Fab rooftop pool, very safe unlike some people have said - ridiculous comments, complete rubbish. Criticisms - lack of sunloungers - massively. Room was fine, maid service great, food pretty good. Location absolutely fantastic.

I enjoyed a lot my stay in this hotel that has the structure in the centre of the city , a very friendly , helpful personel and genuine , tasty kitchen . The furniture in the rooms has to be updated but this will not spoil the overall positive impression .

The hotel was nice, mayby not for very needy person, but for me, it was ok. It was a short walk away from beach, but had a cute small pool on the rooftop. Across the hotel was a city park - great place to exercise, run etc. The hotel itself was cozy, but bit aged. Our room was quite big... More

We originally booked a hotel in Plananias, however, after we booked they told us they were closed and relocated us to the Jo-An Palace Hotel. I was a little concerned as I had read some bad reviews but that was not my experience. The reception staff could not have been more helpful. Gave us the choice of two room 414... More

I visited Rethymnon for a lecture in late March 2016. The University had already booked the hotel but judging from the reviews, I expected a nice stay. Indeed, the hotel lived up to the positive reviews. The receptionists were very friendly and gave us (I was travelling with my mother) a room on the second floor. Despite having no view,... More

The hotel is typical city hotel, with very pleasant staff, delicious food and great location. The advantage of the hotel is that it is opened during the all the year around, not only in summer months. Service is excellent and cleanness is on the high level. Things which did not impress us were the size of the room and bathroom... More

This is a Hotel which is in dire need of repairs, rehab and a thorough cleaning! There were exposed wires, badly designed lighting, flooring which was lifting, not enough hot water........the list goes on! However, add to that the fact that it was filthy! There is no excuse for that! Mirrors not clean, hallways dimly lit and not mopped properly.... More

The staff was very polite and the room was nice. Normal price and very good breakfast.The hotel is next to the old town and for me this was a great advantage because everything is near the hotel. giannis+despina
