My wife and I spent 3 nights here on a splendid trip through Greece, and I must echo the rest of the reviews here - this was just an outstanding stay.
This is an impeccably-done 3-story boutique hotel a very short walk from the Old Harbor in Chania Town. The location is excellent, right in the mix of good food and entertainment. We used this as a jumping off point to explore the island and also to enjoy Chania Town itself.
The hotel design/decor is really well done, and we are fairly picky in that respect. It was recently renovated and has a great blend of classic and contemporary - it is beautiful. The rooms are flawlessly clean, very well outfitted with high-end bedding, fridges, remote a/c, wifi, etc, and very nicely decorated (we saw two). Rooms were comparable to nicer four-star hotels in America.
The service was impeccable (in typical Greek fashion) and Maria (front desk) and George (owner) went far above and beyond to make sure our every need and want was met.
Room notes - we started on 2nd floor in a large apartment-style room, it had alley view but was very very nice, quiet, and spacious. George (of his own accord and kindness) moved us to a 3rd-floor street/sea view room with balcony that was equally excellent, and balanced a bit more towards cozy and romantic. For street view rooms, street noise is not an issue as the windows and doors are top-of-the-line (I mean.. custom, super expensive.. I know building materials and shudder to think at the price tag!) with thick double-paned glass and let very little noise through when closed up.
We stayed in a hotel in Santorini that we paid near double for, and both unanimously agreed that the Palazzo was much nicer, and by far our favorite. As far as location, service, quality of rooms, charm, and so on.. this hotel is a *steal* at the current rates - don't hesitate.
Thank you for a lovely stay George, and we hope to return one day!
