Fabulous place. Great studios and spotlessly clean. Fantastic views of sea and mountains and short walk to beach and tavernas.. Minas and Flora are fantastic hosts and go out of they way to make you very welcome.. Try smiling and saying hello and you will get a million back. Highly recommend it..

In a very convenient location close to the harbour of Diafani with its taverns and the village beach stands the building of the 'Studios Dorana', which is run by helpful Minas and his charming wife Flora. The rooms are of a pleasant size and come with a kitchenette and a terrace or balcony, facing north and overlooking the small village... More

We were warmly greeted by Minas and Flora. Diafani is a pretty town on the beach on the island of Warpaths and DoranaHotel Apartments are perfectly located. The room was cheerful and clean with a very comfortable bed, bath and a balcony with a nice and wide open view. It was good to get back there after a long hike.... More

Diafani is the perfect place for me as bookwriter to find inspiration - and lot of new friends. The owners are so kind and hospitable. My latest five books are inspired at Karpathos and especially Diafani - my Paradise on Earth.

Comfortable two night stay during our island hopping holiday this year. Minas and his wife are very friendly and helpful - Minas gave us a lift to Olymbos, and then came back for us 1.5 hours later. And wouldn't take any payment. Rooms and beds comfortable. Breakfast is simple but ample. If we get to Diafani again we'd love to... More

The family owned Dorana studios is a fine place to stay in quiet and relaxing Diafani. Minas and Flora are great hosts and maintain clean and well appointed rooms. Lots of good advice on where to eat and walk. Stayed for the 4 days between ferries from Rhodes and to Crete.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dorana Studios are located at Diafani which is at the Northern part of Karpathos. According to most people this area is the most ideal place for relaxation and walks. Diafani is famous for its abudance of fish, diving and spearfishing opportunities. Dorana Studios consist of studios, some double bed, triple bed and a studio with four beds. There is even an apartment with six beds. We have two new family apartments also. All studios have their own balcony and a beautiful sea view, which by the way is only 50 meters away from the studios. The port of Diafani is 200 meters away and close by, you will find restaurants, ouzo bars with traditional appetizers and fish taverns which have fresh fish everyday. If you want to see the amazing sunrise and enjoy Macarunes you can go to Olympos, the most traditional village of Karpathos. It is seven kilometers from Diafani; transportation is on a daily basis. You can also go on daily excursions to different beaches and to the nearby island of Saria by boat. Convinced the hotel organizes programs for individual consumers but also to groups up to 15 people in the trails since the place is ideal for walking to many and clean trails that are all signposted. Even do and guided tours paths but also the island of sarias by ferry from DIAFANI. ... more   less
