We looked at the pictures online and were very excited to stay in this hotel. The actual room was nothing like the pictures though...The decoration was old and it even smelled "old", though clean enough.
The pool is tiny and old too but that wasn't as important as the room. It was way too expensive and a poor value for money. It's also difficult to park near. Maybe it's good for people on business trips, travellers with no car, winter time visitors or people who just want to be in the center and don't care about paying more for a barely decent room.
We've been visiting Chania for the past 3 years and have stayed in 5 different hotels, all cheaper and way nicer than this.
The upside is the breakfast, which was very nice and in good quality. The staff was also polite and helpful. But other than that, I wasn't satisfied with this hotel. The website and the professional photos are very misleading.
