The hotel consists of 23 Junior Suites, Suites and Maisonettes and has been restored with skill, taste and respect to its history.
Palazzo Vecchio was built in the 15th century, when the Venetians were on Crete. It used to be the mansion of the powerful Lord of Rethymnon, who had large properties in the countryside as well as his main residence in Rethymnon, to protect himself from the locals as well as to offer his military and civil services to the Venetian Administration.
The hotel consists of 23 Junior Suites, Suites and Maisonettes and has been restored with skill, taste and respect to its history. Standard room facilities include a private bathroom with hairdryer, kitchenette with fridge, air-conditioning, telephone, satellite TV, Wifi internet access and a balcony or terrace.
The hotel has the benefit of a “Roman Style” swimming pool which is quite rare in old properties in the city.
