Stayed at this very basic hotel for a while. Perfect location of you like a lovely beach. Some of the staff here are extremely rude and miserable. One guy was so rude he wouldn't even look at me .. I paid thousands !! They make you feel like you owe them something all the time- but your the one paying... More

We spent the first nights of our trip. The room was nothing special but the location had a great beach and is walking distance to the old Venetian harbor and really great breakfast option. Staff was very friendly. We rented car and always found parking right in front on street.

If you are looking for a clean, friendly, and convenient place to stay on the beach, then this hotel is perfect for you. The location is fantastic and a short 10-second walk to the beach. We had 2 sea view rooms with balconies. The rooms were spacious enough for us and our stuff. The room had controllable air conditioning and... More

Had another great stay at Danaos. Very handy for our group opposite the beach and close to the town. Unfortunately the rooms are looking a bit shabbier than they were 9 years ago, however everything spotlessly clean and to be honest we didn't spend alot of time in our rooms. We had a room with balcony overlooking the beach which... More

I spent nine days here for a workshop and was delighted by my stay. The hotel personnel were very friendly and the hotel is well placed, just across the street from Nea Chora beach, near the main port of Chania town. The rooms were basic but very clean and I had a small balcony with a city view. Breakfast was... More

Seven couples, seven nights! We all had balcony rooms and had wonderful sea views and could hear the water of a night. We also had a personal beach area. A variety of good restaurants within walking distance. Only minutes to old town and much quieter, not as touristy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Clean,comfortable rooms. Highly recommend it.

We had 7 rooms booked with everyone being extremely happy with our choice of accomodation. Staff, service and the cleanliness were outstanding. It is directly across from the beach and a short walk to the old town. Plenty of good restaurants are close and there is a bar downstairs

We spent a week at hotel Danaos as a group of fifteen. We had the most amazing time - the staff were so lovely, the location was perfect, and we couldn't fault a thing. The sun-beds on the beach were so convenient, and the recommendations from the staff were perfect every time. Cannot recommend enough!
