Mama Nena Charming Hotel, a great, small, hospitable boutique hotel with breakfast in the heart of Chania's charming Old Town, with views over the picturesque harbourfront with its venetian lighthouse and the sea.

Mama Nena is a charming, stylish, family-run boutique hotel with a homey atmosphere, open all year round – a superb option to enjoy this lovely small town and unique West Crete. The hotel has both a front view and a back view: the lighthouse and the sea to the north and the picturesque, narrow streets of the Old Town against the backdrop of the beautiful White Mountains or “Lefka Ori” to the south.

Matina, Yiorgos, or Eleni welcome you warmly as you head up the aged wooden stairs and find yourself in a warm, dove grey breakfast area. Breakfasts are full Cretan style with home-made delicacies and preserves (some of them prepared by their mother Nena), fresh fruits, and produce from the family farm, as well as other eclectic and traditional products.

It is their mother, Nena, who lived here as a girl and whose family heirlooms - a mannequin dress form, a battered leather suitcase - lie artfully scattered around, hallmarks of a personal history. The 15th century 4-storey house used to be their mother's home. The building has been fully restored with particular emphasis on quality and authenticity. The modern and minimalist surroundings recapture the atmosphere of the town house at the beginning of the 20th century.

Mama Nena Boutique Hotel offers one double room and 2 suites, each exhibiting the same refreshing style and attention to detail, but with their own individual décor.

Each room and suite is located on a separate floor of the building and each has a sea view overlooking Chania's picture-perfect harbourfront. The suites offer additional views to the picturesque back streets of the Old Town against the backdrop of the White Mountain range.

  • This is an historical Venetian building with 3 floors and without a lift (elevator). Please discuss with us if you think walking up the staircase to your room might be a problem.
  • Availability is likely to become a problem. Make your booking as soon as possible.
