Reviewed 17 January 2013

I consider myself lucky because I booked it for the price and I had much more than a budget hotel.
Me and my girlfriend had a wonderful time staying in the hotel. We had many recommendation where to go and what to see. The room gives you the feeling of modern and comfortable and it's very clean and cozzy.
Ask Christos to tell you where should you go out at night. The area is very central with a lot of choices for night life.
It is very close to the tourist attractions, but is quiet.
I recommend it especially to those who have a car.

Chania is a great place to just stroll around, and this hotel is in a good location being just a five to ten minute walk away from the main part of town. Not too imposing from the outside, but inside the hotel is very smart. The room we had was modern, clean and comfortable, with a small balcony overlooking the road. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the free use of internet in the lobby was a bonus. Good value for money and would certainly recommend the place to others. We stayed during October, so 'room only' basis, no breakfast, and parking wasn't a problem, but I imagine it may be an issue during trhe high season.

I recommend Hotel Filoxenia very highly! Rooms are nice and you can find everything you need: fridge, hair dryer, fresh towels on every morning, little patio on every room, breakfast and the most importantly AC. Service is very friendly and warm and the owner's son is great guy! He can tell you the best beaches, places to shop with locals and rent car for you if needed. They also gave us a little discount when we wanted to book one extra day at the hotel (our home flight left at 11pm). The price was very reasonable and we really enjoyed our time in Hotel Filoxenia.

Ps. Hotel is located to that old harbour, where you see no other tourists, all great greek restaurants are and the price level is much more reasonable that there in venetzian harbour.

Let me start with the mundane. The room was fine, clean, adequate. Access was from a narrow side street near the harbour. With the door of our room just off reception and adjacent to the bar, things got a little noisy, including someone clinking glasses at 3am! But this was more than offset by the personality of the proprietor's son, Xristos. He didn't bat an eyelid at our late check-in as our plane was delayed to 11pm, discussed our proposed itinerary of Crete with us, shared his own photos of the the south coast, recommended alternatives, sent us off into the night to view the harbour lighthouse while it was all dark, and set us up to use the hotel internet and printer. And when we left behind a feather pillow, he ensured it was waiting for us on our return. What a marvellous introduction to Crete!

We stayed at the hotel for a weekend in Sept and we can just say that we were perfectly satisfied with the place. Clean, fairly sized rooms, great location next to the beach and the city, and the hotel manager was very helpful in giving us trip advice. Definitely recommendable!
