“Excellent studios”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

My family of 3 stayed at Mike's in August 2012.

I was attracted by the very encouraging reviews of the apartments and the price! It turned out that none of us was disappointed, as this place really is a little gem.

I booked the apartments using the internet with no trouble, although it would have been nice to get a confirmation of the booking direct from the owner.

Mike is a very friendly and helpful Greek, who picked us up from the ferry and dropped us off, with no charge. He showed us to our apartment, which was a very well equipped self-catering studio apartment. We also had a balcony upon which we could eat our meal.

The room was well decorated, very clean and the towels were regularly changed.

We were able to cook plenty of tasty meals and it was straightforward to get supplies in the town. If you eat out there are loads of restaurants and they all seem to serve tasty, unpretentious food.

The location of the studios is first class, being in a quiet part of town, yet with easy walking distance to the town one way and the beach the other.

One big positive is that the temperature on Naxos tends to be moderated by a lovely,cooling breeze.

Virtually without exception we found the Greeks to be extremely welcoming and helpful.

My son and I had no problems hiring bikes for a jaunt up the coast and we all had a very enjoyable day trip to the beautiful Santorini.

This is a great set of studios. Well done Mike!

Having stayed at numerous places in a 4 month holiday through Europe, Mikes Studios would be the best value for money place I have stayed at.

Combine proximity to the beach, warm hospitality, big rooms, balcony, rooms cleaned and tidied daily, plus big Mike who is a real character....watch him he has a real twinkle in his eye and a dry sense of humour, and you have everything you need for a great stay on Naxos.

Mike's mum also brought in fruit and vegies which she left in the room, as a guest this goes way beyond normal expectations. I might add that I was picked up and dropped at the port on arrival/departure.

The studios are located some 200 metres from the beach,far enough away yet close enough to really enjoy your stay here. Its also a 5 minute walk to the very centre of town.

This place is a real find, so if your planning to come to Naxos Mikes Studios are highly recommended.....you will really like it here .Coming to Naxos was really an after thought for me but this is really a vibrant little island....so glad I came.

Room Tip: Had Studio 6 which has 2 balconies....great room

We arrived in June 2012 chose this place to stay from the 'reps' on the dock side. Mike is a huge gentle giant. We loved the room with its fantastic view across the road to a bougainvillea. Mike's mum cleaned the room, took in and folded my washing, put flowers in our room and even produced some apricots. Near to St. Georges beach and shops with restaurants nearby. Excellent value for money.

We have just got back from a lovely 2 weeks at Mike's studios. We were lucky to get the 2 bed studio which was perfect as we have young children. Mike was very friendly and so helpful, as was his lovely mum who even did some washing for us! The rooms were cleaned every day and left spotless. Very highly recommended!!!

Mike is a character. Nearly mugs you as you come off the ferry! Gentle giant though, who wants you to enjoy staying with him. Great place. Great location. One of the best bargains I got in 3 months of island hopping.

We arrived in Naxos after a wonderful stay in Santorini in the middle of August.
We liked Naxos very much: by renting 2 motorbikes we visited the beaches (the beautiful ones are in the south-west cost) and we went on the north up to the nice city of Apollon. We also liked the capital very much with a lot of shops and bars .
We booked a 4 persons accomodation in Naxos via internet and we chose Naxos Studios attracted by the very cheap price of the studio despite of this position very close to the capital Hora (5 minutes walk). The owner kinky asked to our questions by email and offered to pick us up from the port for free altough, we discover when we arrive, the distance from their studios was very little (10 minutes walk). We appreciated that.
The studios itself is not bad. It is composed by:
- a room with 4 beds put side by side, a kitchenette fully (more or less) equipped, a wardrobe, a small round table, a dresser with mirror, a satellite TV, air conditioning and a dryer (which however has never worked);
- a very small and basic bathroom with shower not very functional and clean but ok;
- a small terrace look on to a little and quit street (not a really lovely view but it was ok) with a very small round table, 4 chairs and a clothes horse.
We appreciated the tranquillity of the area despite, as I said before, the proximity with the capital, but we found this studio very unconfortable for 4 persons, there was not enough space for all of us to go around or to have dinner in that small table! Our feeling is that they just added 2 beds in a 2 person studio. In addition to that after we paid our room fee on the third of the 5 days we would have stayed there, they did not changed linen and towels anymore (I don't know if the facts are connected but it sounds so!)!!
The cleaning of the room is daily but it is very approximate (we think just tidying up of the kitchenette and rinsing out the sand from the shower) as we found crisps under the beds that we didn't eat and a cockroach coming out from the wardrobe. Fortunately the owner was there in that moment and he helped us chasing it away.
The owners are not very organized: when I asked them a confirmation for our reservation by e-mail she told us that our reservation was for 7 days and not for 5 days as I said. When we arrived we shown her the printing piece of paper from the reservation site and she said is was ok. After 3 days of stay a man came into our room at 8 o'clock in the morning telling us that we had to leave quickly. We shown again our reservation paper and he apologized embarassed. We didn't understand what it was happened.
Anyway a big sign in front of the studio entrance tells that they would have made all their best to make your stay wonderful. We need their help once when the light in the bathrooom didn't work and they actually came to fix it after 10 minutes even if it was 10 o' clock p.m. They are kind after all.
We had a look at the other studios in Naxos and outside they all seems like this one so we don't know if for this price you can find anything better. Maybe we have just been unlucky. We are curious to read other thoughts about this studio by who have stayed there.
