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

We've stayed at Nostos several times. The hotel is very charming and has an excellent location, right on the old harbor. The staff is very friendly and breakfast is nice, we usually eat breakfast at the little tables right outside the door. Another plus is the hotel is 2 doors down from one of the finest restaurants in Chania-Tamam. Try... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was overlooking the port, beautiful view. Hotel is a little hard to find and not accessible by car. Our room had a loft which made it quite spacious for 2 adults and 2 kids. The bathroom was very small and the plumbing wasn't very good. Overall nice hotel in great location.

This is a really nice airy hotel. The hosts are genuinely good people. The breakfast was fabulolous with the best fresh orange juice ever and creamy greek yogurt. The room is clean. The balcony is in the center of old town right on the water with a really nice rooftop garden. This was a very nice room to wake up... More

We were charmed by this ancient hotel with rooms with a balcony overlooking the harbor. We climbed up windy stairs to get to our third story room. The Breakfast was delicious. The owner was very friendly and helpful, telling us about back in the day when the Zorba movie was filmed in town. A movie was also being filmed when... More

Every time I walked past Hotel Nostos on the charmingly busy street behind the harbour I wondered if the hotel was as charming as the beautifully simple vase on the table outside its breakfast room. It was. Simple, clean rather charming rooms in pinewood and stone - and a small breakfast room leading out onto the street that made getting... More

Have been there in April 2013. Great location and nice service. Authentic and really charming. Most of the rooms have a beautiful view over the old harbour of Chania. Rooms are nice. Service is nice. Terrace for breakfast is fantastic. The owner of this little hotel is very helpful and kind. I would happily go back tomorrow ....

I'be traveled a lot and I have to start by saying that this was one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. Antiques everywhere in elegantly renovated rooms that show great attention to detail. There was a cute rooftop garden with a grape arbor. Would be great for couples. Breakfast was excellent and served with fresh squeezed orange... More

If you want the view of the harbor you'll pay the price, and not a monetary one either... we did; and we would do it again. We stayed in room 1 with a balcony & view of the old Venetian harbor . All three nights the noise went well into the wee hours, like 3 - 4 in the morning.... More

My husband and I went on a tour of Crete last August! Our first stop was Chania and we stayed at Hotel Nostos. Do not expect anything fancy.. The hotel is an old home, full of charm, converted to a hotel, but the location could not be any better! Nostos is situated right on the old, Venetian Port of Chania... More
