“Perfect Location and much more”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Just got back from Chania with the week booked in the Danaos. I can verify everything that has been written before.The hotel is in the perfect location, a short walk to Old town Chania with the beach just across a quite one way road.The beach is beautiful sand with a fairly safe Sea. If you like snorkeling then there are some rocks nearby to look out for some friendly fish. Sunbeds were the hotels and 5 euro for 2 and a shade, good value.We asked for Room 34 which was an earlier tip and were duly obliged. The room was on the 3rd floor at the front so with a great Sea view. It was at the end so a little quieter. Bed was but hard but we got to sleep ok. The rest of the room was fine with a couple of chairs and table out on the balcony. No English TV but a good wifi connection. Staff were always very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was good, continental as were most of the clientele of the hotel during our stay. We used the Akrogiali Taverna next door a couple of times for lunch and once for dinner.That was very good value.Our best evening meal was at Tamam restaurant in old Chania town. The hotel is fairly easy to find or at least the beach road is and once you're there there plenty of parking on the road.

Room Tip: Room 34 had a sea view and is at the end so a little quieter

Reading the other reviews, it looks like they said it all: 10 mins walk from the old city and only a small road to cross to be on the beach. The rooms are simple and very clean, nothing fancy, but perfectly fine if you're going to be out most of the day. Internet works well and the staff are fantastic. It's a reasonable price hotel, next time I'll stay longer.

Room Tip: Ask for the sea view rooms

My favorite hotel in Crete. Hotel is just a 10 minute walk from historical Chania and right on the beach. Staff are insanely sweet. They upgraded my room from a double to a quadruple. When I went to hike the Samaria Gorge a staff member made me breakfast and coffee and made sure I made my bus. Who else would do that??

I booked through Trip Advisor searching for a *** hotel in Chania with high ratings. So I found Danaos.

Asked a few questions by mail and got immediate answers from Mette at the reception.

Got a quiet room with nice standard - TV and fridge - clean. Nice breakfast and outdoor cafe facing the beach walk.

VALUE FOR MONEY!

Room Tip: Nice view on the beach side. Quiet rooms on the backside.

We spent in the Danaos hotel 9 nights. Everything was good. The receptionist guy which is there during the late shift, explained us how to prepare the real greek tzatsiki. You can find some entertainment in the hotel (balls, rackets, some swimming equipment, etc.) and small library for free. Also you don't need to take care about beach towels- you can take and change them at the reception any time. Working staff is very friendly and reliable. It is possible to find all needed information and the best excursions with help of the reception lady. And the best thing is probably to wake up with the sea really close (50m ).

Brilliantly situated for the beach. Hotel was clean and tidy with fresh towels and bedding.
Our room overlooked the side, so not an ideal view!
Breakfast was continental, not to my preference but just ok. Ideal as a base for a beach holiday.

As we stayed last year we wanted to be close to the beach as possible.Rooms are basic but clean and you are walking distance from old Harbour , restorans and shops.Ideal location,close to the beach ...Take a room with balcony and enjoy the view.
