We choose the word "excellent" for everthing we experienced in the hotel yakinthos at chania crete. The breakfast was very good as well as the the rooms (clean and quiet). The beach is about 50 meters from the hotel. The staff was very kind and friendly and we had everything we needed as soon as we asked for it! We strongly recommend it. If anyone choose chania crete he must stay at yakinthos hotel. Thank you. We will back

Room Tip: "choose the rooms with view to the pool"

We really enjoyed our stay in the Yakinthos hotel because we got the tranquility what we needed so much and yet the comfort of a clean hotel. It's only a short walk from the beautiful beach which was not crowded with tourists. You can find other beaches within walking distance. Each beach has his own character so you can choose what you like. Each morning we could taste from a nice breakfast with fresh orange juice. It only takes a 10 minutes trip with the bus to Chania town. The bus stop is near by. The staff at the Yakinthos hotel is very friendly and is doing their best to answer to all your needs without loosing their tyîcal greek style. We will certainly go back!

Yakinthos hotel is a great place to stay for a relaxing vacation. It is located a stone's throw from Neo Chora beach, away from the hustle and bustle of Chania centre, but close enough to hop on a bus and get there in around 10 minutes.

The owner of the hotel, Olga, is an extremely kind and warm person who strives to make everyone's stay a pleasant one. The staff in the hotel are all dedicated to providing the highest standard of customer service and are happy to help with anything - from recommending places to eat, to arranging tours and imparting advice about the local area.

We had originally booked a room without breakfast, but we decided to opt-in as the breakfast buffet looked varied and delicious. Cereals, breads and cakes, eggs, bacon, feta cheese, tomato and cucumber, and sliced ham and turkey are all on offer, served with fresh orange and coffee or tea. The local yoghurt is especially recommended (add a dollop of honey).

The hotel itself offers basic, comfortable rooms with balconies that are fantastic value for money. Nina, the housekeeper, cleans the rooms daily and does a great job. Plenty of clean towels are stocked up and each room has a safe, although if you leave anything lying around it will be absolutely safe as far as the staff go.

There is an outdoor pool at the hotel, though the water is very chilly so warm yourself up under the hot sun before jumping in.

If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet hotel near Chania that is great value for money, Yakinthos is the place to go. For younger travelers who might also want to experience Chania city center by night, I would recommend spending a few nights here before venturing into Chania to stay in one of the many central venetian-style hotels, giving you the best of both worlds.

A drink welcomes you at the check in done late in the evening, that’s a good start. The clean and in good condition room was wide enough for 2 adult and a boy, a bit smaller the bathroom but well maintained, courtesy kit include body cream and shave cream. Excellent breakfast and for lazy people, the swimming pool is available but Greek sea is really 30 seconds walk. Good rates and good position, just few kilometers east Chania and if you don’t have a car, is well connected by public transport.

We stayed there for a week with our little child and really liked the place. Staff was very friendly and service was excellent all the time. The hotel is in good condition and cleanliness is on high level. Place is very peaceful with beautiful sandy beach just about 50 meters from the hotel. Breakfast was varied and tasty, fresh orange juice was delicious. Great location, especially if you have a car in use and like to visit Chania, Samaria and Elafonissi for example. Excellent value for money.
