No shortage of advice and good recommendations from the staff when requested.
In a great location to explore the old town with excellant resturants, bars and even a good club, all within a few minutes walk but the hotel itself remains quiet. despite the location.
We would certainly recommend this hotel, we liked the way it has been designed and the fact it is small with such attentive staff ticked all the box's.

We stayed at the Rimondi in late August and were immediately welcomed like family by Maria. She went out of her way to recommend places to eat and didn't hesitate to steer us away from some of the overrated ones (we always appreciate that!). The rooms were large, clean and quiet and the reception area is very charming. Sitting and reading by the small pool after a long day of hiking and exploring was wonderful.

I would not hesitate for a second to go back to the Rimondi and highly recommend it as a place to stay for those who are simply looking for a clean, charming small hotel with a very attentive staff.

We stayed at the Rimondi Estate for 2 nights.

We had an Executive Suite which was maisonette, with the bed upstairs and a large sitting area as well as the bathroom downstairs. We had direct access from our room into the lovely courtyard which features a (small) swimming pool (which is an exception for the hotels in the old town of Rethymnon) and a lounge area.

Breakfast was devine, with a large selection of local produce and warm dishes.

The service at the hotel is not 100% comparable to other 5 star hotels: Staff seems to be shared with the hotel next door, which is why the reception desk was sometimes left empty. To order something from the bar/restaurant during the day proved difficult (meaning you have to shout out for staff around the hotel) at times because mostly no staff was around. I also had a massage from the spa menu which I had to pay cash (without informing me prior to the massage) because it was not possible to charge this to my room. Definitely not the service I expect from a 5 star hotel.

Really the only downside to this hotel was the a bit lacking service from the staff even though they were very friendly.

This is the second time we've visited the hotel during the month of October. I dare say it is really worth it . The temperature is still high and the beautiful autumn colours interchanging at the swimming pool give a different allure. The owners of the hotel (yes,we did have the chance to meet them), are the ones who designed Rimondi Estate, as they are also architects. They are very friendly (no wonder why their staff is so friendly too) and hospitable. They actually give a sense of cosiness at this luxurious hotel. They agreed with us when we told them we had the feeling October is the best period to visit the hotel and they also had their own theory. I admit, I am a fan of this hotel,but you really have to visit it especially in October....

Probably the nicest hotel room I've ever stayed in. Very clean, nicely appointed, great shower, The staff was very friendly, and extremely helpful with directions and suggestions. The hotel is in a great quiet location...very close to some of the best restaurants in all of Crete. The breakfast was also very nice with a pool side location.

Room Tip: We had room #2. Nice and quiet.
