This intimate boutique hotel is located in the seafront of the 700 years old ×Venetian port of Chania and embodies the very essence of chic comfort and a modern luxury feeling in a historical neoclassical building in Crete.
The building used to be the private residence of Ambassador R. Kruger and his wife ×Vilelmine, that built it during 1890 when he first came to the Island. Kruger was a very complex personality, as he had studied archaeology, beaux arts and economics. He was a lover of photography and created a lot of post cards referring to the city, that have been saved until today. He reopened with the help of ×Vilelmine the Pet Rescue Association and rescued a lot of antiquities found neglected in the villages nearby. He influenced a lot the historical events of his time as a diplomat but also the economy and technology of the first years of the ×Greek Cretan people. So as a reference to these material benefits he made in the local economy, the design concept was that each room will be unique and depict in a contemporary way Kruger‘s benefits to the island. The design concept is cool, contemporary and stylish but with a warm heart and authentic Cretan soul. Its sleek, modern lines are complemented by organic textures, natural furnishings, an eco-friendly approach and the reuse of old materials. The Mediterranean sun is filling all the rooms of the building through big windows and skylights. It’s 360 view of the sea and old harbor of Chania would leave the guests astonished.
