Positives - seemingly attentive and pleasant staff, located dab smack middle of old town withing a few minutes walk to anywhere, curiously retro-kitsch decor, sufficiently powerful HVAC system (even for winter), room service option, beautiful grounds; Negatives - leaky shower stall, double/queen size bed turned put to be two singles pushed together, but with different heights - resulting in a...

I am a regular visitor of this outstanding historical hotel. Though, I had not been staying there in wintertime up to now. Guess what? I had the best time ever. Not so busy, yet cosy and friendly staff. The time pass by slowly and creative, much raki time, productive philosophical conversations with Yannis. A number of wonderful mezedes at the... More

What good luck to discover this hotel! It is a lovely hotel in every way; friendly staff, good food, very nice suites, good athrooms, spotlessly clean and our suite even had it's own patio which was a real bonus . Excellent breakfasts. At night the hotel is all lit up with candles everywhere and so lovely.

We struggled throughout our stay in crete with the quality of accom. In short I feel historic was not the way to go for us..maybe we are blase - coz we live in a town that has stonework dating from 1500's also -so we don't go all wooly @ the knees when we encounter history.

We spent 2 days in this authentic and beatiful hotel. The room was beautiful and the service was excellent. The restaurant was also great. The sommelier was excellent and recommended excellent wines to pair with the meal. Their garden is cozy and beautiful. You need to try their speciality: the lamb cooked in grape leaves and their special wine dessert... More

We stayed at Veneto Suites for 2 nights at the end of August, the building is gorgeous (700 years old) and we were really impressed by our room which was the one in the yard (where the breakfast is served). The downside for us was that the breakfast was really bad. All the products didn't taste fresh at all and... More

Can't fault our experience at this hotel. You couldn't ask for a better location, right in the heart of the old town. The staff were very friendly, efficient and helpful. Even helping us to find accommodation at the last minute for our friends who hadn't booked. I reckon they rang at least 10 hotels. Usually the rooms in old buildings... More
