Romanza Studios
Ranked #1 of 10 Specialty Lodging in Assos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 27, 2014

We stayed at Romanza for 2 weeks in the two rooms on the top floor. This beautiful hotel has the most glorious views over Assos Bay and surrounding areas. It is very quiet, extremely clean and comfortable and the owners are like family, no request is too great. The village and lovely beach is a short walk downhill where you will find the exceptional food from the restaurant Platinos. If you are visiting Assos this is the only place to stay, we cannot wait to go back and see our Greek family at Romanza.

Stayed: August 2013

Pretty apartments with lovely decor and very helpful owner. The view from the balcony of the upstairs apartments is stunning, you'll have no views if staying downstairs, however, which was disappointing, given it was the same price. Keep in mind space is at a premium, so you may not be able to park out front of the apartments. If staying upstairs you have a flight of stairs to contend with, if carrying heavy luggage. We had two separate apartments, the upstairs apartment was great, a/con. very effective (which is very important to me, as I really feel the heat) - room has a small fridge, very handy - and there's a sideboard in entrance for holding your bits n pieces. Bathroom (to our disappointment) didn't appear to have been properly cleaned after previous guests. Most annoyingly, there is no where under the bathroom mirror to place cosmetics (this is something I found in many properties, and can't understand it - makes doing make-up etc. impossible). The mattresses are from Ikea, so don't expect a great night's sleep. Worst of all however was the pervasive odour emanating from the bathroom - sewerage/drainage smell - was most unpleasant and never went away. Seems the plumbing might need attention.
Room downstairs was somewhat cave-like, bathroom not cleaned after previous guests and this time there was an all-pervasive smell of stale cigarette smoke coming from air-con, which never went away.
These few things really need attention, otherwise a lovely location, nice apartments and the owner was very friendly and attentive right throughout our stay.

Room Tip: If you want to take in the stunning views, insist on an upstairs room.

Just back from Assos after a week in the boutique studios of Romanza . I cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful "find". The rooms are beautifully decorated in a contemporary style and although our double room was quite compact, the open ceiling up to the rafters gave it a feeling of space. Good shower, comfortable bed and pillows, good size fridge, v good hairdryer, steam iron, clothes airer, air con and safe. The have plans to install wifi in the near future too. The most spectacular views from the balcony (see photos). Lovely warm welcome from Kristos and his daughter, Maria. Very close to centre of village where I would also recommend the family-run Platanos restaurant. If you fancy a walk up to the Venetian castle, take water and don't go in flip flops!! I haven't included any photos of Romanza as the ones on their website are exactly as it is.

We stayed here for nine nights and were sad to leave.
The Studios look over central Assos and the beautiful bay. You can easily get to either in under 2 minutes walk.
The studio was clean and new. The bathroom was immaculate. The bedding and towels were crisp and clean and the bed was very comfortable.

The owners were very warm and helpful, they were more than accommodating.

We highly recommend Romanza Studios awell as Assos and hope to return one day.
