“Magical Mantraki!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

We had a fabulous stay at the Mantraki hotel. The hotel itself was perfect, it had an authentic and traditional feel both inside and out. Our apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfy!! We were thrilled with the stunning view of the Marina from our balcony. A very relaxing and peaceful place to stay yet excellent location for the many bars, restaurants and shops that Agios Nikolaos has to offer. Thank you to the owners, Costas and Maria who were very friendly and welcoming. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back!! A great stay in a wonderful friendly hotel!

The hotel Mandraki in Ag. Nicolaous was a great experience. The apartment was very clean, big enough and full equipped. The beds were really good!!
We had a great view over the small port and and the nights were quiet. The owner Kostas and Maria are very kind. Always interested in a small (or bigger) talk, they help you whenever they can.
We had a great time and will come back for sure.

Really good location, very comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome by all.
Our room had a great view of the marina - and we had our breakfast on the balcony
most days.
We are looking forward to staying with Matraki again next year.

Room Tip: Room 404 was perfect with great view

Agois Nikolaos is a small but beautiful town. Mantraki architecturally is in a local traditional style, which is very appealing. It is located in a quiet area close to the sea and it is only a short walk to the beach, the port area, a well stocked supermarket and the famous lake with it's many cafes and restaurants. Mantraki has a wonderful family atmosphere which you do not get at most modern hotels. It was clean and tidy. The staff were always very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. You may even be entertained to live traditional Cretan music in the evening, and meet and chat to your fellow guests who come from all over the world. Our apartment comprised two rooms and a tiolet/shower room. In the lounge was a sofa bed, table and chairs and a fully equipped kitchenette, where simple meals can be easily prepared. The airconditioning unit was also in this room and worked very well and was not noisy. The separate bedroom comprised a hanging place and drawers for our clothes, two comfortable beds and a dressing table and chair. Our only regret is that we did not visit and stay at Mantraki before. We will certainly hope to again in the future. It was a holiday that will remain with fond memories with us for ever. Alan & Joan

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies, however seven rooms face the sea, the other seven face the street

As a traveller and an architect I can say that "Mantraki" is an astonishing place to stay! It's unique character influenced by the traditional and ethnique architecture of the 70's and 80's makes the difference from the usual holiday hotels. The incredible view to the port of Agios Nicolaos could convince anyone to enjoy his coffee or his lunch at the great terraces of the apartments. The stuff is pretty familiar, kind and careful! I stayed there for 5 days with my girlfriend and I was completely satisfied. As a matter of tast, I loved its unique character and taste of decoration, I prefer this than another IKEA-modern room with compact equipment - I loved the decoration and the build-up furniture. I would suggest "Mantraki" to every traveller that wants to stay in a picturesque, hospital place, in the heart of Agios Nikolaos.

We were lucky to decide our vacation to include Ag.Nikolaos/Crete and especially to be accomodated to "Mantraki Hotel".
We were welcomed on 23rd July 11 by the desk staff and all our 5 days stay was excellent.
Our Department was quite large, comfort, clean with good fuctionality, but the most wonderful was the view!
We would choose to stay again in our future summer vacations.

Beautiful and functional place. Close to the city center of Agios Nikolaos (5 minutes walking) but very quiet and relaxing.
Clean apartments, very functional for 3/4 persons with a wonderful sea view on the yacht port and the gulf.
The atmosphere, the reception and the management are very warm and very focused on the customer needs.
Some night is possible to enjoy a music session of typical greek and international music with accordion, guitar and a glass of raki, the typical cretan spirit.
Very good quality/price ratio.
