Ionas Boutique Hotel: my hotel en La Canea

In the middle of the Chania’s narrow alleys, you can find the Ionas Boutique Hotel, reflecting the area’s rich and complex history. The location right in the heart of old town was perfect, we were able to walk around and enjoy the pretty sights near and around the harbor. The hotel was just beautiful. The family that owns/runs the hotel was so accommodating and friendly.

We had the cheapest room, there was almost no light during the day (there was a door but it faced the street/breakfast area). The only small window we could leave open if we didn’t cover it with a towel in the morning was very bright.
