    Very good

    We liked the city and the location of the Kydon Hotel. The free parking was also a plus. This hotel was very accessible to the old town and market area. It is in a great location to tour Chania. The breakfasts was a real plus. Lots of variety and food.

    The hotel is out of date. It needs to be remodeled. The AC in the room never really got cold and the beds were hard as a rock. The water in the bathroom never got hot and you always took a very cold to lukewarm shower and the location of the faucet in the shower was in a very inconvenient location. I left the hotel with several bruises from knocking the faucet and the soap holder. It is a very uncomfortable hotel. The rooms still use keys and the TV did not work and was an old tube tv.

    Staff was extremely helpful, professional and welcoming in all senses.

    Although located in front of the market and centered around many stores, their small plaza is the choice of local protestors.

    Superb

    I liked the friendly staff and the fact that were always willing to help us. I also liked the perfect location of the hotel.

    There was noise coming from other rooms. I suggest that measures should be taken to reduce noise between the rooms of the hotel.

    Personal are very friendly! Thanks a lot to Maria, she helped a lot with good recommendations about places to visit. Location of the hotel is great, just a little bit far from the beach. Breakfast was good and tasty. I tried first time in my life rose-jam, which was great :-)

    Hotel has limited amount of non-smoking rooms! (On our floor I counted only 3 non-smoking rooms) Especially with view to city center. (only 1 or 2 non-smoking rooms). I recommend to check beforehand that room is non-smoking if you are sensetive to sigaretes smell. Luckily we managed to change our original room after two nights (room, which had strong sigaretes smell) to better one.

    It is dissapointing that in the 4 star hotel there is noone who can help the customers for carrying the luggages. There is always a luggage carrying service in all hotels.

    Superb

    Hospitality. Good breakfast. Big and clean rooms.

    In my room No 314 the bathroom layout was not good. WC fixture was positioned in a very narrow place. For a 4 star hotel I was expecting to see bath tub instead of a shower tray in the bathroom. The shower tray in my opinion should be one size bigger. Internet wifi signal was very poor in the room.

    A lovely breakfast included and the complimentary fruit basket and Ouzo.

    No hot water in the shower. We had to have a very cold shower twice. Also, the maid was cleaning the rooms very early and slamming doors, running the loud vacuum at 7am on a Saturday.

    staff was friendly and helpful, rooms were spacious and comfortable. We had a spectacular view of the city. The breakfast was outstanding, a buffet with everything you could desire for a good start to the day, with many local treats. That made our stay all the more enjoyable. Parking was convenient too.

    Zentral gelegenes Hotel der etwas gehobenen Kategorie. Die recht laute Straße stört bei geschlossenem Fenster nicht, die Klimaanlage ist kaum wahrzunehmen. Sehr gute Matratzen, "nordeuropäische" Decken (nicht die Art Leintuch + nicht bezogene Decke). Frühstück gehört zu den besten, die wir auf Kreta erlebten. Eigene Parkmöglichkeit im Hof, etwas schwierig zu finden, nur ein unauffälliger P Schild auf der Hauswand, in der viel befahrenen Straße Richtung frontal Markthalle.

    Das Bad ist etwas abgewohnt, Qualität der Bauausführung landestypisch.

    Zimmer vor allem das Bett, Zentrumsnähe, Room service und Frühstück waren sehr gut.

    Durch die Lage ziemlich lauter Verkehr. Auf den Balkon gehen oder Fenster öffnen kaum möglich.

    Sehr guter Service! Super Lage bei den Zimmern mit Altstadtblick!

    Geräuschpegel bei geöffneten Fenstern sehr hoch!

    The breakfast!!! It was so perfect! Das Personal ist einfach griechisch. So hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Dieses Hotel war einfach nur perfekt so wie die Insel perfekt ist.
