For 102 euros you would expect a bit more. The room is basic, view of the pool, no safe in the room, empty mini fridge, couple of mini bottles of shampoo and bars of mini soap, towels...oh, and the breakfast was no better. One type of fresh fruit, some tomatoes and cucumbers, cereals breads, tang type juices, some eggs, bread,... More

We chose this hotel as it’s slap-bang in the middle of the old town of Rethymnon. I can’t fault the location, it’s perfect for the sights, restaurants and bars of the old town. I have no gripes about the hotel on the whole. The only thing that did disappoint a little was the size of the room and the balcony.... More

We spent 2 nights at the lovely Hotel in the town of Rethymno, Crete in early July 2014. The hotel is lovely and it is well situated a short walk from the town. There is a pool in very pleasant surroundings and we enjoyed lunches and drinks poolside. The Hotel itself is a cool oasis in this very warm place.... More

Just returned from a 9 night stay & we found the Hotel to be a great choice to stay. Location is excellent, you're right next to the lanes of the Old Town. Go either way out of the Hotel & there are plenty of restaurants & bars to be found. I loved where we were as it meant you could... More

We are a party of 7 and had a family holiday at the Hotel Fortezza in Reythymnon. The hotel staff were excellent: friendly, helpful and veryaccommodating. In particular, Chryssa was extremely helpful when my daughter's asthma was threatening to become more serious, and she advised us exactly what to do and where to go should it become worse during the...

Nothing but praise for this so well positioned hotel in the heart of the old town. Its rare to pick a hotel that delivers everything but I am so pleased that I picked this one. First time in Crete so wasn't so sure on what area to go to, but Rethymnon was a great choice. The hotel has been done... More

We arrived into Chania and booked a transfer through resorthoppa (€70 return for two). It took around 2 hrs to get there but if you take a taxi (€70 one way) it takes an hour. Rethymnon is a charming town with lots of old windy streets with Venetian architecture. The beach is a 15 minute walk from the hotel and... More

Small family run hotel that I would happily recommend and return to. Small pool area but more than adequate for residents. Very friendly staff and special mention to bar man Babis and waitress Maria..... Had some great chats with Babis and met his family which was special. Great hotel to stay in, modern rooms and very clean.

Excellent! Everything was spot on - this hotel is very well run with exceptionally efficient, pleasant staff. The pool area is very attractive, and the public areas within the hotel are spacious and very well appointed. The breakfast room was immaculate, and the breakfast fresh and plentiful. The hotel was in the Old Town - 10 minutes walk to The... More
