“Decent budget option but a few words of warning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

I stayed here for 9 nights in June with my husband. This was our second trip to Mykonos and we decided to try a new hotel (last time we stayed at Mykonos Bay Hotel which we would highly recommend, especially if you choose a room with a sea view). We were attending a wedding on the island and had quite a few friends also staying in Mykonos that week all at different hotels which gave us a useful comparison.

Firstly, you need to be aware that this hotel is quite far away from Mykonos town – we are in our early 30s and are both fairly fit yet still the walk took at least 20 mins. We knew this before we booked and decided it wouldn’t be a major issue for us as it was such an affordable rate (we paid £70 per night). The actual distance isn’t too bad (if you look on Google maps it doesn’t seem like a long walk) but the route you have to take is a nightmare. To get into town you have to walk down a dirt track on a steep hill with very poor lighting. Every time we had to go into town (most days – sometimes even twice a day) we dreaded the walk to town and felt like we just had to ‘get it over with‘. This isn’t something that you really want to be a feature of your holiday! So I would say that is the main reason why I won’t return to stay at this hotel. You can get a taxi into town for about 5 Euros but reception weren’t always very helpful when we tried to order one. After the first few days of our trip we got so bored of doing the walk back to the hotel from town up the very steep hill that we decided to always get taxis back from town which was a great decision! But you will need to factor this in to your budget if you choose to stay here and take taxis a lot.

To summarise the rest of our thoughts on this hotel…

Good points:
-Lovely big swimming pool with a (distant) view of the sea and just enough sun beds for everyone.
-Great value if you are looking for a nice enough hotel on a budget.
-Fairly quiet – when lying by the pool it was very chilled out and peaceful except for the last few days of our trip when a large group of teenagers came to stay and made a lot of noise shouting and running around the pool area.
-Clean rooms and fresh towels every day.
-Nice balcony with sea views – however, we had a shared balcony with the room next door so if they were out on their balcony we didn’t feel like sitting out on ours as it would have been a bit like joining them at their table in a restaurant!

Bad points:
-Very uncomfortable pillows, and as is quite usual in Europe our ‘double bed’ was actually 2 single beds pushed together which is indicative of the fact it was a budget 3* hotel.
-Breakfast was terrible – a tiny selection of food and what was on offer was so basic. The milk for cereal was served hot (strange) and the rest of the food was unhealthy and unappealing.
-Reception service – there wasn’t usually anyone very helpful at reception although one lady who worked there was very nice and tried to help us with anything we needed.
-Air-con unit in our room broke down but they did fix this the same day.

We spent four nights at the New Aeolos Hotel. First impressions were a little underwhelming, however for the price we paid we accustomed ourselves very quickly.

The pool area is beautiful (sun chairs are slightly uncomfortable after an hour). The rooms are a little distastefully decorated however i understand an older lady owns the hotel which reflects the decor. The fridge could be colder and the shower head more securely attached to the wall (it kept dropping on my head)

The staff, however, are very kind and friendly - especially Anita who tried to make our stay as comfortable as she could. It would've been nice to see a larger variety of breakfast options as well as some sort of other meal option rather than toasties and omelettes in case you wanted to have dinner at the hotel.

The hotel was still close to amenities such as mini marts, restaurants and service stations, however if you wanted to remain sweat free on a fancy night out, you will need to hire a quad bike or get a taxi into mykonos town - taxis can be a nightmare to get! We definitely experienced this on the way back from paradise beach, which in itself we found a waste of time and effort (unless you are 18)

Hope this review helps :)

On a last minute break to Mykonos we lucked upon the New Aeolos hotel. Just above the town of Mykonos and a ten minute walk in (downhill and twenty minutes back up!) with great views. The rooms are fine and very clean with good a/c. Anita on reception could not be any more helpful and the owner Anna is absolutely delightful! The pool area is great and breakfast adequate. We had a great stay.

I would summerise this hotel as a good budget hotel. It is a little run down and rough around the edges but it served our needs. We were checked into a ground floor room which opened out onto trees and bushes obscuring the view. On request we moved to the first floor which gave us a sea view which we were very happy with. The room was basic but had a fridge and ample storage space. Shower room is basic but clean. The breakfast lacked variety unfortunately but snacks can be purchased throughout the day.
We liked that the pool was quiet and spacious. No loud annoying music and plenty of sunloungers. Nice and open area from which you can look out, compared to next door which is all walled in.
It is a 10-15min walk into the centre down a steep hill. You dont have to be super fit. Its good for you!! And is good for burning off the calories youve consumed in Mykonos. We liked the location being away from the hustle and bustle but conveniently near.
When I left I actually left some shoes under the bed by accident. A particularly favourite pair of shoes. I contacted the hotel when I got home and after a bit of too-ing and fro-ing we made arrangements to return the shoes at my cost and I got them back a few weeks later. This actually ment a lot to me and I very much appreciated the time and effort that was made to do this. Customer service at its best.
Given the opportunity I would return.

The hotel itself was okay, very basic and a bit run down.
The fridge did not cool and the shower was falling off the wall causing it to flood the entire bathroom each time I used it.
Also there is no wifi available in the rooms, which differs from what is advertised.

Service however was fantastic and I was greeted immediately upon arrival and given lots of useful information. Any questions or assistance I needed throughout my stay was attended to promptly and the owner had an extensive knowledge about everything on the island and makes great recommendations for places to visit.

The walk into town is a fair hike. Going from the hotel to town is downhill and you either play russian roulette walking on the dangerous roads with crazy drivers, or you can walk down stairs / paths that I would not recommend walking down at night! Coming back to the hotel is all uphill and its a steep long walk! Be well prepared!!

The pool is beautiful as is the restaurant (however did not eat here so cannot comment on the food).

All in all, the hotel is average, however for the price cannot expect a luxurious resort.

Okay this is not a resort, but the rooms are clean and has everything you need. The location was as expected to get around, but my vote go completely to the owner and staff...and breakfast! Everyone was very helpful and friendly and just seem to effortlessly go with the flow...even fishing my sunglasses out of the pool wasn't too much! Thanks I had a lovely time.

Like all the other reviews, this is an excellent hotel and ideally located away from all the hustle and bustle of Mykonos town.
Panos, the owner/manager is extremely accommodating and friendly, the best host i have ever come across at a hotel.
i was also upgraded to an apartment at no extra cost and was very grateful for this.
the rooms were clean and modern and all the other staff were friendly and helpful....except for one!
The only complaint i have about this hotel is directed at one staff member named Anastasios.
He was a barman at the pool bar.
this man from the day i arrived harassed me sexually. He was sleazy, vulgar, unprofessional and tarnished my stay at Mykonos and this hotel.
i had asked him to stop the sexual connotations and come-ons dozens of times, but he did not stop. in the end i went and complained to Panos about him.

This sort of behavior is totally unacceptable,even for a gay man like myself.
This mans persistance and vulgar behavior is a discredit to this wonderful hotel and all the work Panos does to make his guests feel comfortable..
Anastasios was the most vulgar and unprofessional person i have ever come across.

Panios gave me 1 night stay for free to make me feel better but Anastasios still has a job at this hotel.
If i was the manager of this hotel, Anastasios would have been fired on the spot.

because of this behavior, i would not stay at this hotel again.
