Young Iro and Panos are very committed to give you all the informations you need for your stay, in a friendly and informal atmosphere. The room we stay in had all you need, with a pleasant attention to details, that make the difference.

I booked Barbara Studios over the internet, because I liked the way the setting and the rooms looked in the photos. The moment I got there I felt like I was part of the family or a good friend visiting, this is how nice Panos and Argyro and Argyro's parents were. The room was fantastic, spacious, well presented, done up... More

I went there only because it has good reviews and never heard about it before. Location is just perfect, in term of distance to beach, it's in the middle of the old souks-just in the middle and next to the harbor, parking is one minute walking distance. Panos and Iro (the owners) are helpful friendly and generous, trust me I'm... More

I was not sure what to expect from Barbara Studios before we arrived. I thought the rooms would be pretty basic, however, the room we stayed in (6) was lovely - spacious and modern. It was also cleaned every day and a small piece of cake and some juice were left in the fridge (things you would not expect when... More

We stayed 9 nights and enjoyed it so much. The room was spotlessly clean, every day. It was very comfortable, including the bed, and beach towels were a bonus for us. Panos and Iro were wonderful hosts, their map of restaurants and places to go was a fantastic resource. Every question was answered with a great suggestion, restaurants, sight-seeing, beaches......

Fantastic place. Stayed almost a week. Have some great memories and from a great location. Palos and his wife were amazing hosts. I could not ask for anything more. Clean, tidy, spacious, modern rooms. I would happily return on my next trip to Rythemno. Very highly recommended.

Iro and Panos (and don't forget Lily!), and their delightful villa of studio apartments, could not have been more perfect. The accommodation was simple and uncluttered, and kept fastidiously clean daily, to the point that we'd come home (and I use home in the fondest sense here) to find our scattered clothes folded and put away for us. The studios... More

The thing you realize straight away once you step in these studios is that this is not the average business oriented hotel. This is a place where the owners want you to spend a great time. They spent almost an hour with us providing maps, suggesting restaurants, giving tips on bars and cafe. I almost felt after few hours that... More

My husband and I stayed here during two nights as part of our trip around the island. The staff is really nice and they do not mind to spend time with you explaining the city and chating with you. They also suggest good places to eat and visit which we appreciated. The building is really nice and the balcony at... More

Cannot fault these studios or the family that run them.We have just returned after a week with our Grandaughter and they really looked after us.Dave must cook the best breakfast on the island and the Friday Barbacues were brilliant. Looking to book for September as a week here was not enough. Some lovely restaurants close by although the family and... More
