I travel a lot and have experience of staying in some top hotels. Nival accommodation rivals some of the nicest I stayed in. Design is just as I love it - modern, sleek, fresh and comfortable. Place is extremely clean. Furnishings and bedding comfortable. Location good. Awesome place to stay!
The suite is very spacious and the bathroom as well (multiple shelves for toiletries!). We didn't hear our neighbors or the pita place downstairs - it was all very serene and quiet. The balcony is very cute and had two chairs and a small table. The kitchen area has a small sink and refrigerator and cups and plates as well which was helpful. We were gifted fresh fruit and wine upon our arrival! The location is perfect - very close to the harbor and a short walk into town (you can see the sea from the end of the block). The breakfast is not on site but at a lovely restaurant on the harbor. Don't let the walk discourage you from going - this was actually one of the best breakfasts we had in Crete - scenic and delicious! There is parking nearby if you need to park but we arrived via a bus from the port in Heraklion (ferry via Santorini). We checked in very late, around 11pm which is much later than check in, but our host was waiting for us! She had kindly written out the names of different restaurants to try in the area and made sure we were provided with beach towels as well which we used for our Elafonissi beach day. I could not recommend Nival Luxury Suites enough - Nikoleta was very kind and helpful and the location cannot be beat. There is a lively delicious pita place just below the property and we enjoyed that as well! Highly, highly recommend Nival Luxury Suites!
If you are looking for a hotel with a loby and a spa, this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for a 5 star BnB, then you just found it.
Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner/host Nikoleta and we immediately felt very welcome. She had a list ready with nearby sites and her restaurant recommendations were great. In the room a fruit basket awaited along with a bottle of wine. Furthermore there was a tray with choices of instant coffee and tea which was re stocked every day. In the bathroom the usual soaps and lotions. The rooms are very well decorated, serviced daily and are exactly as shown in the pictures on their website. Everything is very clean and new. Location is great - just 100 meters away from the old town/harbour. If there was something bad to be said that would be the noise from the street and the church bell, but that is expected at this location. Having said that, if the windows are closed, its fine and we never had any problems sleeping. If we were ever back in Chania, we wouldnt stay anywhere else besides here. Highly recommended, Great value for money!!!
