#7 of 120 hotels in Chania Town
Travelers' Choice
The Porto Veneziano Hotel is located in Chania, in the prime location of the Old Venetian Harbor, on the seafront and only a 10-minute walk from the city center. It is an ideal place to stay, with the most popular attractions within walking distance. Completing the room renovation in April 2013, the hotel now offers a minimal navy design, excellent quality beds with double mattresses and geothermal air conditioning system, friendly to the environment. The hotel has been certified to serve a full Greek Breakfast buffet with a Cretan note and attempts to provide a journey to the island's flavors and tastes. Enjoy daily our freshly squeezed orange juice, local produce, homemade dishes, traditional cookery, seasonal fruit, freshly made desserts etc. At the Bar, after strolling through the beautiful harbor, guests will enjoy all kinds of coffee and Cretan flavorsome concoctions, snacks, sweets, ice cream, drinks and an assortment of Greek and European ice cold beer. The hotel even offers free Wi-Fi and all rooms and interior public areas are strictly nonsmoking.

Spent a few wonderful nights as a guest here. The hotel is seated at the end of the old port in Chania. Excellent food and drink at the on site restaurant, with dining available in the bar, covered patio, or the boardwalk on the water. I left my balcony door open every night to capture the breeze off the ocean. You can walk all through the old port, downtown and surrounding areas from here. Local shops and tavernas/cafes abound. There is a small parking lot behind the hotel if you have a car. Once parked, I never drove because everything is close by. Eleni at the front desk and George in the bar will make you feel right at home in this warm, friendly and reasonably priced gem. Breakfast was included with my room, and it was excellent. Dinner was well priced and delicious. *For those traveling during COVID restrictions: The hotel can make an appointment for testing at the local hospital every morning and evening. Cost at the hospital is 100E. Results were available within a few hours, making travel much easier. * Looking forward to my next stay.

Perfect little hotel with friendly staff and an amazing breakfast! We only stayed a night as we had rented a villa with the family, but the location, staff and food was lovely and we’ll definitely come back. Good value for money and right by the lighthouse. Recommend having a drink in the evening outside.
