Fabulous 8.8 From 62 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
We had a nice size room with access to a shared patio with a view of the harbor, sea, and light house though a door onto the patio. The patio had chairs and small tables as well as lounge chairs - perfect for relaxation. a nice simple breakfast was included and the management was friendly and helpful.

Very happy with our stay
Captain Vasilis is a great choice in Chania. Their location is excellent, with great views of the harbor and located in the prettiest part of the old town. The owner was very helpful with trip and restaurant recommendations. The room was very comfortable and we really appreciated the good shower. Highly recommend this hotel.

Wonderful host and location!
Captain Vasilis was the perfect location for our stay in Chania. We stayed in the room with access to the roof terrace, and we loved being able to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the gorgeous scenery of the harbor. Our host was so gracious and helpful during our stay. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was furnished well in order to maximize the size of the room. Chania was a great location for us to stay and be able to drive around during the day to various other places on the west side of Crete. This was the first stop for us on our trip in Greece, and at the end of our trip, my husband and I both agreed that Captain Vasilis was our favorite place to stay (even though we stayed in more upscale hotels on other islands). I would absolutely love to stay here again!

Stay here
This was by far our favourite part of the trip. The hotel is beautiful and wish we could have spent more days there. Perfect hotel, perfect location!

Superb Stay
This was an exceptional place. Vasilis was so lovely and full of great advice for around the area and very accomodating. The rooms are so beautiful and the breakfast was superb (with freshly squeesed orange juice nad home made jam). The location is excellent and there is an outdoor area with an amazing view of the Venetian harbour....great for basking in the sun. It is a 2 minute walk from the harbour, however the street that it is on is lovely and quiet. The room we stayed in had an amazing view of the harbour and we will definietly be staying here again if we go back to Chania.

Exceptional 10.0
We spent a wonderful week. The hotel is very cosy. The owner Vasili was always very friendly and helpful and ready to advise us about trips and interesting excursions. The hotel itself is situated in the picturesque old city. The old harbour lies just around the corner where one find an extensive variety of restaurants where you can taste authentic Cretan cuisine and enjoy the beautiful view of the harbour scenery with the lighthouse. Would definitely recommend it.

Perfect little gem in Chania
It was a dark and stormy night and we arrived late. The owner (the grandson of Captain Vasilis) waited up for us to arrive. We got in and collapsed to our bed to the sound of wind and rain on the windows. It was not until we opened the shutters the next morning that our room had a perfect view of the Chania waterfront! When going downstairs, we were greeted to a light breakfast of bread, pastries, yogurt, honey and an egg.The room was comfortable, but did have its quirks. The bathroom was long and skinny and my knees literately touched the opposite wall when I sat on the toilet. This was a minor inconvenience to the location, comfort and hospitality of the hotel.

Good 6.0
L’établissement est bien situé, le personnel très gentil, petit déjeuner intéressant, mais la chambre du rez-de-chaussée sent l’humidité.
