    Budget rooms are a small Basement that I never saw photos of that rooms at Booking or site , you couldn’t take a shower without make the small bathroom a mess, the elderly owner is at the reception so you can’t find him all the time and it was expensive for the month of September. Ps* the water was little brown.

    Good Location

    The hotel wasn't really what I expected. There was no shower curtain in the bathroom so there was water everywhere in the bathroom after a shower! I stayed at the property for such a short time so didn't use the majority of facilities. I think the hotel/rooms would suit a couple or family who have planned a self-catering holiday.

    I thought the hotel was in an excellent location, although don't rely on Google Maps because it took me everywhere but the hotel so I had to ask for directions in the end. The hosts were very friendly and the rooms are an excellent size. There is a fridge, kettle and a stove to cook your own food and it also had a patio area.

    A little bit noisy as there was a new parking lot that opened opposite the hotel. If the windows are closed then it was ok.

    Great location, within walking distance of the port and lots of shops and restaurants around. We were a family of 4 with 2 teens. Was able to catch multiple tour buses with stops quite nearby. Wonderful hosts, very helpful and friendly. Great sunsets that we could walk to Portara to enjoy.

    The hotel is centrally located in a quieter street in the town. From the welcome by the staff, to the thoughtfulness of leaving a plate of fresh fruit and a bottle of water in the fridge and the hospitality of the vendors our visit was great. Having visited the island 10 years ago we were pleasantly surprised with the same wonderful experience in spite of the development over the years. It hasn’t lost its charm. The hotel’s location made it an ideal base from which to travel around the island. The room was well portioned and very clean. I would return without any reservation.

    Best place to stay on Naxos
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Studio (2 Adults)
    • Stayed 5 nights

    The hotel is placed in the quiet neighborhood close to the Agios Giorgios beach (an ideal localization if You want to sunbathe all the time), the city center, tavernas and shops (f.e. Pagonis). Beware of Google Maps becase it shows an inaccurate location of the building (the entrance is on the back). The owner was an old Greek who was very helpful and treated us like their friends. When we came at the hotel it turned out that our room is not ready so he gave us a more expensive apartment for free for one night. Our room was very clean (cleaned every day), spacious with good strength of WiFi available. Kitchenette was very good equipped so you will not have any problems if You want to cook on you own. Me and my wife have stayed a few times on Naxos but it seems that Lygdamis is one of the best locations that you can choose to sightsee the island. Great value vs. price !

    Although the room was large it was somewhat bare with a third bed partially made up,and a dreary looking bathroom which had a noisy fan that came on everytime the light was switched on.The balcony was tiny and had no view apart from a small adjacent street and the window was in need of replacement due to old age.And rattled if not closed properly which made the room too hot.But the worst culprit were the electric wall plugs that were hanging out of the wall.That could have resulted in a serious event and may have been in that way for some time cus we were staying in Naxos very late September.So not recommended.And the owner tried to pursude us to look at a different room at a higher price when we first arrived.

    The accommodation was in the town but being in a back street was very quiet.The owner was a bit confused as to the price we had booked it for,and for how long.But nevertheless he gave us an invoice on leaving and wished us well.The room itself was a large family size and had a nice courtyard,and shared roof garden with just about views of the distant port.

The Staff were kind and considerate and we were treated to fresh fruit several times during our Stay. The kitchen area was adequate with a good fridge and all the utensils to make a simple meal being close to restaurants Breakfast was the only meal we prepared They also have a Roof Terrace with Patio Furniture where you can take a beer up to and enjoy a drink away from the crowds with a lovely view of Naxos by night. This was a Budget Room but it was excellent value for Money. I certainly would recommend this little Hotel

    The hosts, Evi and Mr. Ioannis, were absolutely phenomenal, extremely friendly and helpful - you would feel like home! Our little one befriended them right away and even scored a present from Evi. Communication with Evi was very good at all times. At arrival she gave us a detailed information into how to explore and enjoy Naxos from a local perspective. Few times at returning to our room we would find a nice surprise in the fridge: a big plate of fresh fruits from Mr. Ioannis. We were given the very room we asked for at the time of booking. It was exactly as described and it met all our expectations: nice, simple and very clean. Watching sunsets from the rooftop terrace was amazing. Location is perfect: a short walk to both beach and old town. All in one, a very nice experience. Highly recommend it!

    Our studio was on the ground floor together with the other 3 studios. The noise isolation was unfortunately not so great, so we could hear everything that was going on in the other rooms. There was a group of teenagers in the hotel, making noise all night, so we could hardly sleep at night. In addition, the reception is 2 meters away from the apartments, so there was noise coming out from there too. If you are looking for rest and want to make sure you are going to get enough sleep, then this place might not be the best choice.

    The rooms were cleaned every day and towels changed every 2-3 days.

    There is not always someone at the front desk so we had to call for him to come meet us. Luckily my boyfriend had an international calling plan, otherwise this would have been extremely inconvenient. The owner also insisted on keeping some form of our ID. He initially wanted a passport but we didn't feel comfortable with this so we gave him a driver's license instead. The whole place is definitely a little run down, especially the bathroom, but really not too bad.

    The owner was very kind and welcoming. He left a big bottle of water and two oranges in the room for us. He also upgraded us from a the basement room that we booked to a 2nd floor room. The room had a kitchenette that was well stocked with everything you'd need to cool and eat there. There were towels provided. Great location close to the port.
