Although not billed as an adults only hotel, Palazzino di Corina's layout, lack of play area, small deep pool and distance from beach does not make it particularly child friendly - which suited us perfectly.Huge in character this really is a feel good hotel.
Despite requesting a twin room we were allocated a double room or arrival.They apologised and said that they'd do what they could to resolve the following day. Our original room 'Sapfo' had a decent layout with a great shower although it was very noisy at night - a constant thump from nearby clubs and occasional loud scooter.
We were very happy to find that our new twin room 'Demetra' overlooked the inner courtyard as in addition to the wonderful view, it was much quieter despite being on the 1st floor. There was no shower though just a 'whirlpool' type bath with a handheld shower.My wife loved it although I prefer a conventional shower.There was a small ammount of mould around some of the bath sealant but it should be said that the rest of the room and the hotel as a whole was spotless.
The breakfast was a little dissapointing.A very basic choice.Once we had spinach pies which were great but for the rest of the time it was mostly bread,cheese,spam and tomatos.There was a little more choice on the last day with some omlette pieces and sausage so maybe it picks up a the season progresses.Quick tip - if it's quiet and you ask nicely they'll make you an espresso FOC rather than the rather insipid stuff in the catering jug.
The tiny plunge pool is great for cooling off after a long days walk.There are also 2 sunbed to dry off on afterwards.
Don't neglect the restaurant attached to the hotel. The lamb kleftico was the best i've ever had and the service was absolutely great.Also nice bar to chill out in too.ALL staff - management to cleaners were great and made us feel completely welcome.
If you want to be away from the bucket and spade brigade and at the heart of a vibrant town then Palazzino di Corina is for you but please bear in mind that it can get a little noisy at night.

Room Tip: 'Demetra' - Twin beds pushed together.Great view and much quieter.

This is a small "boutique" style hotel with an excellent bar and restaurant. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we got off the transfer coach. The hospitality we received was first class and all the staff went out of their way to look after us. I realise the Cretan hospitality is legendary but I have never felt more welcome and at home than at the Palazzino di Corina.

The whole hotel is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The rooms are well appointed and clean. Breakfast is continental style and is plentiful. We ate an evening meal in the restaurant twice during our week stay and both meals were excellent using the freshest ingredients. Predictably we spent some evenings in the bar after our evening walk/meal and we were always well looked after by Christos who is a charming, friendly man and an absolute star.

The hotel is in the old town and perfectly located just 5 mins walk from the Fortezza, Rimini Fountain/Town Centre with all its tavernas and restaurants. The beach is a relaxed 15 - 20 minutes walk but do walk via Arkadiou rather than Eleftheriou Venizelou and you will avoid being bugged by English and French "hawkers", plus it's a more pleasant walk through the town.

Do remember that you are in the middle of a town with a busy tourist trade and there is some night time noise - take some earplugs if you are a light sleeper or just drink lots of Raki after your meal (which is very easy given the hospitality that you will enjoy).

We booked this holiday through Thomson who were excellent. We are already planning to return !!.

This charming hotel (booked through Thomson) was a lovely place to stay in the heart of the Old Town of Rethymnon. The place had bags of character: a mixture of Venetian, Turkish, Greek architecture. The owner of the hotel was a very gracious, helpful person and the staff were friendly. Our "junior suite" had a balcony over the street, a nice big "sleigh-style" bed, sofa and private hydro-massage shower in the bathroom. The breakfast was very good with Cretan food such as olives, feta cheese, Cretan bread, locally grown tomatoes, selection of mini pastries filled with spinach or vanilla custard and the usual cereals, greek yoghurts, toast, eggs, etc. One of the best reasons for staying was to walk out the main entrance and be in the old town with it's old cobbled streets, small squares filled with restaurants, tavernas, shops. It was so pleasant to walk around the Old Town during the day, or at night when huge old-fashioned gas lamps (filled with modern energy saving bulbs) lent a lovely romantic atmosphere. The harbour was a 5 minute walk away. The only thing to be wary is that you are in a city and there are street noises at night, and the local club/bar scene is down the way. This only disturbed us one night at a weekend. However, don't let this put you off staying here, it's not a "fault" of the hotel itself. There is much to see in Rethymnon and there is a local bus station (about a 10 minute walk along the coast) where buses will take you to a few towns along the northern coast such as Chania (a beautiful port and old town) and Heraklion (where you can get another bus to the Palace of Knossos; and Agia Galini on the south coast, a lovely fishing village. Local buses are good value and on time, though if you go further afield, do check when the last bus is. Some couples at the hotel hired a car, and this might be a good way to go to those out of the way places that the local buses just don't go to.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up can be quieter. Our room had heavy shuttered doors which kept out light in the early morning.

Located perfectly for all the amenities that Rethymno has to offer. Walking in to the hotel from the street the atmosphere was extremely relaxed. Our 1st floor room had a small balcony, huge wrought iron bed and excellent shower. The aircon was a little noisy on occasion. The mini bar was well stocked but apart from some water and the odd beer we didn't use it as it was scandalously priced even by top european hotel standards! The breakfast buffet was what you would expect from a continental breakfast in Greece. The central courtyard was a very relaxing oasis though the plunge pool was nice to dip your hot feet into I didn't have the courage to have a full dip as it was freezing! Go to the beach for that! (10 mins walk) The restaurant hasn't been open long but on the 2 occasions we ate there the food was delicious- the fillet steak with a stroganoff sauce is recommended. The bar has good friendly service as was the service throughout the hotel. The one slight irritation was upon checking out.I would have thought the lady who gave us our bill would have had the courtesy to ask whether we had had a good stay! Not to worry I'm not going to mark the hotel down because of that one small issue. I would suggest that you send an email to the hotel to request an upper floor room on the Damvergi side of the hotel as those on the ground floor lacked some privacy and those rooms on the other side of the hotel could be prone to street noise.

Room Tip: An upper floor room is a must
