Reviewed July 26, 2008

Excellent rooms and really helpful and friendly proprietor. Very clean, well looked after and maintained grounds. The owner picked us up from the port and even brought his own laptop in for us to use the internet, for free. Good location for beach, restaurants, and the old town.

We stayed for 7 days in July. The rooms were clean and tidy. It had aircon and a tv. There is free wireless internet and the icing on the cake was a hotel laptop which you could take to your room and use until the next person wanted it. Twice we had it for the whole night. Stavros the owner is really helpfull and you always see him bizzing around on his little scooter between his hotels and always has a wave for you. We asked for a double room but got 2 singles pushed together but we did say we wanted the as cheaper room as possible. Its only a 5 min walk from the "main strip" and all the shops. Given the chance i would defo stay here again.

We are a family: 2 adults and 3 children (13, 11 and 4 years) and we stayed at Irene 1 for 4 nights in July 2008.

We made the reservation by phone 2 days before our arrival and we were picked up at the harbor, where our ferry arrived.

The place is nice, clean, comfortable and quiet and the service is very good. The price is fine compared to what we have experienced elsewere similar places on the Greek islands.

The place is in an very comfortable distance from the busy part of town but still close to the beach, shops etc.

We surely can recommend this place.

On a quiet street away from the center of the city. It was a great value for the room size and amenities in the room. We were lost on the way here, called the hotel, and the gentlemen who runs the hotel came to meet us and walked us here. He also told us that if we wanted to use the pool at Irene II, we were welcome to. For the price, location, and friendly staff, I really don't think there is another place on the island of Naxos that comes close.

We stayed here for four nights in May. Room was the smallest in the building but big enough for us (we had access to the communal balcony area where there are two tables with good views). All very clean with good facilities (balcony, kitchenette and hairdryer). Enjoyed the Sunday service in the church next door - mellow and musical, a real treat. Owner easy to get hold of, picked us up at the ferry and good for information. Easy access to beach, town and supermarkets. Nice quiet location.

My wife and I stayed at the Irene1 for 11 nights this June. We both feft that it lived up to it`s description in Lonely Planet and provides great value in the budget price category of accommodation. The rooms are well equipped (TV, A/C, hairdryer, fridge and cooking facilities) and have a separate shower / toilet, as well as a balcony. Access to the beach and Naxos town facilities is less than 10 mins. walk away.
It is a family run concern and Irene`s son, Stavros, is the manager who is both helpful and knowledgeable, and speaks good English. He will both transport you to,and meet you from the ferry terminal.

  • Liked — Comfort and value for money
  • Disliked — ould not park car within 50 meters of property because of small streets

Run by the charming Stavros and his mother Irene in the southeast of Naxos town, the Pension Irene 2 has comfortable and spacious studios with kitchenettes, set by a pool and sundeck. Excellent showers with high pressure and plentiful hot water. Laundry service available. Away from the noisy and overcrowded accommodation grid of Ágios Georgios, but within a few minutes’ walk of the beach, and about 3 minutes’ walk from the bus stop for the beaches of Agos Prokopios, Agía Anna. and Plaka (fabulous). Several supermarkets, bakeries and the summer Cinema Astra are also within a few minutes’ walk. Stavros speaks excellent English, is a wonderful and witty source of information about the island, and can provide transfers for ferries. The slightly older Pension Irene 1 - also studios - is set in an even
quieter area, slightly nearer to the centre of town.
