My wife and I stayed here last year and have been remiss in not writing a review. This place is really wonderful and the manager was really terrific in making our stay memorable. I cannot say enough good things about the hotel. The restaurant Avli nearby was the most beautiful restaurant we have ever been to. The shops are relatively... More

After reading previous reviews this proved a perfect choice for our second visit to Crete after a 8 year gap. Angela and her staff are very friendly and helpful if you treat with with the respect they deserve ( unlike some of the visitors who can be very rude to staff) They were always happy to assist and enjoyed a...

Low quality for a high price ! You can find much better in the town with more affordable prices. People are rude and not helpful. The rooms are ok. The breakfast is awful. The building need to be renovated. Not ideally located compare to other hotels with lower prices .

Convenient location for the old harbour and old town. Room was old fashioned but spacious with comfortable beds and efficient air conditioning. Good bathroom with a very powerful over-bath shower. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. Continental breakfast was basic but perfectly nice. There is a spacious (unsurfaced) private shared car park directly opposite, once you have worked out how...

We spent one night at Palazzo Vecchio and should have stayed longer. The staff was very friendly and helpful. One went out of her way to try to help us with car rental issue. IN addition the hotel is very attractive and located very close to the old fortress and the narrow streets of the old city. I highly recommend... More

Lovely hotel and staff. Terrific location & fine rooms with impressive architectural features. Easy to park car in nearby free municipal area (200 metres away) and then everything reachable on foot. Downside is that on ground floor one may be disturbed by early breakfast eaters - we were at 6.30 Sunday morning. Angela who runs the place a model of... More

Have just returned from a lovely week at the Palazzo Vecchio on Crete. A warm welcome on arrival even though we were early and offered breakfast. Staff are wonderful and very obliging and nothing is any trouble for them. The Hotel is very comfortable and is like being at home as you feel so relaxed. We felt during our week... More
