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

I wrote to the hotel and shortly after I had a response from the hotel manager. They would make sure that it was... More

Beautiful hotel right in the centre of the old town. Great staff in all departments who were always willing to help. Very clean. Breakfast was just great, lots of choice. Lots of lovely nooks and crannies to sit and read or play a board game. A great choice for all.

Hotel is in a fantastic location, it is very clean with pleasant staff. The set up is very Germanic as I would guess this is where a large percentage of their guest originated from. This is not necessarily a negative although some British visitors may find the rooms a little spartan (no pun intended) for their tastes. Our room had... More

Some fantastic staff but one that needs to improve on customer service. Make sure you check the price signed off on arrival as we were quoted one price then charged 30 euro more per night. No tvs in either room ( did not work in one and had been taken out if the other). Some confusion with rooms also as... More

We love this hotel and have been back twice now! Everything is perfect - the price - the location and the staff! Babis makes the best cocktails in Crete and Chrysoula and Chrissa are the friendliest ladies ever! See you next year!

I have nothing but praise for Fortezza Hotel. The staff was more than welcoming, the rooms were clean and inviting, the breakfast buffet was plenty and delicious and the location was nothing short of perfect.
