“Beautiful house, fabulous views, perfect location”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 for a stay in January 2012

I've stayed at Dorothy's Dream more than once, it is a fabulous house with great character and beauty from its Venetian roots, but at the same time all the modern amenities necessary to make for a most delightful stay. And the location couldn't better--walking distance to most things, the old centre of town, excellent restaurants, beach, old harbor--and, since it's on the uppermost story of the building, the views of the harbor and mountains from the rooms are phenomenal.

“As good as it gets”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 for a stay in September 2013

This is an unforgettable place. We cherished every moment we spent in the lovingly and stylishly renovated old palazzo. Top marks for taste, comfort, breathtaking views. With the old harbor of Chania at our feet, we were right in the middle of things - but without the inconveniences. We recommend it unreservedly.

“Dorothy's dream come true”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 for a stay in May 2013

If you ever wished for a holiday dream to come true- this is where you need to go.
Best location, situated on top of the old Bycantine fortification, in the old Venetian harbour you can begin your day with a rooftop breafast. Later explore the Old Town, right at the bottom of your staircase. In the evenings you can either stay in and enjoy the lovely look over the old harbour or choose from a large variety of taverns, all a stone's throw from the house.
The house is lovingly furnished and so spacious that it accomodates three families without getting crowded.
We always spend two weeks in Chania and are looking forward to this year's stay. It has become our home from home.
