Naxos hotel question

Jump to last reply

I am seeking advice concerning finding a hotel on Naxos. We will be there for 5 nights in June.

We would like something in or within walking distance of the old town. A lot of quaint Greek charm would be a big plus. Being at a hotel on the beach is not the primary purpose of the visit, but we would like to visit beaches, and if a hotel happened to be on the beach and was still close to the old town, that could be a plus but is not essential. A nice pool would also be a plus but is not absolutely essential. I think this puts me in the Hora/Agio Georgious Beach area.

I don’t think I want to pay more than $200 per night, but I don’t want to pay that much for something that is not much better than something that is much cheaper. The reason that I say this is because I have searched Naxos hotels on the internet and note that some options are beginning to disappear, and prices on lesser hotels seem to be rising. Some reviewers claim that after arriving and looking around, they realized that they could have done better for much less. I don’t want to pay an inflated price for a mediocre hotel when I could have stayed at another equivalent mediocre hotel (or a hotel with different features, such as no beach or pool) for much less.

To summarize, desirable features, in order of importance include: 1) in a safe area; 2) quaint Greek charm with a view of some type (not necessarily a sea view); 3) in walking distance of the old town; 4) with a pool; 5) on a beach; 6) no rental car necessary but the possibility of parking one if one is obtained.
Thank you and I greatly appreciate any suggestions.
