Nikos Takis Fashion Hotel
45 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Nikos Takis is easily one of the most charming small hotels we've stayed. The location is excellent and easily accessed despite being in the old town. The staff is superb and the individual service given by all is incredible. Many thanks especially to Areti who consistently went out of her way to ensure our stay was memorable. We could not have been more pleased.
The breakfasts were fabulous. Everything was homemade there at the hotel and something we looked forward to each morning.
We stayed in the Knight's room, a beautiful space. One more thing-this hotel is immaculately clean.
I would recommend this hotel without hesitation to anyone! We loved it! Again, thank you Areti and your co-workers for making our stay in Rhodes so magnificent!"

Awesome holiday, Iâve been home for 1...
"Awesome holiday, Iâve been home for 1 day and want to go back already. The hotel is perfect. The staff are some of the most friendly people you will meet and the pool and bar area is really good.
Only 15 min walk to the main strip and probably only a 2 min drive in a taxi (which is cheap). I thoroughly recommend hotel Nikos to anyone looking at holidays in Malia because I am looking at going there again next summer.
My advice... go there."

Beautiful, unique boutique hotel.
"We stayed at the Nikos Takis Hotel for 4 nights in June. It is one of few hotels located within the Old Town. Our room was quite small but still very beautiful. It was wonderful to be welcomed with a bottle of wine and a fruit basket. There is a lovely courtyard where a delicious breakfast is served. Apparently they served Ouzo and appetizers each evening around 8 but unfortunately we were always out and about so were not able to enjoy this. This is a very romantic, lovely boutique hotel. We loved it. Thank you Metina and Chris for your hospitality!

We loved this hotel!
"We stayed in this lovely boutique hotel for 4 nights earlier this month and we could not have been more pleased with our decision. All of the rooms are decorated in a beautiful Turkish/oriental style with genuine antiques and/or very lavish furniture and accents. We stayed in the Tzami suite and the king size bed was incredibly comfortable! The hotel's location was perfect for us - in the old city just a 1/2 block from the Grand Master's Palace and the Street of the Knights. It was also only a 1/2 block to the busy Socratous Street but somehow it still felt off the beaten track! Chris made us great crepes and other delicacies each morning & she also provided mezedes and ouzo every night at around 8:00 for all guests in the hotel's outdoor courtyard. If you are considering staying in the Old City, we highly recommend Nikos Takis!"

A Very Romantic Place!
"The wife & I had an opportunity for a getaway vacation in Greece w/o kids, so we wanted to stay in a hotel that was memorable and romantic to take advantage of the (somewhat rare!) opportunity. We found out about the Nikos-Takis from some web searching, and couldn't believe how good it sounded from the description. But we were slightly worried since it was new (they opened in Summer 2005) and had no existing reviews. We took the chance anyway, and it was the best decision we made for the whole vacation. EVERYTHING ABOUT THE HOTEL WAS PERFECT!!
If you want a unique, luxurious, romantic place we can't imagine any better. The hotel might not be for everyone's taste: it is very small (only 4 rooms, building 2 more for summer), and though in a perfect location for sightseeing (in the center of old town and literally next door to the main sights), it does not have the beach view that some people crave from a Greek Island vacation. The Nikos-Takis is also very different from the standard large chain hotel in all respects, but this was something we loved. For starters, the rooms were amazing -- completely designed around mediterranean/byzantine/oriental themes -- it was likely being in someone's lovingly decorated house rather than a hotel. We stayed in the Tzami room which was very large, with a separate sitting room, huge bathroom and kingsize 4-poster bed (one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in at a hotel). The bathroom had a 2-person Jacuzzi tub that we got a lot of use out of (it was a *romantic* getaway after all!).
Most importantly, the service and amenities were deluxe and personalized, from the bottle of wine and fruit when we arrived, to the wonderful breakfast served in our bedroom, to all of our needs being met immediately. For example, after coming back one afternoon we asked the receptionist/hostess Matina where we could find fresh olives to bring back to the room for a cocktail hour snack. She said give me 5 minutes, and then brought up a whole tray of them, along with feta cheese and fresh bread. All of the food served by the hotel was wonderfully fresh & delicious. Matina gave great recommendations for dinner places, and was generally as helpful as a guest could imagine.
So, in short, if you want to stay in a deluxe, romantic hotel (i.e., much better for couples than families) that will give you a completely memorable experience, try Nikos-Takis. You won't regret it!"

I had the best holiday at the hotel Niko...
"I had the best holiday at the hotel Nikos I have ever had. There was a group of four of us that went.
The hotel staff were lovely, very friendly. They did all sorts of English food in the pool bar which was lovely.
Rooms were basic, but clean and couldnât complaint.
Had quite a few good nights out in Malia which was only a 5min taxi ride away, or 15min walk. But also had a few good nights just sat in the pool bar which we kept open until god knows what time in the morning. Had a great holiday and i will be going back again next year no doubt about it.

It is everything you are looking for if...
"It is everything you are looking for if your going for the partying scene.
You could come and go as you please at what ever time! The bar was open 24hrs and the pool was good! It takes about 5mins by taxi max to get to the Main Strip and all taxis are really cheap! All the staff were really friendly and the rooms are basic but clean!
There were 6 of us that went all girls 19-21 and we had the best holiday ever and will be going again this year!"
