Chania Urban Living – a climatic oasis in hot Crete

Chania Urban Living is an atmospheric and tastefully decorated place, located 15 km from the airport in Chania. There are 9 independent apartments in this four-storey building. The entire space has been arranged so as to allow guests to have a comfortable and peaceful rest.

A place tailored to your needs

Chania Urban Living is located in the southern part of the city, in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. In the vicinity there are small shops, a bakery and two restaurants. The walk to the Venetian Harbor takes less than half an hour. By car, you can reach the center in 7 minutes. 1.5 km from Chania Urban Living is Lidl where you can do more shopping.

The smallest of the suites in Chania Urban Living – number 8 – has 35 sq m and is located on the third floor. It has been arranged in the style of a penthouse. The apartment consists of a kitchenette connected to the living room and a bedroom area. The suite has a large terrace equipped with a hanging wicker armchair, allowing guests to relax outdoors.

The largest suites – numbers 4 and 7 are 80 sq m. Each of them has two bedrooms, a kitchen, a dining area with a seating area, a bathroom, and a balcony.

We chose suite number 3 for just a 4-day stay in Crete. The apartment on the ground floor has 45 sq m and consists of a kitchenette with a seating area, a bedroom and a bathroom. Partition walls – made of glass were one of the most interesting elements of the arrangement. Interestingly, such an idea for decor has a chance to work not only in the case of couples. Because if someone needs more privacy, it is enough to cover the glass walls with curtains. 

The original interior trim and accessories are certainly elements that give this interior a unique expression. However, Chania Urban Living is more than just a nice vacation place to sleep. There are also practical and functional solutions and full equipment when it comes to available equipment, including a TV set, fridge, electric hob, microwave oven and air conditioning.

Wow effect

Some of the suites are also equipped with washing machines. Ours did not have it, but still it was possible to refresh your clothes for free and use the washing machine and dryer available in the building. There was only one condition, and it required you to have your own detergents.

Additionally, an iron and a mini ironing board could be found in the room. Motorists could use the free parking lot behind the building or leave their car on the street. On request, the facility also lends beach towels and sun umbrellas.

On the roof of the building there was a space called Honesty Bar, where from 10 am to 10 pm you could taste wine from local wineries. The only requirement was to settle accounts with the hotel employee for the tipple drunk on the following day 🙂

The tap water was safe to drink and the warm water was 100% naturally heated thanks to the use of solar panels. Both check-in and check-out could be done independently. The main entrance could be opened with a dedicated code and the suite was ready with the keys in the door.

I would also like to express my appreciation to Aggeliki from Chania Urban Living, who helped with both organizational matters and advice on places worth visiting.

Chania Urban Living is an ideal option for people who, on the one hand, want to be close to the city, but at the same time have a great base for exploring Crete. I am convinced that it will also appeal to those who appreciate peace, comfort and relaxation in a cosy atmosphere.
