Stay in an architectural marvel in the heart of rethymno. Exceptional service, and attention to detail throughout. With unique layout and eclectic design in the rooms, each visit is a unique experience. Refreshing plunge pool and yummy local food!
When you look at at their night photo's there appears to be one large hotel, when in fact what you see are two hotels, but not realising it as they are located across a lane way from each other. This confused us when booking & we actually chose a room that did not really suit us. Both hotels share the same reception & kitchen. Generally all the staff are very helpful & friendly with the exception of one gentleman on reception was very snappy when asking about the water policy, that being 2 free small bottles during your stay, not to each day like a lot of othe hotels we stayed in during our 13 weeks in Greece. The one we stayed in is Polazza Rimondi, it has a compact pool in the courtyard where breakfast is served. The other being Rimondi estate. On arriving we noticed the pool in our hotel looked untidy with leaves in it, during our stay that did not change much except we did see it cleaned on on Occassion, there was also a piece of electrical wire laying across the entry, they could be a little tidier. The breakfast has a good coverage breads, cakes & pastries, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, whole, diced & sliced. Sliced meats, trout, cheese etc. They have several hot dishes, always scambled eggs, lightly cooked bacon & mini frankfurts, mixed pies. The rotate between baked beans & grilled veggies. I found the baked beans & scrambled eggs nice and warm but the rest generally cold or Luke warm. We chose a Duplex Palazzo, obvious now it is a tri level in the Polazzo hotel. On entry you have a little bar area (good size mini fridge with coffee/ tea glasses etc, the mini bar is also stocked. The compact bathroom is also on this level. Down 3 steps, a lounge area with wardrobe & small low table. This is where you stow your clothes. From the entry you also go up a narrow staircase to the tight bedroom whith an impracticle writing table and stool situated under a stair well, when you stand up you hit your head. There is also a good size balcony overlooking the pool courtyard area. We did not use it as the two aircon motors are situated here, making it noisy & hot due to the heat output of the motors. We found it uncomfortable going down the stairs at night & also to get changed or dressed. As we said we just chose the wrong type of room.…
This hotel was somewhat disappointing. Agree with a previous comment that photos are nearly all of the Estate side of the hotel. Room was ok not great . Duplex unsuitable for some people as very steep stairs. Shower leaked, bathroom small. Breakfast disappointing, hot food was cold, poor selection. An earlier review suggested that you could have breakfast at either hotel but this is not true if you are on the Palazzo side but perfectly acceptable for people on the Estate side to join friends and breakfast on the other side, very unfair. Breakfast in the courtyard also made very unpleasant due to the smell of cat urine. At night the cats take over this area. There are nicer hotels in the centre of this beautiful old town.
I agree that the staff are wonderful, but the breakfast was very disappointing after reading the previous wonderful reviews. I am not sure but I think in my opinion the guests in the estate side get a better breakfast as I peeked in one morning. We stayed in the palazzo side for 10 days and I can only say that the food and drink were tepid at best. I did mention this once and the lady offered to go and get me some hot from the estate side. We had a good room though, with a walk in shower and a small balcony overlooking the pool and alley. We did have a problem with the light coming through the balcony because for some reason the curtains didn't close all the way, but we solved this by closing the shutters. The drinks are of a better quality than the bars, especially the ouzo and you don't pay that much extra plus you get a little snack with them. Also if you are sitting in the pool areas they always bring a cold glass of water. The surrounding streets have some wonderful tavernas and bars. We did try the shops, but it was annoying as most of them wouldn't take cards, they only wanted cash. It was amazing how many times the internet wad down or the machine was broken!! Luckily was tavernas take cards. Our favourite was stavros taverna. In conclusion, if it wasn't for the breakfast, I would have given them 5 stars, but as I said the staff more than make up for it. …
We were not happy with our stay at this hotel. We had to climb 3 flights to our room, the room was dark, the bathroom small, and there was a faint smell of sewage every time we came to the room, although it disappeared when we opened the window. We found it quite depressing for what should be a high class hotel. The breakfast was also so-so - not up to the standard of other hotels in this category.
The room in which we stayed in (104) was dated. The room was at ground floor level and the window looked out onto the street. The bathroom was small and there was constantly an unpleasant smell from the floor drains (which we had to cover with towels). The room was generally dark and slightly depressing. There was an upstairs sitting area which was only accessible by steep stairs and a dark outdoor seating area which we didn't use. We were told the hotel was fully booked so we didn’t feel it was likely to be moved. The pool was very cold and could only be described as a plunge pool. There were no beds to lie around the pool. There was a slightly larger pool across the road but again limited beds to lie on. There was a sun deck on the roof but again very small with room for only four sun beds. On a plus side the room was very clean and the staff very nice. The breakfast was adequate. The location of the hotel was very good being in the centre of the old town. We have stayed in much nicer hotels for less.…
We enjoyed our 7 night stay with the beautiful old details of the hotel and tastefully updated facilities. Breakfast was great with a high variety and quality. The pool areas are little exotic gems and the hotels size and layout contribute to a personal and calm experience. Amongst the smaller drawbacks were that our room was located so that noise from the lobby would at times wake us up - probably a cost of staying in an old building. Also we missed an area where we could lie down and read in the sun. We found a small rooftop terrace, but unfortunately it was persistently occupied. Overall a great experience and we would go back!
We enjoyed our visit to this hotel and likely would return. There are a few things to keep in mind: Pros: Located in the center of the Old City. Many restaurants and shops nearby. Staff was generally friendly. Manager was very helpful and pleasant. Room was clean. Breakfast was good. We had massages at the hotel which were excellent. Cons: The area is a bit touristy. There are no cars allowed in the historic old city, so be prepared to park a few blocks away and walk to the hotel along cobblestone streets. This is important to note if you have lots of luggage or have any physical limitations. WiFi was unreliable. The A/C in the room was set to Econo mode when we arrived which led to a sweaty first night, they fixed it after we inquired the next day. I wish that had been made clear to us when they showed us the room so that we could have been comfortable from the start. One front desk gentleman was extremely hard to communicate with, it was beyond a language barrier, he always seemed very stressed out and not very welcoming. The two pools are very small and close at 7pm which seems oddly early in the summer.…
I came to the hotel for a weekend with my wife My room is in a basement , with no lights from the outside , there is a terrible smell in the room , the shower is not delivering any water . I dont understand the rating of this place . I you can avoid the place at all cost because it is super expensive for what you get .
