I had a brilliant time at this hotel, it was made even better by the staff that work there. Both Maria and Artur went out their way to ensure we had a great stay. The hotel is modern by greek standards and kept in great condition. The location isn't amazing, Rethymnon is quite far away but there is a bus... More

Nice and cosy. We really enjoyed staying here. I would recommend it to everybody. The hotel is in a great location within the Rethymnon area of Crete. Definitely rent a car and spend time exploring the region and coastline. There's so much to see. The owner and staff are very friendly. Great atmosphere!

We visited Crete for the first time about three weeks ago and stayed at La Stella apartments. We had read previous reviews and were quite impressed. Got there and Arthur was friendly and welcoming. The next day met Maria who was so friendly and chatty. She gave us advise on where to visit at reasonable prices. This we did and... More

We stayed at these self-catering apartments at the end of the season ( end of October) and were delighted how suitable and comfortable they were The breakfast was perfectly adequate and there was no crowding to serve yourself. Beds are comfortable and the lack of late-night noise was welcomed by us to give a good night's sleep. As other reports... More

We spent 2 weeks in La Stella Apartments and had a fab time. The hotel is small but everything you need is there. Our room was great for the 2 of us. We had to pay for air con and the safe but this is hardly unusual. Especially at the prices we paid for the holiday. The food and amenities... More

Probably one of the best studio apartments I've experienced. Giorgos and his staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are first class, the room service (cleaning, fresh towels,bedding etc.) is first class. We opted for B & B and were not disappointed. Don't think it's particularly child friendly, but great for sober adults, and Giorgos' and Marias' raki is... More

We've just got back from a 10 night stay at this hotel, we stayed in room 108. Upon arrival (around 2am) we found a note with our room key - some people have moaned about this and said someone should have been there but we personally didn't mind and didn't expect it. The room wasn't huge but we didn't mind... More

Dear Tiffany, thank you so much for your kind and detailed review, we really appreciate it! The reason we reply to your review is just to explain about the stars of the hotel. Our hotel is officially 3 stars and rated 4 stars in most of the travel agents. The reason that appears with 2 stars in TripAdvisor, is a... More

We stayed for a week at La Stella and were really impressed with our room, which was apartment style meaning that we had plenty of space. The lounge room had two big sofas which could also be used as beds, seating and a kitchenette. The kettle and stove came in handy when we had to leave super-early for a day... More
