Fodor's Expert Review Casa Delfino

Theofanous 9, Chania, Crete, 73100, Greece Fodor's Choice

If you have an ounce of romance in your body you'll love this gorgeous hotel—in 1835 Captain Delfino sailed from Genoa, only to founder on the rocks off Gramvousa, but, smitten by the beauty of Chania, he bought this Renaissance Venetian mansion as his home. Six generations later, his descendants have sensitively restored this astonishing property to its former glory. Stylish and sophisticated, with chocolate and gold highlights, every room is individual and whispers history. Intimate and very grown-up, the matinee-idol looks are backed by assured and discrete service; it is somewhere that makes you feel very special. A classic.

PROS

  • prime position on Chania's achingly pretty harbor, opposite the lighthouse
  • superb breakfast in a mosaic pebbled courtyard with homemade specialties
  • stunning spa and rooftop terrace bar to indulge your senses

CONS

  • no parking in the town center (but hotel's golf buggy will collect you)
  • historical building means some stairs
  • books up early in high season
