The family operating the hotel is very hostitable, friendly, clean and always willing to assist. They gave us directions when we wanted to find thing out about their town. There is actually nothing to complain about. The hotel is about 20 min walk to the main part of the tourist area it has however its own section of cafes and restaurants right on the water. Pricing is very reasonanle. I highly recommend it.
This hotel is family run. We were received by a young gentleman who promptly pointed on a map where are all the services ( and the scams to avoid) nearby: a small sandy beach with no service, the old port, the central market, all are about 5 minutes away. A nicer sandy beach with seat lounges/sun shade is about 2 miles away on the other side of the old town. We had a very nice, bright and clean room with a small balcony with sea view, ceramic floor, clean bathroom with a glass enclosure shower, comfortable bed. Breakfasts were served by the mother(?) of the gentleman at the front desk in a small dining room : freshly pressed orange juice, coffee, boiled egg, ham and bread, local cheese, half a danish, no choice however. With such a reasonable room price, it is an excellent choice to consider.…
This hotel is very central and walking distance to the old town. It is right beside the beach for swimming. There is a huge variety of cafes, bars and resturants nearby. Owner has special deals for car rental which I would recommend. We came a bit early for checkin but the friendly staff made no fuss and solved any problems for us. We also got free local food while waiting. The staff were helpful in guiding to good local places and which places to avoid.
This is now our hotel of choice when we stay in Chania.Its about 15 minute walk from bus station .It is one block away from long esplanade / beach which is in turn fronted by a range of nice cafe/bars , most of whom serve good snacks .Not a fancy place but high standard rooms .Note : air conditioning set so it turns off if you open balcony window .If you head towards town you are immediately left with a choice , right towards bastion and five minute to old harbour or left into a rewarding maze of old streets that will eventually bring you to the market building .Not a lot of tourists in this part of town , and no bad thing.
Great service, very helpful and nice owners. Clean and neat. Excellent location, near the cafes and beaches. May also walk to the Agora and center of town. Great value for the money. If you need a taxi, just pick one up off the street. It is way cheaper than calling it in.
