“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!! The best Greek hospitality experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

No idea where to start... Gerontakis Studios gave us the best hospitality we have ever experienced in Greece. Nektarios picked us up from the port and on the way to the studios he showed us Naxos Town to get an idea of where we are. The studios are very spacious and spotless clean. The rooms get cleaned every single day except on sundays. BIG thank you to the mother & sister of Nektarios who were always very friendly and did a great job keeping the place clean. Nektarios was “very friendly and helpfull” at all times without being pushy. We felt very welcome here and like I said before we never had such a wonderful, friendly, smiley, motivated host like Nektarios. We travel a lot, but Gerontakis Studios is by far one of the “best hospitality experiences". We will not doubt to choose Gerontakis Studios again for our next visit to Naxos. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!

There were four of us travelling together so it was relaxing to have a room to yourself . Each room is clean and basic. Initially we felt we were a little out of the action but a 5 minute stroll revealed beaches, the Port and hundreds of taverners. The highlight was our host -Nektarios , he is a delightfully hospitable and willing to assist in any way.

Room Tip: Good value

We stayed 3 nights in an apartment which accommodated 5 of us with an extra bed in one of the rooms. The place was clean with a small kitchen that was good enough for cooking simple meals and boiling water. There was daily housekeeping service and our plates were also washed daily. The hotel is conveniently located with a bus stop that is just a minute away and a supermarket close by. The Agios Georgios beach which is within a 10 to 15 minutes walk.

Nektarios (the owner) greeted us at the port and picked us up on the day we arrived and sent us to the port on the day we left. He was very helpful in showing us where things were around Naxos and recommended us 2 good restaurants (reasonably priced and delicious dishes) by the beach front.

The hotel is located just a short distance away from the main road which can be a little noisy at night. However, it has its own parking space hence came in useful when we rented a car for 2 days. Rooms facing the car park area will probably be quieter. Since Naxos town is not very big, everything is within walking distance including the old town of Kastro. If you do want to visit the villages outside Hora, I’d recommend driving around as it is easy and there are not many cars on the road. It also makes it much easier & more flexible in terms of timing when you head out to the nicer beaches down south. The hotel’s location not far from Kastro is a good start off point to visit the entire island and comfortable to stay in, definitely very good value for money.

Clean, well maintained, serviced daily. Bakery 20m away, Supermarket 100m away, bus stop opposite - all without intrudung on the calm. I was happier staying here and travelling out to beaches like Prokopios and Mikri Vigla than staying there in what seemed to be more fully tourist areas. At Gerontakis you are on the edge of the main town, only 10 minutes from a very good beech (Giorgios) which shelves very gently. Walking distance from many restaurants. Very happy with location. Very happy with appartment. Looking forward to going back.

Naxos has got to be my favourite Greek island and the Gerontakis studio helped me come to that conclusion.

We turned up at the port looking for rooms and the owner was very accommodating, he carried our bags and took us by bus back to the studio, which was in a great location near to the main beach of Naxos Town and also to the town centre/sea front.

Everything was very clean and the hotel, while tucked away, was still pretty and kept clean. Overall, I would definitely return to Naxos and to Gerontakis.

What a great deal! Only 25 euros for a room meant for three. The studio is located outside of the city center, which is great because you can avoid the touristy vibe. It's close to everything you could need - car/bike rentals (3 minute walk), a big grocery store with toiletry items like soap which isn't included with the room (3 minute walk), the best restaurant in Naxos city To Elliniko (5 minute walk), the beach (7 minute walk), the city center and the port (10 minute walk). The room was spacious and clean and has AC and heating. Nick picked us up from the port and drove us back with no extra charge, was very accommodating and helpful, and offered a great recommendation for ATV/moped rental. I would definitely stay there again, thanks Nick!

Nick was hilarious and very accommodating. Picked us up and dropped us off at the port. 25 euro for 2 of us in a room meant for three. Not much to say because everything worked out well. The location is a little out of the main town, but very close to a bakery, supermarket, and multiple places to rent bikes,mopeds,atvs etc. Great guy, great studio.
