Lena could offer me her room very spontaneously and quick. For my purpose it was very comfortable. Because my plans changed last-minute I didnt even attend her room, but Im sure it would have been a good time.
Listing description was fully accurate, within a few buildings from one of the main churches in old town Chania. House was very well kept, and Lena was very responsive all the time. Highly recommend!
Lena is friendly and stylish and busy. This is one of many places she rents and my guess is that the problems we encountered are solved by high season. We were here in april.
Pros: location is great and near parking, the place is a nice example of a very old and grecious home (high celings, good view)
Cons: it needs a loving touch-- it's not decorated well, random stuff on the walls and in the drawers.
we didn't have lightbulbs that worked, nor batteries in one of the heater remotes and no firewood. It was windy cold and storming when we arrrived so that would have been nice. She brought us firewood the next day but then it was warm and nice. The kitchen missed some essential items-- like a corkscrew to open a bottle of wine.
For us it was inexpensive and easy.
Overall the Old Stone House in real life is more or less as pictured, though there were a few things that surprised us or did not fit with our expectations based on the listing. We arrived at Lena's main office in Chania and were easily able to contact her. The location of the house is excellent. The rooftop patio was a great place for a glass of wine and to hang wet clothes. The kitchen was stocked with all the usual appliances, though based on other Air BnB rentals in the Greek islands, including Crete, we were expecting coffee and maybe a bottle of water in the fridge. There are two shower facilities in the house, the blue tiled hamam and the red tiled bathroom. Water drainage is an issue -- slow in the blue, and when one of us quickly rinsed off upstairs water came through the ceiling downstairs. For a three night rental, we each got one towel with no hand towel in the bathroom. It is a unique spot to stay, just not the most comfortable.
Lena's house was beautiful and was very pleasant to stay in. Because it was less sunny than usual, our solar water healer stopped working and we had less hot water, but Lena was able to show us very quickly how to regain hot water through the mains. I saw very little of her, but in general, she was an excellent host.
The location is about a five min walk from the old town centre. We were there during a relatively quiet period (mid April - the week before Orthodox Easter), but I can imagine that Chania is much louder and busier during the high season, so Lena's location is perfect if you want some space away from the crowds!
Lena’s room was amazing! We felt entirely spoiled by the incredible location, amenities, and comfort provided.
The apartment had everything I needed. I am grateful for Lena's hospitality and we wish her all the best!
Lena ist eine unkomplizierte, nette Gastgeberin. Als ich ankam war sie gerade nicht da und hatte den Schlüssel einfach für mich hinterlegt.
Das Zimmer ist klein, behaglich und hat eine perfekte Lage in der Altstadt von Chania. In einer Minute ist man beim Meer!
We only stayed for a short night but found the accommodation to be pleasant and located in a great area. I would stay here again.
We loved staying at Lena's place. The room was large by Chania 's standards and very well equipped. We wish we were able to stay longer but will return in the future. The bathroom and shower was great and large enough to move around in. We did not get to meet Lena in person but the keys to our room was waiting for us when we got there. We will return . Great value for money
I arrived to this place very late at night but it is very easy to find. The location is good, only 1 minute of walking you can see the sea. The room is small but you have everything you need inside. Lena is very kind and helpful. I have a great stay there.
