Fodor's Expert Review Porto Veneziano

Old Venetian Harbor, Chania, Crete, 73132, Greece

Nautical themes in blue and white make for a light, airy atmosphere in this harborside establishment, but the main draw are those views of the Venetian waterfront and the White Mountains. A nice, honest hotel, with an award-winning breakfast, it is brought to life by its super staff. Minutes from all the attractions but quiet and peaceful, it offers great value. As a plus, it is open year-round, making a great base for out-of-season travelers.
