  based on 8 reviews

If you wish for your holidays and your stay in Chania to be marked by the charm of a land with a rich history, tradition and beauty which combines the old with the modern and the countryside with the city life, then the “Hotel Elia Bettolo” is your best choice.

The “Hotel Elia Bettolo” is in the historic center of Chania at the back of the town’s Cathedral, in one of the liveliest quarters of the town. Its location lends itself for a walk to all the sights of the old town including the Venetian harbor, the Municipal Market, the Archaeological Museum, the Municipal Gallery, the Hebrew synagogue etc. and for a tour around the alleys that take you back in time and history.

Right next to the hotel is Skrydlof street, the leather street of Chania or “Stivanadika” as it is best known, where most of the town’s shoemakers would make and sell the Cretan boots. This narrow street gives a distinct hue to the area and a feel one is in the middle of a bazaar.

The “Hotel Elia Bettolo” combines a modern décor with the traditional features of the old town. It consists of 20 rooms, each equipped with air conditioning, fridge, satellite TV, phone, hair-dryer, safe vault, and an espresso coffee maker.

In our breakfast buffet, we offer traditional Cretan delicacies as well as treats from all over Greece along with hot and cold beverages.

As entrance to vehicles is not permitted in the old town, should you need to park your car, you can do so in one of the municipal parking lots located 100-150 meters from the hotel or in the surrounding streets wherever parking is allowed.

It was a treat to stay at the Elia Botelo hotel - excellent all round value.

So pleased I found this fabulous boutique hotel on line. Very close to everything, but quite quiet for sleeping. Only 2 blocks from bus station as I made many bus trips to coastal locations. Breakfast was a delightful feast. Staff were very attentive. Many cafes in surrounding streets for meals or coffee. Shopping heaven too for those who want this. Variety of museums to visit. Was even an inspiring concert in the main square featuring opera arias, on the Sat night of my stay. Excellent value all round. I enjoyed my stay in Chania because of this hotel.

Hotellet har ett perfekt läge i gamla stan, utan trafik. Vi bodde på översta våningen med stor balkong och fantastisk utsikt.Frukosten får högt betyg, både varma o kalla rätter.Personalen var mycket hjälpsam när det t ex gällde att kolla upp busstider.Rummet var fläckfritt med stort badrum, morgonrockar, tofflor, kaffemaskin och litet kylskåp.

Lovely hotel in the heart of the old town

Have just spent two wonderful weeks at Hotel Betolo. The location is fantastic, situated next to Cathedral and surrounded by restaurants, bars and charming shopping streets in the old town. Just a five minute walk to waterfront and old Venetian harbour. Very spacious bedroom, great views and high standard of cleanliness. Excellent staff, patient, friendly and very helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel, it is a little gem.

Lovely Hotel in Centre of Old Town

We stayed in the Elia Bettolo for 6 nights and had booked after reading reviews on here. The hotel is in the centre of Chania old town and within easy reach of all markets, restaurants and amenities. Before we arrived we had emailed the hotel and booked a taxi which greeted us at the airport for 25 Euros. The traffic is not allowed by the hotel so a short walk to it was required. No more than 2 minutes. The hotel itself was really nice. We had room 403 on the fourth floor but there is a lift. The room itself was squeaky clean with coffee machine, superb bed and even better shower. It is tastefully decorated. Breakfast was excellent with hot and cold choices including eggs, bacon, fruit, yoghurt, jams and breads etc. The staff were extremely helpful and pointed us in the right direction for authentic restaurants and also aided our trip to Samaria Gorge. We both slept like a log each night. We had a small balcony which we used to watch the world go by and whilst enjoying a beer or two. The cleaning staff ensured our room was spotless on our return each day. I would stay here again if ever in Chania.

Hotellissa oli äärimmäisen ystävällinen ja auttavainen henkilökunta. Majoituimme perheen kanssa kahteen huoneeseen, toinen oli päivitetty sviitiksi. Näköalat olivat hienot kummastakin huoneesta (molemmissa kaksi parveketta). Aamiainen oli maukas ja vaihteleva. Sijainti oli myös ihanteellinen. Suosittelen.

Abundant, unique personnel, friendly.

My second stay here is as good as the first time in Aug. '16. The staffs are professional and helpful plus always informative. Breakfast buffet is just abundant: besides those regulars you would imagine, the warm, freshly prepared dishes vary everyday during my four-day stay. Rooms are spacious and finely decorated. Location? Unbeatable. Someone still sees something..nega..Well I would not really mind that when I stay in here.

Value for money!

Staff very friendly and helpful, excellent location (3 minutes from the bus station, 3 minutes from the waterfront), the room was very modern, beds very comfy, great variety of foods at breakfast. I was impressed that the cleaning ladies would always clean the balcony every day too, something that other hotels usually neglect. Upon departure, not only we were allowed to leave our luggage until it was time to leave Chania, we were kindly advised to use the first floor lounge in case we wanted to, for as long as we wanted to. Although the prices were very reasonable, it felt like I was staying in a much more expensive hotel. Impressed!
