The location of Barbara Studios is perfect; very near to the old town of Rethymno. Panos and Iro are really kind hosts, they made a very warm welcome to us, and they gave us very good suggestions for where to go. And the home-made cakes we got every two days were delicious! We highly recommend this accomodation.

Stayed here for just two nights but it was so perfect that it felt longer. After a very friendly welcome we were surprised by a beautiful room, which had been recently renovated and looked absolutely stunning.I just loved the towels in the bathroom which were folded in animal shapes and there was a delicious treat for us in the fridge.We could have spend here much longer and we will definitely come back some day!

Just back from our fifth visit to Barbara Studios and once again amazed by both the standard of accommodation and the warm welcome we received from Panos and Iro. This couple really know hhow to make you feel at home. Location and decor of the apartments are second to none.

Barbara Studios is well located in a quiet street in the Old Town. We had a balcony which is lovely to sit on for breakfast,etc. The host provided coffee and juice as well and we had a two level space which gave each of us privacy. They are very helpful arranging taxis,etc and places to go.

Great location and a reasonable price and great hosts. The room was spacious, but the shower was small. Be advised that the key fob must be used to turn the electricity on to run the AC, thus the room might not cool down on hot days for 30 minutes or more once the fob is inserted.

Panos and Iro did everything possible to make our three days with them special. Iro knew where we could find an early and hardy breakfast. Panos directed us to the best mezes in town. They have tastefully renovated Iro's family home into a home away from home for their guests.

This was our second stay in Rethymnon, and we shall certainly stay at Barbara Studios when we come again.The building is a beautiful old Venetian house close to the harbour in the Old Town. Our room was spacious and airy, with a bathroom and a private balcony - and the owners, Panos and Iro - took great care to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Despite being so centrally located, the house was very quiet and peaceful, and the comfortable mattresses ensured a good night's sleep.All in all, this was a lovely experience of the homely hospitality for which Cretans are famed, and I would recommend Barbara Studios to anyone.

Ένας υπέροχος χώρος στην καρδιά της πόλης. Πραγματικά σε απόσταση αναπνοής βρίσκεσαι στην παλιά πόλη. Το δωμάτιό ήταν καθαρό, προσεγμένο, περιποιημένο, βολικό και άνετο. Έχει εναν μικρο χώρο για κουζίνα και ένα μπαλκονάκι το οποίο απολαύσαμε και καταχαρήκαμε. Ολοι τους εκεί είναι πολύ ευγενικοί και εξυπηρετικοί. Πρόθυμοι να μας βοηθήσουν, να μας εξηγήσουν, να μας κατατοπίσουν. Η τιμή του δωματίου είναι αρκετά καλή συγκριτικά με άλλα καταλύματα και σχετικά με την τοποθεσία του.

Thank you very much to Iro and Panos for such a friendly, hospitable welcome to Barbara studios! Barbara studios is located right in Rethymno 's old town, a very short walk from the beautiful Venitian harbour. Our room had a mezzanine floor for the bed and a kitchenette/living room as well as a shower room and erandah. There are also lovly shared garden areas to sit in. Most of all we appreciated the helpfulness and welcome from hosts and staff. We would especially recommend visiting Crete outside the tourist season. It is quiet and peaceful but the weather is beautiful.

Our apartment was lovely, with a small balcony. You are in the centre for everything you need!Thank you both once again, we will be coming back to see you.Jayne & Michael from Cyprus

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 the room was very helpful, and we greatly appreciated the recommendations to restaurants where THEY eat, where not only the food is good but the staff is friendly. I also really liked the recycling, and that the electricity in the room turns off every time you leave, since the room key is attached to the socket key. Their home is perfectly located in old Rethymno and we fell absolutely in love with their sweet dog! Thanks again!!!!

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 equipped (wifi, iron, hairdryer, dishes, etc). They left us treats: raki, sweets, etc. --- a much-appreciated gesture! Barabara Studios is in a great location, central yet tucked away so you'll get some rest. Excellent place!

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!!!

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 much preferred this apartment. It is perfect for strolling out to the restaurants in the evening and the beach during the day. Free parking is very close by, we were even collected at midnight by our host as we'd foolishly got lost driving into the port.Rooms have kettles, coffee and little snacks and each day a freshly homemade cake appeared - yummy, as well as a little bottle of really nice raki. The shower room is excellent and stocked with shower gel and shampoo.I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough.

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 the food was first class, the best being next door which was called "Alana's".The apartments had a lovely cool courtyard where you could relax and a lovely roof terrace where you could sit with a nice glass of wine.The apartment was clean and big enough for our six day visit and little goodies like cake and biscuits were left in the room by the owners. If we could find small faults they would be that the room needs a kettle as it's self catering and we had to boil a saucepan for a cup of tea and the towels should be changed more often in the bathroom but apart from that all was fine.We would recommend these apartments to anyone for a visit to Rythimnon. Thanks to Panos and Iro for a lovely stay and their lovely hospitality.

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 us. He helped us with our luggage and introduced us to our room. Orange juice was provided for us everyday, melba toast and condiments, tea and coffee. Freshly baked sweet treats were also left in our kitchenette each day which was lovely when we arrived back in our room in the late afternoon. Panos and Iro's home is absolutely beautiful. The courtyard and entrance is ideallic and has a garden area and great roof terrace. A local map of Rethymnon is provided, with Panos and Iro's personal restaurant recommendations. Our stay was excellent and the facilities were simply amazing. So personal, warming and special. It felt like a Cretan second home (a very luxurious one)!P.s keep an eye out for Panos and Iro's very cute little dog.

Don't hecitate about this place because it as good as perfect can be. The host Panos and his wife are very kind and take very good care to all of there guests. The rooms are cleaned every day and you will get freshly homemade cakes, juice, raki and other useful food basics.They tought a lot about saving energy with different systems which work very well, like an automatically turning of airconditioning in case of an open door. The airco works great by the way, even with 35+ celcius you can make it comfortably cool.The building has a nice garden and roof terras where you have a good view over the town and also can see a lot of stars. The location of Barbara studios is in the centre of Rethymnon very near to 3 good parking lots which cost 8-10 euro's a day and are 24 hours accessible. Old town and the restaurants are like 30 seconds walking. The beach is about 10minutes walking although we went to another more beautiful and less crowded beach called Episkopi 20min driving or with a taxi about 20 euro, also a bus stop is very nearby.Conclusing: almost nothing to complain, the only thing I missed was a candle at the balcony for those beautiful evenings. Just book this place and enjoy a nice relaxing vacation in Rethymnon!

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 find sweets and cakes on your dining table and a fresh juice and raki in your fridge. These treats made every morning even more special! The studio is very well equipped, nicely decorated and with a little balcony. Every night we could sit in our balcony, with a cold raki watching the stars. The studio is also very well located, close to nice restaurants, the old port and the fortezza. One tip, around 20h is the sunset to be enjoyed in the fortezza. If you come to Rethymno, I strongly advise you to stay here and be delighted with the simple pleasures that this little city as to offer.

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 on hand if we needed anything and provided good tips on where to go locally; the room was cleaned spotlessly every day; the fridge was filled up with juice and home-baked goodies daily; and it really felt like we were staying with friends or family instead of in a hotel. The room was slightly old fashioned and the bathroom small, but it was charming and everything worked just fine. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning kept us cool at night. Our balcony faced a sunny rooftop where every evening some cats and kittens came to play and chase each other, and beyond that you could see the sea. We had such a great holiday - thank you to everyone at Barbara Studios! - Helena and Joe

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 floor with views over the town & the sea in the distance. There is also a roof garden with great views. Location is ideal for the Old Town but far enough out not to be noisy. We will definitely book again if we go back to Rethymno.

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, balcony, toilet and shower. On our return a few days later we were given a recently renovated stylish en-suit room combining traditional and modern decor; perfect for our all too short stay.

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 if you have any questions or need anything at all.The one downside to the studio is that it can get a bit loud in the mornings as people ride by on their motorbikes or are toting roller bags on the street. If you're a light sleeper beware.

Just returned from a short break in Rethymno, staying at Barbara Studios. Lovely apartment, with great facilities, in a fantastic location at the heart of the old town, literally a minutes walk from the old harbour & some great restaurants, and 10 minutes from the beautiful Fortezza. Panos & Iro made me feel really welcome, & the local map & info they left me with was very helpful(much more useful than the map in the guidebook!). Iro's sweet treats left in the fridge each day were a guilty pleasure!! They also arranged my taxi transfer from the airport, which was very comfortable & stress free. Would definitely recommend & will stay at Barbara studios again if revisiting Rethymno. Thankyou!!

Well-located near to the port and within a short walk to the bus station, I've stayed here a number of times over recent years. I typically use it as a stopover en route to or from the south coast (bus timings can mean that flight connections aren't always possible in one day). It's always a bonus to my trip as the hosts are so welcoming and generous. I've stayed in different rooms, a single room, double room or studio when with friends, and all of them have been well-furnished and pleasant. Some have balconies, others are inward facing, but I remember enjoying the garden courtyard when I stayed in the single room on the ground floor - lovely!

Panos and Iro (the hosts) were the nicest we met in Greece. They helped to take our bags, to find a place to park the car and made a small snack on the night we arrived (since it was very late). Also, they prepared a small guide of the city and gave useful hints. The room is very big and self-sufficient (you can even cook if you want).You cannot park close to the hotel, since it's in a restricted street. However, Panos will guide you to the closest parking spot where you can leave your car for the stay. You can and should do everything on foot at Rethymno, it's much better. The hotel is very well located. The bed was very small for 2 people (although the room is very big). The shower place is small and so is the curtain (which makes it complicated to take a shower without wetting all the bathroom). In the morning, there is some noise from the houses just beside. And when you arrive, make sure to ask them to give you guidance since you can't reach the entrance by car (restricted street).Even considering those points above, we definitely recommend staying here if coming to the city!

My opinion is very short: the best studios of Rethymno. And the best expression of the Cretan kindness. So I would like to thank Iro&Panos, and Lili, once more for their hospitality during the days we stayed at Barbara. It is our third time there, and I hope not the last, cause we love it. For example, I have never celebrated my wife´s birthday with the manager of my hotel... But Barbara, so clean, so pacific, so friendly, is very different, and we got it. That´s the key: I go and, simply, I enjoy the live.

My wife and I stayed in Barbara Studios Rethymno, without having booked ahead, ie phoning when we arrived in Rethymno. Although not on the premises at the time (It was Cretan Siesta Time), Iro left a family function to greet us, and in fact came out to guide us for the last few hundred metres of our journey. The room was fine, and very well set up for self-catering, with a supermarket and bakery very close by. We had a lovely Balcony where we had our breakfasts, and on a longer stay would have probably used the roof as well. The courtyard is also a delight, offering the benefits of being outdoors, whilst being behind the front door of the premises.The main characteristic of our brief stay though was the level of care and hospitality provided by both Iro and Panos. Their profession is clearly a vocaton to them, and their attention to detail, eg, leaving little treats plus soft drinks in the fridge just helped us to feel very cared for, and all at a very reasonable price. I wish more hotels would strive towards this level of care. Many thanks Iro and Panos.

Only stayed the 2 nights and wish we had stayed longer we enjoyed Rethymnon so much. We had just booked one studio for the 2 nights, but were advised by Panos to take another room , which he gave us at a great price. He was right the 2 rooms worked out well. Panos came out with us to where we had parked the car to make sure it was in the right area due to the road works. We were given a map and really enjoyed wondering round the town, we spent a morning at the fort, and an afternoon swimming in the sea. It was just wonderful, we ate at the restaurant just opposite the door twice it was so good; we were pleased with our choice. Just wished we had stayed longer.

The couple were very friendly and helpful, providing a hand drawn map of the town with colour coded points of information eg ATM, supermarket, etc. The room was large and clean and furnished with attention to detail: the room had complimentary coffee, tea, juice, cake and raki). Really nice location in old town near a supermarket, the harbour, and lots of nice restaurants. The towels were fresh and didn't have that hotel vinegar smell which I loved!! The room also had kitchenette facilities (fridge/mini freezer, cafetière, microwave and stove top hob, crockery and utensils) which were great for storing our bottles of water for the day but had the potential to do more! The not so good sides: en suite toilet was quite small and the shower was also quite small so difficult to move around in. Also we had the street level room so it was a little bit noisy (although the street is not a Main Street by any standard). It was perfect for us and I'd recommend it for both short and long term stays in Rethymnon!

The bed was really comfy and the communal areas were great, particularly the roof terrace, which was brilliant to up to at night. Panos and Iro were perfect hosts, this was the best place we stayed in our 3 weeks in Crete.

La localisation près du port et au coeur de la vielle ville. Nombreux restaurants de qualité à proximité (Alana), suivre les recommandations détaillées des hôtes. Panos est très accueillant et agréable et de très bons conseils. Le studio était calme, avec un charmant balcon, propre et bien équipé. Très bon rapport qualité prix.


Mobilier rustique néanmoins de tout confort.

Situated in the old town Barbara studios has a great location, but also close to the fort and free parking on the sea front. Facilities are good, but especially pleasing was the helpfulness of Iro & Panos. They provided maps and tourist advice, but the drinks and snacks were very welcome in the late summer heat. Would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed the littly balcony with its rooftop views very much. Barbara Studios is very well situated.You have everything you could possibly need within easy walking distance. Iro also supplied us with a map with very good reccommendations.We will definitey be back & most definitely reccommend Barbara Studios to all our travelling friends.

Parce qu'il faut bien trouver quelque chose... La lumière qui passe par la porte d'entrée de la chambre qui peut être gênante pour les gens sensibles à la lumière le matin.

I made reservation to a studio with a balcony as seen in pictures on their site. When I arrived, it turned out to be nothing like that. To start with, the "balcony" was a couple of chairs on a platform by the steps (inside the building). I was told, that I should have known, that not all the rooms look like the ones in the photos. That I should've been more clear of what I want. I don't know how I could have, if I didn't know of all the options. I was really disappointed and sad, given that I had been looking forward to the stay for months. They could see that, and we agreed I didn't have to stay and for compensation needed to pay only a part of the seven nights' stay. But had I been lucky, I would have loved the place. It's mostly really beautiful, the sitting areas and all, and has the enchanting atmosphere of the past centuries. I guess most of the rooms have been renovated and look lovely, as in the photos. In the beginning, also the staff was very friendly, they even came to carry my luggage from the parking place nearby. Also the location of the place is great. I advice you to ask very specifically everything about the room you're to book; you might win the lottery!

What can I say, a perfect stay from start to finish. Beautiful large room with traditional Venetian stone walls and arches, with a large double bed, very well equipped kitchen with cooker/oven, kettle, fridge and toaster, as well as a bathroom. The room was spotless and cleaned every single day, with fresh towels left regularly or on demand if you leave them in the bath. We were greeted to a little selection of teas, coffee, honey, butter, crisp breads, home made brownies, squash and water. The squash was replenished every day and we were always left a little snack - sausage rolls, biscuits, chocolates etc, which was a lovely touch. Wifi is great in the rooms and there is a small library on the upstairs corridor. The rooftop terrace has great views of the Fortezza and the town, and there is a gorgeous garden at the back too. We were in Room 1, right by the front door, so we also had use of a little courtyard. The only thing about having this room is that you could hear the door buzzer and people coming in and out but it wasn't a problem and it was nice to have shuttered windows opening onto the street. The street is quiet yet literally a couple of minutes from the harbour and all the delights of the old town. We had a great welcome from Panos, who is very knowledgable about the old town restaurants if you don't know the place as well as we do! All in all, we can't wait to return for the Rethimno Carnival next year. Efharisto poli Panos ke Iro!

Situated in the old town Barbara studios has a great location, but also close to the fort and free parking on the sea front. Facilities are good, but especially pleasing was the helpfulness of Iro & Panos. They provided maps and tourist advice, but the drinks and snacks were very welcome in the late summer heat. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed 2 weeks in this apartment in the charming old town of Rethymno. The apartment is comfortable and everything there is new. If you would like to stay in the old town where the locals live, this is the right place. One can easily walk to shops, market, restaurants and the promenade, the walk to the town beach takes around 25 min. The only drawback was, that during the hot time the old town remained quite warm even at night, and it was mostly too warm to sleep with open windows or sit on the balcony. However the airconditioning worked fine, both in the living room and in the bedroom. We agree with all the nice things that others have written in their reviews about the manager Panos, will add here that he responded quickly to our e-mails and calls if we had a question, and the cleaning was every 4 days and very good.

Estuvimos en un apartamento bonito, cuidado, limpio. Muy amplio, donde puedes pasar largas estancias cómodamente. La habitación era a pie de calle, en pleno centro, y no se escuchaba nada del exterior. La insonorización era fantástica.La pareja que lo lleva era súper atenta y la verdad es que multiplican por dos el valor de esta habitación. Sólo íbamos a estar una noche y aun así, durante 20 minutos, nos explicaron con un mapa hecho a mano todos los sitios que nos recomendaban. También nos acompañaron a buscar aparcamiento, que no nos costó encontrar a pesar de estar en pleno centro. Todo con una sonrisa y amabilidad excepcional.Además, nos dejaron postres caseros de cortesía, zumo y para poder preparar el desayuno. Está situado en una zona inmejorable, todo a mano. En conjunto una experiencia fantástica (porque lo llamaría experiencia) gracias en muy buena parte a sus propietarios pero también al encanto del lugar, una gran casa con apartamentos y un patio interior luminoso donde los clientes podemos tomar el café, relajarnos y conversar.Si volvemos a Rethymno, sin duda volveremos aquí.

Ho soggiornato per soli 2 giorni, e tanti bastano per capire cos'è la "filoxenia" e come la mettono in pratica qui al Barbara Studios. Ottima e spaziosa stanza in posizione strategica al centro storico di Rethimnon. La strada è abbastanza tranquilla.Iro, il proprietario, ci ha fatto trovare in camera -tutto offerto- del raki (grappa tipica), delle fette biscottate, della marmellata, della ciambella, il necessario per un caffè o un the, una bottiglia grande di succo d'arancia.Ci ha anche fornito una simpaticissima mappa con i posti chiave in cui mangiare, i posti più interessanti e via dicendo.Il giorno dopo, tornati dal mare, ecco altre splendide sorprese: la bottiglia di succo d'arancia (che avevamo finito perchè assetati), era stata riempita nuovamente, inoltre nel frigo c'erano altri due deliziosi dolcetti al cioccolato.La cosa che mi ha lasciato di stucco è che non solo avevano pulito la stanza, ma avevano addirittura messo in ordine le nostre magliette che, stanchi per il viaggio, avevamo lasciato un po' sul divano in disordine, e avevano persino messo in ordine le boccette di shampo e bagnoschiuma! Ci siamo sentiti un po' in colpa per essere stato un po' disordinati!Insomma, tutto di una gentilezza squisita, e di una qualità elevatissima rispetto al prezzo che è assolutamente contenuto.10 e lode!

Cette dernière possède un cachet attachant où l'on se sent tout de suite bien. L'appartement est très propre, la literie est très bonne et le coin kitchinette permet de se restaurer. Pour le petit déjeuner, biscotte, beurre, confiture, yaourt et jus d'orange sont mis à disposition dans la cuisine.

Η τοποθεσία του δε θα μπορούσε να είναι πιο ιδανική αφού από την μια πόρτα βρισκόμασταν στο λιμάνι επάνω κ στα πιο συμπαθητικά καφενεδάκια της πόλης κ από την άλλη πόρτα, στα δύο βήματα ήμασταν στο κεντρικότερο σημείο της. Το τρίκλινο δωμάτιο με την ιδιωτική αυλίτσα ενδείκνυται για παρέες κ χαλάρωση οποιαδήποτε ώρα της μέρας. Είναι μεγάλο, ευρύχωρο, δροσερό κ πολύ βολικό ακόμα κι αν μένουν τρεις γυναίκες μαζί! Η Αργυρώ κ ο Πάνος δε θα μπορούσαν να είναι πιο ευγενικοί κ πιο εξυπηρετικοί. Μας σύστησαν τα καλύτερα μέρη για φαγητό κ ποτό ανάλογα πάντα με τον τρόπο διασκέδασης του καθενός. Μείναμε μόνο ένα βράδυ αλλά υποσχεθήκαμε ότι θα ανανεώσουμε την επίσκεψη μας στο Ρέθυμνο κ φυσικά χωρίς καμία σκέψη για το που θα μείνουμε.

Arrivati a Rethymno abbiamo prenotato al Barbara Studios confortati dalle ottime recensioni e dall'ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo della struttura. Arrivati all'Hotel, abbiamo trovato ad accoglierci il cordialissimo Panos, che gestisce la struttra insieme alla moglie Iro. La nostra sistemazione era in uno studios ricavato in un piano seminterrato meravigliosamente ristrutturato e dotato di tutti i comfort, fra i quali, oltre ad aria condizionata e wi fi anche una cucina attrezzata per fare colazione o volendo cucinare.Insomma, un mini appartamento a tutti gli effetti, con un bagno molto spazioso.Se alle caratteristiche degli alloggi ed alla strategicità della posizione (in centro e dietro il porto vecchio)si somma la disponibilità dei gestori, è facile capire perchè io consigli il Barbara Studios come il miglior posto in cui alloggiare a Rethymno.

Nos alojamos 2 noches en Barbara Studios y desde que nos recibió Paros, el trato fue excelente. Nos entregó un mapa hecho por ellos con todo tipo de recomendaciones (restaurantes, bares, panadería, etc)En cuanto apareció Iros y le dijimos "Hola", se dibujó una sonrisa en su cara y empezó a conversar con nosotros en español. Cada día, tuvo algún " dulce " detalle.El lugar es un antiguo palacete veneciano y nuestra habitación era muy amplia. Por las mañanas, hacía tanto calor que no podíamos disfrutar de nuestro balcón particular pero pudimos compensarlo desayunando en la azotea compartida con excelentes vistas a la fortaleza.Paros e Iros, forman una pareja increíble de anfitriones y ojalá podamos volver , sin duda, repetiríamos con ellos.

I booked Barbara Studios over the internet, because I liked the way the setting and the rooms looked in the photos. The moment I got there I felt like I was part of the family or a good friend visiting, this is how nice Panos and Argyro and Argyro's parents were.The room was fantastic, spacious, well presented, done up with great taste and very very relaxing.I should add that there was housekeeping service daily. In a few words it was a lot more than I expected. Plus Barbara Studios are in walking distance from practically everything in the old part of the city of Rethymno.If I am to go to Rethymno again, which I hope will happen, I will most definitely do myself a favour and look for a room there, hoping that there is one there for me.

Idéalement situé au coeur de la vieille ville de Rethymnon (station de bus à 10min à pieds, forteresse à 2 pas et vieux port à quelques enjambées), ce havre de paix rendra votre séjour inévitablement des plus agréables. Dans cette très belle et calme pension de famille, appartement grand, propre avec balcon privatif nous concernant (idéal pour profiter de la fin de journée). Sans oublier l'accueil extrêmement chaleureux de Panos et de sa compagne Iro. Très avenants et disponibles, ils vous gâtent de petites attentions (jus de fruit dans le frigo, pâtisserie maison et tartines pour le petit déjeuner, conseils (judicieux et pertinents) de restaurants (Alana, quel regal !!) et de découvertes à faire dans les alentours / on a adoré Preveli et Plakias sur la côte sud...). Deux sourires qui font au chaud au coeur, que l'on est triste de quitter et qui donnent envie de revenir. On aimerait être reçus ainsi partout. Alors un grand merci à vous Panos et Iro.

I was not sure what to expect from Barbara Studios before we arrived. I thought the rooms would be pretty basic, however, the room we stayed in (6) was lovely - spacious and modern. It was also cleaned every day and a small piece of cake and some juice were left in the fridge (things you would not expect when paying for self-catering). There is no hob or space for preparing food in the room, which was not a problem for us as there is an abundance of amazing tavernas, restaurants and fast food places within walking distance. Just be clear that you are paying for a room only. The hosts will give you a map of the town with personal recommendations, and we found them to be helpful whenever we needed to ask for advice. In summary, a great place to stay with hospitable hosts, if you a young couple or travelling with friends and are looking for room only accommodation.

Man fühlte sich wie ein Teil der Familie. Im Zimmer wartete Raki auf uns und jeden Tag eine neue Köstlichkeit von Iro. Die Zimmer waren sauber und schön. Wir waren total begeistert!

Die Studios Barabra befinden sich ein bisschen versteckt fast mitten in der Altstadt von Rethymno. Unser Zimmer war wunderschön eingerichtet, ziemlich groß und sehr sauber. Die Vermieter sind unglaublich nett und hilfsbereit. Es gab rein nichts zu beanstanden.

Panos and Iro (the hosts) were the nicest we met in Greece. They helped to take our bags, to find a place to parkt the car and made a small snack on the night we arrived (since it was very late). Also, they prepared a small guide of the city and gave useful hints. The room is very big and self-sufficient.


The bed was very small for 2 people (although the room is very big). The shower place is small and so is the curtain (which makes it complicated to take a shower without wetting all the bathroom). In the morning, there is some noise from the houses just beside. And when you arrive, make sure to ask them to give you guidance since you can't reach the entrance by car (restricted street).

We stayed 9 nights and enjoyed it so much. The room was spotlessly clean, every day. It was very comfortable, including the bed, and beach towels were a bonus for us. Panos and Iro were wonderful hosts, their map of restaurants and places to go was a fantastic resource. Every question was answered with a great suggestion, restaurants, sight-seeing, beaches...The building is lovely, with a nice roof terrace, and a great location close to the centre of the old town. Yet really quiet and peaceful.We never had problems parking, and were greeted everyday with a homemade sweet treat in the afternoon, along with orange juice and raki. We really recommend Barbara Studios, we will be back! Thanks again!

My husband and I stayed here during two nights as part of our trip around the island. The staff is really nice and they do not mind to spend time with you explaining the city and chating with you. They also suggest good places to eat and visit which we appreciated. The building is really nice and the balcony at the room is good for relaxing. We also loved to cuddle the sweet Lilly!But the reason I am giving 3 points instead of more is because the matress. We found it extremely unconfortableWe could feel every spring in our back and was not firm at all. For us this is one of the most important things in an acommodation. We woke up several times during the night because of this.

The thing you realize straight away once you step in these studios is that this is not the average business oriented hotel. This is a place where the owners want you to spend a great time. They spent almost an hour with us providing maps, suggesting restaurants, giving tips on bars and cafe. I almost felt after few hours that I was a local. The studios are very well looked after, clean and fresh (the summer can be hot in Greece but the rooms were really cool)Highly suggested (tip: booked directly on their website, cheaper)

The room was quite, even though it is based right in the Centre of the Old City with just few minutes away from bars, restaurants and the little markets. I travel a lot and am usually too lazy to recommend things, but we stayed a whole week, so we can tell and it was all in all just a pleasure!!

Couldn't have asked for more - excellent hosts, brilliant location close to all amenities and in the old town, i.e. away from the somewhat trashy touristy trap extending eastwards. In summer the air conditioning seems necessary at night (to folks used to colder climes!) as the prevailing wind tends not to reach the apartments. Would recommend to business and recreational travellers alike.

In this studio you can be a part of the cretan live and explore the old town of Rethymnon just a few steps away. So the location is perfect.The apartment is lovely, very clean an perfect for 2 people. The owners are wonderful! The help you with everythin you need. They also gave us a self-made map of Rethymnon with all the must-do's, highlights, restaurants, supermarkets,... so nice :-)In my opinion it is just perfect! Go there, you won't regret it

Ottima location a un passo dal lungo mare nel cuore del centro storico di Rethymno. Gli appartamenti su tre piani hanno spazi comuni ricavati in un contesto suggestivo e curato. Noi abbiamo preso un appartamento da 2 e uno da 3 persone, che prevede una piccola mansarda con letto matrimoniale (un pò calda ma fornita di ventilatore e ac) e, al piano di sotto, un comodo divano letto, angolo cucina, fornito di tutto l'indispensabile per la prima colazione (compresi the, caffè, merendine e succhi) e piccolo terrazzo con un tavolino e due sedie; forse il bagno, e soprattutto la doccia, è un poco piccolo, ma tutto è pulito e molto curato. Fantastica l'accoglienza della giovane coppia che li gestisce e che ci ha dato numerose informazioni per sfruttare al meglio la nostra permanenza. Prenotate direttamente sul loro sito che vi faranno un ottimo prezzo! Presente parcheggio convenzionato al porto, anche se si trovano facilmente posti auto free nelle vicinanze.Consigliatissimo!

Wonderful welcoming and hospitable hosts. Everyday there were more lovely treats of food and drink left for us. We had an upstairs room with a spacious sleeping area and kitchenette. We loved the narrow balcony overlooking the roof tops toward the sea and mountains.


The bed was too hard and the mattress is due for replacement. The bathroom was very small and the shower curtain too short to keep water off the floor.

We arrived without prebooking. Iro proposed us another location since they were fully booked at their main premises. It turned out a brand new studio for ourselves in the centre. Additional to that we got a short but to-the-point crash course in Rethimno restos/bars/places-of-interest etc. Later on during our 5 days stay the service remained equally good.

Barbara Studios is a beautiful property in Old Town to give you the authentic feel of Greece. They have excellent service and excellent location to all of the beautiful sights, shops, and restaurants in the Old Town Rethymno. The property is beautiful, and Panos and Iro will greet you and spoil you with their kindness for your entire stay. They speak English very well, and provide a detailed hand-written map of the surrounding area including their recommendations. Panos personally went over the map with us, and provided Raki, orange juice, and baked goods in the kitchen. You will definitely feel at home and part of their family, and lucky to have found such a beautiful, hidden treasure! I highly recommend this property, and would love to come back and stay longer! Thank you, Panos and Iro, for such wonderful hospitality!

I stayed here with my partner for our 2 week holiday in Crete. We received a very warm welcome from Panos and Iro. They were both very helpful and provided good local information. Our room was also cleaned daily and we had coffee, French toast and a home made sweet every day. There was also a free bottle of raki in our room.The room was comfortable and spacious. Our room was up 2 flights of stairs but ground floor accommodation seemed to be an option. It is a very central location and convenient for the shops, tavernas and bus station. There is a beautiful roof terrace and garden that you can sit out in. The roof terrace has great views over the city...There isn't a pool at the hotel but you can go to the beach. There is a lovely one about 15 minutes walk away. I would recommend this hotel as a great base for exploring crete.

My girlfriend and me had just a couple of days off to travel and as such could only spend one night in Rethymnon, but as soon as we had arrived at Barbara Studios and met the staff, we wished we could stay at least half a week. I had asked if it was possible to arrange some flowers for the room, to surprise my girlfriend, and they happily obliged, adding some extra touches that made us feel very, very welcome. The room was clean, bright and comfortable, with a luxurious rain shower and fantastic bed. The outside areas were perfect for having a coffee or just reading a book, and the staff were joyful, interested and interesting, and gave us a very practical little map with their personal suggestions for food, drinks and coffee, three of which we tried and none of which disappointed in the slightest. I absolutely recommend this place and would stay there again whenever I'm in Crete.

И так приятно было обнаружить "комплименты" от хозяев в апартаментах. В номере очень чисто, убираются ежедневно.Рядом с отелем много магазинов, хороших кафе-ресторанов, до пляжа рукой подать.Wi-fi правда слабенький, но мы покупали симкарту местного оператора, и в основном этим мобильным интернетом пользовались.

The hosts were very friendly and genuine, and the place itself was lovely. The room was spacious, and had all conceivable facilities. The rooms are located in the central part of the old city, a very short walk from all major attractions. Panos and Iro took the time to make sure I had everything I needed, and made recommendations about cafes, restaurants, etc. And the recommendations were good! I live in Greece, and I can honestly say that the best coffee I've had in this country was in Rethymno, on their recommendation.


The only (very small) drawback to the room was that the wifi has a login system which meant my phone kept logging out at annoying times.

Loved the owners, the location, the warm welcome. It's very much their family home and felt like staying with friends. Recommend the higher floor (roof top views to the sea on the distance) - walk-up so don't take heavy suitcases. Lots of little personal touches in the large room; recommendations/map as to where to eat, what to see etc. Close to everything: harbor, old town - restaurants, bars. Easy street parking (no need to use the expensive public car park).


Can't think of anything.

A luglio abbiamo trascorso qualche giorno di vacanza presso questa splendida location, accolti e coccolati dalla giovane coppia di proprietari. Sono stati carinissimi, di una gentilezza unica, ci hanno fatto sentire proprio come a casa. All'arrivo ci hanno consegnato una cartina dell'isola ( con ottimi consigli sulle spiagge più belle e caratteristiche) e una piantina di Rethymno con tutte le indicazioni su come muoversi in città, quali attrazioni visitare, dove trovare ristoranti, bar, caffè, supermercati... Inoltre , ogni giorno ci lasciavano in camera un dolce tipico fatto in casa, una bottiglia di succo di frutta, fette biscottate, marmellata... insomma il necessario per una veloce colazione o per gustare un piccolo snack al rientro da una giornata al mare. Ottima posizione per godersi a pieno il centro della città vecchia.

Ich bin begeistert und sehr froh das ich mich für dieses Hotel entschieden habe. Ich habe ein Zimmer im 2 Stock bekommen, mit kleinem balkon, Doppelbett auf einem Hochbett und zwei einzelnen Betten unten die je nach Bedarf von Gastgeber hergerichtet werden.Zur Begrüßung steht auf einem kleinen Esstisch eine Flasche Raki und Snacks bereit, in der Kitchenette gibt es Eine Kaffeemaschine, einen Kühlschrank und einen Mini Herd sowie einen Toaster. Frisch gepresster Orangensaft und Handgemachte Süßigkeiten warten darauf verspeist zu werden. Das Hotel hat einen schönen Innenhof, in dem ersten Stock wohnen die Besitzer selbst und auf dem Dach wurde eine Dachterrasse erbaut um die Sonne zu genießen.Kaum aus der Einganstür raus steht man in der Altstadt, ob zur linken Seite Mojo Burger oder ein paar Schritte weiter etliche andere Restaurants, hier ist man stets gut Bewirtet.Fussläufig zu erreichen liegen verschiedene Parkplätze wo man sein mietwagen getrost abstellen kann, in den kleinen Gassen möchte man als Tourist wohl eher nicht parken. Alles in allem bin ich sehr begeistert und kann nur eine Empfehlung aussprechen.

Dejaros aconsejar por ella, acertaréis seguro. Es una persona extraordinaria. Incluso nos obsequió con muffin caseros y galletas. Las instalaciones son perfectas, el estudio amplio, cómodo... Sin duda para repetir.

lPension de famille, gite, hôtel? C'est le lieu idéal pour découvrir Réthymnon.Très bien placé dans la vieille ville, à proximité de parkings gratuits et des commerces et restaurants. Les couchages sont de bonne qualité, nous y avons dormi au calme.Iro et Panos vous accueille avec chaleur et gentillesse. Le sourire est de rigueur dans cette jolie pension.Iro nous a accompagnées à notre arrivée jusqu'au parking gratuit et aidé à transporter nos bagages jusqu'à l'hôtel. Iro a descendu nos bagages sous une pluie battante le jour de notre départ. Une petite bouteille de Raki nous a été offerte et nous avions le plaisir de déguster chaque jour de délicieuses pâtisseries maison.Le lieu est très propre, le ménage est fait tous les jours, chemise de nuit et serviettes joliment pliées sur nos lits!!!il est possible de prendre un café avec les propriétaires des lieux sur leur terrasse pleine de charme. Une autre grande terrasse aménagée de tables est également disponible au dernier étage pour y prendre des repas.Adresse à partager sans modération.Merci encore à Iro et Panos

Barbara is a very specific place. Not only because of it's appearance and charm but also because of the hosts (Panos & Iro) who are genuine people doing work they clearly enjoy.We stayed in a loft apartment and a ground floor studio (had to return after 1 week of travelling) and both rooms were exactly what we needed - clean, spacious enough and with a balcony and a beautiful shared patio respectively. As mentioned in previous reviews, raki was topped up daily - very nice gesture. Whilst the house was presumably full it was fairly quiet so if you are after a party place I would suggest to look elsewhere. Great value for money.Thanks guys, we will be back.

Me and my boyfriend stayed in studio number 14 for 3 nights last week.We have to say that Barbara studios is very well located, less than 5 min away on foot from everything you want to see/do and you have a free parking 600m away from them. Furthermore, all their tips were valuable.Also, it s a family run business, the owners are very nice and helpful. We had a different treat every morning waiting for us. And the studio was clean and nicely decorated. These are the reasons why we are giving them a 4 out of 5.The only thing that was complicated for us was the lack of soundproofing. We could hear absolutely everything, every single noise coming from the hallway and the other studios around and above us, which made our sleep and rest difficult the first 2 nights. The last night was OK , I suppose the guests had left already because it was quiet.So all in all, and this is just our opinion, we recommend the place, we liked it, however, if you are sensitive to noise and have trouble sleeping, this might not be the best choice. Apart from that it was great.

Barbara Studios is well-located in Rethymo old town and the couple that runs it is Greek hospitalility at its best. They made our Rethymo stay memorable by going out of their way to make us feel welcome and to make sure we enjoyed our visit. They helped us with parking, getting around the area, treated us to some delicious homemade baked goods, and mapped out on paper some excellent restaurants based on our personal taste. The Barbara Studio accomodations met our every need. Our room suite was well-kept, clean, and reasonably priced. Wish we could have stayed longer. I consider it a highlight of my trip to Crete.

Later on we were given some sweets his wife had baked. Would definitely recommend to anyone - also really cheap for where it was and how nice the room was!

We are a young couple and we spent two weeks at BarbaraStudios in July. This amazing place is located in a ideal position, very close to the small and romantic city center and not far from the seaside. The apartments upstairs with balcony are very nice and cozy, from ours we even had a beautiful sea view from the balcony. The great hospitality of the place is due to the love and effort of Panos and Iro, the incredibly careful and friendly couple running the place, who not only provide clean confortable and really nice accomodation rooms but also make that extra mile for making you feel part of the family. One example is given by the delicious and original treats that Iro freshly bakes every day for all the guests. They are always glad to answer any question or give some advices for going around the city and the island. We really enjoyed very much our stay at BarbaraStudios and will definitely return next summer!

La posizione centrale della struttura facilmente raggiungibile e con disponibilità di parcheggio gratuito a poca distanza. In ogni caso la parte più positiva del viaggio è stata l'accoglienza e l'ospitalità di Iro e Panos, i proprietari, che fanno sentire i propri ospiti come se fossero a casa loro. Consigliamo caldamente la struttura per chi desidera visitare la regione di Rethymnon e la parte Ovest dell'isola.

Es lo primero que te dice Panos, y se cumple. Es una casa grande con pequeño jardín y terraza donde, además de vivir ellos, tienen varios estudios turísticos. Estos estudios son amplios, sencillos, con todo lo necesario parar cocinar.Están en el medio de todo.Te dan la bienvenida con pasteles y Raki. También te proporcionan un plano"personalizado", o sea, con los lugares donde a ellos les gusta ir. Iro es una aventajada estudiante de español. Desde aquí les damos las gracias por su hospitalidad.

Avendo letto le recensioni molto positive abbiamo scelto di soggiornare, purtroppo per una sola notte, da Barbara Studios. E, stata una scelta azzeccatissima. Siamo stati accolti da Iro, la giovane e simpatica proprietaria che ci ha spiegato come muoverci per visitare la città mettendoci a disposizione una cartina su cui erano segnati i siti principali da visitare, i bar, i supermercati, la farmacia ecc.. Nella nostra camera aveva preparato un piattino con 2 fette di ottima torta al cioccolato, una bottiglia di succo d'arancia, una bottiglietta di raki e fette biscottate,marmellata,burro, the per la prima colazione.La casa è molto particolare e comoda per visitare Rethymnon.

Die Lage des Babara Studios ist einfach perfekt, Restaurants, Supermärkte und der Strand und Hafen sind in nur wenigen Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar. Zu Beginn haben wir einen Stadtplan von unseren Gastgebern erhalten mit guten Tipps zu Restaurants, Apotheken und den Wochenmärkten. Barbara Studios bietet zwar offiziell kein Frühstück an, aber wir bekamen jeden Tag eine Flasche O-Saft, leckere selbstgebackene Küchlein von unserer Gastgeberin, Salz, gemahlener Kaffee stand auch immer bereit, 2x Marmelade und 2x Butter und "Zwieback" (das lieben die Kretaner). Eine kleine Flasche Raki stand zu Beginn auch bereit, auch dieser wurde wieder aufgefüllt. Wir wurden herzlich begrüßt und unsere Gastgeber waren immer für ein Gespräch zu haben. Insgesamt haben wir uns richtig wohl, fast wie zu hause gefühlt. Unsere Gastgeber waren immer ansprechbar und unser Doppelzimmer wurde täglich sauber gemacht, die Ausstattung war einfach aber liebevoll und ausreichend. Bettwäsche und Handtücher wurden auch häufiger, als wie beschrieben einmal die Woche gewechselt. Wir haben nichts auszusetzen und würden diese nette Unterkunft immer wieder weiterempfehlen.

La struttura, situata nel cuore del centro storico dell'incantevole città di Rethimno, è molto accogliente, curata nei minimi particolari, pulita e confortevole. Si respira subito un'aria di famiglia. La giovane coppia che la gestisce, Iro e Panos, sono molto amichevoli, ci hanno accolto con simpatia, fornendo subito tutte le indicazioni utili per rendere la nostra permanenza ancora più piacevole: i ristoranti migliori, i luoghi di interesse, i percorsi per raggiungere spiagge e negozi... Ad attenderci in camera (spaziosa, tranquilla e fornita di tutto il necessario per cucinare) abbiamo trovato un buonissimo dolce e una bibita fresca, rinnovati ogni giorno. Appena arrivate abbiamo notato come anche gli altri ospiti fossero a loro agio, chiacchierando amichevolmente con i proprietari nel suggestivo ingresso all'aperto, arredato con poltrone, piante e fontanelle. Alla partenza, dopo solo due giorni, ci siamo salutati come vecchi amici, con la promessa di tornare ancora. Veramente consigliatissimo!

The location of the hotel was really good, the room was big and was equiped with a full small kitchen. Owner was really nice to us and made sure our stay was going well. The indoor gardens were lovely! At our arrival, they gave us a hand written map with some good restaurants and places to go. Also, they gave us home made treats everyday.


They didn't change the sheets during our four nights stay.

The place we'd just left had been lousy and the word "studio" in the name of our next destination, for some reason, didn't heighten my expectations. I stepped in warily, through the back door, and was greeted by a jovial man who, extending his hand, promptly introduced himself: Panos (that's his name) has that talent, quite rare I think, of being so open, genuine and kind, that in a matter of seconds you feel as though you'd been close friends for years, or family. All in all, I've known him and his wife Iro - because Barbara Studios isn't a hotel but a family house where the couple lives - for only a few days, but to me, however naive as that may sound or even be, they're friends. Panos explained to me that this used to be an old Venetian house and showed me some architectural details, while offering interesting insight on Rethymnon, Cretan life and many other things (I only forgot to ask why gift shops in that part of Crete seem to all be selling wooden penises...). Onto the rooms: ours was rather big, comfortable, very clean, with plenty of space for your stuff; the bathtub drain, unlike what you often see in that part of the world, was not clogged, the water, hot and cold, was flowing perfectly, and last but not least, you don't have to put the toilet paper in a dreadful little bin usually provided for that purpose, a local habit I personally have trouble to observe. Special care was given to the bath towels, delicately folded into swans, and each day, after the housemaid left, cakes and raki would be waiting on the table - free of charge, yes. Panos gave us a map indicating all the places to visit, such as the Venetian fortress, and good, traditional restaurants: Kyria Maria, for instance, where you get excellent dolmadakia, Erophili, Alana, etc. If there's anything, you can trust your hosts to help you in every way possible: I had, for example, forgotten stuff in a previous hotel we'd left in a rush in a different town, and Panos went out of his way to arrange things with them and brought it back to me later in the day.It's not possible for me to overstate how nice, caring, genuine and generous Iro and Panos have been, and our stay at Barbara Studios was certainly one of the highlights of our trip to Crete - perhaps the best, only time will tell. Indeed a great experience, very highly recommended!

As soon as we arrived at the Hotel we were made to feel right at home. We were offered a beautifully decorated, clean, quiet and comfy room with view on a charming terrace. The location was perfect. In the old town close to the harbour and at walking distance from pretty much everywhere (and important 10 minutes from bus station) . Service was more than excellent at the hotel, special mention to the yummy homemade cake prepared and offered to us by Ero everyday!!!. Seemed like Ero and Panos (owners) simply could not do enough for you. They were so friendly and welcoming, that every time we came and went, it was almost like coming in and out of a friend's house. Everything was excellent from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. If you're in Crete, stay here - you won't regret it!

The host couple, Panos and Iro, were very friendly, warm, and helpful! Upon arrival, they acquainted us with Rethymnon by explaining a map with all their favorite restaurants, bars, and landmarks (including ATMs, bus station, beaches) annotated. They always left a fresh homemade treat for us in our kitchenette as a lovely snack to enjoy in the flowering courtyard or on our little porch. In addition, the couple made themselves available to us and were happy to provide beach towels, umbrellas, and help us with luggage, taxis, etc. The location was hard to beat, just a couple minute walk away from the Old Tow Center, the Venetian harbor, and a ton of fantastic restaurants, and a twelve minute walk from the bus station, New Town, and some of the sandy beaches. I would highly recommend it and would love to return!


If you have trouble with stairs, be sure to ask which level you will be staying on as the stairs can be steep and there are no elevators. Our beds were fairly hard, but I have few complaints.

The couple that runs Barbara Studios went out of their way to make us welcome! They recommended places to eat based on our personal tastes, helped us with parking and getting around the area, treated us to some delicious homemade baked goods, and made us feel so welcome. The accommodations were very nice and well located. Highly recommend for an enjoyable Rethymno stay and superb Greek hospitality.


No complaints whatsoever. Would love to come back and stay longer.

Everything! Immediately after we booked, we received an email from Iron and Panos asking what time we expected to arrive and giving useful information about location, parking etc. When we arrived, we were given coffee and had a good chat with Panos. Our room was available early and was ideal. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable with lots of thoughtful touches eg toiletries, tea and coffee, orange juice, raki, cookies...... The studios are in a lovely old building which has been sympathetically renovated. There is also a lovely little courtyard garden. The property is convenient for everything Rethymno has to offer yet is very peaceful. There are so many places to eat drink, shop, be entertained, the list would be endless. This would definitely be our number one choice for our next stay in Rethymno.

Abbiamo passato 10 giorni presso Iro e Panos, i due gentilissimi proprietari. Devo dire che meglio di così non si poteva essere trattati. Camera pulitissima, dotata di cucinotto anch'esso pulito con stoviglie ed elettrodomestici funzionanti e ben tenuti. Il bagno piccolo ma comunque igienico. Condizionatore efficiente e letti comodi. Quello che cmq fa davvero la differenza è la disponibilità dei gestori e le loro premure. Dolcetti e liquore nel frigo tutti i giorni, mappa della città con i posti da loro provati e quant'altro. A noi han prestato asciugoni e ombrellone per la spiaggia, vicina a 10 minuti a piedi e l'ultimo giorno, avendo il volo in tarda serata ci hanno fatto depositare i bagagli e messo a disposizione un bagno con doccia ed asciugamani puliti così da poterci far godere appieno dell'ultima giornata fi vacanza. Insomma, bravi e davvero consigliatissimo!!!

A lovely touch much appreciated was a large bottle of fresh orange squash in fridge and chocolate biscuits made by the host. Also all toiletries you need and fresh coffee, tea, sugar, milk and biscuits. Tv and Toaster! Would definitely recommend.

The outdoor environment is very cozy too. It is a very quiet place although it is placed in the old town. The owner Panos is an amazing person. He will provide you with a map with all the necessary tips. Do not miss it. It is value for money and a nice place to be!

En de vriendelijkheid en gastvrijheid van Panos en Iro is echt bijzonder. Daarbij zijn ze een bron van waardevolle informatie. En na een dagje stadten is 's avonds laat relaxen op het dakterras puur genieten! Niet twijfelen, doen dus!

Wonderful stay. Friendly owners, great location, and a building and room with character right in the middle of old town. I look forward to returning to Rethymno and Barbara Studios in the future! Really handy for the bus station, the fort, the old town, and the harbour. Comfy bed, clean and spacious room with character and a balcony overlooking the rooftops to the sea.

It's like coming home with warm welcome by the owners. We received a detailed map of best restaurants, tavernas etc. Good location in old town. Just a short walk from Fortezza and Venetian harbor. The owners are always eager to give any advice you need.

We have stayed only one night, so we didn't have time enough to enjoy all of the place. However, we have been welcomed by Iro, Barbara's daughter, who was so kind to bring us a cold beer as we told her we were tired and thirsty after many hours on the road. She also gave us a map with many suggestions of restaurants. Wow for the sweets in the refrigerator and other things like juice, coffee and even raki ! We appreciated the location in the old town : just a few minutes from the sea, the places to visit and excellent restaurants to enjoy the sunset. It was the 1st and only place we found a recycling bin outside our room, (stayed in 11 different places in greek islands).

Stayed for 10 nights and were looking for a more homely experience than resort hotels can offer ... Panos and Iro definitely delivered this! Good value and in the heart of the lovely old town which is the best area to be based. About 15 min walk to main beach- avoid the first few rows of umbrellas which cost 9 euros, the darker green umbrellas a little further along are free but best to buy a drink from the restaurant which runs them to avoid out staying your welcome! Prevali trip recommended by Panos well worth it, as was Imbros gorge which is beautiful and not as much of a tourist haven as Samaria gorge. Rethymnon is a very good base from which to explore the island by car. Restaurants recommended by Iro all good, also Thavma for something a bit different http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g189421-d4060295-Reviews-Thavma_Coffee_Drinks_Cretan_food-Rethymnon_Rethymnon_Prefecture_Crete.html

Had picked Barbara Studios through previous reviews and I was not disappointed. From the moment Panos opened the door (a fairly non descript door!) and welcomed me to his home "compound" I was so pleased that this was where I had booked! The location is excellent - right in the old town. The entrance opens up to a wonderful courtyard with various types of accommodation and various courtyards all available to be used (and depending on where the sun was I used a few!). Panos gave me a map on which his wife iro had written many tips - cafes, bars, restaurants, sites..... I tried a number of these and enjoyed all. My studio apartment was well set out, small balcony over-looking one of the courtyards and small kitchenette with various foods/drinks provided by Iro including some freshly made cake. If you are only after a beach holiday then you may want to be closer to the beach - but I wanted a mix - and it was great.

Our second stay here was just as great as the first one! Do not miss this place: You will get the most thoughtful and helpful hosts, and the place is simply fantastic. We had this lovely appartment with a fully equipped kitchen and a small balcony, and each days we were given a small treat, like muffins, a special cake, etc... Barbara Studios is situated near the Venetian Harbour and all interesting places are within walking distance. This is one of the best places ever found while travelling Crete. We will be back!

Iro and Panos are absolutely lovely hosts. From the minute we walked into the courtyard and met Iro, we knew we were in for a treat! We received the sweetest hand labelled map of the old town and the room was complete with special treats, including raki.The space is within steps of the sea, restaurants and night life, yet is a quiet and calm oasis. We had a gorgeous little balcony for breakfasts and late night chats, and access to communal courtyards and a rooftop patio. You cannot ask for more!

We arrived yesterday having not booked anywhere but had briefly read reviews about the studios and passed the entrance to them whilst trying to find a hotel. We had been into many 'boutique' hotels in the old town but the welcome was somewhat lack lustre. So we decided to ring the doorbell to the Barbara studios and so very glad we did, nowhere had been more welcoming and friendly as this place and after being offered coffee we were lucky to get the last room, an inside studio. With all the amenities you need, the beds/pillows are clean and comfy, the area quiet and really there isn't anything more you need. Nothing is too much trouble and the service is truly genuine from the lovely Iro & Panos and her parents. We will leave tomorrow with memories of a lovely Greek family who welcome strangers as if they are friends. Thank you :-) Vicky & Paul

We had a fabulous one night stay at the Barbara Studios late in April. We had a studio on the ground floor which overlooked a quiet courtyard, nicely shaded. Spacious and comfortable and right in the heart of the old town, this little hideaway was managed by a wonderfully helpful couple, who supplied us with restaurant tips and a great map. A happy and friendly place to stay with homemade cake given to us as a treat on arrival. Rethymnon is a great town to visit and where better to be than in the heart of the old town, within easy reach of the shops and restaurants. Easy parking nearby. We will definitely return.

We read the reviews before we booked these studios and from our experience we would have to say they were very accurate. We were greeted warmly by Panos on our arrival and he made us feel right at home. The studio we had was lovely and the little treats left for us were much appreciated and enjoyed. The rooms were spotless and there was plenty of hot water. Although we were right in the old town with the bars,restaurants and shops close by there was very little noise. We have booked to stay here again in June.

We stayed at Barbara Studios with 3 couples, and all really enjoyed our stay there. Even the small rooms are very spacious. The apartments were cleaned every day and a small treat left each day for the guests, which was a nice addition. The location is perfect and the hosts are very helpful. The map that they give to guests with restaurant recommendations is great. We would plan a trip to Rethymnon again just to stay here!

Perfect location in old town Rethymno, close to the buzzing city life and beaches and still Barbara Studios is a peacefull and quiet paradise. True, it may not be a 5 star luxury, but who needs a swimming pool when you have the whole sea in front of you. And Iro & Panos will take the best care ever of you and your needs. You will want to come back to Rethymno just because of Barbara Studios :)

I can thoroughly recommend these apartments. Delightful architecture, full of character, as you can see from the pictures. The people who run it are so helpful, making sure you have everything you need. You can mix with travellers from right around the world, or keep yourself to yourself if you prefer. The attractive old town is right on your doorstep and the scenic harbour is at the end of the street.The heat of August was a bit too much for the air conditioning unit to cope with, so a fan would have been very welcome, but other than that it was just great .

We had great time staying here and returned for a night on our return journey. The location was ideal and the young couple managing the place were really friendly and helpful, showing us all the places to visit and eat. There was a supermarket just round the corner so that we could make our own breakfast when we wanted to. Facilities were good and even ground coffee and a coffeemaker in each room. We would definitely come here again.

Abbiamo alloggiato presso Barbara Studios per 2 notti e siamo stati molto bene.L'appartamento era ben tenuto, ben pulito e ben fornito.Le camere ben pulite.Non avevamo la colazione, ma i proprietari ci hanno messo a disposizione:fette biscottare,marmellate,succo d'arancio,arance.Inoltre ci hanno offerto anche reiki e dolci. (efharisto).I proprietari sono molto disponibili e cordiali.Gli appartamenti sono situati nel centro di Rethymno, la sera si può uscire tranquillamente a piedi e passeggiare nelle vie del centro della citta.Essendo in centro, il parcheggio pubblico gratuito è appena fuori dal centro (qualche minuto a piedi). Vicino ci sono anche parcheggi a pagameno.Ringraziamo Barbara e la sua famiglia per l'accoglienza ricevuta. Se torneremo a Rethymno sicuramente non esiteremo a tornare a dormire da Barbara's Studios.Efharisto.

Più che ottima è la posizione e l'accoglienza. La camera era spaziosa con piccolo balconcino. Anche se nelle immediate vicinanze del centro, qui sarete isolati dal rumore. I proprietari Panos e Iro e genitori son gentilissimi e più che disponibili; Impagabili. Avendo avuto un problema che ha richiesto una visita al pronto soccorso e inoltre avendo difficoltà sia con l'inglese che con il greco, la Signora Iro, ci ha accompagnato e assistito amorevolmente per molte ore. Tutti i giorni per gli ospiti vi è un omaggio che va dal dolcetto fatto in casa alla frutta di stagione. Nel senso bello della cosa; ci sembrava di essere a casa. Sempre trovato posto al parcheggio pubblico che si trova sotto la Fortezza, a 100/200 metri dallo Studios.

Ci siamo trovati molto bene in questa struttura in cui, l'hotel inizialmente prenotato, ci ha spostati per problemi alle camere. I proprietari sono tutti gentilissimi e sempre disponibili: ci hanno accolti con biscotti fatti da loro, frutta fresca. Siamo stati in una bella stanza al piano terra, con pareti di sasso, fresca e accogliente. Ottimo il cucinino. tutto molto pulito e curato. La posizione è centrale e molto comoda.a Rhetymno si consiglia "l'abbinamento" con il ristorante Pigadi.

Très accueillant, dans chaque studio en cadeau de bienvenu vous trouverez du raki, extrêmement propre, bien équipé et bien fournit (café, sucre, jus d'orange chimique, beurre, confiture et biscotte/croissant).Les patrons ne sont pas avares en conseils sur les restaurants de bonnes qualités et sites à visiter.Très bonne expérience sur l'endroit, petite sourire ironique tout de même pour la description de booking avec l'indication "vu partiel sur la mer" (on en voit 5 centimètres au dessus des toits si l'on se situe au dernière étage)

Ottima esperienza in questo piccolo hotel immerso nelle vie della città antica. La posizione è ottima sia per visitare la città, sia per visitare il resto di Creta utilizzando l'auto. Zona stategica poichè vicina a tutti i punti d'interessse anche della vita notturna, con ottimi bar e ristoranti. A 10 minuti a piedi dalla stazione degli autobus, è in una via molto tranquilla. Accoglienza gentilissima di Panos e Iro, che si sono molto prodigati per farci sentire al meglio e a nostro agio, offrendoci piccole ma genuine colazioni in camera. Le foto di TA sono assolutamente veritiere, l'ambiente è ricavato da un antico palazzo veneziano dalla cui terrazza si vede il porto e la baia. Camere ben fornite, con aria condizionata indispensabile dato il caldo torrido che attanaglia l'isola in Agosto. Da consigliare assolutamente anche per il rapporto qualità/prezzo. Unica pecca il letto matrimoniale alla francese, di dimensioni ridotte.

la struttura piccola e familiare garantisce il massimo dell' efficenza della pulizia e della privacy.già detto da molti la posizione è perfetta tranquillo ma al confine della zona pedonale più bella della città. Nesssuno vi disturberà con inutili e pesanti conversazioni , ma verrete accolti con il sorriso e la massima disponibilità, e se vorrete potrete piacevolmente conversare in inglese con i titolari una giovane coppia piena di energia e cordiale .L'insieme degli appartamenti ricorda molto una corte Veneziana ( detto da un veneziano) ben curata e fresca con sedute e tavolini per rilassarsi all' aperto.è proprio come esssere a casa.

De studio's zijn zeer goed gelegen. Je zit in het hartje van de oude stad met zijn gezellige straatjes, heerlijke restaurantjes, zijn haven en je bent op wandelafstand van het prachtige zandstrand.De uitbaters, Iro en Panos, doen hun werk met hart en ziel. Ze doen er alles aan om het je naar de zin te maken.Ze gaven ons raad om leuke uitstappen te maken, om lekker te gaan eten en ze bezorgden ons een huurauto. De studios waren kraaknet. Ze werden elke dag gepoetst. Bij aankomst stond er een flesje raki met twee borrelglaasjes op tafel en er lagen beschuitjes, een potje met gemalen koffie, suiker en paar snoepjes op de koelkast. In de koelkast vonden we mini boterpakjes, kleine confituurpotjes en lekkere puddingtjes. Deze voorraad werd dagelijks gecontroleerd en terug aangevuld. Gratis! De pudding werd soms vervangen door een heerlijk stukje cake. We hadden een studio met balkon. De weergoden waren ons gunstig gezind en we konden op het balkon ontbijten. Heerlijk! We zullen zeker nog eens terug gaan naar Rethymnon en dan logeren we zeker opnieuw in Barbara studios!

Un b&b che ricorda un riad di Marrakech: si entra da una porta in una vietta in pieno centro e ci si sente subito a casa. La struttura è fantastica e pulita, i proprietari gentili e calorosi, la camera essenziale ma dotata di tutto il necessario. Lontano anni luce dalle strutture anonime che si trovano a Creta. Un po' difficoltoso il parcheggio ma è un compromesso accettabile se si vuole soggiornare in centro a due passi dai locali e negozi. Assolutamente consigliato!

Midt i gamlebyen, sentralt beliggende, kom vi til en aldeles uvanlig varm mottakelse. Rommene var upåklagelige og servicen var topp. De gav oss informasjon og forslag til restauranter og ting og gjøre . En positiv overraskelse var at de hadde satt inn litt mat til frokost hver kveld i tillegg til at kona satt inn noe hjemmelaget boller eller annet hver dag. Leif og Inger

Io e il mio ragazzo siamo stati a Rethymnon 8 giorni e abbiamo soggiornato al Barbara Studios. Che dire? 1. posizione centralissima: supermarket a 2 minuti a piedi; Fortezza Veneziana a 5 minuti a piedi; il porto con tutti i suoi locali e ristoranti è dietro l'angolo; così come per il centro basta attraversare la strada e si entra nel cure dei negozi; il parcheggio anche è molto vicino. Per il mare bisogna farsi una camminata un po più lunga (10- 15 minuti a piedi) ma questa fatta nel centro di Rethymnon e con quel lungomare pieno di palme è alquanto piacevole.2. I proprietari (Palos e Iros) sono delle persone favolose !!! Appena arrivi ti accolgono con affetto e simpatia nella loro struttura e subito ti muniscono di cartina e indicazioni per visitare la città. Sono sempre disponibili per qualsiasi altra informazione (nel nostro caso noleggio auto nella ricerca del prezzo più conveniente).3. Ogni mattina nel frigorifero i proprietari ti fanno trovare dei dolci tipici fatti in casa e una bevanda sempre fresca (oltre ovviamente a fette biscottate, marmellata, ecc...)4. Il nostro monolocale era ben curato e dotato del necessario. 5. Andare via è stato difficile soprattutto dopo un loro caloroso abbraccio !!!!!!

Un po' scomodo in macchina ma abbiamo trovato un parcheggio per l'auto poco distante, Rethymnon è molto turistica ma ci sono anche dei bei vicoli più tranquilli.

Leggendo le altre recensioni credo sia stato detto praticamente tutto di questo posto fantastico, dove l'accoglienza è quella di due vecchi amici che ti offrono sorrisi, simpatia e disponibilità (oltre a dolcetti, caffè e bibite varie ;) )Il nostro unico rimorso è quello di essere rimasti troppo poco (solo una notte). Panos, Iro e i suoi genitori sono delle persone fantastiche. ευχαριστώ πολύ!

Parlo di sorpresa perchè non avevo mai soggiornato in una struttura che non fosse un Hotel da almeno 4 stelle ed ero un poco diffidente verso uno studios seppure di buon livello. La strurrura è pulita accogliente e centrale, ma il vero punto di forza è l'ospitalità! Panos, Hiro, Barbara e Stelio sono persone stupende! Gentili, ospitali pronti a coccolarti con sorrisi accompagnati da bibite caffè e sopratutto i dolcetti che Hiro confeziona ogni giorno per gli ospiti. Sono arrivato con la febbre alta e ho chiesto a mia moglie ed ai miei amici di andare ugualmente al mare, sono rimasto in loro compagnia accudito e premurosamente trattato. Struttura buona, gestione ottima! Grazie amici spero di rivedervi un giorno...

Esta casa -"hotel" se queda corto para tanta hospitalidad- es simplemente, lo que cualquier persona querría encontrar en sus vacaciones. Lo primero, por la relación que Iro y Panos (¡y Lilly, la perrita!) crean con el afortunado huésped (llegamos demasiado pronto, la habitación no estaba lista, y nos sirvieron fruta y refrescos: nunca me había pasado eso...; y charlaron con nosotros como si nos conociéramos de toda la vida. Y no estaban interpretando: son así). Después, porque las habitaciones son estupendas: limpias, con todo a disposición, bonitas y muy accesibles de precio. Una botellita de raki te da una bienvenida alegre y cristalina. La situación es inmejorable: en el centro de Rethymnon, una de las ciudades más hermosas del Mediterráneo. Nunca he estado mejor que en el Barbara, y ya he estado en muchos sitios.Lo único malo: tener que marcharse. Lo mejor: que volveremos. Mi recomendación: no os lo perdáis. Y luego, contadlo, porque Iro y Panos se lo merecen.

Heerlijke tijd gehad bij Panos en Iro en hun familie. De appartementen zijn schoon en ruim en voorzien van alle gemakken. Gratis Airco en Wifi. Balkons in de middag heerlijk in de schaduw. De lokatie is echt super, direkt in het oude centrum en toch als je terug komt en de deur sluit is het stil. Het strand is ongeveer 7 minuten lopen maar als je stranbedjes wilt (zoals wij) is het ongeveer 15 minuten lopen. Elke dag hadden we heerlijke zelfgemaakte cakejes of pudding in de koelkast, echt zeer gastvrij. Ook is het een schitterend huis met de eigenaren onder hetzelfde dak. Wij verbleven er een week. Panos en Iro hebben de taxitransfer van en naar de luchthaven voor ons geregeld, echt helemaal top! Als wij teruggaan naar Rethymnon gaan we zeker weer naar de Barbara Studios!

Номер на 4 небольшой, все простенькое, но все необходимое есть, полностью оборудованная кухня, идеальная чистота.Хозяева очень радушные и приветливые.Недостатки: совсем нет какой-либо территории, балкончики расположены очень близко друг у другу. Нам попались частокурящие соседи и весь дым затягивало в наш номер.

An ideal location, very central and close to harbour, beach, shops and tourist attractions. For an older person, the accommodation is not ideal. Had to get up in the night to re-make the bed as the sheets were not tucked in and all the bedding was in the floor! I injured the muscles of my back as I lifted the end of the mattress to do so. The pain and subsequent treatment has added extra expense to my holiday. This happened on my last night in Crete, so at least I was able to do some walking, and it was even warm enough for some swimming whilst I was there.

Где припарковать авто и куда сходить на обед или ужин спросите у Паноса и Иро, они плохого не посоветуют! В общем могу сказать что если буду еще на Крите остановлюсь именно в Barbara Studios!

This is a lovely house for a holiday, (but if your knees are dodgy ask for a ground floor room as there are many stairs to the others.)The rooms are large, very well-equipped and comfortable, with lots of clean sheets and towels and everything is spotless. The street outside is narrow and pretty, so with no cars. There is a fully functioning kitchen in the room as well as a hairdryer, iron, TV and spare beds if needed. The people who run the house are great, always smiling and laughing, always available to help and always willing. I can't speak highly enough of them. They make you feel enjoyed.The house is in a beautiful position near the port, near the fort, and close to lots of little shops and cafes, but about 10 minutes walk along the beach to the part where you can swim. That makes the place feel quite private and secluded.I stayed there in the Spring and I only wish I could have stayed all summer - it really felt like home.

I’ve been in Barbara Studios 2 times, and I love it! Barbara Studios is a lovely quiet place, full of nice little corners to seat and relax. It is very well located, in the heart of the beautiful Rethymno. Thanks to Iro and Panos, the owners of the place, to be so helpful and so kind during my stay! I highly recommend Barbara Studios as the best place to stay in Rethymno.

We stayed here for 5 nights and from the first moment we stepped in the door it felt like home, greeted by a friendly family and happy Dog :-)Rooms are large with everything you need, beds are slightly on the hard side but always clean. Rooftop view of Rethimno is nice and it's overall location is perfect.The styling of the building is beautiful and we would have no second thoughts about staying here again!Thanks Iro & Panos :-)

I stayed in Barbara studios for 2 nights before moving to the south.. It's a casual and friendly place.. I really loved its architecture -it's a refurbished traditional house built in stone, with two absolutely fabulous internal common spaces.. During the afternoons one can sit in the front one and have a chat with other guests and the owners are as friendly as you can get.. Loved these moments :) ..The rooms are very clean and cozy and the location of the building is another plus as you are instantly in the hot spot of the city!

A really nice hostel in an ancient Venetian house, located in the center of Rethymnon, close to the old town, the fortress and the port. The rooms are clean and full equipped with some home-made cakes everyday, coffee, orange juice for the breakfast and even a little bottle of Raki. The staff is really friendly, you can have a seat and a drink with them, always in the mood to talk to travelers : definitely the best way to feel the spirit of the city and to travel !

We stayed here for one night. It is a very unique, nice and clean property. The owners are super-friendly, helpful and hospitable!! We had a twin room at the first floor with balcony facing the back yard. It was nice and quiet. For those who want to cook on their own (which we don't recommend - Rethymnon has soooooo many outstanding restaurants, f.ex. Erofili) there was a small kitchenette.The owner provide some crackers, sweets, raki, butter, jam and juice complementary... If it is not sufficient for breakfast - there are enough choices in town.The big BUT is the bed - it was horrible! Really hard, you feel the metal inside... For one night that might be ok, but for a longer stay we wouldn't recommend.All in all a nice choice though with charm and a good location.

It's ur home in Rethymnon! The owner is so friendly, with his warm family members and the little dog "Lily" :) This is for sure the best hotel I've ever lived in. You can find small snacks, coffee and candies on the table in your room and juice in your fridge for free! Everything is ordered so well!  I like the natural smell in the room which is unlike some strange smell in other hotels. I visited them in not a high season and booked a room without balcony but I mentioned I wanted a seaview room if possible. Then the owner just upgraded my room to a wonderful seaview room with a balcony! We were lost when we found the place, he just went to pick up us. He kindly gave us some suggestions about where to eat and where to visit. That's why we could experience the most real part of the city! the location is perfect and the old town is just around, so we went back often to change clothes and even washed the fruit we bought. If I have any opportunity, I'll visit it again for more time for sure!!! And miss you, little "Lily" ;) Xxxxxx~(To the owner: just left today, you may know who I am ^_^ thanks for your perfect service!)

Barbar Studios is situated smack in the middle of the old town in Rethimno. Easy access to everything - you just walk there. Friendly staff - Panos and Iro live there. It's line you're living in their guestroom. Barbara Studios come highly recommended to all who want to stay in the middle of Rethimno.

We had a fantastic time at Barbara Studios - everything was perfect. Amazing location in the gorgeous old town, really comfortable room, and the best hospitality you would wish for - Panos and Iro and wonderful hosts; they treat you like family. Everything from leaving treats in your room to helping with what to do, where to go, travel bookings, suggesting excellent restaurants (make sure you go to Alana, just across the street) - nothing is too much trouble and everything is done with a huge smile. We loved our stay there and would defintely visit again, and recommend it to anyone.

This is the third time we've stayed at Barbara Studios and we love it! The rooms are comfortable and homely. Panos and Iro are fantastic hosts, looking after everything we need and spending time relaxing with us too. We feel so at home here - and the daily treats in our room made us feel really cared for. Perfect location, right in the heart of the old town. Definitely coming back here again and again!

It was a beautiful stay at Barbara Studios in Rethmynon.The house is located in the town but still quiet and reallylovely with many nice details. If you come by car it is easyto find a parking place nearby - just follow the suggestionsof the owners. Panos and Iro are very friendly and supportive.We enjoyed the stay a lot and had a much fun. There aremany nice places in the town (the castle is nearby and also thebeach is still close) but you can also have nice excursions around.Rethymnon is a good place to stay and to explore the little villagesand sights in the middle of the island.(There is no swimming pool in the house - so no vote here, but it is not a hotel- and really there are so many things to explore you will not miss a pool :-)

This place is our home away from home. Very clean and packed with a cozy atmosphere, it's not getting better any other place.

Now lets not get to carried away with the +++'s. For a start it rained while I was there. Well not all the time. ha..As I stand on the roof area with its tables and chairs sipping a cold beer I peer over the side and see a pool in the establishment next door. Well good luck to them. Bet they pay for something hardly used. Most go down the road to the beach for a dip. My days journey began in Larnaca Cyprus, Flight to Athens then onwards to Heraklion 5:30pm No info counter for tourists at airport unless you had booked with a tour company which have their counters outside. Finally found bus stop to town. Got dropped off with driver pointing down a road to where I could catch bus to Rethymno. Got all togeather and arrived edge of old town 8pm, A wander around found me in front of what really did not look like an accommodation other than perhaps someones house. Bing Bong and push open the door. No really sure how many rooms here but quite a few on three levels.Greeted and taken to my room, top floor for 3 nights. Cooking facilities, fridge, tea and coffee. Biscuits and cake yum later on. Mentioned not into cookies and fruit appeared. Also a small bottle of Raki for those who wish an extra part of warmth that comes with the place. It has been mentioned in privious reviews about the Hardness of the very thin matresses. YES. Wont disagree here. Plenty of room and a balcony looking over a garden/patio with small pond to gather and talk with fellow guests. Soft colour lighting at night, also the roof for chatting, looking over the town and back at the Castle. Fittings are old. For the price, a bargin.Very handy to either waterfront ( more modern, touristy, other food tavernas) and the old town, its little streets and great Crete food and atmosphere.Information, on the area and extended parts of Crete is offered by Hosts. Great as I new very little. I did visit a very unknown gorge called Richtis by Exo Mouliana village near Sitia, East Crete. Not heaps of people, with lots of the walk under a canopy of trees,some bolders and a lovely waterfall throwen in. No fee. 1.75 hrs each way or tempt the drive down to the beach by thin road then walk into the waterfall a 30 min or so but not the tree canopy on offer this way.Rethymno is a great place to visit with Barbara's Hosts capping off a wonderful stay in their establishment. So pleased I did not leave out this part of Crete on my journey.

"Love is spoken in this place" this quote welcomes you when you arrive at Barbara Studios. Not a luxurious place at all, but you find anything you need, including a kitchennette. Its location is great but the best thing is the warmth from Panos and Iro.

He gave me city map and advice on dinning, attractions and beaches to swim. When I left, Iro gave me one bag of hand-made cookies. Felt grateful and touched. Barbara Studios is not a luxury hotel but very cozy and beautiful. Room is comfortable, spacious and clean. Just stayed one night but had a wonderful lodging experience. Highly recommended.

This is probably one of the best places to stay in the center of Rethymnon. Compared to other similar b&b in greece it is cleaner, friendlier, has better service and love. We got home made cakes every day, the coffee jar always filled and cleaning and washing up every day. If i was to want for something more it would have been more places to put shampoo bottles in the bathroom (but the lack of that is greek standard).

we come every year to Rethymnon and this is the best accomodation we stayed in! It is something special to stay here because you are no tourist anymore you are a friend. If you sit in the courtyard it don't take long time and there are sitting 10 people and you eat together and drink Raki hahahaha. The Rooms are very clean and you got everything in it, really! Everyday you find something in your sweet in your room (homemade mmmmhhh efxaristo Agyro and Barbara).So next year Agyro and Panagiotis we come back! That's a promise!!!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for five days, and we were sad to leave at the end. I don't think I've ever stayed at a more hospitable place -- upon arrival, Iro supplied us with a map and a bunch of tips on where to go and eat nearby. (The old town is beautiful, but also filled with tourist traps - so the quality recommendations were greatly appreciated!) Iro and Panos also helped us with car rental and our general tourist questions.Every night we'd come back to our room to find a freshly filled bottle of raki and some sort of homemade baked treat.The last night, we sat in the courtyard with them and a few other guests, drinking raki, talking, and generally having the kind of time you exactly wish your Greek vacation would be like.Needless to say, we were sad to leave! I can't recommend it enough.

We were staying in a Studio that could accommodate up to 3 people so we had plenty of space. The studio was well equipped and the kitchen had a kettle, coffee maker and toaster. The location is very good. Right in the centre of old Rethymnon close to the harbour and fort as well as all the shops and restaurants. Not far from the bus station. A lovely couple run the establishment and there are nice touches like fruit drink in the fridge and fresh coffee made available. We also received some cakes each day of our stay. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom very good. All was very clean.There were no significant problems. The bed area was on a platform above the kitchen with quite steep steps. As heat rises it gets very hot up there during warm weather. The air conditioning run for a short while will address this. Whilst the kitchen is well equipped there are not enough plugs in this area. There are others in other parts of the apartment

We only spent one night at Barbara Studios, and unfortunately it was the worst night of the trip since we hardly slept at all. Upon arrival everything seemed fine - the hosts were very friendly and we were upgraded to a larger studio than we paid for. The studio itself was nice - basic but extremely clean and there were some treats (raki, juice, home made sweets) that we enjoyed. Everything seemed to match the reviews on tripadvisor and booking.com (the reviews is what made us choose Barbara Studios).The bed was on a loft, and it was very hot there as this was on the top floor and the bed was just below the roof. The host said that it wouldn't be a problem in the night, the AC would take care of it. Fair enough, we thought. After having spent many nights on various greek islands in various hotels/hostels/b&bs we weren't that concerned. Anyhow. When going to bed, the AC had been running for a few hours and it was still really hot on the loft. THEN we encountered the biggest problem: the lack of soundproofing. We could hear pretty much everything of what was going on in the neighbouring rooms... and unfortunately our neighbours snored. BIG times. It was so loud, it was rediculous! After some tossing and turning, we fell asleep... only to wake up to a freezing cold room. We had set the AC to 24 degrees, but that didn't matter - it just continued to blow out cold air. So, we had two options: to turn it off and have the room turn back into a sauna (which it did - quickly), or to sleep in the cold. Unfortunatly, there were no blankets... and it was in the middle of the night, so there wasn't anyone to ask. So, what is my over all impression of this place? Would I recommend it to other travellers? Well, I guess that depends. The place really is nice, clean and friendly. If you aren't concerned about nor noises from other guests, nor the hot/cold temperature - then yes, I do recommend it! However, if you ARE concerned about these matters - stay away!

Panos and Iro, the guys that run the place, were really helpful and friendly, they gave us excellent tips for places to eat and shop. If we ever go back to Crete (and I guess we will), we will definitely stay there again!

We spent 2 nights in this hotel. It is a very comfortable structure, situated in the northern part of Crete, in the centre of Rethymnon. From here it is very easy to drive to Balos, Chania or Heraklion. Very nice owner (ready to give us hints on Crete). The only thing to be changed is the shower (the curtain is too short and the water invades the floor). All in all, positive experience!

We had a lovely stay at Barbara Studios. Panos and Iro couldn't do enough for us and we had the best hospitality in all our travels to date, having stayed at many places in many countries.They were both there for us everyday with big smiles always ready to help with anything, even lugging our heavy suitcases to the top of the stairs in 40 degree temperatures! The accommodation was clean, comfortable and the best thing was that everything was so close in this lovely part of the old town. My two young daughters felt very welcome and comfortable and loved the wonderful little sweet treats that Iro hand made each day, a lovely touch. Thank you to both of you! Sonny and Lina

The fresh cookies baked every day by Iro and left in the room are so gooood and really nice surprise when you are coming back. The place being an old Greek house with very nice and quiet court has its own specal climate! And the owners... They are just amazing! You will become friends with them from the very first day!

We have just stayed a week with Panos and Iro and absolutely loved it. As most everyone has stated they are perfect hosts and yes we too looked forward to seeing what goodies were in the fridge when we returned from a day on the beach. The apartment was spacious and comfortable with a large narrow balcony looking east over the courtyard and to the sea. Yes it was overlooked by a few rooms at the Ideon hotel but we hardly ever saw anyone on their balconies. It was a nice area for a relaxing wine or 2 in the evening.The apartments are perfectly placed for the Old Town. No more the !50 yds from the Rimondi Fountain in the centre of town. Rethymno is lovely, full of character and narrow back streets and alleyways full of shops and tavernas and restaurants. Panos will give you some restaurant recommendations as there are so many in the town. We particularly liked Kyria Maria down an alleyway behind the Rimondi, Erofili, just around the corner from the studios and if you go to the Venetian Harbour, Zefyros is brilliant.We spent between 25 to50 Euro on starters , 2 mains and a litre of house red(never had a bad wine!) and the usual free desert and raki.The Town beach is a 10min walk . 2 sunbeds and umbrella were 9 euros in town but go further afield and its 5 or 6 euros,So this location can be a city break combined with a beach hol. We had hired a car so also visited Plakias on the south , Platianas about 5km east and Georgiropoulis about 30 km west.Managed to park everyday except Sunday, when the locals all seem to be out, at the nearest free car parking near the fortezza. On the Sunday used the other car park on the west of the fortezza and was a 10 min walk.I must also add how friendly thel local population are and most speak english.A visit to Panos and Iro's place is highly reccomended.

Iro and her husband are fantastic! They go out of their way to make you feel welcome at Barbara Studios. Iro especially was very kind to me, as I had a bag stolen near the airport and it contained my contact lens solution. All the nearby pharmacies were closed, so Iro went on her motorcycle to one further out of town and brought it back for me! It made me feel so much happier after such a bad experience earlier.She also left homemade sweets, orange juice, raki, and more in our room. The room was very clean and the housekeeping was excellent. The hotel is also in a very good location and you can walk easily to many places.I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in Rethymnon!

It was truly a lovely place to return to each night after a long day of sightseeing. It was like we were at home! Beautiful hotel, room and facilities as well. Very highly recommended for any type of trip. Thanks Iro and Panos !!!!! It was a trip of a lifetime :)

The owners were SO nice. My friend and I arrived at the Rethymno bus station late at night and had no idea how to get there. One call to the hotel hoping for some helpful information, but the hotel owner actually comes by with his car and picks us up free of charge! We didn't expect that and we really appreciated the gesture as we were tired from the bus trip. The room came equipped with a kitchen. Although no breakfast, there was a few slices of bread, some homemade Greek desserts and even some raki to share! It was also nice that they gave us a map of the area which they pencilled in their preferred must-see places and places to eat. There's also a communal computer available in the hallway that can be used by guests. They were also very nice and kept our bags for us the next day until it was time for us to leave. I don't think you will be disappointed with Barbara Studios.

Staying at Barbara Studios was a highlight of our visit to Crete! Beautiful historic Venetian building, brilliantly used as studios around a central courtyard. Panos & Iro are so friendly and helpful, we made full use of their bar and restaurant recommendations which were all great. Their hospitality was also second to none with gorgeous personal touches like complimentary raki, homemade limoncello and homemade baking! Our studio was clean, comfortable and very well equipped for our needs. Our only minor issue was the small shower but this was hardly worth mentioning. The balcony was a true delight which we made full use of.A definite gem!

We stayed two nights and we were really impressed by very good quality of accommodation. Owners were really friendly and helpfull. Iro, thanks a lot for free breakfast, raki, cookies and all kindness. Unfortunately, Rethymno was not a place for someone like us; non-urban. Too many samey shops and restaurants with pushy stuff. Almoust no respect of historical monuments. Graffiti all around. Sad.

Our 11 day stay was made so memorable thanks to the warm hospitality of Panos & Iro.We were treated like family members not guests with nothing was too much trouble. They always had time to chat and help in whatever way they could. The "extras" in the room were a nice touch and we looked forward to returning from our days out to the home baked surprise!The apartment was cleaned every day and to a high standard, not the usual norm in Greece.Good kitchen facilities if you fancy cooking more than just toast in the morning.The Studios are in a good position near the Venetian harbour. There are many restaurants around all with good and reasonably priced food. Lovely smart shops and amazingly a lot of fur shops. Graffiti seems to be a big problem and to some extent does spoil the town’s building as nothing seems to be immune even the churches have been ‘done’. There is a little train that takes you around the sights of Rethymnon
