The cozy Danaos Hotel is located on the seafront of Nea Chora’s district, just 1 km from the old Venetian port of Chania. Here you have the opportunity to stay next to the beach – but at the same time you are close to the city center – and the airport is only 16 km away.
From the sandy beach you have a beautiful view of rocks and reefs that are perfect for snorkeling both for children and adults.
The city’s residents use Nea Chora beach from sunrise till sunset. At dawn you see the morning bathers, often old ladies, whose voices are heard clearly over the water. During the day, groups of young people go to the beach, and at the end of the day families come down.
The lifeguard tower is placed on the beach in front of the hotel, and here you can rent umbrellas and sun beds, enjoy drinks and snacks.
In the small local harbor “Limanaki” there is activity around the clock, and in the morning you can see the strange fish, octopuses etc. that the fishermen have brought in.
Nea Chora is a vibrant part of the city, where you can find the local open air market, overflowing with seasonal fruit and vegetables as well as clothing and household items every Thursday throughout the year.
Along the promenade you can find numerous good restaurants, where people from the city meet with friends and family for lunch or dinner.
When you want to visit the center of Chania, you can stroll along the sea side to the Venetian harbor in 15 minutes, or you can take the city bus that stops a few meters far from the hotel. The bus takes you to the central bus station and stops also in front of the historical Market Hall.
We are pleased to assist our guests with rental bicycles, motorbikes and cars, tourist information and booking of guided tours around the island.
