    Superb

    Right on the beach, with the best restaurants around it. Walking distance from the famous port. Great, helpful staff. All around great.

    If you are wanting to get a beach front view you must request it, the same goes for if you want a single big bed instead of two small ones. If you hold the room with a credit card do not use an American Express Card! Despite excepting it on their website, the hotel cannot charge it once you are going to pay your bill.

    The hotel has great location hjust in front of the beach and about 10 min walk from the Venitian harbor and the center. The room is big.

    The bathroom wasn't comfortable, lack of the curtain made all the floor wet and there were leakage from somewhere.... The air conditioner made a bit noise so we had to open the windows, for those who can't sleep with noise- check that as you enter the room. The mattress was too hard for us.

    Good location, just 15' from Chania port

    The sheet of our bed had hair, the A/C was not working, there was no shutter on the window and the sun was shining all day in the room, all the stuff in the room was quite old (maybe from '70s)

    Guest rating

    It was near the beach, and walkable to the city. Staff were okay to deal with.

    No shower curtain. Poorly flushing toilet. Toilet was not clean when we arrived. No option to refuse room cleaning, so our room was entered during the day while we were out whether we liked it or not. Was expected to handover my passport for a while, should never be required for them to keep it. Odd.

    Very good

    The staff were very helpful and the hotel is right across from the beach

    The hotel has no sunbeds on their stretch of the beach so you have to rent beds from the next hotel. It would be so nice if they had beds for their guests

    Fabulous

    Very good value with breakfast. Our flight was delayed 6 hours so we arrived in the middle of the night, the hotel staff at Danaos stayed up to give us the keys for our room. Great location at the beach! Close to the bus station for buses to other places in Crete. Also great to have Air conditioning included in the price!

    The breakfast was very simple, could be a lot better. Hard beds and the bathroom was not that nice, the shower didn't even have a shower curtain. But considering the price the hotel was good for staying there one night as we did.

    Its proximity to the beach was its biggest advantage. It was also within easy walking distance to Chania Harbour.

    It was not the cleanest hotel that I have stayed in. The staff were not very friendly in general although there were exceptions to this.

    Guest rating

    Very good location, close to the city centre but quiet enough.

    Poor room condition, towels & sheets were not changed regularly (if at all).

  • 6.6
    Good

    It is near the old town (20 min walking). It was nice to stay in front of the beach and there are many mini marketings around. It is helpful.

    The breakfast could be better, offering hot/cold chocolate, and the possibility to toast the bread.

    Fabulous

    The owner of the hotel and receptionist lady were very helpful.The location of the hotel was very convenient.We could walk to the harbour and the city center easily.

    The breakfast can be better.

  • 6.2
    Good

    I liked the fact that it was across the street from the beach with plenty of restaurant's up & down the street.

    Besides the lady that cleaned the rooms the hotel staff was not friendly and the street is closed off after 8pm & all of the streets leading to hotel are one-way, in the opposite direction.
