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

Well you must experience this place. Three bedrooms only with one on each floor. (No lift)Owner operated by Martina and her helper Diana. Both lovely people and Martina has such a bubbly personality. Wonderful Venitian Harbour views and quiet location as long as windows closed. This place is beautifully furnished in period pieces. The bed large and good firm mattress.... 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. The best... More

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

We stayed at this amazing boutique hotel last year April over the Easter weekend so just in time for some authentic Greek holiday festivities. We stayed in the Stella Suite which was a home away from home for my husband and I. Spectacular views over the old harbour and views from the patio of the White Mountains. Be it that... More

We stayed here in the height of tourist season, in the Stella Suite (top floor). Everything about the hotel is lovely, with a beautiful decor and a wonderful homely atmosphere. The bed in our suite was large and comfortable, with a beautiful view out over the harbour, right on the waterfront, and a terrace overlooking the old town and the... More

First I have to say this is my very first review in TripAdvisor. Matina and Diana made our stay very special and I couldn't help writing a review here. Only because we happened to find this charming hotel, we changed our travel plan and included Chania into our schedule. Without this hotel we didn't even go to Creta at all... More

As other reviews have stated: excellent location, very warm hospitality, spectacular views, incredible breakfasts, numerous excellent restaurants outside your door. Cautionary note: might be initially hard to find (entrance down a pedestrian only alleyway), no onsite parking or elevator. This had zero bearing on our wonderful experience. Middle of all the action but a lovely refuge from all the activity.... More

We spent two nights at the room Argyris and it was wonderful. The decoration couldn't be more tasteful, mixing family antiques with new furniture. The ambience was relaxing and made us feel in a private retreat after our excursions in Crete. The location couldn't be better, just in the middle of the old venetian port with stunning views of the... More
