Halepa Hotel was built in the 4th quarter of the 19th Century by a wealthy merchant and its design follows the New Classical style period. It was used during the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s (the era of Cretan Democracy) as the Embassy building of the British. During that time, it played a very important role in the Cretan history.
Many significant treaties have been signed in this area. In the year 1990, it was renovated and a new 42- room wing was attached.
The new wing was carefully constructed so that the magnificence of the old structure could be maintained unaltered. The hotel has operated since then with great success.
Halepa is a beautiful, quiet and historical suburb of Chania. During the Cretan Democracy, this suburb was the home of many wealthy merchants and politicians, so it became the center of the diplomatic activities in Crete.
The Greek Embassy, the old French Academy, the « Palace » of Prince George and his private picturesque Russian-style Saint Magdaline church, the house of Venizelos (one of the most successful statesmen in Greek modern history), are a few of the historic buildings located in this area. Many important decisions and events marked this area of Chania.

The main building of the hotel is surrounded by a spacious green garden. The carefully- placed Palm trees add a special colour to the garden, especially at night.
