“Wonderful week”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

Location by the harbour is so relaxing to view. Close to the centre but still very quiet. The room was clean and the place is modern and looks freshly done. Breakfast is really good fresh orange juice and a big selection. Reasonable price with genuine helpful staff. Lovely Island the food is great wherever you go. Lots of typical white buildings and blue sea. Perfect holiday Island.

Stayed for a few nights in February. We had a sea view room, which I would suggest is essential. The rooms are not large, but were very comfortable and we had a lovely balcony and watched the sun going down over the harbour.

There is a free mini-bar, which is restocked each morning - an excellent touch.

The breakfasts are good, with a great selection of hot and cold food.

The staff are extremely friendly, offering excellent customer service in a professional but not over-bearing way. One of the main strengths of the hotel.

They have a small car park which we used. In summer it might be a bit busy, and so you might have to pay to park in the public car park opposite.

The location is ideal, just a short walk from the venetian harbour, close to many restaurants.

Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Sea view on a high floor is a must

In this hotel the combination of a beautiful boutique hotel and warm local service is fantastic! The rooms are beautiful and most offer scenic view to the local port. The service is great, really welcoming and warm. Definitely recommended!

Maybe the best choice for a few days in Chania: close to the center, on the quiet site of the front harbor, next to a variety of some of the best restaurants and coffe shops in town, remodeled in a very modern way recently, excellent staff, reasonable rates.
Breakfast buffet inludes freshly squeezed orange juice, a varaiety of eggs, cheese etc as well as local specialties.

The only downside: small rooms. I had a room on the side street, not with harbor view, and it was "tiny".

This hotel is located at the eastern end of the harbour overlooking the marina and the sea. Our room had a balcony and a great view over the harbour and the pier right over to the lighthouse and naval museum. The hotel is bright and modern which suits us but if you want to stay in a (sometimes dark & dingy, otherwise very expensive), old venetian building then you will no doubt look elsewhere. Rooms were refurbished in 2013 and are clean and bright with modern bathrooms. The standard doubles are an adequate size rather than particularly large but that is par for the course in Greece. However, there is plenty of shelf space in the bedroom and bathroom and the mini bar is free. The king sized beds (Coco-Mat) were particularly comfortable. Location is the advantage here being central but at the quiet end of the harbour. We drove there so the car park at the back was very useful to us. The buffet breakfast offered a very wide choice of food, one the best we have ever experienced and hot drinks were served to you so no working out how to use a machine. Very pleasant staff in reception and elsewhere in the hotel. The rooms are not cheap but you get what you pay for usually and here they have the balance of location, comfort and price about right. We will definitely stay here on our next overnighter in Chania.

Room Tip: The rooms facing out over the harbour and the sea are clearly the best, though of course, you will h...

We had a high floor, seaview standard room with balcony, at off-season rate of 97.50 euros. Not cheap, but reasonable. The room was adequate.

The location of the hotel is away from the downtown area, hence quiet, but it is still an easy walk from the main bus station (15-20 minutes)

Front office and maid service was very good. Breakfast was excellent. Make sure you use the orange squeezing machine for fresh OJ. There are quite a few restaurants nearby.

Overall,nice place to stay.
