Our favorite leg of our time on Crete. It was a great location to explore the western part of the island, with some of the major beaches (Balos, Elafonisi) at drivable distances from Chania. We also hiked Samaria Gorge, which we would definitely recommend. But the biggest surprise was how much we enjoyed the Old Town of Chania. Strolling around the Venetian Harbor was picturesque and lively, and at the end of our stay we found ourselves already trying to plan our next visit.
Great area in Chania, Crete, very good hotel. Beach is very good and very sandy, staff is very friendly, the all inclusive is well worth it unless you do not like buffet style. The ala cart restaurant has good good food but did not like to pay for drinks even for the water when I had an all inclusive package. Book third floor on the ocean side because the trees block the ocean on lower levels
I don’t understand what is special about this town. It’s crowded, dirty, loud, pricey. I came mainly for Knossos and that was completely overrated. My least favorite city in Crete so far. I could’ve done without it.
Crete is am amazing island with a very long history and many places to visit to learn about their history and to see the buildings left behind by the various civilizations who have lived there. Heraklion is situated in the center of the long and narrow island and that facilitates visiting all the interesting places in a day trip each. The people who live in Heraklion are friendly and hospitable, everyone we interacted with , and I mean everyone, spoke quite good English.
We stayed in the old section of town which has generally been updated while keeping the historic look. Most of the streets are pedestrian only, very narrow and lined with wonderful restaurants, artsy shops, and boutiques of clothing and jewelry. The merchants are very friendly and helpful whether you make a purchase or not. The area is calm and safe to walk around even late at night. We rented a car for four days and explored around the island. This was easy, fun to drive the mountain roads and see the thousands of years of history. We recommend eating at the family run Galini Restaurant which is located facing the Mediterranean Sea in the central area of the old town. Their prices are reasonable, food excellent and they always gave us extras with the comment, “ try this, it is typical Crete, no charge!”
Beautiful smaller city on the ocean with view of mountains. I liked the waterfront restaurants and the shopping areas. Easy to walk around and excellent sea food. Bigger city than I thought it would be and if I had to choose between cities in Crete then I would choose Rethymno over Chania. Rethymno is similar to Chania but about 1/2 the population.
Quiet and cosy, with a great beach and restaurants. My favorite place on Crete so far, I think. The Polifimos tavern was especially lovely — great food and vibe.
Great archaeological and Crete life museums. Wonderful old Venetian port. Good restaurants. Short bus ride to Knossos Palace. Lovely historic center. Impressive wall surrounding the historic center.
It ended up being our favorite beach. Not as promoted as the others so we didn't plan for as much time there but next time we will definitely plan for a longer stay! The best fish tavern in all of Crete is at the light house, Captain Nicholas.
we stayed at flisvos rooms and they were perfect .........had a sea front room with a balcony .......Maria the host was most helpful with all our needs .........it's a very quite beach community with clear water and clean beaches....lots of restaurants and bars ......it was our best stop of three weeks in crete.........

Loved the style and feel of this boutique hotel. Super comfortable bed and playful artistic touches. We were only able to eat breakfast one morning during our stay, but they offered an amazing amount of well-prepared food in the courtyard, including crepes/pancakes filled with chocolate and bananas. Nikos gave us good advice about restaurants and exploring surrounding areas of Crete. While I had looked at other hotels closer to the water, we found Hotel Splanzia really well situated in relation to Chania's historic district.

The staff is amazing, anything you can ask them, they are super friendly. The hostel is pretty close to the city center (10-15min by walking), but for me was 30 minutes minimum because I preferred to walked near the sea and I always stayed there for some minutes to enjoy the view. 😁 Another thing about this property is that they arrange some trips to the famous and beautiful beaches (like Ballos) in Crete since it is pretty hard to get there by yourself. The garden is really nice and you just want to spend some time there.

Best place we stayed in Crete. Really nice and homey apartment with a great balcony and heavenly bed. Very friendly owner and staff who made us feel really welcome and they have great recommendations for trips or restaurants. Loved the wonderful garden; it's peaceful and beautifully diverse with flowers and plants. Amazing breakfast and homemade drinks and foods. Very short walk to the beach. Not too massive, the place only houses a couple rooms and guests. I would love to have a place like that myself.

Family run hotel that is in a convenient location near the bus station. Crete has great bus service and it was easy to visit from Rethymno other parts of Crete. The owner, Stelios was amazing with his hospitality and he went out of his way to help us with anything that we needed. Very personable and down to earth. Pool was beautiful with a nice view of the sea, and there is a small beach area across the street from the hotel for swimming. All in all it was a great stay!

What a wonderful property. The roof deck affords an incredible view of Chania. And Magnolia gave us the VERY best recommendations for a stay! It's centrally located. Parking can be hard, but Manolis directed us to a free lot a 5 minute walk away. The place feels brand new and is beautifully designed. It was so much better than staying at a big hotel. We loved it and would stay there again! It was like having a modern luxury apartment in the middle of Crete.

Good no nonsense 'non-boutique' old school Hotel a short walk from the old Town in Chania and well placed for the bus station. Friendly staff, good breakfast, nice room, smallish bathroom, good value, a little dated but well managed and very good AC. Thankfully no bars or clubs nearby to keep you awake at night, unlike some hotels located in the old town. Recommended as a base to explore Chania on foot and Western Crete by the good local bus service

Over all, I was very impressed by the Hostel: new, modern, artistic details, the cleaness, high quality of the bed and the linens, the very friendly staffs, the location, and so on... I usually do not use hostels to travel all over the world, however, “Cocoon City Hostel” in Chania, Crete, was the best of all amongst I have experienced them recently. “Bravo!” to the owner. I would like to come back there soon, as soon as possible, indeed. Thank you very much!

This is a beautiful brand new hotel right on the water. The rooms were great and very clean, and there were always plenty of free lounge chairs at the pools and beach. Even though we were told the hotel was at full occupancy it didn’t seem like anyone was there. The staff were all very friendly and super helpful - especially Pela! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it for anyone looking for luxury accommodations in Crete!

The staff is amazing and we felt that they were genuinely happy that we were there. They were also so accommodating to our needs and helped us so much to find the best beaches and spots in Crete. We also LOVED the restaurant of the hotel. We have eaten there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We are having Dakos withdrawals.. Their homemade rose Raki was the best too. We bought some for us to bring back.

Modern Hotel, great bed, large rooms, wonderful pool, lovely staff .. one of the best places we stayed in during our trip to Crete. Kissamos is just lovely, its a small working town with not many tourists so you get a great local flavour, and its handy for days out to some fantastic beaches and brillaint mountain walks. Its our second stay here and will stay again highly Recommended
Stelios Penthouse is a gem in Rethymno Town, while you visiting Crete! Host is one of the friendliest people to meet, the apartment was stunning with a beautiful view to town and sea, only 5 min by foot to reach blue beach and the old town. It’s a must if you want to have a comfortable holidays with home feeling ! One word - amazing !!!!

It was an unbelievable modern 3 Floor Apartment that makes staying in Hotels no longer seem worth it. The view was amazing and the neighbors were super friendly. I really cannot say anything bad about this place, best place I have stayed in Crete sofar.

Yannis was very helpful in getting us checked in at 11PM. We arrived in Crete by ship which we did not know is a three hour drive to the hotel. The location is great if you want to see Balos Beach. The #1 beach in Greece and #5 in the world.

Wonderful little hotel in a perfect location right on the Venetian harbour. Everything one needs is within 2-min walk away. Good quality of beds for the price I paid. Slept like a baby. Will definitely stay here again when in Crete.

Probably the cleanest and best run hotel in all of Crete. Owners are hands on and extremely helpful, friendly and hospitable. If you don't like it here, you probably don't like the real Greece.

The pools are amazing you have to get the lower ground rooms to have direct access to the pool. And the fact that’s it’s adults only is great! The breakfast buffet options are endless, definitely coming back again! Thanks for an unforgettable stay.
