Lonely Planet review

This is one of the new breed of boutique hotels in the quiet Splantzia quarter, with an elegant wood-and-stone exterior. The historic building has a contemporary design and fit-out, nine rooms with all mod cons (including a smallish jacuzzi in one), and a terrace on the roof. The original touches include a Venetian archway in the entrance, and original walls from the mid-16th century.

Our independent authors have visited Ionas Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Hania.

Description provided by property

Ionas Hotel is a carefully restored historical home, located in the heart of the Old Town of Chania. Ionas is a perfect base for guests wishing to explore authentic Chania.

The Venetian and Ottoman elements of this charming building have been restored and thoughtfully recreated to celebrate its heritage. Even the core walls of the building date back to 1538.

The heart of the house showcases a staircase that has been carefully crafted from wood and iron to create a fine example of classic design. The decorative touches of stain-glass windows add to the unique beauty of Ionas house.

However, modern luxuries have not been ignored and each spacious room is equipped with a separate bathroom, featuring a spa bath or hydro-massage shower. The hotel is also fully air-conditioned throughout.

Ionas Hotel is just 100 metres from the harbour, with many of Chania’s monuments and museums within a short walking distance. The local markets, cafés and restaurants provide plenty of afternoon and evening entertainment.

The Ionas Hotel is made up of 9 elegantly decorated rooms and a beautiful roof top terrace. It can be found in the neighbourhood of Plathia Rouga, Splantzia (the Old Town) Chania. The wooden facade of the building has been recreated based on the original Ottoman remains. Venetian elements, including the stone archway of the hotel entrance, have been repaired and restored.

Travel information

If entering Chania from the airport on E. Venizelou Street, turn right onto Daskalogianni Street.

Once on Daskalogianni Street, going toward the port, take the third left turn, just before Splantzia Square, into what becomes the pedestrian walkway of Kallinikou Sarpaki. At the far end of the square you will find Ionas Hotel.
