    Quiet, Comfortable, Nice and Small

    Wow, what a place. Tucked out of the way but just 5 minutes walk from an amazing beach, within 2 minutes of a bus stop (take bus 21 to get in to Chania) and supermarkets right outside the complex. We took the Maisonette apartment, which has a bedroom, bathroom (with shower) and balcony upstairs, kitchenette (with Hob, Grill and Oven and Fridge), 2 sofas/beds and TV downstairs. Outside is a small seating area. Fully working Air Conditioning both upstairs and downstairs. The pool is not too big but very deep and warm. Small bar where you can buy a range of drinks and snacks - at reasonable prices. Andreas and his Wife are excellent! Cleaners cleaned every day. I cannot fault this place and look forward to visiting again.

    we were made most welcome

    We had a great 8 night stay. The staff were very friendly, it’s in a great location and we were lucky to have an apartment with 2 balconies, one for the morning sun and one for the afternoon. The place was cleaned to a very high standard.

    Great place to stay!

    We love this place! The family atmosphere is fun and relaxing and you are minutes away from a couple of beaches or a quick ride into the city center.

    Quiet and comfortable

    Great little family run apartment hotel. We felt comfortable and safe there. Our little kitchen was great for breakfast and to make morning coffee. There was a nice eating area, patio and living room. We only put our feet in the pool but it was nice too. The host was so nice and welcoming and offered great advice on the area. We walked to the old city each day.

    We liked this a lot. Very quiet and cosy place. The beach was near and very nice. The family was helpful and it felt like home. You could walk to Hania along beachside (4 km). We would surely book this again, if ever again back to Hania.

    Horrible séjour, à fuir !

    Accueil glacial par la gérante qui me fusille du regard pensant que je n’ai pas lu les 10 panneaux à l’entrée signalant que l’entrée est réservé aux clients. Logement en duplex alors que j’avais demandé de ne pas avoir d’escalier à l’intérieur à cause du danger pour mon bébé de 18 mois et qu’on m’avait bien assuré par mail 1 mois et demi avant que ma demande était prise en compte et que je n’aurais pas d’escalier… ! ODEUR nauséabonde et omniprésente de CIGARETTE, c’était invivable ! SALE à l’arrivée : touche de cheveux et insectes/toiles d’araignées/escargots dans la salle de bain, poils sur les wc, lentille de contact par terre dans la chambre… et aucun ménage pendant 8 nuits ! Juste les poubelles vidées et les serviettes/draps changés quelques fois. Pas de lumière dans la SDB puisque la fenêtre est ensevelie sous les plantes. Par contre réveillé tous les matins avec le lever du soleil car il n’y aucun volet à la fenêtre qui se situe au niveau de la tête de lit ! Pas de wifi ni même de réseau à l’étage. Bref, horrible expérience, à fuir !!!

    Très bien

    Nous n'y avons séjourné que 3 jours mais nous avons passé un très bon moment. Pas de parking privé mais des places sont accessibles à proximité (grand parking gratuit ouvert). L'entrée de l'appart'hôtel est un peu caché (petite riel pour y accéder. Le bâtiment est à 2 pas de la plage et à 15 minutes en voiture du centre de Chania. Côté apparemment, nous avons eu la bonne surprise d'être surclassé. Le studio était très propre et très fonctionnel côté cuisine. Quelques restrictions au niveau des horaires pour la piscine pour cause sanitaire qui ne nous ont pas vraiment fait défaut. Des serviettes nous ont été prêtée pour la baignade. Personnel très agréable! Je recommande

    NIce and cosy hotel, 2min walk to fabulous beach!

    Great small hotel near Chrissi akti beach. This beach is fabulous, shallow and 2 chairs with umbrellas only 7e (June-19). Couple supermarkets and tavernas in walking distance. The kids loved pool - kids section for toddlers and bigger section with nice spot to jump to pool! Very easy to communicate with Andreas before vacation. He arranged taxi (and the key for us in the middle of night 2am) and check-in was easy next morning. We had few issues (some bugs in bathroom) but that was fixed immediatly. Warmly recommend!
