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 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...

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

This hotel has some good things going for it. We had a large room with a lovely view of the beach and sea just across the street. It is easy to walk from the hotel anywhere you might want to go in Rethymnon. However, we unfortunately did not experience the warm family atmosphere described in some other reviews and which...
