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 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

We have been there in June 2012.The pension located in Old Town is a beautifully decorated historical house a few minutes from the Old harbor .The moment you enter and climb the wooden blue steps you feel you are entering another century! We had a spacious room on the last floor decorated with an exquisite Cretan charm of its past... More

This was a very nice cheaper pension in the old town, we paid 35 euros / night in August. Cute little rooms, nicely decorated. AC and a fridge in the rooms. Bit of a problem with the plumbing though - toilet didn't flush very well. Cute old building. There are two shared terraces - there was a bit of competition... More

Well situated, in old Chania, in the wonderful street of Theotokopoulos (El Greco), close to the old harbour and to Neochora beach, the pension is located in a beautiful old house,... More

It has large sunny windows, wooden floors and high ceilings and has been decorated with woven Cretan rugs and traditional furniture.
