“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2007

We stayed at the poseidon in mid June 2007 and although the rooms were not luxurious and possibly could have done with a bit of modernisation they were great value for money. They were very reasonably priced considering the air con was free and the location was fantastic. We easily got sunbeds by the pool everyday and it was only a 30 second walk to the sea. The Kamari strip was packed full of excellent restaurants. One end of the strip does have louder aircraft noise but there aren't many flights a day. The poseidon Hotel was at the quiet end of the strip. The best thing about Santorini is the people, everyone is friendly, especially the staff at the poseidon restaurant.
If you go to poseidon don't expect luxury but do expect a great holiday in a superb location.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2006

Having arrived in Crete two days earlier, on my first backpacking holiday to Greece, my partner and I arrived in Santorini late in the evening via ferry. After a quick 10 minute taxi ride, I was not overwhelmed, but not disappointed either, once I'd arrived at the Hotel. After arriving at around 11.30 pm, we were provided with a lovely positioned room, but found that it hadn't been cleaned, which I promptly informed the staff member, who quickly showed us to another room and apologised for the mix up. The room we did get was very clean and on a quiet side of the building (away from the main street), which was great. The tv reception wasn't too good, but we were hardly in the room anyway and didn't understand Greek, so it really wasn't an issue. The breakfast, which was included in our deal, wasn't grand, but sufficient. It consisted of fresh thick bread, jam and honey, greek yoghurt, orange juice, coffee and tea - it, at the very least, got my partner and I through to lunch time. The hotel restaurant also offered a 10% meal discount to residents of the hotel if you dined at their restaurant for lunch or dinner. The hotel's location is great and is probably one of the only cheap hotels located on the main Kamari strip. It also overlooked the beach, which was only about 50 metres away. One reason why I was also pleased with this hotel was the understanding staff. The deal that I booked, through [--], was for two nights accommodation for the 30/09 and 01/10. Due to the ferry being cancelled on the 30/09, we didn't make it to the island until the 01/10. The owner graciously honoured our two nights allowing us to use the booking for the 01/10 and 02/10 instead. They didn't have to do this, but we were very grateful they did and, as a result, we did stay an additional night, which we paid them direct.

Overall, I can recommend this hotel - it's got a fab location, the room was cleaned daily, and the rate through travelrepublic.co.uk was great - £39.00 for two people for two nights with breakfast. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if on a budget.

  • Liked — Clean and great location
  • Disliked — TV didn't work properly and the place tended to echo inside - could be noisy.
