Set right on the beach front in the suburb of Nea Chora, the hotel is situated about 25 minutes stroll to the old town of Chania. The beach is clean and well kept, and the hotel has sun beds and umbrellas to rent for a small fee. There is a small fishing port and harbor at the end of the promenade which is lined by numerous tavernas all selling a great variety of Greek fare and great fish There are three floors to the hotel all covered by a lift, and our room was clean and simply furnished, with air con and a balcony overlooking the beach. Continental breakfast was served each morning and could be taken inside, or out on the terrace looking onto the beach. The hotel bar serves drinks and snacks with a waiter service to the sun beds on the beach which was good. All the staff were super friendly and eager to be of assistance.
So, if you're looking for a nice friendly place to stay, in a great location with loads of eating / drinking options on your doorstep, then the Hotel Danaos comes highly recommended indeed.
