We enjoyed a week at this lovely small Hotel, a delightful, historic building, our bedroom was furnished to a high standard and had six bright lovely windows. All staff were very pleasant but Voula was such an exceptional host, fresh eggs cooked at breakfast, freshly squeezed orange juice. The Hotel arranged our taxi transfer with George, he was so polite,...

Lovely old boutique hotel in the old town part of Chania. Sister hotel to the Belmondo which we have stayed in before. Our room was not as big as in the Belmondo, but it was more than adequate for just a two night stay. Breakfast was OK, but choice for us Brits was a bit limited. Sadly, no boiled eggs,...

The staff are very welcoming and the lady that does the breakfast never stops, cleaning all the rooms too. We asked for a room with a bath as I am a little closterphobic and cannot do showers... The bath was a sit up and beg bath but that was fine, the problem was NO BATH PLUG which we advised them...

I had a very pleasant stay at this charming hotel; great value for the money. Easy walking distance to everything I wanted to see/needed (like the bus station). And the customer service is fantastic. I only wish I had taken down the names of the women at the front desk; couldn't have been more helpful in getting me information to...

My wife and I stayed at The Porto del Colombo Hotel in the late 90s. Back then there was little in terms of online hotel advice. We simply took a travel book from the library and called this place from a pay phone in Athens. We hadn't made any plans where to stay in Chania, and the Frommer’s or Fodor’s...

Great value in old town. Original building. Very friendly service. Cafe, gift shops and restaurants all at your doorstep but not noisy at night. 2 min walk to harbour. We will come again and wished we had more time here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our Hotel, an imposing, tall, 600 year old building, has gathered a rich history over the passing of the centuries. During the days of Turkish Rule, the building housed members of high ranking Turkish military who made many changes to the buildings architecture - even built a Hamam.In the garden and next to that, a room to secure their slaves (where you can still see the metallic rings nailed to the walls). In the beginning of the 19th Century, the building was used as a French embassy and later was inhabited by the great Greek political figure, Eleftherios Venizelos, who also used it as his political offices until his move to Athens, when he took power as Prime Minister of Greece. The Hotel has 10 beautiful rooms - the 2 of which are maisonettes - fully restored and traditionally decorated to provide our guests with an especially warm and welcome feeling. All rooms have modern conveniences (WC, telephone, TV, mini-bar, air-conditioning and Central Heating in winter) ensuring our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. ... more   less
