The hotel is in a very good location, opposite the sea. There was plenty of parking space available (at least in the beginning of october..) The staff were ready to help you with anything. The rooms were basic, the beds were a little too hard, and the pillows not so comfortable. The breakfast was ok concerning variety, though i would... More

We really loved our time in Danaos. The staff was nice and the room and toilet always clean. The location is indeed perfect: in front of a very nice beach and near great restaurants. 15 minutes walk to get to the old venetian harbour. Our holidays there were a delight and very affordable. We stayed in a room with city... More

The location of this hotel cannot be beat as it is perfectly situated to old town Chania and the beach is across the street! Enjoy your breakfast (or in my case morning cig and beer) on the patio out front and listen to the sound of the waves. After that just grab a towel (beach towels provided by the hotel)... More

Stayed at this very basic hotel for a while. Perfect location of you like a lovely beach. Some of the staff here are extremely rude and miserable. One guy was so rude he wouldn't even look at me .. I paid thousands !! They make you feel like you owe them something all the time- but your the one paying... More

We spent the first nights of our trip. The room was nothing special but the location had a great beach and is walking distance to the old Venetian harbor and really great breakfast option. Staff was very friendly. We rented car and always found parking right in front on street.

If you are looking for a clean, friendly, and convenient place to stay on the beach, then this hotel is perfect for you. The location is fantastic and a short 10-second walk to the beach.

Had another great stay at Danaos. Very handy for our group opposite the beach and close to the town. Unfortunately the rooms are looking a bit shabbier than they were 9 years ago, however everything spotlessly clean and to be honest we didn't spend alot of time in our rooms. We had a room with balcony overlooking the beach which... More
