We stayed two nights at this hotel, late September/early October 2022. We received a warm and friendly greeting from Mr. Stelios, who showed us to our room on the 6th floor. He told us about the town and gave us restaurant recommendations. Our room was very clean, nicely furnished, and renovated up to modern standards. The best part was the spacious balcony with the incredible view of Rethymno and the seaside. We enjoyed swimming at the beach across from the hotel and also at the hotel pool. The bartender at the pool mixes great drinks. Be aware that there are lots of stairs at this hotel, and several different elevators to reach rooms on the top floors. We didn’t mind, but this could be a problem for people with mobility issues. The hotel is built on a hillside. The views are wonderful!! It is a short walk to the old town of Rethymno. We recommend the Archipelagos Hotel very much and we really enjoyed our stay!

Really friendly hotel staff, we were met every day with a warm greeting. Breakfast was great and varied every day. The rooms all have balconies with a full sea view and had all recently been modernised; very clean and comfortable with all the appliances you would need (fridge, kettle etc) to prepare basic meals. The location for us was brilliant, as it was close to a secluded and sheltered beach (which would be ideal for young children) and near to a few lesser known restaurants and bars to the west of the main city. We enjoyed the 10 minute walk into town every night, stopping on the way for a beer at the bar (next to the community swimming pool) overlooking the sea. What really stood out about the hotel though was that when accidentally I left my driving licence and credit card in the room, the owner took the trouble to contact me and couriered them back to the UK and wouldn't hear of me paying for that. That was a really excellent level of service - Thank you Stelios!

Room was on the 9th floor and we had to take 3 elevators to get there. I think we overpaid as I overheard someone walking in off the street and their rate was much lower tha ours. The owner let us have breakfast eventhough it was not included which it should have been for the price we paid. Breakfast is European style, but coffee was good. Mr Stelios is extremely nice and very helpful. The pools are lovely and there is a nice beach across the street and an organized beach 5 km away. It is an easy walk to old town. Hotel has been refurbished nicely and is very clean. Eventhough we overpaid, it was a good experience.

Lovely hotel in a great location and with a lovely little beach in front of it, with a beautiful view of the sea and old town. The rooms were cleaned on a daily basis, all staff were very friendly and helpful, always at the guests' service. One of the most beautiful vacations ever.

We made a reservation for the superior studio with private pool through booking.com. The room is on the 6th floor and you have to use 3 elevators to reach it because the hotel is build on a hill. The room was very good, not very big but okay, with a good bathroom, airconditioning, nice balcony and a small pool. The beds are very good also. The view is outstanding, looking at the sea and old town of Rethymno. The staff led by Mr "Basil" Stellios is also very good! They do everything to make your stay a great one. They are really very nice and genuine warm people! The location is good. A 20 minutes walk to the centre and always parking space in front of the hotel. Poolbar and swimming pool are nice with umbrellas and sunbeds and Andreas serving drinks and cooking something nice for you at the bar. The prices are okay also. We really would like to recomend this hotel and we would like to come back again!!

Really enjoyed staying here for two weeks: good facilities, very clean, lovely mix of nationalities. The staff were warm and so helpful. It was a good base for doing day trips and it was on the quieter, less touristy side of Old Town. Enjoyed good snorkelling from the small beach opposite and walked down to the local seafront restaurants several evenings. Also an easy walk into Old Town. Facilities like room safe (free), late checkout (very reasonable) and beach towels all made for an easeful holiday! Very grateful to the team who helped make it all happen!

The Archipelagos is a beautiful hotel situated on the ocean within walking distance of the Old Town. The staff is helpful and friendly, the rooms are spacious and clean and the breakfast is generous and healthy. Best of all though is that this is a family run hotel and the kindness shown to us during our stay was unparalleled. My daughter developed an ear infection and Stelios, the owner and general manager not only scheduled an appointment with a local ENT specialist but also drove us to the appointment, waited for us, brought us to the pharmacy and drove us back to the hotel. He also made sure to extend our check out time so that we would not be stressed. I was very moved by the humbleness and kindness shown by Stelios, his family and entire staff. I wholeheartedly recommend The Archipelagos Hotel and look forward to coming again!
