Orion Hotel
Ranked #20 of 70 Hotels in Faliraki
Reviewed 17 October 2012

We booked this hotel because it was the cheapest for our dates. So we expected that it would be not very good. But wasn't true. The hotel isn't new, but rooms are convinient and clean. We were in the hottest time of the year and air-conditions worked well.
The hotel has good location - the beach is 5 minut away.
There are a couple of shops near the hotel - we bought there fruits and water.
We took HB and it always was enough food for breakfest and choise from two dishes of the day in the evening. Drinks during the supper are inexpensive.

Room Tip: Don't take the ground floor - the balconies on it very close to the swimmingpool.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday staying at the Orion and feel confident to recommend us. Your Room Tip is valuable to future guests - some prefer a pool view but for a more peaceful and private experience our garden view studios are a better choice.
Thank you for complimenting our restaurant - I will pass on your comments to Kyriakos, Zoe and the team. We are glad you appreciated our fair pricing on drinks - we offer quality drinks in both the restaurant and pool bar at lower prices than will be found elsewhere in bars in Faliraki.
We hope to see you again soon!
Mark.

My family stayed in the apartments for 2 weeks from August 08th 2012. We found everything here fantastic from the staff in the Bar, the cleaners, the Resturant food and not forgetting the Reception Staff. Everyone was helpful, friendly, polite and accomodating. The food in the Bar was fantastic and so was the Resturant, which also gave a discount of 10% to us as we were staying in the apartments. The hotel is a 10 min walk to the beautiful sandy beach and about a 10 minute walk to the centre of town. It is in a fantastic location and everything is so clean. The pool is amazing and you can actually use it until midnight!! and not an ear infection in sight. We had a fantastic time and were really looked after by Mark the Manager when our son broke his hand! Thank you all so much for making our holiday so great. We will come and see you again...soon we hope.

I hope your son's plaster is still in one piece and that his hand recovers well.
Thanks for the great review - I will make sure to let everyone know your appreciation.

Me and four friends visited the Orion just last week and the hotel is set in the perfect location for a group of young people as we were a short walk from the main bar and club streets in Faliraki. The hotel itself was basic yet extremely clean and we were given clean towels etc every day. The food and restaurant at the hotel is great with the best quality food and awesome service! Maria is lovely, she deserves a medal for the hours she works and the service she provides! We love her she is like our Greek mum! Paulie and Katie were also lovely and always had a smile on their faces! Mark the night porter was always very helpful and greeted us with a smile when we strolled in at stupid times in the morning! Overall a great hotel and even though we were a group of friends the hotel is definitely for families as well as the hotel is extremely friendly and lively! Thank You for a great holiday!!!

Hi Girls, glad to see you made it safely home to Cheshire.
Thank you for your lovely review - it's always great to hear when guests have enjoyed their stay with us.
I'll make sure that Maria, Polis and Katie know how much you appreciated their service, care and smiles in the Pool Bar & Café! I'll also tell Kyriakos, Zoe and the team in the Orion Restaurant you enjoyed the food.
It is great that you highlighted the great work our housekeepers do - unlike many smaller hotels our housekeepers visit to clean and change towels 6 days a week (I don't have time to check if they go to church on Sundays...) - they'll be delighted to hear that you bothered to mention their, often unheralded, work! Indeed our housekeepers really are the unsung heroes - whilst our official check-in time is from 1400h they do a fabulous job of cleaning rooms at break-neck speed to allow 95% of morning arrivals to be given rooms without having to wait.
As there is no such thing as a "stupid time of the morning" in Faliraki it was always a pleasure to greet you on your return - and a big thank you for being great guests and doing your partying in the Pool Bar and out in Faliraki's great bars and clubs - and being respectful of other guests who were sleeping by being quiet! My almost infamous "Shhhh!" wasn't necessary for you. :)
Finally, thanks for pointing out that the Orion is good for families; we are foremost a a hotel for families and couple of all ages - but welcome small groups of young friends too provided they are respectful and observe our "quiet at night" policy to allow those who wish to sleep to do so without being disturbed at "silly hours"!
You will always be welcome to come again, we hope to see you soon!
Mark.
