We had booked this hotel through Fantasy Travel in Athens as part of a larger Crete travel package. This was a hotel suggested by our travel agent. It is centrally located in the old part of Chania close to waterfront, shops, and restaurants. The hotel is in an historic building that was once the French embassy and is located in...

Very friendly staff. A very welcome drink on arrival. Harbour view rooms are at the top of three flights of stairs but worth it. They went to a lot of effort to provide a gluten free breakfast. Thoroughly recommend the hotel.

I stayed here for 5 nights on my first visit to Crete. I found the staff very helpful and friendly (as were most people on this lovely island), they helped me book some excursions which were excellent. This 650 year old renovated Venetian building with a long interesting history is extremely comfortable with "old world" decor. My room was very...

Lovely old boutique hotel in the old town part of Chania. Sister hotel to the Belmondo which we have stayed in before. Our room was not as big as in the Belmondo, but it was more than adequate for just a two night stay. Breakfast was OK, but choice for us Brits was a bit limited. Sadly, no boiled eggs,...

The staff are very welcoming and the lady that does the breakfast never stops, cleaning all the rooms too. We asked for a room with a bath as I am a little closterphobic and cannot do showers...

My wife and I stayed at The Porto del Colombo Hotel in the late 90s. Back then there was little in terms of online hotel advice. We simply took a travel book from the library and called this place from a pay phone in Athens. We hadn't made any plans where to stay in Chania, and the Frommer’s or Fodor’s...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our Hotel, an imposing, tall, 600 year old building, has gathered a rich history over the passing of the centuries. During the days of Turkish Rule, the building housed members of high ranking Turkish military who made many changes to the buildings architecture - even built a Hamam.In the garden and next to that, a room to secure their slaves (where you can still see the metallic rings nailed to the walls). In the beginning of the 19th Century, the building was used as a French embassy and later was inhabited by the great Greek political figure, Eleftherios Venizelos, who also used it as his political offices until his move to Athens, when he took power as Prime Minister of Greece. The Hotel has 10 beautiful rooms - the 2 of which are maisonettes - fully restored and traditionally decorated to provide our guests with an especially warm and welcome feeling. All rooms have modern conveniences (WC, telephone, TV, mini-bar, air-conditioning and Central Heating in winter) ensuring our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. ... more   less
