After Santorini and our amazing stay at the San Antonio Hotel, we headed to Chania. It was an hour and a half ferry ride to Heraklion; then a two hour car ride, before we got to Serenissima Boutique Hotel in Chania. The hotel is located in the middle of Old Town Chania. There are no cars allowed to enter Old Town, we had to park on the streets outside. Thankfully, it’s only a 10 min walk and the hotel sends someone with a hand truck to bring the luggage. Serenissima Boutique Hotel is a very charming little place with only 7 rooms.

Our room was located on the first floor, so we took the stairs up. The stairs are located in a cute outdoor courtyard area.

The room is definitely on the small side since we’re in the middle of the small Old Town, but it’s very comfortable.

It has a modern-rustic feel with an all wood high ceiling.

The bathroom looks like it’s in a cave. Very nice and clean.

Our room rate included breakfast which you can have at the restaurant indoors or outside in the street in front of the hotel. You can order breakfast from an a la carte menu; as many things as you want as many times as you want.

Everything they had on the menu was very flavorful and delicious.


Serenissima Boutique Hotel Bottom Line:

Serenissima Boutique Hotel is a beautiful, charming hotel in the middle of the busy area of Old Town. This is where all the restaurants and night life spots are. You’ll need a car to drive to the beaches in the morning and then come hang out around the hotel at night. I’d personally rather do that than staying in a hotel by the beach then having to drive at night.

I have to mention Vassilis who took care of us throughout our stay at Serenissima Boutique Hotel. He picked up our luggage from the car the night we arrived and checked us in. He gave us amazing recommendations for dinner and dessert places as well as beaches to visit. And he helped us with checking out and bringing our luggage back to the car. Vassilis if you see this, THANK YOU!

Also, Kiki who was our waitress every morning for breakfast was great. Thanks for bearing with us as we ordered everything off of the menu 🙂
