As first time travellers to Crete, the 6 of us (my wife and i with 2 adult sons and 2 girlfriends) stayed at the Byzantine for an unforgettable week in August, 2012. The hotel, all 9 rooms, gets 5 stars for character in my book. Nikos, the owner was the perfect host, recommending day trips and good restaurants. We had no idea what to expect when arriving in Rethymnon. The town and surrounding area (we rented a car for a couple of days) are great fun to explore. Lots of beautiful beaches, shopping and restaurants but the small town has not lost any of its wonderful Greek character. Walking around the narrow alleyways, streets, parks and beaches, we had great fun. All the small cafes and restaurants were all different and we never had a bad meal.
Looking back though it was the Byzantine and Nikos the owner that made the stay so special. If you want that personal attention and charm that you only get from the truly unique boutique hotels, make this your choice.
