I already knew inner city Chania. Neo Chora district is great fun base. Walked a lot and hired car in weekend to go to Botanical Gardens. Bus was not yet running due to winter schedule.

Feel unable to comment on nightlife, had visited the town before and enjoyed returning although both shops and restaurant owners fail to understand that pestering counter-productive

Hellenic Language School Alexander the Great

Good location (only 500 m from the hotel); good leadership by director Efi; good teachers and contacts possible with fellow students.
Everything depends on the management; not good in Athens due to slow management, fine here.
