We had a large, very clean, spacious room on the fourth floor overlooking the Square, - perfect , you felt part of town life and you could see the sea form the... More

An excelent stay in this ideally located hotel, very close to the beautiful Venetian harbour and the historic old town. All staff from the owner onwards are multilingual and extremely courteous and helpful. Located about a 15- 20 minutes drive from Chania airport, the hotel is an excellent base for exploring historic Chania, western Crete and the Akrotiri peninsular. Great... More

Small bathrooms, with of course European style shower. Good breakfast selection. The hotel was in a good location close to the city center and a five minute walk to the old port. The hotel staff was very friendly but the hotel is fairly old as it appears that most hotels in Greece are.

This hotel may not be the best in town in terms of luxury, but it offers everything you need to be comfortable. It's not only located in the heart of chania town, but it also has the nicest people working there. They organized our trip to the Samaria Gorge and made sure we were well prepared - one of the...

This hotel proved to be a good choice for exploring Chania located at the top of the road leading to the old town and harbour. The room was a little small but perfectly adequate. Breakfast offered a good selection and the fresh orange juice was a bonus. The reception staff were all friendly and eager to help with enquiries.

The Arkadi hotel is conveniently located about a 3-4 minute walk from the main bus station and about a 5-7 minute walk to the old port area. The hotel has a nice reception area and a very friendly staff. Check-in was quick and easy. The room itself was clean and had what we were hoping for, a refrigerator, blow dryer,... More

Very good hotel with pleasant helpful staff, good breakfast, nice room, good value, well positioned just above main shopping drag leading down to beautiful Venetian Harbour with many good restaurants. Only minor reservation; like many hotels the breakfast coffee is mediocre...happy to stay there again...

Arrived on a late flight into Chania for an overnight stay. Very convenient location for bus station for airport bus and long distance buses-less than 5mins walk with cases. Also close to harbour. A very pleasant and helpful staff member checked us in. We were fortunate to be allocated room 501 with large balcony and great view. Refurbished bathroom, crisp... More

Location of Arkadi Hotel is excellent : close to the bus station and the old city. The breakfast is just okay if you stay only a few days (not too much variety), the nice thing is that you get one delicious fresh orange juice every morning. Excellent wifi connection in the room. Rooms and breakfast room are rather basic, but... More

So! Pros An amazing hotel for the value of money. Staff were very friendly Very Clean Amazing Breakfast Exactly in the city centre!!! Cons: A bit old Not the best view ( our room's view was horrible), but it doesnt matter cause you use the hotel to sleep only.
