Central accommodation

The 3 star family-friendly Halepa Hotel is located close to the central market in the heart of Chania. The Municipal Garden and Venetian Great Arsenal are a short stroll away.

It’s an elegant hotel that, back in the 19th century, used to house the British embassy on Crete, when Chania was the island capital.

Modern, air-conditioned guest rooms feature free WiFi, fridge, minibar and satellite TV. Private bathrooms with bathtubs or showers include complimentary toiletries and hair dryers.

The sauna and fitness centre offers massages and treatments. There is a bar-lounge and onsite coffee shop and cafe. The buffet breakfast can be enjoyed in the hotel’s elegant garden

Guests can also hire bicycles to explore the region.

Chania highlights

Chania’s old town, the Kastelli, is an atmospheric warren of Minoan ruins, old Cretan houses and historic remnants of Venetian and Ottoman rule. Attractions for visitors include the sea wall, with superb views, a 400 year-old Venetian lighthouse and the distinctive mosque of the Janissaries.

The harbour front is an obvious choice for dining, but guests looking to broaden their tourist experience should also check out some of the local haunts on Chatzimichali Daliani, with some atmospheric grill restaurants and informal tavernas.

Beach life offers a choice of scenic spots, with crystal clear waters and golden sands. Favourites include the family-friendly Loutraki beach, with shallow waters, Agia Marina, with water sports facilities, and the closest option, Agioi Apostoloi.

The nearby Akrotiri peninsula has some excellent beaches and villages off the normal tourist trail, well worth exploring.

Guest reviews

The Halepa Hotel enjoys a high rating on TripAdvisor, with recent comments from guests including the following, edited for length:

‘I have rarely met so helpful and informative staff, and everywhere you look you are greeted with a smile.’

‘This hotel is the perfect place to stay to enjoy Chania and yet be far enough away from the “madding crowd” when it comes to a peaceful night’s rest.’

‘I had a wonderful week at the Halepa Hotel. I highly recommend it. It was very clean and comfortable and great value for money. The staff could not have been more helpful and considerate and I plan to return.’

Island break

So where will it be for your island escape this summer? Well, Arran has its attractions, but it would be hard to beat this seven-night idyll in Chania.

Sip a chilled glass of wine, toy with a Greek salad and bicker happily over whether those turquoise waters lapping the shore are the Aegean or the Mediterranean. With direct flights and a relaxing and welcoming hotel, today’s Big Deal offers the perfect summer break.
