I recently traveled from the US to Chania Greece to attend a wedding for a close friend. The hotel had been booked months ahead of time.
Upon our arrival, we were appalled to find that you could not drive to the entrance of the hotel. The room that we were assigned was about 2 blocks from the main hotel. Who knew there were rooms not attached to the main Hotel????
We had to carry our bags down the cobblestone street to Arrrive at our room which had a flight of stairs to carry the bags up as well.
The room was absolutely horrible!!! The curtains were barely attached to the rod. There were no hooks to hang towels or cups for the bathroom. We were instructed to put soiled toilet paper in the trash can and not flush down the toilet. This list could go on and on, but I hope the picture is already clear that not all rooms at the Doge are adequate.
There was a Hand held shower in a 2x2 foot stall that was located about 3 feet from the floor without a shower curtain so a shower was out of the question and there was no way to keep water from spilling all over the floor. Did I mention that there was no rug to absorb the water so the floor became extremely hazardous and slippery.
This review is sent because we tried to appeal to the check in clerk who insisted that there were NO MORE ROOMS!!! Amazingly we were there when another member of the wedding party arrived and found they had great rooms assigned to them in the main hotel.
It meant NOTHING to the clerk for us to tell her that the worst room (room #1) had been assigned to the father of the bride!!!!
Obviously the Doge does not value repeated customers as we will never recommend or have any other function at this facility.
