“Noise and more noise”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2008

Just home and when reading the reviews here we think those writing such fantastic reviews did not stay at the Vencia.

Not at all impressed with the hotel, its location and the constant traffic noise.

We asked for a room change to get some peace and quiet but it was refused.

This is not a cheap hotel and we expected better. Much better.

Beware the traffic folks.

We have just returned from a lovely holiday in Mykonos. The Vencia Boutique Hotel exceded our expectations. The staff are really friendly and genuiene. The hotel is immaculate with the greatest attention to the smallest detail, for example the beautiful plants in the gardens or the soothing colours choosen for the rooms. Our room was stunning. Clean, contempory and very realxing with excellent views of the town and habours. Don't worry about any noise - you won't hear it as the hotel is double glazed and is far enough away from the centre of the town but close enough to walk into for food, drinks etc. Last but not least that pool - HEAVEN!! Next time it's the superior suite for us. Yammas!!!

It is a great feeling to sit by the pool and your eye to face 3 different colours of blue. A feast for the eye!

An amazing hotel for relaxation. If it wasn't my first time in Myconos I think I would like to spend all the days in the hotel and never go out.

The rooms are spacy and modern decorated. I think that all of them have this fantastic view of the sea. The hotel is really close to the town, perfect location for reaching downtown easily with all its live places and then returning in 5 minutes to a hotel that seems so isolated and quiet.

Stella and Antonis at the reception are always there for anything I would need, and the rest of the staff is really kind and helpfull. Don't avoid trying the greek specialties in the small hotel restaurant!

A wonderful boutique hotel!

My partner and I stayed at Vencia in mid-May just at the start of the season. Our time there was excellent, from our arrival and friendly greeting, to the room, food, location, and the staff. The room was tastefully decorated, clean, and had an amazing view of the town and the harbor. We serendipitously arrived back one night to see fireworks from our window down at the windmills of Mykonos. This hotel is outstanding. The hotel is at the top of town, with a 10 minute walk to all the shops and restaurants, bus stop and ferry. The climb to the hotel from town could be a concern to some, but it allows for the hotel's amazing view.

Vencia has a B&B feel but with the amenities of a small hotel. If you want to experience the relaxation, entertainment, shopping, food and fun Mykonos is famous for, this is it. We stayed 3 nights for our 10th anniversary.

We booked the Superior Suite and the pictures posted tell the story. If it's anywhere close to your budget, grab it. This room was massive with a huge sitting area, great bathroom (the rainwater shower was hard to get out of), queen bed and had the largest deck with an outdoor dining and furniture arrangement. The outside facing wall is almost all windows! You're never missing the view inside or out. Open the two doors to the deck and the sea breeze gently blows in. We had a great dinner on our deck the first night, with the staff delivering everything to our table outside. Vencia's food was some of the best we had and we ate at some nice places in the town.

Reviews mentioning noise are correct; however, there are no hotels within walking distance to the heart of it all that aren't near a major road - including the 5 star hotels. If silence is your goal, you're better off at a secluded beach resort far away from all the action. We never found it to be annoying and our room was perhaps closest to the road.

In the end, Vencia's location and amenities made this a very memorable anniversary. We'll cherish the relaxing days by the pool and the late night cocktails and shopping downtown. Special thanks to Stella for her never-ending attention to detail.

We would highly recommend Venica, its a lovely hotel, we had a wonderfully relaxing time.

Location: Sits above Mykonos town, lovely view of the sunset, with a short walk into the town, downhill on the way, uphill on the way home! The hotel is on a main road, which allows easy access for getting about on the island, noise wasn't really an issue for us.

Room: We stayed in a double with sea view. Large sized room. Cleanliness was excellent. Bathroom was large, amazing shower. Bed was firm and comfortable.

Service: The staff were very helpful and friendly, they make you feel like one of the family. Breakfast had a good selection. Make sure you have a cocktail by the pool! Lovely.

Value: As we were just before high season the value was excellent. The view, the room, the service, the pool, its all worth it.

We booked Vencia hotel for 5 nights in May after reading all the good reviews about it here. However when we arrived we were told that our room was still occupied by the previous guest. The story was that the guest had a serious heart problem and could not check out of the hotel. The check-in woman told us it's so serious that they might need to arrange a helicopter ride to athens. The woman told us that the hotel was fully booked and they didn't know when this guest could check out so they had to move us to Hermes hotel next door which they claimed had the same rating. We had a quick look at the rooms at Hermes and it was nothing like Vencia hotel. Not modern and the sea view room faces the main road so it was noisy. We told them we would not take it and will look for another hotel ourselves. They quickly tried to look for another hotel and told us they would upgrade us to the 5 star Grand Beach hotel . They took us to the hotel and as it's getting late and the hotel lobby looked quite nice we decided to just take it without looking at the room first. We regreted it after 1 night at the hotel as it's nothing 5 star (see our review on this hotel). Anyway cut the long story short, we told vencia they if there was any room on the second day and they told us that the guest still had not moved out ( if he was so ill shouldn't they have moved him to the hospital already or can't they move him to another hotel? ) and there was no room available so they would try finding us a room the next day and call us back at 11am. We did not receive any call the next day and when we called them up at 11:30 they said they didn't want to wake us up so early since we are on our holiday. They then told us there were still no room available and would offer us free dinner at Vencia as a good gesture. We told them we wanted a refund and find a new hotel ourselves. This is when they said they would also find another accomodation for us. By then we did not believe anything they said anymore and just found another hotel ourselves. On the first day we believed their story about the previous guest being sick but after 3 days the whole story just sounded fishy and looking back now could they have not reshuffled the room around since there would be people checking in and out everyday. It looks like they just overbooked and we just got bumped and they made up this whole story so we would not make a fuss. They did try very hard to find us other accomodations but we think its only because they would still get a cut of the profit from the other hotel since this is low season and the other hotels were half empty anyway. If they had to refund us they would have got nothing and had to pay the booking agency fee.
We were so looking forward to our 5 nights of relaxing holiday and all this had ruined our holiday for us. Beware when you book your accomodation with them . Maybe we are the victims of their success.

P.S the hotel and the rooms did look very nice. Only if we had a chance to enjoy it we would probably have rated it a 5!
