Reviewed 30 April 2013

This is one of the best hotels we've stayed in in Greece. The staff are lovely, the room was very well appointed with one of the best beds we've ever slept in (CocoMat - a name to look out for!), the free wifi was fine, the welcome was great, the location is excellent - 30 seconds from the harbour but far enough away to be quieter. Treat yourself: you won't regret it - and it's not even expensive! Pillows are soft and towels are fluffy, too...

I spend one night in april in this hotel. It is one of the best hotels I ever stayed in, incredibly located in the middle of the old town 20 meters away from the old venetian harbour. It could hardly be better. It is a self-catering hotel with kitchenette, but there are a lot of restaurants nearby (medium priced).
The hotel rooms are sufficiently large, lovely decorated, spotless clean and quiet. The beds are very comfortable, the bath is furnished nicely in a modern style. Furthermore, the hotel offers a sun terrace overlooking some parts of the old town and the harbour. If you turn west, you will also find a small beach.

Due to the fantastic location, it is not possible to reach the hotel by car. But there are free and open parking lots directly at the seafront near the street "Theotokopoulou". From there you only have to walk for about 4 minutes to the hotel. You reach the airport in about 25 minutes by car.

I am very glad having found this lovely hotel. If possible, I will stay there again during my next trip to Chania.

We stayed in this hotel in April and enjoyed every minute of our visit. The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the old town which meant we could readily access the historic harbour and the numerous winding lanes. It was like stepping back into a long gone era. However the hotel has been recently renovated and has all the comforts expected of a modern hotel. Everything has been done to a very high standard - the furnishings and the bed linen are of top quality. The owners were very helpful and had some useful suggestions to enhance our visit. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at Palazzo Duca in April 2013. It is located in the very heart of the lovely old town of Chania. Palazzo Duca is impeccably kept and recently renovated and as a matter of fact it is also expanding. Arriving can be a little trying but only because the tiny old city of Chania is a walking city with charming winding, curvy alleys lined shops, restaurants and hotels. I The best thing to do is to park your rental car by the water, leave your bags in the car and follow the directions by foot.
The staff and the hotel owner are welcoming and very helpful. We stayed at a studio which was small pretty room with a kitchenette and impeccably clean. The bed was very comfortable with good linen and pillows ,and so were the cocomat slippers included with the room.

Room Tip: Park your car and leave your bags. Look for the hotel by foot.

Situated in the most pictureresque area of the Old town, and yet built in a way that protects the building from the noise. Very recently and very successfully renovated, it has 8 studios including fully equipped kitchenette so that you can prepare your own breakfast etc. Three kitche things that I needed where asked for and brought in five minutes...The room I stayed in is 302(reachable by an elegant elevator) on the third floor, and it includes an open air jacuzi in the private veranda (although not used due to the weather). On the same floor, an extra veranda overlooking at the port, shared with the second studio of the floor.
Impeccably clean and fully airconditioned.Linen changed and the studio cleaned, every day. Exceptionally good and very expensive cocomat bed and pillows. You are given your set of keys (the key of the external door included, in order to enter when consierge is closed).
Worth to try it.

Room Tip: Try room 302.

It was our first visit to Crete and we were a little sceptical about the standards of the hotels so opted to go for a four star hotel. This hotel is small but the rooms are large and beautifully designed. The hotel had been recently renovated and the bathroom and kitchenette were well equipped. The room itself was spacious and contained a flat screen TV, a large comfortable bed and had soft lighting. We went in December but the room was always warm and cosy. The hotel is located very close to the waterfront and within walking distance to nearby shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Some balconies face inward. Best to ask before booking for balcony with view.

This new hotel is very stylish and clean. It was walking distance to many bars/tavernas, restaurants and shopping. Our room was cleaned everyday and was the perfect size. We saw all the rooms, so if you have a family, there are also bigger rooms and a room with a jacuzzi. Every room had a kitchenette, the fridge was very useful. There was also a balcony with seating with a view of the water. The owner/manager, George was so helpful. We had a change of plans and, unfortunately, had to leave a day early and he took us to the airport at 5am. This kind of service is above and beyond!!! Anything we needed, we were accommodated with.....directions, dining suggestions, a hair dryer, etc. I can't say enough wonderful things about this hotel. The beds were also very comfortable and the price was surprisingly very competitive. I'm very picking about cleanliness and location and Palazzo Duca was top notch.
