    Modern and charming boutique hotel
    Charming, charming, charming! This boutique hotel located right in the Venetian Harbour was one of the most charming and modern hotel I have stayed in. The breakfast was good, but the people serving made it better! Great overall experience. Very, very conveniently located and not noisy! Our room wasn't.

    Perfect boutique rooms in top location
    Loved this hotel. Room & accessories all fantastic, great shower, perfect location. Only criticism would be that breakfast was slightly confusing: a very light buffet, no menu for hot food but some apparently available if you ask. No bar, but it doesn’t matter as you’re surrounded by places to eat & drink. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Felt like a secret hideaway right in the middle of the city. Have stayed in many 5* boutique hotels and the rooms here definitely deserve that description. Would happily book again.

    This place was beyond my expectation. From the design to the service. My room was like a magazine type looking. The view from the windows was magnificent. The breakfast delicious and the service perfect.

    This hotel was absolutely sensational!! We received an upgrade upon arrival. The room was huge and incredibly comfortable and the view from all the windows was amazing ! We were right in the heart of the best eateries, bars, shopping and a 10min walk to beaches. We would definitely come back to Chania and stay here again. The staff were also amazing and they met us outside the old town where the taxi dropped us off and walked us to the hotel.

    Beautiful Place / Great Location / Could Improve
    Really nice place in the heart of Old Chania Town. We had a room with a balcony facing the harbor and we were exactly centrally located so the view was very symmetrical. Overall it was a good stay. I thought the hotel was very nice but still overpriced compared to others I've stayed for the same price. If you haven't been to Old Town (Chania) be prepared to park about 0.5 miles away and have to drag your luggage through some cobble stone streets to get to the entrance and they lug them up a big flight of stairs. Not that I minded but they should have mentioned this beforehand or provided some assistance. Our room was very nice and beautifully decorated and the balcony was amazing for views and people watching. Staff was super friendly, cool, and helpful. Young with nice energy. Drawbacks include they gave us a room legitimately next to the area you have breakfast so every morning at 7am I can hear everyone eating and dishes clanking.. Did I really just spend over 400 a night for this (I was thinking). Also the bathroom had some drain issues; not clogged but slow and the floor got really wet / almost flooded a couple times. The maid didnt leave new toiletries any of the days I asked and I had to ask the front desk every day for new soap/shampoo/etc. Also, for a hotel this expensive they should get some softer toilet paper (no explanation necessary but it hurt). That being said it was a very nice place I'd stay again if the price was better
