If you want to stay close to commercial areas, numerous museums, restaurants, cafes, and in the evening have the opportunity to go to one of the nightclubs of Rethymnon, then you should book a room at Pepi Boutique Hotel (3 stars). The historic building of the oldest European state primary school of the 20th century, where boys and girls studied, is now private property.
After the acquisition, a deserted ill-kept building with an overgrown garden remained intact for a short time. All forces were thrown at the repair and creation of Pepi Boutique Hotel, which was first opened for visitors in 1986. The year 2009 was a beginning of a new era – the younger generation had performed a reconstruction having filled the hotel building with new elements, while preserving its historical past.
Now a boutique hotel accepts adults only. In total, there are 13 rooms, 3 luxury rooms and 2 suites. The whole area is immersed in gorgeous garden, in which there is an open-air swimming pool.
Some rooms of the boutique hotel are equipped with a fully furnished kitchen with refrigerator, espresso machine and electronic safe deposit box. All rooms have a TV, built-in air conditioner, a bathroom with all the necessary attributes for ensuring the comfort of its visitors.
