Lovely Avli Rethymno

Lovely welcome excellent room and bathroom great breakfast can’t wait to return Bed very comfortable location in the centre of old town Every time we stay we come away with a smile feeling special and very lucky

The best of Rethymno in a number of ways

Rethymno has numerous options from 5 star beachfront modern hotels to small Air BnB rentals. However the historic district is where it’s at .Full of life ,open stores, soup to nuts .Pharmacys open late, restaurants, bars and locals galore.
Avli lounge is not only a place to hang your hat but a location to call home. From the welcome greeting of CONSTANTINO,or the smile of ELENI , your journey within the walls of this wonderful location starts with a warmth you will never see at a Marriott or Hilton..
Another often overlooked item is that this location has an amazing restaurant.The kitchen puts out a cooked to order varied breakfast and in the evening serves a street side tabled mezza type menu or simply step inside to the Garden and find a mesmerizing,candle lite epicurean meals to write home about. Again the wait staff at the restaurant are smiling, helpful on local ingredients and they certainly go the extra mile daily.

Lovely hotel and service!!

I had a friend recommend this hotel for dinner and mentioned the hotel look really nice to even though she didn’t stay here. My husband and I did some research and decided to book this hotel and I’m so glad we did. AVIL Lounge Apartments is a lovely hotel in the heart of Rethymnon. Elena the concierge was an absolute gem to work with! She surprised us a honeymoon upgrade which was so sweet for our one night in Rethymnon. It was a stay I will cherish. The restaurant is delicious (we had breakfast and dinner there) and it’s in a beautiful floral setting. I highly recommend this place for both accommodations and dining.
