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. After a few nights here we moved to another part of the island and stayed in a 5* hotel - we... More

These apartments were in a great location set within the old town and metres from bars and restaurants but also set in a quiet street away from the road. On arrival Iro and Panos were very helpful and gave us a map highlighting all recommended restaurants, meze bars, ATMs etc. which on recommendation took us to some lovely restaurants where... More

Hi Jesse, Thank you very much for your wonderful review and your kind words about our hospitality. Kettles are provided in all our rooms and we are very sorry that you did not find it. It is true that we don't change the towels every day, because we try to be as "Green" as possible, however we are glad to... More

Get a bottle of wine and enjoy the view from the roof top: The castle, harbour and the old town. The owner is amazing. He spent 30 minutes to give us advice. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is actually clean (unlike many other hotels on Crete).

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

My friend and I stayed here for two nights and we were so impressed with the personal service Iro showed us! We were truly welcomed like family and had a lovely stay. 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
