My husband and I stayed at this hotel this July (2016) together with friends. We really enjoyed our stay here. We had a clean room, an då it was cleaned every day. The beds even slept good, something I don't often experience. The cleaning lady on the third floor was SO friendly! There was no noise from outside either. With... More

We arrived @Fortezza on the 24th of July 2016 and we did not have many options where to stay so we just asked randomly. The hotel is well placed in Rethimnos and anywhere you go you always end up at the street of the hotel. We payed 99euros for a standard room (breakfast included). The room was crystal clean (props...

It's a while since I stayed here, but the rooms are nice and clean, and the staff is really friendy and helpful. Opposite the hotel there is a supermarket, there are car rental, and resturants almost next to the hotel. The hotel is in the older part of town, and the streets has a lot of charm.

Just returned from lovely relaxing holiday at the Fortezza. The hotel is located in the old town which was great for us as our party ages ranged from 18 to 82 so there wasn't far to walk before you were in amongst all the restaurants and shops. Staff were all so helpful and keen to offer advice on places to... More

Beautiful pool - just what you need after visiting the old town as the beach is not great. Very helpful and friendly staff at the reception. In June we found a parking space near the hotel - the car park was 9 euros.

While traveling from Chania, and on our way to Heraklion we decided to spend 2 nights in Rethymnon. The very appropriately named Fortezza Hotel was our host for the time. The hotel is just a 100 meters from the main entrance to the Venetian fortress (Fortezza) of Rethymnon, the main tourist attraction. Our room was on the pool side with... More

We stayed for one week at the Fortezza at the beginning of October. For a small hotel, 50+ rooms, there are various lounge areas which are really smart and comfortable. A nice sized pool with plenty of loungers, a smart bar with lots of seating places. Breakfast room was clean and nicely furnished and plenty of choice from self service... More
