“Lovely, but could be a quieter”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I agree with the other reviewers - the breakfasts in the courtyard were great; the hosts were pleasant and helpful; the hotel is in a terrific location 5 minutes from the harbour.

Our room was large and charmingly decorated.

We were on the second floor facing the road and, unlike Angel A, we did not find street noise a problem - there were shutters and we always wear earplugs when traveling. Our problem was the poor internal soundproofing. The woman in the room next door, who I believe is a long-term resident, had a hacking cough and it almost sounded like she was in our room. I was woken constantly during the night, despite my earplugs, and what would have been a 5 star rating consequently dropped to 4 star - I was almost tempted to make it 3, so irritating was the noise. The owners really need to think about improving the interior sound-proofing.

An excellent family run boutique hotel in a converted Venetian town house. Just 8 bedrooms. The most extensive breakfast taken in their lovely courtyard. After this you don't need to eat anything for the rest of the day.

The brothers who run the hotel are both charming and helpful. Many guests from other countries including Sweden, France, Germany, and Canada

A few minutes walk from the harbour, as well as the market and shops. The hotel is located on one of the roads in the old town and is quite narrow and does get busy.

Well worth staying and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

We were in Chania in September 2010. We spent a night at this hotel because we wanted to check out the lovely town. The hotel is within walking distance to the town and the lovely venetian style harbor. As the road outside the hotel is narrow, we had to unload the bags a lil further up and was lucky to find street overnight parking with some assistance from the hotel staff.

3 of us shared a loft room and it was spacious enough. Breakfast was in a little patio/ garden at the back of the hotel on the ground floor. We were surrounded by plants and flowers and it was lovely. Cooked breakfast was lovely.

All in all a nice hotel to start our visit in Crete.

I've been to Chania more times that I can count on 2 hands, and stayed at Splanzia 3 or 4 times now. A stay here MUST accompany any visit to Crete! Beautiful calming rooms, roof top views, fantastic location (don't miss 1821 square), an atmospheric few minutes walk to the centre, breakfast to die for (raved about for months after our return)! Ioannis and Nikos, and the rest of the family, are brilliant, charming hosts. Don't miss this gem before it becomes impossible to get a room in!

Room Tip: They are all beautiful...

Breakfasts were fantastic and location is good. However, the beds/mattresses were old, hard and creaky. We had a second floor room facing the road and it was noisy. Sleep quality was poor. The room was dark and the bathrooms were small. We wanted to cut short our stay by a day (3 nights to 2) and asked Nikko to help place the room on the market. He was not helpful. We love Crete and will definitely return soon but unfortunately we will not be staying at the Splanzia.

Everything was execellent. Perfect location (access to old town as well as shopping centre on foot), nice clean rooms, lovely breakfast (including traditional Cretan delicacies), very very friendly people. They went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. We had fresh fruit in our room. We shall definitely stay there again if we visit Chania again.

Yannis and Nickos,2 young,gentile and very friendly owners of this quaint and hospitable little hotel truly contributed to make our stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Their outstanding breakfasts in the hotel's courtyard amazed us and their hospitality even more.
The only complaint,the mattresses need to be upgraded.That would complete the almost perfect conditions of this wonderful little hotel.
