We parked in the lot by the harbor and walked in with a carryon bag since we were staying only one night. We were greeted and taken to the restaurant for the paperwork and a welcome drink. We had a large, quiet, nicely decorated room with comfortable furniture and bed, nice linens, and big towels. The refrigerator held complimentary water. Breakfast was served in a garden and there were lots of choices.

Based in the heart of the old town, we picked individual apartment style acommodation as it was our first trip abroad since covid restrictions lifted and where we would not feel under any pressure. This was the perfect choice. Breakfast each day was excellent quality with standard breads, juices and coffee as well as yoghurt with honey and fruit and a choice of egg dishes suitable for both meat eaters and vegetarians. We also dined in the restaurant two evenings and it's number one rating is entirely justified. All of the staff really looked after us and were attentive to every detail. They organised a personal trip up to Arkadi Monastery for us upon request and also printed for us all of our paperwork that we had to provide for our homeward travel arrangements. The old town itself is delightful and compact with short walking distance to the sea front, Venetian Port and the Fortezza. Day trips to Knossos also available from the town.

My husband and I recently spent some time in Crete as part of a Greek holiday. I had read recommendations to spend at least one night in Rethymnon and I am very glad we did, and glad I chose Avli Lounge Apartments. We enjoyed a wonderful night in this beautifully decorated hotel in the old part of town - very charming and atmospheric. The staff were so helpful and friendly and we enjoyed an amazing breakfast in the pretty courtyard. We also had dinner at the informal Raki Ba Raki which was a fun place to eat and spend an evening. I would highly recommend Avli to anyone visiting charming old Rethymnon.

Many good things to say about Avli, from the taxi pickup at the airport they arranged which was a high quality car, to the excellent staff and service, cleanliness and beautiful location and room towards the quieter back of the building on the first floor with roof top terrace and jacuzzi which was stunning. Room was spacious with character furnishings, a large separate bathroom with jacuzzi bath and a small balcony which unfortunately did not have a view and there was not a lot of natural light. Bed was huge and comfortable. Breakfast was atmospheric in Avli’s beautiful courtyard garden, although it was the same Cretan breakfast everyday which does not cater for all tastes and could be more variety of choice. It is a historic building and as such there is some noise you hear from the common areas and apartment above which could be improved. We had a nice stay, and some great moments in lovely rethymnon.

You can read the full review and see a short movie about Avli Lounge Apartments and its restaurant on the only blog for reviews and ratings refracted through the 5D Sensograph of the 5 human senses placescases with com. See .... …. Beautiful old building, very dignified, with atmosphere and artistry. From the front wooden door, you can see how its handles are decorated - with colorful marbles. See in the video below; …. The street on which the hotel is located is no less remarkable. Narrow, on both sides there are many artisan shops that dilute the heat of it with a pleasant coolness from their air conditioners. ............ …. Huge rooms, apartments, which can comfortably accommodate a family of 4. The bathroom is made of marble, the bathtub is a jacuzzi; …. The courtyard where the breakfast takes place, i.e. this is the Avli restaurant itself, which is one of the few fine dining restaurants in Rethymno, is very beautiful, with artistic applications and motifs. ............ …. It is possible in the morning on the narrow streets of the old town to see two people on scooters riding next to each other and talking, despite the loud flickering of their vehicles. Feel …. Avli gives you a feeling of complete comfort - you don't miss anything! …. Great service - the young people from the reception Stelios and Nikos are very responsive and polite. .......... …. A pleasant shade under the lime tree in the courtyard of the restaurant, under which we ate slowly and casually a traditional Cretan breakfast; …. The hotel uses the parking lot of Hotel Fortezza and has a discount for its guests, but still prepare 10 euros a day for it. ........... …. The towels in the bathroom are the biggest I've ever received in a hotel and are super soft. Again, I am referring to the feeling of complete comfort, so that you don't miss anything; …. There is WiFi, it is possible to interrupt, but I personally had 1-2 meetings online without a problem; …. 2 one-liter bottles of complimentary water for the guests are left in the room every day. In the beginning there is also a complimentary espresso, tea and a small bottle of tsikudia! ......... Hear …. …. Very nice music at breakfast, accompanied by crescendo of cicadas In the evening, too- a little jazz, a little contemporary, but very good quality, I heard my favorite Michael Kiwanuka; …. The ringing of the bells of the surrounding churches, and on Sundays the singing of the priest is heard outside the church. ............ Smell .... …. Gorgeous aroma of natural honey and homemade raspberry jam, which they give for breakfast with the traditional for the island bread and pasta. Taste .... …. Breakfast is exceptional – of high quality local products, shows the traditions of Cretan cuisine. You have the opportunity to choose the protein in it - the eggs in whatever shape you like best. All variants are rather typical for the cuisine of the island............ … Speaking of goat butter, Anthogalo is straightforward culinary poetry - soft, ethereal, with a slight hint of sour cream, a unique thing! You have the pleasure to spread on the fresh bread every morning at the breakfast; … The small bruschettas, again traditional for the area, called Dakos, with the finely chopped, flavored tomatoes and something like ricotta, again made of goat cheese, became a favorite of the children immediately; .............. …. It is also worth visiting the restaurant for dinner. There are tasting menus, but you can combine as you see fit. I recommend trying different things traditional for the island, such as goat meat. It cooks great, super tender, nicely fragrant; …. Be sure to combine with local wine. There are several remarkable varieties. Here we found a very different wine, rose Grifos, aged in amphorae for 5 years, with mineral aroma, hints of sulfur, milkiness and at the same time jam sweetness. You will see it in the movie; …. Be sure to try the chocolate dessert, which has different textures You can read the full review and see a short movie about Avli Lounge Apartments and its restaurant on the only blog for reviews and ratings refracted through the 5D Sensograph of the 5 human senses placescases with com.
