“Beautiful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

So nice to get a hotel with a pool in Mykonos town. Amazing views from the hotel. Yes, it's up a hill but the walk wasn't too bad and the taxis were cheap enough anyway.
Mykonos is expensive, but cocktails in the sunset are a must. But also recommended is a bottle of wine watching the sunset view from the hotel.
Staff at the hotel were amazing. Picked us up from the airport and dropped us back. Couldn't have been more friendly and willing to help.

This is a great little hotel especially at this price range. I don't understand why the star class rating is so low. Our room was spacious and had everything ( fridge, sitting area) our bathroom was especially nice. The outdoor areas of the hotel are probably better than the pictures, there are lots of chill out sofas and outdoor beds and you can sit out for the beautful sunsets The pool is lovely and there's a real cool ambiance, chill out music in the background, nice cocktail menu. The owner was just the right kind of helpful, he picked us up and left us off at the airport, gave us a quick tour around the city and lots of good advise and then left us to ourselves unless we needed something. The location is great, it's a short (maybe 10mins) walk down the hill into the town.
If you want to see the island you'll need to rent mopeds, quads or a car. There's a place that rents quads beside the hotel on the way into town for €18 for the day that worked fine for us.

Myself and couple of friends decided to try this place out via a random internet booking. And it turned out to be the best decision we ever made during our entire stay in Greece! Right from the offer a pick-up from the port or airport to the supremely clean and spacious rooms, all the way to its gorgeous hill-top view of the Mediterranean Sea; Hotel Damianos is truly the entire package.

The hotel was run as a family business and they were arguably, the friendliest people we had met on our trip! Apart from the excellent selection of in-house gourmet breakfast to a personalized tending to every one of our needs, I would definitely recommend this to anybody who seeks comfort, luxury and warm hosptiality.

Apart from rating this trip, my deepest most-heartfelt gratitude to the owner and his mother specially after what happened minutes prior to our departure from Mykonos. They drove all the way from the resort to the port twice, just because I had forgotten my jacket and camera at the hotel, with merely minutes to go for our ferry to leave the port! They drove back to the hotel, got back and gave me the hotel with literally seconds to go before departure! I can't thank them enough for that! :)

I and couple of my friends had an absolutely amazing time here. We were offered a pick-up from the ferry port by a lovely gentleman who gave us all the information about food, travel and spots to visit at Mykonos. The location, views from the hotel and excellent pool area in addition to lovely triple sharing room (clean, nice bathroom and three single comfortable beds) made its worth. Morning breakfast was tasty and very filling. All the people managing this lovely family run hotel were very friendly and hospitable. It's run by the owners who stay in the same hotel hence offer great personalized touch to the service to their guests. Absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting Mykonos, Greece !!

I absolutely loved my stay here. We were welcomed by a very friendly young woman who spoke English well and told us about all the things to do and see on the island. We were very impressed with our room (air conditioning, clean, a nice bathroom) and there's an excellent pool area as well A modest but tasty breakfast buffet was included. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night!

The staff will pick you up and drop you off at the port, so be sure to give them notice as to when you're arriving (you can walk from the old port if you don't have too much luggage, but I definitely don't recommend walking from the new port).

The only catch is that it's a bit of an uphill hike to get there at the end of the day, since it's just north of all the action. The plus side is that it was a quiet and restful night, away from the loud partying!

We only stayed here for 2 nights – 1 night at the either side of our trip to Paros. Our stay was excellent – especially the 1st night. Our room was clean and spacious with lots of room for luggage etc. the bathroom looked new and you could see the sea from outside the room. The room also had a fridge which was appreciated. The pool area was nice and had brilliant views over the town and sea. Comfortable sunloungers and towels also provided. After our flight, we were grateful for the on-site restaurant. The food was tasty and beer cold! You could also order drinks to arrive at your sunlounger which was nice. We also liked the resident tabby cat!

This is a family run hotel and all the better for it. The staff were warm and friendly as well as efficient. Helping us with our cases and showing us how to get to town etc.

The hotel also offer free transfers to and from the port/airport which was greatly appreciated as we had 4 transfers with us staying 2 different nights.

Breakfast was fine and included in the rate.

The only downside was on the second night (the last night of our holiday) we were put in a room which was obviously older and to be honest not very pleasant. It felt a bit dingy with funny cleaning smells and a kitchenette that was too big for the room and not needed. We both agreed if we’d have been staying for more than one night we would have asked to move rooms. It was located just behind the breakfast terrace whereas the first room was higher up. Saying that, the hotel is great value for money on Mykonos and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone but just be aware of the difference in rooms (although there may be a difference in price which would make sense).

Room Tip: Pay extra for a newer type room on the higher level.

We’ve spent 4 nights there. We had budget room booked and at first wanted to change it as there was some chlorine or other detergent nasty smell inside and room was next to the restaurant terrace and we were afraid of the noise. But eventually smell was gone after 30 min with opened window and it was quiet as they close restaurant approx. midnight.

Room itself was very small, very basic, with two beds put together (although quite comfy, which is not the usual case in this type of bed setting), small bathroom, fridge, small tv and that’s about it. It was what we expected when booking, so we were prepared(therefore I mark it as 'average' otherwise I would mark it as a 'poor'). Pity that there is no safe dep box. Room was cleaned every day.

As for other facilities – pool area was really cool, with sunbeds and great view over Hora town. Same views from restaurant – you could enjoy view over Hora, see the sunset eating really simple good food in the restaurant or having a drink. Nice.

As for staff – Damianos, the owner was very helpful – picked us up from the airport, gave us tons of tips what to do, where to go, arranged bike rental and arranged port drop off when we were leaving. He could help in everything, i.e. booking trips to Delos or any other excursions. Really great. Rest of the staff was also super kind and helpful, it is something that makes you feel really good as a guest.

So, having in mind the above (inexpensive accommodation segment), I can give it 4 TA stars and I can easily state that if you’re looking for an inexpensive accommodation quite close to Hora (Mykonos town, but be prepared for back route if you’re on foot, as you have to climb some stairs) and you are able to accept staying in a small, very basic room, Damianos hotel is worth considering.

As for Mykonos island it is nice, but not may fav. Definitely one should see Fokos beach on the north shore, which is secluded beach in the lovely bay with only one tavern (but what a great food they have there!).

Room Tip: Budget rooms are very basic and small and with no view. Those rooms on the firts floor in the main b...
