According to travellers, the on-site restaurant offers exceptional food and an authentic Cretan dining experience.

Extensive views over the harbour

The views from the hotel are simply breathtaking, according to travellers. Apparently, the hotel’s location in the heart of the Venetian harbour offers perfect views of the Cretan Sea and the iconic lighthouse. Guests also say the view is breathtaking both from the rooms and the rooftop terrace. Overall, it seems the view is huge drawcard for them.

A warm welcome

The friendly, welcoming and helpful nature of the hotel's members of staff is something that earns frequent praise in visitor reviews.

Negative Reviews

Noisy due to lack of soundproofing

Travellers often complain of excessive noise from the surroundings. They report that noise travels from nearby nightclubs, restaurants and bars into the rooms. They say it can cause sleepless nights. Additionally, they mention that the walls of the hotel rooms are too thin.

Staircases can be a bind

For guests with limited mobility or heavy luggage, the lack of a lift at this heritage property means they have to tackle the stairs, something they often consider to be a drag.
