Bellagio Boutique Hotel
Ranked #25 of 175 Hotels in Rethymnon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We stayed in the bellagio hotel for 3 nights and we loved it. I need to say that the only reason why we didn't rate this property as excellent was only because our room did not have an outdoor window.... We were not expecting to get to the room and the only window that the room had was facing the interior patio where the other guests need to go through to their rooms... so we had to have the curtains closed so there was not a lot of light in the room. Apart from that it was great, Evi and her mother were great and they were always very helpful to provide us with restaurants names and places to go.
The hotel is placed in the old town which is great, the street is quiet but 1 minute away there is all the action and great places to eat and drink. The car park is very close but it is not free. We haven't paid most of the days we were there because nobody was there to pay but I would say that is around 10 euros for a full day.
We were enjoyed our stay.

We arrived in Rethymnon at 9:00 pm via taxi from Heraklion and walked around old town with our bags looking for the right street. When we found the hotel our reaction was WOW. The manager, Evi, was waiting in the lobby. After a quick tour of the hotel we freshened up to go out for dinner. On the way out, Evi offered us a glass of wine and we chatted with her and a couple from England for a while before going out. The restaurants and shops start right outside the front doors so the location was perfect. Breakfast was a spread of pastries, breads, fruit, orange juice, coffee, etc. - way more than we needed. The room was beautiful with a private terrace and hammam. Everything was cleaned perfectly daily. Had a bottle of wine and fruit basket in our room on arrival. After 3 nights, we took an early bus back to Heraklion and had a hard time convincing Evi to not lay out breakfast for us at 6 am but she did get a coffee maker ready for us in our room and packed us enough food to feed a family for a week. The hotel is interesting, beautiful and spotless with very friendly and helpful staff. What more could you possibly want.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Erotika room and the private terrace was wonderful

Small family-run hotel, interesting decor, very friendly and helpful staff with excellent English. Free parking is nearby, although market there on Thursday means not available Wednesday night Thursday. 5 minutes away from good restaurants. Excellent breakfast is included.

There are not enough nice this to say about the Bellagio. We made our arrangements for out three night stay pretty late into our trip but Evi was wonderful be email in helping us get everything arranged before we arrived. We were going to get there quite late, about 10 p.m., but she said that was fine and she'd stay to get us checked in. We did get to town a little after 10 and had to call her for directions. She gave us great information then walked to the parking lot where we'd parked - the hotel is in the Old Town where there is no vehicular traffic- and helped us carry our luggage to the hotel. She greeted us with wine, cheese and fruit, and we ended up talking for more than 30 min before we even went up to our room - Evi is so personable, friendly and kind! We were in Room 5, a junior suite, which was incredible. Marble everywhere, an in room 'hammam' - turkish bath/steam bath, wonderful comfortable furnishings, and everything top quality and only a few years old. They spared no expense in remodeling the property - every where is beautiful. Breakfast every morning (included) was excellent - Evi and her mom made whatever you'd want and there was more food than you could possible eat We even left with snacks for each day at their insistence! The second night my wife was asking them about recommendations on where to buy table clothes, and, before we know it, all four of us - my wife and I, Evi and her mom are all heading out to two of their favorite non-touristy shops. Evi's mom took my wife's hand and arm and they walked the few blocks to the shop like they were old friends! They spent more than an hour with us looking at items, telling us what was quality and what was not, translating for us, etc. Amazing! We'd heard before this, our first trip to Crete, that the Cretans were especially friendly. Well, Evi and her mom at the Bellagio prove it! We really were treated like their family, not guests. One of the best lodging experiences we've ever had!!

Absolutely perfect - we give it 10 out of 10. Evi and her Mum run a first class hotel and are so kind and helpful - we felt more like friends than guests. The location was ideal - in a quiet street in the old town so there is easy access to the shops selling traditional fare, lovely restaurants and the old port plus nearby beach. If you hire a car the car park is only 200m away and costs about 7 euros per day (note it is closed on market days). The restaurants offer wonderful Cretan food - really delicious and reasonably priced. We visited nearby Chania but were pleased we chose to stay in Rethymnon as it felt more authentic and rustic. Wonderful stay. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Best to ask before booking as all people like different things. We had no problem with the inside ro...

Lovely designed hotel with such a friendly landlady Evi, who is very young, yet runs this hotel very professionally with the help of her mother. Their friendliness, kindness, and willingness to make their guest comfortable is really something not found in many places. You will be offered more than you can expect. Evi prepared a fantastic takeaway breakfast for us when we went on an early day trip. The hotel is beautifully decorated and is positioned in a small quiet street. Breakfast is delicious. A bottle of vine and a basket of fruit will wait you in the room upon arrival.

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite Gynaika on the second floor, which has its own inner patio, and is very spaci...

Three wonderful nights were spent at this beautiful little hotel at the end of our Cretan odyssey. It proved to be yet another highlight. Perfectly positioned just off the hustle and bustle but close enough to feel part of the Old City life, Bellagio is a lovely building. But what really makes it of course is the hospitality we received from Evi and her Mum. We enjoyed the lavish breakfast selection, the walks around the ancient streets and the most comfortable bed in the world. But best of all was being able to share it with our hosts. Less like hotel owners more like family.
