Hania’s Venetian quarter brims with chic boutique hotels and family-run atmospheric pensions in restored Venetian buildings. There are no hostels and the best places are definitely not budget (there is a nearby campground, though). Most hotels are open year-round. Many of the older and boutique hotels have no lift. The western end of the harbour and along Zambeliou is a good place to look, but it can be noisy and crowded at night, especially along the harbour – the price you pay for a view. There are cheaper rooms around the Splantzia quarter, but to get away from the masses head up to the Halepa neighbourhood overlooking the water (a five- to 10-minute walk). Hotel complexes with pools can be found at Nea Hora and along the beach running west to Platanes and beyond.
