Myself , husband and teenage son stayed here for 5 nights. The room was large for 3 of us and very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Air conditioning was included in the price and there was consistently good WiFi reception. The rooms were cleaned and towels replaced daily. The staff were very friendly and helpful, recommending local restaurants and booking them... More

This hotel was rated 3 stars -- I am not sure why. It is older and does not have an elevator, so if you are on the upper floor, it may be uncomfortable walking up and down. The room amenities are basic, but clean. the front desk staff are extremely helpful and good at what they do. The hotel is... More

Located near the main drag of Fira, the Pelican is a decent hotel. Nothing special or particularly grand. Rooms are comfortable ,although the beds are in need of updating, and clean. Located directly next door to a garden restaurant, some rooms can be a bit noisy in the evening. It's location is great for shopping and dining options.The staff is... More

My friend and I went to the Pelican for dinner, where we found out about this wine tasting. We loved dinner, so we were excited to come back for the wine tasting. It was lovely to get to see the 400 year old wine cellar hidden below the restaurant. The host taught us about the history and make of each... More

A large group of us went for dinner here, and it was amazing! Fresh fish is brought to your table and the waiting staff are very helpful and attentive. The food was superb - all 14 of us were delighted! I had the stuffed squid and my husband had octopus. After dinner we met Maria - the wine expert! She... More

Just being on the island of Santorini was so special, but having dinner in the Pelican's Garden was extraordinary!!! Trees and vines made the roof of this outdoor garden restaurant. Our group enjoyed appetizers, salads and wine and relaxed and felt like we were in another world. Highly recommend!!!!

I stayed with my boyfriend at Pelican hotel for a weekend. The location is perfect at the centre of Fira. The room was nice and clean. Mostly I enjoyed the lounge area which is very bright and welcoming. The decoration is minimalistic, white matching with the traditional furniture and the stuff was always there to help you, serve you some... More

The Pelican is a comfortable & welcoming hotel in the heart of Fira. Santorini is a wonderful destination but tricky to get right as the geography means you either stay at the beach, or at Oia or Fira. Oia is crazily beautiful but also crazy making as the sunset hordes gather, also hotels here can be seriously expensive & the... More

I was booked for 4 nights but because of bad weather in Athens and Santorini our flight was cancelled. So I ended up staying only for 3. I had asked for a room on the main floor and they held it for me. I arrived very early and was able to check right in. That's what I call customer service!... More

We traveled around Greece and stayed in quiet a few hotels- this one by far was the worst: Bathroom was dirty Staff at the front desk were just horrid They arranged a taxi to the airport ( though the travel agency which is owned by the same company) which was 3x the price it should have been. Outrageous! Decor was... More
