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.

We recommend Dorana Studios to everyone who will stay in a very personal familydriven hotel. Minas and his wife do everything for you and the service level is superb. Very clean. 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

Once again had a lovely stay. Besutiful clean rooms and Minas and his wife make you very welcome. The new apartments are finished and Minas showed me NO 10, lovely apartment separate bedroom, large bathroom and balcony. Lovely view of the sea. Right on the front and short walk to everything. Cannot wait to revisit.

Spent 4 nights at the Dorana in September. Pros: Central location, just off the main strip (steps off). Large balcony, facing the town and sea. Cost - it was very cheap (E25) so that I feel a bit bad compaining about anything else. However, I would prefer if they raised the price a bit and provided better service/cleaning etc. Short... More

You need at least one hour and fifteen min to go there from the port (if you are greek, otherwise it must be even longer) and the owner says its maximum 50 min. (From the airport is more than two hours.) The road is dangerous with many turns and scarps. 2 kilometers dangerous dirt road with no guard rail. The... More
