We stayed at the Ideon for 3 nights (£50pn twin room, with breakfast, booked through Travel Republic). It is a good quality 3 star hotel, clean, comfortable & friendly, in a great location in the Old Town right next to the harbour and the Fortress. There is a swimming pool area at the rear, albeit rather overcrowded with sunloungers. At... More

Myself and my boyfriend recently stayed at the Ideon Hotel and had such an amazing time. We were bed and breakfast, my partner took full advantage of the buffet style breakfast but we found the main manager of breakfast Sophia very very impolite and she was only interested in talking to large families. Bar staff and waiters were great, very... More

I have stayed at the Ideon 13 years in a row and it is like going home. All the staff are wonderful and very friendly and the service is outstanding - nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms of a good size. I would recommend a room overlooking the pool on a hig floor... More

I guess it is unnecessary to tell how great the hotel is. The amount of repeaters is telling that story. For this year the restaurant was renovated. Now there is even more seats outside to enjoy your breakfast or lunch under the blue sky. Very nicely decorated. As well the area were breakfast buffet is served is changed and I... More

Hotel is on edge of the old town, close to lots of lovely restaurants and bars. 15minute walk from beach.This is our 4th year in a row to visit this hotel and we normally never go to the same place twice! Would highly recommend... More

This is the second time that we have been back to this hotel and from talking to other guests, this is one of those hotels where people come back year after year. The service is marvellous and the rooms are kept clean on a daily basis. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and the breakfast on offer will... More

We first visited Crete some 6 years ago and also stayed in Rethymnon. This time we decided to go half board...best decision we made. The above hotel is smallish and right on the front and ideally positioned for bars, restaurants and shops. Room was modern and clean and the pool right outside our door. What makes the Ideon special are... More
