This is not a big budget hotel, the rates are very reasonable. With that in mind I did not expect the thoughtful, kind and fanstastically helpful service we got. We had a lovely room, own roof terrace, quiet at night despite being in a very central, buzzy area. The sea is right over the road with entrance to the nicest... More

Location is the first plus of this guest house (old town-seafront). The rooms are small but clean and with all the amenities that one needs: television, fridge, wi-fi, dryer etc...Perfect if you don't intend to spend a lot of time in your room. And they are inexpensive: less than 50 euros a nite in full-tourist season. Last but not least,... More

The guesthouse is in the charming old town and our room had a beautiful sea view. The air-conditioning and fast wifi were included in the price of the room and we had a television, fridge, kettle and cups. Little touches, like having a washing line with pegs on the balcony, made us feel at home. Our room was clean and... More

The Sea Front Apartments is a clean and friendly place which offers good value for money which is located right by the beach which gives the terrace restaurant a beautiful ambience especially on mornings and evenings. It is situated about 7km outside of the main town of Rethymnon which is not really an issue as there is a bus service... More

Dirty dirty dirty. And noisy. Bring your own sheets. Dark bathroom with things from previous guests. Room with no window. We left it after the first night, we paid it cash and back home we discovered they charge us other 15 euro on credit card. The only good thing is position, but definitely it doesn't worth it.

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
