Porfyris Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Nisiros
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 15, 2013

I have stayed twice at this hotel in Nyssiros. It is a pleasant experience and I was able to have a swim in the pool before breakfast.
The hotel is set behind the town but not too far away for a pleasant walk to the sea which is visible from the hotel. The breakfast was good.
I have good memories of this hotel.

Room Tip: A room looking toward the sea but the other rooms are good too.

The hotel is situated towards the back of Mandraki, our first floor room had a small balcony with a view of the sea and the monastery. Breakfast is a small buffet, but has everything you need and can be eaten outside on the terrace or inside. The hotel is old fashioned / traditional but rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful.

the hotel offers rooms with a small balcony - sea view possible.
a nice seawater pool is provided. the rooms got the charm of the good old times (presumably those where the days when the hotel was good.) nowerdays the furniture and tecnical devices are old. the bed was a catastrophy. - please lift the mattress and order the wooden bars in order to guarantee a minimum of sleep comfort.
breakfast was repetitive and without any inspiration.
the staff is friendly but all got a certain insular charm....
a real pitty is that the let run to seed their garden with the lemon an figue trees.
after all we will possibly choose a other hotel for our next trip to this wonderful island.

Room Tip: check for a room in the upper floor with sea view

the only hotel in town, so it looks like. well has seen for sure better times.

was hard to find from the harbour, hidden in a side road of the little village. the welcome was quit cold, well you better got used to it, people here are just become more friendly after a day, as they realize you are not just a day tourist.

the small rooms are efficient, have what you need, not more. some of them a nice little balcony with seaview. the toilets need a longer fill up time and the beds are just OLD! i was just happy to leave the island after 5 days, cause my back hurts all over! beside of that a very clean pool and boring breakfast buffet. there must have been a nice garden around some day, now it is just going down as the hole place - what a pity!

i would not go there again, if the pool is not a must - there are plenty of swimming possibilities! - there is no reason to chose that place! i spend often in spanish hostels, very simple ones, but this place is less than those!

Room Tip: with balcony, nice to dry the cloths after swim and enjoy the evening sun

We found this hotel to be a good choice with a good location in Mandraki. Nice, but small balconies with great sea view. The rooms are small but nice and clean. We found the atmosphere at the hotel to be pleasant. They have a great terrace for the continental buffet style breakfast. The pool with fresh seawater is nice. Probably the best choice in Mandraki.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have bigger balconies.

Tv did not work as well.
No willing to make a mother easier for her in breastfeeding.

It can be hard to find good accomodation on Nisyros, but the Porfyris Hotel is a decent choice with an exellent downtown location.

The rooms are basic: Bathrooms with shower, fridge in bed room (a little noisy though), nice balconies with Mandraki views.

The owners at the hotel were friendly and the free wifi in the lobby worked well.

Breakfast and pool. (didnt try any of them, though)
