Housed in an imposing 15th-century Venetian mansion that has undergone a full renovation, Serenissima is a 5-star hotel located right in the center of the picturesque town of Chania. Being a stone’s throw from the beach, which is 100 m away, and a mere 30 m from the commercial heart of Chania, where all the eateries, shops, and main attractions lie, the location of Serenissima Hotel is one of its highest selling points.

This upscale hotel brings together history with luxury and 21-century comforts to deliver an unforgettable accommodation experience that will upgrade your trip to Crete. Apart from the historic building, Serenissima’s facilities are a sight to behold. All of the rooms feature arched ceilings, as well as an elegant decoration of furnishing that fuses tradition with contemporary design.

In addition to its magnificent facilities, Serenissima will impress you with its exclusive services and luxurious amenities. The entirety of the rooms includes a comfortable seating space with a plush sofa and a flat-screen TV, a dining area, and a modern bathroom equipped with branded personal-care products.

In Serenissima, you will be introduced to the riches of Cretan cuisine through a variety of traditional dishes prepared by the hotel’s top-rated chef. Taste delicacies that bring together the fusion of time-honored recipes with contemporary cooking techniques and see for yourself what the hype surrounding Greek gastronomy is all about. Serenissima Restaurant serves its immaculate creations either onsite, in a scenic narrow street in the old harbor, in the hotel’s dining room, or in your private porch. The premium wine bar of the hotel will also give you the opportunity to taste luscious wines of Greek and international labels. To enrich your stay in the hotel, indulge in one of Serenissima’s spa services, and try the unique experience of a restored traditional Hammam that promises moments of peace and relaxation.

Why we love it

The wine bar is to-die-for and gives you the option of trying excellent wine labels by the glass; don’t hesitate to ask for the sommelier’s advice.

The hotel’s staff will make you feel right at home; it will be as if you’ve made friends with the locals!

There are only a few things cooler than staying in a 15th-century Venetian house; it makes for the perfect setting for all your vacation stories.

Make the most out of your stay in Senerissima by booking the ‘Superior Suite With Terrace’ perfect both for honeymooners and families.
