Palazzo Rimondi

21 Xanthoudidou St.
Crete, Greece
TEL: 30-28310-51289

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. Choose a room that overlooks the small pool in the hotel’s pebble-cobbled courtyard, or one that looks 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.

Room to Book:

Deluxe rooms—some of which overlook the old town rather than the pool—are almost twice as large as standard doubles, with enough space to sleep four travelers.

Insider Tip:

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.
