“A beautifully restored 17th-century Chania mansion in the heart of town. Venetian style grandeur with contemporary opulence in all the unique suites. Intimate and luxurious with fantastic views and a great spa. Walking distance to Chania's best restaurants and main attractions. A charming haven.”

Hotel Review

The most exclusive address in Chania’s old quarter combines Venetian townhouse grandeur with up-to-the- minute facilities behind its wrought-iron gates and cream- coloured walls. Casa Delfino is a 17th-century mansion which has been restored with an eye for luxury. The 16 suites are individually decorated and deeply comfortable, with separate living and sleeping areas and modern frills such as DVDs, wide-screen TV and WiFi. This place is classy but not snooty, with friendly, helpful multilingual staff.
