I recently booked a room to that hotel since it was placed in the center of the "Old Town" of Chania having easy access to traditional neighborhoods and to places worthwhile to visit. The price for three nights was reasonable; 138,00€. When I arrived the woman in reception seemed to be slightly helpful; however the "best surprises" followed me the...

Dear Mrs Gratsia Eleni, I am really surprised for all of your comments! From the night that you arrived me personally answered to all of your questions regarding information for the area. At the bathroom there is space under the mirror for your personal belongings , as in all three star hotels. Photos of the showers are uploaded at Booking.com...

We stayed here for one night and I'm very glad it was only one night. Yes the hotel does have rooms that you can see the harbor from but we did not have one of these few rooms. We had a room that faced the back and it was a very basic room. The room had the waste water pipe...

The room was fine and the breakfast was great. The majority of the staff were helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, there's no soundproofing and I'm a light sleeper. Every time someone flushes toilet, I could hear the water going through the pipes in my room like it was there with me. And the noise coming from other guests - especially late...

A basic hotel, but very friendly. A bonus to have a fridge in the room. Set in a lovely street of pensions, shops and cafes. A short walk to the harbour. Breakfast more than adequate. Our room overlooked an ancient city wall? Front rooms have balconies overlooking street.

Excellent location in Old Chania, near all amenities and fantastic restaurants. Elevator accessible and Credit Cards accepted. Good small breakfast is offered. Old Chanis in general offers no parking except outside the walls near the port. The streets are filled with restaurants and walking only. Great little place. Wifi in room was weak.

It's a pretty budget hotel and experience, though the staff were pleasant enough. We only stayed one night, and it is in the heart of the old town. The room though was very rough around the edges. The breakfast wasn't great (stale cornflakes and weak instant coffee).

Wonderful little hotel in the old district of Chania. Close to everything. Very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was more than adequate, with eggs, meats, cheese, wonderfully fresh bread, etc.. Great views from the rooftop terrace. Would definitely stay again.

Booked this hotel for 3 days in July. It is in a great location in the old town, 5 minutes from the harbour but tucked away from the crowds. Good room with good aircon and a great view of ocean from the room terrace...

First of all, it's another thing to travel for business and another to travel for pleasure. Being a frequent business traveler I'm a little bias when it comes to a discount or money saving hotel. All I want is a quite room with a nice bed to sleep and a super boost breakfast. Well in el Greco I didn't find...

We really felt like the price of the room was justified when we got to the breakfast room the day after we arrived... A full, complete and traditional breakfast (with fresh orange juice!) just as we love it! One could even sit on the little tables by the street, outside of the hotel and relax while people-watching! Ideal! The rooms...
