Stoa Rooms
Ranked #32 of 114 Chania Town B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We spent three nights at Stoa and would highly recommend it. The price is unbeatable, especially considering how close it is to the harbor. We loved the location, being able to walk everywhere in Chania very easily. The room was basic but spacious and clean with a kitchenette. And the owner was friendly and helpful.

We were 3 womens looking for a clean, well located but inexpensive hotel for a five nights stay in Chania. We booked a triple Room with a view at the Stoa room and had an enjoyable stay. Here are the pros and cons of staying at the Stoa Room:
Pros
- Yiannis the owner is so welcoming. He was waiting for us on our late night arrival (11pm). He then took the time to show us around, how everything work. When he realized the safe deposit box was broken, he had it fixed later on. I gave us gifts when we left and talk about his appartment that he will have to rent whenever I go back. He is a great host!
- Room: The room is clean and well appointed (kettle, coffee, milk, water, candy ...). I enjoy the shutter blocking the sunlight in the morning. The bathroom was surprisingly large. The room was refresh each day. The AC in the room and the Wi-Fi work well. The balcony fitted 3 persons and was a plus value. I am glad we have paid extra for it. We had the nicest view (although obstructed by electricty cable) sipping a glass of wine at sunset before going to dinner.
-Location: you can't beat the location. Since you are at the pedestrian entrance of the venetian port, you are surrounded by typical small alley that are so nice to walk in. Yet, you have the bus station and travel agency nearby, also walkable if you need to travel in Crete.
Cons
-We knew the room was small and we are not fussy. It was ok for 5 nights. But for 3 mature woman, we ended up by finding the room small for a longer term stay.
-One key for 3 persons was a bit challenging.
-The shower is small, but typical for Greece. You need to develop skills to wash efficiently.
-The location is unbeatable but comes with noise. We were off season so it was not as much of a problem during the week, but on the weekend, you hear the lively ambiance from the restaurant pretty well. I slept well, but with earplugs.
-Once, the housekeeper entered the room without knocking while we were in there.
Overall, keeping in mind that we got a very central location for the fraction of the price, we really enjoyed our stay at the Stoa Room. The price/quality ratio is undeniable and I will return one day! Chania is wonderful and Crete needs weeks to be discovered properly.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a room with a balcony.

A couple of minutes' walk from Hania's famed harbour-front, this is an absolutely brilliant accommodation that also provides superb value for money. We arrived pretty late in the evening, but Yiannis was around to receive us and get us settled. Our room had a nice balcony, a small kitchenette - overall, a small but well-contained studio for a very comfortable stay in a quaint, laid-back, beautiful town.

Room Tip: We had room # 5 for a family of three - highly recommended.

We stayed 3 nights in Stoa rooms. The rooms are simple, and basic, but beautifully kept and incredibly clean. Our room was cleaned so expertly, that when doing our final sweep before leaving, we found that some of our clothes had even been hung up in the wardrobe for us!

The location is fantastic, literally around the corner from the old town, and we weren't troubled by noise at all. The room comes with lovely extras such as tea, coffee, biscuits and sweeties. The beds were firm and on the small side. The bathroom was lovely, and newly refurbished, however, as we have often found in Greece, the detachable shower head is not attached to the wall.

One thing to note, is as there are only five rooms, there is no reception. If you happen to arrive when Yannis is not around, there is a number to call him on, and he will come immediately to let you in. This was slightly tricky for us as we don't have a working cellphone, but we just went to one of the many many cafes and restaurants nearby, and used their wifi to call.

Definitely recommend Stoa Rooms, we'd love to come back!

We arrived 1 day earlier than scheduled in Chania and unfortunately there wad no vacancies for that night (we had booked for the following 2). Iannis called his acquaintance to find us a roof for the night (it was past 9:30PM), stayed with us while we were waiting for our new host and even offered us a snack.
The day after we got our room, nice and clean, well equipped and with sweets on the night table. The bathroom was bigger than all the ones we had before and with a shower cabin (which means a lot to anyone that has ever been to Crete before). Iannis came back few minutes later with croissants for us.
The morning after he offered us orange juice. We really felt welcomed and we were sad to leave so soon.
The location of the rooms is just perfect, near the old harbor but in a quiet street, and Iannis is just the nicest man we met.
We will definitely stay again there and recommend the place. Be careful though, there are only 4 rooms !

We arrived at Chania in early September, and were greeted very warmly by the host, who even offered us ice-creams, and answered all our queries. The room is at an excellent location, very close to the port and the old city, clean and very tidy. It is well equipped and meticulously cleaned whilst you are there.

The only downside was some music late at night from the port, which didn't last long anyway and I am assuming everyone living in that area probably heard, and the very small shower.

Our overall experience was great, and would recommend it to anyone visiting Chania.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 are adjacent and with the walls being thin, I would go for either rooms 3 or 4 (we sta...

We arrived in Chania late afternoon. The owner was waiting for us and greeted us very warmly and with ice cream. he was helpful and answered all our queries about the area. The room was very tidy and clean but as is usual in Crete no shower-curtain, showerhead holder and slightly reduced shower pressure. We had a lovely little balcony though the view unfortunately could have been better. Despite being in the centre of Chania and noting some minor noise, we slept very well throughout our stay. The location was amazing right behind the harbour. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and could not have stayed at a better place for such a cheap price with such a lovely owner who truly made us feel at home.
