I was a bit nervous after contacting Pension Theresa and being told "there was probably a room" and that if there wasn't, Maria would help us find one somewhere else. However, upon arriving, all fears/nervousness were put to ease. The Pension is in a beautiful location, on the old harbor down a very beautiful street. We had arrived super early on the ferry, and although Maria (who runs the hotel) doesn't usually get to work until 9, she had arrived at 7 to meet us since I sounded nervous on the phone. Our room wasn't ready so she bought us coffee next door and then took us on a walking tour of Chania, explaining the history and pointing out good restaurants. Originally we planned to stay two nights but ended up staying for four because we liked it so much. Our experience in Crete was completely changed for the better by our decision to stay at this place. We were constantly given good advice on what places to visit and how to get there. I could see why some people might post negative reviews of this place. If you are a looking for a four star, luxury hotel where you are waited on hand and foot, look elsewhere. The Pension Theresa is exactly what I am looking for when I go on vacation. It was cheap, extremely friendly, and beautiful inside and out. I can only imagine the people posting negative reviews aren't happy with anything ever.

Room Tip: 8 has amazing harbor views but can be noisy

Pension Theresa is has a beautiful top floor terrace with a self-service kitchen overlooking the harbour. For value, it's hard to beat a room rate of 40€ (October). The room itself was very large, had a kitchen and fridge and could have slept 5 with the loft. Unfortunately, we were just a little late and the people before us got the front-facing room. Like most very old buildings, the plumbing is weak and they warn you about the toilet paper. However, hot water was plentiful and the pressure was good.
The bed was like a futon rather than a box spring and mattress. Full breakfast can be had next door for a very reasonable charge (€6.50 pp if I recall). WiFi at no extra charge. If you can put up with an old building, it's a great place to stay.
Oh yes, there's no avoiding the narrow winding staircase, so you will have to haul your luggage up it. And because it is in the Old Harbour, access by automobile is limited to before 11 a.m. (to service the restaurants). However, you can probably call for a taxi just on the other side of the Naval Museum. We walked to the main taxi stand which was only about 500 meters away.

We found out abt Pension Theresa through Lonely Planet. It was one of their 'picks' of hotels in Hania.

The room (room #1) that we stayed in was big, airy, comfy and quaint. It has a character of its own, and we couldnt help but fall in love with it the min. we stepped into the room. It is the best room in Pension Theresa and do request for this room if you plan to stay there (accomodates up to 4 persons). Many commented that the steps are steep, but it is exactly what makes pension theresa so special.

The owner, Maria, is the most hospitable Cretan (or Greek) that we've met. She knew that we were on our honeymoon, and actually prepared some flowers, wine, chocs & biscuits when we checked it. It was a wonderful surprise. During one of the nights, Maria took us around Hania town and explained to us the history of Crete. We uncovered some hidden gems in Hania, which wouldnt have been possible if we walked ard on our own. She has made our stay in Crete very memorable.

The hotel is located at an excellent spot in old Hania town, quiet yet near the habour, shops and restaurants. It is excellent value for money as I believe you wont be able to get another place with such good qualities in other parts of Hania.

We spent a week in Chania - 2 couples. We had bad luck having the only room at the top floor where the heat was unbearable. The aircon was noisy and not effective enough to cool down the room which had probably no isolation at all. Unfortunately next to our door there was an awful smell coming out of the sewer pipes, so opening it to get some fresh air was out of the question. The amazing view from the terrace could have consoled us had there not been loud disco rhythm played 2 nights in a row until the small hours. The bathroom (especially the tub) was ridiculously small and it didn't help that during our stay, Chania municipality had problems with water pressure, so 4 out of 6 nights we were left with no water at all. To make matters worse, after one long sleepless night, we were waken up by two handymen at 8am who were walking on our roof probably intending to repair the water supply. Ask me if we had fun...
