Still the same amazing family running the place and still as beautiful as ever. No there are no bells and whistles but if you want to live amongst the Greeks this is the place to stay. Also great location with easy 10 mins stroll to the old port and plenty of restaurants to eat at right next door to the...

The location is very close to a beautiful square of Chania, and in a walking distance from the old port. The rooms were very clean and we felt like staying at home. I would definitely suggest this hotel for a couple or a family.

We had a great stay here. The air conditioned rooms are great if you want to buy drinks and snacks as they have cooking facilities but a welcome fridge. The rooms are spacious and clean. What more can you want. Just a 10-15 min walk to the harbour worked really well for us as there was also ample free parking....

A very nice 7 night stay at the Creta Elena. We stayed in a well equipped studio apartment on the ground floor. The studio was nice and clean, had a kettle & shower curtain and a safety deposit box included in the room. The whole place is tidy & well maintained. Next door is a Supermarket, cake shops, gyros grill...

We booked this last-minute for a one night stay for our family of 6. The hosting family were very friendly and helpful and made our (short) stay superb. The accomodation is everything you'd need (although if staying for a while, the cooking facilities are limited). Lovely shared pool. There is street parking directly outside and a large supermarket next door....

A great advantage is the location - very near Chania's port. The building itself was very nice, however the rooms were not that very satisfying. We didn't spend much time inside, so it was ok, however the bathroom was very old and uncomfortable (a bath, not a shower) and the whole room had a very unpleasant smell. It was also...
