Concierge.com's insider take:
While some might argue that the best reason to visit Rethymnon is a meal at Avli's garden restaurant, others insist that an even better cause would be to stay in one of its seven stone-walled suites, hidden behind ancient facades along a cobblestone street. The suites have whitewashed stone walls and naturally finished exposed-beam ceilings, meant to evoke a 15th-century atmosphere, save the addition of a whirlpool tub, so that guests may enjoy a pleasure unknown in medieval timesbathing. Each suite has been individually decorated in a different color scheme, by someone with an artist's eye and a generous budget. The Brown Suite, with its veranda, is a favorite.
