We needed a hotel in Chania for two nights at the end of a fortnight in Crete because we were flying out of Chania airport. We wanted to be in the midst of the Venetian old town, near the harbour and accessible by car just to drop off the luggage. El Greco appeared to fit all these requirements and so we booked on line.
It was easy to find by car and we were able to stop within 20 meters to drop off our suitcases. Free municipal parking was available within easy walking distance and we left the car there.
The hotel was in the ideal location for us; our room was rather basic but we didn't intend to spend much time there. The shower hose leaked like a sieve but the manager changed it for a new one asap. The room looked into the narrow, busy street below and there was a great view from the roof terrace if you want to see the harbour while sipping a cool beer.
Very friendly and helpful staff and an interesting breakfast in the street added to our enjoyment.
Interestingly, we had planned to drop off the hire car in Chania town as we didn't need it for the last two days; in the event, it was cheaper to keep the car and drop it off at the airport on departure thus paying an extra two days hire charge but avoiding a drop off charge for the town, and a taxi fare out to the airport. We hired from Greenways in Remythnon at 20 Euros a day all in.
