I have been raving about my three-night stay at the Veneto ever since I checked out. This was quite possibly the most unique, romantic and well situated hotel (and restaurant!) in which I have ever had the pleasure of staying. Once you actually find the place which is located on a short pedestrian "street" in the heart of the very maze-like Old Town area, you are greeted by very friendly and welcoming staff not to mention the foyer of a beautifully decorated and restored 800-year old monastery-turned-inn. After checking into our room which was actually a loft style with the bed located on a second level accessibly by a spiral staircase, we were welcomed graciously by Yannis, who I believe to be the owner, and introduced to the beverage, raki, which is Crete's tastier answer to Ouzo. Wow! What a start to a fantastic stay. We next settled down in the small Venetian-style courtyard for an amazing and relaxing dinner before setting out on a walk about the streets of Old Town. It doesn't sound or feel like it, but you are in the center of all the nighttime cafe action as well as what seems like around the clock shopping. Of all the places I stayed on my 3-week trip, the Veneto was easily the most quiet and comfortable and accommodating. I believe there are only 12 rooms, so if you're looking to be in the center of Old Town, book your room right away! You won't be disappointed!
