“Great place to enjoy Naxos”
Reviewed 12 August 2009

My wife, our 18m old son and I, spent the last two weeks of July at Irini Studios. The rooms are situated at Agia Anna, near (3min walk) one of the best beaches of the island. The rooms are in very good condition and have TV, refrigerator, sink and hot plate. The room was cleaned every other day but when we needed an extra clean up and change of sheets, since our son had made a mess, it was done. Irini herself, and the rest of her family , were very friendly and she provided us during our stay with eggs, melons, water melons and tomatoes which they produce, for our son. Nearby you can find two mini markets (in one you can also find domestic and foreign press) . And last but not least nearby you can find the Gorgona taverna which serves really great food at very reasonable prices.

In July of 2008 we booked with Irini Studios to get a Sea-View room that was close to the beach at a reasonable cost.

That was not what we received!! Story below:

Upon arriving, there was no main entrance so we stood in the drive for a moment. Suddenly a lady showed up in her car and said "come - new hotel - this hotel full". You can imagine our surprise and uncertainty about who this lady was or what had happened to our booking!!

With her broken English we had no idea where she was going to take us, but she insisted Irini was full and that she would put us in a different hotel.

She took us to her second hotel, a new place in a nearby area on the beach of Prokopios.

They seemed to think this was all very normal and since the new place was nice, it was hard to complain. But it was in a slightly different area and our room did NOT have a sea view!

The oddness continued when they took our passports (to ensure we'd pay later) and when we went to check out, they insisted on cash only because this was their 'new hotel' and wasn't setup for cards.

Irini's son was even waiting to drive me to the cash point on his scooter!

Luckily we were checking out early and well in advance of our ferry, but if it had been last minute, it could have been a real disaster as there is a cash withdraw limit on most debit cards and we could have missed our ferry!!

I asked for a receipt which they hand wrote with the wrong amount, but so be it...

Lastly, their website is very good but claims things like free transfers which were not provided and they did not respond to emails asking questions about our booking and transfers.

Luckily we had a great holiday and the new hotel was great - but when you pay for one thing (after months of holiday hunting) and get something else upon arrival, it adds a level of stress!!

Their laid back attitude is great to set the holiday mood, but it's really bad when they just ship you between hotels and demand cash only on check out!!!


New hotel review (they said it doesn't have a name yet):
+ pool
+ close to beach
+ brand new
+ directly across from small grocery shop
+ great rooms
+ very clean rooms, new towels/etc daily

- directly beside petrol station
- having a pool meant family bookings and the kids voices echoed loudly through the corridors in the early morning
- thin walls (kids banging, that sort of thing - couldn't hear conversations)
- on main road
- some rooms have view directly onto petrol station

Was very happy with this Studio. It was not luxury, but it was comfortable and clean and very practical with the kitchenette. The balcony was great for breakfast in the morning!

The Studio is about 2 Minutes from Agia Anna Beach. Busses stop nearby. There is a store nearby. You can also rent transportation. The beach is great.

Try the horseback riding at Stamatis nearby.

Owner very friendly. Room cleaned every two days.

I'd go back!

  • Liked — Great value for the price. Practical Kitchen. Balcony.
  • Disliked — Two twin beds pushed together not so romantic ;-)

Stayed here 12 nights 2ad & 2ch after booking direct with owner. Situated 3/4min walk to Agia Anna beach, restaurants/cafes. Supermarket 1min walk away. Local beach very good for young families with plenty of shops, sunbed hire, places to eat etc, however, gets very busy. Better option is to walk (10/15mins) to Plaka/Maragas beach as more room to 'spread out' - plenty of really good places to eat there too. Irini has about 10 rooms. Had apartment/studio (No16) which had bathroom, kitchen, double bedroom and sitting room with 3 single beds in it. Very spacious. Did not have seaview though, but many of the double rooms do. Wondered if this was going to be a quiet place as just one block back from the busy Hora/Plaka road and pleased to say it was. Owner, Margariti Irini, incredibly helpful and pleasant. The rooms were 'newish' and very clean. Irini changed towels/sheets every other day and brought us many gifts of watermelon, eggs etc etc! Would definately stay here again.

  • Liked — Clean and quiet
  • Disliked — No seaview from our apartment

I was in Irini Studios during the month of August 2006 with my wife. Irini is the name of the owner, a loving motherly greek woman that runs this property in a quiet and very organized way. The studio we had was overlooking the central courtyard, full of plants and flowers. In walking distance is the charming village of Aghia Anna, with many bars and restaurants on the seafront, whilst just a couple of bus stops away is the Plaka beach, a 6 Km streach of beautiful sand. The property is small and it is very easy to become friends with both the owners family and the other guests. Don't expect 5 star services; but do expect to have all you need from a room: a clean environment, a little kitchen with your own fridge and air conditioning. Infact you don't really need the AC as nights in Naxos are cool and breezy. If you wish to visit the Cyclades Islands, Naxos can be a much better choice han the most popular (and crowded) islands like Mykonos or Santorini.

  • Liked — The family atmosphere
  • Disliked — No internet access, unless you want to use the owners pc
