We arrived extremely late to Ionas due to a mechanical problem on our ferry from Santorini so the hotel reception was closed. Calling a number on the front door resulted in a very cheerful and accommodating woman coming within minutes to welcome us and show us our room. She said that these problems occur on the ferry and it was... More

We loved this thousand year old establishment! It had been renovated to meet all modern day needs with reminess of old character charms. It's is located right in the heart of old town near the Venetian port. The owner Maria was very kind to give us one night of free upgrade and provided us with a great restaurant recommendation.

The room was beautiful, and was very tastefully and thoughtfully decorated and furnished. It really felt luxurious, particularly the bathroom. I loved the glass sink. I was in a second floor room with a balcony. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - they recommended several great places to eat, and one day when I need to go out before... More

Well, checked in last minute around Greek Easter. Accommodating, though ground floor rooms small and noisy. toilet leaks. Staff lovely, though did not give us the correct discount for day with no breakfast. We left too early for airport. That was disappointing. Didn't realize till later when we read the room rates in the room. Willing to forgive lots considering... More

Booked this last minute and couldn't have been happier with my choice. The hotel had great character and the owner has out a lot of effort into making this a great place to stay. It's located in the old part of Chania down a pretty cobbled street and just a 5 minute walk from the harbour. Our room was spacious... More

This hotel was a disappointment but this may have to do only with room we were in (num 2). Despite the good reviews and the excellent location in the old town of Chania, the room we stayed was, well, a joke. (the room next to us looked even worse...) Pros: 1. Admittedly the staff was friendly and helpful. They were... More

At the centre of things in the old town, and interesting part, of Chania and yet set in a very peaceful location. The hotel is a very stylish conversion of an old Venetian house. It is small, with just 9 rooms, so you don't feel like just a number. The owners and staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast can... More
