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.

This is a really beautiful accommodation with a lot of love for details, in the hearth of the old city of Rethymnon. The 8 rooms / suites are in 3 different buildings, which are very close to each other. On the roof of one building there is a roof teracce with a small plunge pool. As the rooms / suites are in historical buildings, nothing can be changed, which means that there are no elevators. This might be an issue for some, as the steps are very steep. We had booked to separate rooms and were upgraded to a Junior and Executive suite. Both of them very beautiful and tastefully decorated. The Executive suite has a small balcony overlooking the tapas restaurant which belongs to AVLI and a roof teracce, which is great at night (during the day it was too hot / sunny there). Upon check-in we got offered a drink of choice in the tapas restaurant, and as it was lunch time, a tasty mezze platter. Breakfast is served in the lovely small garden and is very tasty, using only locally grown and produced products. Eleni and Stelios made our short 2 nights stay at AVLI very enjoyable. Should I return to Rethymnon, I will definitely return to AVLI.

A series of converted properties that provides 9 or so unique rooms on old Rethymnon. Each room is beautifully decorated and are well kitted out. A roof terrace on one provides a place to take the sun and a plunge in the tiny pool right in the heart of town. The restaurant in the downstairs has a very pretty courtyard and serves some of the best food in town - very beautiful and romantic. The neighbourhood is full of other eating option and the Raki Ba Raki is part of the same establishment and a fun alternative. Located in the old streets it is well located to explore the castle town and sea front. We enjoyed it all greatly - friends recommended it - we live in Chania and stopped over for a night - we will repeat!

We stayed at the Avli Lounge Apartments in September 2020 and I would highly recommend the hotel. The suites are of a really good standard and centrally located in the Rethymno Old Town. Our suite was the Champagne Suite. It was a large very nicely decorated room with large king size bed and decent size lounge area. The bathroom again was large and had a Jacuzzi bath big enough for two people to use. The roof top Jacuzzi with terrace was also very nice and had lovely views over Rethymnon Old Town.

I have stayed two nights in the brown suite, a nice penthouse with two terrasses. The room was nicely decorated and comfortable, in the old town but in a very quiet street. The breakfast was both original and delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. An excellent address.
