This hotel is located in an old venetian house. The rooms are nicely decorated, the bathroom are functional - though a bit smelly. No elevator, and steep stairs. There is a certain charm to it, and I would say it is an excellent value for the money (62 euros a night in May). The owners are very nice, and helpful.... More

Lovely hotel right in middle of old town. Easy to get anywhere. Amazing room with archways. Very friendly staff. Recommended us to have dinner at the Avli restaurant which is possibly the best food we have had in Crete.

We really appreciated our travel agent for finding this gem for us. It was a fully modern hotel in a 1400's body. Situated in Old Town, Rethymnon, away from the big city of Heraklion, it was down a quiet alley but close to the market, restaurants and the port. Breakfast, served 'en plein air,' was delicious and relaxing. The staff... More

Our room at Hotel Leo couldn't have been nicer, from the elegant bathrooms to the awesomely cozy beds to the tasty breakfasts, we were in heaven. The ladies at the desk were gracious and accommodating, they were truly exceptional. There are not enough superlatives for me to give this hotel. You will not regret staying here! One more thing, the... More

We stayed at Hotel Leo for a week in August with my sister in law and her husband who were visiting us from New Zealand. It was their first time to Greece and the hotel ticked every box. Great location in the centre of a fabulous little town, lovely large rooms, beautifully furnished. Super friendly and helpful owners made it... More

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights 12-16 Oct 14. The minute I got there, I felt like I was part of the Leo family. Perfect location in the heart of old Rethymnon. Maria and Eleni, my hosts, could not of been more helpful and caring! The hotel is an old building from the 1400s turned into an 8... More

We stayed in Hotel Leo for our first holiday together and have to say we have set the bar quite high! It's a really lovely hotel oozing with character in a brilliant central location surrounded by bustling shops and tavernas. We were both very impressed with the room (202), especially when we first walked in. I would highly recommend this... More

We stayed in this hotel for 12 days and found it the perfect base from which to explore Crete. From the moment we arrived our hotelier "Eleni" could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The hotel is a beautifully converted Venetian villa, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. It is a great example of how a passionate person... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Leo for three nights very recently and had a great stay. The building itself is very beautiful - each room is unique and well decorated. We were on the second floor, in a room with a double balcony. We were facing the street, but had no concerns regarding noise. The A/C worked very... More
