“Perfect”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We have just returned from 2wks at the Astali. Having been before, we had no worries about what to expect. The family run hotel is spotless and all the staff are only too pleased to give whatever help they can.
Situated a short walk to either the old town or beach or marina....a perfect hotel in a perfect location.
We'll be back again next year.

I have recently returned from a two week break in Rethymon Crete staying at The Astali Hotel.

This is a hotel that gets a big seal of approval, the owner and her family can never do enough for you to make your stay enjoyable ,but without being intrusive., They are always on hand to answer any questions you may have, the breakfast buffet is good and varied with plenty of choice.

The hotel all over is kept in a spotlessly clean manner .

it is in a good location within minutes walk of the beach and restaurants to cater for all tastes

If you are at loss for a holiday idea take the plunge you will not regret it

We stayed for a week from the 13th of May 2014. The rooms and all areas of the Hotel were spotless. The owners were very friendly and accommodating.

The towels and linen were white and crisp. The bathroom was small and the shower could have done with glass around instead of the short curtain which made the floor very wet. The balcony was small and had grape vines around it which is no good if you want to sunbathe. (Room 310)

About a 10 minute walk to a very long beach which had all types of beach sports.The weather was not that good , windy and cloudy and the sea was cold. You had to go to the beach if you wanted to sunbathe as there was no facility at the Astali. We like the beach so it was fine for us.

In the basement there were fantastic showers which we didn't realise were there until the day we were coming home. All towels were supplied there as well. For a two star hotel we were very impressed.

Breakfast did not have any meat. Toast, boiled eggs, cheese, cereals and cake. Fruit juice and tea or coffee.

Room Tip: We had rooms at the rear which I believe are quieter than the front which face 2 main roads.

From the friendly welcome when we arrived at 4am to the moment we got back on the bus to the airport, the family at the Astali were unfailingly kind and helpful. The hotel is spotless and the location excellent, being no distance from the harbour and from the old town and 15 minutes from the bus station . Great breakfasts with eggs , cheese , Greek yoghurt with honey and home made jam The awards this hotel has received are well deserved.

Stayed at end of October, so only a few other guests as end of main holiday season. What really made our stay enjoyable was the warm welcome and lots of information provided by the family who run the hotel. We will definitely stay again if we return to Rethymnon.

We have just returned from Rethymnon having stayed in the Astali hotel. The weather was kind to us - temperatures around 24 degrees - very pleasant for us. What was equally important was the comfort, cleanliness and friendliness in the hotel. Nothing is too much trouble and high standards are very important to the family to ensure that guests enjoy their holiday. The breakfast was buffet style providing a good selection and which we were able to enjoy at a leisurely pace. Holiday advice on local services, interests and places to eat was all happily given. We ate well at breakfast, explored or sunbathed during the day, selected an evening meal at one on the numerous eateries and returned to a good nights sleep in a comfy bed. The hotel is as described: Small & Friendly but we have to add: superbly well run. We hope to be able to return soon.
