We had a pleasant nights stay here. The location is great, close to the old harbour and Rimoni Fountain area which has all the best restaurants in town.

The decoration is a little outdated, but don’t let it discourage you. The staff is really nice and the hotel couldn’t be better located. The view from the roof is amazing. There are a lot of good restaurants and a parking lot nearby.

Definitely the best place in Rethymno. I come here every year to enjoy the friendly environment of the hotel and it's unique panoramic view from the roof. There is everything you need for the comfort stay in the hotel including fully-equipped kitchen with beautiful sea view terrace to have a breakfast or wine in the evening. Highly recommended! Maria.

We stayed here for 4 nights. To sit on the roof late in the evening and look over town was nice. The hotel has a perfect location. Good Wifi. Friendly people who work at the hotel. It was also a quit hotel. But very hard beds.
