My partner and I spent a night in this charming hotel - and we were sad we couldn't spend another. Location in the Old Town is ideal, with the important sites of the gorgeous city all reachable on foot. We had a junior suite and it was very comfortable with an amazing bed. Breakfast was simple, but tasty, and.... Freshly-squeezed...

The service was very warm and friendly. The hotel is situated right in the middle of the Old Town of Rethymno just beside the Fortezza and very near from lovely restaurants and shopping streets. I and my sister stayed only for two nights but were comfortable in this petite hotel. The room was clean, breakfast good and their coffee excellent.

A friendly hotel in the city centerFriendly hotel in the city center, run by a nice, warm and friendly family. Although I stayed there alone, the big boss joined me a few times to keep me company.

Palazzo Vecchio is worth its palace name, the hotel was a pleasure to stay in. We visited it in September for a couple of days. My boyfriend says we should definitely get back some time. The hotel is remarkable, both because of its beautiful view to the seaside and close location to the center of the old town. We had...

We stayed here because booking.com let us down and had double booked our room elsewhere. We had stayed here for a night previously in July and loved it. Fantastic staff who make you feel really welcome and fantastic location. Try and get a room with a balcony facing the fortezza great for people watching! Thank you to (Angela? ??) For...

Just back from staying in this lovely hotel for the 3rd time. Very pleased with our room, overlooking the Fortezza. We had a spacious bedroom and kitchen/dining area but we loved having our lunch on our small balcony. Good news that the hotel now has its own private parking just beside the hotel. The staff are all so helpful and...

After a delayed flight and a transfer that dropped us off far from the hotel with a vague wave of the hand and the instruction “Hotel that way”, we eventually arrived at the Palazzo Vecchio close to midnight, tired and bedraggled, only to be warmly welcomed by Irini and Theo with glasses of raki and sweets. It was a lovely...
