    Just about the best I've stayed in

    by

    This is the view from the top of our staircase; out front, our balcony gave out onto a pretty street in the old town. The rooms are really well maintained: ours were cleaned every day. Roomy and tastefully decorated in a simple style. The whole place is quite small and intimate; a pretty garden round the tiny pool. Remember the pool IS tiny - I emphasise that as there were grumbles about that from visitors who hadn't read their brochure properly! You can use the larger one at the Ideon, about 10 mins away ... plus full use of a massive beach that runs around the bay - again about a 5 to 10 mins away.

    There are studios &apartments available. The studios : we were very happy with our small studio but, while we found it ideal and spacious for 2, it would not have been so good for 3 or 4 perhaps. The apartments: there were grumbles from some guests who stayed in the apartments, as opposed to studios (and therefore paid more). Bedrooms in these larger apartments were on a mezzanine with a slippery steep staircase. The overall floor area wasn't much larger than the studios. I would have been fine with them, but soem guests obviously had higher expectations. If you want a very roomy aparmtent, maybe look elsewhere?

    Also good to ask for studio on a higher floor - they have a nicer outlook.

    Don't expect to do elaborate cooking here - two small rings and a fridge plus some basic equipment. Loads of places to eat in town! Take a little washing line and a few pegs.

    Bear in mind that the staff are great but the ones we met didn't speak much English. Not a problem us as we'd picked up some basic Greek on past trips, but, ,we did hear grumbles from other guests! The rep just seems to visit once a week - a big plus for us, but , again, if you like a lot of input from reps, you may not find this place best for you.

    Unique Quality: Again, a location location thing - right in the heart of Rethymnon's old town, in one of the quaint old streets.

    Cheap, clean, friendly and cheerful - also fuss free ! - for the independently minded traveller.

    Unfortuantely, these rooms are only bookable for minimum one week's stay through First Choice holidays in the UK: in other words you can't just turn up there - there may be other travel companies that do them, so do ask around.

    VT member steventilly has already given these rooms a plug in his brilliant Crete site. So do remember to check his tips out too.

More about Pepi Studios

Picturesque old town

by Spincat

One minute you are in a hurly burly of noisy roads and chaotic driving, long spawling resorts of car rental. supermarkets and 'rooms', 'coktail' bars and karaoke... the next minute you are in the old city of Rethymnon, with its narrow, paved streets, old venetian facades, oriental balconies and picturesque ruins.

Though there are places of interest outside outside this very pretty old heart of Rethymno, I strongly recommend basing yourself in the old town itself. There are lots of good rooms places. Book in advance during July - September.

The picture is the view from our apartments, Pepi Studios - a converted venetian house.

Avoid the long seaside sprawl - it is a good beach, but do you want to spend all day on it with a lot of other tourists?
