Upon the stroll along the main Mykonos promenade, we saw the gates opening into a beautiful garden, enchanting and inviting. We entered, and following the path, arrived at the door to the hotel. This garden with the swimming pool on the side reminded so strongly of Capri's Quisisana, and the situation of the building as well, that I was sure it would be tremendously expensive...But to our surprise the room was more than affordable - $120 per night. I could not believe such luck - we fled from Maddalena Hotel and were now staying at Rochari, but Leto made us forget all the misfortunes...
At the time of our initial reservation, they had a room only for one night, but when we arrived in the morning, they could give us two nights. It was such an exceptional luck, and we received one of the best rooms, on the second floor, with an unobstructed sea view over the garden.
At the sunset, the birds chirped loud farewell to the day, and it was a perfect time to dissolve into the beauty of the view from the balcony, sipping Champagne...
I was very happy in Leto. After staying in other hotels in Athens, Santorini and Mykonos, I adjusted my expectations for Greek level of hospitality and comfort. Most definitely, this is not France or Italy. Objectively, the breakfast was excellent by Greek standards, you can have it outside, weather permitting. The pool area is beautiful, and perhaps drinks are very expensive - this must be due to the fact that in Greece there is a curious practice to let walk-ins use the pool if they buy drinks, and Leto welcomed such clients, although in early October the pool was empty.
The walled garden provides excellent isolation from the promenading crowds, thus this hotel is the most centrally situated, yet very quiet. If I return to Mykonos, I will stay ONLY in Leto. The room was HUGE, the bed quite comfortable, decor is somewhat poor and dated, but again by the time we got to Leto we were not fussy anymore after other Greek travel experiences :)
The bathroom is very noisy indeed - you cannot turn off the ventilator. But the bath tub is deep and long in a pleasant old-fashioned way.
A great place for Mykonos, the memories of it make me dream again...
