Dananos is a fantastic place to stay while in Hania. The hotel is 10 meters from a beautiful beach, and the people are very friendly and helpful. The price is also fantastic given the location. The hotel is about 15-20 minutes or so walking to the old Venetian Harbor. It is a bit removed from the chaos of downtown Hania,... More

We stayed at the Danaos for 4 nights (£40pn room only twin, booked through Booking.com). Despite having been to Chania several times before, we were previously unaware of Nea Chora beach, just a 10 minute walk from the town centre. Decided to give it a try & I’m glad we did. The Danaos is a typical family-owned basic 2/3 Star... More

The hotel is very clean and the staff are very helpful and friendly. En-suite very compact in room, but sea view from room wonderful, overlooking the beach. Value for money, will go again. Lovely walk into Chania.

We spent two nights here on a 5 day trip around Crete (not long enough by the way). We generally choose locations 10-15 minutes to the centres to avoid the constant noise of the busy centres, this was perfect. Right on the beach (wifi was even available from the sun lounges on the beach). Beach was calm and inviting. Room... More

Great price and hotel given proximity to Chania and it being a beach front property. We paid 45 euro with breakfast included. The room had a sea view room with two twins pushed to form one bed. View was beautiful and the sunset was gorgeous. Relatively quite given the room was right off the street. We did stay in May... More

Clean room, very nice and friendly staff, great view of the water, and close to everything without being in traffic central. The room and bathroom were snug, but well organized and more than I needed to enjoy the area. A large dorm style refrigerator was cold and the lobby was well stocked with various beverages and a little convenience store... More

The hotel itself is your typical Mediterranean hotel and is 10-15 mins walk from the centre. There are many good restaurants beside the hotel is you dont fancy a walk although the walk is beautiful along the harbour. Rooms were nice and simple but make sure you order a balcony with a sea view - this makes the room perfect.... More

Danaos was everything we needed, as we didn't spend any time in the hotel besides while sleeping. It was a short walk from the old town and right across from the beach. They helped us book an expedition to Samaria Gorge, and made us breakfast (at 5:30 am!). A note to the vegetarians out there...the breakfast had ham in it,... More
