy folk art items, gifts and memorabilia for you and your loved ones.
You may also stroll down the picturesque Old Venetian Harbour of Hania and see the famous Venetian Lighthouse that is overlooking the Harbour. The Firkas Fort at the entrance of the Harbour houses the Naval Museum with exhibits from the island’s naval history. In the streets of the harbour that is packed with people all year round you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or a refreshing cocktail or even have a meal in one of the numerous taverns and restaurants that offer both local and international cuisine. Then, continue your walk and see some of the city’s most important sights such as the Megalo Arsenali (Great Shipyard), the Neoria (Shipyards) and the Yali Tzamisi Mosque. The Old Venetian Harbour is an ideal destination at night as it is at noon.
For culture or sports fans, Kriti Hotel is definitely the place to stay. The Eastern Moat Theatre is opposite the Hotel on its north side and the National Stadium of Hania is right on the next block on the south side of the hotel. Various cultural and athletic events are held there all year round and particularly in the summer. The National Stadium of Hania is also available for those of you who wish to go jogging in the morning, play football or basketball with your friends.
For those of you who wish to explore the rest of the island, the beaches and the sights, we can help you rent a car or a motorcycle. For any further information you may require, all you have to do is contact the hotel reception staff that will provide all the necessary information on beaches, sights, local boat itineraries, rates as well as useful advice.
