#44 of 175 hotels in Rethymnon
Hotel LEONIDAS is situated just 50 m. from the main beach, at a central point of the town of Rethymno, in the Kallithea area. It was radically rebuilt and renovated in 2007, following modern aesthetic principles which give the building its own secure and individual identity. It is a block of 24 studios and apartments with furniture and an equipped kitchen. Each room or apartment has its own bath, A/C, satellite TV and balcony. The hotel is open throughout the year. It is taken care, since 30 years, by the Spanoudakis family, so it has the advantages of the family atmosphere: it is friendly and quiet.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 11 nights. Lovely small hotel, great location, very quiet. Right near the beach and a short walk to the center of Rethymnon. The room was very comfortable and the kitchen had all the utensils to make breakfast. The room was well cleaned and everything worked great. Very nice staff. I warmly recommend this hotel!

We booked this hotel in November 2019 after researching many properties, due to arrive on 16th May. Unfortunately we did not foresee what was to unfold in 2020. Our flights were booked with Ryanair and, despite the travel restrictions, they were not cancelled until 1st May. As soon as lock down was announced, we knew we would not be allowed to travel but were uncertain at the time as to how long this would last. We have been in constant dialogue with the hotel trying to rearrange dates, then change again when lock down was extended. The management have been extremely patient and helpful whilst facing so much uncertainty and anxiety themselves. For some reason we hadn't taken the free cancellation option, something we always do. However, Leonidas have been very understanding and waived the fee. We would have liked to thank them via Booking.com but it appears once cancelled, you lose the facility to contact the hotel through them. We hope everyone stays healthy and safe and as soon as we are allowed to travel again, we will definitely re-book this accommodation

This Hotel is fabulous. We stayed for a week and had the most wonderful time. A family run hotel who made our holiday so lovely and memorable. The staff are lovely. The room we had was gorgeous. Two balconies, air conditioning in the bedroom and the sitting room and a fully equipped kitchen. Immaculately clean! Beds very comfortable. Breakfast was a mix of cooked and continental with fresh fried eggs, bacon, sausage. Feta and spinach filo rolls are amazing. Good choice of pastries. Fresh bread, fruit, cold meats and cheeses. Just perfect to start the day. We highly recommend this lovely place. We will definitely return if we come back to Rethymno 🥰🇬🇷💕
