We spent our second day in western Crete in the city of Hania, where we were staying. Its old town is a beautiful Venetian-era city of narrow lanes surrounding an attractive harbor...just the sort of place I like, and Hania is one of my favorite examples. Predictably enough, it's pretty packed with tourists, but it's one of those places that doesn' …
From the Cretan capital of Iraklio, we headed west to the beautiful city of Hania (or Chania...there's no good transliteration of the Greek 'X' to the Latin script; it is approximately a throat-clearing sound).
On the fast National Road, this is a 1.5 or 2-hour drive, but we dawdled along and made a day of it. On one section of mountainous …
... though it is winter, the sunshine was warm and out of the wind, hot enough to take off a layer of clothing. But, as it has been cold and grey over the past few days, we took a drive up the coast. We thought that we might find another quaint little town, something of interest, but no. As it is still low season, the coast was full of closed shops and closed resorts which made the towns look very sad.

Historical Traveler Reviews Vilelmine S.A. Chania
Ich war im Vilelmine als weiblicher Singlegast untergekommen und es fühlte sich an, als wenn ich mit Familie da war. Das gesamte Personal war sehr freundlich und im Hotel fühlte man sich sehr sicher. Es hat eine sehr zentrale und hübsche Lage, vor allem für weibliche Gäste, die nachts nicht mehr so lange unterwegs sein wollen. Antonis und seine Familie haben mich ausführlich über die lokalen Gegebenheiten informiert. Die Zimmer waren modern und sehr komfortabel eingerichtet und hatten Charakter und Charme. Im Vergleich mit den hohen Preisen auf Kreta, war dieses ein ausgezeichnetes Angebot. Ich würde ohne zu zögern anderen Reisenden, inklusive Familien und Paaren, dieses Hotel empfehlen und ich hoffe, dass ich selbst noch einmal nach Chania reisen werde.
the vilelmine hotel is a wonderfully restored family house that has recently been opened as a hotel. the quality of materials used are second to none and no expense has been spared in providing the finest soft furnishings, double glazing and furniture.
Hotel Vilelmine is an ideal base from which to explore the incredible beauty, history, and culture of Chania. The four-story hotel was beautifully renovated by a young brother-sister team that grew up on one of the floors of the home. The hotel is located on a picturesque square next to a historic cathedral in the heart of Chania within walking distance to numerous restaurants and shops. We spent our days exploring the many beautiful narrow streets and pathways that make Chania unique. The hotel itself is a site for anyone that appreciates historic preservation, adorned with pristine hard wood floors and lovely fixtures. Rooms are tastefully furnished and equipped with individual balconies with views of the city.
I stayed at the Vilelmine as a solo female traveller and felt like I was staying with family. All the staff were so friendly and the hotel felt very safe. It was so central and ideally located, especially for a female alone not wanting to go too far at night. Antonis and his family could not help me enough with local info and directions and provided modern, very comfortable rooms with character and charm. Compared with some of the high prices of Crete, this was excellent value. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to any travellers, families and couples included, and will hope to stay here if i visit Chania again myself.
Our weeks Honeymoon at the beautiful Vilelmine Hotel in the heart of 'Old Chania' was memorable for many reasons.
Recommended by a friend, we were very pleased to find this hotel, superb interior, food breakfast, friendly people, perfect location.
We recommend it to everybody!
Thanks for the nice stay, Antonis !

My wife and I stayed four nights at the newly opened Vilelmine Hotel in early July 2005. Our stay was at the end of a two week holiday on Crete and Santorini, and preceded a one week visit to Paris. Although we had good accommodation wherever we traveled, the Vilelmine was the gem of the 7 hotels we stayed at during our holiday.

Vilelmine Hotel, Chania, Crete. After six weeks travelling round Europe, my wife and I wanted a great location to relax and prepare for all the mundane things that must happen at the end of a holiday, like going back to work, and receiving credit card statements. We spent six nights here. It is a small family run hotel, we found Antonis and his family, freindly and attentive. The rooms are very large, well furnished and comfortable, ours had a small balcony overlooking the square, with a view to the lighthouse and the Cretan Sea. The place was always very clean and presentable.
Nice hotel in old city
It is nice cosy hotel in old city. The hotel is situated in several steps from a quarter of old pedestrian streets and in several minutes by walk from the old Venetian harbor.
My husband and I stayed in Vilelmine hotel in September. We liked a friendly atmosphere and good service, and also excellent spacious room in which there is even an Internet.
