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.

Avli has the perfect location in Old Town. The garden breakfast area is enchanting. The food is amazing!!! We have been staying there over the past 9 years and it never disappoints. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant is quality. There classic Cretan Food is exceptional. Highly recommend Avli.

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.

The hotel was kind enough to let us rearrange our booking from 2020 which was super customer service when other hotels weren’t as helpful. Hotel is centrally located and easily accessed from the port car park within 5 minutes. Breakfast was excellent and the air conditioning very good. Room was as advertised.

We stayed for a week (7th - 14th May 2022) and were lucky enough to be upgraded to the penthouse apartment (from the 'Blue room'). Avli is a delightful little hotel, we really enjoyed the stay, and the penthouse is very nice. Excellent breakfast and perfectly situated in the old town.

After eating at the Avli restaurant last August, when I looked to visit Rethymno this month with my mum and saw they had rooms with excellent reviews I knew I had to book based on how exquisite my experience was in their restaurant. Needless to say, it lived up and exceeded expectations. On arrival, we had to wait a small while but they took us to the courtyard garden for complimentary drinks and meze- amazing! When we then checked in, we were upgraded to suite with balcony and roof terrace- spectacular! Rooms have traditional Cretan features however clean fresh fun and modern. Beautifully done. Dinner in the restaurant again was a must and just as good as last time, breakfast was on par too- best hotel breakfast I have had! The location is perfect, parking is easy in the fortezza Carpark only €10 for 24 hours. Staff all so wonderfully friendly. It’s my little haven in the middle of a beautiful town. I will try to visit once a year!
