“Great location and view from the top floor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Located in the middle of the old town on a street without traffic. Last floor has only 2 rooms and great terace - try to book a room there. Free parkings are 5 and 10 minutes away. Do not book breakfast - it's better tohave breakfast in the nearest cafe in the morning.

Room Tip: Last floor has only 2 rooms and great terace. Book the nearest to the stairs - in the other one at n...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We needed a hotel in Chania for two nights at the end of a fortnight in Crete because we were flying out of Chania airport. We wanted to be in the midst of the Venetian old town, near the harbour and accessible by car just to drop off the luggage. El Greco appeared to fit all these requirements and so we booked on line.
It was easy to find by car and we were able to stop within 20 meters to drop off our suitcases. Free municipal parking was available within easy walking distance and we left the car there.
The hotel was in the ideal location for us; our room was rather basic but we didn't intend to spend much time there. The shower hose leaked like a sieve but the manager changed it for a new one asap. The room looked into the narrow, busy street below and there was a great view from the roof terrace if you want to see the harbour while sipping a cool beer.
Very friendly and helpful staff and an interesting breakfast in the street added to our enjoyment.
Interestingly, we had planned to drop off the hire car in Chania town as we didn't need it for the last two days; in the event, it was cheaper to keep the car and drop it off at the airport on departure thus paying an extra two days hire charge but avoiding a drop off charge for the town, and a taxi fare out to the airport. We hired from Greenways in Remythnon at 20 Euros a day all in.

Room Tip: The rooftop rooms look great but might be very hot in summer. Choose a street side room in any case...

Somehowe I made a mistake filling in our arrival date - the same day I made the reservation, meaning the next day - and even though I immediately got an email back asking what our time of arrival would be, I still not noticed my failure.
When we arrived the next day it took some time to figure things out but eventually everything was sorted out and they forgave me!

So, in two words: very helpful. But one advice: take the top room with sea view. It's great!

Room Tip: Take one of the two sea room views on the top floor.

Though the staff is very friendly and the location very good (old town)I can't say that we would go back or recommend this hotel. We requested double beds but nothing. We requested 2nd floor rooms but nothing again. The balcony of the room faced the wall and that was extremely depressing!Only good thing was the bakery across the street! I think this hotel needs improvement and renovating touch-ups.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a front balcony (there are only 4 or 6 i think)

Great location, clean & comfortable rooms, and a GREAT location make El Greco the place to say in Chania. I'm a Greek-American who's made many trips to Chania and have paid a great deal for a lot less. So glad to have found El Greco. I've even recommended it to a number of friends and family traveling to Chania, and they all also loved it.

If you do decide to stay here PLEASE do not stay in a ground floor room. We had an awful time in this hotel. The room is dark and dingy. The bathroom small. Crap towels. Rubbish pillows. But the worst thing was the noise from reception. The breakfast room was next to our room and we were awoken early both days. One night I had to ask the security guard to stop shouting into his phone as he'd woken us up!! So irritating. We asked to be moved and the receptionist said she'd try and move us the following day but blatantly didn't. The breakfast wasn't that great either. Really good location though.
