“WOULD RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

An excellent hotel in a good location, a short 20 minutes bus (E1.20) or taxi ride (E10/12) from the centre of Rethymnon Old Town and the Central Bus Station.

Very clean and bright with beautifully tended gardens.

There was a very good food choice at meal-times (4 course meal) to suit all tastes, with a very good Vegetarian selection (Lovely Gigantes -- my compliments to the Chef ! )

All the staff were very polite, helpful and efficient, especially the 2 Costas cousins who worked on Reception - they provided invaluable help when I had problems with lack of service from Olympic Holidays (again, many thanks to both Costas').

The cleaners worked very hard and came in every day

Would have really preferred a higher room but as I sometimes have walking difficulties the ground floor one provided was really more suitable, although there was a lack of privacy on the balcony with people walking past.

Overall a really pleasant and comfortable stay. Great value & Great servicer.- THANKYOU

MrsIngs

PS You will probably meet a very friendly, very pregnant cat - PLEASE feed ........

Room Tip: A room on a higher floor would give more privacy and more sun

We really enjoyed our stay here and would stay again. The room was clean and suited our needs as we were out most of the time. The pool is excellent as is the surrounding area. The staff are polite and helpful.The breakfast could be a little more inspiring but overall a great holiday.

Room Tip: A top floor room will give good views.

I stayed here in August 2013 with my 2 teenage children. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds with lots of flowers. The room was adequate as we only used it as a base. It was perhaps a little dated, but clean with comfortable beds. The maid came in everyday and changed the towels and bed linen. We only had breakfast and to be honest, it was a standard continental style, with bread, cheese, ham, yogurt etc. We had lunch at the hotel everyday and it was lovely and reasonably priced. The resort itself was quite touristy as you would expect but there are some great restaurants to choose from. The White Lady restaurant sold great food with entertainment most nights.
I would recommend a trip to the nearby town of Rethymnon. The harbour is picturesque and there are some super places to eat and drink. The bus only cost €1.50 and leaves from opposite the hotel. Make sure you buy the tickets from the supermarket as you cannot pay on the bus.

The hotel is quite busy in the evening. It is nice to relax with a cocktail after a busy day lazing by the pool.
All in all, I'd recommend this hotel.

Modern hotel on the main road, with rooms that are quite a good size with air-con available at 5E per night. Rooms are spotlessly clean and the grounds well-kept.

The swimming pool is a reasonable size with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas available.

Breakfasts are the usual Greek fare but orange squash not fresh orange juice available. We didn't have meals at the hotel as we prefer to try different restaurants and there's plenty of choice nearby. We recommend Mr Gyros which is just across the road.

The beach is less than 5mins walk but as we hired a car we didn't use it although did walk down to have a look - very nice - plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for hire.

Overall, a nice clean hotel in a central location which is good value for money. We would certainly recommend it.

Extremely good value for the €40 a night we paid. Daily room cleaning, lovely pool. Great dinners (as a vegan I was pleased there were many salad options and the odd warm dish to cater to a vegan diet). The WiFi wasn't working in our rooms when we were there but it was fine, as we used it in the lobby and meant we weren't hidden away in our rooms! Close to beach (over road and about 100m away), although wasn't a big fan of the beach. Only 45mins from nice beaches on south coast too. Breakfast wasn't a great one though, especially if vegan, so that was a disappointment after two amazing dinners so far. Friendly staff, chilled atmosphere and not too busy. Very high quality for the price for sure! Stay here.

Stopped there in the middle of June. I was impressed. As I travelled on my own I needed quite place near the sea. And I get it! The hotel is really about 100 m from the beach. It isn't first line indeed but the place where hotel stands is favorable. Bus stop is couple of metres, lots of restourants and cafe are not far from too. So I like it.
The hotel itself is rather compact but it's very tidy. Room service works on very good level, the linen is white like a snow. But you could find some dust on the chairs. There are air-conditioner and safe in the room. Air-conditioner is must-have as there were incredible heat and it helped. My room was on second floor and that's good. I don't like first floor rooms as they view on the path and I'm not comfortable in such condition. There is not much space in the garden and 'garden view' is 'other room's window view' but it wasn't problem for me as there are nice curtans in all rooms.
The meal was good quality, every dish was just cooked and fresh. The chef cooked amazing fish!
Stuff is highly professional and that surprized me as it was unexpected to meet such professional attitude at 3-star hotel. So if you are looking for quite place and want to save some mone your choice should be Palladion Hotel.

Room Tip: Choose second floor. Garden view rooms are not so sunny.

Staying at the Palladion as I write this. A lovely well run hotel right in the middle of everything a holiday maker needs, shops, bars, restaurants, beach etc. The room we are in is a good size, with fridge. Extremely comfy beds. the shower is on the small side but there is plenty of power and the water is always hot.The breakfast is typical of any European hotel of its kind... plenty of it and replenished frequently.. no complaints... I would totally recommend this hotel :)

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room.. we found it cooler and out of the sun so it meant we didnt need to pa...
