Porto del Colombo Hotel
Ranked #40 of 111 Hotels in Chania Town
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 June 2005

Friendly reception. Breakfast room is nothing to write home about but the breakfast is - creamy yogurt with cherries or honey, fresh bread, cheese, cake, coffee, fresh orange juice. Don't stay here if you can't handle walking up lts of stairs, no lifts. Room was not big, but sufficient, with charcter. The view is a bit cut of from roofs in front, but we could see the water and building in main harbour area. Bathrrom and shower cubicle very small. Reception closes at 9:30pm.

The Hotel is located in the heart of Chania's old town, directly behind the harbour on a quiet street. The rooms are nice, well decorated, clean and spacious. The staff was helpful and the breakfast was good. Not many rooms have double beds, so request one when you book.

Whilst the location was superb,right in the heart of the old town,the room on the top floor was dingy.The receptionists were disinterested at best,rarely raising a smile,let alone a good morning.

We were there on our honeymoon and it was one of the reasons why this was so beautyfull.
The hotel itself is great, nice building, furniture, food (breakfast was more than good and enough!!) and staff. The girls at the reception were simply fantastic: nice and alwas ready to help you, always wearing a smile on their face.
It was simply GREAT!

In the heart of Chania's fascinating "old town," this hotel's unique, funky rooms are more than adequate but climbing the steep staircase to get to the top floors is a heart attack waiting to happen.

Stayed at the Hotel Poto De Colombo for 7 nights in Sept 2003. The reception staff were fantastic; extremely friendly and accommodating.
The hotel room itself was charming, with high ceiling and beautiful new tiled bathroom; but the cockroaches still loved to visit us.................The hotel has a fabulous location, just a few paces from the Venetian harbour and all it's amenities; restaurants, cafes, museums, shops etc. The only real disappointment for us in the Hotel Colombo was the breakfast; rolls with butter and jam, coffee and cake and orange juice for 7 days running was a bit tedious to say the least.
The only recommendation we would have would be to improve the area inside for those who wish to eat breakfast indoors and perhaps vary the choice somewhat; otherwise, the great hospitality at this hotel was what really made it enjoyable for us.

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
