“The Perfect Hotel in Chania!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Belmondo Hotel for five days in May. We had a very well appointed balcony room that overlooked the amazing Venetian Harbor in Chania. We found the room to be very quiet despite being so close to the harbor. The room was very large and very clean. The free Wi-Fi worked well. We enjoyed a personalized breakfast on our balcony every morning. What made our stay exceptional was THE STAFF who were always there to help, with great advice for restaurants and sightseeing. They arranged a late night transfer from the airport to the hotel when we arrived, and a taxi to the Botanical Park outside Chania a site worth seeing. We highly recommend the Belmondo Hotel and would love to return.

This is a basic hotel, it doesn't have dining room, service, pool etc so don't judge it to higher standards. It makes up for this with location and friendly hostesses. We had Venetia suite which overlooks the harbour (I want this room again - it's crap, don't book it, leave it for me). Hotel is right in middle of Hania old port - probably a bit noisy if you want to leave windows open but aircon is good. Only complaint was that mattresses very uncomfortable and I think WIFI not great in rooms. My side was overlooking port, I think some of the rooms mightn't have much of a view and the better ones without port view have view over backstreet (entrance to hotel is via this street, and I'd be quite happy watching life go by here). There's a nice Italian restaurant beside hotel entrance with quirky owner / maître'd or whatever Italian equivalent is. Breakfast is served in room - it's not a big additional charge so I'd probably take it but there are probably other options around. Review possibly sounds negative - would I stay here again, yes absolutely. Two things to note, don't bring a car, absolutely no parking, and beach is probably 1.5km away (we preferred Hania beach to the beach at Rethymnon). Also, and nothing to do with hotel, but the restaurants in Hania are a total pain in the rear end with touts trying to drag you into their places. BTW you will get a discount if you pay by cash rather than credit card!

We had a sea view from our balcony and the bonus was that they deliver your breakfast to your room so we could eat on the balcony. The hotel is right in the centre of the old town just a few metres from the waterfront. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were spotless and our room had a modern bathroom. There is no lift and there are many stairs if you have a room on the top floor. The wifi was intermittent and the signal is weak. However, these were minor issues that did not detract from the overall experience of this charming hotel.

Room Tip: A sea view, the best room is the Belmondo, room 203.

The Belmondo is a really great little hotel right down by the water in the old harbor of Chania. It's literally steps from a host of restaurants and shops in the heart of the town. The staff is excellent, very helpful and friendly in every way and really makes you feel at home. They have a leisurely home made breakfast every morning out on the front porch that is very nice. The rooms are quite large and very comfortable and everything is super clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will most certainly stay here again! Loved it!

My friends were in a room with an ocean view, which was fabulous. I was in the back, which was quieter. The view of the street was nice enough, but I would have traded the relative quiet for the view. There is no lift. The breakfast is quite nice, and it is served in your room. The staff is wonderful. The location is terrific. We walked everywhere and had a great time. The wi-fi was a bit iffy.

We were arriving late from Kithira and via email the staff arranged a cab for us a godsend. When we arrived we thought the hotel was in a perfect location, our only gripe was that we could not stay longer

I recommend this hotel as it is in the centre of the old town of Chania and one step from the old harbour. Whatever you need is near.The ladies at the reception were very gentle and ready to serve any information i needed. The room was spacious with great choice of old furnitures, whereas the bathroom was so modern i enjoyed my breakfast near the flowers at the garden. I am looking forward to travel again at Chania and stay at Belmondo hotel:a paradise in the centre of old town.
