Porto Veneziano Hotel
Ranked #5 of 111 Hotels in Chania Town
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 June 2014

The Porto Veneziano is indeed an excellent hotel in this part of the Old Venetian Harbour in Chania. From the minute I checked-in with my sons we were treated with very excellent service from the hotel staff. The triple room given to us was very spacious and it had a balcony looking out into the bay nearby. Sitting outside the room in the balcony in the afternoon was very pleasant with the cool breeze and sun shining all day. I was there at the end of May 2014 for five nites attending a conference nearby. The excellent spread of food during breakfast is beyond description and you really have to try the freshly squeezed orange juice.
The one thing that I enjoyed the most during my stay was to wake up early in the morning and take a walk along the old harbour front towards the Old Lighthouse. The minute I stepped out of the hotel door, it was like walking into a painting as the morning calm was not yet broken by the usual daytime crowd in the old harbour front of Chania.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to visitors looking for a great location with excellent service.

Room Tip: I was given a triple room for the three of us and it met my requirements. It faced the bay and nearb...

From the moment we stepped out of the taxi and into reception, we were treated like old friends returning. The hotel is very clean and air conditioned. The rooms are a good size with very comfortable mattress toppers on the beds. We had a sea view and this was beautiful. Sitting on the balcony watching a sun rise or sun set was superb. A mini bar is provided in the room and this is priced reasonably. A bar is situated on the ground floor and the staff are always on hand to bring out drinks to you. The ham and cheese toasty is worth a try also. Breakfast was a nice surprise... I was expecting a continental choice, which there was and it had a large variety of choice. There was however a hot choice of egg, bacon and sausage! The large freshly squeezed orange machine was also a bonus as this was the best fresh orange juice I have ever tasted. WIFI is provided throughout the hotel, but this does struggle to get up to the higher rooms. A few special mentions to staff that went that extra mile: Maria on reception ( very helpful ) George on the bar ( very knowledgeable ) and the lovely Eva ( hardworking girl always with a smile on her face ). Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will be back.

Room Tip: Get in quick and bag a sea view.

This was a perfect choice for us. The hotel was very comfortable. We loved being at the end of the old town on the harbor. We could see all the boats, the lighthouse & all the action below but it was not noisy at night.The breakfast buffet was diverse & yummy. But best of all they had a fresh squeezed orange juice machine. You could watch the whole oranges drop down & get squeezed. Divine freshness!

The staff was very friendly & helpful of giving directions & suggestions of where to visit & eat.

Don't miss a drive to Balos Beach. It is a bit of a challenge driving on the dirt road studded with lots of rocks & then the long hike down to the beach but it is worth it! For 6 euro you get 2 lounge chairs & an umbrella once you make the walk.

Room Tip: Loved being along the harbor but without all the noise. Might want a third floor sea view room. Take...

I find to be a great location to visit Chania because in the front you have the harbour, on the left the shopping boutiques, on the right you walk to the boatlight and in the back you have the Belvedère and the public beach with little café.I have to say that the lady welcome us very nicely, obviously , and with reason our room was not ready, and we undertand it was to early. So she offered us the breakfast wich was really nice of her, and we said ok because tomorrow we are leaving early, then they offered us a continental breakfast to go the next day, wich we decline but it was really appreciate.As for the room, it was small but its the European way and it those not bother us.We did foud `spots¨ of dirt on the floor and the bathroom shower, well be carefull because the water comes out.The man at the bar help me with our plane reservation and everyone there were really nice to us.

We came to porto veneziano for our honeymoon. However the hotel manager "managed" to ruin our stay by simply shouting at my husband and scolding us for parking our car in the wrong spot. If you want to be scolded and shouted at please be my guest and stay here. He refused to apologize for his rude and unacceptable behaviour. The reception staff continued to defend this horrible "man". Their rudeness and lack of hospitality will ruin your stay in the old town. Do not stay here!!!

Booked by chance for a business trip to MAICh just outside Chania, this hotel was quite a find!
On the harbour front about 3m from the waters edge, watching the fishing boats from the breakfast table was delightful.
We had a 'Economy' room but it was very comfortable with a balcony - views not brilliant but very much ok.
The bed was 'Japanese' which was a bit odd - it meant it had the mattress on a raised platform which made getting in and out a bit difficult especially for those of us who are on the tall side?
Breakfast was good and very varied and very Greek. Check out the orange juice machine - crushing the oranges in front of you.
On the 'down' side - the parking was a nightmare and if you don't need a car during your stay, get a taxi. However the surrounding countryside is wonderful and should be explored.
All in all, I'll be back again - Chania is delightful and so was this hotel.
