This Hotel was booked last minute for an urgent business trip, I was a bit worried where I would end up as all Hotels were showing fully booked. What a gem it turned out to be. I arrived quite late but was met by Eiannis the owner and one of his daughters Eleni. A friendly greeting and a smile after... More

I stayed here for two weeks in late July while participating in an Erasmus summer school at TEI of Crete. There were 27 of us from all over Europe (I'm from UK) staying here and it was a delightful experience. As most have mentioned Helen was a very hospitable manager. While there, we enjoyed pretty much exclusive use of the... More

The hotel is very nicely located on the hills above the center of Chania, and not far from the airport, and easy to find when you come by car. Monte Vardia can be characterized as a place with fabulous service, Eleni and her colleagues really makes you feel as a special guest! They serve great breakfast including greek yogurt and... More

What a brilliant place to come and stay! Superbly clean and extremely friendly and accommodating staff. My husband was really rather poorly a couple of days and Helen was so caring and supportive- her and her mom even made him a special rice broth to help his stomach! I can't praise highly enough. We will definitely be back!

We chose the this hotel from the Trip Advisor reviews and we wanted a hotel with a pool as most in the centre of Chania do not have one. We were not disappointed! This is a family run traditional Greek hotel a few miles from the centre of town. You may want to hire a car to get about but... More

We had a fabulous week in Monte Vardia in June. We stayed in a family room with splendid views over Chania and the sea. Clean, comfortable rooms with excellent air con and cleaning service. No charge for WIFI which was available throughout the hotel. We had the pool to ourselves on many occasions during the week and enjoyed lovely freshly... More

I stayed with three friends in June 2013 and reviewed this hotel as wonderful. I visited with two new friends this year and they were as impressed as me. Again Eleni and her family were so kind and attentive. I consider Eleni to be a friend now and am almost hesitant to tell everyone how super this place is in... More

This is a small family owned hotel and you can feel the difference. The hotel may not be brand new but it is immaculately clean well maintained and extremely friendly. Breakfast is well presented and fresh. The pool area is relaxed and peaceful, while I write this review myself and my family are sharing the pool with only 4 other... More

We based out of Monte Vardia on our stay on Crete! Eleni and her family were very welcoming and helpful! The rooms were clean and roomy! The pool was clean and refreshing. Breakfast excellent, especially fresh yogurt with honey! We definitely will make this a regular stay!
