Reviewed May 2, 2011

We stayed in Rethymno at Casa Vitae for 4 days during our Greece Honeymoon! The staff could not have been more warm and hospitable. From setting up a rental car to helping my wife get back her hat that she left on the catamaran to serving us breakfast in the room after breakfast time was over. Beyond the amazingly unique and beautiful venetian house that is the hotel, there service was impeccable and the location to Hania and Iraklion could not have been more convenient. Definitely recommend to rent a car to see the large island of Crete and enjoy the cobblestone streets filled with restaurants and bars right outside of Casa Vitae. We'll never forget our stay at Casa Vitae!

Our one night stay at Casa Vitae was very nice. It's clean and located in the heart of Old Town, an easy walk to the Fortress, shops and restaurants. We were somewhat frustrated in our effort to find the hotel because we were trying to drive to it, but it's impossible to drive through the narrow lanes. Once we figured that out, we were able to call the hotel, and within minutes staff came to us with a luggage cart to walk us back.

We were absolutely taken aback when we entered our room, as it looked like a beautiful room in a castle with the most modern amenities, including the most unique shower we had ever seen - it had bubble jets coming out of it from top to bottom. It was the nicest room we stayed in on our honeymoon around the Greek Islands.

We were welcomed with a complimentary bottle of champagne and wonderful treats for our honeymoon. The staff was very nice and attentive. They had a wonderful little breakfast buffet that you got to eat out in their lovely courtyard garden.

Rethymnon was a very unique, quaint and historic place to stay, and we very much enjoyed it. There are wonderful restaurants, including the best seafood we have ever had at Mouragio Maria's, right in the little harbor area. However, the drive from the boat dock out there was quite long, and we might rethink staying closer to the main city next time. However, we were able to take a relatively reasonably priced bus tour out to the famous Knossos Palace and into the main city of Iraklion.

If you want to stay in a quaint, throwback town, then Rethymnon is definitely your place and the Casa Vitae Hotel is a wonderful place to stay!

This is a beautiful 16th Century Venetian building that's been tastefully restored. We booked a standard room but were upgraded to the honeymoon suite! (Cupids on the bathroom ceiling). Big room, big comfortable bed, aircon....every comfort. Generous breakfast was served in the courtyard. Charming and helpful staff. Highly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel from the 28th August to 8th Sept 2010. We stayed in the 'Amaryllis' Junior suite. We would highly recommed this suite for couples as it has every you would ever need for a romantic getaway.

As for the overall hotel and staff, we could not fault any of them at all. The venetian hotel is picture perfect and looks as it is describesd on the hotel website. All the staff where highly professional and extremely polite and accomodating. the location of the hotel was also idea to get to all the hotspot of the Rethymno.

We will definately return to this hotel again.

To Eleftheria and all her staff..

Lots of loves from Salim and Milica
