“Carbonaki, excellent choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

We have stayed at Carbonaki for 2 summers. We stayed in 2008 for the first time and liked it so much we stayed in 2010 as well. In it's price range it is an excellent hotel. The rooms have been redone. They are clean simple and the bathrooms are very nice. The hotel staff was very nice to us even allowing us to use their computer to go online. If you want a luxury resort this isn't the spot but if you want a great hotel, that is very clean, close to the bus station and in town this place is amazing. Not a single bad thing to say. It is perfect for those people who want to stay in town and take day trips to the beaches. It is much safer to do this than rent a scooter or ATV as the roads are narrow and very tricky. The only thing I didn't like is that from our first stay they had changed the swimming pool into a hot tub. Who needs a hot tub in Greece in 40 degree weather? Stayed at Golden Star in 2007 and much prefer Carbonaki and its even cheaper in high season.

Room Tip: We had room 120 for 3 people. Right on the first floor, easy for luggage

This is the second time we stayed at the Carbonaki and again was not disappointed,.
From the owners to the support staff nothing was an issue and always attenditive to any of our needs. Owners have recruited very well
Anyone that wants to expierence the magic of Mykonos, this the Hotel to stay..
Very centrally located to all Bus/Bars/Cafes and nite clubs.
Even though its in town.. extremely quiet area, great for families/Couples and singles.

Rooms and cleaniless --- outstanding.

Room Tip: Get Room 131.. large balcony for litte get togethers

Very comfortable and clean accommodations. Staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. Our ferry was canceled and they were really helpful assisting us with who to go to to find alternate transportation. We were really grateful for their help.

Only complaint is I think it's a little overpriced for what it is, but I guess that's what's you're going to get most places on Mykonos. But, when you read some of the things about other hotels, I will say it was well worth it for this trip.

This pleasant traditional style hotel sits nestled amongst the narrow alleyways of the Mykonos waterfront.
If arriving by Ferry it is a trek along the waterfront and up through the alleyways to the hotel in the heat. I felt they should have met us off the ferry and at least helped with the bags. Make sure you have clear directions before arriving as it can be very confusing finding the hotel from the Ferry terminal.

We felt staff weren’t overly friendly and kept to themselves but were helpful and pleasant overall without going out of their way. On leaving they did carry our bags a distance up the alleyway for us to met our cab for the airport and this was a blessing as, due to the narrow streets, no vehicles can get near to this and many of the hotels in the waterfront area.
Our room was clean and simply decorated but quite small as was the bathroom. Other rooms may have been bigger but after 3 nights we were pleased to move on. For some reason( the hotel wasn’t full) we were put in one of the rooms overlooking the alleyway below and this was a nightmare with constant noise and talking rising up from passersby and from the convenience store next door which remained open all night.

This is as Mykonos is party town and there are people around all day and all night, often rowdy as they head to and from the nightclubs to the hotels beyond Carbonaki. The locals too have a habit of conversing loudly and no matter if it is 4pm or 4am. It drove us mad by the 3rd night.

Breakfast is offered at Carbonaki for Eur 10 and is ok but ask for hot eggs. Plenty of food options surround the hotel for meals. We would recommend this hotel but ask for a room away from the front of the hotel and the alleyway.

There is a spa pool (cold) but no swimming pool. This is a disappointment as the howling summer wind ( Mistral ?) makes the waterfront and only town beach very unpleasant to sit around and it would be good to retreat to a sheltered pool.

Mykonos often fills up with a surge of cruise ship tourists who flood the narrow shopping alleys.. best avoided by taking off to one of the sheltered beaches on the island easily reached by bus. Mykonos never sleeps, this can be a good or a bad thing depending on your needs.

Room Tip: Check out liklihood of rooom being noisy. Ask to move after 1st night and don't just put up with...

The hotel is in a perfect location...walking distance to everything in town and a close bus ride to the beach. Panos, the manager, was wonderful! He was so helpful with honest recommendations for everything! We can't wait to come back and stay here!
