“What an absolute gem!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We've recently returned from a 10 day break staying at this hotel and can only endorse what many people have written. The hotel is an absolute gem!
It's nicely situated in Rethymno old town and the staff are incredible, they are so helpful and welcoming. Rooms are of a very high standard and a nice breakfast to start the day.
We didn't realise that it's in the Sunday Times top 20 boutique hotels in Greece and it's easy to understand why.
Would we recommend and return? Absolutely!
One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.

We spent some days at this small wonderful hotel in 2012, and came back this year for a whole week. This is the most cute, romantic little hotel in Rethymno, and to be frank parts of me do not want to talk about it, because then others will find out too! Beautiful rooms, wonderful breakfast and the most charming ladies running the place and working there. The hotel is located in the middle of the old town. Some walking to do to get to the beach (especially this year, since I had an injury in my foot and was walking with crutches), but we don't mind. Love everything about it, and hope to be able to come back for a few days next year!

We were so pleased to be able to walk from the bus station and arrive arrive to our beautiful honeymoon suite. The staff was warm and welcoming and everything was beautiful. It was situated in the beautiful old part of town and the walk to restaurants was enjoyable through the old narrow streets. We have been thinking about returning ever sine we left.

A beutiful place in the old town with an extraordinary friendly, helpful and competent straff of young women.
In Rethymnon we also stayed one night in another, more expensive hotel, also with an old charm, but without a straff and athmosfere comparabel to that at Casa vitae.

It was a wonderful stay all around. When we arrived they asked to take our bags, always being wary we were hesitant but they actually wanted to help and would not accept a tip! When we came to the room it exceptionally clean and well appointed, the staff took the time to show us around and gave us number to call at anytime for anything. The breakfast was a highlight, served in the courtyard by friendly and caring staff.
I can't say enough about the level of service of the staff. It was exceptional! Great value for the money.

Room Tip: We were moved to another room both were excellent but different in their own way.

This was our first time on Crete and with the Casa Vitae we selected the perfect habitat for this first contact.
During the five days of our stay we were overwhelmed with familiarity and kindness, very personally and friendly service, a beautiful location (room and the breakfast-location in the inner yard) and the feeling to have a good homebase for our trips in the circumference of Rethymno, from the beginning till our departure.
We thank all the people from this extraordinary little place for making the beginning of our holidays such a harmonic experience and for providing us a service beyond the usual and expected.
If we ever will come back to Crete, this hotel for sure will be a part of our planning.
