Close to lots of lovely restaurants, a few steps away from the port. The bus station was a short walk and it was easy to visit other parts of the island. Would recommend Chania.

Delightful town. Very lively, friendly, with lots of historical and cultural interest. Huge selection of lovely tavernas bars and cafes. Lots of interesting shops. Everything within walking distance of the hotel. Good selection of reasonably priced car rental companies.

Nice beach. 2 beds/shade = 5euros. There were some really nice and unusual shops even well known names. Plenty of choice for bars and restaurants to watch the world go by. Lovely old buildings around the square and harbour areas. Excellent place for adults of all ages.

Lots to do, interesting buildings, so much history. Plenty of restaurants and cafes to try. We preferred the ones not on the harbour front. Bus station, excursions and boat trips. We booked our excursions through the hotel and they were good value, we used Exodus Travel and went to Knossos Palace and Heraklion and Elafonissi Island. Sightseeing bus was good too.
