“Wonderful, warm and unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2011

This wonderful place is run by a lovely couple- Katerina and Vagelis. Both of them were extremely helpful, warm and accommodating. I came with my husband and parents and we loved the place. The rooms are done in a traditional style but with all the modern amenities. Each room is done somewhat differently. We stayed in a cave style room with an old well which was very cool . Everything is very clean and well maintained, internet is for free and the location is excellent. It is located in the old city in Rethymno and is just wonderful to walk around. There are lovely restaurants, bars and coffee shops all around. When you reach Casa you feel like you have gone back in time. Everything about Casa dei Delfini was fabulous – the rooms, the location and the wonderful owners. I would definitely recommend it to everyone who wants a nice relaxing stay in Crete.

We found the Casa dei Delfini by accident years ago when wandering around the old town in Rethymnon. It is a beautifully renovated 16th century Venetian -Turkish town house. Once inside the large double doors which front directly onto the narrow street, you enter a small courtyard where Katerina or Vangelis, the owners, will welcome you. They live nearby and are always on hand to give friendly advice.
The house is divided into 4 flats and a maisonette on the upper floor. For a really amazing room ask for no 4 - it has an en suite bathroom which was originally a turkish hamam. The building is full of interesting features: a water jar embedded in the wall, the large arch of an oven, the huge wooden beams in the ceiling, original stone walls.
The area is quiet - apart from the odd motor bike - because Nikeforos Phokas street, which was the original Venetian main street, is for pedestrians only (except the odd motor bike does disturb the peace from time to time).
The house is very close to the centre of the old town with shops, restaurants, the harbour and the beach within very close range. No parking outside the hotel, since most of the old town is a car free zone,but plenty of space in the streets nearby.
Lots of good restaurants in the neighbourhood. We would especially recommend the Taverna Vassalos, just round the corner in Epimenidhou Street.

We go back to the Casa dei Delfini every year in May. Next year we're splashing out and staying in the luxurious maisonette on the top floor.

Beautiful rooms, old Turkish-Latin residence, fully refurbished, with respect to the architectural tradition of Rethymnon. We were living in Studio 3, our bathroom was an old hamam, a little small but convenient. In a quiet road, in the old town of Rethymnon, Katerina will offer you the hellenic hospitality with the best way.The prices are quite logical, the service is good, wifi internet is offered for free.

The room we stayed included bathroom, air conditioning, kitchenette with small refrigerator, cable tv.

Just be aware that you have to park your car about 200 metres away fron the hotel, and carry your baggages to the hotel. The admitance to the Old town is forbidden to the cars after 11 in the morning.
