Where to stay in Chania Town

Many package tourists on Crete stay in comfortable hotels outside Chania Town, though this lively seaport offers accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels to five-star resorts. If you too prefer to stay out of town, consider one of the surrounding area's well-appointed villas and apartments, which provide secure parking and access to private outdoor spaces. Stick to the city's harbor area for fine shopping and dining, or check out the old town's boutique hotels for good atmosphere, friendly service, and proximity to sandy beaches.

  • As of now (May 2015) the monastery is under renovation, so you'll see nothing more than the garden. Bear also in mind that the famous path to the sea behind the monastery is said to be closed (there is a notice), but everybody seems to walk it nonetheless.
  • Very nice monastery, nice and quiet. Nice museum with their silverware. Garden well maintained with many different plants. Fragrant citrus trees.

  • Very nice and interesting if you arrive too early you go to other monasteries and come back later

  • This dot on the map-the monument of war 1945 (all that figured in Greek), mounted behind the fence of the monastery, at the beginning of the trail to the cave of the Virgin Females. The monastery itself-Moni Erimitou Gkouvernetou Ioannou on map (see companion). Open for visits from 8:00 up to 12:00 days. Remarkable intrinsic painting Temple!
