The boutique hotel Mama Nena is part of the history of the old town of Chania. His story begins in the Middle Ages, specifically during the years of Venetian rule, especially in the 15th century when the city around the fortified hill of Kastelli began to develop. Over the centuries, the building had no definite shape. The results in restoration work (doors and windows) demonstrate the variety of uses of the building through the ages. The current form came in the early 20th century and at that time, the building became the property of our family. In the early 20th century the family of our grandmother Matina moved from Piraeus to Chania, the birthplace of his mother Argyri. The construction of the hotel Mama Nena became their home until 1975. The house became a witness of many personal stories ... grandmother was standing on the balcony as a teenager when she first saw our grandfather. And thereafter, every day for ten years, he used to walk past his balcony, looking up only to watch it. And she stood on the balcony and waited for him to come ... They lived for many years with their families in this house before the war. Our Nena grew up in this house and left it as a "Bride" to make his own house. The history of this house is connected to the personal stories of four women of the family: our great grandmother Argyri, our grandmother, sister and mother Nena Matina. The sweetness in their eyes, the warmth of their smile, so what they represented, were kept in their furniture, lighting, furniture and personal effects that we have kept to give the hotel its heat and atmosphere. In 2007, we began a radical restoration of the building with its transformation into a modern, comfortable and stylish. It was structurally reinforced and coated with environmentally friendly materials and modern quality that conform to the original form and style of the building. In full compliance with the rules for heritage buildings of the Ministry of Culture, we ended up completely renovated and refurbished retaining the historic features of the old house in combination with the facilities of a modern guest house. Our objectives were to authenticity, quality, comfort and elegance. Andy Kontoudakis Takis, our talented interior designer, has given the utmost care and attention to detail to achieve the current result.
