Breakfast is prepared for all tastes and can be enjoyed outside. There is even a small pool. The entire staff make it their business to make your...

We had a lovely two room suite on the first floor of this excellent hotel - spacious and well equipped with a kitchenette. Access to the rooms is from an inner courtyard with tables and a plunge pool. Nice breakfast. Free wifi but the signal wasn't always great. Service very good and friendly. Plenty of easy parking which in an...

This small but beautifully formed Hotel is a gem, fantastic location for walks around the old town and a delight to come back to during the heat of the afternoon. It has 2 roof terraces so plenty of space but most days I had it to myself in the shade of the large umbrellas. Our room had its own balcony...

Decided on a night here based on recommendation. The hotel is on the edge of the old town, just a few minutes level walk to the centre. The location is ideal, especially if you arrive by car because it is one of the few in the old town area that you can drive to - and it has it's own...

Very nice hotel, best breakfast we had so far in Crete, comfortable beds and big room. The owner showed us around in the hotel and gave very good tips for dinner restaurants. Would definitely stay there again in the future!

We stayed at Palazzo Vecchio three years ago -- and we loved the stay. This year, the visit proved that our memories were solid. The hotel is well maintained by a staff that treat you like royalty. The hotel is within a comfortable walk of many of Rethimno's places of interest, great restaurants, and swimming. Truly, an excellent stay.

Friendly staff, brilliantly situated for old town, easy parking but hotel rooms are a little dated, especially bathrooms, roof terrace for sunbathing is small, pool not really suitable for swimming, not always tables available for breakfast in courtyard at busy times.

Very Friendly owner and Employers, clean rooms, beatyfull sun terrace and a (very) little sweet pool. Its perfect located, because it is quiet there, but you are in a one minute walk in the center of old town. And it has a own parking place which is perfect with a rental car.

It's already the second time we stayed in Palazzo Vecchio during our vacation on Crete. It is located in the old town, which is perfect since all tavernas and shops are within 5 min waliking distance, but you still have very quiet rooms. Next to it is also the historical Fortezza giving the scene a charming view. The rooms themself...

Well, what a find! A great little boutique hotel. Tiny and basic in places, but superb service, clean, and well above expectations. Fantastic value for money, and superb location. Parking free too. Who could ask for more.
