“Nice apartments in the middle of Rethymno”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

Avli Lounge Apartments is located in the heart of Rethymno. The Suites and Restaurants are located in different historic buildings. The location is perfect to explore old town and all of its shops. To go to Ikarus Beach it takes about 20 minutes by foot.

Our Champagne Suite was large and clean. The bed was comfortable and WiFi was working perfectly. TV-cable offered few english or german channels. Some amenities as for example the hairdryer or the shower installation should be renewed. The Jacuzzi in the room is great and is working perfectly.

There is a wonderful roof top which was not well maintained within our stay. We would have enjoyed our stay more if the roof top and the roof top bath would have been maintained better. Breakfast in Avli was ok but not great.

Overall I would recommend this hotel to a friend because of its location, nice rooms and surroundings.

This neat and sophisticated hotel is in the heart of old Rethymnon. The service was absolutely perfect and extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was very large, well-appointed and beautiful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in the White room which was beautiful although because it faced a busy street, can be a bi...

Our suite felt like we stepped back in time, but with all the necessary modern conveniences. Our family stayed in the champagne and orange suites. Both were so tastefully decorated. The hotel staff were all so accommodating and could not have been nicer. My daughter wasn't feeling well and I called to ask where I could purchase some throat lozenges and presto they were delivered to our door within 15 minutes!! Now that is excellent customer service. Located in the heart of this beautiful city, with so many restaurants, bars, and cafés to choose from. The two restaurants associated with the hotel both serve delicious fare, but bring plenty of euros for the Avli. The included breakfast was made from all fresh, local ingredients and included three courses. I felt like I was in heaven for three glorious days.

Room Tip: We read that some rooms near the restaurant were noisy at night, but our rooms (401 and 404) in buil...

We took a chance and relied on Tripadvisor to book 10 straight days in Avli in late April. It worked. It's a funny place in a way, not like a conventional hotel, but consists of rooms in neighbouring buildings. They are beautifully restored to the highest standard - we stayed in 2 and saw 3. The staff are universally superb. When they say they are here to serve you - that's what they mean. The restaurant is first class, definitely in Michelin 1 star territory and the chef, to whom we spoke several times, is also totally focussed on the customer. The breakfasts, mentioned several times, leave no room for lunch. The hotel is right in the centre of the old town with it's lovely narrow streets. It's busy but quiet and very pleasant. We will return!

The Jacuzzis have been mentioned. This is our one negative point. We are seniors, OAPs, and to us they are slightly dangerous. But that is one negative against so many positives. And maybe you like Jacuzzis.

Stayed one night in April this year and found the whole experience a real treat. Very professional staff and superb Cretan breakfast. The room was luxurious and if you don't go in high season, it doesn't break the bank. Great location in the heart of the old town. The restaurant is good but menu limited, the wine bar is amazing and the cocktail waiter one of the best!

Room Tip: I don't think you could go wrong here, very high quality even the smaller rooms

in the middle of small streets, Avli was a great surprise. With a beautiful design - from the restaurant to the hotel rooms, we had a great experience. The location is very central in Crete, which is good if you are renting a car and going around the island. We stayed in the green suite that had a big Jacuzzi, a giant bed and all amenities you can ask. Breakfast was so good that made us had dinner there.
