This the second time we have stayed in the apartments and it is testament to the service from Yannis,as we have never stayed anywhere more than once before. The apartments were very clean, rooms cleaned and towels changed daily, and the fridge was full of presents such as fruit and wine. Yannis is really helpful, recommended places to visit and... More

Stayed for a week in October/November. Yannis is the best host ever - kind, generous and knowlegable. Daily gifts of wine and fruit and souvenirs for the family back home. Building/rooms full of character and very well equipped. Great location with easy access to both the old town and beach. We accidently left some clothing and Yannis insisted on posting... More

We chose this place randomly for a short stay in Rethymno, but we didn't expect to be so lucky. Two days spent at the beautiful Afroditi, the elegantly refurbished ex French embassy, were the highlight of a special holiday. Yannis, the owner, is the best host you could possibly meet, genuinely friendly, resourceful and happy to help in any situation.... More

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
