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.

  • Historical and unique. Reflects the history of the city of Chania. Built as a Catholic church. Then converted to a mosque. Finaly and to this day serving as Orthodox church.
  • As a Merchant Marine Second Officer this church is the place of all seamen who would like to pray to Saint Nicolaus to protect us from the wild side of the sea.
  • The priests of St. Nicholas prohibit photographing inside the temple. The hierarchy not helps tourism. Any such ban banishes tourists. Mitropolis of Chania (father George) informed. It should be noted that such bans show very low spiritual level by priests when in stark contrast the Metropolis of Athens allows photographing inside the Temple in Athens.
