Diafani is the perfect place for me as bookwriter to find inspiration - and lot of new friends. The owners are so kind and hospitable. My latest five books are inspired at Karpathos and especially Diafani - my Paradise on Earth.

A big and clean room with balcony. The breakfast was good. Also the price was good. The owner and his wife were always ready to help us. This small hotel is ideal for a relaxing and hassle free vacation.

Comfortable two night stay during our island hopping holiday this year. Minas and his wife are very friendly and helpful - Minas gave us a lift to Olymbos, and then came back for us 1.5 hours later. And wouldn't take any payment. Rooms and beds comfortable. Breakfast is simple but ample. If we get to Diafani again we'd love to... More

The family owned Dorana studios is a fine place to stay in quiet and relaxing Diafani. Minas and Flora are great hosts and maintain clean and well appointed rooms. Lots of good advice on where to eat and walk. Stayed for the 4 days between ferries from Rhodes and to Crete.

My wife and I stayed for 7 nights and got many good advices related to the beaches, restaurants and walking i the hills. Value for money. The village Dafani... More

CON: we stayed there for two weeks: bad, extremely noisy beds, even at the simple movement during sleep. Noisy external construction (possible movable items on the terrace), which in combination with the permanent windy conditions of the area make sleep impossible without ear plugs. Minimal cooking and kitchenware equipment (two small boiling pots, plates, glasses and knifes,forks, spoons). No item... More

We recommend Dorana Studio to all who are looking for a nice studio next to the see, with nice view on Diafani and towards the see. Even if next to the harbour, it is very quiet. Minas, the owner, is a very helpful person and can give a lot of local information.

The owner Minas and his wife are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure that you have a good time. Wifi signal is good and the rooms are basic with good quality towels and sheets and good value. Very much enjoyed my week there in November. Diafani itself is easily got to by the big ferry... More
