Mantraki Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Just returned from our third stay at the Mantraki, very conveniently situated apartments close to shops and restaurants in Ag Nik, but in a quiet back street. As always, Costas and Maria, the warm and friendly owners, were very welcoming and made the stay an immensely pleasurable one. They gave us lots of ideas for places to visit. Our apartment was spacious and comfortable and of course very clean. The kitchen was well-equipped and the linen was changed regularly. From the balcony we had a wonderful view over the Marina and the lovely Bay of Mirabello beyond. We would heartily recommend the Mantraki to anyone thinking of visiting this delightful town on the wonderful island of Crete.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies overlooking the Marina and bay have especially great views.

We stayed in an apartment with sea view for 4 nights, traditional architecture makes the difference from the usual holiday hotels, very clean and spacious room, amazing view from our balcony!

We also had breakfast every morning the time that we choose in our room!! Fantastic service.

The best of all was the young owners who run this Hotel. Leo, Giorgos, Eirini & Vangelis are ready every moment to help you and answer every single question you might have :)
and if you are lucky (when they are not really tired) you will have the oportunity to sit with them some nights and enjoy a music session of typical greek and international music.
Raki or similar drink obviously is offered and believe me this is the typical cretan spirit!!

Thank you all for our great time, see you soon (for sure) and keep up the good work!!
Tim & Kristi

I returned to Ag Nic after 10 years and it's too busy and expensive. Finding this hotel was a stoke of genius and they were generally excited to have us stay & couldn't do enough for us. The lady spent 15 mins pointing out all the places of interest in the area. Advised us to drive to Plaka to go to Spinalonga rather than cruise from Ag Nic and pointed out where all the Greeks eat (better food, cheaper prices). The hotel was very clean and the rooms were big. It's a budget hotel but with 5 star service. Recommend for budget conscious

My friend and I have just spent 9 wonderful days at Mantraki apartments. We had lots of helpful email advice re transfers etc with Costas the owner before arriving , and we were looked after by his lovely family Irene, Leontina Vangelis and George who welcomed us to their authentic Greek apartments and even entertained us and fellow guests singing and playing an array of greek music. Nothing was too much trouble from recommendations of tavernas to helping us hire a car and sort a day trip to Santorini . Our room overlooking the marina was just as we had requested and the view was stunning, we even had breakfast in bed one morning!, Its 3 mins walk from the lake and the harbour and only 1 min from marina and beach. If you are going to Agios Nikolaos you must stay here !!

Room Tip: Best view is from room 404

We stayed in an apartment with sea view for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The apartment was very comfortable, clean and homely. The view of the sea and mountains was brilliant - perfect scenery while relaxing or eating in the balcony.
Kostas and Maria make a very good team! They were very helpful, kind and friendly. Hospitality was great. We got to know about some of the Greek drinks, snacks, traditions, and music (Kostas is great with the accordion) through them. As they have experience with other countries through their life before retirement, it was also lovely to chat with them about different cultures. We look forward to our next stay there.

Room Tip: We loved our room with the sea view!

On the way to Heraklion, we stopped late in the afternoon in Agios Nikolaos and wanted to find somewhere to stay overnight. First person we met near the parking place pointed us to Mantraki, saying that this is a nice place to stay. Well, it was worthwhile. We were greeted by Maria, who showed us an appartment overlooking marina, a spacious place, with balconies and a big living room/kitchenette. Great place to stay, close to the downtown, beatuful lake and tavernas.Next morning we met Costa, Maria's husband, a nice person to talk to. We were sitting and chatting like we knew each other for years. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Maria and Costa again for their hospitality ''par excelence''. Hope, we see you again.
