Our experience was not unlike Lam1001. We booked months in advanced and although they did have a room saved for us, because we arrived on a late flight from Athens, the room was not nice. It was around the corner and down an alley from the rest of the pension and it looked like a room they had been using... More

Unfortunately, our experience at Pension Nora wasn't as positive as some of the other reviews. We had booked months ago and confirmed our reservation with owner about a week before leaving home. When we arrived, the hotel was overbooked and we were moved to Kalliopi Rooms down the street instead. Our room was very small, the bathroom even smaller (the... More

We spent a great week this august at Natalie's Cretan House run by the same hosts as Pension Nora. Our upstairs studio apartment was delightful and cozy with its own little balcony where we spent many happy mornings watching the activity in the street below. Our kitchenette was fully kitted out with anything you could possibly need for cooking a... More

We were charmed by this place - felt like home all the time. We stayed there 9 nights. We had a room with king bed, a small kitchen, bathroom, balcony and we had our own roof were we spent some nights watching stars. It is very close to the beach - only 5-7 minutes walk to one and 10-15 to... More

Lovely pensione in the centre of town in what looks like an old Venetian building. Nice atmosphere, complete with creaky wooden stairs and blue doors and blinds. Clean and cozy. The Scottish lady (Nora?) is absolutely lovely, very friendly and helpful. Good value for money.

Pension Nora is in the perfect location - a short stroll to a sandy beach, a minute from the harbour, on the most picturesque, pedestrianised street, and surrounded by cafes, restaurants and shops. If you have a car, there is parking a minutes walk away. I had booked a single room and got a small double with a lovely view... More

We got what we expected. The pension was the same as we sow on the photos on TA. We reserved a room by mail and we paid on the last day of our stay. The owner gave us a room to take a rest till the other rooms are cleaned, and after that he said that we can choose from... More

We stayed at Pension Nora in May 2013. Normally we have stayed at the sister accommodation Natalies Rooms but that unit was booked for 5 weeks so this was our first visit to Nora. We were blown away by our room. It is actually a small Cretan house with a kitchen dining room combination on the first floor with the... More

I recently traveled around Greece with a friend from college. For our stay in Chania, we had originally booked a room at the Athinie Hotel, which turned out to be a complete nightmare. Long story short, the person we booked through was a crook and the people there had no record of our booking and were really rude to us.... More
