The proprietor and manager, Antonio, made this small but charming place special. His daily smile, upbeat greetings and genuine enthusiasm raised the bar. The delicious smells coming from the kitchen didn't hurt either...

Wanted to love it but didn´tPosted 24/06/2013 on Hotels.com
It was pretty upon first entering. Arrived late at night and owner accommodating of this. Room was clean however not good. Asked for double and were given twin single beds without prior notification. Air conditioner loud at night. Thought it was raining on the first night however it was the air conditioner leaking. Beds very hard. Surrounds noisy at night time. Breakfast nice but nothing too impressive.

One night stay, a few minutes from Chania Old TownPosted 26/09/2012 on Hotels.com
This is a charming small hotel (8 rooms) run by a very helpful and enthusiastic Italian chap and his wife, its reasonably priced for where it is located and in a quiet area despite being very close to the old town and harbour, it was very clean and well presented, breakfast was good continental style with freshly made orange juice and coffee either taken in a small quant courtyard or on the raised street side tables watching the world go by, the owner recommend a nearby batr or a last ouzo which had Cretan singers and musicians playng til about 1 am in a bar with no roof, very atmospheric. The rooms had TV, aircon, good towels etc.

A very special experiencePosted 03/09/2012
Pros: ambiance, character, view, location
Cons: weak water pressure on top floor - but not terrible
Location: heart of the Old Town
Located in the heart of the old city, the Bozzali is charming very small hotel (6 rooms) with a good ambiance. We spent 3 wonderful nights there, hosted by Antonio, an amateur historian and a real personality. The location is superb for walking in the Old Town and harbor area. Our room, #6, was on the top floor (3 flights up), and had windows in all directions, through which a wonderful evening breeze wafted to cool us, and afforded us magnificent views. The white cotton curtains and pleasant bed linens added to the simple comfort and Cretan atmosphere. The refrigerator in the room was a plus. Breakfast was simple but tasty. Minuses: The water pressure on the top floor was a bit weak. The beds are not joinable. Highly recommended for discerning travelers!

Bozzali Hotel Chania combines stylish & originalPosted 16/10/2011 on Hotels.com
Located in the middle of the Old Town of Chania, the front of this 8 bedroom hotel - based on two 3 storey town houses joined together via a small internal courtyard - sits over the characterful small Bozzali 'Vin & Pain' wine bar and overlooks the old walls of the Kastelli (originally the heart of the Venetian fortress and harbour of Chania). Full of history, the area lies a couple of hundred metres from the main tourist retail and leisure areas of Old Chania and the Old Harbour, with its museums and art galleries and boats to look at. Lots to see and do for a week or so, especially if you hire a car and drive along the coast or up into the mountains. There are loads of restaurants and bars down along the harbour and in the back streets nearby but the Bozzali sits in a quiet backwater that we found very peaceful and quiet. This a small, quite trendy upgrade of two traditional Venetian-Cretan houses. We were in Room 4, a generous sized, simple-but-stylish room with timber floorboards and ceiling and white walls, twin beds with quality bed linen, side tables alongside, a roomy built-in wardrobe, a small stylish marble topped table with cast iron legs and a couple of cream suede-covered chairs. There was a small but good quality TV which receives a variety of Greek stations, BBC 24 and France 24. There is no balcony but the room has three large windows, a high ceiling, a ceiling fan and air conditioning (we did not need this when we stayed). The ensuite bathroom is modern and nicely fitted out with a shower, sink and loo. We found that the hotel owner (Antonio - a laid back and sophisticated Italian who has run the Bozzali for 8 years and improved and extended it over that time) and staff were very nice, knowledgable and helpful - nothing was too much trouble but the atmosphere was homely and relaxed. The Bozzali Italian cafe/wine bar has a few tables inside the ground floor and another few on the wide elevated walkway outside, which has an interesting outlook to one of the Old Town streets and the Kastelli walls. It serves a range of good Italian wines - a sign says definately no soft drinks! The whole place - both the Old Town and the Hotel and cafe/wine bar - have a very nice, relaxed and homely but quite trendy feel. We had a buffet continental breakfast in the cafe/wine bar each morning as part of the Bed and Breakfast tariff and also eat there one evening when the end-of-season weather was cool and rainy. The food was simple but with good quality ingredients and service was friendly but discreet. We really liked the place. Things to be aware of are: 1) There are steps from the street outside up to the main pedestrian walkway from which the hotel and cafe-bar are accessed. The entrance to the hotel is up the quiet little pedestrian side-street accessed off the walkway fronted by the Bozzali Vin et Pain wine bar. 2) This hotel does not have a lift and the rooms are accessed by staircase up to the first and second floors, with the cafe/bar, kitchen and reception on the ground floor. 3) Apart from the wine bar tables on the walkway there are no external space or hotel grounds. However we found that the fantastically convenient yet quiet location in the heart of the old town and the proximity of the harbour front more than compensated for that, 4) It is a significant walk to a nice swimming beach (about 5-10 minutes drive in a taxi or rented car if you hire one as we did). We liked the beautiful beaches to the west of the town, where there are clean well-organised beaches with golden sand, sun beds (7 euros for 2 beds for the day), showers, changing rooms if you feel shy and clean toilets. There is also shade at the back fo the beaches. We went at the end of the season and they were still clean and well-maintained. Each beach has a small cafe/beach bar selling drinks and snacks at reasonable prices. If you just want a beach holiday then you probably need to look elsewhere but if you want a mix of entertainment and beach and have access to a car or bike then this is a good location. 5) Car parking on street adjoining the hotel is difficult to find, although we were able to double park and drop off or pick up our luggage when arriving and departing. We found a large free car park about 5 minutes walk away. Because the hotel is in the old town we found it a little tricky to find on our arrival, but that was mainly due to our poor map. If arriving by car make sure you get a detailed map and directions to get you through the winding maze of narrow streets into the heart of the old town, most of which are one-way. 6) There is no hotel sign on the main street frontage (the hotel entrance is up the little side street) but you should be able to spot the 'Bozzali Vin et Pain' sign for the cafe/bar. Overall - this is a real 'find' if you are looking for a small, quiet and characterful hotel close to the main attractions of historic Chania. We had a week in a beach location and a week here - and this made for a really interesting fortnight's stay on Crete.

Nice small hotel in the middle of old town ChaniaPosted 09/09/2010
Nice owners. Walking distance to everything we came to Chania to see. Tricky to find hotel unless you go all the way to old town and port. Satisfied with stay and would go back. It would be helpful to have pictures of the 8 different rooms and be able to book the room you think fits best.
