The owners contacted us prior to our booking to find out when we'd be arriving. They were there when we arrived and checked us in quickly. The room was very small but adequate. We arrived late at night so we got straight out and explored the town. We fell in love with Chania almost immediately. We were awoken the next morning by the daylight coming through the curtains and we soon realised what lay behind them.....what has to be one of the most incredible seafront views from any hotel in the world ever..including those in Dubrovnik. The harbour is just absolutely stunning and to wake up and look out at that was mind blowing. The apartment itself offered everything we needed (air con, strong wifi signal). Also they have a deal with the cafe next door so you can get a full English breakfast for 5 euros each and it's worth paying because you can sit out and enjoy the view whilst you eat. The best part of Chania lays behind the apartment in the old town. The food in the restaurants is better quality and value and no-one heckles you to come in, unlike on the harbour. I don't know why restaurent owners have to do this because it's obvious the ones that don't are busiest.
On checkout we told the lady who manages the apartment that we had a hire car to pick up and we asked for directions. She told us it was a 20 minute walk and therefore she could get them to bring the car to us. We had no idea that was possible but she phoned them up and within an hour the car was waiting at the Harbour for us (Sunny Car Rental) .
We can't wait to return to Chania next year but we'll probably go in Spring when it's slightly cooler as we like to do a lot of walking in the day and that's hard work when it's 35C! However it's not hard work laying on a beach (15 minute walk from the apartment) and sea bathing in that temperature!
