Lovely hotel right on the harbour. Our room had a small balcony where we could sit and watch the activities in the harbour and all the people walking by. It was great. The room was lovely with a good bed and small shower room. But the one downside of the location was the night time noise of the people in... More

This is a historic hotel. The building dates back to the 1600's. Very simple but clean rooms. Bathrooms are small but the shower is hot. The staff is very nice, especially Sophia! The view though is the reason to stay at this hotel. Unbelievable view of the Harbor which we enjoyed from our balcony (get a balcony room). Price is... More

There are probably several hotels with great harbour views in Chania, so how to choose one? I hope to be back in Chania many times and would always choose this one. While the facilities, decoration, breakfast, etc were fine but not outstanding (it's not an expensive place) the service was 5* - from my first emails to the final farewell.... More

Fantastic welcome on arrival to this sweet little harbour side hotel. Sofia could not have more helpful and our room with a view was superb. Breakfast is served from the next door cafe and a real laugh due to waiter. Simple stuff but perfectly acceptable. Sleeping with the windows open onto the sea is lovely but a tad noisy. If... More

This Hotel, built in 1659, is located one street, back from the Venetian harbour front of Chania. The hotel has sea view rooms that are well worth booking as they offer a stunning view of the old Venetian lighthouse. All they rooms have character and are adequately furnished, providing all necessary services that one would need. Within 40 meters you... More

We stayed 7 nights in this hotel in April 2015. It is a joy to stay here. Staff are simply the best, most helpful and friendly and very welcoming. Our room overlooked the port and had a balcony - fantastic location with wonderful views. It was spotlessly clean. Right next door is Georges which is the best place in the... More

During my business trip to Chania, around midnight, I heard strange noises coming from the ceiling.Probably it was a mouse. The main problem was not the "mouse" but the reaction of the owner of the place. No one was at the reception and when I gave her a call in order to change my room, her reaction was that the... More

We had a wonderful stay at Porto Antico. Situated in the heart of the old Venetian Harbour with breathtaking views of the lighthouse. Room was just as beautiful as in the photos. Views from our room were to die for, just like a postcard only real life. Staff were amazing, very friendly & very hospitable. Highly recommend a stay here.... More
