We've choose Hotel Fortezza cause we wanted a small scale hotel with enough to do around... and we've got it. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops around. Also an old fortress which is like a 5 min walk away. The street view is beautiful. The entire area around the hotel is closed for cars. The small alleys...

Over the past 8 years we have been staying at this hotel 6 times, sometimes as a couple, sometimes as a family, but every time satisfied. Rooms are big enough, for a stay where the surrounding are the most important, the hotel is clean an modern everywhere you look. On top of that there is a parking space right in...

This is a four story hotel built around a courtyard with a swimming pool. The hotel is an ideal position in the old town, near the harbor, with easy car access and free parking available on the street. The rooms are either facing the street or the courtyard, the latter being quieter. The rooms are basic but clean and the...

Stayed at this hotel for 10 days in September to celebrate our wedding anniversary.This hotel is very clean and staff are lovely. Breakfast had a good selection such as fruit, yogurts, cereals etc. What I noticed most was how peaceful the hotel actually was considering it is almost in the centre of the old town. We stayed in room 214....

This is a luxurious hotel in the centre of the old town of Rethymno. That does make getting to it by car an adventure, but a worthwhile one. And when you make it, the Fortezza car park is directly opposite. (This is referred to by the hotel as "on-site", which is a but if a liberty, but not one I'll...

A Nice hotel in a very central location. The rooms are fine, the pool area might need a renovation though. The staff is very nice And professional. The breakfast is a bit basic. It could have more fresh fruits and squeezed orange juices. A good choice though at a good price.

Updated amenities, a nice refuge from the heat and crowds, very friendly and helpful staff. Located next to lots of restaurants and shopping and a 15 minute walk from the town beach. Yummy buffet breakfast. We would go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend for anyone.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel this July (2016) together with friends. We really enjoyed our stay here. We had a clean room, an då it was cleaned every day.

We arrived @Fortezza on the 24th of July 2016 and we did not have many options where to stay so we just asked randomly. The hotel is well placed in Rethimnos and anywhere you go you always end up at the street of the hotel. We payed 99euros for a standard room (breakfast included). The room was crystal clean (props...
