“For a small island hotel, not bad”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

It's important to keep ones expectations in check when booking island hotels under 150 / night.

Location, room size, cleanliness and service all very good value.

I will stay there again when in Zakinthos

Everything was perfect....the rooms, the reception area, the staff, the view to the sea, the wifi, the dining area, the food. Everything was clean. There is a public beach right behind the hotel. The water was very clean and the beach very organised with sunbeds and snak bar. We booked a trip to the Shipwreck and we also rent a car through the reception. Thanks everybody for a lovely time in Zakynthos. We will be back at Palatino for sure!!!!

Is the second time when my wife and I visited Zakynthos and Palatino Hotel. Every time we get impressed by the colors and beauty of landscape from the hotel balcony. Palatino Hotel you be remembered as a very plesant experience. Room decor is Mediterranean style and modern designed bar and restaurant. Staff is very friendly and very helpful in terms of tourist information in Zakynthos. The services offered are of good quality and make you come back every year to the same hotel. Many thanks Palatino Hotel staff , especially Ms. Manager for their contribution to our dream vacation. We choose every time for our holiday in Zakynthos the same hotel - Palatino .

My girlfriend and I visited Zakynthos after staying for a couple of days visiting Athens. We arrived at the Palatino at noon, and instantly fell in love with the superb location and hospitality of this wonderful hotel.
Unlike other hotels we have stayed at around the world, Palatino has a very homely welcoming atmosphere which helps you instantly feel relaxed and was encouraged by the owner to treat it like it was our home.The staff were exceptionally warm and friendly.
They made you feel like you were staying with old friends. They arranged day trips for us and wanted to hear all the details when we returned at night. The hotel is impeccably clean, safe and quiet. The dining areas are delightful and the restaurant is both tasty and great value. We are big food lovers and love exploring different restaurants abroad to eat out, however, we stayed in the hotel every other night to eat as the home cooked food was superb and expectionally made. The breakfast was nice and freshly prepared daily and there was a variety of cheese / ham / breads / yogurt / honey / eggs / sausages / fresh fruits & pastries.
The public beach is right 50 meters close to the hotel is ideal to spend relaxing afternoons, maybe after spending the first part of the day exploring the island. The sea water is clear, and you can enjoy nice sunsets. Our room, a sea view room, was very nice with a useful air-conditioner. Btw, the small extra-price per day of a sea-view room is more than worth paying
To conclude...we loved this place, we had a wonderful time there, we would like to be always there!

From the moment that you arrive until you leave you feel the Greek hospitality. Everyone is at your service and genuine. Palatino hotel was by far the most memorable and amazing lodging experience I've had to date. The room decor was outstanding, the location was great, the dining and amenities were top notch...but above all and the cornerstone of our review is the service. The service was impeccable.The staff was really helpful and friendly. We got to know them and they made us feel part of the family! Many thanks to them for their contribution to our unforgettable experience. Would stay at this hotel every time we return to Zakynthos

This Hotel is not what it says . My boyfriend and I wanted to stay at a nice hotel for our last stop so we looked on here and all the reviews were great . So we booked .We get there check in and our room was dirty the sheets to be specific we called to complain but the only other room they had were not great either and we wanted our ocean view. We then enjoyed the town which is wonderful. We had a skpe date around 12 but then the hotels internet didn't work. we called the front desk to see if they could fix the problem but instead they proceeded to tell me it was our computer that was messing up and he would put a work order on it for the morning. the next night same thing but then he said I'll go up there and show you it works . It didn't ! So the next day they put us in a new room where the internet was working. The front desk was not helpful at all . All in all this place is not 4 stars its not very nice to stay out if your looking for relaxation you will not get it at this place !! Oh and we got bit by ants while we were sleeping . so if you want a dirty place to stay stay here if not look else where .

Hotel Palatino is located in Zakynthos City Centre. You don't get excited by its outside looks but you will be delighted once you enter the front door. The rooms are cleaned every day something that you don't normally get if you don't pay a lot.

I would recommend this hotel for couples, solo, friends or business who don't need extreme hotel facilities as they're outside most of the day.

Highlights:
- Great breakfast with local dishes
- Since it's in the city center you never find a parking spot easily, especially during August. Hopefully there was someone from the hotel stuff keeping parking spots for hotel guests.
- I wouldn't go for the rooms in the back side of the hotel as the balcony is very small and you can spot (even touch) the people leaving in the opposite house. We booked it last minute from booking.com offers so we couldn't have the choice of choosing our room.
- Wi-Fi is free and speed is very good. The problem is that you'll have a problem using via your smartphone or tablet (you'll be disconnected all the time)

I would definitely come back.
