Excellent service, fantastic location, and historically-interesting hotel. We booked a canava suite, which is a bit too cave-like (i.e., dark with no windows). Would book another room. Hard-working staff who were at the ready to help with getting cabs and any other services. They really try to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. Pygros is a really great town that is filled with stores and tavernas at every turn, and not nearly as crowded as other areas. Recommend the Zannos.

I am saddened to report that my experience at Zannos Melathron Hotel in Santorini was nothing short of a disaster. From a complete lack of cleanliness to false advertising on their website and unprofessional staff, this hotel fell far short of the expectations we had when booking our stay. In fact, the experience was so appalling that we had no choice but to leave within 20 minutes of arriving and find alternative accommodation. Upon arrival at Zannos Melathron, we were greeted with an unwelcoming atmosphere and unprofessional staff. There was no sense of hospitality or warmth, and to our disbelief, they failed to even check us in properly. This immediately set the tone for the level of service we could expect during our stay. The lack of cleanliness at the hotel was astonishing. Our room was in a deplorable state, with stained linens, dusty surfaces, and an unpleasant odor that permeated the space. It was clear that the hotel's commitment to maintaining a hygienic and comfortable environment for guests was severely lacking. In addition to the unsanitary conditions, the information provided on the hotel's website was inaccurate and misleading. The amenities and services advertised were nowhere to be found, leaving us feeling deceived and frustrated. This blatant misrepresentation further fueled our dissatisfaction with Zannos Melathron. Attempts to communicate our concerns to the hotel staff were met with a lack of responsiveness and dismissive attitude. It seemed as if our grievances were of no consequence to them, which only served to heighten our disappointment and frustration with the entire experience. Ultimately, the substandard conditions and unprofessional treatment we encountered at Zannos Melathron Hotel left us with no choice but to leave within the first 20 minutes of our arrival. We were fortunate to find alternative accommodation, which thankfully salvaged our Santorini vacation. I strongly advise against staying at Zannos Melathron Hotel, as the poor service, lack of cleanliness, and false advertising on their website make for a truly regrettable experience. Save yourself the disappointment and book elsewhere.

We have spent a week in this beautiful hotel. I can only say good things about it. The staff was so helpful and courteous they couldn’t do enough for you. The owner was fantastic and kindly upgraded us to a beautiful luxurious suite. I would very strongly recommend this hotel.

The most recent reviews are positive for this hotel but older ones did concern me as the comments and photos were not positive at all. For that reason, I contacted the hotel and explained my concerns as I had booked before I had read them. Christopher was very honest and explained that he had only taken over the management of the hotel during the past year and his team were busy making improvements. He offered to take photos of our rooms next time they were vacated and if I was not happy then I could cancel with full refund. What great customer service!👍. The photos looked fine and since then we have messaged the team to ask questions about the surrounding area and the airport transfer etc and they have been so helpful. We go this week and will feedback on the hotel but I am sure I will be able to give good comments like the most recent guests have done! 😊

Since the first minute, we felt the hospitality of the whole staff. A tour around the Mansion was offered at check in. I was impressed about all the history behind this building. It is admire that still belongs to the Zannos family. The suites are big and spacious all of the different. Ours has two rooms, kitchen and spacious bathroom. The breakfast can be order in the room filling the menu request online the night before. The swimming pool has one of the best views of Santorini and is possible to see the sunset from any point. Pyrgos is quiet and in my opinion a gem of Santorini far from the mainstream Fira or Oia. Totally recommend this location if your plans are to move around the island.

Our visit was fantastic, but the service was nothing but amazing! We really enjoed the breakfast, as we ordered the day before what and when to eat. It is also possible to order drinks straight to the pool. But it is the staff that make the whole experience extra enjoyable. Our last three-four days we got upgraded to another suite with a private pool. Many gestures like this made our stay as a couple very special. Thank you Christopher and the rest of the staff as well!

Zannos is an old hotel on the (I think)the highest part of Santorini. We loved our stay. Kristofer, the Manager was so helpful, kind and ready to be of service. Staff was also very nice, kind and ready to fullfill every wish we had mainly concerning the breakfast. There are things needed to be improved, but I’m sure they will when the real summer season kicks off. Hotel has a wonderfull view, nice outdoor pool and several jaccuzzi also. Rooms are perfectly refreshing after day walks in the streets of Caldera or Oia and we could hardly wait to come back to our rooms. Our stay was lovely, we had a wonderfull time in and outside hotel and If you are not so picky, i fully recommend this hotel. Not excpensive and very good. At least we need friendly faces, clean rooms, good breakfast, and in this hotel all these three elements are in place. A note: those who have problems walking or climbing, there is no buss or car that drives you to the hotel. But you can allways stop and rest on the caffees on the way up. Yess, there is also a small souvlaki shop near hotel so you can stop there too, eat a souvlaki, have a mythos beer, rest and continue climbing for two more minutes. In totall we would be in our hotel for 4/5 minutes. This note is only for those who have difficulties walking or climbing. Enjoy Santorini and Zannos if you chose to stay here.

First step was a donkey came to collect our suitcases which was horrible and felt mean. At the end of our stay we ran downstairs with our bags ourseleves so we didn't have to use the donkey again. The hotel is weird, on the website it describes the hotel evening resturant and in room dining, but when i asked about this on check-in i was very rudely told that there is no resturant on site. Weird. The room was nice but big buuilding works next door meant that at 8am we were greeted with the noise of donkey hooves on our ceiling lugging building supplies up and down the stairs. I found the staff pretty rude, aside from the smiley cleaner. Check in staff were surly and when i saw her again she was yelling very publicly to the man cleaning the pool and i felt like they thought they were too good for us. Not worth it. Stay somewhere else.

It is a beautiful mansion build in the 1870's by French architecture. It is very impressive until the moment you start to peer into the details. I don’t know how hotels in Greece get 5 star status, but I’m absolutely sure that any shack can call itself a luxury hotel here in Santorini, the island with such high demand among tourists all over the world. Unfortunately, it is a very common situation here in Santorini where the hotels do not correspond to the status and value in which they position themselves on the sales channel or in social networks. I consider it simply necessary to write this review, so that everyone who is going to spend their holidays in Santorini could choose a hotel relying on actual reviews and do not believe to those photos that have been taken 15 years ago. In addition, to the beauty of the mansion itself, the authenticity of the village with its rich historical past, stunning views and good nearby restaurants, this hotel has nothing to pay 200- 500 euros per night. It could be 3 star hotel with the average price 120Euros depending on the season and the room type of course. I feel very sad that beautiful property in possession of such terrible owners who have no idea how to run the business. This hotel could be really piece of hospitality art.
