Delightful small hotel with nice rooms in the old town. Clean simple rooms with kitchenette for coffee/tea+, dedicated parking and very helpful staff. Location is very nice with a nice short walk to shops and restaurants, A great base for exploring Rethymnon and the surrounding areas. Lovely rooftop terrace for sunset.

We stayed 5 nights in this very well situated hotel from 6/10/13 to 10/10/13 inclusive. All guests (and cats) were fed at breakfast time.Our host and hostess were very hospitable and understanding-particularly the morning I managed to nearly flood the apartment.Don't ask! Our host is a philosopher and I should probably have taken more advantage in that regard.Kitchenette a very... More

The location of this hotel was perfect; very near to the fortress, a five minute walk to a huge choice of restaurants, and abut 20 minutes to the sea. Thanassis, the hotel's main host, was charming and very helpful, as was Angela, and all of the hotel staff were very friendly. Breakfast was included but could have been improved by... More

Just returned from a wonderful 10 days at Palazzo Vecchio. I can't recommend it highly enough. The hosts, Thanassis and Angela were perfect. They made you feel welcome without being intrusive. They offered recommendations for restaurants or trips and were happy to contact companies and book on our behalf. The accommodation was very tasteful, comfortable and extremely clean and tidy....

Stayed for a week Oct/Nov, the hotel was ideally located not just in Rethymnon Old Town, but in Crete as a base to explore the whole island. We were welcomed by the owners and their friendly hospitality continued throughout the week. The hotel is immaculate with large, clean apartments. We'd struggle to find better accommodation elsewhere in the area. Fully... More

I really don't think I can add much to earlier reviews. This is a great location, good food, very clean and with friendly and helpful multi lingual staff. We stayed for a week in October and had a brilliant time. We hadn't realised that our room had cooking facilities and a large fridge which we used to store bottled water... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our week here. The location would take some beating, 1 minute from the sea, overlooking the fortress and a short stroll to the large selection of restaurants in the old town. The hotel itself was excellent with a fridge for cold water and milk plus a kettle for a cup of tea(!) we were very comfy. The roof... More

Palazzo Vecchio is in a great location close to all facilities in Rethynmon center and just a short walk into the Old Town where one is totally spoiled for choice of restaurants and shops. Angela greeted us on arrival and immediately made us feel most welcome. Our apartment was very comfortable, well appointed, very clean and serviced daily. Breakfast was... More

Perfect location, welcoming and helpful hosts, very friendly staff, great breakfast and excellently appointed spotless accommodation. This was our experience of Palazzo Vecchio on our recent first trip to Crete and Greece. We just loved the personal touches, the welcome, the invaluable restaurant recommendations, advice on trips and local information, the relaxed atmosphere and the almost home away from home... More
