We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable, and had a character that suited the lovely town of Chania. This was one of the very few hotels I have stayed where it was quiet enough for a light sleeper like myself to get a great nights sleep. The bathroom was a little small, but everything worked and that's all you really need.
The location is ideal, right in the centre and only a couple of minutes away from most of the TA high rated restaurants, but it's on a quiet alley away from the main bustle. It's a bit of a trek if you're arriving by bus and decide to walk - it took us about 20 minutes with our cases - but it was worth it once you walk through the door into the room...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our Hotel, an imposing, tall, 600 year old building, has gathered a rich history over the passing of the centuries. During the days of Turkish Rule, the building housed members of high ranking Turkish military who made many changes to the buildings architecture - even built a Hamam.In the garden and next to that, a room to secure their slaves (where you can still see the metallic rings nailed to the walls). In the beginning of the 19th Century, the building was used as a French embassy and later was inhabited by the great Greek political figure, Eleftherios Venizelos, who also used it as his political offices until his move to Athens, when he took power as Prime Minister of Greece. The Hotel has 10 beautiful rooms - the 2 of which are maisonettes - fully restored and traditionally decorated to provide our guests with an especially warm and welcome feeling. All rooms have modern conveniences (WC, telephone, TV, mini-bar, air-conditioning and Central Heating in winter) ensuring our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. ... more less
