In Rethymnon you can have a hotel in the pretty old town and harbour or by the wonderful sandy beach. you cannot have both as the beach is some distance from the harbour. Choosing the beach, Hotel Poseidon fits the bill perfectly and is excellent value. Having made that choice it is unreasonable to complain about the walk to the... More

I stayed here in April 2014 with a group. Our rooms were clean and more than adequate; the wifi was good, and above all the staff were friendly and helpful. It's about half an hour's stroll from the old town, and there is a dedicated beach area right opposite where sunbeds can be rented for 2 Euros. Every room has... More

The air-con didn't work 2. I don't mind chatty owners but it became increasingly annoying when he started intruding on our personal conversations to add his two... More

The staff were very friendly and polite. The room was a good size and had a great view of the sea and beach. The hotel was very good value for money €35 per room per night including continental breakfast of fresh orange juice, coffee, boiled egg, 2 different types of rolls, ham, cheese, jam etc. A small supermarket next door...

Very clean. Good value Criticism - had to walk up one flight to the room; no internet service, but offered use of owner's son's laptop when he... More

We stayed here only one night (because of ferry reshuffling), after staying in Chania for 2 nights and really wished we'd stayed at Hotel Poseidon the whole time and taken a bus into Chania. Villa Venezia in Chania was 23 euros more per night than Posiedon and not nearly as nice. The hotel was a great deal and directly across... More

So far on the trip we have been on this has been the best hotel. The rooms are great, good sized, nice comfortable beds,airconditioning, great views of the beach and it is... More
