Settle down for the evening in one of the tavernas offering local cuisine.
Fully renovated Venetian building located on the western-side of the Old Town of Chania, a few meters from the Old Harbor's edge, blending perfectly into a beautiful neighborhood of similarly restored and decorated Venetian buildings in cobblestone lanes. The Hotel Porto del colombo , an imposing, tall, 600 year old building, has gathered a rich history over the passing of the centuries. During the days of Turkish Rule, the building housed members of high ranking Turkish military who made many changes to the building's architecture - a "Hamam" in the garden and next to that, a room to secure their slaves (where you can still see the metallic rings nailed to the walls). In the beginning of the 19th Century, the building was used as a French embassy and later was inhabited by the great Greek political figure, Eleftherios Venizelos, who also used it as his political offices until his move to Athens, when he took power as Prime Minister of Greece.
When it comes to nightlife in Chania, old embraces new. Traditional tavernas, pubs and cocktail bars reawaken former venetian houses. This tradionel City-Hotel is a historic building in the heart of the old town near the Marina-Museum. Peaceful situated in a pedestrian zone. As there is no parking possibility you have to use the parking lot behind the museum (nearly 400 meters). We arrange your Crete Holiday-Package including excursions to the attractions of western Crete and private-airport-transfers from Chania Airport.
The Hotel Porto del Colombo has 10 beautiful rooms - the 2 of which are "maisonettes" - fully restored and traditionally decorated to provide our guests with an especially warm and welcome feeling. All rooms have modern conveniences (WC, telephone, TV, mini-bar, air-conditioning and Central Heating in winter) ensuring our Cretehideaways.com guests a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
