The location of the hotel is perfect! Only 5 minutes away from the bus station and within minutes from restaurants and supermarkets. Wifi is decent. The staffs were very friendly!!! The breakfast was very delicious too :) occasionally at night it was noisy for a bit but I was too tired and slept through it.

A lovely meal was had by my mum, dad, hubby and myself. We had walked passed this restaurant a couple of times from our hotel on the way into Thira. Staff were very friendly and helpful if you wanted to order fish they offered to bring it up to table for you to see! Love very atmosphere with great service!

Myself , husband and teenage son stayed here for 5 nights. The room was large for 3 of us and very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Air conditioning was included in the price and there was consistently good WiFi reception. The rooms were cleaned and towels replaced daily. The staff were very friendly and helpful, recommending local restaurants and booking them...

This hotel was rated 3 stars -- I am not sure why. It is older and does not have an elevator, so if you are on the upper floor, it may be uncomfortable walking up and down. The room amenities are basic, but clean. the front desk staff are extremely helpful and good at what they do. The hotel is...

Located near the main drag of Fira, the Pelican is a decent hotel. Nothing special or particularly grand. Rooms are comfortable ,although the beds are in need of updating, and clean. Located directly next door to a garden restaurant, some rooms can be a bit noisy in the evening. It's location is great for shopping and dining options.The staff is...

My friend and I went to the Pelican for dinner, where we found out about this wine tasting. We loved dinner, so we were excited to come back for the wine tasting. It was lovely to get to see the 400 year old wine cellar hidden below the restaurant. The host taught us about the history and make of each...

A large group of us went for dinner here, and it was amazing! Fresh fish is brought to your table and the waiting staff are very helpful and attentive. The food was superb - all 14 of us were delighted! I had the stuffed squid and my husband had octopus. After dinner we met Maria - the wine expert! She...

Just being on the island of Santorini was so special, but having dinner in the Pelican's Garden was extraordinary!!! Trees and vines made the roof of this outdoor garden restaurant. Our group enjoyed appetizers, salads and wine and relaxed and felt like we were in another world. Highly recommend!!!!

I stayed with my boyfriend at Pelican hotel for a weekend. The location is perfect at the centre of Fira. The room was nice and clean. Mostly I enjoyed the lounge area which is very bright and welcoming. The decoration is minimalistic, white matching with the traditional furniture and the stuff was always there to help you, serve you some...
