Rethymno is located in the centre of the island of Crete, just 60 km from the city of Chania and 80 km from Heraklion. Hotel Ideon is situated in the most atmospheric and historic part of the town of Rethymno. Only a few meters away from the old Venetian harbour in the north-west entrance of the town and under the Venetian Fortezza by the sea. The large public parking is just steps away from the hotel entrance and makes access easy for all vehicles. On the outskirts of the commercial and cosmopolitan area of the town centre, the hotel location has the advantage of being within walking distance of everything a visitor needs.
