The hotel is lovely and Ioannis a great host. Our room was cozy and comfortable but didn't have a view, in fact it didn't get much natural light. If possible ask for one of the wonderful rooms overlooking the harbour.

Stayed in a room with balcony overlooking the harbour - lovely to sit and watch the world go by. Clean, light, and airy. Lovely reception and breakfast area; you can also sit outside in the alleyway for breakfast. A nice rooftop terrace also. Yiannis and his staff are very helpful and friendly.

Brilliant Hotel, splendid location and lovely staff, very friendly and always pleased to help. In the heart of the Old Town, just one block back from the Old Venetian Harbour down a very attractive pedestrian street, with numerous good tavernas within 500 yards. Top-class hospitality, and a really lovely stay. The hotel features a lovely rooftop terrace garden. Very restful... More

The room I've booked wasn't available at my arrival they give me a double instead of studio double which doesn't have the kitchen. They told me I've to mention by email (so replace the order i did on Cosmores ????????). In addition, I ask them time to decide if I stay or not and they agreed. Few minutes later, when... More

This was a great hotel, very close to the old harbour which you could easily view from the rooftop terrace. The location was perfect, right in the old town near to some quality tavernas and bars and just seconds from the venetian waterfront. The owner was a terrific guy, the decor and room was fantastic and breakfast worth the extra... More

I really loved the Nostos Hotel. It is right in the heart of the action around the old harbor and lighthouse in Chania. Down one of the small alleyways throughout the old city. The place has a great deal of character and the owner is a very nice man. Breakfast is included and it was delicious! The rooms have a... More

Just had two nights here in a room overlooking the harbour. The room was beautifully decorated and had a useful fridge and a good small bathroom. The balcony was perfect for sitting out and watching the harbour in the early morning and especially at sunset. There is also a lovely roof terrace where we enjoyed a few drinks in the... More

We stayed just one night on our way home from the west. The hotel is charming with a fantastic roof terrace with views of the lighthouse. We had a family room which was at the back. It was large and well appointed. Staff were friendly and the breakfast adequate. If you book make sure you ask for a room at... More

If you want lots of activity go to the water front. If you want sterile perfection go pay triple the price. This apartment comes with a kitchenette. When we tried to use the stove the fuse blew. The shower was small but a lot are in Crete. What you get is a friendly staff that will help you with phone... More
