I spent nine days here for a workshop and was delighted by my stay. The hotel personnel were very friendly and the hotel is well placed, just across the street from Nea Chora beach, near the main port of Chania town. The rooms were basic but very clean and I had a small balcony with a city view. Breakfast was...

Seven couples, seven nights! We all had balcony rooms and had wonderful sea views and could hear the water of a night. We also had a personal beach area. A variety of good restaurants within walking distance. Only minutes to old town and much quieter, not as touristy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Clean,comfortable rooms. Highly recommend it.

We had 7 rooms booked with everyone being extremely happy with our choice of accomodation. Staff, service and the cleanliness were outstanding. It is directly across from the beach and a short walk to the old town. Plenty of good restaurants are close and there is a bar downstairs

We spent a week at hotel Danaos as a group of fifteen. We had the most amazing time - the staff were so lovely, the location was perfect, and we couldn't fault a thing. The sun-beds on the beach were so convenient, and the recommendations from the staff were perfect every time. Cannot recommend enough!

I had no vote in coming but I couldn't be more satisfied. It is a simple hotel, but it's staff and service are amazing. Friendly, arranging the smallest detail, it made me feel (and my colleagues) like at home in a relaxed atmosphere. The location couldn't be better, just in front of the beach and close to authentic restaurants.... And...

I very much appreciated the warm family atmoshere in this Danish small hotel quite close to the center and the harbour.

I'm a solo traveller and like a good clean place to lay my head at the end of the day. I can't praise this Hotel enough. It's ideally located on the beach and within a 15/20 minute leisurely stroll along a scenic coastal walk into the hub that is Chania. The beds in The Danaos Hotel are really comfortable and...

It's little and simple, but with excellent location (Only 1 km to the old town) and very nice stuff! We enjoyed a lot our staying although the bed could have been much better. I recommend to take a room with a view. With balcony you can enjoy the sunset and the beach right in front of the hotel.
