Lovely, central located hotel with friendly people
Clean, close to beach, shops and Chania city
We very strongly recommend Elma's Dream Apartments . Our apartment was nice and clean, personnel very polite and helpful. Hotel has free wi-fi , swimming pool, bar, small billiard table and lovely friendly dog. It is two minutes walking to the nice sandy beach. If you also like nice views you can go along the beach and up small rocks, walk on cliffs with beautifull scenery, going along ( took us an hour) you can get to another beach which actually is located ten minutes from the first one when walking on the road. If you decide to go opposite direction you can get to the Chania city which takes around 20 min.walking. 3 min. from the hotel you will find small shops where you can buy everything from swimming equipment to alcohol and food as well as rent a car. However we would recommend to walk a bit further as in about 15 min walking distance you have two big supermarkets with good prices. One of them is Lidl and the other local Inka. Next to Lidl is a bowling centre with mini golf, pool table and a Bar. Crete has lots of things to offer but to see them we recommend renting a car. We were there at the end of the season and for renting a small hyundai for 3 days paid 70EUR . Manual cars are generally cheaper than automatics. Roads are quite wide but do not be tempted because on national motorway they have speed cameras in some places ( usually after second camera warning sign :-) ). So when you will have a car you must visit Phalasarna beach as well as Elafonissi. Rethymnon is also worth site to visit, it is only 1.5 hour drive from Chania and the main thing we would recommend to see is the Fortress located by the harbour. You can park your car for free below the fortress. There is a paid parking close by if you want to spent few euros.
