Location is just great - very close to the old town and walking distance from bus station. Despina, the owner, is extremaly helpful. There is everyting you may need - even washing machine and hair dryer, not to mention kitchen equipped with small cooker and tea/coffe. Our studio was cleaned for us every day. Nice place to stay in Chania... More

Spacious, clean and cozy with a small but lovely balcony outside.The studios are located in the heart of old town that is so convenient cause everything is on... More

I booked Iason Studios for a holiday for my boyfriend's 30th birthday after the amazing reviews on Tripadvisor. I wondered how Despina could possibly live up to the lovely comments she'd got on here but she really does! She was so helpful even before I'd booked the week-giving me some history of Chania and plenty of things to do, public... More

Very comfortable, charming location, clean and cozy. My studio was not large, but it had all I needed, including a balcony with a small table (room for 2). Despina was very welcoming, friendly and available when needed. Be aware that this is in the old town, which is very lively. At night, I heard conversation and music from neighboring restaurants...

We felt very welcomed by Despina, the owner, who welcomed us with real hospitality, raki, and traditional nibbles. The studio was very clean and comfortable, linen and towels were changed every few days, soaps, and washing-up things were there already. The shower was excellent, and there was even greek coffee for us to use in the kitchen! There was a... More

We have stayed at Iason maybe 5 or 6 times which really says it all. Despina embodies Cretan hospitality. Her English is excellent and idiomatic and if you need help or information she is always there, willing to give advice or assistance. I am a little ashamed that I have never before posted a review but on reading the previous... More

Despina, our hostess, is wonderful - friendly and generous. We had raki upon our arrival, and a bottle of olive oil from her family orchard. The rooms are airy and large for a studio, and the rooftop, graced with flowering Bougainvillea, provides a grand view. We stayed in Chania for 8 weeks and were very comfortable. Iason Studios are in... More

Despina, the host, takes time to communicate with us back and forth before we book the room. She sends a lot of pictures of her available rooms for us to study. Once we booked the room, she provided detailed information to get to her studios, to get to the old market, and the things we could do while we are... More

We booked an airport to Iason Studios transfer in advance via email communications with Despina, and are glad we did. It was only 20€ and well worth not having to figure out taxis or bus schedules. Despina was waiting for us when we arrived. She was so friendly and helpful! She was kind enough to provide us with a bit... More
