If you're looking for somewhere cheap, this is the place! The owner Georgia was so kind and hospitable. Her mother, who does not speak English, insisted on carrying my overpacked, heavy suitcase up 2 flights of stairs even after I insisted she didn't. My sister and I stayed in the "girl" room, which had an ensuite bathroom. Located on the... More

When you stay at Smaragdi Studios in Old Town Chania, you feel like you're part of a quaint, friendly neighborhood. The street has small markets, cafes and friendly people. Georgia was not there but a neighbor, Yianny, welcomed me and made sure I had what I needed. He told me the next day that Georgia had just had a baby... More

In our opinion Smaragdi location is the best you can find in Chania: narrow, charming old street close to the old harbour. If you have the car park in Talo Square. Georgia is professional and helpful for everything. The room we had was on the backside, cosy and colorful. we had breakfast in the cafe in front of smaragdi, we... More

We have spent 3 nights there in April. First all the good things: the owners are super nice, we were in touch long before arrival, got good directions on how to get there and were welcomed nicely upon arrival at night. On the last day we were able to stay in the room until 5 p.m. so we could refresh... More

The room was small but had everything you could need and the welcome was friendly and helpful. The en-suite room we had was on the second floor accessed by rather steep stairs so probably would not be suit anyone with a disability. A good central location for a short stay and we would use again.

Centrally placed in old, charming Chania, in a well restored and charming area with all you need just a minute away. Clean and neat, no reception, but very helpful Georgia on phone anytime. Well functioning air condition, fridge, kitchenette or coffemaker in each of the few rooms. Got a lot information from Georgia on mail before we left, she is... More

Georgia, the proprietor, is simply amazing. We were greeted with a map showing us what to do around Crete, and she answered each question as if we were the first guests she ever had. When we mentioned that we really liked the curtains in our room, she offered to go to the shop and pick them up for us, and... More
