It is very hard to rate this establishment as it has some major pluses but also some major minuses. Its a nice and clean building which would look much nicer if it wasn't for a huge metal garbage container right at the front entrance (see picture). Also the area just outside of the freezing swimming pool looks like deserted ruins hit by a bomb. Our room was nicely prepared for our arrival with a customary bottle of wine in the fridge. The hotel is located west of Chania within a walking distance to the city center. Furher west along the coast there are some nice beaches with umbrellas and beach chairs. But the area before that looks like it was hit by an earthquake as there are some ugly ruins along the coast with broken remains of some structures there. To the east you have to walk to town through a dirt road and bushes. A bit scary. to walk back at night.. The hotel is run by a nice receptionist- Zambia. However beware of the house cleaning . The banging starts at 7AM. The DO NOT DISTURB sign written in four languages means nothing. They knock on your door, enter without permission regardless if you are in or out.
To stay there for more than few days without a car would be a challenge. The shower was hardly delivering any water. To add misery to our stay the taxi back to the airport requested by Zambia did not arrive. Lucky there was sufficient time to call another taxi as otherwise we would have to stay in Sea View Hotel for another week ( sleapy hotel owner did not even wanted to hear about possibly driving us to the airport)
