My husband and me staid in this hotel from 12th July, for 10 nights. We came first day very early (around 8 am) so we had breakfast as a treat from hotel because we waited for the room. It was a very lovely gesture. Hotel has the best position in town Retimno, right behind old town, with great see veaw... More

Good start and things only got better from there. Great apartment, very clean, good size room. a/c, safe available at cost, full size fridge. Rooms cleaned daily... More

Just returned from this smallish hotel in a great position. Service was great and despite pool being a bit on the small side we had a great time at this hotel . We went bed & breakfast but we saw nothing of the troubles Greece is currently experiencing. We had a sea view room on the second floor. Recommended

Over the winter the IDEON has successfully revamped the pool making even more attractive on a hot Cretan day. The staff are still wonderful and really do remember returning guests. This year we attended a'Cretan night' with excellent food and Greek dancing authentic not normal tourist stuff but we did end up doing a Greek style conga around the restaurant.... More

We have been to many places in Greece over the last ten years and I can honestly say this is the best hotel we have stayed in.Its not big but it is beautifully appointed and is in a great location.Rethymno is a very large town but you get an almost village feel staying at the Ideon as it is situated...

The location could not been batter! Compared to those staying at the road next to the beach where there was one hotel next to another, this was something else. Hotel was located right next to the lovely old town where all the good restaurants (not the ones near the beach) were. A bit far from the beach. Service was great... More

The Ideon Hotel is the friendliest hotel I have stayed in in Greece (I have stayed in quite a few). I have stayed here 5 times over a period of 12 years. It was good to see on our latest visit in June that the staff have hardly changed, but the Hotel has. The hotel continues to modernise and update... More

Stayed here for 10 days, bed and breakfast. Plenty of choice for breakfast. The hotel is spotlessly clean, bedding and towels changed every day. Nice pool area, although not overly large (unfortunately,people do put towels on the sun beds?). The staff are very friendly and efficient. The old town is 3 mins walk around the corner, the beach is further... More
