This hotel was a revelation - feels more like a 4 or 5 star than 3. We were upgraded to a harbour view room and for that alone I give them a good review, otherwise everything was fresh, new, tastefully decorated etc. Breakfast was great. Views excellent. Position is great, 5 mins away from all the hustle and bustle and... More

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at this hotel and from our experience it absolutely ticked all the boxes. We decided to take one of the Junior Suites as many of the previous reviews had commented on the small size of the standard rooms and we were so pleased we did. The view from our room was... More

Marvellous hotel right on the waterfront in one of the loveliest harbours in Greece. Small, modest, but perfect for a budget traveller. What I loved was that they have bicycles you can borrow. I did just that, and rode all over the city for a couple of hours on my first day, which was a brilliant way to get the... More

This hotel is in a great location; right on the water in the harbor of Old Town, and a 5 minute walk to the center of town where all the restaurants and shops are located. It's worth the extra few dollars to upgrade to a sea view room. The double room is not very big, just enough space to walk... More

We were greeted, upon arrival, that both of our couples had been upgraded to a view room AND what a view it was! We looked right on the harbor and could not have asked for more. The staff at this hotel is amazing! Wonderful little bar right off of the reception area with a lovely breakfast room on the other... More

This hotel was good location near the harbor. A shower room was interested in a little dirty one. The breakfast was good.

Very nice clean and well equipped rooms. The staff was very polite and helpful. Breakfast was more than enough with fresh fruits and traditional local products. The only negative thing was our bed that the mattress (that was very comfortable) was on a step that was not easy to stand up from the mattress in the sides. On departure there... More

I love this hotel! Great location on the old harbor. Restaurants, cafes and bars are all around. Ask the front desk for some recommendations. The room I got was right over the water. It was super modern and clean. It looks brand new. I really liked everything about it. I strongly recommend staying here.

I strongly believe that Porto Veneziano is the right place to stay in Chania. In the old town of the city,just next to the sea,overlooking the port, Porto Veneziano is blessing you with amazing pictures through out the day and night.The personnel of the hotel is very friendly and the rooms are clean and comfort.
