As all reviews highlight, Yannis is an exceptional host. He met us from the shuttle bus and walked the short distance with us to the hotel. This was very welcome as the hotel is tucked away in one of the side streets in the old town. Our room was on the first floor, spacious and very clean. There was fruit,... More

The difference between real hospitality and fake smiles is huge. Yannis is the most considerate host we've met in the hundreds of hotels we've been to. The Afroditi is the old French embassy, which has been given a top to bottom make-over by Yannis. The location is perfect, right in the middle of the old town, yet without street noise.... More

We stayed here during a trip to a few different Greek islands. Yannis was one of the most hospitable owners we have ever stayed with. He absolutely went out of his way to welcome us, gave us fruit and wine on arrival and was so helpful throughout, offering a room upgrade and lots of information about the town and restaurants....

This hotel was perfect and the owner Yannis was the nicest gentleman you could ever meet in the service industry. On our first night we were a bit lost in transit and he was in the village square to meet us from our taxi at 1 am. It was like seeing a long lost relative. The rooms were very comfortable... More

The hotel is in a great location close to the shops, old town and harbour, with plenty of bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk. The rooms were lovely, lots of character and spotlessly clean. There was everything you needed-free reliable wifi, A/C, cooker, washing machine, juicer, coffee maker, toaster, kettle, hair dryer, mosquito plug ins, tea, coffee, herbs... More

My husband and I are travelling for 9 weeks and we have been staying in a lot of hotels. This one is right up there in terms of value for money and a really great experience. Perfectly located in the Old Town of Rethymno, Crete, with a host who goes a very long way out of his way to ensure... More

The best in class! We had unforgettable 2 night stay at Yannis place in September. It was truly exceptional experience in many ways. He is Professor of Hospitality (φιλοξενία in Greek). Not only he treated us as his close friends, but also provided us with many extras. We learned a lot from him about the place, the town, the country... More

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The hotel is perfectly situated in the old town just a few mins walk from bars, restaurants, fortezza, harbour and 5 mins walk to a sandy beach. The owner Yiannis and his wife are so welcoming and Yiannis speaks very good English. After a very stressful few months this... More

From start to finish , unfortunately only one night , Yannis made our stay a delight. The room was great and service impeccable, all for a very reasonable price. Generous and helpful, Yannis could not do enough to make our stay more memorable . We are a family of 4 and the split level room was terrific. Arriving very late... More
