So many advantages related to this hotel: they have their own parking, location is in old city, in walking distance of anything you need to see in Rethymno, just under Fortezza. Down the street (which is one of the main Tethymno streets) there are variaty of places to eat, including Alana, one of the best restaurants. The hotel is very...

We have been to Rethymnon four times but the first time here, the staff were very friendly and helpful, we stayed in a suite which at first seemed a little dark but considering it was in the old part of the house and the walls were very thick and in some cases small windows to keep the inside cool The...

This little charming hotel is located close to the narrow streets of old town, just around the corner, still it is well reachable by car and has a private parking yard. The owner is very attentive to her guests, and everything is kept in good state. The little pool (very little indeed) is nice to cool down, but do not...

We arrived in the middle of night and were made to feel very welcome straight away. The hotel is small, but perfectly situated for the Old Town, which is beautiful and full of interesting shops and restaurants. We had a duplex room with a kitchen, bathroom and small sitting area plus a balcony on the ground floor and bedroom on...

From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, we were completely in love with this place. Everyone there is so warm and welcoming. The rooms are lovely (and we were upgraded which was a very welcome surprise). The pool, terrace and rooftop areas were just perfect for relaxing. And breakfast was great!

The staff was very friendly and helpfull. Location was good with everything within walking distance. There was no private parking area as promised which caused me a parking ticket. But the hotel took the responsibility for that. The room was pretty spacious but outdated. And the bathroom, especially the shower needs renewal. Breakfast was not bad but a little bit...

We have stayed here before, and the fact we have visited three times now says it all. Well placed hotel on the edge of Rethymno Old Town, with views of the Venetian Fortezza.
