    Its location right next to the old town of Rethymno, the cleanliness & confort of the room & the kindness of the receptionists.

  • Family with children
    4.6

    Very good service staff on reception, beautiful main hall and little garden

    All rooms and other premises need renovation, furniture is seem like relative new but not convenient. Air conditioner works strange, it is impossible to setup it do not blow directly to the bed. Room service is careless. Parking near the hotel after 3.00-4.00 p.m. is very difficult. There is no gym in the hotel. Definitely not four stars.

  • Couple

    Its location is perfect:near to the beach and the market

    better tv for the room

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The best about the hotel is its location and the very friendly staff.

    The breakfast was poor and the swimming pool could have been larger and more shallow for small children.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Excellent buffet breakfast, big variety, with small outdoor section. Very clean room and seaview as requested on upper floor. Very short walk to beautiful, cultural old town. One desk clerk very helpful, informative, and willing to chat about various matters. Charming lobby, old style. Mini market, bakery steps away. Walk to beach short. Wide and sandy with umbrellas and chairs for a fee. Good buy for money as we got an advertised lower rate. Found street parking, no need to pay for lot.

    On arrival, abrupt desk clerk, not welcoming. Pictures of exterior and room make hotel look more attractive than reality. Street seedy. Balcony overlooked apartments across the street with their balconies featuring everything from baby's beds to storage items, but view of sea over topof buildings was requested and appreciated. Dark interior of hotel, quite uncomfortable beds, non conducive room to romance. Beware in summer, north coast beach with high waves...can't swim but had great fun jumping waves, trying to keep balance.If we visit Rethymnon again, wife would not stay same hotel.

  • Group of friends

    It's close to the beach and to the center of the town.

    For 4 stars should be more facilities in the rooms

    The staff was superlative, especially at the reception mr. Kostas Spiropoulos. The position was very good.

  • Single
    6.2

    Good breakfast, comfortable beds and good internet.

    Interiory a bit old. Smell of mould in the room. Only one small elevator which didn´t work all the time.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Very warm welcome. Very good english speakers. Very clean hotel with small but lovely garden.

    No tea coffee or bottled water in the room. Breakfast was very basic can I suggest pastries and frute (other than apples) would be a good addition.

    The location was good. Close to the beach( 5-10 min walk) . Close to the cafes and tavernas along the beach. Excellent breakfast buffet !! a few items changed from day to day, and a great choice everyday !!!!

    Hardy a four star hotel as depicted on your site. 3 maybe ... It does have a pool with a very grumpy old bartender. A four star hotel will charge things from the bar to your room. Perhaps he was pocketing a few Euros, when people pay with cash ??

  • Couple
    4.6

    The hotel staff were willing to assist with the directions on how to get to the Rethimno city center and also from were to take the bus to Heraklion. Hotel is at a good location, very close to the city center.

    The hotel is not a 4 star hotel even though it is advertised to be a 4 star hotel. 3 stars would be more suitable for this type of hotel. The rooms seem to have been refurbished and this you can see it from the furniture in the room, however the bathroom makes you feel that you are in a very old building. Also breakfast is ok but not considered to be a 4 star hotel breakfast. We found the hotel expensive for the services offered.
