Casa Delfino Hotel & Spa

A grand Venetian mansion on Crete’s sparkling northwest coast

Tucked away in the Venetian Quarter with a roof terrace and set of suites overlooking Chania’s charming harbour, Casa Delfino epitomises old world glamour. A beautifully restored 17th-century Venetian mansion, it’s clear why the same family have held onto it since 1835. With its enviable Old Town location, far-reaching ocean views, and warm Greek hospitality, this is a boutique hotel that brings together the very best of Crete. 

Casa Delfino wears its vibrant history proudly. Original stone walls and elegant marble floors are the backdrop to handpicked Italian furnishings and antiques in its characterful rooms and suites . The hotel’s breakfasts celebrate timeless Cretan flavours, while the Old Town’s brightly coloured buildings, shops and cafés are just moments from your door. After exploring, relax in the private spa.  Then sip a cocktail in the elegant rooftop garden as the sun goes down – and the town’s famous Venetian lighthouse lights up.

The sea is the star of the show here – as is the hotel’s concierge service, which can take you on a variety of private tours. Discover hilltop fortresses, the ancient archaeological site of Knossos, and some of the most beautiful beaches in Crete such as Balos and Elafonissi. There’s plenty to discover inland, too, including mountain villages and hiking trails that wind their way through Samaria Gorge.

Margarita Markantonakis

Independent Minds: Margarita Markantonaki

Something special radiates from the original stone walls of this beautifully restored 17th century Venetian mansion, a heartfelt feeling of homeliness which can only be found in family-run hotels. Now in the hands of sixth generation hotelier Margarita Markantonaki, Casa Delfino is steeped in history which all started in 1835 when Giovanni Delfino, a knight and ship owner who travelled widely across the Mediterranean, was shipwrecked in Crete.

Beautiful hotel in a perfect location with a wonderful staff

we love the location, easy access to parking and walking for dinner

Amazing hospitality and wonderful staff

This hotel was everything we could have hoped for. The room was very comfortable and luxurious. The AC was cold, the shower was hot, and the bed comfortable.

The hotel in the old town of Chania is very nice.

The differently designed rooms are beautifully furnished and very clean. The service is good. The breakfast offering with freshly prepared egg dishes is also good.

The hotel is superbly situated at center of the old town and service is great.

View of the sea and lighthouse in the morning was spectacular to wake up to in the morning. The hotel is walking distance to Chania's best restaurants.

Amazing Venetian palace in the middle of old town

Lovingly restored, family run luxury palace. It felt like you were visiting someone's home. All of the staff go out of their way to help you from Chrissy the manager on down. I think this is because of owner of the hotel, Margarita, is on site and lead by example. Margarita showed us how they renovated Read more[SPLIT]Read lessthis family retreat into the hotel it is today. And I had one of the best deep tissue massages I have ever had from Maya. Would definitely return.
