From the fist time you feel like your home. also in the refrigerator was a small bottle of local alcohol. The girl in reception is very... More

We stayed in a bedroom for three and it was really nice and spacious! The location is great and quite local compared to the old Venetian area nearby, which we found a little too touristy. The owners daughter spoke fluent English and recommended us to lots of great restaurants and also helped us to book really good tours to Samaria... More

We only stayed for one night but would have happily stayed more. The owners daughter greeted us warmly and spoke excellent English. She showed us to our room which she had upgraded due to a cancellation. It was lovely, spread over 3 floors and was tastefully furnished with its own balcony. The location was a short stroll from the beautiful... More

A nice place, a good location and a nice welcome. The rooms, in a rustic style, are fine and cold, but there's no AC in the common areas so, enjoying them is not an option. As there 's no permanent staff, you don't always get support when needed. Located by a bars area, in summer can be noisy.

My wife and I had a nice stay an Ontas hotel. The room was spacious, and in a good location (walking distance from the harbor, but far enough away to not be too busy). The manager was super helpful, she was very knowledgeable about the best places in Hania, and also with good tips for beaches farther afield. The accommodations... More

I think that Ontas is comfortably situated in Chania. Next to the Venetian Harbour of Chania and Old Town. At the same time, it's very close to the parking site of Anatoliki Tafros, that is reaaaaaaally important for Chania town. From the first moment you feel the "family" spirit of Ontas, as there are only 4-5 rooms. They are tradionally... More

Ontas Traditional Hotel is a very beautiful refurbished place. Only a few minutes walk from the main attractions in Chania. Our hostess, Philia, was the kindest person ever! She helped us a lot finding nice places to eat or find beautiful beaches in the neighborhood. It is really nice to be able to take the breakfast in the small kitchen,... More

Situated in a very interesting area of Chania, Ontas hotel is a charming traditional hotel, not very far from the Venetian harbour and Splantzia square. Ideal for exploring Chania and make some excursions of the Crete island. My room, with a small balcony, was very spacious and clean, with a small fridge and Wi Fi connection all the time. You...
