Studios Panos is a boutique hotel on the island of Naxos that easily gets 5 stars from us. Renovated in 2018-19, it is modern and comfortable. It’s located one block from the beach, a short walking distance from restaurants, shops, grocery stores, and the main square of Naxos Town. Even though it’s close to every amenity you could want it sits off the main street, making your stay a quiet one.

The hospitality is top notch at Studios Panos. Milka manages the family owned and operated hotel, and she goes above and beyond for her guests. During a recent stay at Studios Panos, my ferry was canceled due to weather and Milka graciously worked out for me to come the next day. Her communication was excellent through the entire ordeal. You’ll feel like part of the family when you stay at Studios Panos.
Studios Panos has four types of accommodations with balconies: standard double studios, deluxe double studios, junior suite, and deluxe apartment. Each room has a kitchenette equipped with a refrigerator, stove top, dishes and utensils, coffee maker, and more. Rooms also have a safe box, hair dryer, air conditioning, and a television.
There is one room with a sea view. And the rooftop has a sea view. You can catch the sunset from the rooftop but is has obstructed views. With the beach only one block away, I recommend heading to the beach for the sunset.
A great way to see Naxos is by renting a car or motorbike. Milka’s cousin owns a rental company and she’ll reserve the transportation for you. The car or motorbike will be brought to Studios Panos for you and you can return it there as well. A car rental runs around 30-40 euro per day, and both manual and automatic transmissions are available.
While Studios Panos doesn’t have a pool, it’s only one block from Agios Georgios beach. This is a great location to swim and relax on a beach chair with a view of Paros island. The sea is shallow for quite far out in this location, which makes the water warmer.
Port and Airport Pick-Up
Studios Panos provides a complimentary port and airport transfer upon request. The hotel is located within 10 minutes of both. If you prefer to walk, it’s doable from the port and is an approximate 20-minute walk.
I highly recommend Studios Panos as one of the best places to stay in Naxos. Just make sure you book early, as this hotel fills up fast. With Milka’s amazing hospitality and the luxurious boutique atmosphere, you’ll want to come back year after year!
