This hotel is simply wonderful. Its location is perfect, right on the waterfront. The room I stayed in - Matina - had an unbelievable view of the water and a small balcony where we could enjoy the raki they left for us. The room was spacious and so comfortable. The hotel has been perfectly restored and is a breathtaking mix... More

Amazing place designed with every detail taken into consideration. Hugely thoughtful and helpful service from Matina & Diana, especially when we realised a few hours after checking out that we had lost a phone. Fantastic location - definitely good value.

Our family stayed at Mama Nena's Charming Hotel for 3 nights/4 days this spring and our visit could not have been more perfect. The hotel is located in the heart of old town Chania with a breathtaking view of the bay. We stayed in the largest room on the top floor, which was a great fit for our family of... More

We stayed for a few nights out of season. Great views on the port, lovely house, lovely owner, nice breakfast. Rooms are noisy and in high season this must be a downside as it will be very busy below the hotel. Otherwise absolutely a place to go back to.

Our room has the best view in the whole city. The small balcony overlooked the Venitian port and lighthouse and the deep blue horizon. On the other side of the balcony, we had the view of the white mountains with snow still on them in April!! The service was exceptional with the owner catering to our every need. There was... More

This is a tiny hotel with only 3 or 4 rooms with a view of the old harbor in Chania. Its location for shopping and restaurants is superb. There is no elevator but the staff insisted on carrying our rather heavy bags to our room on the top floor. On the first floor (European first) there is a small dining... More

In the middle ( really!) of the beautiful Chania.....an Oasis of rest and relaxation. If you like your hotel to be a 'nice' place to feel at home from the first second, and if you like the experience that your hosts are happy to have you, and if you like very tasteful interior style...you have to stay there.

We reserved in this hotel for our stay in Chania during our honeymoon in july 2013 based on tripadvisor reviews. It was a bit difficult to find the hotel at first, but once there, the place exceeded all our expectations. We had to wait for Matina for some time to give us access, but the owner of the neighboring restaurant... More
