a place to be. Chania old city and Palazzo Duca. traditional but modern and hightech boutique hotel awaits to surprise you. not much talking. Simply perfect. Can't find a better balance of price and quality, perhaps in the whole continent. Don't look any further.!

We stayed a night and the place is absolutely perfect. It is just next to the ancient port, near all the touristic places and restaurants, thought it is very quiet and peacefull. The staff was very welcoming and nice, they did everything they could to make us feel home.

My wife and I stayed at Palazzo Duca for two nights after a week at Loutro. We had room 202 which has a balcony overlooking Duca street/lane. The room was great, well appointed, bed a bit on the soft side for me but comfy enough. Air conditioned and a reasonable size fridge and small kitchen. Sound insulation could perhaps be... More

We had two wonderful night at your 'palazzo' and everything was great! and having stayed in many hotels and smaller pansions, I'm pretty picky in general. The things I loved 1) lovely decorated rooms - old school but not too chic 2) very clean rooms, towels and sheets (very important!) 3) wonderful staff at reception who helps in different situations...

We stayed here only for two nights, but I wish I had booked it for the whole stay in Crete! Despite our short stay, George, the owner, went the extra mile for us. We arrived late at night and couldn't check in normally, but everything was arranged perfectly. George left a key for the room in a secret place :),... More

Considering the location of this hotel, we were expecting a tiny room with minimal amenities. When I first opened the door, my jaw dropped. I was met with a beautiful, spacious room with a large, comfy bed, a meals area, a kitchenette and a private courtyard fitted with a jacuzzi. The building is wonderfully restored, keeping the old venetian charm.... More

We spent our first night in Crete in Old Town Chania and we were pleasantly surprised by the kindness of the people, the beautiful renovation of the hotel and the cleanliness and meticulousness room. Our room overlooked a pedestrian road and a small view of the sea, in the morning the sun was bright and warm and perfect for sitting... More
