“Atmospheric, comfortable, great location, lovely owner!”
Reviewed November 1, 2010

My girlfriend and I stayed at Silde in October and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We booked the top room for a couple of nights and ended up adding an extra night in the room on the first floor. The top floor room is quite a hike up the stairs but well worth it for the views from the balcony which looks out over Chania (also a perfect spot for a peaceful, sunny breakfast). It is clean, comfortable and traditional traditional lodging. The room on the first floor was also great - a smaller balcony put you more in the street but this was almost more fun than the top floor.

As other reviewers have noted, Silvia is a lovely host who is excpetionally friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble and her cakes are ace.

I could not imagine a better location - you are just a few steps from the harbour and parking is a 5 minute walk away.

Places like Silde deserve all the success they get!

Silde's owner Silvia welcomed us like family during our second stay. We were late booking, as usual, so only the ground floor studio was available. Despite our concerns over noise we slept well - the air-conditioning works well so you can close the windows which keep out most of the noise. The airco is placed above the living room section so it does not blow on in bed - the usual thoughtfulness you find at Silde. We were struck again by how well equipped the apartments are - really nothing missing. The advantage of the ground floor is you use the table and chairs (with umbrella, of course) on the street as the locals do and begin to become part of the street scene, sharing a kalimera with the local residents. Soon we had all the many windows and the door open to the world - just had to remember modesty when leaving the shower. Wifi worked a treat. Terrific value. Thanks again Silvia.

I can only agree with the other glowing reviews. The owner is helpful and friendly, well located in the old town near to everything, comfotable and with all you need for a short stay. The owners suggested restaurants are excellent. Cannot fault this for a home away from home feel.

There is no need to write anything more than what has already been written in all the other reviews. The rooms are very clean, simple but very functional. There is no view of the sea but the location of the hotel is an ideal starting point for all of your walks in the city of Chania. The public parking was just a few meters away,so bringing a car is also convenient. We could also have breakfast simply by walking 20 seconds away from the hotel.
Sylvia (the owner) was very helpful and provided everything we needed.
Indeed a great place!

We stayed here for 12 nights in early April 2010 and have nothing but praise for the large family apartment. We are a family of 4 and our children are aged 7 and 9. The apartment is very clean and tidy and very child friendly and is situated in a quiet off street from the main alleyway. We have been pleasantly suprised with the whole experience as we booked on the internet without seeing it but were persuaded by other reviewers comments. Sylvia is lovely and is not too overbearing but does look after you if you allow her to, we were the beneficiaries of home made biscuits and fresh avocados from her husband's farm.↲↲Would highly recommend this place and will be booking here next time we come to Crete.

This is going to be a glowing review. For the record, I am not the owner, Sylvia, writing a phoney testimonial and am not related to her, though after being her guest it is hard not to consider her a friend.

The only fault that we two fusspots could find with Silde Apartments was an electric hob that would not simmer gently enough for my pasta sauce - the wondeful Sylvia replaced it immediately.

It is rare to find a holiday apartment where everything you need is at hand and in good condition - kitchen roll, soaps, pc connection, mosquito zapper, pots and pans that have not been sctratched to nothingness, lamps where you need them, airco, a decent shower, adequate storage and shelving, extra pillows....

Syliva has put a great deal of thought into providing everything her guests could want and checks to make sure there is nothing missing. She is there to help and does so with genuine care - no fawning or fluttering around you - you are her guests and she is there to make sure you lack nothing and she does that in a businesslike but friendly manner.

The apartment itself was simple and charming with plenty of light and wooden slatted blinds all round, adequate seating for us to relax in the evening and a balcony overlooking a pleasant corner, like a little square, where local grannies chat and greet you as you enter and leave. A corner shop for provisions, a newspaper shop, parking for your car and the old harbour are all within 3 minutes' walk.

My only reservation in writing this is it might contribute to Silde's popularity and make it harder for us to get a room with our usual last-minute habits. But then Sylvia and Antonetta who supports her deserve the accolade.

I stayed 7 days in the silde studios in the august. The apartments are very nice, clean and closed by the Old harbour of Chania. The owner Sylvia was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We would recommend this as a great place to stay.
