Me and my boyfriend stayed in studio number 14 for 3 nights last week. We have to say that Barbara studios is very well located, less than 5 min away on foot from everything you want to see/do and you have a free parking 600m away from them. Furthermore, all their tips were valuable. Also, it s a family run... More

Lovely room in beautiful building, couldnt be a more central location. Was met on arrival by the owner who gave us a map with best places to eat/drink/visit circled clearly on them. Later on we were given some sweets his wife had baked. Would definitely recommend to anyone - also really cheap for where it was and how nice the... More

Barbara Studios is well-located in Rethymo old town and the couple that runs it is Greek hospitalility at its best. They made our Rethymo stay memorable by going out of their way to make us feel welcome and to make sure we enjoyed our visit. They helped us with parking, getting around the area, treated us to some delicious homemade... More

We are a young couple and we spent two weeks at BarbaraStudios in July. This amazing place is located in a ideal position, very close to the small and romantic city center and not far from the seaside. The apartments upstairs with balcony are very nice and cozy, from ours we even had a beautiful sea view from the balcony.... More

We liked everything about this place. Comfort, location, and most of all the staff. Panos and Ira are so helpful and friendly. They treat you like a family member and not a guest at a hotel. I highly recommend staying here and I plan on returning here in two years.

Hi Jsr, Thank you very much for your review on TripAdvisor, and we are very glad that you enjoyed our family house and decided to come back in the near future. I would just like to say that we never feel that we accommodate "guests", but rather that we host our friends. :-) Looking forward to talking to you both... More

Wonderful location, lovely little rooms, very pretty house and garden. For exploring Rethymno and the surrounding area you cant go wrong. Iro and Panos (And Lily) are amazingly friendly and welcoming people (and dog) who up front tell you that they are welcoming you into their home and it really shows in the standards and cleanliness not to mention the...

Barbara studios is in the middle of Rethymnon - supermarket, restaurants and bars can be reached within 2-5 minutes. Apartment was clean and very nice - the view from the balkony is beautiful. Most important - the hosts are amazing, always polite and willing to help and support. We can recommend Barbara studios and would be happy to come back.... More

The place we'd just left had been lousy and the word "studio" in the name of our next destination, for some reason, didn't heighten my expectations. I stepped in warily, through the back door, and was greeted by a jovial man who, extending his hand, promptly introduced himself: Panos (that's his name) has that talent, quite rare I think, of...

As soon as we arrived at the Hotel we were made to feel right at home. We were offered a beautifully decorated, clean, quiet and comfy room with view on a charming terrace. The location was perfect. In the old town close to the harbour and at walking distance from pretty much everywhere (and important 10 minutes from bus station)... More

Very kind, very friendly hosts, going to extra trouble to give advice and check that our stay was comfortable. Very well situated for shopping. Clean and well equipped. We really appreciated the treats not just as welcome, but every day.
