Really clean comfortable hotel great value and brilliant breakfasts. Free shuttle into town very quiet. Lovely pool and conservatory for drinks and snacks. Stayed in three places in Chania and this was the best deal.

Very nice hotel out of downtown, but with shuttle service provided.The room was extremely comfortable with a private balcony overlooking the Cretan Sea and the town.The swimming pool is one of the nicest I know and the Greek/Mediterranean breakfast was delicious!! Loved it and want to go back!

We stayed 3 nts in this hotel out of season. Hotel staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable about the area. Chania the city itself is a great place to base yourself for exploring western Crete, with most places accessible by hire car on a day trip basis. Highly recommend this hotel for couples or families. Very clean and modern building.

Just spent 4 days at this little gem of a hotel! Very clean. Great location just 15 mins from Chania airport and 10 mins drive in to town.

Third visit to the Royal Sun since May last year and yet again can only sing praises. From the minute we walked into reception to the warmest of welcomes from Dimitris, everything was just perfect. Although the visit coincided with poorish weather, we were comfortable and cosy in our beautiful room overlooking the sea and the town, and the restaurant/bar...

This hotel is perched at the edge of Chania town, on the mountain ridge overlooking the whole bay. The architect has made best use of this spectacular location, with large windows all along the lounge and restaurant, so it's a great place to sit and enjoy the views any time of day. Considering the prices, everything is very good value...

Reading the reviews of the Royal Sun impressed me, therefore inspiring me to book. This hotel is absolute fabulous. We stayed here in August 2016 for 10 nights and it was just the most pleasant experience. We paid for the room with a sea view (worth the money), it was super clean, modern decor, double beds, big balcony overlooking the...
