A fantastic hotel to spend a few days in Chania. Perfectly situated in the Old Town, 10 meters from the port and within walking distance of many good restaurants , with more than adequate rooms and a staff that helps you solve any questions or problems you have. Strongly recommended

We stayed here for one night at the end of August and the moment we saw our room we instantly regretted not staying for longer. We got the top floor room with an outdoor jacuzzi and it was so so lovely. We felt very at peace there and the room had a very calming effect for us. My only complaint... More

Indeed I was very surprised upon our arrival in the old port of Chania. It was so picturesque and pretty. The entire old town is car free so our taxi dropped us a little further from hotel than he should of but we found our way. There are many small hotels in town tucked away on the small streets and...

Great location - but the last step in the emailed instructions we received was wrong (told us to turn left, rather than right!). Actually, the easiest way to get there with suitcases is to follow the harbour. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast very good - rather than the vast buffet approach, they asked what you wanted (from a list)... More

I had the pleasure of spending 6 nights at Palazzo Duca and was very pleased with my stay. The room was very comfortable (room 102 - I was traveling solo and had plenty of space) and the small kitchenette and fridge came in very handy when I brought back extra snacks and drinks. It was quite hot during my visit... More

Another hotel that you can't reach by car, the penalty of wanting to be in the old town. Parking by the Fortress is a nightmare but, once parked and walked the 300 or so metres along the quayside to the Hotel your thinking changes! Palazzo Duca is set back a block from the quayside (about 50 metres) next to another... More

My husband and I had a fantastic stay at Palazzo Duca on our honeymoon for two nights. We booked the junior suite, which included a kitchenette, safe, desk, dresser, and our own balcony with a view of the sea. The kitchenette was well stocked, we were able to cook two meals. The room was clean upon arrival and the staff... More

What a position! Absolutely everything at your doorstep from shops and restaurants to foot spas and bars. The hotel is small (the way we like it) but the rooms are spacious even though our room was a "Junior Room". Very modern and the staff are very friendly/helpful. Loved being able to walk everywhere. It is set one very small block... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. The hotel is very small, with only eight rooms. We had a junior suite at the front of the building, with a balcony. We loved the location of the hotel. It's so close to so many good restaurants and the harbour. Unlike some others reviews, our water pressure was good, wifi connection... More

I stayed at the Palazzo Duca for one night with family. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, the rooms comfortable, air-con and wi fi were faultless. We had a 'junior suite' from whose balcony we overlooked the harbour, albeit one street back from the waterfront. We had a great stay, helped by the fact that the hotel is next... More
