Good location but the rooms and bathrooms were really small. For 18€/pers, you could find other places which are better! The cleanning was not done. Positive point: you could have access to a shared terrace and you could use the washing machine for free

I am a little late to giving this review, as our trip was in mid-late-December 2011. We stayed for a week in Chania after a few days in Athens. We had our son (toddler) with us, staying on the top floor of Lena's. The room was not the biggest for three of us, but it was not a problem. The...

We stayed at Pension Lena on two nights at either end of our one week trip in Crete. Whilst always being passing ships in the night, as we were coming in late / leaving early in the morning, Lena was flexible and accommodating. The rooms were clean, nicely furnished with everything you need and the location is great, right in...

We walked from the bus station and Pension Lena is easy to find despite being in the beautiful old part of the city. It's a charming old, (very vertical) house with well designed updates. The room was large with a in-suite bathroom, (albeit without a shower curtain and though it pains me to say it, there was no hot water...

My old favourite Chania stop is now constantly booked so I am seeing many other hotels and guest houses. This is perhaps my favourite of them. I stayed in a single room for one night, which was pleasant and economical, but I felt like more space and moved into a double. The room was of a good size and full...

We stayed in one of Lena's houses for a week in June 2012. It was a lovely house and Lena herself is very friendly and informative. She also ordered our taxi for us when we left for the airport at the end of the week, which was much appreciated. We can highly recommend both Chania and Lena.

I spent a week with Lena in her accommodation. Firstly she is a lovely lady, very friendly, helpful and genuinely interested in her guests having a comfortable time. She takes the time to talk to you and assist in any way she can which is important. Her accommodation was in a lovely central Chania location close to shops, bars and...

I discovered Chania on a very brief stop over a few years ago and have wanted since to come back and see if what I felt then, that I might like to make somewhere like Chania, the "Venice of the South', a second home, was real. I have had the opportunity now to do that, finding Pension Lena by accident...

We have stayed with Lena several times, in the pension itself and also in two of the other houses she has to rent. Everything is very central and easy to reach no matter which property you stay in. They are decorated in a typical cosy fashion - no modern minimalistic cold feel ! Friendly helpful service from Lena herself. Read...

This is very tough to write because all the rest are good reviews and I don’t want to be that fussy snob who smashes the place so I’ll put it all out there and u decide for yourself. I didn’t personally meet Lena but my husband said she is lovely. She is very helpful and left us a note as...
