Very hospitable owners offering good service (recommendations for bars, restaurants, sights etc.); house is set in a quiet little road in the heart of Rethymno town; rooms are spacious and the one we had was extremely quiet - room number 2 - we really appreciated the fact that we asked for a quiet room and got probably the most quiet...

I'm agreeing completely with the recent reviews otherwise being repetitive. We're experienced travellers and found our vacation the best in all respects for many years. So we've a preliminary booking for next summer.

We stayed here for a night but it was enough to feel so welcome by Panagiotis and his family. Very clean studios, have everything you need inside and even more.Very good location, beautiful old mansion house turned into studios with an inner yard for relaxation time. Very nice stay!! Highly recommended!!

A really welcoming place. Iro and Panos really welcome the guests well and make everyone feel at home. From the map of the local area on arrival (annotated with the best restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, pharmacies and cash machines), to the lovely cakes left in the room each day, their hospitality made my stay a very special one. Thank you... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Barbara Studios. We were greeted by Panos who immediately sat us down in the shade and made us drinks. Iro then joined us and we were taken to our studio which was spotlessly clean, beautifully presented and extremely comfortable. There were so many very thoughtful touches:tea, coffee, chilled orange juice, cookies, jams,... More

Great stay at Barbara studios, hosts extremely welcoming and friendly. Looks deceiving from outside, inside is lovely, pretty garden and great roofterrace. A lovely touch much appreciated was a large bottle of fresh orange squash in fridge and chocolate biscuits made by the host. Also all toiletries you need and fresh coffee, tea, sugar, milk and biscuits. Tv and Toaster!... More

Barbara Studios is a home away from home. Iro and Panos make the guests feel warmly wellcome in several, thoughtful ways - little surprises in the kitchen, a good map of old town with the best restaurants, coffee shops, pizza places, ice cream, open markets on different days etc. Don't hesitate to ask, if there is something you'd like to...

A family owned old but very well preserved building. The rooms are clean and tidy with kitchen and all appliances included also very good hair drier and iron. The outdoor environment is very cozy too. It is a very quiet place although it is placed in the old town. The owner Panos is an amazing person. He will provide you... More
