We booked to stay at the Eleni for two nights (13-15th July 2007) back in February, and received an email telling us that we would be met at the airport. When we arrived, there was no sign of anyone to meet us. After about 45 minutes I phoned them to ask what had happened, and they sent the daughter referred to in previous review to collect us.
She gave us a story that the previous occupants of our room had had a motorbike accident earlier that morning and therefore could not move out of the room. She said that she had searched all around for another room for us in town, but couldn't find anything as close as the Eleni. She said that she could take us to an alternative that was only ten minutes walk to town, and although it was more expensive than the Eleni, she would cover the difference. As she seemed convincing, we agreed, and she took us there. As she left, she again told us thet it was 8-10 minutes walk to all the bars and restaurants of Mykonos.
We walked to town three times during our two days, and the quickest that we managed down hill to Little Venice was just over 25 minutes, taking longer on the return up hill. The alternative accommodation that we stayed in was full of Uruguayan students who shouted and sang until about 3.30 in the morning, both nights.
I have written this "non-review" to warn others that they may be duped like us if they try to stay here. I suspect that the Eleni had recieved a request for a longer booking that our 2 nights, and merely decided that they didn't want to honour our booking, and passed us to a friend who was not full, probaby recieving a back-hander in the process.
