“Great Value, Close to Harbor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Very clean, but small bathrooms. Very budget friendly. Air conditioning. The neighborhood is difficult to park in, but other than that, fine. It's a close walk to the inner harbor, and the owners have great recommendations for restaurants and beaches.
The beds aren't that comfortable, but you will be hard-pressed to find a comfortable bed in the entire country.

Room Tip: Ask for a tip on the top floor, they are quietest.

Fantastic hotel experience as the owner and his son, Chris, provided me with very accurate and helpful information on how to enjoy Chania and Crete. The overall service was warm and friendly as the hotel staff would often take the extra effort to ensure my vacation was going very well.
The rooms were excellent as they were spacious, clean and modern with excellent flat screen TV and the best free Wi fi service experienced in Crete. Located 100 metres from beach, entrance into Old Town and many cafes and bars with a beautiful view of the sea! Plenty of parking available if you are driving and slept very well with the comfortable beds and quiet room.
Would highly recommend to all travellers and will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Crete!

We stayed at this hotel in August. Not very central but ok location. The neighbourhood is a bit run down. The hotel staff was friendly and the room clean but the bathroom was extremely and uncomfortably small. Overall, ok for a budget stay.

My husband and I stayed here for a week in June, and had a really pleasant experience. The bedrooms are spacious, comfortable, and clean. The price is also very good! The hotel is very well located, near the old town, and all the touristic areas. The owners are amazing people, they are extremely helpful and welcoming, especially Christos, who made our stay so enjoyable! He's the friendliest person ever. We recommend this place a 100%
