“A Real Gem”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I made my booking through booking.com because all recommended hotels for conference were full. Description made it sound like just what I needed but the price was low which made me think that a struggle might lie ahead.

I was so wrong! Room - fabulous. Balcony - huge, with a view to the harbor. Check-in - perfect. Check-out - perfect. Breakfast - always ready early, and the staff always offered coffee as I departed early each day. Noise - none, except when Greece was playing World Cup match and won. Gotta give them that!

It was my first time in Chania, and when I return I will return to the Archontiki. Whether for business or pleasure. Many thanks to them!

FOR THOSE LESS MOBILE: One thing some readers should note is that Reception is not on the ground floor, and the stairs are very steep. The lift does not come down to street level, you must go up 5 - 10 stairs to reach the lift. I did not ask them if they can accomodate mobility in other ways, but another person might want to ask.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with harbor view.

Perfect location. Elevator fits 2 people and one luggage. Breakfast is delicious. Rooms are clean. Air conditioning was a problem at first but I fixed it myself. Had the best view on the top floor. Staff was nice. They showed us how to get to everything. Wifi is wierd. There's a differnt signon for each floor.

Stayed June 8-10, 2014. Needed a clean, inexpensive room with easy access to the bus station for a good price. This was perfect. Reception was wonderful- so accommodating. Room was clean and just as expected/advertised. Nice to have a balcony to sit on during down time...and dry clothes. Would definitely go back.

The Archontiki Hotel is in the perfect location for exploring Chania. We arrived by bus, and the hotel is about a 3-minute walk away which was incredibly convenient. It is only about a 5-minute walk to the endless side streets, which is ideal for shopping and taking packages back to your room. It is off on a side street so the noise isn't a factor. The staff was unbelievably friendly, which we found to be the norm for the people of Chania, and Crete in general. The breakfast was filling, the wifi and air conditioning worked great. Ask for 502 when you check in - it has a huge balcony and a wonderful view of the town and the sea!

Room Tip: Ask for room 502 - it has an awesome view!

We had a room on forth floor with a huuuuge terrace, with view over the city center, the mountains, and a bit of the sea. The staff was very kind and helpful. In fact, most people we met in Crete were truly nice. Room was clean enough (but not especially clean), spacious, not exactly cozy, but you spend most time outside anyway. Would definitely return here.

Room Tip: Room 402 is large and has a big terrace, maybe the biggest of all the rooms.

Hotel is situated 10 minutes walk from the port, in the center of Chania. Our room had beautyfull view of the sea from one side and the mountains on the other side. Hotel service is fast and invisible :) During breakfast they clean the room perfectly.
Breakfasts are quite ok.
Good quality for good price

Great location! 5 minutes by walk from the venetian harbour. Good breakfast, rooms are of the right size and very clean. Just one negative point: it is quite hard to park the car. Great solution also for the price! I'll recommend it!
