Lonely Planet review
One of the new breed of boutique hotels in the quieter Splantzia quarter, Ionas is housed in an historic building with contemporary interior design and friendly owners. The nine rooms are kitted out with all mod cons (including a smallish Jacuzzi in one) and share a terrace. Original touches include a Venetian archway in the entrance, and 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.
