Helpful and friendly staff. Good position right on the beach. 10 to 15 minutes walk to the old town. Rooms are clean and have fridge, TV, aircon/heating and kettle on request. Quite a substantial buffet breakfast available for a little extra. I stayed 3 days, then went hiking, then returned for another 3.

We stayed at the Danaos for 4 nights and had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The sea view room was excellent and the complimentary breakfast was a bonus. The hotel staff were really friendly and would go out of their way to assist when asked. Only criticism is that the rooms are now dated and could do with a major...

I've stayed in a four-bed room at Danaos Hotel for five days. It is a nice, peaceful hotel with friendly staff. The greatest advantage of the hotel is its location, next to an organised beach and very close to the old harbour in Chania (approximately 15-20 min walk). There are also many restaurants and tavernas near it with great food....

My friend and I have just spent a week at the Danaos Hotel which we thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were extremely friendly and hospitable. The location of the hotel was perfect as it was a stones throw away from the beach and approximately 15 minutes walk to the old town of Chania. The hotel itself was very clean and good...
