3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2014

Firstly we thought the hotel was a 4 star but in reality was definitely a 3. it was also totally unsuitable as a Saga hotel due to the amount of families and younger people staying in the same complex, we were very much the minority of 10% in this vast complex. Unfortunately we experienced 4 of our rooms being burgled,... More

Dont be fooled by all the great reviews of the Imperial Studios . They couldn't be further from the truth.

I stayed at the Imperial Studios for 1-8 August 2012 with my best friend. We arrived at midday and were the first drop from the airport (literally 20minute drive if that!). Upon arrival we were greeted by Zac who took us straight to the bar for a much needed beer! The owners are lovely and really looked after us all... More

Words can hardly describe how wonderful Crete is in early Summer. I had been meaning to visit for years and somehow it went off my radar. But I'm very glad that I remembered about it. I researched thoroughly on Trip Advisor before making my choice of where to stay. It gave me the confidence when the airline initially lost our... More

The studios are beautifully simple, clean and comfortable. Walking distance to amoudara and some nice tavernas.The pool area is fringed with palms and is for residents only, as their are only...

This place really grew on me. We had taken a value holiday so we weren't expecting 5 star. The brothers greeted us with a beer and a handshake, and were thouroughly charming and generous throughout the week. The place was clean and well run. The rooms were small and basic, but comfortable enough. Couple of beds, a sink, fridge, kettle... More

The Hotel Imperial or Imperial Studios in Amoudara, Crete is run by 2 brothers, Zac & Georgio. Zac & Georgio are amazing! They make a point of greeting everyone by name and come across as genuinely caring about their guests. The emphasis is relax and enjoy. This is an ideal place for couples and families but not suitable for youngsters... More
