Guides, and praise from visitors

“So we got here all squint eyed and tired, and set about locating our pension (a small rooming house), Pension Lena. After some arrangements we got our room, which is without compare! It is on the top floor of this wonderful narrow little three storey building, windows all around the walls, soft blue paint, old old pictures on the walls, breezy white curtains, antique furniture…it is so cool, it is a steal! Ours is the only room on the top floor, up a spiralling staircase, across from a wonderful little terrace on the roof. It is awesome, and I will take lots of pictures.” – Monoclaw

“Arrived in Chania at about 9:10pm….walking out of the baggage claim….I saw a man in his 30s holding a sign with my name on it. I was never so happy and relieved to see a stranger at the airport in my life! Lena had arranged a taxi to come get me! He greeted me with a smile and said,”Pension Lena?” I said, “Yes.” ” – S F Velogirl

“Last summer we spent two nights at the Pension Lena in the old town of Chania, a short distance from the harbor. The rooms were clean and had the basic features you would need. It also has a lot of character.” – Rod Averich, Michigan, USA

“Die Pension Lena liegt mitten in Chania, unweit der Hafenpromenade. Es ist eine kleine urige Unterkunft. Die Vermieterin ist eine Deutsche. Die Preise sind günstig, die Zimmer einfach und zweckmäßig. Die Abwicklung vor Ort sehr unkompliziert. Auch kurzfristig oft noch ein Zimmer frei.” – ChaniaReiseTipps

“Gezellig pensionnetje met een warm en vriendelijk onthaal. Hier voelt u zich onmiddellijk thuis!” – Essential Greece
