We stayed at Studio Athina as part of our 3-week honeymoon vacation. Because it was the end of the season, we received good rates and enjoyed the quieter atmosphere.
The rooms were very clean and comfortable, though we spent most of our time outdoors. The best part was Athina, who patiently answered all our questions and helped us with everything we needed, from booking tours to passing on messages to advising about schedules, restaurants, etc. She really made our stay. A favourite also was the location, just a few steps from plaka beach and a few area restaurants, we found ourselves in the perfect spot to explore the island via atv, just a few ks away from naxos town and a short bike/scooter ride to other villages. We will definitely be back!

Stayed here for a week at the end of a 3-week trip around the Cyclades. Had paid triple for a room in Santorini the week before but Athina was was the highlight of our trip, hands down.

Sure the rooms need just a little updating (rooms at the Muses are newer I believe) but are perfectly comfortable.
Can't say enough good things about Athina herself, she was ABSOLUTELY wonderful, as was the rest of the staff.

Had the most relaxing, wonderful stay and will absolutely return!!

This is the first time I ever booked a hotel based on reviews on TripAdvisor and was disappointed… First of all, this hotel has plain rooms that you can find anywhere (nothing special) but it is very expensive in relation to similar rooms even in the same area. Second, we were not treated in a nice way.
Prior to our visit, we asked the owner on whether the room was noisy or situated near bars/busy roads etc and she said it was not. Imagine our surprise when we arrived, only to discover that the rooms are located in the most busy part of the area, in front of the main Plaka road, full of cars, motorcycles, buses etc, facing three swimming pools full of children playing and -on top of that- our room was facing a bar that had loud music on. We complained to her but the reply we got was that “she personally has no problem sleeping while listening to music”, that “the wind will help the noise fade out” and that in case we did not like our room, we could simply go to another hotel, as she would keep the 35% she had asked in advance anyway. You see, other hotels just ask you to pay a deposit of the first night, but this time I was asked by the owner not only to pay a deposit of 35%, but also to sign a paper before you go and fax it to her, stating I would pay 50% of our entire stay, even if I stayed just for one night and then decide to go to another hotel. I was so surprised by her attitude that, to be honest, did not reply to her in a gentle manner, but decided to stay, in order not to lose our deposit plus the time looking for another place to stay and also because the room itself seemed OK and had a nice view. She actually said it was her best room in Athina-not Muses.
The result was that we were forced to keep our windows shut during our stay in order to prevent noise and we also faced other problems such as small ants in the room, lack of hot water late in the evening on one of the five nights of our stay, changing of linens not very often (that was ALSO indicated in the letter we signed, it said we would have to pay even MORE to get clean towels every day!), and some more young children playing just outside our door early in the morning, because some rooms that probably do not have views on their own, are allowed to use tables in the common areas and the corridors outside your room. The room itself was neither special nor newly-built, the bathroom was tiny and had old plastic utensils and the in kitchen some utensils should have been replaced. As for the “pastries and coffee provided throughout the day” at the reception area, it was plain cheese and/or other type of pie cut in tiny pieces, baby croissants and coffee, certainly not making up for a full breakfast that should be included in such a high price for plain rooms in Naxos.
It is a pity since this hotel is next to the beautiful beach of Plaka and the owner seems to make efforts in preserving her property and garden. In my opinion it is not ideal for young couples or people that generally need peace and quiet but it could be for family holidays with young children, definitely in a MUCH lower price and as long as they fix the problems I referred to; also, if they were more precise to those who call them and ask information prior to making a reservation. In our circumstances, we regret staying there.

We stayed in the Muses section of this small apartment complex for 6 nights. 2 adults and 2 x 21 year olds.Everything you read in the reviews is accurate. This place works well because its family run and Athina is just brilliant. Our apartment was always clean - towels changed every 2 days and sheets every 3 days - we were even given beach towels. Although our apartment had a kitchen as it was in our bedroom we didn't use it and Athina supplies coffee and cakes baked by her Mum each morning. Downstairs in our apartment (Thalia Suite) was large but insufficient cupboard space - Athina is rectifying that for next year and also hoping to open up one end of the room to provide a terrace. Upstairs was smallish with a hob and sink down one side and a balcony with a sea view across a stretch of garden. Bathroom downstairs was fine, but the one up was really, really small! Any way it didn't matter because all else was fine. Pool is great, beach is over the road - plenty of beach bars and restaurants in walking distance.
Athina organised car rental and told us all the routes on the island, where to eat etc. It takes 15/20 mins to drive to Naxos or there is a bus which goes every 30 mins until 1.00 in the morning from a short walk away. If you don't want to stay directly in a town but want a great beach and a really friendly place to stay - this is for you. Oh, and there is high speed wifi available for your PDA or laptop!

Athina also arranged a taxi to collect us from the ferry (€12) and it was there waiting for us in the scrum when the ferry arrives. All very efficient. I wish some 4/5* hotels were this efficient and pleasant to stay in

Although it has been 4 years since we last stayed at Athena's I must echo the recent sentiments that it is top notch. While living in Europe we spent many a summer island hopping around greece and always found our way back to naxos to stay at athena's. Delighted to hear that 5 years later it still seems untouched and unforgettable. Hope to get back some day soon with our wee ones.
