Ambassadors Residence - Chania
Crete - Chania Area

Ambassadors Residence is located along the quay of the 700-year-old Venetian port of Chania and grants a sense of modern comfort and luxury to this historic, neoclassical building from the 1890s. The building was the private residence of German Ambassador R. Krüger and his wife Wilhelmine, and was built in 1890 when the Ambassador first arrived on the island.

The Ambassadors Residence is located right on the docks of the old harbour and next to the Grand Arsenal - the Centre of Mediterranean Architecture. It is the first Boutique hotel of its kind in Chania. The hotel is next to the Old Town and city centre and to the fantastic sandy beach of Nea Chora.

Each of the thirteen rooms at Ambassadors matches the materials Krüger traded, namely porcelain, wood, glass, fabric, cement, ceramics, paper, mosaic tiles, metal, brick, stone, mineral and vitraux. All rooms boast a contemporary and elegant design with subtle touches that highlight the heart-warming Cretan land and people. Organic textures, traditional furnishings, environmentally friendly decoration and old material recycling complement elegant, modern lines. Flooded with natural light thanks to large windows, the rooms fully meet your every need.
