“Excellent stay in Porto Veneziano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room although a little small was compensated by the fabulous harbour views from our balcony. The beds were extremely comfortable, the bathroom clean and very well appointed with brilliant shower. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice to suit all tastes. We found the staff to be charming, friendly and very helpful. Special mention for Jorge the evening bar man who kept us entertained.

Had a great time in Chania. Stayed for 4 nights. Location was wonderful. Very clean and looked after hotel. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Short walk to the old town (5 mins) along the harbour so very pleasant. Don't hesitate to book this lovely hotel.

The hotel was very clean, although the rooms are bit small. It has a great location right near the Venetian Harbor (and easy access to the lighthouse across the harbor). The staff is very helpful & knowledgeable, and we found their recommendations on point. We found the breakfast adequate.

The only downside is the distance from the beaches. The closest is about a 20 minute walk from the hotel, and it is small before getting too rocky again.

However, we would recommend this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

We stayed 2 nights in March. Finding the hotel by car was challenging (we did NOT have GPS), but once there the location was wonderful. We had a room at the back and it was tiny, but clean and comfortable. The bed is on a platform so there is a step up to get in, then it is like a mattress on the floor. There is no counter space in the bathroom so it's a bit tricky to store and use your personal care items. There is a balcony with a small table and chairs, but it is shared with the room next door. It rained quite a bit during our stay, so we didn't use the balcony, but there is a view of the sea from it. There were bikes and umbrellas available in the lobby. The breakfast buffet was large and delicious. The fresh squeezed orange juice was a real treat! The seafood restaurant recommended by the front desk was quite good. We found the people of Chania to be friendly and the town itself charming. Would recommend.

Porto Veneziano Hotel has a good location at one end of the old town harbour. There are lots of restaurants nearby, and the shops and services are a short walk away.

The hotel has been recently renovated, so the rooms look modern and clean. There is all the normal furniture and decoration in a neutral style. The advantages of the room are free minibar and safe and a balcony. After reading the descriptions about "soundproof" doors on the hotel website I was slightly surprised to hear discussions in the neighbouring room and in the corridor. In any case, the hotel was relatively quiet.

What I liked most were the really friendly staff and good breakfast buffet: fresh orange juice, local specialties from pastries and cheeses to herbal teas, delicious Greek yoghurt with honey and confitures were a good start for a day.

Room Tip: View to the sea is really beautiful, so it might be worth some extra euros.

It's a really lovely hotel. The rooms are recently refurbished, a little small, but you only sleep in them! Staff are very friendly and efficient, and the area at the end of the harbour is so well provided with restaurants, you can eat in a different one every night. Highly recommended.
