“ This hotel is absolutely beautiful with lovely white washed walls, beautiful natural woods, linen drapery and wonderful new windows , doors and shutters. The rooms are spacious , include sitting area and outside balcony. Bathroom is a generous size and all was very clean. Breakfast is an incredible spread includinghomemade dishes, and all one could want to eat . The location is also great and an easy walk to historic center the waterfront and port. The host was there to pick us up and helped make other touring arrangements and even covered the taxi to the airport . Exceptional place !!
“ What an amazing find. We were collected and returned to catch our ferry. Very near the port. The room was very good with the best bathroom with a rain shower. Towels provided when we spent day on Plaka beach which was easily got to by bus from port. What sets this hotel to amazing is the fantastic breakfast with freshly home made cakes and pastries as well as hot and cold meats. The best we have ever had in Greece.

“ Stayed at the Adriani Hotel for 13 nights June/July 2018. Michalis, Irene and all the staff were so friendly and welcoming. The hotel was spotless and breakfast was of a very high standard. Great location for exploring the town and island. Loved our stay here and had a wonderful holiday on Naxos. Would highly recommend this hotel.
