One of the nicest hotels on the island. Not a 5-star newly rich design temple - much more than that in my opinion! Clean rooms, a wonderful view and the friendliest staff you can imagine. Will tell all my friends to choose the Little Rochari as their 'home' when travelling to Mykonos.

Thank you, Rochari family, for a wonderful week...

Little Rochari is exceptionally clean, the rooms are bright and those on the second floor have great views, but it is far and away the staff that make this hotel.

Every staff member is friendly, helpful and really will go out of their way to help however they can. We wanted a massage on a rare rainy day. When the most known massage therapists were booked, the staff didn't give up till they found someone new, a physiotherapist recently arrived from Italy. Great massage, but the trouble they went to to organise and follow up afterwards was great.

That's just one example. Need to go somewhere? They'll practically take you there the directions are so good. Transfers are arranged at no cost. They keep a stock of hire scooters at the hotel to get you on the road faster (I think there is a family connection with the owners of the hotel and the bike place). Phone charger? Got the lot. International power adapters? Those too. When does breakfast finish? When you want it to. Need a bottle of water at 4am? Sure. Oh, your iphone screen is too small, here, use this notebook we keep on hand for guests.

People say Mykonos is expensive - maybe it is, but the Little Rochari is great value for Mykonos, and Mykonos is nothing compared to Santorini. Little Rochari cost us 130 euro a night. A similar hotel (minus the service) in Santorini is 180 euro. Scooters are 10 euro a day from Little Rochari, 25 euro a day from Santorini.

Besides the service, the other thing you'll notice is the cleanliness. Even the bed covers seem to get changed daily and these all white rooms really are all white. One thing though - the bathtubs and showers are small, and the bathroom floor *will* get lots of water on it. If that's going to ruin your holiday, maybe look elsewhere. I'm sure the staff would come and dry the floor after each shower if you asked them to.

The breakfast is great too - omelettes cooked to order and the usual range of pastries, breads, fruits etc. And of course fresh squeezed orange juice.

The lobby area of the Little Rochari is charming and roomy, but you'll probably find yourself at the main hotel, a couple of hundred metres away. That's where all the action takes place. So if bustling breakfasts and busy sunset drinks are your thing, head to the main hotel. You can have breakfast at either hotel and the bar staff, Darren inside and Kelly at the pool bar, are both brilliant. Challenge them to see who does a better strawberry daiquiri ;-)

The Rochari, and therefore the Little Rochari, are gay hotels. They probably call themselves gay friendly, but they're too well known in well traveled circles to be anything else. They're definitely straight friendly too though ;-)

If you don't mind a smile and a wave or a good looking poolside, but would prefer to be able to escape for some peace and quiet sometimes, I don't think you can beat the combination of staying at the Little Rochari and heading the Rochari for the pool or drinks. There is a great pool at the Little Rochari too.

If you are looking at the Elysium Hotel, save yourself some money and go for the Rochari. Basically the same crowd but with better rooms and brilliant service. And no killer hill climb!

I have to admit that the Rochari was recommended to me by friends from Australia, Singapore and Germany. I was actually a bit hesitant after that as these were my chattiest, partiest friends in each country. But I'm glad we did follow their advice in the end. The staff are not in your face (i hate that!), but they are there for you when you want anything at all. Even a chat. Our last night in Mykonos coincided with a "Opa-Opa" party at the Rochari pool bar, so we got to experience a real Greek party complete with plate smashing. And quite a headache the next day.

This really is a great place to stay - make sure you book ahead. We went at the start of the season and were lucky that Stavroula could fit us in a day early and we could extend our stay by four nights, without once putting us in the "garden view" rooms, which I understand are noisy and don't have a great outlook.

A great little place. Expensive, of course (it's Mykonos after all), but with a great location, big, bright rooms with good views (though "garden view" dungeons are to be avoided at all costs!) and nice pool and lounge area, good breakfast and a very friendly staff. Most of the clientele is gay (again... Mykonos...) so if that's going to bother you stay somewhere else (another island, preferably!), but it is a very low-key place without a lot of partying or other hijinks. The two things that drove me nuts was that the shower was tiny and the drain in the bathroom floor wasn't in the lowest spot. Result: no amount of care could keep from flooding the bathroom, which would then stay flooded until the housekeepers came through. Also, while the marble floors everywhere are keep cool and are pretty to look at, they don't do much for sound insulation, so light sleepers be ware.

The hotel is nice in the common spaces, but less than average in the rooms. It has great views as long as you get a room on the 2nd floor. If you are on the first floor, some of the rooms have big bushes that block part of the view. When you book, ask to be in a room that doesn't have a bush in front of it. I was in Room 7. That has a bush.

Our room was as basic as possible. It had all plain white walls except for a Van Gogh print in a cheap gold frame. The furniture was also cheap-looking basic wood. None of the great design sense from the lobby made it into the rooms. The bathroom was adequate, but had literally a 2 foot by 2 foot shower. It had a curtain, but you had to leave the curtain open when you showered to fit. Then of course the bathroom floor turned into a small lake, because the drain was oddly placed on the other side of the toilet and the floor did not slope down towards it.

But the service was great. We got picked up and dropped off at the port by a very friendly man with a huge van. The staff at the front desk was always extremely helpful. There are also 2 common bathrooms that people can use after they check out. For example, on our last day we checked out at 12noon, but our ferry didn't leave until 9pm. We were able to go to the beach, come back and shower, then go to dinner and go to the ferry. It is a very nice touch.

Little Rochari isn't anything spectactular, but we had a great sea view of Mykonos, the room was perfectly fine with a comfortable bed and hot shower, and that's about all we need. If you're in Mykonos to hang out at the hotel you're in the wrong place. The town was a short walk down the hill and most everything was in walking distance. The hotel will do free pick up and drop off at the port which was quite nice.
