We went for the second time in this small condo, we were overall satisfaied but this time we couldn't enjoy the balcony because of other guests that even disturbed our sleep. I will come back for sure but the next time I will ask for a quiter apartment.

Pros: This hotel, close to one of the airports in Crete is a great place to stay for this who don't mind (or prefer!) being right outside all the hustle and bustle of the city centre. We booked a unit with 3 bedrooms - this unit also had 2 bathrooms and a living room with kitchenette which was great. The... More

Stayed here for just one night (our last night) as it is close to the airport. The rooms were massive (with separate living room and bedroom). Only downside is the ac was only in the bedroom, and we didn't have a balcony. The bed was so comfy! Yannis was very friendly and chatty.

We stayed at the Esplande apartments during a week long break to Crete. The apartments are located about 10-15mins from Chania airport and a further 10-15mins to Chania town. We were met by the great host, Yiannis, upon arrival and shown around our room. The rooms are basic, but well furnished, spacious and very clean – beds were comfortable, great... More

Located just 10km from Chania Airport Esplanade Hotel Apartments was a perfect place to start our Crete Adventure. Our flight was late in the evening so we were looking for a place located not far from the airport. Esplanade was our choice and it was a good one ! Yiannis is a great host which gave us a feel of...

A group of 6 of us stayed for 4 days in the three bedroom apartment. Yaniss went above and beyond in welcoming us, including flying the Canadian flag. It is basic accommodation, no elevator and no fancy furniture etc. but great value in a great location very accessible to Chania and to the national highway and the airport. A car... More

As other reviewers have said, Yiannis is a brilliant host - he met us from the airport and even stopped off at the supermarket so we could stock up on essentials on our way to the apartments. We stayed here for 7 nights in September and had a one bedroomed apartment with a small balcony overlooking the apartments next door... More

Yiannis is a fantastic host and goes out of his way we had an amazing holiday thank you and hope to be back. Full self catering facilities in room incl fridge etc. ideal if cooking for yourself and a supermarket nearby. There are only a couple of tavernas close by on the local beach and these can close early. Around... More

I found the Esplanade from Trip Advisor and really want to add my praise to the other reviews to encourage people experience this great place. We were expecting clean and basic, but the Esplanade delivers more than this, especially in the 3 double bed apartment we had. The rooms are spacious and airy each with a balcony and the 3... More
