Palazzo Duca Hotel
Ranked #8 of 114 Chania Town B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 17, 2012

If you visit Chania, you should definitely accommodate in the Old Harbor area. Palazzo Duca four star Hotel is absolutely perfect, it is located in the Old Harbor, very coquette, very clean, with excellent stuff (we visited and ate where they recommended us and the trip was fantastic). The hotel was opened this summer, it is brand new. We loved that they kept some elements of the old building (for example, the wall behind beds that appear in the photos). The hotel was furnished with great skill, old style and modern elements are excellent combined.

Stayed: July 2012, traveled as a couple

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Beautifully decorated with a small kitchenette, excellent bathrooms and comfortable beds!!! The location is unbeatable, in the centre of the old town and just off the harbour, with lots of good restaurants and bars nearby, but no noise in the rooms. The owner, Georges, was helpful and friendly: we had originally booked a studio but it was too small for 2 weeks and he very quickly offered us a much larger room. Only a few rooms have balconies with a view but there is a small but well-appointed roof terrace with excellent views of the small streets and part of the harbour.

The room was cleaned every day and linens changed regularly in out 2 week stay.

A few helpful extras would be more prep space in the kitchenettes, more than 1 pan, and a kettle rather than a coffee percolator for us tea-drinking Brits!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony and a view - some balconies open into an internal space.

I actually stumbled upon this hotel by foot as I was walking through the old town during the latter part of July. The hotel had been completely renovated - hip lobby, beautiful rooms with new showers/vanities, comfortable beds, wood floors, sitting areas with couches (sans the studio room), free wifi, and an elevator. Fabulous location - right off the port, next door to one of the better restaurants in Chania, Tamam. I was so impressed with the hotel and the owner/manager George that we booked a night for the following week, before we were scheduled to leave for NY (we had been staying in Nopigia). A few days before our arrival, George had taken the initiative to e-mail me about parking (close by) and the type of room we required (studio, larger room w/spa, or room with sitting area/couch). My only concern with leaving our villa west of Chania and opting for the old town (a day early) was that we weren't scheduled to fly out until 6 pm the following day. And, under normal circumstances, the thought of being kicked out of a hotel room around 10 am and having to sit around all day for a flight seemed stressful - especially while traveling with our 4 year old. To my surprise, George said "no problem, you can check out at 3!" Now, I realize that this will not always be the case (once this hotel starts hopping and availability is limited), but nevertheless, I thought this gesture on his part was exceptional - and for this reason alone, we would return to this hotel in a heartbeat.

Palazzo Duca is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in.
It's beautifully decorated and very clean.

It is located in the Old Town, literally seconds from the sea and the old port.
It's surrounded by restaurants, cafes and shops.

To wrap up, if you're in Chania, Palazzo Duca is the perfect hotel to stay in.

Room Tip: Good Wi-Fi and A/C in all rooms.

The location is perfect, in that we could access free parking relatively close to the hotel. There are lots of restaurants and bars literally next to the hotel there is no noise coming in the rooms. The sea view from our room was fantastic. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there is a kitchen in which you can cook your own meals, if you want to.

We initially stayed at the Halepa and thought it was overpriced, so when we walked by this brand new boutique hotel one night, we decided to move and were happy we did. We paid 80 euros for an absolutely beautiful suite. Everything was first rate- the mattress is amazing, the sheets and pillows were first rate and the place is beautifully decorated. The location is also unbeatable- just a block away from the harbor. This places is a real find!
