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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is my second visit to see Minas at Dorana and it won't be the last. He and his wife are super helpful in every way, offering ideas to spend time and offering lifts to start of trails and the village of Olympus. Diafani is like stepping back in time, not for everyone, but if everyone was here it would lose its charm and appeal

Great place to stay in Diafani! Our room was spacious, had a nice balcony, hot water was good, and the internet worked. The owner was helpful in planning ideas for treks with us each morning during breakfast. There are many hikes and walks that can be done right from the doorstep.

We had booked a studio at Dorana for my family back in March - the day before arriving in Diafani I was reading of a review saying to pay attention to the fact that often the host accomodates people in other apartments outside Dorana Studios ..and guess what? when we arrived he told us that we would stay in an apartment since he had no vacancy in the Dorana Studios!!! We went anyway to have a look at it, although we told him this was not fair and that he should have told us that we would stay in a studio not in the Dorana building before booking. But it went much worse - the apartment was smelly, very hot, dark, dirty, with one of the bed accomodated in a wood sofa in the kitchen, other 2 beds in a corridor and the kingbed was a matrass on the floor, on the second floor (ca 1,30mt high). Fortunately, although it was 12th of August we managed to find another place where to stay in Diafani ..but we really risked to have our vacations ruined - I feel this was very unrespectful, not professional and actually close to be not legal. I would never recommend Dorana Studios.

Lovely studios and in a great situation few minutes walk from the beach. Studios spotlessly clean and very spacious. You get a warm welcome from Minas and Flora and nothing to much trouble. Also if you enjoy hiking then Minas is the man and can explain routes or arrange trips out for you. Superb breakfast served in the mornings. Highly recommend...

So love these studios. Minas and Flora are such welcoming hosts and go out of they way to make your visit enjoyable.. Great position and views of mountains and the sea. Only negative I would have is they need kettles and mugs in the rooms. Otherwise it is fantastic..

Wonderful studios and apartments in Diafani. Very large rooms with views of the sea and mountain's spotlessly clean. Short walk to the beach and the taverna's. The owners Minas and Flora are very helpful and nothing to much trouble. Flora makes wonderful cakes for breakfast. If you can buy supplies in Pigadia as only one small shop in Diafani.

I stayed four nights at the Dorana last week - June 11-16, 2017 - on the recommendation of my daughter, who lives on Karpathos, and found it perfect. A few seconds' stroll from the seafront tavernas of Diafani - just a few, but of generally excellent quality - it had everything: pleasant views, peaceful ambiance, good size, comfortable bed, cleanliness, fridge and small hob. Plus Minas and his wife, who could not have been more friendly and helpful. A lovely stay that bore out all the good reviews the Dorana has previously received. If you're going to Diafani, don't hesitate.
