I can thoroughly recommend these apartments. Delightful architecture, full of character, as you can see from the pictures. The people who run it are so helpful, making sure you have everything you need. You can mix with travellers from right around the world, or keep yourself to yourself if you prefer. The attractive old town is right on your doorstep... More

Perfect location in old town Rethymno, close to the buzzing city life and beaches and still Barbara Studios is a peacefull and quiet paradise. True, it may not be a 5 star luxury, but who needs a swimming pool when you have the whole sea in front of you. And Iro & Panos will take the best care ever of... More

We had great time staying here and returned for a night on our return journey. The location was ideal and the young couple managing the place were really friendly and helpful, showing us all the places to visit and eat. There was a supermarket just round the corner so that we could make our own breakfast when we wanted to.... More

Owners were wonderful - very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, well laid out and relaxing. We appreciated the facts sheet that the owners had put together and written on to help us find restaurants, cafes, sites etc. We were very happy with the location and had a great two days there!

Location is prime. Owners are wonderful, hospitable, helpful! Our room was very clean, with plenty of hot water. Owner recommended for dinner a place called Raki Ba Raki, Trust me, find it!! I'm so glad we chose Barbara Studios. Would return immediately.

An ideal location, very central and close to harbour, beach, shops and tourist attractions. For an older person, the accommodation is not ideal. Had to get up in the night to re-make the bed as the sheets were not tucked in and all the bedding was in the floor! I injured the muscles of my back as I lifted the... More

I stayed here during November 2013 visiting friends and enjoying the celebrations of "Arkadi Days" in Rethymnon. I have never been so lucky as to be treated as well as these hosts did for me during the 8 days that I stayed here! They are outstanding hosts and they go well above what is required to make you feel like... More

We stayed at Barbara Studios in September 2013 and had a truly wonderful time. We arrived late after a long day of travelling and were greeted by Panos, who was as welcoming and hospitable a host as you could wish for. Over the course of the following 5 days, he helped suggest day trips around the local area (all excellent... More

Barbara Studios is a really charming enterprise. The accommodation was ideal for us, with a beautiful balcony over the garden, well set out, spotlessly clean room, and well appointed kitchen. The view from the roof terrace at sunset is breathtaking. Best of all was the warm welcome shown by Panos and Iro, who really are a lovely couple. Every day... More
