“Little gem in Santorini”
Reviewed May 31, 2008

We stayed four nights at Hotel Mylos and were very pleased with the service. It's not all out luxury but it does have caldera views which is a priviledge not cheapy bought. This is one of the few value for money hotels that has a caldera view. Rooms were basic but cosy and the cleaner very thorough. Breakfast was served on the deck every morning and was basic but adequate.
We hired a bike and enjoyed heading out to the beaches during the day but then returning to our hotel for spectacular sunset evenings on the caldera.

Stayed May 2008

We arrived in Santorini without reservations and spent a good deal of time looking for a hotel. I knew I had to have a caldera view, but didn't want to spend our entire vacation budget on one! Finally I found the Hotel Mylos! You could easily miss it or not know about its great views...look for the windmill in Firostefani. We stayed 4 nights. For 60 Euro a night this a good hotel choice.

It is not luxury, so if you must have all the comforts in the world you might not care for it...but we had a good experience. The only warning to have is that there aren't shower curtains...and the bathroom doubles as the entire shower...but it was still worth it in my opinion.

The owners have a little shop downstairs to buy groceries, and there is a wonderful little coffee shop across the street called 'Fresh Coffee' that has fresh baked pastries in the mornings for breakfast. The view was as breathtaking as any hotel on the caldera (which would have cost twice the price).

No matter what, definintely stay in Firostefani. It's a short walk and its quiet at night...and the views are breathtaking. The photo is from our balcony at sunset.

Simply unforgettable!
Our trip to Santorini will remain one of our best memories. We stayed
2 days in Athens and then we took a boat for a wonderful travel to Santorini under very good weather conditions. There we stayed not less than 6 days to discover the island: beaches, wineries, trekking along its typical walking paths made of stones.

My husband and I enjoyed every days spent there, especially at the sunset time, when we were sitting on the balcony of our hotel, Hotel Mylos, after a long day of excursion, to relax and get some rest. If I had to summarize the hotel I would say: simple and lovely. According to my researches on the Web, it is difficult to find a hotel that price on the Caldera side. I mean a decent hotel at that price. But we found it! It is a small hotel very easy to access, closed to the bus station. What we appreciated the most is its quiet.
Our room faced the Volcano and was opposite the street, so we were not disturbed. We have been well welcoming by the owner, a very discrete person and very kind. Nice breakfast, decent and clean room
... there is nothing to add. This is a hotel I would recommend for people with a limited budget but who don't want nevertheless to sacrifice the view of the beauty of this landscape every morning when they get up and every night when they go to sleep. Santorini is definitely one of our best destination!
