Wonderfully located hotel with sea views. Good value. Clean and simply furnished. Very helpful and friendly owner. The hotels central location is great for exploring this interesting, vibrant and historic town. Not the most comfortable bed I have to say, but for a couple of nights this place was a great choice.

The room had all the amenities you require for an overnight stay, clean, comfotable and spacious. The hotel is run by a friendly and accomodating couple. No breakfast facilities which was not a problem considering the big...

Booked the Suite with harbour view, primarily for the private balcony, and were thrilled! Chania is generally regarded as prettier than Rethymno, but my wife preferred the compact quaintness of this old port town - primarily as a result of our location. We were able to drop our baggage off at a roundabout right outside the hotel entrance, which enabled...

An unbeatable location in Rethymnon, right on the harbour with fantastic views. The staff could not be more helpful or attentive and there is a small kitchen for communal use which is a real asset. We used the kitchen quite a lot for breakfast and even some basic lunches which kept eating out expenses lower than usual for an hotel...

Walking distance from the bus station, wonderful location, excellent rooms and friendly staff. Stayed here twice and each time a pleasant experience. Easy to find, just head towards the lighthouse. Near to the fortress and walking distance to the beach. Quiet in the evening, more so than the other hotels along the promenade. View from the rooms is great, too!
