Great location in old town. Quiet setting but within very short walk of everything - restaurants, shops and beach. Very clean and appreciated free air conditioning and safe in bedroom. Been to similar apartments elsewhere in Greek islands and have always been charged extra for these facilities. Booked for bed and breakfast and was able to have continental or good old English breakfast.

We stayed here one night. Our room (9) was on the second floor with twin beds (exactly what we requested). The room was spacious, lots of cupboard space which we didn't need to use, a small balcony, clean and basic bathroom, and small kitchen which again, we didn't use. The place is in an excellent location. Our only qualm was that the reception staff was not available both times we needed him/her. The first was to ask about the wifi which was got the code for, from next door, Bistro 22. The second time, we were checking out at about 10am and we needed to catch a bus so we were delayed by about 10 mins because of this. I would highly recommend this hotel but plan to make sure the reception staff are available as they are not always there. We did not use the pool as it was very small.

We loved everything about Pepi studios, the warm welcome, beautiful rooms with lovely furnishings, great location in centre of old town, minutes from some wonderful restaurants but really close to the beach. A lovely oasis to relax and chill out.
Absolutely perfect. We'll certainly be back.

Room Tip: It's worth paying extra to upgrade to a superior room.

We arrived about 9.30pm to be met off the coach by one of the family a nice touch,we checked in then shown to our room that was upstairs very large room table and chairs small sink cooking rings a nd a fridge and a kettle.
small but modern bathroom with clean towels every day.
we had two single beds but asked for a double this was sorted out the next morning.
Bistro 22 for breakfast each morning was a nice touch the staff were all brilliant lovely fresh orange juice a nice welcome.
The gardens was very relaxing you could drink your own drinks as they don't have a bar so it was nice ti chill with a glass wine or a beer in the afternoon.

Room Tip: If you don't book with Thomas Cook you get a ground floor room or we could have paid extra to up...

Pepi is absolutely perfect for location and a chilled out break in Rethymnon. It is right in the heart of the old town and on the door step of some beautiful restaurants and bars. We arrived after a delayed flight to a warm welcome from Joseph who showed us to our room which was clean and well equipped. We stayed in a standard room which is perfect for what we needed as we spent most of the day out and about and the evenings were spent eating out and soaking up the atmosphere of the old town. The superior rooms looked fantastic and when we stay there again (which we would do in the blink of an eye) we would consider upgrading. Although the pool is small, there is a certain peace and tranquility in the garden around the pool and it is a lovely spot to chill out and relax. We found the beds very comfortable and although basic there is everything you need.

The breakfast at bistro 22 (the hotel's bistro) was the best breakfast I have ever had at a hotel, it is table service in a very chic and stylish bistro which was also lovely for a beer on an evening. The laid back approach of the staff is perfect, breakfast was served whenever you wanted it, even if it was at noon and even the bread is baked fresh at the bistro.

We booked Pepi with Manos as the cheaper hotel in the brochure, however after seeing the other hotels whist we were there, Pepi is far superior to the rest for location, atmosphere, value for money and the staff working there. We would certainly stay again and would recommend anyone having any doubts to go ahead and book as you will not be disappointed.

Pepi Studios is in a great location in the heart of the old town, and is also within walking distance to the bus station. We had an upstairs studio at the back. The room was large with A/C, but the bed was uncomfortable with springs poking up. The courtyard area was a peaceful pleasant place to relax, with lounge chairs, trees and flowers around a small pool. The hosts were friendly and helpful. There was no breakfast included, but we found a great buffet breakfast at Palazzini di Corina for a reasonable price. Overall, we found it a pleasant place to stay.

On our arrival we were extremely pleased with our accommodation. We were in room 13, a beautiful ground floor deluxe studio. The setting couldn't have been more perfect, an oasis right in the middle of Old Town. With plenty of outside seating and relaxing areas. An abundance of shade from the beautiful trees and flowers. Yes, the pool is small, but as we love the beach, we only used the pool to cool off in the late afternoon. After reading previous reviews, we were prepared for the bathroom shower, ideally it would be better if there was a full shower door, but there is a drain on the floor and just taking care whilst having a shower meant that the floor didnt get flooded - a small minus to an overwhelming plus!! We would highly recommend Pepi Studios and would definately stay again.

Room Tip: Ground floor deluxe studios are beautiful, we did not view the upstairs studios
