DON’T STAY HERE They should be Ashamed!
Expedia should remove this accommodation immediately. I am an Aussie and have travelled all over Europe and the world staying in hundreds of different hotels. However, unfortunately this hotel/apartment is by far the worst place I have ever had the pleasure (not) to stay in and so I have to comment. So here we go….there was no hot water when we arrived in the evening. There were used towels still in the bathroom (there were clean ones on the bed), the floor and apartment were filthy. The sheets didn’t fit the mattress, I actually had to take the sheets from the spare beds to make up the double bed to cover the mattress. The sheets had frayed edges and they were so thin you could see through them. So I called reception only to complain about the hot water (I just wanted to sleep by then and couldn’t be bothered to complain about the state of the place) and was told that it was because we had just arrived (that makes sense…not!) and that the water would be ready for the morning. Well after a restless uncomfortable night, we awoke and had 2 cold showers in the morning. We just wanted to leave by then, so I met with the owner/manager to give back the keys and told him “Worst hotel stay Ever!”. He asked me if the room was clean. This to me says there was a strong possibility that the room may not have been clean and that he knew it. So after pointing out this along with all the other issues he decided to argue with me. I couldn’t believe it. Not even an apology. DON’T STAY HERE.

In a beautiful port area
The hotel was excellent when comparing the price-quality relation. I had there at off-season so there was nicely quite. And even thought the pool area wasn't yet open, the beach was very calm and quite. The hotel itself might have been little bit more cleaner (even thought a cleaning lady visited there daily). The dinner hotel offered was good and big. The breakfast was quite small, and if you stay there longer you might want some variety, since it was mostly bread, weird yoghurt, musli, and some sweet cookie. The beach isn't the biggest one in Bali, but if you one to go to the bigger one, it takes around 15min to walk there, but the bigger one is more crowded so I preferred the hotel's beach.

Apart Hotel Sophia/Mythos Beach
My first dealings with this hotel upon arrival (60 Euro taxi fare from the airport and then a further 60 back to the airport) was with a member of staff clad in a dirty singlet and shorts and the other in pyjamas, neither of which could direct me to my room however insisted i go across the road to Mythos Beach Hotel where i would get my key. This turned out to be a restaurant run by the owners of the hotel. This information should be on the website or at least something in writing upon arrival as the two people who attended me were most difficult to understand. Eventually I was able to find someone who gave me my key. No assistance with my luggage, considering my age I found it difficult to take my suitcase up 73 stairs. I asked the staff if they could change me to a room nearer the ground floor with out success. The only good thing I can say about this hotel is the view from the balcony. The food was mediocre, when ordering drinks from the waitstaff I needed each time to follow up with the whereabouts of my change. Overall i would not recommend this hotel unless you are fit and love climbing stairs.

Worst stay of my life
First of all, it is misguiding to the customers to claim that the Aparthotel Sofia/Mythos Beach Hotel is in Rethymnon, Crete. The hotel is actually located in an entirely different town called Bali in Crete that is 25 kms from Rethymnon. And, the only mode of convenient transportation from the hotel to the town of Rethymnon is a cab (taxi), the trip costs Euro 30 at least. An alternative mode of transportation that was suggested by the hotel staff was the State Highway bus, the stop for which is a good one hour (4 kms) walk from the hotel. More importantly, the hotel does not qualify to be listed as a two star hotel on the expedia internet site. The rooms do not have the basic amenities such as a television, intercom, airconditioning or simple ventilation. The room and bathroom are cramped and poorly maintained. In short, I could barely stay the night that I arrived at the Aparthotel Sofia/Mythos Beach (I arrived at the hotel at 11:30 pm and did not have many options but to stay the night)and was desperately looking for an alternate accomodation in the town of Rethymnon the next morning. My ordeal with this hotel had a happy ending the next morning, as I moved into one of the several good standard hotels and apartments that are easily available in the town of Rethymnon, Crete at much lesser tarriffs with all the standard amenities that I would expect from a hotel listed in Expedia and did not get at the Aparthotel Sofia/Mythos Beach hotel at Bali (25 kms from Rethymnon).

Good value for money
Overall, had a very good time here. The food was on the whole very good, the room servicing was a little erratice (some days they did more than others), but for the money was very good. Only complaint would be the fact that there wasn't always much hot water available in the evenings.
