The hotel is in a perfect spot. Right on the front of hethe sandy town beach. out of the bustle and crowds of the venetian harbour but only 10-15 minute walk away. It is the perfect spot to go for a swim then sit on the terrace and people watch. There are nearly always spaces for the car and it...

The hotel is in a very good location, opposite the sea. There was plenty of parking space available (at least in the beginning of october..) The staff were ready to help you with anything. The rooms were basic, the beds were a little too hard, and the pillows not so comfortable. The breakfast was ok concerning variety, though i would...

We stayed in Danaos 5 days - hotel has perfect location: next to a very quiet beach and within a walking distance to Venetian Port. There are some very good tavernas next door. Very nice people working in the hotel, very helpful. Good breakfast in the morning. Rooms are OK, we don't watch TV so we didn't mind the a...

We really loved our time in Danaos. The staff was nice and the room and toilet always clean. The location is indeed perfect: in front of a very nice beach and near great restaurants. 15 minutes walk to get to the old venetian harbour. Our holidays there were a delight and very affordable. We stayed in a room with city...

The location of this hotel cannot be beat as it is perfectly situated to old town Chania and the beach is across the street! Enjoy your breakfast (or in my case morning cig and beer) on the patio out front and listen to the sound of the waves. After that just grab a towel (beach towels provided by the hotel)...

We spent the first nights of our trip. The room was nothing special but the location had a great beach and is walking distance to the old Venetian harbor and really great breakfast option. Staff was very friendly. We rented car and always found parking right in front on street.

If you are looking for a clean, friendly, and convenient place to stay on the beach, then this hotel is perfect for you. The location is fantastic and a short 10-second walk to the beach. We had 2 sea view rooms with balconies. The rooms were spacious enough for us and our stuff. The room had controllable air conditioning and...
