Rethymnon just made one of those must see lists you run across on the internet every now and then. And unlike a lot of those stories, this one is absolutely true. You gotta see if. And if you're lucky enough to make the trip, the Bellagio is the place to stay. It's beautiful, just like all the reviews say. But what really made it memorable was the way we were welcomed by our two hosts. They could not have been nicer or more helpful. Saying goodbye was tough.
The Bellagio Hotel is a real gem. It is a beautifully renovated old Ottoman residence. It’s located in the middle of the historic district of Rethymnon, within a short walking distance of all the important sights of the city. We arrived too early to check in but the two wonderful hosts, Catherine and Evgenia invited us to have coffee and pastries which we waiting for our room to be ready. They were very friendly and showed us an interesting book detailing the history of the house. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was wonderful. I strongly recommend choosing the Bellagio Boutique Hotel for anyone looking for a classy place to stay in Rethymnon.
Our problem was that we could not have stayed longer! From the moment we were welcomed into the Bellagio Boutique Hotel, to the day we said “good-bye”, we were treated as though we were the only guests in the hotel. Catherine and Eveyenia were wonderful. I loved Catherine’s admonition to call with any request whatsoever. “I sleep with one eye open” she said with a smile. In the room, a small card made the point again, “If you wake up in the middle of the night with a dream, call me and I’ll tell you what it means”. The hotel is located in the heart of the city, and yet is perfectly quiet for sleeping. Our room, Erotiko, had a good shower, air conditioning and a comfortable bed. Plus a private Hammam, which we enjoyed. Breakfasts were delicious, with a large variety of choices. We took advantage of Catherine’s offer of help on the morning of our departure. My wife’s shoe had broken as we explored the city. “Is there somewhere that we could have it repaired”, we asked. An hour later the shoe was like new again. Our time in the Bellagio, although short, was lovely and memorable.…

We loved this hotel, the whole experience was perfect thanks to the hospitality and attention to detail. We arrived to complimentary cold white wine and recommendations from Cathrine about the area which were great! The room was comfortable with cold water, fridge and good air conditioning, the bed was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was outstanding, the best we have had on our 3 week trip to Greece.. fantastic choice and eggs cooked to order.. I cannot recommend this hotel enough, a real gem!
