How to Get There
We stayed 11 days here, it’s a lovely hotel well situated in the old town. Quiet and peaceful surroundings.
Breakfast is very good, if a little repetitive after a week.
Previous reviews spoke highly of nearby beaches, however we were very disappointed, the nearest beaches (around 10-15 minutes walk) are extremely busy, very commercial and back on to a busy road. Walking along the front you could be anywhere, personally we prefer something more ‘Greek ‘. Therefore we took a bus to Georgioupoli about 25 minutes, which is still busy but pleasant. Luckily we noticed some beaches on the way, so hired a car and explored. Found some lovely beaches along here towards Georgioupoli, and spent our days here, lovely beach and tavernas with a much better Greek feel. Only about 20 minutes on a bus.
Evenings in the Old Town are great, lots of lovely restaurants, particularly Kapalio, just next door! And some great bars dotted about.
We had a lovely room at Rimondi, over looking the pool, and it was always kept spotlessly clean.
We felt the bar prices to be high in the hotel, which is a shame as we would have stayed for a drink or two before heading out to dinner.
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We changed rooms from the Maisonette to a larger suite because we did not like the bed being upstairs and the toilet downstairs and the room was quite basic although full of character.
The hotel is ideally situated and was quite quiet even though it is very central. The staff were very helpful and obliging. Breakfast was enjoyable especially because you could have it out in the courtyard in the fresh air.
We visited this hotel for a weeks break in crete. We initially booked the standard room but upon arrival took up the offer of the upgrade to the deluxe suite. Spacious and well appointed. The room looked over the main pool and breakfast area. The hotel is situated in the old town, so no traffic and no noise. Breakfasts were continental with fresh made eggs, to your choice. The hotel booked a taxi from the airport which was €90.Just below the going rate for airport based taxis. The staff were extremely helpful and spoke good English. If we visit this area again would definitely stay here again.
The hotel is located in the old Venetian part of town. You are surrounded by a network of narrow traffic free streets bustling with life. There are numerous, charming places to eat and drink all within a short walking distance. The streets have numerous shops of a good quality selling a full range of goods. The extremely picturesque old port is only minutes away and a fantastic beach a 15 minute walk.
The hotel is charming with no two rooms the same. The staff are all friendly and helpful. You can relax in the central courtyard along side the plunge pool in an are that is never too busy. A prime location for couples to relax and enjoy themselves in peaceful atmosphere.
Spent a week chilling in Rethymnon and this was the ideal hotel. Right in the middle of the old town but in a quite street that only had a few pedestrians and the odd bike passing by. The pool / breakfast area we used was gorgeous and very relaxed all day and all evening. We rarely return to any holiday venue but would certainly use this hotel again. Owned by architects it has a lovely mix of old and new, functional but friendly, classy but homely. All the staff were good but especially so Glikeria at breakfast.
