This place is amazing! Great location, extra comfortable beds and the most wonderful hosts I encountered during my five weeks in Crete. Would absolutely return and highly recommend! They made me feel so welcome, safe and comfortable. The complimentary raki is amazing too! Clean and quiet this place is something really special.

Panos & Iro made us feel so welcome, Ito even stayed up late to greet us and brought us some cake, she gave us home made cake everyday! Along with fresh orange juice and a small bottle of Raki. Our apartment was lovely, with a small balcony. You are in the centre for everything you need! Thank you both once... More

This place was one of a kind. The hosts are friendly, respectful and knowledgeable. Each floor has inherited the archetecture of a different era from the area (Venetian, Ottoman, Greek). Our room had authentic stone walls and a beautiful unique Ottoman bathroom. We stayed in 5 different places in Crete, and this was easily the best. Highly recommended.

This is one of those places that helps solidify my opinion that boutique, family-run hotels and studios are the way to go, to be able to travel abroad, in comfort, as a couple on a budget. Panos and Iro were infinitely helpful, so kind, and the raki and treats in the room were a nice touch. The hand-drawn map in... More

Everything about this place was superb. We were greeted by the most friendly, energetic hostess who checked us in earlier and showed us a map of Rethymnon with her highlights and recommendations. The room was spacious, clean, and nicely designed. You can tell that the management places a lot of care into every little detail. The room was VERY well... More

We enjoyed our time at barbara studios. good price, clean room, great bed, nice persons. We stayed there for two nights and we would come back. You need to book a long time in advance, else it could be troblesome to get a room.

This is a little gem; perfect position right behind the Venetian harbour, beautifully restored rooms, pretty garden to sit in and roof terrace, very helpful owners who are on site every day, excellent price - just can't be faulted.

We spent our last night in Barbara Studios and enjoyed our short stay very much. The room was newly renovated and had a very pleasant atmosphere. Barbara Studios is next to all Major attractions in Rethymnon, surrounded by nice tavernas and Restaurants. Host Panos was very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend a stay there!!!
