Madonna Studios
Reviewed June 20, 2013

This hotel is AMAZING!!! there is not enough adjectives to describe the great time me and my family had at Madonna studios. We got there pretty late at night and Ms.Thomais patiently waited for us and even volunteer to pick us up in case we needed it . When we got there even though it was very late she took her time to show us our beautiful, spacious room, and helped us we everything we needed. She even had a home-made pie and cookies waiting for us and made home-made ice cream for us! the room was very beautiful, with a very nice view, and two patios where we had our home made greek breakfast served next morning.The hotel is very clean and cozy and is perfectly located close to all you need to see in Chania. If you are going to Chania don't think twice ! you won't regret staying at this hidden gem!

Had a great stay at the Madonna Studios. Conveniently located in the heart of the Old Town of Chania. Our hostess was adorable and spoiled us with yummy homemade treats. Will definitely consider a return visit to this charming little studio.

We spend three nights during april 2013 at one of the charming appartments managed by Ms. Tomais. The appartments are all really charming; everything was carefully and comfortably arranged and Ms Tomais is taking care of each wish of her guests - a special experience and a wonderful setting for a visit to the lovely town of Chania. We did some hiking in the surrounding and she arranged quickly a taxi...or she served fresh homemade cake when we arrived. Homemade breakfast is not included in the price, but can be ordered additionally.
We can also recommend Madonna Studies because of its lovely setting in an old part of the town. You cannot enter this part of the town by car, but you may find a parking only few minutes to walk away, so its no problems at all. Madonna studies is for everybody who searches an individual and charming place in the old town centre of Chania, to be explored by foot (not really suitable for handicaped people). Charming restaurants are nearby, but we can recommand the vegetarian restaurant of to Stachi at the other end of the harbor, a bit hidden from normal tourist routes, but really worth a visit because of its authentic home made Cretan food.

Ok ive never been to Chania before but i had excellent travel companions who had, and found this place in a minute. you may struggle at first but its quite easy once you have walked around the old town in 1 day you start to familarise yourself with all the amazing little streets, lets not forget the cats. but we are here to talk about the madonna studios, we found this place on the internet, and really didnt have much of an idea how amazing it was until we arrived and saw its beauty, in something like 800+ yr old building is a 5 room studio apartment of truely wonderful appeal. the host was kind and couldnt do enough for us, sometimes a little too much but thats the greek way. dont be in a rush is all i can say. enjoy the beauty of the rooms if you dont like going out. or head out for a short walk around the old town. and enjoy some of the 120+ restaurants and bars.

Room Tip: Room 5 or 3 are the best we had room 5 and 4. 5 is the complete top floor and you wont be dissapoint...

A little difficult to find. We arrived late afternoon on a Sunday when all the locals were out and parked outside the old town which is inaccessible to cars. We eventually found our host who was also looking for us. What a wonderful surprise when we arrived at the Studios . So convenient in the beautiful old Venetian town. The studios were spotlessly clean, Lovely rooms and a beautiful terrace where Thomais served us breakfast every morning. Thomais had made a fresh apple pie for us. She even did the washing for us. We booked for 3 nights and stayed 4.
Just a short walk to a lovely restaurant at the top of the street and also to the harbour. A lovely place to stay with plenty of atmosphere. Thoroughly recommend and would definitely stay again if we visited Crete.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor at the front. the balcony looked onto the court yard. No lift but s...

Madonna Studios is such a great find! We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it.
Location was excellent- in the heart of Chania town, close to everything but very quiet both day and night.
The rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Very simple and homey.
The best thing about Madonna studios, however, is the owner/host, Thomais, and her incredibly warm welcome and hospitality. She was very friendly and accommodating, and was always ready to help. It felt more of a home than a hotel or B&B, and we were often greeted with unexpected food (apple pies, biscuits, fried goat's cheese, orange juice, etc).
We will no doubt be returning to Madonna studios the next time we go to Crete!

Away from the busy streets of Chania you find this lodge in a narrow street in the old town of Chania. It offers discrete luxury, quiet location and a lot of charm. It's a five minutes walk from the nearest parking, which is near the seafront. This is a place for those who prefer small, romantic B&B's or hotels.

Room Tip: The best rooms are on first and second floor. But the room on ground floor is nice as well with dir...
