We stayed here 4 days and we found the owners very nice and helpful. There was a gorgeous terrace where you could have your breakfast and enjoy the best view of the old harbour. Rooms were clean and there is even a tiny kitchen connected to that terrace where you can make your food. We would go back there again.

Pension Theresa is a lovely old house in a picturesque setting close to Chania harbour. We stayed for 5 nights in Room 1, which has the best view but extraordinarily uncomfortable bed. The bed is a small double bed built in to a wall with a hard, lumpy mattress and pillows. If 2 people sleep in it, one will knock... More

Hotel is auto-run based on trust and shared responsibility. For exemple, you have an almost complete kitchen for you to make breakfast or any other meal at any other time of the day. You are given oranges to squeeze and fresh bread to slide as you want but of course keep in mind others. the rooms have a lot of... More

This is a very old-fashioned pension, one where you feel like you're in your grandmother's home. Lots of period photographs and works of art and furniture. Maria at the front desk is amazingly friendly and very helpful. The only catch is the great location which means that there's plenty of passerby and music throughout the night. If you are a... More

I stayed here about a month ago having also been to the hotel next door so quite familiar with the Chania Old Town area. Pension Theresa has a time worn, historic feel to it (originally Venetian then taken over by the Turks) and wonderful terrace on the top floor; it has most of the ingredients I look for for i.e...

Maria and her father, are super nice. The place is fun. Old fashion with lot's of character. Not fancy but nice and clean. The rooms get clean every day. Highly recommended, price, location and goodness.

The location of this place is perfect as it's only few steps from the old harbor, and it has a nice view from the communal terrace where you can make your own breakfast. However the rooms could do with a little remodeling and a deep clean. The bathroom was old and not very well kept, and the wifi was really... More

its all been said already - quirky, friendly, wonderful. breakfast on the roof terrace [fabulous view across harbour] is a real social occasion; not cordon blue or flashy waiters but do it yourself; but fresh wholemeal bread, bags of oranges to press your own juice. and it's impossible not to get into conversation with fellow guests. "i'm sorry, i don't... More

A friend recommended pension theresa and I wasn't disappointed. Everything about this place is like no other accommodation you will stay in during your time in Crete. Having said that it maybe like no other place you will ever stay in. This accommodation has a wonderfully bohemian history and you feel it the moment you walk through the door. The... More
