Directions

 

Coming to the Hotel from the Airport

Once you are at the airport all you need to do is to follow the signs which lead you to Chania city. In the city go straight on Eleftheriou Venizelou Street and it will bring you to the municipal market. Once on Chatzimichali Giannari Street go straight and at some point this street becomes Skalidi Street. Go along it and turn right onto Piraeus Street which will take you straight to the sea. Turn right and go for about fifty meters until you come to the free parking lot of Talo Square. This square is the nearest to our Hotel. Do not ignore the designating parking spaces for residents. The Old Town of Chania is in its entirety considered a monument. For this reason driving and parking are restricted but taxis are allowed to bring you to the entrance until 11 am. You can walk to the Hotel since it is only 300 m from the parking area or we could gladly make arrangements to accompany you to the Hotel upon your request.

Coming from the Venetian Harbour in the Old Town to our Hotel

Arriving to our Hotel is easier from the Venetian Harbour especially if you are carrying luggage. With Talos Square behind you, the sea is on your left and Firka Fortress on your right. Walk along the Venetian Harbour which is also known as Kountourioti Coast. As you approach the centre of the Harbour you will see our Hotel.

 

The town of Chania, in Crete

Being the second largest city on the island of Crete, Chania is also the local government region (municipality) also bearing its name. The city is situated on the north coast of Crete with Rethymno on the west at a distance of 60 km (37m) followed by the city of Heraklion  at 135 km (84m). The “Venice ofthe East” is how the city is referred as since it is divided into two parts: the larger modern part and the old town. The old harbor port surrounds the oldtown which is the basis of the development of the whole urban area and the modern city. Dating back to 1538 the old town was surrounded then by Venetian fortifications, unfortunately only parts of the eastern and western remain today. The city has to narrate a long but unique history since it went through a Minoan settlement, the Roman, followed by the Byzantine, the Arab, the Venetian and last the Ottoman era. Having experienced various revolts, Crete finally reunited with Greece in 1913. Two other important chapters of the Cretan history are also the 2nd World War and the Battle of Crete. And last but not least is the nature, the culture and of course the hospitality of the residents of Chania where so much can be said but not in a simple paragraph. This is something that you can experience for yourself. Enjoy your holiday in our city!
