Its central position, e.g. 5 min walk from central stations, banks, taxis, makes it ideal for first visit without vehicle. Especially, in the evenings, one can walk down the central road, through the old town, towards the venezian port and begin a wild night out.The hotel is old but in good condition, clean and well preserved.The service is very good, and offers a low budget stay for its prestigious position.

Very central for Old Town and very near bus station. Excellent friendly staff and spotlessly clean. Breakfast OK.

Room Tip: our rooms were on 4th floor facing towards back, very quiet and lift available - no stairs requiring...

arkadi hotel: good location, walking distance to beaches, harbour, chania town. also has supermarket 10metres away and what seems to be a 24hr everest (some fast food chain) 5 metres away. friendly and english speaking reception. breakfast adequate. room was suitable, bathroom nice and warm. however the shower water spills everywhere. ask for 401 or 501. you get only 1 neighbour and brilliant views of the mountains. there is a park opposite the hotel which seems to serve as a hangout for lots of people. room is decent size with good chanels on tv. strangely there's a curtain so no light gets in, a double glazing balcony door so no sound gets in and on top of that another shutter with slits in it so definitely no light get its.
Tellus tours: 10metres away and worthwhile doing the samaria gorge with them if you're there in season. if there is only one reason to do this, the legendary guide Tomassss is awesome.
Samaria Gorge: DO it if you can walk 16kilometres. DONT do it if you cant even do that, if you cant balance on a rock, if you're afraid of stones/heights/water/tiredness/aching calves. No one really tells you this until you're on the coach at 6.20am.
Blue Adventures diving: good cavern dives, but weather dependant.
Chania: Nice town in the off peak season.
Overall, brilliant trip. I shall be back next year but for the southern coast.

Our family spent a week at the Arkadi this summer (2 adults, 1 8 year old boy). The receptionists were so helpful with everything. Very centrally located: across the street from the main tourist area, a few blocks from the bus terminal, a 15 minute walk to the beach. We used this as our home base, while we explored other parts of the island. We also went to the nearby water park 2x, was great for son. The room was good sized, not enormous, but perfectly adequate for the 3 of us. The patio came in handy for drying clothes. Breakfast was exactly what we needed. I agree that the staff were treasures. Free computer w/internet on the mezzanine level was great, too.

I spent only one night here before departure from Chania airport back home. I can recommend this hotel not only for one-day Chania sightseeing but also for example for trip to Samaria. It has great location about 200 meters from the bus station (both airport bus and buses to Samaria ant other parts of island) and about 100 meters from the Old Town. Very friendly staff !!!!! I asked for a room in the highest floor and they gave me it. It was rather small but clean with nice new bathroom and spacious terrace with excellent views over the Old Town and even the sea. No noise from the street, I slept well. Maybe noise could be problem in some lower floors rooms facing the square but they have also silent rooms, facing the courtyard. Breakfast was good, even some hot meals like omelettes and sausages. For 54 euro really good value.
