Rimondi Boutique Hotel
Tucked into the Venetian quarter of Rethymnon, this elegant hotel occupies two historic buildings, each wrapped around a tranquil courtyard with a central swimming pool. Its location, close to the Venetian Fort, the Loggia and the Fountain Rimondi, makes it an excellent base for exploring the city.
The 33 rooms and suites all boast views of the city, the sea or the courtyard. The decor is eclectic, with bold Venetian-inspired patterns in one room and a playful modern light-up headboard in another. You’ll find the history of the Rimondi is evident throughout the property — original Renaissance-era architecture blends with elaborate additions of the 19th and 20th centuries, including Turkish influences.
A Mediterranean menu is available throughout the day and evening in the main restaurant, while the Pool Bar offers a light menu and an array of cocktails. In the wellness area you’ll find a hammam and can indulge in massage and beauty treatments before relaxing on the rooftop sun terrace.

Rooms are divided across two historic buildings and span a wide range of categories. All have a clean, spacious feel with pale neutrals enlivened by bold splashes. You might find yourself in a room with gold-and-cobalt patterns on the linens or a light-up headboard that glows with pink and red roses. All the rooms make the most of natural light, and some offer floor-to-ceiling windows to take advantage of the sea views.
In the heart of Rethymnon’s medieval Venetian quarter, the property is surrounded by quaint streets lined with shops, bars and restaurants. The hotel is located right beside one of the landmarks of the town, the Rimondi Fountain. Rethymnon’s beach is a 20-minute walk away, and longer, quieter beaches can be found a short drive away.
