Zambolis Studios, Chania

Set just 700 m from the scenic Venetian harbour, Zamboli provides accommodation in Chania Town. Complimentary WiFi is offered. The air-conditioned units feature a kitchen with an oven, a microwave and dining area. A balcony with city views is offered in both units. The Agora of Chania is 400m from Zamboli, while the Archaeological Museum is 500m away. The nearest airport is Chania International Airport, 14 km from the property. According to independent reviews, the area where Zamboli is located is a favourite part of the town of Chania among visitors.

Zamboli is located in the centre of Chania opposite the Town Hall, with 2 uniquely renovated 1st-floor fully furnished apartments connected with a private entrance, originally built as student accomodation. Zambia room sleeps 3, Manoli room sleeps 4. The apartments are perfect for guests who want to feel at home away from home. Each has a platform double bed base (2 mattresses, 0.8x2m ) & loft (0.9x1.9m, ladder required). Manoli has a small sofa bed (1.75m long). Both have WiFi, TV & air-conditioning, separate fully-fitted kitchen & small bathroom with wash basin, WC, spa shower column (1.87m height limit), washing machine & small street-level balcony. Water is solar-heated; windows double-glazed; suitcase storage space under the inbuilt bed (74cm/29" high with mattress - foot stool provided). Manoli also has a terrace with outdoor dining area. The two apartments can be booked together for a group (max. 7 people). Zamboli is just 200m away from all bus terminals, 700m to the Venetian port/lighthouse, near all amenities (shops, bakeries, groceries, cafes, tavernas, doctors, etc). Being in the centre of town, you'll never be far away from any major sites.

Zamboli is located in Chania's city centre, perfect for the traveller who wants a self-catering urban holiday, and a town they can get around in on foot. During the day, the area can get quite busy but it's very quiet after shops close. Even though the apartment block is located in the town centre, it is mainly residential, so you'll be sharing space with local families. Some neighbours play music, but it's usually not annoying; you may hear their taps flush! Rubbish collection can also be quite noisy. Chania's old town, the old harbour and the lighthouse are just a few minutes away on foot - everything within walking distance and very easy to reach. For those interested in urban walks, I can also offer you a walking tour showcasing some of the town's lesser known history. At the same time, you are spoilt for choice for food, drink & entertainment: souvlaki, cafes, bakeries, pastries, ice-cream, bars, pizzerias, butchers, fishmongers, supermarkets, fruit and vegetable markets, grocers, chemists, hairdressers, barbers, bookshops, drycleaners, craft shops, cellphone services, convenience stores & public transport all at your fingertips.

Dimitris Taxi Tours

Your hosts are Maria and my husband Dimitri. We both speak English, and we like to 'show off' our town to visitors. Zamboli is the unique result of our personal interest in home design. If you are interested in local culture, we can give you tips on what to do and where to eat like a local. We can also arrange your pickup from the airport for an extra fee. Dimitri is a registered taxi driver with lots of local knowledge (our cab is a Mercedes W212 and can take a maximum of 4 passengers plus suitcases). We also arrange private taxi tours, urban walks and local food tours. If you're interested in local cuisine, we can arrange a food market tour of the places where locals do their shopping and eating. (All services carry an extra charge and are available on request; all driving tours are conducted by Dimitri who has 40 years driving experience.) As we are new to the hospitality industry, we welcome feedback on how we can improve what we do to make it a great experience for our guests.
