Experience SanSal Boutique Hotel
SanSal is a new boutique hotel located in Chania, a spectacular location on the northwest coast of the island of Crete. Modern, minimalistic yet luxurious, the hotel is nestled just a block away from San Salvador Bastion, part of a landmark deeply rooted in the history of the city of Chania and the culture developed within and outside of its walls.
Chania is known to be one of the most historically rich Greek cities with history that goes back more than 2500 years. A history of many different cultures, and diverse people of the greater south Mediterranean region that have all added their own unique element to build the town that stands today. San Salvatore was a Franciscan Monastery. The Venetians built the Monastery after the 4th Crusade, on the west side of the harbour, where originally a Byzantine church existed. Preserved to this day, this small domed chapel on the east side was expanded to the north and west in three phases from the 15th century (or earlier) until the late Venetian period (middle of 17th century). Today the church houses the Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection of Chania.
The area sits next to the Venetian port. The central attraction of the town with a constant flow of people arriving from all over the world to witness the architectural manifestation of the cultural magma that has shaped the city through its history.
In a short distance from the centre of Chania, easy to access and with a variety of food and entertainment options, Akti Kanari is ideal for those who want to be close enough to get the vibe of the city yet far away from its crowded alleys.
