I would recommend this hotel - the whole place was freshly painted and spotlessly clean - rooms, corridors, lobby and restaurant. The staff were excellent at all times, extremely helpful, polite and friendly. Price was surprisingly affordable for a beachfront location in such a stunning city. Easy walking distance to the tourist harbour area of Chania, yet safe and quiet at night. Anybody planning a trip to Chania, I would urge you to use this hotel - I'll be using it again in future as I had such a great experience.

We loved our stay at Hotel Danaos! It was walking distance to the old port and old city of Chania. There were plenty of places to eat close to the hotel and the view from our room was amazing.

Ottimo compromesso tra qualità e costo
Ottimo hotel proprio sul mare. Ottima accoglienza e posizione strategica per chi non si vuole spostare (spiagge a 5 passi) oppure scampagnate infinite

We will be back!
We had an amazing stay, too short but we enjoyed every minute of it. Everyone at the reception was nice, in the area there were enough parking spots, restaurants and a minimarket. We got the room with the sea view and it was simply amazing. We will be for sure back, and hopefully we will be able to stay a longer time. The hotel is 20 min walking from the Venetian harbor 😊

8/10 Very good

Three night stay in the middle of June. Located right on the beach. You can exit the water and sand across the small pedestrian boardwalk directly into the hotel. Staff was pleasant and welcoming. WiFi was excellent. Room was spacious and bed was comfortable. Shower was larger than many others in Greece. Nice balcony with two chairs and table - mine was on the backside of the building facing away from the beach. Waterfront rooms were available. Good value for the money when comparing other nearby properties. Easy 15-20 walk to the old Venetian Harbor. If you are in Chania and plan on going to the beach, this property is for you.
