We are looking for a hotel for a few days stay in Chania in June. We like to be centrally located in the old part of a city, close to restaurants and sights, and we generally choose small, family-run hotels or B&Bs. We stay in pretty inexpensive places (100 euro/night or less, and often much less), although we do like to have an ensuite bathroom (a change from the backpacking days of our youth!). We have been looking at two options in Chania and would like any opinions or comparisons:
Thereza, west of Halidhon, near the Naval Museum
Kasteli, east of Halidhon
What are the main differences/advantages/disadvantages in being in the area east of or west of Halidhon?
The Thereza is variously described as older and charming or "run-down" with a great view. We like charm and views, not too run-down. But is the location too far from central?
The Kasteli is described as more modern. Is the location significantly better??
Many thanks for any tips or even alternative suggestions.
