“Could have not hoped for better”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

After renting a scooter we left the luggage behind to go find an hotel. We found this one almost by mistake. We met the couple owning the 18-room hotel and they ealily convinced us to stay there. They are so welcoming! Manolis kindly offered to give me a ride to the port to get the luggage. The hotel has breahtaking view on the port and sea. The breakfast is prepared at the time you want by the couple. Everything is perfect. They didn't have green tea the first morning, so they went out and bought some for the next.
Rooms are perfectly cleaned everyday, and huge! It's more like a suite with the little cuisinette and all. We stayed home and cooked one night admiring the view while eating.
If you're not renting a car or a scooter, you might find this hotel a little far to walk... but if you're not renting anything, you should not be in Naxos anyway, you'd be missing out too much...

Magic View Apartments are a perfect budget stay for a getaway in Naxos.

Clean and comfortable with beautiful views over the blue waters of the bay below, the smaller apartments are perfect for budget travellers. Two single beds had crisp clean linen and comfortable pillows and the apartment had air-conditioning, remote-controlled television and a small fridge. Shutter-doors opened onto a small courtyard with table and chairs that overlooked the bay - perfect for alfresco dining. The bathroom was clean and neat with shower, toilet and basin and the apartment was cleaned once a day. The owners, Nikos and his wife were wonderful - very helpful and friendly. Airport/ferry pick-up is included in the room rate, which is great!

We stayed in the hotel in late July 2013. The hotel owners who lived on the bottom floor were more than helpful and just genuinely good people who cared about the guests. The room was perfect for a couple like us it had air con free wifi clean showers and crisp white sheets. The view from our balcony was just awesome and private enough for us to sleep with the doors open to make the most of the ocean breeze and sounds. The location of the hotel was also great. It was away from the hustle and bustle of Naxos town and port but still only a short pleasant walk into town. We truly couldn't recommend the hotel enough!

Stayed in a sea view room with a 180 degree view of the sea with a view of the portara as well. Incredibly warm and welcoming owners -- absolutely wonderful. Close to the main area of the port, but a walk down a pretty steep hill (not a good location for those who can't hike up a *little* hill each evening).
A/C available but not necessary.
Simple room that was clean and cleaned daily. Small kitchenette with the basics provided.
Cost was totally affordable for a longer stay.
I would stay again and again.

(Sorry for my English as I'm French) The location is perfect ! The grotta is really a nice place ! When you see it from the Portara, the view is breathtaking ! The walk to the Portara or to the port is really nice! It's a few minutes walk from the old Naxos. Very convenient and very cheap ! What else do you need? The room had a balcony with a sea view on the Portara. Really nice ! The rooms are very basically furnished but we did not care much, as we spent most of the time visiting the island.

The owners are really super nice. I had forgotten the battery of both my i-phone and camera there and they shipped it to my hotel in Mykonos. It was much appreciated ! I am sure some other hotel managers would not have cared much about it, but Maria was nice enough to do it very quickly. You see that these people care about their guests !

Tips : go to the following villages Chalki, Filoti, Apereinthos (we loved it!!!!!) Go to Aliki beach, Glyfada and Kastraki beach. Amazing beaches !!!!!!!!!!!! Plaka and Marangas are really nice too

A hotel with a magic view!
The view from our room was astonishing! Worth staying in for the sunset - a really magical experience.
The hotel is situated in a short distance from the city center. There are shops, restaurants nearby.
The owners (a young couple) are very friendly and helpful!

I had the pleasure of staying at this family run hotel. The couple was very kind and welcoming. Everything was within walking distance which was very important to me. I would definitely recommend this property as it was very clean, had everything you could need (including a kitchenette) and a real magical view from the balcony!
