I really feel the duty to say something on this hotel since I don't want other people to do the same mistake I did. If you don't want to read the whole comment here is the summary: DON'T GO THERE! If you are curious here I list the reasons: - Cleaning: The whole room smelled like mildew, I really felt... More

1 star for very kids staff at the reception and good wifi. Everything else was bad. Everything in the room felt dirty. Bathroom had horrible smell. The AC was loud and was pouring air full of cigarette smoke . Mattress horrible. Dead flowers all over hotel and dirty windows. Could not wait to leave. Wanted to move to another property... More

I' ve spent 1 week in Jo An Palace Hotel, in the middle of May 2015. It was a perfect stay. The hotel has very nice and professional stuff, spacious and clean rooms, very varied and tasty food and a terrace with swimming pool above the hotel, where you can enjoy the best old city view. Also, the hotel is... More

We spent 2 weeks at the end of September in the Jo-An palace in the heart of Rethymnon. Excellent location, the old town and beach are within easy walking distance and the many other attractions of Crete are easily reached by nearby bus station. We received a fantastic welcome and an excellent standard of service throughout our stay. The food... More

We stayed here for ten days at the end of august. The reception and dining staff were excellent. However it's not a 4 star hotel, more like a 3 star. Ask for a room facing the street.Hotel is close to the old town. And Rethymnon is a lively and interesting city. The food was average and sometimes poor. Next time... More

We have just returned from a week at Jo An Palace. It is conveniently located and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. We had a spacious room with a balcony which caught the sun in the afternoon. But that is where the compliments stop. The food though varied was of a very poor standard. The washbasin in our ensuite... More

Stayed here at the beginning of May. If you choose to stay here, please go with the idea that it is a budget hotel and you wont be disappointed. It is definately 3 star not 4. The rooms are very basic-we only use them as somewhere to wash and sleep (we spend a lot of time out and about) so... More

This hotel might have been a 4 star during the 70s. Today is just an aged hotel with poor rooms and only one plug in the whole room!!! The breakfast was quite poor too. In general I wouldn't recommend it to no one... The girl in the reception during the mornings was very helpful and kind. The rest of the... More
