“So unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Started our week with 2 nights in Chania in the Case Leone, having booked the morning of our travels. Crete is fairly quiet at this time of year but we wanted something special with a good room rate in the old town. Right at the end of the harbour bay, the views are incredible (don't worry if you choose the standard rooms at the rear of the building as they're quiet, charming, spotless and you can use the main balcony anytime). Met by Nikos who offered coffee and cake on arrival as you sit and take in the view. Antonia in the morning is just lovely, making a healthy fresh breakfast whilst you can chat with the small number of fellow guests overlooking the old town (I think they have only 4/5 rooms so it's charmingly intimate). Can't recommend enough and it was such a lovely start to our touring holiday of Crete.

Charming is the perfect word to describe Casa Leone! My wife and I stayed here as part of our "trip of a lifetime" honeymoon and we're very glad we did. We stayed in some of the most amazing locations while in Greece, so there was much to live up to. Thankfully, we were not disappointed. It's been a couple months so I can't remember her name, but the lady that ran the front desk was super nice and helpful. The view of the harbor is picturesque, the breakfast was the best we had in Greece and the surrounding area is a blast with many good restaurants and activities.

Room Tip: Try and book the rooftop balcony room or a room with a balcony.

Casa Leone is a great little guest house with warm and enthusiastic staff. They were always happy to stop and have a chat and give us travel tips.

The location is fantastic, with a picturesque view of the old port from the balcony. We had a garden view room but were always welcomed to sit out on the balcony in the main area.

Our room looked recently renovated, with a good-sized bathroom, I mention this because it is hard to find a good-sized bathroom in Greece! My only criticism, and it is a small one is that there was some noise from the tavernas in the old port late into the night, it wasn't too bad though and I was always able to get to sleep.

I would definitely stay here again.

Such a charming hotel and very nice hospitality. Nikos the owner made us feel right at home. The room was such a delight. We had the room with a balcony and a view of the harbor. The breakfast was on the balcony and couldn't ask for a better way to start the day. Prime location with best view of the harbor!

We prefer to travel off-season, for it is then that the places reveal their inner character best. Even though many parts of Minoan Crete had become familiar before, Venetian Chania was a new acquaintance. And the hotel, lovely Casa Leone! It did not feel like a hotel, but like a tiny palace at the end of a maze of streets and with a view over the Mediterranean harbour. That is how it must have appeared to the 13th-century Venetians when they entered the Mediterranean base and looked out for the routes further to the eastern part. The hotel was an experience both harmonious and magical.The people there were delightful and with a lot of character - Maria, Nikos and Anna. Maria served delightful and very substantial breakfasts with Greek delicacies. Greek mythical tales came a tiny bit closer to us as we looked at the blue sea each morning.
