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

We arrived very late at this hotel,having travelled from Heraklion by bus(just as quick as a taxi,and a fifth the price).We were welcomed cordially,and given the keys to our room.The room was average,but the supposed bed was two singles in frames pushed together.The frames made sure there was a gap in the middle,which was off putting.The mattress was also made...

We stayed for 7 nights in early October and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is right in the heart of the old town which is full of excellent restaurants and taverna's. The beach and main bus station are ten minutes walk as it the harbour with its own selection of waterside restaurants. Hotel Fortezza is very well managed, secure, very... More

Just returned from 14 nights in the Fortezza and it was excellent. The staff were all very welcoming and couldn't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. The location was the best - a 2 minute walk to The Fortezza and 5 minutes to the port. The pool was warm and inviting. We had a superior room on the roadside... More

This is the third time we have stayed in this lovely hotel and I'm sure we will stay again. I love the fact it's in the old town of Rethymnon. Everyone should see this old town at least once in there lifetime - it's special! I couldn't fault the staff, very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean with... More

It is a nice hotel, but only to sleep. The breakfast does not have many options to choose and is kind of poor for the price we paid for it. Swimming pool was in the average also. But as we go to see the city, it is fantastic as this place is right in the corner to the old town... More

Location is great and a shop/super market exactly opposite the hotel entrance comes very handy. Extra marks for cleanliness and air conditioning. The room is very basic. Bathroom has been refurbished and they are really good. Otherwise a standard average city/holiday hotel.

My family and I recently stayed at the Fortezza for 4 nights. The hotel itself is conveniently locate near the old town, waterfront and bus station. Breakfast was not as good as I expected. There was a decent selection but I expected a bit more variety and variation. For some reason although they appear to have plenty of staff they... More

A lovely hotel in the old town. Helpful staff - were really kind when we found we left something behind after our return home. Everything in the hotel worked well - including the much needed A/C. Positioned in a narrow street so drop off and pick up is from the Idion hotel just a couple of minutes walk away. Opposite... More

We are staying here at the moment and only 2 days into our stay here and I love this place. Very happy and friendly staff who can't do enough for you. Rooms are modern and very clean. An excellent choice for our hotel. Would highly recommend.
