We had a great time in Rethymno, and in Georges appartment, My girl was sick and lay down for some days, so we used the appartment a lot, every thing was fine, just the plate for cooking needs a bit time. When u like to sleep, is the noise from the street some times a bit disturbing, but i would book that appartment again. The destination is direktly in the old town and very beautiful.

George’s place is the place to be in Rethymnon. It’s central and traditional. I stayed there for 5 days and it was a fantastic holiday. I felt home and everything was easy and beautiful. The studio flat has everything you need, and tavernas are just downstairs. I am sure I will visit George again. He isa super host!

Location is mint. Walking distance to everything around Rethymon old city. So much great choice for meals at every corner. George was very friendly and there to welcome me albeit a late arrival. Also quick to respond to emails sent prior to arrival. Place was smaller than expected but I was there for three nights and mostly out and about so overall suited its purpose. Not really self catering facilities but to be honest with so many amazing and reasonable priced restaurants at every turn. Why would you want to worry about self catering. All round an enjoyable stay and I would recommend this place for a few nights to anyone. More than that you may want to consider bigger.

We stayed at the studio for 8 nights. George was very, very helpful and was great at keeping in touch. We arrived quite late and he was there to let us in and talk us through things. The complimentary bottle of raki was much appreciated! The studio itself is as pictured and described and works well for a couple or single person wanting to be close to all the nightlife and action in the city. The location is perfect, situated right in the old town on the lovely cobbled streets. There's plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. Some people mentioned the noise being a problem. If you live in a city, especially this central, noise is part of the deal. That being said, I don't think the noise was too overbearing. The bin collection in the morning can be a bit of a wake up call, but it's not super early. Advice for future travellers: - Cooking at home is limited as only one small hob, which takes quite a long time to cook anything on - Take extra towels if staying more than a few days - Parking is quite difficult. There's paid parking nearby, but it can take a few trips around the block to find free parking. You'll probably end up parking 5 - 7 minutes walk away so keep this in mind. - We noticed a small issue with the shower several times. The water would drain too slowly to keep shower running continuously, which is a bit annoying as took longer to shower. We needed to turn it off, wait a few minutes until drained and then reopen the tap. - Look out for the really cute white and ginger cat that hangs around on the terrace Ideally this is probably more suited to a shorter stay in the city, perhaps a weekend rather than a full week as can be tricky to prepare food or relax as space is very limited. However, if you plan to eat out a lot and want to be right in the centre, this could work and I'd recommend it!

This apartment was so great! It is close to the beach, restaurants, the bus station, Fortezza and all of the other cultural attractions of the city. The supermarket is also just around the corner. It is located above a beautiful restaurant and has a terrace/balcony that is perfect if you want to enjoy a glass of wine before bedtime. George was very helpful anytime we had questions and he gave good recommendations whenever we asked for it.

The place is great and very central. extremely clean and great value for money. The only little thing is that the bins had to be taken out and early each morning somebody came to empty it. He dragged the bin out which woke me up every day. Apart from that, I will not hesitate to go back there again.

Response from George:
In this comment Waseem talks about the municipality garbage vehicle which pass by every morning to collect the garbage. I believe that a closed window or shutter would eliminate this problem.

The studio is located in the city center of Rethymnon and it's easy to find. There's a supermarket 50 meters away, so if you want to cook something (you shouldn't do it because the restaurants in Rethymnon are great) is it very easy! You can reach the beach in a 10 minute walk. The host; George, is really nice! He waited for us at the studio when we arrived and told us some nice things we had to visit at Crete. George also helped us to find a good and cheap taxi-company who brought us to the airport early in the morning. There's also a little balcony where you can eat your home-made breakfast in the sun. So nice! We loved to stay at studio blue!
