Despina's Rooms
Ranked #34 of 57 Hotels in Naxos Town
Reviewed 28 September 2012

We stayed at Despina's rooms for 8 nights in September. We had booked in originally for 2 nights but when we arrived and saw the place and met Despina and her daughter Nina, we decided to spend the rest of our holiday there. The place is in a fantastic location, up the winding streets of Naxos just under the Kastro. The rooms are spotless, ours had a balcony with view of the harbour and there is a wonderful view from the rooftop where we spend nearly every evening watching the sun go down with a local beer.
There is a small kitchen with limited facilities but our room had a fridge.
This place is fantastic value for money and the genuine friendliness is hard to match.

We had 4 great nights at Despina in a room with bathroom and fridge. Although our room was not very big, we enjoyed the view on the sea and could also go to the rooftop to sunbathe/have a drink/take breakfast. Great location in the city and in the island to enjoy your time in Naxos! There is also a small kitchen to prepare breakfast!!

We found the place by following small sinces in the labyrinth of Naxos. The old lady at the hotel is super cute and super nice. We got a very nice room (Number 4) with view to the sea.

Only problem was that its quite noisy from the other guest when they are talking to eachother and moving furnitures arround.

Would take this place absolutly again!

I have stayed here every summer for a decade and will not consider staying anywere else when visiting Naxos. If you like staying in the midst of greek village life and appreciate real hospitality this is the place to stay. It is great to be in the midst of everything and wander through the alleys early morning or late at night. Rooms are very simple, with fridge and tiny bathrooms, but spotlessly clean and with a geuine greek feel. Nina and Despina will show you genuine greek hospitality and other guest are more often than not people who keep coming back.

We stayed in one of the bedrooms on the roof. Fantastic views over Naxos and only a quick walk down to the harbour. Lovely owners help make this an ideal place to stay in Naxos.

Room Tip: Roof rooms are the best value.

We are a group of Norwegians, single and couples, who have stayed at Despina's rooms in June or July for years and years. The location inside the Medieval town makes it cool, quiet and safe, and free of mosquitoes! The host family of three generations is also very nice and helpful, and the open roof is a splendid place to see the sunset and get into the right mood for supper.

We loved the location of Despina's Rooms in the warren of laneways of the historic Kastro area. It is an historic family home offering excllent views of the harbour and temple of Apollo. As charming as these alleyways are they make it difficult to find Despina's rooms initially. Just keeping asking. Within this labyrinth there are a number of very pleasant little restaurants nearby. The rooms are comfortable although I found the beds somewhat small. Despina herself is very affable. I have no hestitation in recommending this budget accommodation.
