Daedalus Hotel
Ranked #65 of 81 Hotels in Fira
Reviewed September 25, 2013

just recently spent 3 nights here with a group of family and friends. The rooms are clean and a reasonable size - some a bit tired. But then who is in their room for any great length of time. Great location - just a 3 minute walk to the main Fira Centre, and also a supermarket straight across the road.
Staff were very friendly and only too happy to help when required. The pool area is great. The breakfast room quite hot - perhaps a couple of fans going would help. The breakfast itself was plentiful with a reasonable choice of food.

Room Tip: Go upstairs, on the outside, with a view

I stayed at Daedalus for 3 nights during a trip do Greece, that included Santorini in August 2013. Let me start by saying that the hotel is not that bad. But some aspects were a little bit of a let down.

The plus:
- Good pool (with direct access from the rooms, if you stay on the first floor),
- clean rooms
- ok buffet breakfast (could be better if some more fruit variety).
- Free wi-fi (although very slow in the evenings)
- Location, not far from all the action in Fira.

But there are some quirks:
- tiny bathrooms (the most ridiculous tub I've ever seen, why didn't they use a shower base instead?! The size would be the same)
- The protection in the "tub" (let's call it that way for now) was so bad, the bathroom would get completely soaked.
- Tiny TV (albeit not a problem for me, I was not there to watch TV).
- the last night, an awful sewer smell was present in the room, coming from the bathroom. I don't know if this happens a lot, but it was quite unpleasant.

I cannot say if the price is right because I payed for a package with several hotels in Greece, but what I'm sure of is that this is not a 4 star hotel (well, maybe it is in Fira, I could not compare with other hotels there).

The magic question: would I return? Well..sorry, probably not...

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor have direct access to the pool

We visit Daedalus hotel and truly was really good! The staff at the reception was very friendly
and helpful. We felt like home! The gardens and the pool area were wonderful!
Although the room was a little bit small it was really clean and with a wonderful views to the pool!
It is also located 3 minutes walking distance from the main square and everything is really close by! It is a really good choice to stay in.... We loved it!

We stayed at Daedalus hotel earlier this summer and although the pool facilities are very good the rest of the experience was somewhat average. The rooms are quite small, which means that you more or less only have a bed and a minimal area for your luggage and the bathroom at least in our room desperately needs refurbishing definitely of older date and again very small. The reason why Daedalus gets a three in rating rather than two is the fact that the pool area is very nice and the staff are very friendly.

Let me start with - I'm picky on location and cleanliness and would I stay at Daedalus Hotel again. We stayed for 3 nights in June 2013 with 2 teens, my husband and I. Rooms were clean as were the grounds. Prior to our departure I had read there were a lot of stairs. There is one staircase - Outside - that leads from the front of the building to the pool area HOWEVER there is an elevator if that is too much for you. Breakfast was the best we had throughout our travels in Greece. Staff was helpful.

Stayed here on our 2 nights in santorini. The hotel is great. Organised our quad bikes with pick up and drop off service to the hotel. Pool was good. Breakfast was average. Will return to this hotel if ever we return to santorini.
