What a great view from every room on the front side of this hotel as well as the restaurant and outside restaurant balcony! Beautiful sunsets! Wonderful staff was extremely helpful and courteous. Breakfast buffet was excellent and plentiful. Hotel and rooms were extremely clean. Food from the restaurant was very good, large servings and free dessert and raki. Pool was very nice but the water too cold to swim. Very relaxing hotel away from the downtown area. We had two different rooms and neither bed was very comfortable....too hard. That is my only complaint. The second bed was better...foam type. Shuttle is helpful. Enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for the foam beds.

Visited the hotel with my wife very recently and it was an absolute worth for money, service and quality. The rooms were impeccably clean, and the staff was courteous, helpful, fluent in English and ever ready to help.

Special thanks to Nickolai (hope the spelling is correct) and both the hotel shuttle drivers, who were really helpful, charming and very hospitable. I had extended discussions with Nickolai about not many things being open and probably better co-ordination of tourist services that co-insides flights and tourists. Despite bad weather and not many tours, etc. available, the hotel staff and owners helped us in best possible way to make the best of our Chania vacation.

Pros:
1. Free shuttle to/fro to the city centre every 30 mins, from (10:30-00:00)
2. Clean and modern rooms
3. Awesome view
4. Amazing Staff
5. Huge food portions at restaurant
6. Large balcony in the room.

Cons (Nothing really, but if I were to be critical):
1. Breakfast buffet could have been better for 8EUR
2. Bathroom were small, compared to room size, but still acceptable.

Would absolutely recommend this place and would visit again. Loved Chania, Greek hospitality and food.

Room Tip: Take sea facing rooms for breath taking views of the city. The mountain facing rooms will give you a...

I try to stay here every time I go to Crete. The view is the best in town, the restaurant is superb and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast is good but the dinner menu is what keeps me coming back. Cretan food is so much better than Greek food. Don't worry about a view, every room has one!

Room Tip: Get a room away from the restaurant. The marble walls really transmit the noise. The northeast si...

I had a blast when I stayed at this hotel. It's not a bad cab ride back from the clubs/bars at night. The staff was friendly, food excellent and I hope to make this trip again in 2015. Conveniently located.

I have been staying at this hotel for many years and enjoy my stay every time. My favorite meal in the world happens to be at the hotel restaurant (bekri meze). The rooms have upgraded there mattresses which were long over due and the AC works great. The view, pool, and restaurant makes this hotel the best in Chania!

I went with my friends and everything was great : the food, pools, location of the hotel, room view and the staff were amazing and very welcoming. As soon as we arrived at 7am we were allocated to our rooms. The room had everything you needed. At breakfast the food was fantastic and very delicious. Every day our room was cleaned .
This was my best experience on Greek island, I had a fantastic holiday and would recomend this hotel to anyone.
