It located right near sea and harbor, but you need to walk around 1 km to the beach. Genoesian fortress - 500 metres from it. There are plenty of bars and restaurants around. Some of tham are very noisy and loud with crowds of local youngsters. Bus stastation in 10-15 min. walk. Ideon has nice pool and very friendly stuff....

We are consistently, pleasantly surprised by the quality of 3-star hotels in Greece (wonderful country - wonderful people).The Ideon in Rethymnon, Crete, is no exception. We asked for a seaview room and some reviewers said that that side of the hotel could be noisy, but we went late Septmeber 2011 and it was not the case. The hotel is 20...

This was my first visit to Crete & we really went so that we could visit Knossos. We booked this hotel because it was in the old town.

This hotel exceeded our expectations as we thought it might have been a bit run down, however we were pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel was fairly modern and in the best location if you were not looking for a beach holiday. The room was comfortable, shower OK (for Greece). Bar area was well looked after with free WiFi...

I booked this hotel from the Finnish tour operator and after reading room tips from Tripadviser reviews, I decided to contact the hotel beforehand, pre-guessing the room type, which I would get as a solo traveller.

Very nice hotel, spotlessly clean, friendly staff, good pool. Big cross-section of clientele, not all Brits, there were Germans, Finns, Dutch, American and French while we were there.
