From the moment we stepped into the courtyard of the hotel both myself and my wife knew we were going to enjoy our week stay. We stayed in one of the junior suites named Daphne, i would recommed for anyone to spend the little more for a suite due to its lovely balcony overlooking the courtyard.The staff were fantastic nothing was to much to ask, from recommending restaurants to things to do & places to see -(THANK YOU).

Perfect location, Great breakfast (fit for a king), lovely staff. PERFECT!!

My wife and I were celebrating our 25th Anniversary and we could of not picked a better hotel to do so. We were welcomed at the front desk by Poppy and Maria and they were very friendly and Poppy even greeted us with home made Honey Raki which was delicious. When we got to our room we fell in love with the décor, it was rustic and beautiful exactly what we wanted from a small boutique hotel. The Breakfast was great and eating it in the courtyard was even better. The hotel is within walking distance to all of the quaint shops and restaurants. The courtyard is romantic. If we ever went back to Crete we would definitely stay here again.

My friend and I stayed 4 nights at Casa Vitae last week. It is a really excellent hotel in every way. Extremely comfortable room (except quirky space age spa shower!) and the staff could not have been more helpful. Breakfast in the courtyard was a delight. The hotel is also in a lovely quiet part of the old town where you can see locals going about their daily business, unlike streets closer to the old harbour which have lost their character to shops and tourism. Situated in the pedestrianised oart of he old town, we parked our hire car only 5 minutes way from the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel, and it deserves all the praise it has received in other reviews.

Room Tip: We had a room with a Juliet balcony. While it was not a balcony one could stand on, it was lovely to...

Right at the heart of the old town, very nice historical buildings, refurbished in the best way, extreme cleanliness, a rich breakfast, high level of comfort...And all these, for a very affordable price.

But there is more to it. Unbelievably friendly and kind staff, starting from but not limited to reception girls.

I may write pages about this lovely hotel, but to cut it short, let me tell you that if I ever visit Rethymno again, I wouldn't think twice for where to stay!

We, 2 couples stayed at the Casa Vitae Boutique hotel in Rythemno, Crete on June 2013 . We enjoyed the charming and calm patio garden in the midst of the old city, We appreciated the pleasant, clean and comfortable rooms as well as the good breakfast. Additionally we are thankful for the warm and attentive welcome of the staff at the reception (Athina, Maria, Poppy and Maria) . They did all they could to make us feel at home with practical tips such as good restaurants. I would frankly reveal that at first we had some hesitations since the old city is closed for cars and the parking (behind the police station) is about 4 minutes walk from the hotel. However, the dedicated staff was there to help us with the luggage upon arrival and upon departure. I warmly recommend the Casa Vitae and would stay there again when we visit this region of Crete.

We arrived at Casa Vitae a little haggard after driving around in circles a few times trying to find it. (Many of Rethymnon's streets are one-way or blocked off in places, which isn't always clear on Google Maps.) Maria and Poppy welcomed us with a smile and insisted we enjoy a welcome drink in the hotel's delightful and tranquil courtyard before checking us in. They also upgraded us to a superior room. Their restaurant and touring suggestions were extremely helpful. Breakfast was delicious. (If you are offered an omelet, take them up on it!)
