Firstly, this is a very well placed hotel! 5 minutes to the beach and 10 minutes to the historical old town. As well as being 3 minutes from the busstation that can take you to many places on Crete.The rooms were extremely clean, well kept and included everything one might need (AC, stove, fridge, etc.). We were even shocked to find a bottle of wine generously placed out for us upon entering the room as a welcoming gift.The roof side pool is small, but serves it's purpose well of being a convenient opportunity for a quick dip and a tan.The pinnacle of our experience was the staff. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable. On our last day we were departing at 06:45, which was before the breakfast begins. The staff were kind enough to provide us with a smaller breakfast buffet anyways.I highly recommend that you consider this place if you are planning a vacation in Rethymno!

I stayed with my family at this beautiful hotel. The Family suite was very spacious and comfortable with all amenities. The location of the hotel is perfect, just 5-10 minutes far from the old town. All staff members were very polite and helpful. We will definitely come back if we visit Rethymno again in the future!

We stayed there from October 16th till October 25th 2022 and had an excellent stay with a perfect and very friendly service. E.G. we asked for an anti-slip mat and expected it days later but we got it in the evening when we came back.It was always possible to ask for help (I'm using a manual wheelchair and need sometimes help) and we got it very quickly and without any discussion like it happens often in other hotels.Also the prepared room for wheelchair usage was partly better set up as in rooms in other hotels where the "Wheelchair"-room is specially build for wheelchair-usage.The only not so perfect item is the exit to the balcony of the room which is not possible to do it alone with a manual wheelchair as the "step" is bit to high, but it is doable with an electric wheelchair.Many Thanks to everybody in the hotel for your perfect and very friendly help!!PS: The Receptionist lived long a time in Germany and speaks perfect!!!
