We stayed here in March of 2014 and the experience was as perfect as you can get. The staff - every one of them - were warm, accommodating, and efficient - we could not have asked for more. Our room was splendid. The food & wine was wonderful! Our favorite meal every day was breakfast in the courtyard. The setting... More

We only wish we could've stayed longer. This is a beautiful boutique hotel in the old town area of Rethymnon, with incredibly tasteful, comfortable, and luxurious rooms, the best food we had in Greece, and amazingly friendly and helpful people. For those who love wine, you'll find a fantastic cellar and knowledgeable staff - this is important in Greece where... More

We stayed here two years ago and it was a fantastic experience. We only stayed one night but vowed to return the following year. When we came to Crete last year we contacted The Alvi by email but had no reply. We phoned later and they had received the email. We were assured that they would get back to us... More

Welcome to the vision and style of Katerina Xekalou. If you have not read her introduction to Avli on the website please do. Your experience here will truly leave you with warmth. We arrived on a quiet Saturday early evening and were greeted by the manager with samples of cheeses and wines. His demeanor projects inviting, similar to the feeling... More

This is one of the most memorable hotels I have ever stayed in. We had a bit of confusion finding the reception due the maze of narrow streets, but were eventually greeted warmly and courteously by the duty manager. Then we were led to the beautiful courtyard for a complimentary 'welcome' drink. Our first impression was very good and we... More

We arrived late into Rethymno, tired and frustrated. This ended the moment we stepped into Avli. They checked us in to an amazing 500 year old room - stone walls, 10 foot high ceilings, really quite spectacular. The service for our stay was always great. They helped us with a car rental, with day itineraries, basically any question that we... More

Our stay here was for only one night since we were in transit to Chania. Upon our arrival, at reception, Jonny, provided us with a first-class welcome with wine and snack in the courtyard of their charming restaurant. Our room, (the white room?), was very large, well decorated and very comfortable. The room was very clean, but I think the... More

Strange title perhaps, but I never give 100% marks on the basis of improvement however slight should be encouraged, That said we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Avli and it is well deserving of a great review. The greeting was warm and friendly, The room was clean ,tastefully furnished and decorated and practical. The bathroom whilst narrow had a... More

This charming and affordable historical bldg hotel is well located in the heart of Rethymno - walking distance to all attractions and a beach...is has a great adjacent restaurant and super nice management! The only downside is that the room can be noisy in the evening as it is one floor above street restaurants.

Clean, friendly, classy, different. The garden is so beautiful and the food is first rate. The rooms are full of character. We had a lovely stay. However, some rooms are quieter than others. We will return.
