Rimondi Boutique Hotel
Ranked #1 of 175 Hotels in Rethymnon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 September 2011

This is our third visit to Crete and we decided to stop in a small but very elegant Palazzo Rimondi, located in the heart of Rethymnon.

The place is very good. The historic center, shops and restaurants. Near is situated bus station where you can go to Chania or Heraklion (cost of the trip is less than 10 euros).

The building of the hotel (in fact there are two buildings, one against each other across a narrow walkway) is traditional building for the center of Rethymnon. The building is mid-15th century and it is magic both in the morning and sexy at night. This is a very romantic place and at the same time it is quiet and relaxing.

Our spacious two-story room was tastefully furnished and always spick and span. We were happy to have Wi-Fi at no extra charge.

A lot of little details make it a casual remarkable, including the exquisite design, modern equipment and furniture.

Breakfast was waiting for us every morning preparred by the chef Dimitrios. "buffet", fresh juice, traditional Greek snacks

Wish to acknowledge the wonderful staff of the hotel, especially the high professionalism of the manager Yiannis, who was very friendly and extremely attentive to all our requests and needs. His attention and individual approach to each of our request, made our holiday memorable. If you need advice and not only concerning Rethymno - just ask Yiannis (by the way hу is from Chania, and can recommend great places there as well)

This hotel can be proud of the quality of care and tinning, which is always given to its guests.

If you want excellent service, comfortable and romatic room and good location this is your place.

Irina and Timur

Room Tip: Rooms are different. You can ask Yiannis to help you with choice

My girlfriend and I stayed here in august 2011 for a week. I can honestly say that this is one of the loveliest places I've stayed. The staff were fantastic and super friendly, the rooms were clean and brilliantly decorated. It's located right in the middle of the Venetian part of Rethymno surrounded by superb old buildings. Some very nice restaurants are located very close (our favourite was Pigadi)
The fortress fortezza is very close and the beach is a 10 minute walk away. The one thing i would advise is to pay the extra for a junior suite as our room was quite small. Baring in mind there are only six rooms! Overall I would definitely stay here again and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We only returned from holiday this morning but felt compelled to let everyone know what a great find this place is! We were celebrating the renewal of our wedding vows and this was a 2nd honeymoon and Yannis was most kind in upgrading our room to make it extra special. The hotel and all the staff, especially Yannis, Angela and Dimiri, were always happy to accomodate any request and the service and attention to detail was always 1st class. The location is perfect for all the local restaurants, beach and trips but although in the centre of town once through the doors the place felt more like an quite spa retreat.

We very much hope to return in the near future.

Room Tip: Room 3 was perfect

It was our honeymoon and we spent the best time we could imagine on the lovely island and a lot of thanks are to the great Rimondi Estate with Yannis, Dimitris and other wonderful people at the hotel.

Since we came to celebrate a wonderful change in our lives, we got a nice upgrade and compliments.

Choosing this hotel, you can expect to receive a very welcome atmosphere, lots of smiles, fantastic rooms, tasty breakfast in the nicest yard and proximity to the best restaurants in the old town.

If you're not sure where to go and what to do, ask anyone at the hotel, they will give you the best recommendations.

Room Tip: Two-story room is very spacious.

We stayed for three nights at the end of our honeymoon. The guy on the desk was really friendly and welcoming. He provided excellent restaurant recommendations; all within a 5 minute walk as the hotel really is in the perfect location. Our room had an arched ceiling with original features and brick work exposed. Authentic feeling with latest amenities; flat screen tv, iPod docking station, wet room shower and of course the courtyard with jacuzzi. The pool are was surrounded by a tropical garden - really nice and relaxing! Breakfast was basic continental buffet style; did it's job but didn't blow my mind! I would definitely stay here again.

The room and the bath are super confortable and an example of architectural design; the pool with low lounge music and soft lights is an oasis of relax and charme in the the centre of Rethymno. Very pleasant place: al the beginning we were planning to stay only two days, but it whas so pleasant that finally we stayed there one week. Yiannis and the staff are friendly and professional. It's the holiday we dreamed, we will come back... Elena Lisa and Arturo Buzzolan
