We got here in the middle of the day - it was one of the hottest days in september 2014. We got to Rethymnon by bus from Chania and had to go a really great path with our bags, and this, I think is the worst experience about this hotel. As we arrived, lady before the counter met us with... More

I was disappointed when I first saw the hotel in daylight, whilst it is in an excellent position for exploring the Old Town, it is just at the edge, it's opposite a car park and the police station is next door. However, we arrived late and had a really warm welcome from the night porter, a couple of Rakis went... More

Palazzo Vecchio is well positioned in the old town. Our room was large with en suite and a kitchenette; the fridge was useful. Bed Linen and towels were clean and fresh and changed regularly. The room, whilst not unpleasantly furnished, looked like it could do with a refresh and the cleaning regime was not as fastidious as some would like.... More

I spent two nights at Palazzo Vecchio and it was a great choice. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the rooms were very comfortable. The rooms are all inside the courtyard which makes all of them very quiet. Breakfast was nothing too special, but got the job done. Ask the hotel staff for restaurant recommendations. The food we had was... More

We have just returned from staying at this hotel for 2 nights while exploring the area. The comments on TA and photos match the description perfectly, this is a very quaint boutique hotel which has an excellent position in the heart of the old town of Rethymnon underneath the old fortress. On arrival we were greeted by Angela and shown... More

Location. Free parkingplace across the street. Near the Old Town. Small and quiet hotel. Comfy bed. Cleaning every day. And very friendly staff. And even fresh orange juice. Surroundings are picturesque.

I believe someone referred to this hotel as a 'boutique hotel' which is exactly what it is. Difficult to fault anything here, if you are looking for a small, city style hotel. Pleasant staff, nice rooms, lovely courtyard with interesting pool. It is definitely not a place to go and lie in the sun and be pampered.

we have just stayed here for one night in the middle of a week in Crete and we had the most wonderful experience. We were greeted by Irena who gave us a warm welcome and was most polite and very helpful when it came to advising us of tavernas and places of interest. Our junior suites were spacious, pristine clean... More

Stayed here as a couple for 12 nights, and had the most relaxing time. Initially had a few reservations that we had made the correct choice; the actual bedroom on the ground floor was quite small, but we had a junior suite (room 108) so overall, there was enough space. Exceptionally comfortable beds, and all very clean. Lovely clean towels... More

Just came back from 11 nights at this charming boutique hotel. Beautiful small courtyard with a dip pool. Room was a very good size with a small kitchen area along with a really comfortable bed. The hotel is on the edge of the old town and has some good local bars and restaurants nearby. Cannot praise the staff enough they... More
