Ok, it was very cold and we were the first guests of the season but still received a warm welcome from Elena and she went out of her way to make things easy. Heaters and lots of blankets kept us warm in the room and lots of hot water! We were the only guests for four days but had lots... More

Friendly staff. Elena was extra helpful. Rooms are ok. We were on the ground floor, so we had problem with ants, originationg from the exterior, but we managed to deal with them. Rooms are clean. Location is excellent, near to the beach, to the bars, to the main pedestrian street.

We have been to Stalis many times, but this is our first stay at the Knossos Studio's. The apartments are basic (the norm in Greece) but they are spotless and well equipped, and all have a roomy balcony. Our towels and sheets were changed almost every day, and the hotel, pool, and bar area are always kept clean and tidy.... More

Not long back from another visit back to our second 'home'. And at home is how you are made to feel. We have stayed here a good few times now, and each time is as good as the last. The rooms are clean, comfortable - value for money - and for us a base to sleep, shower and change to... More

For various reasons we had not been able to visit Knossos Studios for four years. Our welcome from Elena was as wonderful as I always remembered. I have always felt that coming back here was coming home and anywhere else we go is going on holiday, and that Elena, Mama and Papa were our family. We were sorry not to... More
