We stayed in Esplanade Apartments for a week in July! The area is quiet and about a 15-min drive to Chania center. The hotel is near the beach with amazing views to the sea and the Cretan nature! It has large apartments with amazing mattresses and everything you could need. The restless owner, Iannis, upgrades them every year. (This year he upgraded them with a 43 inch Lg Smart Tv and a Nespesso machine!) Also, he has created a program for 13 daily trips by car around the Chania region! This helped us a lot to visit some places and beaches that we couldn’t have found otherwise. He also recommended us a lot of Cretan traditional restaurants and local dishes that we should definitely try! Iannis, thank you so much for all! We see u next year!

Spent a week with a group of 4. It's really well located in a peaceful neighborhood just a few steps from the local beach and a short drive from the main attractions in the area. Clean, with the owners still giving you this feeling of warm hospitality only small family businesses can. Highlight of our stay, spending the night around the pool, just relaxing and enjoying the views! Will definitely be our choice next time we visit Crete!!

We only stayed in the accommodation for two days, but we could be there for months and not get tired. There is a great beach nearby that you should not miss. Ask Yiannis for other beaches as he will tell you many beaches that you must visit :)

The apartment is well equipped,very clean, its very quiet area and to the center of Chania is not far. Definitely recommend!

Absolutely brilliant! Iannis was incredible! He is the most amazing host I have ever met. So friendly and just so nice! The place was fantastic. So clean and everything as described. Cleaning service everyday and she was also extremely nice. 10/10 on everything. will be the only place I will stay if I come back to Crete/chania. Have already recommended to my friends and family. Shop less than 5 mins with local bus going regularly into chania as we didn’t rent car. Reliable and cheap. Thank you for everything Iannis. Best place we’ve ever stayed!

My sister and I stayed here and had an amazing experience. The owner is very welcoming and kind. He gaves us a lot of information about places that we could visit in and close to Chania. The appartement is very clean and well equipped with a big refrigerator, freezer and kitchen. Close to the hotel are restaurants that the owner recommended. The hotel has a perfect location. The surroundings are beautiful. Only 1 km away from a nice beach. There is free parking in front of the hotel. I really recommend this hotel. We definitely would want to come back again!

I booked through booking to stay with my wife and at last we extened our stay till the end of our holidays. There were so many things to do as Yannis recommended. We went to Kalathas beach , Stavros, Tersanas , Ag. Onoufrios beach and the morning before our flight to Seitan limania beach , the best ever spot. The apartment is modern Cretan style. It is very clean and has daily cleaning service . We hope to see you again next year .

Hi, Mary Rose, thank you very much for your request. I think you are coming in 2 days here , aren,t you? The hotel does not have washing faciliites. 1.Within 3 klm there is a speed laundry in the next village and you take the clothes in a few hours. Prices are very reasonable. 2.Within 5-6 klm there is a self service laundry where you put coins to wash your clothes , you wait to take them out. When you come the day after tommorow I tell you how we manage . I try to do the best for my clients. See You, have a nice day, have a nice flight, Yiannis

Dear Cinzia, hello, thank you very much for your request. The distance from Chania center is 9 klm . About airport transfer it depends if the reception is open so I cannot come to the airport or if I have other arrivals and departures. Thank you, Yiannis Perrakis

Do you have parking?
Answer from Iannis P
Galway, Ireland5 contributions2 helpful votes
Dear Adlani, thank you very much for your question. I do have parking outside of the hotel and all the street is available parking for the hotel. All the cars belong to our costumers for the hotel . This street is secondary and no other cars pass from here because it is not the main road Chania-Kalathas. If you want something more please do not hesitate for asking . You can make a request through my website or send your request to my email address Esplanade apartments in Kalathas . I can make you a good offer. Kind regards, have a nice day, Yiannis
Answer from esplanadeapts
Dear Marie, bonjour, good morning, kalimera, thank you very very much for your question. Balos from Kalathas is about 70 klm . It is about 1 hour and 30 minutes drive. The last 15 klm are very difficult. That is why you need much time to reach Balos. after the parking you need about 20 minutes walk down hill to reach Balos beach. It is a whole day trip.
