Porto Del Colombo

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We are currently staying at Porto del Colombo. We came for a weeks break and to visit our friends. The staff are attentive and have made our stay very comfortable. The building itself is full of character and very charming. We are on the top floor and have a nice view of the harbour from one of our windows. Breakfast is simple but tasty. We would definitely return to this hotel.

Very clean hotel and very nice decoration . The rooms are very clean and the reception desk very friendly . Its in the heart of the city center . The only bad think is there is no elevator because it is an old building but all the other are so good so you don't mind about it

The location is perfect, the breakfast is delicious, but the staff is what makes it 10000% amazing! It feels like staying with family. Would not have stayed anywhere else in Chania! Ps: a little tip, the view from the roof is better than any restaurant!

Stayed here as part of a trip around the Greek isles. Raula and the staff were so sweet and made sure we had everything we needed. The breakfast was great, all of it cooked fresh. We arrived early, and while waiting for our room, Raula offered us some raki and sweets. The location is perfect, not far from the Venetian port, but tucked away to be quiet.

The hotel was booked last minute, we were greeted well by the receptionist and our room was not bad. Not on par to a 4 star hotel. Not even close. The breakfast was ok, nothing special. But in the second night there was a huge cockroach in our room. It was completely disgusting. We were paranoid the rest of the nights staying there. I'd recommend for the location if you don't have a rental. Nothing else, there's no parking nearby.

This is our second year at PdC. That should say it all. We travelled from Australia and our friends from the UK, in 2016 and 2017 amd plan the same trip next year to PdC. There are only positives about this establishment: situation, service, local knowledge, breakfasts and a great all round Greek feel. Management is brilliant and has good contacts with local taxis and tour operators. Quite apart from this, we like Chania. It's got a family feel and the staff know us now and we know them. We share stories, although I suspect we learn much more. What's not to recommend about PdC.

Very nice hotel in the center of old town. But what makes it super special is a customer service. We had a problem with and the front desk spent an hour trying to help us. We really appreciate the help and would definitely stay in this hotel in a future.

This 700 year old building is in very good condition with well appointed rooms. Roula & the staff are very gracious, thoughtful & caring. A delightful Breakfast with local & homemade offerings. It is a little back from the main waterfront action so quieter @ more relaxing yet only 50 mtrs from the bustle. Charming restaurants in the vicinity make sure you visit Xania & some of the smaller establishments away from the main waterfront for the best fare.

We had booked this hotel through Fantasy Travel in Athens as part of a larger Crete travel package. This was a hotel suggested by our travel agent. It is centrally located in the old part of Chania close to waterfront, shops, and restaurants. The hotel is in an historic building that was once the French embassy and is located in a maze of narrow medieval streets. The interior is quaint with a narrow winding staircase leading to three floors of guestrooms and a downstairs area for breakfast. Our room was room 5, probably the nicest room in the hotel on the top floor affording a great view of the harbour. The room was quiet, clean, comfortable, and very nicely decorated. The bathroom was a shower cubicle and was a snug fit. Although the hotel was good, the strength of this hotel is in its staff. They all are so friendly and ensuring our stay was comfortable and even right down to making sure everything was right with the breakfast. They were even kind enough to allow us check into our room before 8AM as we had got off the overnight ferry from Piraeus Things to keep in mind when booking into this hotel and many others in old Chania. Many of these hotels are in historic buildings meaning they will not a have a lift (elevator). Another factor are the streets of Chania itself. It is virtually impossible for a taxi to stop right "at the door." This means you might have to carry your luggage a little ways if staying at this hotel. The above factor has not influenced my review and want to recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in the heart of the historic area. This hotel is reasonably priced (about €100) and has very friendly staff.

Very friendly staff. A very welcome drink on arrival. Harbour view rooms are at the top of three flights of stairs but worth it. They went to a lot of effort to provide a gluten free breakfast. Thoroughly recommend the hotel.
