This B&B is located right along the bay (main area in Chania). In the morning, it's a beautiful location to sit and eat breakfast and at night you're close to everything you want to see. The inside of the hotel is also very pretty and homey. When there's no construction on the museum next door you have a pretty good... More

We stayed here in January just before this inn closed for the season. When we made our reservation we had no idea (and they did not reveal) that they were closing the next day. The hotel was nearly empty and spooky. The winter storm winds ripped at the shutters, slamming them against the windows with tremendous force and sounds. This... More

This is a hotel that provided one of the best services I have experienced in traveling in many areas around the Mediterranean. Both receptionists, especially Eva, made the guests feel very welcomed. The advices and service they offer are always of great value. The breakfast is truly amazing. Everything is made to order and fresh and locally made. The room... More

We had a room with a great view of the lighthouse in the port of Chania Town. They made great restaurant recommendations for us, told us about some... More

This is a great hotel located within the Venetian castle outer walls. The room that we used had a view across the castle to the sea. It had a large King-sized bed in a rather tight room but a very spacious bathroom. A few of the other rooms. Looked directly to the Venetian Harbour. Eva who looked after U.S. During... More

I enjoyed 5 nights @ Arcanea. The location is perfect, near the Maritime Museum and with excellent views. The staff was very, very friendly and helpful. When I made a mess of arranging my flights, they helped me fix it. They arranged a taxi for me for a very early pick up. They gave me excellent recommendations for events and... More

I can not say enough good things about this place!! It was our favorite place to stay on our honeymoon and we stayed at hotels on three different islands and in Athens. Not sure where even to start. They knew it was our honeymoon so they had the room decorated with rose petals and a bottle of champagne with a... More

Amazing breakfast, great sleep and a romantic room. They really did their best to make my birthday special. The position is really good, in the city center but also very calm. Aria hotels are really something special.
