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.

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.

This is a truly beautiful hotel in the most fabulous location in Chania. The staff are all very nice and extremely helpful. The breakfast setting outside on the cobbles is stunning. Try the muesli with the yoghurt and honey. We had a suite overlooking the Marina.

Stayed here 3 nights for our honeymoon. The "king bed" was two twin beds made up separately and pushed together. Not exactly what you're looking for on your honeymoon. At least use king sheets over the two beds so we could sleep together. The room was exceptionally small. No real space to walk or to store our carry on sized suitcases and large backpack. Room and all areas of the hotel were exceptionally clean. Front desk staff was not what I would call friendly and seemed preoccupied all the time, so that when you approached and asked a question it was as if you were bothering them. We arrived late, around 10pm, so there wasn't anyone around. Three people were behind the desk. Not one looked up or acknowledged us for some time. I saw the qr code for contactless check in and went to scan it, and then was greeted by the front desk. In the morning, I went and asked for a map of the area and it was all but shoved through the plexiglass at me. Other places I've stayed, they've pointed out where you are and kind of gone over highlights of the area. Nope, just slide through the window and turned back to what she was working on. Later in the day, my husband asked for assistance getting a rental car. The lady called two places with no luck and told us she would work on it and get back with us later in the afternoon. Okay, awesome! We came back about 2-3 hours later and they had contacted one more place with no luck. It wasn't until he pushed again did they call a few more places. Breakfast was great. Wait staff was hustling!! Location can't be beat, but based on the ratings and reviews, I was expecting a much different experience. Pictures are the view from our balcony.

Our stay here was wonderful! Right on the waterfront with a great view of the port - falling asleep with the boats lapping against the pier was amazing! Very good breakfast! Good size room, clean and comfortable. Very accommodating staff - warm and friendly. Excellent location - close to the port where restaurants and shopping were plentiful.
