Our friendly staff with a warm smile is always at the service of our customers to inform them of the daily excursions and also the night life in our city.
The traditional hotel Palazzo di Pietro is situated at the picturesque alleys of the old town of Chania, near the Cathedral. The building dates back to the 13th century, to the period of the Venetian colonization in Crete, and was inhabited by our ancestors. It is a manor that was renovated with lots of love and effort and managed to regain the glory of its initial state.
The years left their mark on the building that was plagued many times, mainly from the bombardment during the Second World War, when the whole town of Chania suffered great damages. The building was enhanced statically and all the wooden beams and floors were replaced by excellent quality wood. The stone doorframes were given prominence to so that the original extent of the building is noticeable, since only a “small” part of the Venetian manor belongs to the family today.
The building restoration, following the instructions of the Greek Archeological Service, began in 1999 and was finished in 2001. It was conducted with the utmost respect to the tradition and history of the building and having as its upper goal to give the opportunity to its visitors to get acquainted with a part the Greek cultural heritage. The most recent renovation took place on 2020.
