The owners of El Greco were very warm and welcoming. Our room was warm and cosy. 2 minutes to the harbour with lots of coffee shops and restaurants. A very good archaeological museum nearby and a folklore museum which is a must see. The silk embroidery is the work of an amazing lady. Ten to fifteen minutes by foot and... More

Chania around the bay has many side streets that are worth walking through. The east side of the bay along with the northeast side is the prettiest and El Greco is in the middle of the east side (close to the old castle). If you like taking pictures, the east side is a great place from which to get up... More

El Greco is a really sweet little hotel in the middle of Chania. I booked a single room and was expecting a small room at the back but was given a nice twin room on the front with a small balcony and views to the lovely street outside and the sea. Breakfast is continental but perfectly adequate. Staff were helpful... More

We were looking for a hotel near the city's center, but without the city pricing. After tons of research, we made our decision. Clean, simple and exactly where we wanted to be. Its a no frills hotel, but cozy and friendly beyond words. We were greeted by Kyria Anna with a warming welcome and treated like family the entire stay.... More

We stayed here for three nights and it was lovely. Right in the old town center of Chania and a three minute walk to the waterfront. The staff were friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast was great with a good selection of breads, fruit, cereals and more. The rooftop patio had beautiful views of the city. The only cons... More

We lost ourselves in the old cobbled streets of Chania trying to find El Greco but kindly were led there by a generous local. This set the stage for a delightful stay in Chania. El Greco is a popular hotel yet relaxed and friendly. We had a basic, neat room on the top floor with, even from our bathroom, wonderful... More
