We booked this hotel last minute for a one night stay in Chania. We wanted to stay by the harbor and the reviews were good, and the price very decent. In order to reach the hotel we had to walk through many narrow streets but it wasn't too much of a hassle as everybody in this city is really helpful!...

Spent 3 nights here in mid June. Having booked the holiday last minute, many of the hotels higher up the Trip Advisor rating list were gone / fully booked. Helena Hotel still had one room left, and I'm glad I went for it. The location couldn't be better in the Old Town. Though a stone's throw away from the harbour...

We had a wonderful stay at Helena Hotel. The location is quiet, tucked away on an atmospheric side street, and our room had a beautiful view of the harbour. The bathroom was excellent and the room very comfortable. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Mr. Antonis is very hospitable. We arrived late, and after a long flight delay....

We went there in October, so end of season. We did not make any reservation and were welcomed by a nice men. We had a room on the 3rd floor, no elevator so a little climb. But what a view and such a nice room. Great price also for that location. Just a perfect hotel.

We loved our stay at Helena Hotel. My husband and I and adult son stayed in the sea view triple room on the third floor. We loved the view of the harbour from our window. There was always something happening and although the harbour area can be noisy until the early hours of the morning, we found we were just...

The hotel itself was moderate, but the setting, the owners and the experience was astonishing. Our favorite place to stay (from six hotels and Air BnBs) in Greece. Family run with the owner and his son taking the day-to-day responsibility. Owner was a gem of a man - very helpful and making us so very comfortable. Rooms were great, bathrooms...

Very warm, friendly welcome from the family of the hotel. It's our second time at the hotel and were recognised instantly and shown to our room which had a stunning view of the town and harbour. As previous, the room was spotless and very comfortable. Would highly recommend a stay at this hotel. We will be back for a third...
