“First stay, hopefully not the last”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I have lived in and visited Crete many times, but this was my first time staying at Kydon. It is a very comfortable hotel in a great location, and the breakfast was really good. The staff was friendly and attentive. I would definitely consider staying here again whenever I want to stay in the center of Chania...really glad I found this place.

Room Tip: My room was across from the main market, and on a busy road. They've done a pretty good job of s...

We stayed her just for One night but this was a really impressive hotel, clean, polite and helpful reception staff, the room we stayed in was massive, looked great and a huge balcony, brilliant!
We paid about 85euros for the night, which is quite a lot but it's worth every penny. It's located about 5/10 mins from the Harbour, the Harbour was lovely, great food and really relaxed by the water in the evenings.
Would return for longer next time.

We spent 3 nights at the Kydon Hotel. The staff couldn't do enough for us especially helping with directions as we had a hire car. Nikos who is a waiter in the Restaurant was most helpful in advising us on places to visit. There was plenty of choices for breakfast and so good to have freshly squeezed orange juice each morning. Our room was comfortable and we had a balcony which overlooked the street and market place area. The bed was the most comfortable we have had in our 5 weeks of travel. The evening meal at their restaurant was of a high standard and large serves. The prices were better than some outside restaurants. We would highly recommend this hotel. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.

It is a clean and friendly hotel in the center of the city, next to everything. The traditional food market, the famous port, the shopping area, cafe and restaurants. A choice with Good value of money

Room Tip: The rooms facing the food market have the best view

I stayed in Kydon twice during the summer of 2013. The hotel was centrally located in town and the middle of daily activity. The staff was very accomodating and friendly. The room were simple, but clean and efficient. Close proximately to the port area and all the shops and restaurants. A great value. The breakfeast buffet was good and stocked often by attentive staff. The bar/lounge area was nice with a small but pleasant balcony over looking a major road and shopping district. A great value and good location between the touristy port area and local shopping district.

Room Tip: Both of the rooms I stayed in were towards the back of the hotel. There was a small amount of traffi...

If I ever visit Chania again I would definitely stay there . The place is spotless, very comfortable beds , great breakfast, very friendly but professional staff. The hotel is centrally located and just a few minutes from the harbor . We really enjoyed our stay !

Room Tip: Rooms with view of the old town are great.

Rooms are a bit small, but the rest of the rest of is great. Great food & amazingly friendly staff who cant do enough for you; Stavroula, Erifili & Irini deserve special mentions!

Cleaning rooms twice a day is really unheard of! I will be back...
