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.

This is a lovely hotel, quiet, friendly service, good modern rooms that have been recently refurbished, the bathrooms are excellent with plenty of hot water. The air con works well and the shutters, double glazing and curtains provide a very dark, noise free room at night allowing a great sleep. The breakfast is an excellent continental style selection (do not... More

This is a 3-Star hotel that we would rate as 4-Star! Location is excellent being in Rethymno Old Town, and adjacent to all essential (and other) services. All staff were courteous and efficient in their respective roles. The outdoor swimming pool and surrounds were maintained in ultra-clean condition. Free WiFi was fast and provided excellent connections throughout the property. A... More

The staff were very helpful and polite and the hotel is located in a perfect position. I highly recommend this hotel. It was reasonably priced as... More

Cozy, very clean hotel with great, very helpful service. Very nice - but small - rooms (rooms facing the street are a bit noisy). Good breakfast - a buffet-style table. Nice swimming pool with towels. Hotel is situated in the best part of the town - in the heart of Old Town, close to restaurants, bars, harbor & bay.

The Fortezza hotel Rethymno is a really nice hotel in the old town of Rethymno. The upside is that there are a lot of nice restaurants close by. Also you can take some nice walks in the old town. As a small downside the beach is 10-15 minutes walk. The hotel has been recently renovated. It offers a pool, free... More
