“Wonderful fresh hotel, perfect location and helpful and friendly staff”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

This hotel has wonderful and super-friendly helpful staff, that will make sure your holiday will be wonderful. The location is perfect, it´s few steps from the city-center of Fira but still very quiet and peaceful place for relaxing. You can easily reach all the hot spots of Santorini from the hotel. As we are aestethic people everything must look nice and harmonious, we loved our room beside the pool, the garden and the pool area was awesome, really nicely decorated and well kept. This hotel is perfect for sunbathers, since the sun shines to the pool the whole day, sun beds and the pool are really nice and this is the few places we have stayed that you don´t have to fight or wakeup 6.00 a.m. to get a sunbed :) and the pool is not over crowded. Before we went to this hotel, we read reviews of tripadvisor, and I have to say that as we have been traveling all around the world and seen all kind of hotels, I do not agree with the negative reviews of this hotel given here in tripadvisor. We are very demanding and experienced tourists, and since we have nothing but positive feedback for this hotel, we highly recommend this hotel for everyone staying in Fira, Santorini. We definitely will be back in Daedalus Hotel. We want to thank the hotel staff for making our stay so lovely and unforgettable!!!!

I have stayed at this hotel during the Easter holiday and find the rooms of good size and clean. The Balcony got good views. Very close to Fira station and centre. A supermarket at the doorstep and all you need from booking a car or excursion are very close to the hotel. Above all the staff are very helpful and the free transfer to the airport and the complementary bottle of wine and fruit basket are a bonus. I had a little problem with the settling the bill, but it was sorted promptly by the reception. Their recommendations of restaurant to dine is spot on “Mama's House, 2 minutes away from the hotel”. I will book this hotel again if I go to Santorini.

Room Tip: Hire a quadbike and see the sunset from the lighthouse side of the island.

Before a week my friend and I decided to visit Santorini! We would like to stay in a hotel so so so close to the center. The best choice was Daedalus hotel. It's a very beautiful hotel, 2-3 minutes on foot away from the center. With a large and clean swimming pool. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. They also have view to the garden and the swimming pool. The breakfast is a buffet and it's full of everything. While you have your breakfast you have and a view of the swimming pool.
The staff is very well infomerd, helpful and smilin!! They made us feel comfort like at our home. In about 2 months we was thinking to travel again to an other island but because Santorini is an amazing island and we also found the best hotel for our stay we desided to return back to Santorini at the same hotel of course!

Just forget the 4 stars.small dirty rooms especially the bathroom.Don t believe the fotos.Staff friendly but not informative at all.Noisy rooms and we advise you not to prefer it.The pool was not for use because it was still dirty.Generally you can see that the hotel and especially the rooms are really old and not good cared.
The two main reasons for booking were the stars and the pictures - both are a cheat!
Big mistake

Dear ms-mr Karachaliou ,

I am really sad to receive such a bad comment from you and most of all I am very concerned by the fact that Daedalus was not able to fulfill your expectations.
Your reservation that was booked through your agent concerned a standart room, and we followed their request by offering you the specific room type. As long as the issue of the pool the weather was not the best these days to all the islands of the Cyclades had strong winds. I happened to those days had weather, is a condition that is sometimes beyond our control.
Our hotel’s interior is following a minimal style of decoration. I would like to inform you that Daedalus has been fully renovated this year (interior and exterior).

Kind regards,
Mary Kazaniatzi

Was feeling positive about this hotel after reading the recent reviews. Front of house staff very helpful. However, Rooms noisy. Can hear all other occupants in rooms around you. Noisy corridors and slamming doors..seriously the noisiest place we have had in 6 weeks of traveling. Bathrooms tiny and in desperate need of a refurb. Shower runs hot and cold! The motel has not had anything done to it for some time..most rooms looking very tired.Location okay..close to buses and supermarket and a nice walk to the town centre. Star rating not a true reflection of property. ..very disappointing.

Don't let reviews from years ago deter you from this beautiful hotel.

Great location in Fira near the bus stop and supermarket.

Our group had three rooms that despite being next to each other varied in size. All were big enough.

The pool area was gorgeous and breakfast was good. Some of the plumbing issues mentioned on here (low water pressure, slow hot water) may have some basis but it did not affect our trip and I doubt that much of Greece has any better plumbing.

The service we received was excellent with the girl behind the desk going out of her way to help us several times.

I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We travelled Santorini,Greece for our honeymoon.
This hotel is in fira fair.a few minutes walk from crowded downtown.
The opposite is a Carrifour. Very convinence.
Besides,parking beyond is free.

The most impression is that the nice breakfast.
Many choices western style and plenty of fruits.
You can ask the free wi-fi password at the check-in desk.
And if you want to rent a car, the check-in clerk will contact for you with a better price.
Rooms are clean but pls choose upstairs or in the yard.
Coz the rooms basefloor seems a little bit small.
24 hours hot water for bathing.
Nice choice and already recommended to a friend of mine.
