The most charming place in Town. Not two rooms close to being alike. Downstairs busy Souliou, upstairs a pleasant and quiet roofterrace. The place also have the best clientelle. Many new friends have been found here.

Situated in the atmospheric old town within easy reach of the historic sites - Venetian fortress, fountain, minaret and museums. The beach and no end of restaurants are close by too. The pension has a labrynth of rooms with one even on the roof. The roof garden is tranquil and you can eat there too. It is basic and met...

Very unique! Together with Stella's Kitchen below the rooms, it was the most outstanding place for us to stay in Crete. We have been here for over a month so far. It's location is in the middle of Old Town on a walking street. John from SF

Olga´s is certainely not a run-of-the-mill accomodation. Most of the rooms are pretty small and you would not want to hang out in them longer than neccessary. But who comes to Crete to hang out in their rooms anyway? During the day you will be at the beach or exploring the island, in the evenings you can sit in the...

I travelled alone and gor some kind of stomach ache/infection and was sick for one day. But Stella and George helped me, cooked diktamos-tee, gave me youghurt, when I could eat again! I was well very soon mostly because of owners firendlyness! The room was small, but everything worked and the place was so good. In the middle of beautiful...

I really love this place! I've stayed here several times and it was always good! Okay, I have to confess it's not the cleanest place.. But the atmosphere is very good and the owners are so friendly and helpful! I've stayed in some rooms and some studios. While studying in Rethymno I stayed in a studio for half a year....

The place is right in the middle of old town Rethymnon, renovated and taken care off, but unless you tear down some of these Turkish or Venetian era structures and start from the beginning, nothing is that good. The operative words are small, clean, basic. If you are an adventurer but do not want to camp, go for it. Actually...

I have stayed at Olga's pension several times, George the owner very friendly and totally helpful, Stella his wife, who runs the restaurant downstairs is friendly and helpful too. She and Illiana cook tasty genuine home made Cretan cuisine every day. Fantastic food, best I've had anywhere in Greece. Restaurant strongly supported by locals, that says it all for me.

Well we're staying with George & Stella again this July. This will be my seventh visit and i cant wait to see my friends again. George is amazing, and Stella is a treasure. I love the rooms and their different charms. Yes you do have to realise that Olgas is ecelectic, but this is why I love it soo much....

We only had 4 days to kill in Rethymnon before heading East and arrived with nowhere to stay. George gave us a very warm welcome at 7:30am, showed us to a studio room and gave us a very reasonable price for 3 nights. I agree with a previous reviewer's first opinion - the place is eclectic and charming. The room...

“The studios are bigger but only have double beds. Room 1 is perfect for 1-3 nights and room 3, even though its small has a full kitchen.”
