Porto Veneziano Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We took the bus from the airport and took the bus drivers advise where to disembark. The hotel was easy to find....right on the harbour.The location is excellent.
The welcome was very warm and full clear explanations were given by the nice smiling girl behind the desk. The room was very clean..we do check....with extra blankets if it gets cool, and it did. Automatic air con.. Complimentary drinks are in the fridge, water, beer, soft drinks and these are replenished daily. We had a side sea view with balcony and this is one of the quietest hotels we have slept in. Do you really need a sea view, the sea is right outside your front door!
Breakfast we were told was continental but the choice was excellent.
Our only complaint would be that the hot food was never 'hot' under the canopy and the tea and
especially the coffee was never very hot, but this was a common complaint in most of the
restaurants in Chania.
Great value, and we would definitely recommend.

What can I say that hasn't been said about this hotel.Excellent location beautiful modern room, great bed, free mini bar and one of the best breakfasts we have had in Crete.Free parking right beside the maritime museum.One is right there in the middle of everything but located in the quietest part.Magnificent views of the port.Small balcony. Simply excellent.

Every aspect of our stay at Porto Veneziano was completely positve. For a reasonable price the room, view, helpfulness of the staff and breakfast were all superior. The setting was perfect. I didn't rate the pool or fitness center because I didn't use them.

This hotel lived to its top ratings in trip advisor. Everything was perfect. We paid a little extra to get a balcony room and were glad we did. The rooms are nice, but small. There is only room to walk around the end. We were only staying for a night, just my husband and I, and we fully utilized the balcony space. The rooms are small, but comfortable,clean and the location cannot be beat. A bowl of fruit greeted us upon arrival, which we ate on the balcony, watching people stroll the harbor below us. The hotel also provides free bikes.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a room with a balcony facing the harbor.

I really enjoyed the hospitality and breakfast. Service (Reception and waitresses) was excellent. My room was quite small. The breakfast was served in front of the port without though being crowded. The location is perfect.

I just stayed for one night in an individual room with view for the harbour. I did late check in and was very welcomed. The staff was very friendly and gave all the necessary information. The bedroom was fantastic for one single person with large bed, renovated and very clean. Breakfast had everything and with food of very good quality. In summary, I felt I was in a hotel minimum 4 stars :)
