    There are many reasons for liking the hotel, however, the two main ones are: first, the hotel is located in a spectacular place, in front of a beautiful beach surrounded by all needed facilities (E.G., shops, restaurants). Second, the hotel personnel makes the experience enjoyable. They are very nice and helpful.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location - practically on the beach, with good restaurants around and 10-15' walk from the Old Harbour. The room was comfortable, quiet, with a balcony facing the sea. Good breakfast.

    All of the staff was very nice and helpful. We got in very late our first night and we were met by Michael who was very nice and gave us our keys and quickly sent us up to get some much needed sleep. The next morning, we missed breakfast, yet were served with a smile. Very nice staff! The owner was great and even suggested a trip to the West coast of the island, which was a big hit. Clean and comfortable rooms with A/C and private bathrooms. Make sure to ask for sea view as the view of the ocean and the sunsets are amazing! Hotel is right across the street from the sandy beach with crystal clear water. Makes going for a quick swim very easy. Close to a lot of great inexpensive restaurants and the old harbor with all the shopping. Even though the hotel is on a small one way street, we never had any problems finding parking even when the beach was busy. At night, the area was quiet and felt safe. Hotel has an elevator as well. I can’t say enough about the staff of the Danaos, they were all great. Thumbs up Michael!

    Nothing. Wish I could have stayed longer. Can't wait to come back.

    the proximity to beach and walking distance to chania township. many restaurants in the area to choose from.

    Directions to get to the hotel were not available and very difficult to find for first time travellor.especialy if driving-the police escorted me after i asked for directions.Just as well i spoke greek! breakfast --very basic, ie no fruit which was in season! internet was only available in lobby area and intermitent. know where you want to visit and then ask staff for directions do not expect information to be volunteered.

    The location, walking distance to the limani across the road from the beach. All else good.

    The room view or lack thereof... Next time it would have to be a sea view.

    The location is good , 10 mins walk from the old town. There is a beach right in front of the hotel , which is really good.

    There was not hot water and the bathroom was awfull. There were not curtains and the sun was shinning all day in the room
