I searched and searched to find a hotel to stay in Mykonos that didnt have lots and lots of stairs as we are öldies" any my husband has a bit of a problem hip. Also so many of the hotels were way out of our price range of 130euro a night. On advice from a number of trip advisor contributors we booked this hotel and I was a little wary as it is was so reasonably priced. This hotel is a true find. It is family run and newly renovated and is just the most wonderful traditional hotel right in the old town of Mykonos. The hotel is charming with a small pool, more like a jacussi really and I didnt really see any one using it but that wasnt what we were there for.
The rooms are so comfortable with a fridge, a lovely bath and such a comfortable bed.
There are shutters so you are able to leave the windows open and get a lovely breeze at night. There is a small table and chairs outside but it is a shared terrace where people walk by. However we slept so well and never heard any noise, even though we heard people talking the next day about getting homat at 2.00/3.00am. There were rooms higher up in the hotel with private balconies that looked nice, but we had asked for not many stairs, so our room was perfect for us. On the other side of the hotel overlooking the pool there were 1 or 2 rooms at a lower level with private balconies so they would be good to request. This isnt a hotel where the "party people stay", however there were a lot of younger people staying here but noise was never an issue.
We didnt eat breakfast there as it was an extra charge. We just prepared fruit and yogurt and enjoyed it outside the room. The staff were very helpful with advice re restaurants, directions etc. They were also very concerned when we had to call a doctor to my husband as he had suspected food poisoning one night.
The location is so handy, right in the old town, about 10 min walk to Little Venice, about 15 mins to the harbour and about 20 mins to the bus stop so easy to get round and explore the whole island.
The hotel picked us up at the ferry, helped walk our luggage down to the hotel and when we left also took us back to the ferry and dragged our luggage up the hill to the car all at no extra charge.
Dont stay anywhere else when you are in Mykonos. Thank you to the members who recommended this hotel you did us a real favour.
