We spent only three nights at Barbara Studios but our stay was the most memorable hotel/inn experience that we've had in a long time. We were upgraded to the deluxe room and the owners, Panos and Iro, were so hospitable and friendly. We arrived late at night and Panos walked to our taxi, which stopped a street away, and greeted...

Rethymno is a very sweet little town blessed with good weather and warm welcoming people. Love the Cretans, always pleasant and helpful - and with a good sense of humour. We were lucky to stay in Barbara studios. Panos and his wife are a lovely couple that know how to make guests feel like they are home. Everyday you can... More

We've just got back from a week's stay at Barbara Studios. This was a really convenient location to stay while we explored Rethymno and the surrounding area, and provided good value for money. As many other reviews have stated, however, our stay was made really special by how friendly and hospitable our hosts Panos and Iro were. They were always... More

We were shown a map of town, marked with places to see and to eat. The value was great, too! I would HIGHLY recommend Barabra Studios as your... More

Lovely place & lovely people! Panos & Iro go the extra mile to make everything perfect during your stay. Home made lemonade, raki, & fresh cakes every day, how great is that? Toiletries & hairdryer are provided as well as iron. Plenty of cupboard space & a small kitchen area with a fridge. We had a room on the top... More

Iro and Panos made us feel so welcome and provided us with such helpful advice during our visits. We spent two nights in this delightful town on our way to and from Heraklion and Chania. Our first room on the second floor was a large double room with an extra bed settee, plenty of cupboard space, a small kitchen area,... More

I stayed in the independent deluxe studio on sohora. The studio itself was spacious, clean and well appointed. It is tucked into a quaint little pedestrian/residential street and is conveniently located to bus station and all the major sites were no more than 5-7 mins away walking. The hosts- panos and Iro are very welcoming and responsive to text messages... More

We have stayed here many times now and our hosts Pano and Iro have always been most pleasant and helpful. The studios are very well kept and tastefully decorated and are situated in a quiet street in the old town close to all the restaurants and bars. We will be returning here again in September.
