Hotel Report

Why Stay At Palazzo Rimondi

This 20-room boutique hotel is set in a Renaissance palazzo in Crete's medieval town of Rethymno, known for its winding streets and Venetian fortress.

The Scoop

In the historic center of Rethymno, one of Crete's most picturesque towns, Palazzo Rimondi, set in a 15th-century palace, is a seamless mix of old and new. Public spaces are classic and grand, though modern studios and suites have double-height ceilings, white-on-white beds, and full-service kitchenettes. Many rooms overlook the small pool in the hotel's pebble-cobbled courtyard, or one that enjoys a view onto the medieval tangle of pedestrian alleys leading to the city's Venetian Fortezza, home to Rethymno's summer Renaissance Festival. Hungry? The nearby Xanthoudidou Street is packed with Greek restaurants, and the harbor, just a 10-minute stroll away, is lined with seafood restaurants.

Insider Tips

Forgo the hotel's tiny breakfast room; instead, bring your coffee and croissants to the shaded courtyard by the pool or up to the sun-drenched roof terrace.

The hotel's location, in a quiet pedestrian zone, is lovely—unless you arrive by car. The closest parking is blocks away on Melissinou Street; ask to have staffers pick up your luggage.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Chania Ioannis Daskalogiannis Airport (CHQ) which is approximately 42 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 90 minutes of travel time.

Hotel Report From the editors of: Travel+Leisure

Why We Love Crete

Rethymno is perhaps the most postcard-perfect city on Greece's largest island, with sandy beaches and a historic center that's largely free of modern development.

Don't Miss

Where to Shop: On the island, Avli Raw Materials sells some of the best Greek wines, spices, and local treats—such as mylelia sheep or goat cheese and Cretan herbs—and extra virgin olive oils.

Best Beach: Board a replica pirate ship with Dolphin Cruises (based in the Venetian Harbor) for a coastal cruise past sea caves to the secluded beaches of Panormo, Bali, or Marathi.

Must-See Museum: Rethymno's small but engaging Historical and Folk Art Museum gives a peek into traditional Cretan life and customs; the exhibits are set in a restored 17th-century Venetian mansion.
28 Vernàrdhou St.

Where to Eat: For an affordable and authentic Cretan meal, try To Pigadi for traditional dishes (lamb with feta, garlic, and tomato) and items that are more creative (a sautèed chicken fillet with orange and chocolate sauce). Sit on the dining terrace, next to a 16th-century well.
