I stayed one month at Iason Studios in Chania between Feb.-Mar. and was very pleased. The location in the old town is a good one (Angelou St. just a few yards from the famous Theotokopoulo St.), the harbor view, and many conveniences like small grocery stores, restaurants, etc. I had delightful walks daily exploring the labrynthine pathways that were full of beauty and interesting people. But when I got tired, the conveniently located apartment welcomed me back for a meal or siesta. Our studio apartment was modest with heat/AC (We needed the heat in the mornings.), a small kitchen with a two-burner stove and a refrigerator. After a few days the apartment became home.
There are so many good things about Iason Studios, and Despoina, the proprietress, is probably the most important. Despoina was very attentive to our needs and a very warm and welcoming host during our stay in her very well-kept apartments. We turned to Despoina often if we needed something for the apartment and turned to her, as well, for news on interesting city events and for suggestions for day hikes within or outside the city to see the sights. I want to return to Crete soon and will definitely be giving Despoina a call before I do.
(I recommend highly recommend reading Despoina’s description of Iason Studios. It is comprehensive and a very accurate explanation.)

We loved our time at Iason Studios. The studio had everything we needed and a charming balcony. Despina who runs the studios couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The location was absolutely terrific-. in the Old Town, very scenic and convenient. The local cafes in the surrounding streets were excellent too. Highly recommended, excellent value for money.
