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

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

My wife and myself can not say enough positive things about this wonderful boutique hotel in Rethymnon Crete. The staff work hard to ensure your stay is as relaxed as you would like. The accommodation has character and charm, with the facilities to match. A wonderful plunge pool, is a welcomed escape from the very high temperatures (39 degrees C).... More

Room was small, however still comfortable with plenty of character. There is parking adjacent in a block opposite hotel. Hotel in good location to walk up old town about a 10 minute walk. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Had a lovely stay - Very picturesque courtyard/pool area. Pool a little small but expected it before arrival. The owners were extremely friendly and informative. About 10 minute walk from the bars and restaurants on the beach front. Would recommend.

We booked this residence as the start of my 50th birthday celebrations and we were not disappointed. In fact, I have to say we were blown away by the whole experience! We stayed in room 210, which was fabulous. Set at the back of the residence, this was a very spacious dual-level apartment, with a big balcony overlooking a quiet,... More

This is a brilliant place to stay in Rethymno. We were welcomed with Raki and Loukoumi by Irini who then took us to our beautifully furnished junior suite. We had a small balcony and a view of the Fortezza, there was a kitchen area with hob, kettle coffee maker. The hotel is very peaceful and the sun terraces and pool... More
