Choose us is your best decision


We have always been advocates of serviced apartments over traditional hotel stays but in the wake of Covid 19, the benefits have become even more obvious. While many hotels were forced to close their doors for a lot of the past year, KOULA STUDIOS & APARTMENTS, at Stalis Crete, have been very lucky to have the space, facilities and flexibility to remain open, accommodating visitors from across Europe safely. Here are some of the many reasons to choose Koula Studios and Apartments during Covid 19.


When you rent a hotel room that’s exactly what you get. No matter the luxury or size of the room, it is a single room with a bathroom. When you rent a serviced apartment, you are renting an entire apartment with multiple rooms, storage, a family-sized kitchen & bathroom. Our spacious studios and apartments offer you space to relax, cook, and live comfortably whether your stay is for few nights or a month.


Hotel rooms do not offer a lot of flexibility. If you want to eat, you need to leave your room for a restaurant or café and takeaway food is consumed with plastic cutlery while perched on the edge of your bed. If you need to work, there is a very limited desk space and you can forget about home workouts with such a small space around the bed. One of the biggest benefits of a serviced apartment is the kitchen, fully equipped for you to prepare, cook and store food – freeing you from restrictive restaurant menus. This is ideal for those on a budget, fussy eaters and those with food allergies or strict diets. 


As well as the extra facilities in your apartment, we offer a host of other extras you can take advantage of. If you’d like to hit the ground running, we offer a grocery delivery service and are happy to put away your groceries before you arrive. We offer a baggage storage service if you like to travel home for weekends. Our apartments offer a washing machine, ideal for those staying long term or self-isolating, to make sure you look your best without the extra expense of dry cleaning. We also offer our guests free access to high-speed internet. 


We are all more conscious of safety and cleanliness since the outbreak of the pandemic. We want to keep ourselves and our neighbours safe and staying in a serviced apartment facilitates this much better than a traditional hotel. From the minute you step through the door, you feel safe. We have a sanity system, offer a contactless check-in and out and finally we have stepped up our sanitisation protocols in our already spotless apartments, using bio-misting on top of our regular routine.

Serviced apartments naturally facilitate social distancing too. Everything you need for a safe, comfortable stay is self-contained in your apartment. You have no reason to have contact with any other guests or staff if you don’t need to. Enjoy meals in your suite without piling into a crowded breakfast room and cook or order food to enjoy in the privacy of your suite at a time that suits you.


One of the most sensitive factors to consider when choosing a self-catering accommodation like Koula Studios and Apartments in Stalis is the price. When you choose a serviced apartment over a hotel you’ll be getting much better value for money. Not only can you enjoy a competitive rate, you also get better comfort, space and facilities for the same price. When you choose a serviced apartment, you can save on restaurant bills by preparing food in your apartment.
