“Great Santorini town location”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

This hotel is in a great spot, and even though it has no view it is very close by and amongst the town. It is very noisy because of the busy intersection it is on, and rooms all smell like smoke, but otherwise fine for an inexpensive hotel for an expensive but beautiful city.

Room Tip: You won't be able to get a non smoking room, ask for the back area off the main road.

My sisters and I went to Santorini early November 2011.. It was already off season, maybe that's why we got a great deal on the hotel price.. ??? This was my third time to Santorini, but the first time for my sisters...I was a little disappointed when I first entered the lobby, very basic and kind of old furnitures.. The rooms were in better condition, and clean. What impressed me was the friendly staff at the reception Valentina and Danai... both of them are very helpful and ready to give any informations we needed.. The location of the this hotel is fantastic, in the middle of the old town Fira, and you can simply walk everywhere, to see the beautiful sceneries of Aegian sea, restaurants, bars, and shopping Shop..shops...everywhere... The taxi and bus station to take you to any point of the island is just 5 minutes walk. They serve continental breakfast, very very basic but the bread and cheese they served were delicious. So, if you are looking for a place to spent with your good friends / sisters, not so expensive, don't mind walking, likes shopping, and good food.., this hotel is recommended.. We left Santorini feeling very happy, and would return to this hotel someday... Thanks to Valentina and Danai you were great girls..!!

Room Tip: If possible ask to see the rooms, they have choices of room view..

Little more than a B&B. No pool or graden area or views, right beside a busy street and bar.

Room was basic with air con. Some damp in the bedroom and mold in the bathroom. Wobbly electrical fittings.

Breakfast is only continental, no fruit, yoghurts or museli.

Not much security either. No safe in the room and sometimes no one at reception so you can just pick up your key yourself and access the room.

Cheap but not so cheerful. Worth spending extra and getting a view and pool elsewhere even for a few nights after all it is why you come here.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere

We were very pleased of our stay at Pelican hotel. We went totally off season though. The price was very nice (of course). Room were comfortable and nicely decorated. The highlight of our stay was the breakfast which we had the choice to take at the very nice cafe right next to the hotel, called "Kipos". It was probably the best I've been served in the island (in any cafeteria).

It's our first time staying at the little white houses and the Pelican blew our mind. You can never get tired of the white structures and the blue sea. Quiet yet it's situated at Fira, one of the biggest town on the island. We walked down the slope, rented a car and started our Island journey. It's got some more private rooms if that concerns you. Be sure to walk around the hotel before deciding which room to stay at.

At first I only stay in this hotel for one night but due to strike in greece we are force to extend one more night in this hotel and it turn out to be a good stay,eventhough its relatively simple hotel but its very easy to find a good food around the hotel and its very peaceful so you can relax your mind.Staff of this hotel also quite friendly and ready to accomodate your need
