Lovely and clean hotel. Sadly we had no view but the room was clean, roomy and hotel was very central. The breakfast was great with a fresh orange juice machine and loads of choice. Breakfast staff were efficient.

Was invited to stay other places but denied invitations and glad we did .Well above average close to all things that are “must do”in Chania clean , welcoming , friendly, easy access, great breakfast, rooms nice and large,plenty of storage,wifi did not miss a beat ,street outside our room was noisy but I think double glazed windows sorted that problem out, thanks Kydon will be back next year

Happy to recommend the Kydon. The staff were very helpful. I stayed for work at an event nearby. The reception staff were very helpful. Found me something to do on a day off. Restaurant was great , nice food and friendly staff who seemed to be able to recommend from the menu. Near to the town / harbour so you can easily get out for food or drink.

Once again on the road for the G......and have they booked me into the most wonderful hotel you can find. My accommodations are just unbelievable. I have a great view from my room, The food is just wonderful and the staff is warm and accommodating. This hotel is SPOTLESS. My room is perfect. Highly Recommended.

We have just returned from a 11 night stay at the Kydon hotel in Chania. From the moment we walked through the door to the moment we left, we enjoyed every minute of our stay at this hotel. All of the staff were very professional, courteous, provided very useful information and advice, and spoke excellent English. We had single rooms which were modern, spacious, spotlessly clean with comfortable beds, good quality towels, bathrobes and nice bathrooms. The hotel has a very nice bar on the first floor and dining facilities which serve a great selection of food all day. Even though we arrived close to midnight, we were able to get something decent to eat. The breakfast, which was included in our rate, was excellent with plenty of choice to cater to every taste, including gluten free. The location is perfect - it really is in the heart of Chania! It is just opposite the old market which is very interesting to visit and where you can find a wide range of food stalls, clothes, traditional arts and crafts, cafes, as well as the usual tourist stuff. You can also pick up the hop-on/hop-off bus just outside the hotel. It is about a 15 minute walk to the old Venetian harbour where you have a fantastic selection of restaurants, cafes etc. as well as spectacular views of the old city and port. We went there every evening to enjoy the great local fish, vino and hospitality at very good prices. We were also able to walk from the hotel to the beach which was about 20 minutes. We found the overall atmosphere in Chania to be very friendly and relaxed, and the streets were clean and safe. The Kydon hotel added to this great experience. We would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to family and any friends who may be fortunate enough to visit the beautiful town of Chania in Crete. Eileen and Patricia (Ireland)

Good hotel in a great location. Rooms are a bit dated but are tidy. Breakfast was excellent with a lot of options. Breakfast staff was very friendly. Location is the excellent - right across from the agora and a 5-8 minute walk to the rest of the action by the harbor area.

Cool euro-med vibe, great location and friendly staff. Modern well appointed rooms. Best European hotel breakfast. Would stay here again. Good value as well. Very satisfied. High quality in every way. Could not ask for better.

Excellent service, delicious breakfast, very clean rooms. I come back every time I visit Chania. I love it! The only thing missing from my room was the view, but I imagine booking a room on the upper floors could have changed that.

I loved my room with a very nice view from the balcony! I have stayed at Kydon Hotel before, the location is excellent, within walking distance from the old town. It is close to all shops, and the old covered Market is just opposite from the Hotel. Great service, very helpful and kind staff. The Breakfast was so good! Thank you, you have made me feel so welcome. Antonio

So pleased we stayed in this hotel. It was a great location in front of the indoor market, short walk to venetian harbour, shops and bars/restaurants. Staff were lovely, very warm and welcoming. Food was delicious. Rooms were spacious and although we were above a busy road we heard nothing. Definately recommend this hotel. I gave it four stars only because it did not have a swimming pool.
