The Porto Veneziano Hotel is located in Chania, in the prime location of the Old Venetian Harbor, on the seafront and only a 10-minute walk from the city center. It is an ideal place to stay, with the most popular attractions within walking distance. Completing the room renovation in April 2013, the hotel now offers a minimal navy design, excellent quality beds with double mattresses and geothermal air conditioning system, friendly to the environment. The hotel has been certified to serve a full Greek Breakfast buffet with a Cretan note and attempts to provide a journey to the island's flavors and tastes. Enjoy daily our freshly squeezed orange juice, local produce, homemade dishes, traditional cookery, seasonal fruit, freshly made desserts etc. At the Bar, after strolling through the beautiful harbor, guests will enjoy all kinds of coffee and Cretan flavorsome concoctions, snacks, sweets, ice cream, drinks and an assortment of Greek and European ice cold beer. The hotel even offers free Wi-Fi and all rooms and interior public areas are strictly nonsmoking.

Porto Veneziano is beyond compare! I visit Chania and Crete almost every summer, for more than 20 years, and I can guarantee that it's by far the best hotel in the old harbor! Spacious rooms, comfortable matresses, modern big bathroom with all amenities, balconies with sea or

Room was rather small, but had a balcony the looked out onto a beautiful view of the harbor. Minibar allows you two free bottle of water every day, and a plate of cookies awaited us upon arrival. Staff was almost absurdly friendly; they flagged us down as we came into the lobby

Does this hotel have a swimming pool, or use of one nearby, please?
It’s so close to the ocean you don’t need a pool. They will give you towels for swimming.

Dear friend Crete is not only a place for vacation. Crete is an experience !!in my opinion you Have to walk , see , ride, smell , investigate , travel and find out many and different beauties than the things you already know !!old harbour must be your base!!!ok there are some beaches only 1km from your hotel like new land and some others only 3 or 4 km like saint apostoloi but do not loose the chance to go west like platanias, Maleme etc!the more west the more interesting!!visit north side too!!all the region of chania is a real treasure!!great food at the tavern of emilia's at zourva village at the highlands!!sfakia village and cannyon of samaria are musts too!! Contact with hotel manager and ask him if he could ensure for you a nice view room!!if I were you I would ask for it via trip advisor app !!explain then that the reason that you choose them was the reviews about view and that you want live the experience!!hope you have a great stay and have fun

How far is the beach from the hotel? And how do we get there ?
Hi. There is no beach in Chania Town - it it is a stone-walled harbour with rocks. As far as I can recall the nearest beaches to the hotel are around Makris Tichos which is about 3-4km from the hotel. However we were on an archaeological trip so didn’t visit any beaches. I’m sure if you message the hotel they can tell you which are the best beaches and how far they are.

Is there parking ?
The wisest choice is to ask the desk staff to take care of it for you. They know where you can and can't far better than you ever would. Be certain someone has the presence of mind to jot a note where it is parked. Just be sure to avoid leaving any temptations in sight. That has zero to do with the hotel staff, but apart from being smart globally, it's just amazing during warmer weather what stunts certain drunken tourists will try when thinking nobody is looking.
