We had an enjoyable stay at this hotel. Location is right beachfront. The beach is decent, but can get crowded during high season as it's quite small. There are also plenty of restaurants in the area and a shop market nearby. As it was still low season for most travelers, the hotel, beach and restaurants in the area were relatively... More

I was born(lots of years ago), 200 yards away from this small paradise of a family-run hotel. Then it was the owners parents home, but now you get the best views from the front balconies in the whole of town. Beautiful and clean beach, warm sea and to top it all, everyone at the Hotel can't do enough to please... More

Great location right on Papanicoli beach and a leasurely 10 minute walk to the port and all the bars and restaurants. Note, if you hire a car, you cannot drive into the old town after 11am in Summer. Therefore staying in the port area can be difficult. But this location is the best solution. Ensure you book a room with... More

This is a no frills Hotel in the most excellent spot, directly in front of the sandy beaches of Chania. Deck chairs with brollies available, some with drinks service and food. Excellent swimming from early till late in a warm sea. Take snorkel and flippers and look for colourful fish! Delightful walk from Hotel to Town where you find many... More

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
