“Perfect Self Catering Accomodation With An Amazing Host!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

We loved this apartment. It was only minutes walk away from the town and beach but far enough away to avoid any noise from the bars. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had excellent Wifi coverage. The host was very friendly, kind, informative and helpful. There's free parking on the main street bang next to the beach and the apartment is literally a 1 minute walk away from your car. There's also a supermarket and bakers located 3 minutes walk away . Paleochora itself is a nice resort., the scenery is stunning and it's a perfect base for walking. It's unspoilt like many beach resorts but it was extremely busy when we went and overun with familes and children (we did go in July!). I would imagine out of season it's absolutely perfect. We would most likely visit again and if we did we'd stay here again!

Room Tip: I would imagine the rooms on the top floor have amazing views.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is perfect because you have eay access by car, easy parking but also you can walk everywhere in the center of Chania in a few minutes. Nice and helpful stuff.

Room Tip: Nice breakfast

The location is excellent, few minutes walk to old town and harbour. Clean rooms but with a small bathroom. Free wifi, good quality everywhere. Decent breakfast, a little bit expensive. Family owned/operated business. Friendly polite staff. Recommended if you are not gonna spend too much time in the hotel.

We stayed second year in raw in the same room,everything was fine like last year,we totally recomended, especially if you have a car because it is just 5 min walk from the old port but it has public parking nearby.

Room Tip: 2nd floor has better sea view than the 1st

We stayed 2 nights and it was ok for what we needed it for. It is located fairly close to the main tourist attractions (port, museums, shopping) and you can see the water from the balcony as it is only a block away. It was relaxing to hear the sound of the waves from the hotel room.

However, we did book the budget room originally, but when we got there we were told it wasn't ready and that we could have a room upstairs that was ready, for an extra 7 euros/night, or wait. As we were there very early for check in, and the "budget room" did not look very appealing, we didn't mind paying extra to get a better room right away. So be aware that the budget room is misleading.

Another downside to the hotel was that it smelled like smoke, and we found ashes in the drawer beside the bed... the room seemed fairly clean otherwise.

Very clean, but small bathrooms. Very budget friendly. Air conditioning. The neighborhood is difficult to park in, but other than that, fine. It's a close walk to the inner harbor, and the owners have great recommendations for restaurants and beaches.
The beds aren't that comfortable, but you will be hard-pressed to find a comfortable bed in the entire country.

Room Tip: Ask for a tip on the top floor, they are quietest.

Fantastic hotel experience as the owner and his son, Chris, provided me with very accurate and helpful information on how to enjoy Chania and Crete. The overall service was warm and friendly as the hotel staff would often take the extra effort to ensure my vacation was going very well.
The rooms were excellent as they were spacious, clean and modern with excellent flat screen TV and the best free Wi fi service experienced in Crete. Located 100 metres from beach, entrance into Old Town and many cafes and bars with a beautiful view of the sea! Plenty of parking available if you are driving and slept very well with the comfortable beds and quiet room.
Would highly recommend to all travellers and will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Crete!
