We have stayed here before, and the fact we have visited three times now says it all. Well placed hotel on the edge of Rethymno Old Town, with views of the Venetian Fortezza. The hotel is beautiful, it's is run like a well oiled machine by Angela and her team. The staff are what make this hotel such a lovely... More

What would you expect from a hotel of just 20 something rooms? - Location: A 2 minute walk to all restaurants, cafes, bars of the old town, without being in the noisy heart of it. Next to a police station btw. - Clean: 5* Don't expect a preserved old building. It is all brand new. - Room: Large with king... More

A lovely hotel, with great staff that speak excellent English and are on hand 24 hours a day. The room and the entirety of the building is ornately decorated to fit in with the old town, but is still at the same time modern, it is also extremely clean and towels along with bedding is changed daily. A nice distance... More

We stayed here in early June for the second time, we were here in 2013 and had absolutely no hesitation in returning. Angela welcomed us like old friends. We stayed in a Junior suite and again found the accommodation very comfortable and very central to the Old Town. Breakfast had changed a little from 2013 and was very good. The... More

We stayed for five nights at the end of April. Perfect location, ideal for driving to with their own car park which is a bonus I'm sure in high season. We stayed in room 209 which was a maisonette with a lovely quiet terrace overlooking a side street. 2 min walk to supermarket, bakery and restaurants. Breakfast was good, scrambled... More

If you like the experience of accommodation within a two minute walk to all the old town has to offer, and with free parking, this is the place. A very pleasant historic hotel built around a tranquil courtyard, very efficiently run by delightful staff. A real pleasure to come back to after a long walk up in the hills or... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Palazzo Vecchio. The staff were warm and friendly, recommending restaurants around Rethymnon during our stay, which also turned out to be wonderful places (see other reviews). Our room was poorly situated, but we were upgraded to a much nicer one upon request without any fuss at all. Breakfast was nice and having a quiet... More
