Amazing people, probably the most polite stuff I have seen in a hotel. Beautiful, nicely decorated, clean rooms. Great Location, in the heart of the Old Town. Breakfast could be slightly better but the overall picture of the hotel is flawless.

It was our first time to Crete (Chania). The welcome by the staff was great. Nothing was an effort. They looked after us and when we asked to change rooms due to my wife' s knee problems, they were responsive and accommodating. Hotel has a lovely feel and is well situated.

Visiting the old city in Chania is a must. Very very nice...so stay near main area yet in a quiet place. The building very old, lots of history, yet rooms are fine. Yes small and not elevator, but great.

You can't beat the location of this hotel, just steps from the waterfront and in the middle of all the charming old city. Our "maisonette" on the top floor was essentially a small "duplex" with the sitting area and bathroom on the first level and the bedroom - almost a loft really, except you can stand upright in it -...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our Hotel, an imposing, tall, 600 year old building, has gathered a rich history over the passing of the centuries. During the days of Turkish Rule, the building housed members of high ranking Turkish military who made many changes to the buildings architecture - even built a Hamam.In the garden and next to that, a room to secure their slaves (where you can still see the metallic rings nailed to the walls). In the beginning of the 19th Century, the building was used as a French embassy and later was inhabited by the great Greek political figure, Eleftherios Venizelos, who also used it as his political offices until his move to Athens, when he took power as Prime Minister of Greece. The Hotel has 10 beautiful rooms - the 2 of which are maisonettes - fully restored and traditionally decorated to provide our guests with an especially warm and welcome feeling. All rooms have modern conveniences (WC, telephone, TV, mini-bar, air-conditioning and Central Heating in winter) ensuring our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. ... more   less
