This is a beautiful boutique hotel conveniently located close to everywhere you'd want to go in Rethymno. The rooms were lovely and my friends' room had an outside patio on the top floor where we could enjoy each other's company and some good Greek wine! The restaurants at this hotel were steps from our rooms and were absolutely amazing. We received a lovely welcome drink and hors d'oeuvres while our luggage was taken to the room. We were leaving one day prior to the scheduled breakfast hour and the staff went above and beyond and made us breakfast early so we could make our tour on time. We checked out early on our last day there and they were kind enough to bring trays the night before our check out for our breakfast in the morning. ALL of the staff are super friendly and accommodating!!! Thanks Avli!!

Avli Lounge is a charming, small, boutique hotel situated on a narrow pedestrian way in the heart of the old city. We enjoyed our stay, with a few quibbles. One highlight was the amazing breakfast in the beautiful, leafy Avli restaurant inside a courtyard. Our particular room - a junior suite -- was in a different building around the corner. The room was very nice, spacious and had a very comfy bed and huge and tastefully done bathroom. But the room felt a little dated, the sitting room furniture was uncomfortable and the room didn't have much natural light or fresh air. Also the a/c unit didn't work very well. On the plus side it was very quiet -- couldn't hear anything from the noisy, late-night Irish pub next door! I have read complaints from others about that issue. Staff was helpful and re-arranged our reservations at the Avli restaurant. Discount parking a few blocks away worked well. Might also look at nearby Rimondi Boutique Hotel which also looked nice from the outside.

Without a doubt, this was one of the best hotel accommodation experiences we have had. We knew that our booking included a free drink each, which usually means a beer or house wine. On arrival, we were shown into their beautiful fine-dining restaurant while our bags were carried up to our upgraded suite. Cold water arrived followed by any drink we chose. Along with the drinks, a platter of fresh local vegetables, meat and cheeses - just great hospitality. The room was beautiful with a private rooftop terrace. The breakfast was just so good - an array of local dishes, yoghurt and fruit, followed by eggs cooked in a range of serving options.

Beautiful boutique rooms. We stayed 1 night but would have loved to stay longer. We were upgraded to a junior suite, which was beautiful! The staff were so helpful and couldn’t do enough to help you. The breakfast was delicious and used local ingredients and produce.

I had a great stay during my business trip , the rooms and the breakfast were amazing, but what’s making that place unique is definitely the staff. Make sure to eat in both of the restaurants , as the fine dining one is something very rare in town and the casual one is less fancy but very authentic! I will come back soon!

In many respects, this is a nice hotel. The room was large, comfortable bed, good breakfast, and very conveniently located. However, a number of the rooms overlook a street. It is traffic free, so there is no problem with traffic noise. But there is an 'Irish' pub next door, with outside seating. Needless to say some of the clientele were sat outside, talking loudly, singing, laughing loudly. On our last night, they were there until 4am. When we checked out, we told the receptionist about the issue. 'Oh yes, we have been complaining to the landlord for some months about this' we were told. So the hotel knew about the problem, yet took the booking and put us into this room knowing full well that we would be disturbed. For a hotel in this price bracket, that is frankly unacceptable. So we would definitely not recommend this hotel.

Dear UKtraveller33 Thank you for choosing to stay with us. It is a great honour to host you. Avli is indeed a great hotel with many advantages such as the attention to detail, the attentive service and the warm welcome, the beautiful surroundings. The rooms, breakfast and meals are among the best in Greece. We are delighted to read that you have experienced the same in terms of hotel excellence. It is a pity that you did not inform us about the noise, either at the reception or at the breakfast time. Had you informed us in time, rather than at the time of your departure, we could have done much more, such as changing your room and contacting the pub owner about the noise. We did this a few months ago and there has been no inconvenience since. That's what Stelios at the reception desk tried to say when you told him about your inconvenience, although it was too late to do anything about it. We are sorry that something beyond our control, spoiled your stay. The alleys in the old town are very picturesque but narrow. However, it is rare to be disturbed by the sounds of conversation and laughter. We are sorry that this happened during your stay. We look forward to welcoming you again and providing you with an impeccable stay, as we always do. Yours sincerely

A beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of the old town, authentic and well appointed. Gorgeous courtyard restaurant that felt a very special place to eat, food was excellent and the service spot on. We were made welcome in all areas, the Greeks are so friendly and the hospitality is genuine. Our room was pleasant enough with everything you needed and most importantly a very comfortable bed.

Location was perfect in the centre of the old town and a short walk to everywhere. Our room, the champagne suite, was large, well equipped and very nicely decorated with a small balcony (no view). There was a healthy flight of stairs to negotiate (although our luggage was delivered to the room) and climbing in and out of the jacuzzi tub to access the shower was a challenge. What sets this hotel apart is the staff – everyone from reception, restaurant, housekeeping were so kind , helpful and eager to please we were sorry to leave. We ate at both restaurants, the first night with no reservation they still managed to squeeze us in; and both meals were fabulous. Breakfast in the outdoor garden was great – one of the best breakfasts we have experienced anywhere- everything served at the table with a choice of egg dishes and coffees. Highly recommended, we would have stayed longer had we known what a great spot this is.
