While this hotel is as good as it looks - and it looks beautiful - the best thing about it is the warmth of the staff and the impeccable quality of their service. After a week here we feel like family. So sad to leave.

it was really excellent and very warm. People there are very kind and ready to help and assist. In the heart of the city can offer everything that a traveler needs. Appropriate for families, holidays, business trips.

I do not think I can say enough nice things about this hotel. The level of detail put into making this hotel beautiful, romantic, and inviting is stunning. As an added bonus, all of the employees go out of thier way to be helpful. Obviously some of the rooms are fancier than others, but all are gorgous. We saw 3... More

We decided to stay here for a romantic weekend away from Heraklion, based mostly on the good reviews on here. No regrets! The place is absolutely everything people say it is, with exceedingly friendly and welcoming staff who are eager to make your experience wonderful, and perfectly comfortable rooms. We stayed in January and it was more than well-equipped for... More

We arrived in Rethymnon and walked through Old Town and found our hotel - another trip highlight. We stayed at the Casa Vitae Hotel for two nights and we both wish we could have spent the entire winter here! It was decorated perfectly and had such a warm and cozy feeling. The staff took our bags and gave us drinks... More

Very romantic and nice adult atmosphere. Excellent service and very helpfull staff. Breakfast was very good and omelettes were tasty, but the service was a bit slow and things got forgotten several times. The room was nice although a bit small and the shower was a little bit akward and quite small. But still, I loved it there.

The hotel building has an amazing architecture and the room was very comfortable in every way. All the hotel staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We stayed in the hotel for a week and felt like home. The hotel is at a walking distance to shops and the beach. If we ever go back to Rythymnon again, definitely staying at... More

This small hotel is in the old quarter of Rethymno in a Venetian building from the 1600s. The setting is very attractive with the rooms facing onto a courtyard with a fountain. Breakfast is served in a loggia area in the courtyard which had plastic screens to keep it warmer when we were there in November (although it was not... More
