We had a very good stay. The staff were very friendly, helpful. The room and bathroom were very clean. Nice ambiance. Our room had a view of the garden and it is well decorated. Breakfast was good, freshly made orange juice, breads and sweets. You can also ask f8r eggs and bacon to be prepared. We stayed for five happy days and we recommend the room narcissus.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled as a couple

When I arrived at the hotel, I had been travelling since very early morning and was happy to be greeted by such a warm welcome. I was then given a table in the gorgeous courtyard, a complimentary drink, and relaxed whilst my suitcase was taken to my room. My room was luxuriously decorated, and contained a Jacuzzi bath! Everything was finished to a high standard.
Later when I went to explore the surroundings, the hotel staff were very helpful in supplying me with maps and information of the many sights and excursions available on Crete and to the surrounding Islands, although to be honest I did feel as though there may have been an ulterior reason behind the suggestions of restaurants for the evening as those suggested were not the best.
Breakfast was wonderful. Freshly brewed coffee, fresh orange juice, individually served continental and cooked breakfast, and fresh fruit. The perfect start to an action filled day! I also ate lunch at the hotel on a couple of occasions, and the salad was fresh and the feta cheese divine.
I ordered an early breakfast one morning as an excursion started early, and everything was brought to my room the evening before. This was not a problem as I had a fridge and a hospitality tray, and made the early morning bearable!
I would certainly have no qualms about staying at this hotel again. It's idyllic location, beautiful surroundings, and excellent service made it a home away from home.
Thank you Casa Vitae, may your establishment grow from strength to strength!

Our Casa Vitae Hotel visit was one to remember,from before our arrival the girls were very helpfull and kind. We stayed for two nights and because we attended a wedding on the second night they extended the breakfast time till noon (thank you). The rooms were very spacy and clean with everything we needed inside,the location is a big plus because even though you are in the center of Rethimnon the hotel is very quiet. I would definetly stay there again.

We had a very enjoyable stay in Casa Vitae in early January. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, inside the old town and in proximity with the best parts of Rethymnon. The superior double room was nicely decorated and comfortable. The only drawback was that the heating in the room was provided through air conditioning, which is not to our liking. But that was a minor issue, compared to the overall nice experience.

My room (a superior double) was very nice, and the staff was fantastic, very friendly and helpful; the location is perfect right in the middle of the old town but a fairly quiet street. Rethymnon is wonderful in the off-season, and the Casa Vitae was the perfect place to stay.

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of September 2013 as part of a trip travelling around Crete. We felt instantly at home, all the girls are lovely and can't do enough for you.

Our room, which was a junior suite, was excellent value with lovely original features and a very comfy bed. The jacuzzi bath was a little noisy (we were warned), but the shower was high pressure and warm :)

Breakfast was excellent, the honey and yogurt was quintessentially Greek, and a great start to the day. The hotel is in a lovely spot, with a courtyard covered in flowers for breakfast. We also had lunch at the hotel one day, the salads were huge and very reasonably priced. As other reviewers have mentioned, when we traveled to Samaria they booked it for us and gave us a packed lunch at no additional cost.

All the ladies that work there are a credit to the hotel. They made our first visit to Crete so much better by answering all our questions honestly and helpfully, and giving us lots of tips about the best places to visit. They even helped us understand the olive oil classification system!

Overall, this was one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in and we wouldn't hesitate to go back again (and trust me... we will).

This hotel was amazing. Staff cannot do enough for you and accommodations are terrific. Upon arrival you are given a complimentary drink and asked to have a seat in the courtyard and relax for a few minutes while they prepare for you. Your luggage is taken up to your room and then they come for you and walk you through everything. As for breakfast, there is so much food and the morning we were leaving, we were leaving before breakfast. Although we couldn't have hot food, the evening before they brought up everything for breakfast and put in refrigerator along with more coffee and tea.

My friend tore a strap off her carry-on bag and they assisted us in finding a shoe repair place who fixed it while we waited for hardly any cost.

This place was too touristy for us to spend too many days but the facilities could not be beat. Also took the on/off bus tour which took you out of city which was certainly worth the low cost

Room Tip: Some rooms have a terrace while others do not. Terrace is nice but don't pass up this hotel if...
