I found this hotel to be a welcome surprise. As it is right in the middle of Fira, I was expecting some noise. I was given a room at the back to the hotel (away from road). It was lovely & quiet & could not hear the road noise. There were various terraces that I could sit out on ,...

This is a delightful hotel in the centre to Thira close to the bus station and the square & on the more level ground. The staff are superb, helpful, friendly and knowledgable, especially Margarite, Irene & Nirvana. Breakfast served from 8 - 10.30 & a garden restaurant right next door.

Guess first you have to decide what you want out of a hotel in Santorini. There's so much natural beauty on the island that getting a basic budget room sort of makes sense. However there are also some beautiful hotels around. I spent 4 nights in an upscale resort and 5 nights at Pelican. First - to get the really...

Super friendly service and they do speak English! The room was small but very clean, the bathroom very small and had some mold issues around the window. We had A/C while in the room, but they leave the windows open/cracked while you are out. The hotel doesn't have a view of the ocean but the view is only two blocks...

What a great surprise this place was! Booked for a couple of nights in Fira. Close to the bus stop and a short walk from all the restaurants, bars and the stunning views and very reasonably priced. The room was was immaculately clean, pretty and a good size. I could even see a glimpse of the water from my window!...

We were very pleased with the Pelican Hotel in Fira. It was conveniently located near the main square, and only 3 blocks from the bus station. It was clean and quiet, despite its central location and the room rate was reasonable. We reserved our room over the internet and everything worked as advertised. Breakfast was fresh and the restaurant next...

What a great little place! This is in an amazing area, steps from to center of town and the caldera, for a great price. The place was immaculate and the staff was so helpful. This is by far the best hospitality I have ever received at a hotel. The staff knew us by name, even when we walked in the...

The location of the hotel is perfect! Only 5 minutes away from the bus station and within minutes from restaurants and supermarkets. Wifi is decent. The staffs were very friendly!!! The breakfast was very delicious too :) occasionally at night it was noisy for a bit but I was too tired and slept through it.
