“It is not worth your money!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

The location is ideal.. That is all. The shower uses salty sea water. The showers are not designed correctly, the water spills all over the bathroom and into the bedroom.
I have had softer loofah sponges than the towels provided!
If you are into sleeping on a flat rock or concrete slab, this is your place.
Air conditioner does not work .. AT All!! Second evening called front desk because it was hot and dripping water on the bed!
On the last night it broke open and dropped dead bugs onto my daughter's head (her bed was directly underneath). After calling front desk all we got were clean sheets and "what is problem? Is natural for machine to have insects .. You know?"
My idea of equity was to discount one evening (of the three)and offer a free trip to the port.
The owner was horrible and insulting! And insisted I was trying to have a free vacation!!! He asked why I hadn't notified him earlier! The accident did not occur earlier!
I tried to explain to him that we did not have to deal with those issues if he maintained his hotel.
The most embarrassing thing is I didn't know that man was the owner. I thought he was the groundskeeper . The very sweet receptionist and a younger gentleman in a black jacket appeared to be the owners. They were poised, articulate and groomed.
The owner shuffled around in dirty an wrinkled clothing every day. His hair was unkept and his breath was terrible... Maybe I should not make assumptions about what a hotel owner should look like, but it is difficult to take someone seriously with those appearances!
He refused to negotiate and threw us out saying he suspected I didn't have money

Quiet hotel on quiet street. Maybe too quiet for some. A few ignorable tourist shops/bars nearby except the convenience store directly opposite. Bus stop for Fira just outside, bike/quad hire just next door. Beach about 500 metres behind hotel.

They are a friendly-ish owner couple however the wife became a little defensive when we notified them the shower water was cold. Her continual advice was to “keep it running” which we did for about an hour each morning, 4 days in a row to no avail. The swimming pool is also unheated. Breakfast is very continental for both visitors and flies. Cereal, cheese and small rolls. Not much more. Huge card attached to room key to activate electricity.

It was clean however, no bedbugs and the “room” was more like a little apartment.

My friend & I just got back from staying 4 nights @ this place. We Loved it! Of course it's going to be an older building,, we're in Santorini for God's sake. But the grounds & rooms were beautiful. The green doors & shutters that opened up to the fresh ocean breeze were my favorite. Each room had their own private balcony/patio , which was great. We even had airconditioning ! That worked very well, I might add. The owners were Amazing! Any time we came in they greeted us & made sure everything was ok. They offered many helpful suggestions & advice on what to do all over the island. Even when we felt like we were bugging them with our hundreds of questions, they had No problem answering us & making us feel valued. The hotel is only a few minute walk to the beach & Many wonderful restaurants. There are even several bars/restaurants right on the road that the Drossos is located on. And if you want to venture around the island, you can easily do so via city bus, which you can catch just across the street for anly 2.20 Euro. I would absolutely recommend this place! Happy Travels!

The lady at reception is incredibly nice and helped us out so much with information and tips and really cared that we had a great stay. 2min walk from beach and nice clean rooms with good pool. Buffet breakfast was a but strange but there are plenty of bakeries and cafés nearby. Would highly recommend and hope to come back one day!
