Bien dans l'ensemble
Le séjour s'est très bien passé l'hôtel est très bien situé à environ 20minutes à pieds du centre historique. Le personnel de l'hôtel et du restaurant attenant est très sympa et à l'écoute. Les chambres sont très correctes, le ménage est bien fait. Un problème de réception de télé, heureusement bonne wifi. Par contre ne pas espérer profiter de la vue mer fenêtre ouverte car rue hyper bruyante(on s'y fait). Le petit déjeuner très correct(petit bémol les œufs et omelettes pourraient être tenus au chaud). Par contre en Crète anglais impératif.

Excellent! From the comfort of the bed to the cleanliness of the room, everything was spot on. The location of the hotel was a little bit confusing, mainly because the main entrance is inside the hotel’s restaurant. The food was great and the breakfast was even better. Overall we definitely recommend this place!

Very Nice Hotel! Good location near the center
Very nice hotel with very lovely owners. Near the center but not too much (many bar/club in the center). Very clear and close to the beach. We had a good times there. Thanks you!

Clean and Comfortable
Overall the stay was great. The only negative is that it's a bit hard to find. The sign for the apartment isn't that big and somewhat hard to see. My advise is look for the Agrilia Restaurant because it is set within the restaurant. The owner and employees are great. At first I thought we had a beach view with balcony, we didn't. I'm glad now we had a room facing the courtyard because the strand on the beach can be very noisy. Parking can be a challenge in the area. Great location in old town Rythymno

2/10 Poor

Awful. Bed uncomfortable. Shower leaked out the hallway. Shower was backed up. Bugs around all the time. Nasty.

Clean and quiet
Needed a place to stay in a pinch. Room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Small like most rooms in Greece. The included breakfast was hearty and delicious. If I’m ever in Rethymno again, I would stay here for a night or two.
