I went there for one night and spent literally 7 hours in it. It's very very convenient if you need to take the ferry the next morning (that's how I chose this hotel). The place is very short distance from the port (7 min walk). The bathroom was a little small but I didn't even need it. All I needed...

We booked this hotel as we had a morning ferry connection. Our room had no air-conditioning and we were told that this was because we had booked a "basic" room through Booking.com. We were given a fan which was totally useless. In the end, the very helpful lady at reception gave us her fan to use for the night. The...

The reviews on here pretty much cover this hotel even if they are old. The room was clean and spacious with a nice patio overlooking the ferry port. Easy walk to the port and 20 minutes to the center. No bus or car required unless you are really lazy and don't walk. Even from the bus station it is only...

Location ideal if you need to catch a ferry in the morning or arriving late at night. Right across from the port. You should be able to walk it with your back packs (10 min walk). You can even see the hotel sign from the port. The cab ride would cost around 6 euros which is not worth it. The...

We had a morning ferry to catch and thought it may be a good idea to stay close to the port. In fact this hotel in no more than 500 meters from the port and our balcony had a view of all the activity in the port. The down side of this property is it is up a hill so...

We stayed at the Hotel Poseidon for one night prior to leaving on the ferry to Santorini the next morning. The hostess at the front desk was terrific, offering us directions and even giving my husband some of her own shampoo when he forgot his. The room was basic but large and comfortable. Having a fridge was very nice as...

The Poseiden Hotel is in a good location for access to the port, airport, bus stop and an easy walk to the city centre. Irene and Nicko were wonderful hosts and made us feel as we were at home instead of in an hotel room. The room was a good size with a balcony overlooking the port and nice views...

We stayed here the night before leaving for Santorini. It is a 5 minute walk from the main city and maybe 2 or 3 minutes from the port. It was a good price but dont expect anything amazing. The room was a decent size with a balcony over looking the port. The staff were very friendly and were able to...

The Poseidon is in a good location if you are arriving by boat, as it is approximately 5 minutes from the ferry port. Very convenient if hiring a car as there is plenty of free parking near by. Our room was a decent size, clean but tired; it really could do with a bit of an update. The full size...
