The manager, George, is a sweet man who does whatever he can to make our stay a pleasant one. We will certainly stay... More

George the manager arranged our transport from the airport so arrival was very easy.On arrival there was a welcome drink and treats in the room, including fresh flowers every day. He recommended restaurants which were excellent- especially Manillos which was a bit of a walk but a wonderful night out. Our room was on the 1st floor with sea view-we... More

The place is very nice and clean. Use of the pool next door was good and beach a minute walk away. George gave plenty of good advice for places to go/eat and picked us up from the airport for cheaper than a normal taxi. If you want to go a bit cheaper then you can get a bus to Chania... More

We have just come back from 10 days at Despina Studios. When we arrived George gave us lots of information about the area, restaurants, trips etc. The Studio was perfect with a sea view. Everything was spotlessly clean. Towels and sheets changed every day. The cleaner was lovely and works so hard. If you need any information George will find... More

A very clean, well-located hotel; just 30 yards from the beach, but on the main road with a bus stop right in front. Buses to Chania are about every 20 minutes (3.20 euro return). We had a double room with sea view, it had a small kitchen unit with a big fridge, two hot plates and a small grill. This... More

Fantastic place to stay if you're looking for a well priced accommodation. Georgios, the owner is very nice, cheerful and helpful person, same as the cleaning lady Haloula (hope I written that properly). They both made our stay very special. The studios are modern, well equipped and very, very clean. Beach is literally at the doorstep, same as swimming pool... More
