“Good location, basic rooms, some noise issues”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We had a double room in the apartments building. It was one house further away from the reception and opposite side of the Kinidarou street. First floor room with one balcony looking to the Kinidarou street and another, smaller balcony in the inner courtyard!

Location was good, in a sense that it's close to the city center and first beaches. A supermarket can be found on both ends of the Kinidaru street.

The bad is that a lot of traffic goes by day and night at least during the height of the season... Tourists are wandering there with their scooters and whatnot, and also locals are busy driving around any time of the day. I have to say, the locals caused even more noise than the tourists. For example, some guy next door loved to start his his big motorbike with a VERY loud roam several times a night. So, be a GOOD sleeper or carry ear plugs... or get very drunk and pass out every night (which I don't recommend, btw!! :) The traffic must also be the reason why the balcony furniture had to be cleaned daily from the dust and dirt.

The room was very basic in decoration. We thought that booking a double room would automatically get some extra quality but no, this was as basic as it gets. It would have been ok, but most of the equipment in the room was very worn or even broken. The fridge handle was broken off almost completely. The other door of the big wardrobe was hanging with one hinge only. The toilet made a long&loud honking sound after flushing. I'm sure the whole building knew when it was used...

The balcony chairs and table were basic white plastic stuff, not the nice wooden and/or metal furniture as in some other balconies in the same hotel! The air conditioner's "fan unit" was installed INSIDE the balcony which is simply stupid. Now it blows hot air towards you and back to the room, if the door is open (there is no sensor to switch the air conditioner off if the door is open). So, all this made us choose the second, smaller balcony to read and relax after late dinner.

The small is kitchen is adequate but there is no coffee maker or anything. The lady in the reception was kind to give us a water boiler when we asked. Big thanks for that but could something like that be included to the rooms by default? The fridge didn't get very cool even at max power, the beer simply did not reach the recommended coldness level :(

The water taps in the toilet were almost stuck, there was nothing on the wall (anymore) to lock the shower on. For such a large room the toilet is very small, you barely get in and you literally side-hug the sink while sitting in there.

The free WI-FI was great but only close to the reception and pool area. In our building it was unreachable inside the room and in the balcony it was just barely working but breaking off often.

The pool is very nice and clean, recently built, I think. It's small but enough for a quick dip after a long and hot adventure in the city. The metal pipes sprouting water with huge pressure to your neck won't operate during siesta. They also get tired due to heat? :) There are actually three but only one works.

The safe is free, which is great. It resides in the reception and you need staff help to get to it.

The air conditioning is free. But like said, the fan unit is there to ruin your balcony experience if you keep it on at the same time...

Cleaning was excellent. The floor was clean, towels changed etc. all taken care of very well.

So in summary, at least our double room needs a lot of basic maintenance. Don't expect anything fancy unless you book a renovated room. And to avoid worst of the noise, ask not be located on lower floor alongside Kinidarou street during peak of the season. For best WIFI, go close to reception and pool.

Room Tip: A good basic hotel, can be better with a renovated room, and not alongside the Kinidarou street.

We stayed here for seven nights . Room very big it was for five people so plenty of room for the two of us . Nice big bed and clean sheets and towels . Kitchen with all we needed to do small snacks we asked for a iron and they gave us one for the time we were there . It only had a small balcony. In the side street but we were right by the pool so we could use the poolside to sit by and it was not busy when we were there .The pool was small but clean . We were taken to the port on our departure .

We were originally in a basement room which was ok but the wifi didn't work and neither did the fridge. The owner moved us upstairs to a room with a working fridge . The room had a small balcony, tv, kitchenette, and was clean. The wifi in this room worked pretty good. The owners are really helpful and accommodating. They picked us up at the port and dropped us off as well. The hotel is close to the beach and town. There is a large supermarket about 5 minutes away that has everything and takes credit card. The hotel has a small pool in the other building .The cheapest rooms are in the basement and the wifi doesn't work there. We rented a scooter for 10 Euro for one day but it's only 7 Euro if you rent for two. Some of the nicest beaches are out of town so it is worth having a scooter or ATV.

Room Tip: The cheapest rooms are in the basement but the wifi didn't work in our room.

We had an upgraded double, the suite was very clean and tidy, had all the cooking utensils needed, still slighlty basic for the price. Air con bathroom and bed all good. Nice accomodation in the middle of Naxos centre.
