Fodor's Review

Bright, airy, and stylish accommodations in a modern building are perched over the harbor at the edge of the Old Town, providing expansive sea views and a sense of being away from the fray but just an easy walk of the city's sights and attractions. While crisp striped fabrics and expanses of handsome wood veneers suggest Greek sophistication, the emphasis is on old-fashioned Cretan hospitality, including a selection of meat and vegetable pies, local cheeses, and other island specialities in the large breakfas buffet. Coffee, drinks, and snacks are served on the harborside terrace out front, a favorite gathering spot for locals, too, and guests have use of bicycles for a spin around town.

Porto Veneziano Review

BEWARE CARD SCAM AT THIS HOTEL On the 12 January 2012 I paid for my accommodation with my credit card. The transaction was processed twice and a credit to the value of R3385.00 was supposed to have been done.(To date, 4 June 2012 I have not received it) On my return home I contacted the hotel to enquire about the outstanding credit. I was given an apology and an offer of a discounted rate if I decide to stay there in the future. Small compensation

given the large amount owing to me.I was told it was not the hotels problem - I had to take it up with my bank. I have kept in constanct contact with my bank but they say the hotel is not accepting the charge back. Sad, sad sad!!
