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

Just got back from Chania with the week booked in the Danaos. I can verify everything that has been written before.The hotel is in the perfect location, a short walk to Old town Chania with the beach just across a quite one way road.The beach is beautiful sand with a fairly safe Sea. If you like snorkeling then there are... More

Reading the other reviews, it looks like they said it all: 10 mins walk from the old city and only a small road to cross to be on the beach. The rooms are simple and very clean, nothing fancy, but perfectly fine if you're going to be out most of the day. Internet works well and the staff are fantastic.... More

My favorite hotel in Crete. Hotel is just a 10 minute walk from historical Chania and right on the beach. Staff are insanely sweet. They upgraded my room from a double to a quadruple. When I went to hike the Samaria Gorge a staff member made me breakfast and coffee and made sure I made my bus. Who else would... More

I booked through Trip Advisor searching for a *** hotel in Chania with high ratings. So I found Danaos. Asked a few questions by mail and got immediate answers from Mette at the reception. Got a quiet room with nice standard - TV and fridge - clean. Nice breakfast and outdoor cafe facing the beach walk. VALUE FOR MONEY!

We spent in the Danaos hotel 9 nights. Everything was good. The receptionist guy which is there during the late shift, explained us how to prepare the real greek tzatsiki. You can find some entertainment in the hotel (balls, rackets, some swimming equipment, etc.) and small library for free. Also you don't need to take care about beach towels- you... More

Brilliantly situated for the beach. Hotel was clean and tidy with fresh towels and bedding. Our room overlooked the side, so not an ideal view! Breakfast was continental, not to my preference but just ok. Ideal as a base for a beach holiday.

As we stayed last year we wanted to be close to the beach as possible.Rooms are basic but clean and you are walking distance from old Harbour , restorans and shops.Ideal location,close to the beach ...Take a room with balcony and enjoy the view.

We left our previous hotel a day early as we were let down by the quality. Turned up here off the cuff and paid 55 euros for a room for the night. Went up to our 3rd story room, had the most incredible view of the sea and the whole beach/bay. Lovely clean rooms, breakfast was great and included, very... More

Having stayed at the Danaos hotel last year, me and my partner decided to return again this year and I'm glad we did. The hotel is still as lovely as we remember it and after looking around I still stand by my decide of it being one of the best hotels in that area. The hotel has changed slightly since... More
