The hotel is typical city hotel, with very pleasant staff, delicious food and great location. The advantage of the hotel is that it is opened during the all the year around, not only in summer months. Service is excellent and cleanness is on the high level. Things which did not impress us were the size of the room and bathroom... More

This is a Hotel which is in dire need of repairs, rehab and a thorough cleaning! There were exposed wires, badly designed lighting, flooring which was lifting, not enough hot water........the list goes on! However, add to that the fact that it was filthy! There is no excuse for that! Mirrors not clean, hallways dimly lit and not mopped properly.... More

The staff was very polite and the room was nice. Normal price and very good breakfast.The hotel is next to the old town and for me this was a great advantage because everything is near the hotel. giannis+despina

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
