A beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of the old town, authentic and well appointed. Gorgeous courtyard restaurant that felt a very special place to eat, food was excellent and the service spot on. We were made welcome in all areas, the Greeks are so friendly and the hospitality is genuine. Our room was pleasant enough with everything you needed and most importantly a very comfortable bed.

Location was perfect in the centre of the old town and a short walk to everywhere. Our room, the champagne suite, was large, well equipped and very nicely decorated with a small balcony (no view). There was a healthy flight of stairs to negotiate (although our luggage was delivered to the room) and climbing in and out of the jacuzzi tub to access the shower was a challenge. What sets this hotel apart is the staff – everyone from reception, restaurant, housekeeping were so kind , helpful and eager to please we were sorry to leave. We ate at both restaurants, the first night with no reservation they still managed to squeeze us in; and both meals were fabulous. Breakfast in the outdoor garden was great – one of the best breakfasts we have experienced anywhere- everything served at the table with a choice of egg dishes and coffees. Highly recommended, we would have stayed longer had we known what a great spot this is.

What a beautiful and historic boutique hotel situated in the middle of the old town of Rethymno, where we stayed for 3 nights on our 2-week honeymoon around Greece. It was our favorite stop, where we were sad to leave and wishing we had stayed longer. We stayed in Chania as well, and although very nice, we preferred the smaller of the two Venetian port cities. The reason we enjoyed our stay so much was the genuine staff - we felt so accommodated and cared for the entire time. We ran into some challenges on our journey from Hereklion, so arrived quite late, tired, and hungry on our first night, but Stella welcomed us with so much joy and quickly turned that around. She had prepared something special in our room for our honeymoon and then offered us welcome drinks and snacks at the adjoining cocktail bar. Everyone else that we met was just as friendly - Stelios, Nikos, the restaurant staff - you can tell that they all work very well together and enjoy each others company. Unsurprisingly, the Avli Restaurant is top notch. Each morning we were amazed at the quality and ambiance of breakfast in the garden, which was included in our stay. We also participated in a cooking class / olive oil sampling with head chef Vasilis, which was followed by a 7-course plus dinner. We learned about Cretan food, history, and culture and left absolutely stuffed. It was the most special part of our entire 2-week trip. They even gave my wife birthday cakes on two separate occasions. Thank you Avli for making our stay so wonderful! We hope to return one day! We wish you all the best.

Enjoyed our stay at Alvi. We received a great welcome with a drink and some lovely food while we completed the necessary paperwork. Our bags were in the room when we were ready. The only reason there isn't a 'five' is The Red Room was comfortable but there was an ancient (not Venetian) jacuzzi bath tub which was in the main room and was pretty horrible to shower in. The washbasin was vast and even cleaning teeth was difficult. Perhaps ready for updating and installing a decent shower in an enclosed bathroom? The toilet at least was private but the ventilation fan transferred noise for the bar to the room! Breakfast was amazing. So excellent and not so good. The associated restaurants are very special.

This hidden gem within the quaint and lively old town promises a stay with cherished feelings and memories of Rethymno to take home with you. Our experience, enhanced by the exceptional hospitality and thoughtfully appointed, unique, clean, and spacious rooms, truly made the difference in our stay- elevating it from what we would expect, to what was remarkably extraordinary. What more can I say here other than our stay at the Avli was special and one of a kind!

This hotel was hands down one of the best deals I've ever gotten in terms of quality for the price. The check in process was stellar: we were greeted by the manager Nikos, who was so kind and hospitable, and he immediately welcomed us to sit in the charming courtyard, having his staff bring us wine and snacks while we filled out the check-in paperwork. And by the way, this is Crete, so the snacks were absolutely delicious! Nikos also gave us recommendations regarding dining and shopping, with honest advice about where to shop to avoid tourist prices. We splurged and had dinner (with wine pairing) at the hotel restaurant and it was a very nice, romantic and memorable meal. Our room was very comfortable and quiet, with tons of character, as the building dates back to the Venetian times. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Rethymno.

What a lovely week spent in the red suite in Avli boutique hotel. Decor authentic and room spacious. Our only minor issues were somewhere to hang wet swim suits as no balcony and toilet within the room was not very private but the over all experience made up for this. Breakfast was served every morning within beautiful courtyard garden and was varied and delicious in the traditional Greek style with fresh ingredients. Meals in both restaurants were exceptional. Chef is the same for both restaurants and is really passionate and talented. Staff all attentive and friendly and made us very welcome. Stella and Dina looked after us so well. We made use off the roof top jacuzzi a few times and enjoyed the cocktails. Would recommend Avli especially for couples but families with children also stayed.

We loved our stay at AVLI Apartments. The room we booked was lovely, clean and had everything we needed. The reception staff were very helpful with arranging a car service to pick us up from the airport, making dinner reservations and suggestions on what to do during our stay. The daily breakfast was amazing. The staff arranged for us to receive breakfast on a morning that we had an early excursion, which did not allow us to have breakfast in the restaurant. We had dinner twice at one of the hotel restaurants, which was also amazing, both food and service. I can't say enough about our stay!

Finally arrived after originally booking to visit in June 2020 - the hotel didn’t hesitate in allowing us to rearrange our trip. We would recommend the hotel to anyone as it was absolutely perfect. Our spacious room, the amazing breakfasts, great restaurants and the best most helpful, kindest staff ever - we couldn’t fault anything. A beautiful hotel in a beautiful town and we can’t wait to visit again.
