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.

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

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!!

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.

Lovely, stylish, quiet and clean B&B with strategic location and wonderful services. They surprise you with a detailed map with personal writings and recommendations. You can find all things you need on it. They also leave you lovely desserts, small cakes and cold water in your fridge when they finish the cleansing every day. At the roof, you can see the mountain with snow as well. Superb value for money too.

A really welcoming place. Iro and Panos really welcome the guests well and make everyone feel at home. From the map of the local area on arrival (annotated with the best restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, pharmacies and cash machines), to the lovely cakes left in the room each day, their hospitality made my stay a very special one. Thank you Iro and Panos (and Lilly!) for a wonderful stay (and the birthday cake!)I will definitely return!

Wonderful place to stay in Rethymno in the heart of the old town. It is also easy walking distance to the beach and the new town. Beautiful relaxing place with very friendly owners.Highly recommended.

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.

L'endroit est parfait : un peu en retrait et pourtant bien au coeur de la vieille ville. L'accueil est vraiment personalisé, humour compris. Panos et Iro sont attentifs, curieux et chaleureux ; on a l'impression de quitter des amis. Vivement les revoir, retrouver le balcon, la terrasse et la vue sur la Forterezza.

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.

Panos and Iro are the best hosts, extremely nice, friendly and helpful. Before my arriving, they sent me a kind reminder including useful info. After arriving, Panos welcomed me like old friends. 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.
