“Great Stay for 3 friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

This is one of the most memorable places I've stayed, with a great view of the harbor, elegantly simple rooms and architecture, good breakfast, right in the middle of town but not loud, restaurants and bars conveniently nearby. We were only here 2 or 3 days, and could've stayed 2 or 3 days longer and done some day trips out of Chania.

This beautiful renovated house has three special rooms/suites in a prefect location. We were in the double room and had a small balcony overlooking the old Venetian harbor. The view was amazing. It was wonderful watching the light change on the buildings as the sun went down. Breakfasts were delicious with fruit, eggs, etc. coming from the owner's farm. The fresh squeezed orange juice was the best! Matina (owner) and Diana were wonderful. Mama Nena and Chania were the highlights of our Crete trip.

Room Tip: Only the double room has a balcony over looking the water.

This accommodation has the best possible location, is extremely stylishly decorated, and had the most delightful and warm welcome. Our room came with a stunning view of the harbour as well as its own balcony area at the back. As well as the room being very comfortable, the breakfast, made with ingredients from the owners' farm, was absolutely delicious. We have only the highest possible praise for this lovely place and its owners. For us, this sets the standard for upmarket B&Bs.

My husband and I came here on our honeymoon and we loved it!! The hotel is wonderful. The design is cozy and luxurious at the same time. Diana and Matina were both such friendly happy women we felt right at home. The breakfast there is top notch and I have never had such a good glass of orange juice in my life. The are so accommodating. We went on a gorge hike and so we had to leave earlier than breakfast is served so Diana left sandwiches in our fridge so we wouldn't go hungry. Such a great experience I would recommend this hotel to anyone!!

Room Tip: If you don't like stairs the top room is not for you.

My husband and I stayed at Mama Nena for three nights in May 2013. The hotel is perfectly formed and beautifully decorated. Our room was perfect with a fantastic view, comfortable bed, modern bathroom and easy chairs for relaxing in. The little touches of magazines, biscuits and grappa made you feel like you were staying in someone’s home.
Breakfast was delightful with produce from the family farm and different options offered each day. One morning we headed off quite early to hike the Samaria Gorge and they were happy to put together a breakfast pack for us to take with us when we left at 6am. The only downside for the entire stay was the noise from the nightclubs surrounding the harbour that throbbed throughout the night, the only way to sleep was to wear ear plugs. Despite this I would recommend this charming hotel to all.

Beautiful, tasteful, individual boutique hotel. The best in Hania. The design & luxurious finish beats all international 5 star chains.
In fact, this hotel has the edge in many ways... Two of the most beautiful welcoming smiles on the island (Diana & Matina, the lovely hosts);
Expert local advice and ideas from them both (things to do & see off the tourist trail);
Delicious & varied breakfasts with organic & homemade produce from matinas farm & Diana's (including free range eggs; greek yogurt; fresh tomatoes & cucumber & goats cheese & lovely bread & homemade preserves) garden.
Diana also brings fresh homemade delicious cake every couple of days, our favourite being the orange and chocolate cake!
This view of the harbour from our suits was amazing.
The monogrammed pillows, gowns & slippers were an added luxury.
Whole experience was of a well polished, cosy home from home. A fantastic, beautiful hotel which made our time in Crete very happy & memorable.,
I would recommend this to everyone looking to stay in Crete. If is a jewel of a place and Matina and Diana ensure your stay will be all it can be. They are the perfect hosts.

They say that photos worth 1000 words. But Mama Nena was more than words and photos can describe. Very stylish, comfortable enviroment, with amazing view in Old Port, and details that make you feel like home. Don't miss out breakfast!
