          Excellent location - 2 minutes' walk from the centre of town.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          We had a lovely room overlooking the courtyard, swimming pool and interesting old buildings on the far side. The swimming pool is excellent.

          The breakfast buffet is okay but the lack of real fruit juice, poor choice of fresh fruit and mediocre coffee was a bit disappointing.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Renovated cozy hotel with excellent location. Good own parking. Despite on some minuses below very good general impression.

          Triple is not real triple. It's two beds plus small temporary bad. After long discussion on reception they gave us real triple. The same small room but with 3 normal bed. Breakfast/bar lady always seems unsatisfied and not friendly. Slow slow Internet . Better to use your iPad / laptop on reception zone. No curtains in shower. That's why everywhere water after taking shower.

          Hoewel het hotel pal aan het toeristische stadsgedeelte grenst, genoten wij vooral van de rust binnen de muren.

          Sa situation dans la vieille ville et le parking aisé

          The location is central to everything...the fortress, the venetian harbor and all the restaurants and shops

          The staff was fantastic and the facilities are beautiful after just recently being remodeled.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Nice location, in the center of Rethymno. Parking is a luxury!

        • Single
          8.2

          The staff at the Fortezza Hotel is very nice and eager to assist and help their guests. The room was clean and everything was new and fresh. The location, in the old town of Rethymnon, is exellent, The pool area is so nice and clean. All in all a very relaxing and pleasent place to stay!

          Not much to complain about, but I would really apriciate a small refridgerator in the room. The bed was also very hard, but then all beds in Crete seems to be like that. The only thing I did not appriciate is that I got a smokeing room even if I asked for a non smokeing room.

          9.0

          We have just stayed at the hotel and had a lovely time. It is ideally located within the old town of Rethimnon, the staff were very friendly and everything was so clean, tidy and well organised. We will be visiting again next year!

          The only things that could be improved would be a fridge in the room and maybe a kettle.

        • Older travelers

          Beautiful garden with pool and the location near the old city.

          The breakfast. Egg and juice wasn´t included and no hot food like bacon and sausages.

          Location - it was located in the heart of the Old Town

          Location, breakfast, view, style of rooms.

          A little bit pricey. But I guess for the location ok.

          Perfect location in the heart of Rethymno, spotless clean comfortable room, exceptionally helpful and efficient staff at the hotel.

          If you want a no-smoking room, make sure you do book a no-smoking room, otherwise the first night you will smell cigarette smoke
