Very practical location in the heart of the city, with easy access and parking, which is a necessity in Chania. Very polite staff, helpful and attentive. Room was cozy, clean and well equipped. Breakfast was very good, with good variety and taste. I absolutely recommend it

Close to the shopping, eateries and waterfront, very modern and clean in safe location. Parking wasn't a issue as found parks outside the hotel! Walking distance to everything - was a fantastic base for us girls!

I got both in full from my room and couldn't be more satisfied. Last year I was in Chania and stayed a different hotel not far from Samaria, a... More

There is nothing negative to say about the hotel, rooms, décor, style, breakfast, restaurant, service, staff all 5 stars. Exceptional bar staff, reception staff, concierge, who parked our... More

My husband our daughter a female friend & myself spent 10 marvellous days in this hotel in early September. The hotel was excellent for its location to the beautiful town of Chania. Breakfast was wonderful with plenty to choose from. There wasn't anything negative we could say about the holiday.

We stayed at the hotel for six nights in October. After reading other reviews we were worried about the outside noises but they weren't really too bad. Our room was clean and modern. The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was a good quality. The best orange juice I've ever had in a hotel!! We found the seating area... More
