Family business with all staff very helpful for all things. Restaurant recommendation was superb. Easy walk to the old town, and a handy swimming spot 150m down the road from the Hotel - just walk down the steps into the water. Stayed 10 days and would have been very happy to have stayed longer.

My third visit was a total disaster as the proprietor acted in the unfriendliest and most mean-spirited way possible simply because I had a cousin pop in for a quick shower before dinner as we'd been at the beach together. I tried to reason with the gentleman but all he cared about was the fact we used extra water for... More

Dear Sir, It is true that I have this hotel and I want money from my customers and I try the best for them and their staying to the hotel and the city of Chania.

The hotel is placed a few steps from the sea and a small beach surronded by local taverns. Despite of that the area is not noisy. The old town is located 15 min walk from the hotel. if you value a good night sleep don't choose anything in the old town. We were so glad we picked this area. The... More

We loved this apartment. It was only minutes walk away from the town and beach but far enough away to avoid any noise from the bars. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had excellent Wifi coverage. The host was very friendly, kind, informative and helpful. There's free parking on the main street bang next to the beach and the apartment... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is perfect because you have eay access by car, easy parking but also you can walk everywhere in the center of Chania in a few minutes. Nice and helpful stuff.

The location is excellent, few minutes walk to old town and harbour. Clean rooms but with a small bathroom. Free wifi, good quality everywhere. Decent breakfast, a little bit expensive. Family owned/operated business. Friendly polite staff. Recommended if you are not gonna spend too much time in the hotel.

We stayed 2 nights and it was ok for what we needed it for. It is located fairly close to the main tourist attractions (port, museums, shopping) and you can see the water from the balcony as it is only a block away. It was relaxing to hear the sound of the waves from the hotel room. However, we did... More

Very clean, but small bathrooms. Very budget friendly. Air conditioning. The neighborhood is difficult to park in, but other than that, fine. It's a close walk to the inner harbor, and the owners have great recommendations for restaurants and beaches. The beds aren't that comfortable, but you will be hard-pressed to find a comfortable bed in the entire country.

Fantastic hotel experience as the owner and his son, Chris, provided me with very accurate and helpful information on how to enjoy Chania and Crete. The overall service was warm and friendly as the hotel staff would often take the extra effort to ensure my vacation was going very well. The rooms were excellent as they were spacious, clean and...
