“Couldn't be more perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2011

Picture perfect location overlooking harbor, but just far enough away from nightlife bars and clubs to be peaceful at night. Very friendly and accommodating staff. We arrived very early in morning somewhat exhausted and they let us sleep in one of their other rooms while we were waiting for our rooms overlooking the harbor to become available. Also called archaeological sites for us to verify they would be open for us.

Excellent location. Right on the old harbor.. had a lovely time.
The breakfast was one of the best I've had..

Note that the room and bathroom are quite small.. but we were out a lot and just used the rooms to crash.

Although the property is a little run down, it's Europe (so you find more of that just by virtue of the age of some of the properties) and its right on the sea (tougher environment). The rooms are smallish (Europe again - I took a superior double, which I can only imagine the tiny box the regular not a double must be). The location is fantastic, at the old port and everything you want to do is accessible from the location. The staff extremely helpful. The breakfast is great, the highlight of which is the fresh squeezed orange juice machine, which is loaded with fresh oranges and away it goes, freshly squeezing juice at request. The Wi-Fi works great. No complaints at all, and a great stay in Chania!

Room Tip: Take a larger, sea view room (which is still small)

We arrived there without booking after a horrible experience at an alternate hotel in Chania. Peak season in Chania is not a great time to look for an unreserved room for a week with a sea view and a balcony but we were lucky to be looking for a suite and willing to spend a considerable amount of money for greek standards. The cons first. The suite was not as big as it should, the beds were mediocre and the bathroom was too small and weirdly shaped. But it was perfectly clean, it had two balconies with the amazing view of the venecian port and room service was prompt in whatever we asked. The hotel is located in most probably the best square to stay in Chania if you'll be wandering around the old part of town, minutes of walk away from everything. The hotel staff is courteous and very helpful, they even had some cool recommendations on where to eat and where to get drinks. Overall, our stay was pleasant and the price of the suite, although not a bargain, was reasonable. Thumbs up!

Visited Chania last year for business trip and chose Porto Veneziano because I read the reviews and viewed the relative photos. It seemed lovely and it was indeed lovely. Located in the heart of Chania's old port and within walking distance of Chania's centre, the hotel is really a fantastic place to stay when in Chania. Super clean rooms, quiet and relaxing atmosphere and very polite staff. Not great balconies though. But it had great breakfast and the whole atmosphere was very positive. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Try to get the front view rooms since they look at the port while the back rooms have no view at all

I have read the other reviews and agree completely about the wonderful location but.there were some deficits which mean i would not recomend this hotel especially for a longer stay..We only stayed for 2 nights.
They have 2 floors for smokers,5 floors altogether, which means that you have a high chance of being allocated one of these. Fortunately we had opted for nonsmoking but we could not opt for a seaview due to this as we would find it so unpleasant.However we liked the balcony and the partial seaview
The bed was another hard slab and even my husband found it uncomfortable! The bathroom was basic and the breakfast uninspiring but adequate. The airconditioning was necessary and worked.
It is easy to walk around the town from here and the tavernas at this end of town are less touristy.
We were glad that we had not booked longer although sorry to leave the town itself. Ihad a regret that we had not found somewhere more memorable

Room Tip: specify smoking or nonsmoking when you book

• I had a rental car with no GPS and it was extremely difficult to find this hotel. I had to park and walk around the town until I could locate it on foot. When I got to reception (by foot), hot, tired & frustrated, I checked in and told them that I needed help driving the rental car closer. The reception staff merely pulled out a map and pointed out the closest parking lot, which did not help at all. I guess I was hoping that someone would come with me and help me find a closer parking spot. But anyways, when I finally parked, about 3 blocks away, I had to drag my suitcase through the streets to get back to the hotel. Extremely frustrating.
• Location Location Location. This hotel is located in the Old Town right on the water. Very convenient. Makes it very easy to stay out for a later night.
• Small room but has a balcony.
• Pay per item Mini bar in room.
• Mini Market is about two blocks away.
• Shower is very small. About 3x3.
• Breakfast is OK. Not much for hot food. But there is a machine that squeezes fresh orange juice.
• Free Wi-fi.
• The bed is comprised of two twin beds pushed together.
• Reception staff is not very friendly.
