For the budget, it's a 5-star rating, but since it's probably a 3-star hotel, I'll give it 4. It was perfect for the price: wonderful location and excellent staff. Clean, quaint room with wifi and air conditioning. We would certainly stay again.

I have been travelling now for over 12 years and there are some places that just stick in the memory for being outstanding. This is undoubtedly one of those places.It is in a fantastic location set in the evocative old town. The room was large, spotlessly clean and had a gorgeous balcony. It was great value for money. Although those... More

We stayed two nights here and loved it. The owners (2 lovely brothers) are extremely helpful and friendly; the room was spotless and spacious and had a small balcony; the location is ideal for exploring the old town, the harbour and other sites. They also arranged car hire for us for the next stage of our trip. Would love to... More

During our visit to Crete in September 2013, we decided to stay in Rethymno for 3 nights and went with this hostel as we were students on a tight budget and the reviews were good. Best decision we made! The hosts, 2 brothers it seemed like, were very friendly and gave great recommendations on where to eat, what to see,... More

It is right in the center of Rethymnon, very close the the bus station, beach, castle and everything important in Rethymnon. The hosts were very friendly, giving us good advice on what to visit in Crete and realistic expectations on how much time it will take us. The room was big enough with a view towards the street with fridge... More

ideal location, we had a room overlooking Arkadiou street, much quieter than the sea front, owners were always very helpful, in fact they came out to meet us the evening we arrived. always willing to give directions and advice were to visit. be very careful when eating at the restaurants near the harbour, overpriced compared to other restaurants.

First off, the owners of this place are just lovely. Brothers Stavros, Stelios and Manos who also run the travel/tour shop underneath/across the road. They really can't do enough for you and are genuinely really nice people. Handy for tips of things to do and places to eat as well. And they arranged transfers to/from the hotel. Perfectly placed in... More

The sea-front is exactly like the pictures. I stayed there 12 nights. It is not a hotel since it is rent rooms and I think this gives it a nice and special home feeling. It is super clean and bright, the spacious rooms are serviced every day and the two brothers who take care of the guests are lovely people.... More
