A collection of 6 room types
Serenissima Boutique Hotel is located in the heart of the old town of Chania in western Crete and is nestled amongst pretty narrow lanes and streets close to the waterfront. Even though the atmosphere of Chania is vibrant and cosmopolitan the area in and around the Venetian harbour retains its old town charm where it is an absolute delight to stroll around the delightful, characteristic narrow streets where you’ll find an abundance of tavernas, cafes, bars and shops.
Chania is also an excellent starting point for further exploration of western Crete whether your interest be archaeological, walking, cycling, or simply relaxing and enjoying some of the wonderful beaches. Car hire is of course an excellent idea, but if you feel you would rather not drive main bus station is not too far away and the bus service offers frequent and good connections to main towns along the coast and there is a service to some of the villages. The busy indoor market with its array of fresh Cretan produce, the Municipal Garden with peace and tranquility, the Archaeological Museum, the lighthouse, or the beach at Nea Chora are all within walking distance.
The aim of the hotel is to provide a welcoming atmosphere combined with serenity, luxury and relaxation. Most of the buildings in the old town were built during the Venetian period of occupation, especially during the 16th and 17th century, and some changes were made during the subsequent occupation by the Turks. Serenissima has been carefully restored with respect to the history of the town’s heritage. Venetian arches which exude a romantic and elegant atmosphere are present and an original Turkish bath has been fully restored.
Several room types are available and you are sure to find the one that is perfect for you. Enjoy your stay in Chania.
