Spent 2 weeks here. the room is small but adequate. the mini kitchen is not really for dedicated self caterers as it would be difficult to cook every day with one ring and a kettle on the same socket - but okay for the occasional meal and snacks. The place is kept beautifully clean and the brothers were most helpful...

Firstly we thought the hotel was a 4 star but in reality was definitely a 3. it was also totally unsuitable as a Saga hotel due to the amount of families and younger people staying in the same complex, we were very much the minority of 10% in this vast complex. Unfortunately we experienced 4 of our rooms being burgled,...

We have just come back from here and can not fault it, the brothers George and Zac go over board to help and make your saty a happy one, they are so easy going and helpful, the rooms are cleaned daily and the pool area is just bliss! the apartments are simple but all you need, 5 minute walk from...

Dont be fooled by all the great reviews of the Imperial Studios . They couldn't be further from the truth. The main problem we found was that nearly everythin we asked for was greeted with a no especially from Zac one of the two brothers that own the complex ! We asked for a meal at 7.30 one eve an...

I stayed at the Imperial Studios for 1-8 August 2012 with my best friend. We arrived at midday and were the first drop from the airport (literally 20minute drive if that!). Upon arrival we were greeted by Zac who took us straight to the bar for a much needed beer! The owners are lovely and really looked after us all...

Words can hardly describe how wonderful Crete is in early Summer. I had been meaning to visit for years and somehow it went off my radar. But I'm very glad that I remembered about it. I researched thoroughly on Trip Advisor before making my choice of where to stay. It gave me the confidence when the airline initially lost our...

A wonderful place, the owners georgio and zac are great hosts, the food which is fresh from either their farm or the garden is the best you will taste. The studios are beautifully simple, clean and comfortable. Walking distance to amoudara and some nice tavernas.The pool area is fringed with palms and is for residents only, as their are only...

This place really grew on me. We had taken a value holiday so we weren't expecting 5 star. The brothers greeted us with a beer and a handshake, and were thouroughly charming and generous throughout the week. The place was clean and well run. The rooms were small and basic, but comfortable enough. Couple of beds, a sink, fridge, kettle...

The Hotel Imperial or Imperial Studios in Amoudara, Crete is run by 2 brothers, Zac & Georgio. Zac & Georgio are amazing! They make a point of greeting everyone by name and come across as genuinely caring about their guests. The emphasis is relax and enjoy. This is an ideal place for couples and families but not suitable for youngsters...
