“Had a great time”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

We had a great welcome by the owner with a nice welcome drink (read big glass of ouzo with some water and ice and nuts). They are really helpfull and friendly! The room is large and comfortable and with a sea view on the small harbor. The beds are nice and we had a nice shower! The hotel has a good central location close the centre and the coast. A small beach is near the hotel with good restaurants.

This is a family run hotel that is very special. It is quiet, comfy and cordial. It is all the good things that reviewers have said below in other reviews. If you visit Crete, you could do no better than stay at Mantraki. Thank you Costa, Marie, George and Lyontinee (sp?).

A new home away from home. I can't wait to go back next summer.

Room Tip: This hotel does not have a health club...I made an error when writing my review. However, it is cen...

Good standard, clean, practical, comfortable and reasonably priced. High value for the money! Located very nicely in town center, close to beaches, restaurants and shops. Family driven with an exceptional non-intrusive warmheartedness. Only difficulty we had was parking, but the hosts helped us with this as well.

This is an unbiased review.

I have been to many hotels for both business and holidays - now I can tell you all without any worries that this THE friendliest hotel I have EVER stayed at. Has it faults - of course.. everywhere has if you look for them (and observed issues were passed to the owners over a Metaxa) but friendly?? Hells bells it could not be friendlier. NOTHING is too much trouble at all.

Anything we wanted was provided AND MORE.

The location is good - the centre of Agios is just a five minute walk away. The lake is only 10 minutes away. Out of the hotel and turn left takes you to the harbour after only 5 minutes and is the cheapest for food if your that way inclined.

We will be returning - I promise!!

Sept 2013. Just got back from two weeks at Mantraki, where the accommodation was very clean and the staff were warm and friendly. This family run apartment complex is ideally situated between the lake and marina at Agios and the shops are also close by. On our arrival, which was late in the evening, my friends and I were greeted by Vangelis and Irene who made us very welcome and this continued throughout the two weeks by the rest of the family Leontini, George, Maria and Costas. I would have no hesitiation in recommending Mantraki to anyone who is thinking of visiting Agios as it is also very reasonably priced, and I hope to go back in the not too distant future. Thank for a wonderful stay in your beautiful country.

Room Tip: We did not have a sea view but it was still nice to sit on the balcony overlooking the town.

August 2013 is the busy time in Crete, and yet we met people with time to show you where to go, and what to eat. This is a perfect small hotel with nice and cozy apartments. we had one with balcony overlooking harbour.
At the same time we experienced how it felt to ride, what i guess must be the worlds smallest elevator.

Mantraki is a family runned business. Two very friendly daughters run the business and give you a very welcome feeling from arrival till departure. They help you out finding your way, always with a smile.
The appartments are clean and rather spacious. There is sea view and city view, or both. The higher you come, the more view. Fridge and kitchen with oven are available, as well as tv, wifi and a clean and comfortable bathroom. The city centre as well as the beach are within walking distance. You can have breakfast served in your room (!) or just walk to the bakery around the corner.
Mantraki is a very good place to stay!
