We spent 2 nights at the Dorana Hotel which is run by Minas and his loverly wife Flora - two of the most delightful, helpful, people you could ever hope to meet. The hotel is spotlessly clean and close to the sea. The studio was spacious and extremely comfortable. Free wi-fi was available with an excellent connection during the whole...

In Dorana you can rent a studio - very good location near the sea, close to famous Neptun Fountain. It is located in Diafani Prot of Olympos that you can get by small boat from the main harbour of Karpathos Island or by PREVELIS ferry. Very nice people, great idea of starting hiking tours.

We were warmly greeted by Minas and Flora. Diafani is a pretty town on the beach on the island of Warpaths and DoranaHotel Apartments are perfectly located. The room was cheerful and clean with a very comfortable bed, bath and a balcony with a nice and wide open view. It was good to get back there after a long hike....

Diafani is the perfect place for me as bookwriter to find inspiration - and lot of new friends. The owners are so kind and hospitable. My latest five books are inspired at Karpathos and especially Diafani - my Paradise on Earth.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dorana Studios are located at Diafani which is at the Northern part of Karpathos. According to most people this area is the most ideal place for relaxation and walks. Diafani is famous for its abudance of fish, diving and spearfishing opportunities. Dorana Studios consist of studios, some double bed, triple bed and a studio with four beds. There is even an apartment with six beds. We have two new family apartments also. All studios have their own balcony and a beautiful sea view, which by the way is only 50 meters away from the studios. The port of Diafani is 200 meters away and close by, you will find restaurants, ouzo bars with traditional appetizers and fish taverns which have fresh fish everyday. If you want to see the amazing sunrise and enjoy Macarunes you can go to Olympos, the most traditional village of Karpathos. It is seven kilometers from Diafani; transportation is on a daily basis. You can also go on daily excursions to different beaches and to the nearby island of Saria by boat. Convinced the hotel organizes programs for individual consumers but also to groups up to 15 people in the trails since the place is ideal for walking to many and clean trails that are all signposted. Even do and guided tours paths but also the island of sarias by ferry from DIAFANI. ... more   less
