Great small hotel in a wonderful location. Right in the middle of old town Chania with our balcony on the cathedral square. Close to great restaurants. Managers/owners Adonis and Marie were totally accommodating. Can't really say enough about how nice our stay there was.

We were desperate for a spot with strong wifi where we could do some work and take some video-conference calls, since the wifi at our stay was not reliable. After shopping around Chania for good wifi, we finally reached Vilelmine. The wifi is excellent, with high-speed connection that was stronger and more reliable than the city wifi or any of...

When i visit Chania I like to stay in teh old town, in order to have easy access and no need of car to all the restaurants and bars and shopping, that are walking distance from the hotel. Vilelmini gives you the feeling of a traditional home with home made breakfast and marmalade, a cozy room that feels like your...

We stayed for a week, the hotel is very central situated in the square in front of the Cathedral. All places of interest are close by, walking distance. We will definitely be visiting again .The Hotel itself is very special,serving breakfast in the square, the yoghurt 'creation' is simply amazing, something to dream about when you get home.

I really liked the room. It was very cosy. We booked it when there was an offer. And it was a room with two single beds. I asked in the booking for the beds to be joined. Instead they gave us a family room with double and single bed with no extra charge!! The room was very clean especially the...

We stayed at Vilelmine for two nights. The location is superb, near the main shopping street of Chania. I liked that the building was old/traditional but carefully renovated. The staff was very kind and helpful. One may also enjoy coffee /snacks at the cafe at back of the building, overlooking a magnificent square.

I came to Chania with my family in April 2016. Antonis and Maria greeted all nine of us with such warmth and fabulous hospitality to their Vilelmine Hotel. The Vilelmine is a family run hotel business which provides a very special, personable touch.
