Situated behind the old harbour in Chania town, this throwback to grand hotels of the past adds an element of luxury without the steep price. Large, spacious rooms and extremely friendly staff made this a pleasure to arrive in. We were initially allocated a sea view room on the top floor, but due to a technical issue, we were moved...

The hotel is pretty basic but very clean with spacious rooms. Our room had a view to the old harbor which was really extraordinary, especially in the evening. Since it's a renovated old house decorated with traditional items and photos, it really takes you back in the old times.

Traditional house, large bedroom with original features, painted ceiling, timber beams, old-style window shutters - very atmospheric with views onto the rambling street below where kids were playing and the older people were sitting outside. Modern features have been added - wifi, tv, air conditioning, fridge. Breakfast was simple but fine, served in the ground floor reception room of the...

The fridge door did not close,...

The hour was waining & I was tired from driving when I arrived at Chania Old Town. Armed with my travel guide I first asked about rooms at the nice looking Madonna studios. They were full - so the Madonna lady 'kindly' lead me to near the harbour front to the empty Hotel Contessa. The manager Bertha showed me room...

Booked this place after a review in the Rough Guide, a mistake. Very noisy at night, with a busy bar pumping out music until 4 am. The room itself was large with a great view, but felt basic. The bathroom was terrible, a leaking toilet and a shower head that couldn't be fastened to the wall and had to be...

Hotel Contessa is one of the most beautiful romantic places to stay. The staff were wonderful, the views are great and I love the fact that each room is set up as a suite so you didn't have to pay the extra cost to get the best. Oh and one other thing - the Food was excellant!!!! Thank you Hotel...
