Only 40 minutes from Chania airport, a relatively small complex. Spotlessly clean, excellent swimming pools for all ages, well maintained. Lovely breakfast room, with good choice of buffet breakfast. Light, airy bar with friendly staff. Spotlessly clean apartments, tastefully planned in lovely well cared for garden settings. Beware you have to pay supplement for air conditioning and safe.

Room tip: Go for first floor overlooking gardens.

We were not originally going to stay here but the hotel we were looking for was full and recommended Kasteli. They had a studio which was excellent with everything you could want apart from a TV. The room was clean and tidy and the price was reasonable with the addition of private parking which was important in that area. It is also in a great location, handy for the port and all its restaurants and old town, give it a try.

I picked Kasteli more or less at random but I'm so glad that I did. The reasons that this is the place you should stay are:

1) Location. It is exactly centrally located to everywhere you would want to be in Chania, including being only steps from the harbor. However, since it is on the hill in a courtyard it manages to be surprsingly quiet. After seeing the chaos in most of the harbor and adjacent areas I realized how much I lucked out by picking the quietest possible place that was still very close to everything/

2) The kitchenettes. At least my room, and probably all of them, have a refrigerator, sink, hot plate, and dishes and silverware. This is perfect for having breakfast at the place and storing your restaurant leftovers.

3) The owner, Alex, will help you do anything you need, including renting a car. He has a small parking area which they will deliver the cars to and pick them up from. He's also always happy to make coffee, and it is real coffee, fresh ground and in a french press, not the terrible stuff they are mostly serving around town.

Of course this is not the place to stay if you want free massages, a free continental breakfast, room service, a doorman and all of that, but for the more independent yet discerning traveler it is exactly what you want.

Definitely worth of recomending to stay at Chania. Comfortable and cozy apartments, decorated woth local taste - meeting a three star hotel standards. The owner speaks good English and is always eager to help or to have a short chat about local turistic particulars. The partments located very near to the port and main restaurat court of Chania.

We stayed in a studio run by Alex for 9 nights and would thoroughly recommend all of his properties in the courtyard, plus the pension just around the corner, where his office is located. A great welcome and attentive service was standard. Alex was very efficient, making sure everything was OK. The Studio was very clean and the right size for 2 people. WiFi was excellent.

It's true, you are only 2 mins walk from the busy harbour front but the courtyard is silent! A great night's sleep will be guaranteed, and I'm a light sleeper!

Tavernas on the harbour are great, but touristy. Head south a street or two and eat with the locals.
