Everything was excellent with this hotel apart the narrow underground parking. Great staff, location and room. We stayed 3 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I parked a 2015 Nissan Qashqai in the underground parking and had some difficulty taking it out since the ramp is extremely narrow and you need to fold the mirrors and be aware with the... More

We stayed there for a week and we found this hotel immaculate in every respect AND the friendly staff were exceptional. Sure, it's not beach side or even in the unique Old Town but it's proximity to all the main sights was very convenient. The bonus for us with our young child was the City Park immediately adjacent to the... More

I spent almost a week there with my mum and it was really great. The location is perfect if you want to visit La Chania (you can do everything by walk) and if you want to visit other cities and villages, the hotel is like 15 min drive away from the national road, which is really useful. Then the hotel... More

We found the location great, not wanting to be based in the old part of town but close enough to walk, Lovely hotel, clean rooms, pleasant professional staff, varied breakfast. Free underground parking adds a plus point.
