It's like coming home with warm welcome by the owners. We received a detailed map of best restaurants, tavernas etc. Good location in old town. Just a short walk from Fortezza and Venetian harbor. The owners are always eager to give any advice you need.

Wonderful place to stay in Rethymno in the heart of the old town. It is also easy walking distance to the beach and the new town. Beautiful relaxing place with very friendly owners.Highly recommended.

We have stayed only one night, so we didn't have time enough to enjoy all of the place. However, we have been welcomed by Iro, Barbara's daughter, who was so kind to bring us a cold beer as we told her we were tired and thirsty after many hours on the road. She also gave us a map with many... More

Very friendly staff, clean rooms and perfect location in the old town, yet in a quiet neighbourhood. Great experience of cretan hospitality and cretan spirit. Totally reccommendable to anyone who wants to experience the real character of this island.

Fantastic experience! Great location in town, very close to the harbor and everything in Old Town. The owners are super friendly and provided a map of town with suggestions. The local knowledge was very helpful. Nice rooms, nice people. Everything I could hope for.

Stayed for 10 nights and were looking for a more homely experience than resort hotels can offer ... Panos and Iro definitely delivered this! Good value and in the heart of the lovely old town which is the best area to be based. About 15 min walk to main beach- avoid the first few rows of umbrellas which cost 9... More

Great stay! Immediately felt at home. The room was large, clean and had a great balcony where we ate breakfast every morning. The daily treats tasted amazing! Beautiful old town. Very helpful with activities and planning. Highly recommended.

Our second stay here was just as great as the first one! Do not miss this place: You will get the most thoughtful and helpful hosts, and the place is simply fantastic. We had this lovely appartment with a fully equipped kitchen and a small balcony, and each days we were given a small treat, like muffins, a special cake,... More

Had picked Barbara Studios through previous reviews and I was not disappointed. From the moment Panos opened the door (a fairly non descript door!) and welcomed me to his home "compound" I was so pleased that this was where I had booked! The location is excellent - right in the old town. The entrance opens up to a wonderful courtyard... More

We just spent a whole week in the lovely old town of Rethymno. Our stay was made so special by Panos and Iro, our incredibly helpful and friendly hosts at Barbara studios. I miss our charming little studio with balcony already!! Rethymnon is a perfect place where to be based in Crete. The old town is beautiful, with a wide... More
