“Great little hotel/ apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

This is a lovely little hotel in the old town, close to the restaurants and bars and the beach. It's well maintained with an - admittedly shaded& small- but lovely pool.
The room we had was a duplex with a dining area and mini kitchenette that we didn't use but it was nice to have the space. We didn't have a private balcony but it was nice to sit on the shared terrace in the evening.

The parking is a little bit of a faff as after dropping your bags off you have to find a car park or on road parking and walk back but not a huge thing & the staff are really helpful.

A lovely old town hotel

This hotel far exceeds its exceptional reviews! We arrived in the afternoon to be greater by a smiling, friendly, well spoken man (named Andy) who took us to our room ( # 5 or # 6) which is located in the courtyard by the pool. Our room was beautiful! We had a cute patio set where we enjoyed having coffee in the morning, or wine at night. The room was the best equipped room we came across on our European adventure - beautifully decorated, boasting a kitchenette, couch, and dining table. The complementary breakfast in the morning was amazing and the fresh pressed orange juice was a real treat. The location, although tough to find ( no fault of the hotel at all, who offered directions which I declined shortly after booking) is lovely! Located off a busy shopping street, the hotel is truly a hidden gem. I will return to Rethymnon just to stay here again, and plan on spending more than four nights. Thanks Andy for making our stay fantastic!

Room Tip: Our room, which was either # 5 or # 6 (Ask Andy!) was absolutely beautiful! It was spacious, with a...

Mythos suites hotel is a nice restored manor house in the city centre. This place is close to everything, yet very quite, when you are inside.The location is great, there are several restaurants nearby (our favorite "Petite fleur"-3 min. from the hotel, Bakery stories - the best bakery ever, 8 minutes). The beach is 10 minutes and the bus station 15 minutes from the hotel. The hotel is difficult to find, but the "Euro shop" and the square with the cathedral are good markers.
We stayed in the suite nr.6, which was spacious, nicely decorated and clean. The bathroom was very nice and modern, the bed was really comfortable. The kitchenette was inside of the cabinet, which was convenient. Breakfest was delicous, the morning coffee was trinkable (which is not given for a hotel coffee:) The staff was very friendly and helpful.
The only issue was a lack of privacy, as our suite was on the ground floor and you literally could hear everything (first days we felt like in a changing room (a luxurious one)-you can not see the people but you hear them:)
We would recommend Mythos suites especially for elderly couples without children, who want to discover Rethymnon.

Room Tip: Choose a room on one of the higher floors as there is more privacy.

Perfect, relaxing, stylish, tranquil, ideally located, just a few words to describe this little gem of a boutique hotel in the old town.
The staff are so friendly and helpful and took pride in ensuring our stay was perfect. The breakfast was delicious and the Greek yoghurt is amazing, I've never tasted anything like it.
Only downside was a neighbours dog barking most of the night, but that was not the hotel's fault.
Highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent boutique hotel in the center of Rethmynon.

Breakfast is great (the best we had in Greece in 3 hotels so far). Very friendly staff. Excellent location (car parking is not near, but this is to be expected as you are literally in the heart of the city center)

We loved the Mythos Suites! The actual rooms (well, suite in our case) were delightful, with plenty of room and good facilities (kitchen, fridge, TV which could take a USB stick so that we could watch programmes from home that we wanted to catch up on). Breakfast was lovely and the staff were happy to give us a tray of food the night before on two days when we needed to leave early for trips.

Wonderful friendly people, perfect situation -- right in the middle of Rethymno Old Town -- but a real oasis of peace. (Possibly except for the church bells from the square, but that's hardly a big deal!) Bed very comfy.

Would definitely come back and will be recommending it to any of our friends who want to visit the area.

Room Tip: Room/suite 4 looks out onto the courtyard and has a little terrace outside with tables to chill out...

Such a friendly welcome at this hotel and the friendliness continued throughout our stay - all the staff took time to help us with good recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. Tucked away in a quiet cul-de sac just off one of the busy shopping streets the location gives easy access to the shops, restaurants and bars of the old town and the Venetian harbour. Rooms and public areas were nicely furnished and maintained. The hotel is ideal for those wanting a quiet, relaxing break.

Room Tip: Room 6 was perfect for us with a small table and chairs sited just outside the door and within 1 met...
