We stayed at the Byzantine Hotel for 4 nights. Its an old Venetian mansion in the old city of Rethymnon. The rooms were quite big, very very clean and the bathroom was very spacious. From our rooms window we had a really beautiful view, as you could see an old minaret.
The gem of the hotel was Mr. Nikos of course! We went to the breakfast room and we were confused as we didn't see any breakfast! Suddenly, Mr Nikos comes in with a huge tray with fresh orange juice, hot homemade bread and cheese pies and coffee. The next day, he gave us strawberry jam, which he had made the previous afternoon by himself! He was such a wonderful host, we gave us the best advice and directions and he was always so helpful and willing to serve us! On the last day, he put light jazz music during breakfast, such a wonderful taste and ambience!
I would definetely go back to Byzantine! I highly recommend it, its an authentic example of the cretan hospitality!
