“The only place to stay in Khania!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

The service provided by Nikos & Yannis is over the top!
Breakfast is a feast not to be missed. When others provide a continental breakfast or none at all, these two give you a range of options with generous portions and addional homemade goodies and fruit. They even leave fresh fruit in the rooms for guests to enjoy. They even made sandwiches for us to take to the Samaria Gorge.

La Splanzia is a small boutique hotel in a charmIng older building with 12' ceilings and newer versions of antique-style furniture that suit the rooms.

The hotel is located within minutes of everything you need in walking distance: a cafe 2 min away, a pharmacy across the street, the main market 5 min away, a supermarket 10 min away, the main bus station 15 min away and the port with all its shopping and restaurants only 7 min away.

La Splanzia is a great value for the price you pay, If I ever come back to Khania, I'm staying here.

I have stayed with my wife for 4 nights at Splanzia Hotel, Crete and i was really impressed with the hospitality of the family that runs the hotel. Nikos and Yiannis , the two guys that run the hotel , and their parents as well, had explained to us everything we wanted about Crete. They were very polite, pleasant and friendly making us feeling very nice.
Staying at Splanzia was a unique experience. The hotel serves the most delicious , fresh and amazing breakfast i have ever tasted. Travelling in many countries I realized that the breakfast at Splanzia is the best, not only for the quantity but for the quality as well. Breakfast is served and made on order every morning so everything is fresh and delicious. Crepes at Splanzia are the best I have ever eaten. The local specialties that are catered are excellent.
Rooms at Splanzia are very big and clean with all the comforts for a 4 star hotel.
The hotel is in an excellent location within a walking distance from the harbor. Walking for 2-3 minutes from the hotel you can find anything you want such as shops, cafes, restaurants etc.
I recommend this lovely family run hotel to everybody who want to visit Chania .
Yianni and Niko thank you very much for everything.

Room Tip: Both rooms either facing the road or the yard are excellent.

First of all let me just say that Nikos, Yiannis and their mom are AMAZING!!!! The friendliest Greeks i've met (and I'm Greek!). The hotel is a family run small hotel and if you dont book fast enough you will miss out on the best experience of your life. Very clean hotel, very good location within walking distance to the old port where the action is. We had rented a car and never used the parking lot across the street as there is plenty of free parking around the hotel area. The breakfast is catered to you and made on order every morning. The breakfast includes local delicacies and the best Greek yoghurt EVER!!!!!! and honey and local specialties..... Oh this hotel is just amazing! JUST BOOK IT and LOOK NO FURTHER!!!

Room Tip: pack light, there is no elevator

The Splanzia boutique hotel is a great place to stay.
It is situated in the less crowded (if there is such) part of Chania old city, easily accessible by car (with a charged parking lot just opposite if you don't mind adding another 10€ a day) and a few walking minutes from the harbor.
It has the most exquisite breakfast, every day something new and tasty, the best frappe we had in Crete, served in a shaded patio in the middle of the hotel.
The staff is very nice and attentive to guest needs.
All in all, a great place to stay.

We booked Hotel Splanzia after reading others reviews and we are glad we did. It is family run and The brothers Yiannis and Nikos are the most delightful,lovely,helpful and pleasant proprietors. This hotel is homely, has a really nice happy energy about it. The breakfast is absolutely amazing and made especially for you. They also serve the best bread in the whole entire world. The location is great, away from the excessively tourist area but within 5 minutes walk to the main area in the harbour and only a 1o minute walk from the bus station. We loved our stay in Chania and our stay at Hotel Splanzia certainly contributed to it.

We stayed here for 7 nights in May. The hotels position is good - in the old town, not far from anything, but easy to get to. Room was smallish but very clean and we shared a balcony with the room next door, which was nice for people watching on the street outside. Splanzias main claim to fame is its amazing breakfasts. Weather permitting breakfast is served in the outside courtyard, which is very pleasant. The first day we thought after cereal, cheese & spinach pastries, yogurt, honey and fresh crusty bread, that we had finished, only to be asked if we wanted bacon & egg or omellete? After that, were more sweet pastries. There were different goodies cooked up each morning - and it really got to be a bit much by the end of the week! I am still trying to work the kilos off.
