We stayed April 2017 in this restored Venetian Palazzo just behind the historic harbour - comfortable, well serviced, with helpful staff, home prepared buffet breakfast and fantastic views over the lighthouse and Turkish mosque. Convenient to all pedestrianized centre of fantastic old town: all facilities very near, spoilt for choice. No lift so be prepared for stairs, Parking hire car necessarily outside pedestrianized zone- so not so good for the less mobile. But we managed at the free car park western end of harbour, a pleasant stroll.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our Hotel, an imposing, tall, 600 year old building, has gathered a rich history over the passing of the centuries. During the days of Turkish Rule, the building housed members of high ranking Turkish military who made many changes to the buildings architecture - even built a Hamam.In the garden and next to that, a room to secure their slaves (where you can still see the metallic rings nailed to the walls). In the beginning of the 19th Century, the building was used as a French embassy and later was inhabited by the great Greek political figure, Eleftherios Venizelos, who also used it as his political offices until his move to Athens, when he took power as Prime Minister of Greece. The Hotel has 10 beautiful rooms - the 2 of which are maisonettes - fully restored and traditionally decorated to provide our guests with an especially warm and welcome feeling. All rooms have modern conveniences (WC, telephone, TV, mini-bar, air-conditioning and Central Heating in winter) ensuring our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. ... more less
