Porto Veneziano Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 November 2017

Right on the old Venetian Harbour in the middle of the Old city. A wonderful place to stay. Very friendly helpful staff. Lovely breakfast setting overlooking the harbour and a very very enjoyable breakfast with plenty of choice. Fabulous view and plenty of restaurants overlooking the harbour. Plenty of touristy shopping. A must to see is the Maritime Museum at the other end of the harbour. It has a whole upstairs floor dedicated to the Australian and New Zealand soldiers during WW2. Fabulous and so so interesting. Also a video of two New Zealand soldiers who returned to meet/reunite with the family that harboured them during their "on the run" time on Crete after missing the last evacuation ship leaving Sfakia.

Room Tip: A room with a balcony overlooking the harbour

A well appointed hotel with an excellent location on the Venetian Harbour with excellent balcony views. Rooms are spacious, service good and the staff very friendly. The inclusive breakfast is pretty good and the bar offers outside waterfront seating. Overall excellent value.

The hotel is located in an excellent position. Beautiful hotel with an amaizing view. Beautiful and very rich and good breakfast. Beautiful and clean rooms. The hotel is next to the ancient sea traditional museum and is also surrounded of typical Greek taberns to eat many excellent traditional foods. Along the passeggiata towards the ancient Venetian harbour, there are many open air beautiful cafes.

Magnificent hotel.
Attentive staff, cleanliness, delicious breakfasts - all very good.
The room is small, but very cozy. If it is possible to rent a room with a the sea view, then do so. The balcony offers a magnificent view of the Marina, yachts, the old lighthouse and the Venetian docks. Bonus is your personal sunset view, you can enjoy it every evening.
The hotel is located on a pedestrian promenade, so there are many traditional Greek taverns around, where you can enjoy coffee during the day, and dinner in the evening.
If you like to sleep with an open balcony (like me), then in the morning you can enjoy the scent of fresh baked goods and the sea, and at night listen to the sound of sea waves crashing against the pier and all these amazing sounds from small boats and yachts.
At breakfast you can taste delicious local Cretan pastries, freshly squeezed orange juice, local cheeses and Greek yoghurt from sheep's milk. The girl working at the restaurant was so kind that she told me how she called one of the local cheeses and even said where to buy it.
If the weather is good, you can have breakfast right at the table on the waterfront, by the sea. The best start to the day!
The hotel has a bar, on some evenings you can listen to live music - the piano.
In this hotel, I would gladly return again and of course recommend it to everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Porto Veneziano Hotel. The location can''t be beat and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful with lots of variety and plenty of fresh fruit. They were kind enough to pack us a complimentary picnic lunch for our hike to the gorge!! The room was a little small but was spotless and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and hope to return again!!
