“Could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Quiet hotel on quiet street. Maybe too quiet for some. A few ignorable tourist shops/bars nearby except the convenience store directly opposite. Bus stop for Fira just outside, bike/quad hire just next door. Beach about 500 metres behind hotel.

They are a friendly-ish owner couple however the wife became a little defensive when we notified them the shower water was cold. Her continual advice was to “keep it running” which we did for about an hour each morning, 4 days in a row to no avail. The swimming pool is also unheated. Breakfast is very continental for both visitors and flies. Cereal, cheese and small rolls. Not much more. Huge card attached to room key to activate electricity.

It was clean however, no bedbugs and the “room” was more like a little apartment.

My friend & I just got back from staying 4 nights @ this place. We Loved it! Of course it's going to be an older building,, we're in Santorini for God's sake. But the grounds & rooms were beautiful. The green doors & shutters that opened up to the fresh ocean breeze were my favorite. Each room had their own private balcony/patio , which was great. We even had airconditioning ! That worked very well, I might add. The owners were Amazing! Any time we came in they greeted us & made sure everything was ok. They offered many helpful suggestions & advice on what to do all over the island. Even when we felt like we were bugging them with our hundreds of questions, they had No problem answering us & making us feel valued. The hotel is only a few minute walk to the beach & Many wonderful restaurants. There are even several bars/restaurants right on the road that the Drossos is located on. And if you want to venture around the island, you can easily do so via city bus, which you can catch just across the street for anly 2.20 Euro. I would absolutely recommend this place! Happy Travels!

The lady at reception is incredibly nice and helped us out so much with information and tips and really cared that we had a great stay. 2min walk from beach and nice clean rooms with good pool. Buffet breakfast was a but strange but there are plenty of bakeries and cafés nearby. Would highly recommend and hope to come back one day!

Rooms were average but clean. Loved our balcony... Aircondition was poor which was awful at nights, but open window and balcony door were our air condition during our stay. Pool area was very nice and water was cool enough to make you feel refreshed in the summer heat. Hotel owners was absolutely something else! They told us about trios and what we could do during our stay. They booked everything if we wanted. Very hospitality and we did feel our stay very welcome! Thank you!

We had a pleasant reservation for 6 nights and everything was nice.
The breakfast, the pool, the room and of course the place that the hotel is built in.

Drossos is one of the best hotels in Perissa, Santorini.

Thank you for the hospitality.
