Very well located in the old town with numerous restaurants nearby (Alanis and Castelo recommended - avoid Melina) and plenty of shopping for a gentle stroll. Quite a simple hotel but clean and friendly for a fair price. If you are looking for a central location with a

One week stay with my girlfriend, the hotel itself is excellent and the location is perfect, you are right in the middle of the old town but also about a 3 min walk to the harbour, and a 10/15 min walk to the beaches. There are so many nice restaurants and bars on your doorstep.

Hi, Where was that amazing seafood from your photo? was it the hotel?
Hello there. The photos are from Zefyros Family Fish Taverna which is down on the harbour front in Rethymnon. Email them if you want to book a nice table as it gets very busy. They are very helpful and speak very good English too! We had another very good fish/seafood meal right next door too, in the Cavo Doro restaurant. Both were superb. Enjoy!

"Over looking swimming pool was quiet"
"Choose a room facing the pool area."
"For shade during day, ask for room facing the street. Rooms facing pool area are probably quieter."
"Street view rooms have the least sun : rooms over the pool would have the most."
"Ask for room with a pool view if you can Balcony in room 214 is sunny and nice view of pool area."
