“Fantastic hotel”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

This hotel is a great place to stay.
What it lacks in stars it more than makes up for in relaxing atmosphere and fabulous hosts.
-Rooms are a good size and clean
-good location outside the hustle and bustle of the city, but close enough.
-Wi-fi is of a good speed

The hosts could not have made us feel any more welcome. They gave great info about how to get around what to do and cooked us some really tasty traditional food.

Room Tip: It's worth getting the rooms with the balcony if you like sunbathing.

Hotel soumeli gardens is a simple but pleasant hotel. Perfect location just a 10 min walk to the heart of town. The owners Gianni's & Emmi are so lovely they make you feel like your at home. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone looking for accommodation in Mykonos

A small beautiful hotel where the owners make you feel at home. What we liked most about the hotel is the warmth it exuded. Giannis and his family go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable... We were offered lunch upon our late afternoon arrival which we relished as this was our first home cooked meal after two weeks of living out of a suitcase.

Location --The hotel is a seven minute walk to Mykonos town. There is a bus stop few paces from the hotel with a frequent bus service to all the beaches. There's also a supermarket right next to it. The hotel is only a 5-10 min drive to the port & airport and for a nominal cost of 5 euros per person Giannis can offer you a pick up & drop.

The only downside about our stay was that the air conditioning kept shutting off on its own (not on timer mode) but nothing serious enough to complain about. We also felt a bit overcharged for the lunch we had on our arrival - A plate of rice and a beef patty minus a side order or drinks was around 23 euros for 2 pax. A bit steep.. so it's best to check the rates first.

Overall -- With the exorbitant hotel prices in Mykonos we were pleasantly surprised with the cheap room rates Sourmeli has to offer. This garden hotel is one of the best in Mykonos simply because of its hospitality and the feeling of being at home when you are away from home :))

This hotel had been recommended by friends and after reviewing it on Trip Advisor we booked for a 14 night stay. Giannis collected us at the airport you know at once his welcome is guenuine and you are in good hands. The owners Giannis & Emmi welcomed us on arrival with a drink and a snack.

We were shown to our room, which was very clean and had all the essentials. We were lucky enough to be allocated a room which had a very large sunny balcony on the first floor. The rooms are equipped with a full fridge and if you like a drink in the morning just ask for a kettle and some cups. The room was cleaned to a high standard on a daily basis. The hotel has WiFi connection available throughout.

On the first evening Giannis asked us to have a complimentary drink and some nibbles including olives from his own garden, which are delicious.

The hotel is a short walk down a hill to the town, about ten minutes to the edge of town. The road is narrow and busy with no pavement and not too well light at night. A taxi is 5 euros and worth it for a quick safe journey home. Taxis are however few in number; The island only has just over 30 taxis, so you may have to wait at busy times, and be prepared to share with others.

The breakfast service is a low key affair they will do their best to accommodate any special requests. We had Greek salad a few times for lunch which is one of the best you will find with Giannis's own olive oil dressing.

There is a small but adequately stocked supermarket further up the hill from the hotel which stocks basis commoditise for every day needs.

One evening we had booked a table at an out of town restaurant, Giannis offered to take us, for which he would not accept payment. Just one off many offers of hospitality they gave us including figs and olives from the garden.

On a number of occasions we had drinks with the family. They offered us complimentary hors d’œuvre with the drinks, which were fresh and most inviting. They really did make you feel part of the family. Giannis, Emmi and their two adorable children, make you feel as if you are staying in their home rather than a hotel.

If you are looking for a small, friendly, good value, spotlessly clean and a hotel with a good location for the town look no further.

Thanks you Giannis, Emmi, we will be back. S & R.

I've been to Mykonos many times and always stayed at the same place, until I found Sourmeli. Now it's my new favorite and I can't wait to go back. The owners are very kind, place perfectly clean, has all you need, and you can walk to downtown. Peaceful, I slept so well there!!!!

This is a simple but pleasant hotel just outside the main town of Mykonos. The owners are extremely friendly, speak good English and run a very good taxi service to and from the airport and port, free of charge. They also provide breakfast and other food on request.There is a good bus service to beaches across the island from the stop near the hotel. The road into town is rather busy and lacks pavements but everything else is really good, especially the very reasonable prices.

It's no easy to describe the Marvellous hospitality that Family' Giannis reserve to us during our amazing stay. Since our arrival at this very nice garden hotel Giannis and his family made feel us as our own home. Dakos and good wine as a hearty welcome!
Very kindly, helpful and friendly person at everytime!
The hotel is just 2 mins by bike and 10 mins by walking so at one step from citycentre but without noise of it. The rooms are spacious, very quite and clean. All facilities included: air conditioning, tv, fridge, free wi-fi and very nice balcony.
Giannis guaranteed us best rate for rent a bike too and free pick up transfer from/to airport/port.
I'll never be tired to thanks that's amazing person!
