IASON STUDIOS IN THE PICTURESQUE OLD TOWN, HANIA, CRETE

Chania Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Iason Studios is a small family business and includes five studios in a two-storey building with private bathroom, kitchen facilities, and balcony.

The building was renovated originally in 1999 and then in 2005 and is situated on the west side of the old town, in the quiet area of "Topanas", with no traffic, just a few meters from the old Venetian harbour where you can find most of the historical sites of the city of Hania as well as many places for entertainment.

A major pole of attraction is the old city, with the old Venetian harbour. On the west side, the castle of Firkas, where the Naval Museum lies(:this is the area of IASON STUDIOS.) On the opposite side of the harbour, the Venetian arsenals (shipyards) of the 16th century. There are also other Museums, Exhibitions, Nightlife and Shops. The town never stops to amaze you!

As an alternative you may take day excursions to the unique Samaria Gorge (the biggest in Europe), Kournas Lake, exotic beaches of Elafonisi, Falassarna, Gramvoussa, Balos (where you can take a mini cruise, too).

Sail South Crete by Ferry (Hora Sfakion, Agia Roumeli, Sougia). Explore unspoiled villages around Chania, eat their local produce. Of course a visit to Knossos and the Archaeological Heraklion Museum is a must.

All these and even more make Hania unforgettable.

On the other hand if you prefer to have a break in Hania in wintertime, you have one more reason to come to our studios, as we alone in the whole old town offer central heating.

As a matter of fact, November to March rates are negotiable-according to number of persons and length of stay- because it's quite often to have longer renters during winter time.So we have a different arrangement in that case, with a major discount per month.

This is a usual policy for us, since there are many people - both from abroad and Greeks - that choose to stay in Hania for the wintertime.

The units are in the same building, so they're ideal for a group of friends or families. Nevertheless, they may be let out separately, as each unit has all the necessary equipment -even hair dryers- to make your stay most comfortable.

CURRENTLY WE ARE PROUD TO INCLUDE WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICES!

It is important to mention that you will be provided with any kind of information you may need, as the owners know so many details about the prefecture of Hania and West Crete in general. So, you can easily find your way to sunny beaches, clear waters, very busy or isolated places, and even high mountains with a breathtaking view.

Since the studios have been restored by the owners themselves, they have warmth, relaxed atmosphere, nothing like impersonal hotel rooms. So, you'll find have everything to make you feel at home: a friendly - family atmosphere!

Looking forward to meeting you in Hania,

Stelios, Despina, Iason and little George.

SO NICE WE BOOKED ONE WEEK AND STAYED FOR A SECOND

  • 5 of 5
Really loved this as a stress free place to spend some time. The owner recommended restaurants and tavernas that were all good. Shopping at the market and street markets for fresh fruits and veggies was great. Central heating, satellite TV and ability to do laundry all added to the experience.

FABULOUS LOCATION TO EXPLORE CHANIA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 10 sleeps at Iason Studios in old town Chania, Crete before sailing north to the Adriatic. We walked around old Chania every day, enjoying the narrow cobbled streets, or sitting by the sea watching the surf or the sail boats. We read novels & relaxed. It was great. The location of Iason Studios is fabulous ~ safe, convenient, & close to grocery stores, restaurants, or gelato shops!!!
We appreciated having a kitchen to prepare our own meals, as eating out is difficult with food sensitivities. Despina is the most hospitable & kind individual we could possibly meet while traveling. She shared ideas on where to go, where to eat, & responded to all our inquiries so positively. She is like GOLD to any traveler who stays in Chania.
Thanks Despina for your one-of-a-kind hospitality and the wonderful stay in your apartment. If ever we return to Crete, you will be the first person we contact.

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY IN COLORFUL, HISTORIC CHANIA

  • 5 of 5
This was a delightful experience for us! The accommodations were so comfortable, clean and customer centered! Despina is a wonderful host and befriends all of her clients. She is a lovely person, always willing to help, suggest, and provide directions for accessing all that Crete and the town of Hania has to offer. Despina goes above and beyond expectations in her services. We felt so at home with a kitchen to provide for convenience while the promenade provided a taste of tradition. The maid service was also remarkable with the apartment maintained meticulously every day. We will definitely go back to Crete and we will definitely stay at the Iason Studios with Despina again. One of our most relaxing holidays ever! Thank you Despina! I look forward to keeping in touch.

OUR STAY AT IASON STUDIOS

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I stayed in Chania at Iason Studios for 5 weeks this summer in one of the lovely studios. I cannot explain what a great experience this was for us and how appreciative we are of the owner for showing such hospitality and kindness to us. The studios are absolutely gorgeous, clean and affordable. Each is equipped with more than enough to get you by and you can do your own cooking with the stove, refrigerator and provided kitchenware. There is a very nice lady who comes to clean the room daily to keep everything tidy and fresh. They are centrally located in a safe area with restaurants, beaches and shops very close by. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Chania to stay at Iason Studios, as we found the location through this website and were very pleased with the results. We hope to visit Chania again in the future and see Despina and our new friends in Greece and we will definitely choose Iason Studios as our accommodation again!

STAYING AT IASON STUDIOS WITH DESPINA AS THE OWNER MADE HANIA HEAVENLY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Iason Studios for six nights in June of 2010. After some problems with the airlines and not arriving in Crete for almost 30 hours, it was so comforting and reassuring to know that Despina had rearranged the taxi for us, which was one less thing for us to worry about. She was even there to greet us and help us to the studios from the taxi at 10pm at night! Even though it was late, she took her time to acquaint us with the hotel, answer questions, and even brought us a tray with fruit, nuts and Raki to welcome us to Crete. The location is perfect-in walking distance to almost anywhere in Old Hania (the Harbour) and New Hania too. The cobblestone streets and small shops added to the old-world ambiance that typifies this very safe and inviting area. Her studios were very clean, roomy and were stocked with all the necessities (even a cold thermos of water in the 'fridge for us) we might need for our stay. Despina is fluent in English, and did so much to help us in any way that she could. She recommended places to see, restaurants to dine at, did our laundry and even assisted us in changes to a car rental. Having gone on to other areas in Greece, and seeing what other lodging facilities offer and/or don't include, the Iason Studios were by far, over and above any other place we stayed in the country. This kind of service and accomodations for these hotel rates is just amazing-this hotel and the area comes highly recommended. Book this hotel now!!!!!!!!!
