First off, the family that runs this perfect little hotel was absolutely wonderful. They really went above and beyond to help make us feel welcome. Costas even let us follow him out of town so I wouldn't get lost. They are simply the nicest people and made the visit special. The rooms were also filled with everything we needed and... More

We spent 5 nights in Mantraki Hotel, after a bus-ride from Heraklion that took about 90 minutes. At the bus station in Agios Nikolaos, we took a taxi that cost 5 EUR. The hotel is within walking distance, but is not very easy to find if you are a first-timer in the town. When arriving the hotel, we were welcomed... More

We stayed as a couple in Oct 15 for two nights. The owners Maria and Nikos were very friendly and made us feel very welcome on our arrival. Nikos gave us some very good tips 'as a local' on all the best places to see and what to do. During our stay nothing was ever a problem for Maria and... More

We loved this hotel and would definitely go back to it next time we are on the island. It’s located within a 10-15 minute walk to several beaches, the city center, and many restaurants. The room we were in was large and had almost a full kitchen. There were several balcony’s with mosquito netting if you like to leave the... More

Warm welcoming owners Maria and Nikos always friendly and willing to give directions or suggestions. Maria did a full load of laundry for us for only 5 Euro. Location is somewhat difficult to find the first time if you don’t know the specific location or understand the narrow one way streets of Agios Nikolaos but once we figured that out... More

The apartment has a nice Greek style atmosphere: some of the furniture are built with walls and overall you have the feeling to be in Greece and not in a random place. The apartment is really big with two nice balcony and a good size bathroom. The kitchenette is fully furnished. The hotel is near the lake and the port:... More

We stayed in the Mantraki for 5 nights and it turned out to be a great choice - spacious 1 bedroom apartment with genuine period character and a sea view. The hotel itself was a perfect base for exploring the town and the various beaches and bits of sea front. Only downside was locating the hotel in the first instance... More

Had a great stay at Mantraki during Easter this year. The hotel is located in a perfect spot, just off the main section of Agios Nikolas, so it was very peaceful & easy to find parking, but within minutes you can walk to everything you need. Especially during Easter we were a short walk away from the wonderful celebration at... More
