“LOVELY HOTEL IN THE HEART OF THE OLD TOWN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

We stayed 3 nights in this charming little hotel at the beginning of June. The entrance is on a narrow pedestrian road parallel to the old Venetian harbour but some of the rooms look out onto the harbour itself. The rooms are very spacious and airconditioned even though we prefered to have the window open. As the area is a pedestrian area there are no cars around and therefore no noise and no car fumes. The bathroom was very clean with thank goodness no blocked drains.Breakfast was served to us on a verandah at the entrance and there was plenty of it including Greek yoghurt and honey every day.On leaving the hotel you are immediately in the centre of the old shopping area. If I return to Chania I will definitely stay here again and I have already recommended it to many friends.

I loved Chania, and loved this hotel, you'll feel a bit like you're in Venice. We stayed in a very large room with a huge balcony, I believe it was the Venezia room. They bring you lovely and large breakfasts to your room to eat out on the balcony at your leisure as you enjoy the views and hustle and bustle of the small port and waterside cafes below. The greek yogurt and honey at breakfast are delicious! This is not a "luxury" hotel but it is nice and really feels at home in the old town part of Chania. Fabulous location just overlooking the port and cafes, wonderful views, very convenient for strolling around at night and choosing a restaurant. Tip: you probably want to avoid most of the restaurants right on the water as they don't have the best food...just grab a drink at these.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a balcony room, I believe it was the Venezia room that we stayed in and has the lar...

Spent just one night in a balcony room - fantastic view of the harbor - charming hotel, immaculate housekeeping. Very firm beds which we appreciate. Be warned - this is a very old hotel - the floors creak rather loudly - there is no elevator - if you are carrying significant luggage, it is a real chore to heist it up from street level to the lobby, then up two rather steep flights of stairs to the balcony level rooms. Excellent breakfast served on our balcony. The evening of arrival, the staff were able to provide a bucket of ice, and we enjoyed cocktails on our balcony at sunset, If I were coming back to Chania, would probably stay here again, but plan to travel light!

Difficult to find late at night as in pedestrian area but once found our key was at the front door for us to let ourselves in.
First night in a standard room - very big room and more than adequate. Four nights in Epoque room with fantastic small balcony looking over the whole port. Very large room with two large daybeds,couches,desk,coffee table smalldining table and chairs and queen size bed.Ataff were very accommodating and we appreciated a tray of tea being brought to us on our return in the afternoons. Breakfast was brought to your room - yoghurt,ham,cheese,bread and biscuits and coffee/tea - sat on the balcony enjoying the view.Good free internet and with windows and shuuters closed despite restaurants below we were not disturbed by news. Thank you to the accommodating staff.

Room Tip: Either of the two suites that overlook the old port with balconies.

The Belmondo hotel was a fantastic little hotel. We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is perfect in the heart of the pedestrian area of Chania (this would however be helpful to know when trying to find the hotel and drop off luggage). With the right rooms looking out over the port you can catch some fantastic sunsets over the port. Belmondo room was one such room with a HUGE balcony overlooking the port. This room is on the top floor and the stairs are a bit steep so I wouldn't recommend it to everyone, but if stairs are no problem normally these won't be any worse. I traveled with my wife and my parents and the hotel staff were very nice and carried a couple of my parents bags up to the Belmondo room for them. My wife and I stayed in a room that overlooked the restaurant below and the entrance (I forget the name) and it was also large and inviting. The hotel offers wireless internet which is very nice although it can be difficult to connect at times. The breakfast was very good, although as others have mentioned, a bit repetitive. The people at the front desk are very helpful, although I must mention that you may want to double check information that they give you, particularly about day trips and other events that they can schedule for you. We got ourselves in a bit of a jam due to some wrong information from the front desk. Not entirely their fault but you may want to double check information. I always prefer to hear negatives on TripAdvisor so I know what I am getting into. I have mentioned a few here, but I do not want to keep people from going to this hotel! We had a fantastic experience here and would come back again if we ever get back to Chania.

Room Tip: The Belmondo room was beautiful with a large balcony

The pros: Friendly staff, excellent location, powerful AC

The cons: uncomfortable beds, very noisy location, food smells from restaurants filter up into the room if windows are open, staff ( housekeeper)smokes cigarettes and the smoke finds its way up the stairwell into rooms, while others mentioned the breakfasts, we found them unimaginative and stale, and went out to the Starbucks on the corner.(although I give them credit for the effort), weak internet connection

We decided if we ever come back to Chania we would try another hotel.
