“Great Hotel, great location”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

This was a great hotel, very close to the old harbour which you could easily view from the rooftop terrace. The location was perfect, right in the old town near to some quality tavernas and bars and just seconds from the venetian waterfront. The owner was a terrific guy, the decor and room was fantastic and breakfast worth the extra money. I would certainly go again and spend more time there.

Room Tip: If driving, make sure you ring up and get the address as it is outside the city walls but not too fa...

I really loved the Nostos Hotel. It is right in the heart of the action around the old harbor and lighthouse in Chania. Down one of the small alleyways throughout the old city. The place has a great deal of character and the owner is a very nice man. Breakfast is included and it was delicious! The rooms have a lot of character and the place is filled with artifacts from times gone by. The building is an old Venetian style and is right in the harbor. Though the entrance is on the charming Zambeliou street lined with shops and small restaurants.

Room Tip: Try and get a room facing the harbor. You also must know to walk down the alleyway quite a ways from...

Just had two nights here in a room overlooking the harbour. The room was beautifully decorated and had a useful fridge and a good small bathroom. The balcony was perfect for sitting out and watching the harbour in the early morning and especially at sunset. There is also a lovely roof terrace where we enjoyed a few drinks in the evening sunshine. The staff are very friendly, the hotel quirky and charming, the breakfasts just right. Inevitably there is some noise from the restaurants on the harbour front but the setting more than makes up for it.

We stayed just one night on our way home from the west. The hotel is charming with a fantastic roof terrace with views of the lighthouse. We had a family room which was at the back. It was large and well appointed. Staff were friendly and the breakfast adequate. If you book make sure you ask for a room at the front with a view

If you want lots of activity go to the water front. If you want sterile perfection go pay triple the price. This apartment comes with a kitchenette. When we tried to use the stove the fuse blew. The shower was small but a lot are in Crete. What you get is a friendly staff that will help you with phone calls, a super breakfast, reasonable rates, a great deck overlooking the harbor where you can sun yourself and read a book even in November. Great restaurants close by. It is also very quiet. If you want noise and party atmosphere go to the waterfront. If you want a great quiet location come to Nostos.

Room Tip: Great views on the upper floors.

We've stayed at Nostos several times. The hotel is very charming and has an excellent location, right on the old harbor. The staff is very friendly and breakfast is nice, we usually eat breakfast at the little tables right outside the door. Another plus is the hotel is 2 doors down from one of the finest restaurants in Chania-Tamam. Try to get a room with a balcony overlooking the harbor, it's great although a little noisier. My only complaint is that this hotel could upgrade the creature comforts. The bed mattresses are generally cheap and uncomfortable, TVs are tiny and usually don't get any channels and the showers are tiny and hard to maneuver as can be typical in Greece. Overall I would recommend this hotel but check the mattress out first.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony overlooking the harbor

We stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was overlooking the port, beautiful view. Hotel is a little hard to find and not accessible by car. Our room had a loft which made it quite spacious for 2 adults and 2 kids. The bathroom was very small and the plumbing wasn't very good. Overall nice hotel in great location.
