We stayed at the Esplande apartments during a week long break to Crete. The apartments are located about 10-15mins from Chania airport and a further 10-15mins to Chania town. We were met by the great host, Yiannis, upon arrival and shown around our room. The rooms are basic, but well furnished, spacious and very clean – beds were comfortable, great shower, lovely sea views from most of the balconies. Given how reasonable the rates were, I thought this was a very well presented and furnished apartment.
The location is nice if you like being slightly out of the hustle and traffic of Chania town, but close enough to reach it in a few minutes by car. You might struggle by bus, but I’m sure the hotel owner could advise – we got loads of excellent advice about less well known places to visit and the tourist traps to avoid.
Overall a really excellent stay, a welcoming host and great value. Would have no problem recommending.
