I am enjoying the Porto Del Colombo in Chania even as I write these words. Before coming to Chania I had fears connected with my veeeeery late arrival (02:00 in the morning), knowing that the reception was open until 22:30 in the evening. But everything with finding the keys was well organized. The hotel is really old - not only full of history, located in the old town of Chania, perfect location, very close to the "limani". It has the flair of getting old as a Cathedral - clean, a little bit dark, smelling at old laces and herbs, but cosy.
The rooms have the most needed. The fridge was a little bit noisy.
Rula from the reception was (and still is) very helpful in finding place for parking the car, finding the good beaches nearby, finding a tasty food in restaurants, offering "karameles":). In the restaurant - tasty food, the most amazing fresh orange juice, home made delicacies. Great time in Chania!
- 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
