Axos Hotel

Axos is a cozy and pleasant apartment hotel, in a beautiful location and with a great variety of services. Highly recommended as an alternative for those who want to explore majestic Rethymno and its surroundings but don’t want to be confined within the city. Its name comes from the village ‘AXOS’ where the family that runs the hotel comes from, works since 1989 and been fully renovated in 2009. Axos is located in Platanias which is the most well-known seaside village for the holidaymakers with restaurants, supermarkets, bars, stores with clothes or souvenirs and with a very good bus and taxi transport. To its guests it offers free Internet at the public areas (lobby, pool, bar) (Wi-Fi) and its target is the friendly atmosphere since it is a Family Run hotel. Last but not least, Axos is very pleased and proud to announce that the National Jury of programs ”GREEN KEY” decided to reward Axos hotel, after having evaluated their application for participating in this ecological label for tourist units. So now Axos is officially a “GREEN KEY” hotel for the last years.

Nature has the need and participation from everybody. Only if we work all together we will be able to solve the environmental problems of our world. More and more any decisions that we make as a person or as a group has its consequences to the environment. Our daily habits determine in a big scale how the planet that we live is going to be and what are we going to leave to the next generations. Its in our hand to protect nature starting just by changing our habits in the house, in our jobs or in our schools. Even the way that we use our car, doing the shopping or when we are on holidays. Because of that “Axos” hotel has started a campaign to help in that matter, by doing these things:
• We changed all the lights in the rooms with energy saving light bulbs. It uses less electricity than standard bulbs to do the same job (except the public areas)
• We have putted a special bin for the used batteries in the reception area
• We have replaced all the batteries with recharged ones until the end of season
• We use friendly to the environment detergents
• We use a special jacket for the hot water tank in order to save at list 20% energy
• We use special mechanisms on balcony doors and windows to save electric energy from the air-conditions
• We have recycle bags for paper, plastic and aluminium in all rooms.
