The location of the hotel is perfect. Very near to the old Venetian part of Chania and a few minutes walk away from the center of the town. The rooms were simple and very clean with lovely view to the Aegean sea.The breakfast was good .The staff was very friendly and helpful!

It was located in a pedestrian walking area of Old Town in Chania. It was $75-$80 a night which was reasonable for the location. You parked your car a couple of blocks away at a public park (Free). You could walk the whole Old Town area and not need a car for anything. The hotel provided a deluxe continental breakfast and there were many restaurants outside the door for meals at reasonable prices. The room was nice large area and a sizable bathroom. Free WI-Fi in lobby. Ask for a room with a balcony as they seem to be larger and the balcony in the evening is to die for. Note: The 3 storied hotel has NO elevator and one must take their own luggage to the room, but the staff is very helpful and friendly. You will be given a key to the hotel as the staff leaves at 11 pm each night and if you are late returning, you must let yourself into the hotel. The old town area of Chania reminds one of Venice Italy as it was inhabited by the Venetians for a quiet awhile. The old town, surrounded by Harbor front, has many markets, restaurants and churches all within walking distance.

We stayed for just one night in April while touring about the island. Walk up price 60 euros for a double with breakfast, so considerably more than we payed in rural Crete, but reasonable for a place like this in Chania. The room was very spacious and gracious, with old dark wood furniture, and a small balcony onto the street (fairly quiet during the night - at this time of year anyway). En suite had a shower over the bath with a flappy curtain - not my favourite combination, but reasonably functional.
The manager was helpful with suggestions of where to go and where I might find particular items to take home.
Breakfast was very good too.

Small hotel. Good price. Easy walking to town but parking is tough and hard to find.
Call for directions. Great bistro directly across street.
Best shopping of all the places we visited in Greece.
About 15 minute walk to beach-pebbles but very clean water.

Four nights at the Palazzo in charming city of Chania. Irena and Anastasia were delightful hosts, and very helpful with directions and travel advice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel.

We stayed here Sept.2010 for 6 nights & occupied 2nd floor room 'Dimitra' which had street views on two sides. The room was spacious with a good outlook & the aircon worked well. The ensuite was a little dissappointing, particularly the shower. My wife and I are both slim but the shower cubicle was minimal size, whatever you do don't drop the soap, also water in the morning was only lukewarm at best. However the hosts are charming & the location could not be better, 1 minute walk to the Venetian port & 15 minutes to the nearest beach and plenty of restaurants nearby to suit all pockets including a small 'open all hours 50m down the street.

Breakfasts were OK but a little variation in the fruit on offer would be nice, fresh peaches & grapes every day became a bit 'samey' but all in all the location wins over every time. As to whether 80 euros per night is good value for money is open to debate but Chania itself is delightful and we will return to explore the island further but maybe not from this base.
