We have just returned from Chania having spent a week at the Creta Elena, and we loved it. Contrary to some of the reviews on here, we found the owners and staff truly welcoming and delightful, the rooms, bedding and towels were all extremely clean, the air conditioning worked well, and the pool and gardens are beautiful. We had a really lovely, relaxing time and were well looked after. The shower/bath is small and the spare bed was hard, but those are the only criticisms we would make. Also, it is just a ten minute walk from the centre of Chania, so you get the best of both worlds: peace and quiet away from the noise of the old town late at night but it is just a few minutes walk away from the centre (I note that one review says it is 30 minutes walk, but I can only think that they have difficulty walking or can't use a map!). All in all, it was great, and we plan to go back. Highly recommended.
