Aesthetically, this place looks good! It's clean and painted on the outside with a pleasant pool area. But that is where it stops!! The rooms desperately need a complete overhaul as they are still in the 80's. Our room was a decent size, but very very basic and soulless. Simple re paint and a few personal touches could transform the rooms. The bathroom was shocking. At least 20yrs old, with an old jacuzzi (probably non functioning) bath complete with detachable shower hose that was loose fitting and hanging and swinging off the wall. The shower carousel was old, smelly and sticks to your body as you try to get clean. Air con just about works, but don't be surprised if it just packs up on you. The whole room so antiquated and such a disappointment. Breakfast is perhaps the most basic meal in any hotel/apartment We've ever experienced. So much so, we only ate it on our first morning out of 3. Again, shocking and such poor food. Make sure you don't have room 25! It's right next door to the kitchen so woken early with noise and constant phone conversations on your doorstep. Best part of this establishment is the pool area! It's such a great shame that the rooms/food are in no way to the same standard! Sympathetic attention to these areas would dramatically change the paying customer experience and willingness to return or refer. I'm afraid, we shall not be doing either unless a complete overhaul is imminent. Location is superb and local transport great. But the bedrooms and food leave this place somewhere to avoid when thinking of staying in Mykonos.
I truly wonder about some of the reviews here. There was nothing wrong with this place at all. The complaints about the wieners at breakfast are are bit over the top, they had eggs and other items, lets not drone over one item please. The pool is nice, the bar service is good, the staff are pleasant and helpful. Its a great location if you want to be just slightly out of the night life and its close to the airport. There's a really nice restaurant just up the path called Andreas & Maria, a small supermarket and the bus stop.
My first visit to Mykonos and I'm glad i stayed here to enjoy it. It was a very quiet hotel which i liked; the pool was quiet too. It was clean and the staff were very friendly. Accommodating all our requirements. It is out of the way from the town so id recommend transport hiring. I'd definitely return.Thank you
We have just returned from this hotel and while I don't usually do reviews feel must as the reviews I read were poor but we found staff caring and extremely helpful always smiling room fine but perhaps tea making facilities may be bonus pool excellent everywhere spotless easy access by local bus to town or beach so disagree with all previous poor comments would definitely recommend this hotel to friends
I wanted to write a review after being very nervous about staying at this hotel after reading other reviews on here, prior to my holiday. It was a great hotel with a lovely pool area and restuarant. The hotel was very clean and our room was very spacious with good AC. All staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was right next to a bus stop which took you to the beach or to mykonos town every 30 mins which was very useful and very cheap! The only disadvantages about staying here was that the shower in our room was poor quality and the breakfast was very basic. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
We arrived late evening to a very friendly welcome. I was a little apprehensive after reading some of the reviews. The reception area was clean and always staffed by staff only too happy to help. We stayed in room 46 located away from main reception,after ground floor room with a nice spacious bathroom, living room area and bedroom with ample wardrobe space. We also had a terrace area which we made the most of. A rustic view and so peaceful. We stocked the fridge and made the most of the peace and quiet away from mykonos town. The pool area is spotless, lovely pool with ample loungers. A small bar and snack bar and very friendly staff. Breakfast was simple but adequate croissants,preserves,eggs,frankfurters,fresh fruit and cereal.
Felt the need to write a review for this hotel as I had such a good time and the reviews for the hotel aren't too good recently. The staff were absolutely lovely and helpful when it came to excursions. The reception lady was so lovely and was able to book us a boat trip and although the first boat trip was cancelled she managed to book another for us. The staff at Noo Noos were so lovely and catered for us in every way. Not once were the staff rude or ignore anything we asked for. The maids were a bit questionable as they took away our card (for the electricity) which we had left in to keep our room cool with the AC. However, reception gave us another for the time being and the maids gave it back the following day. Apart from this the room was cleaned everyday with new bedsheets, new bin liner in the toilet and fresh towels and shower mat. The rooms were rather big and the beds were comfortable. Although the "double bed" was two singles put together this wasn't too much of a problem except it did slide apart a tiny bit in the night. Also no bin for the main room, we had to use a spare bag for any rubbish we had because the toilet bin was too small for extra rubbish. The room we had was situated right next to the pool and it was silent for us to sleep at night and no noise woke us up in the morning which was fab. The breakfast wasn't the best, the only hot food were scrambled eggs, mini hot dog sausages and mini potatoes which wasn't ideal for me however my partner thought it was delicious. I had jam on toast all week which was nice but more of a variety would have been better. The location of the hotel couldn't have been better, 5 minute bus ride to town or the closest beach which was about €1.80 (I think?) or a 20 minute walk to town. There is a supermarket right next to the hotel as well as two little restaurants/cafes and a pharmacy is there also.
Without a doubt the worst hotel in MYkonos. Never stay at this hotel. The service is terrible, the attendants are rude and unprepared. I made a reservation 2 months in advance, I left the reservation paid in a triple room, and upon arriving to checkin, the attendant said they did not have rooms available, or we would have to stay in a double or refund the money, being that we were with children. We stayed in the double. When we woke up the next day we were informed that we would have to leave the double because someone else would have to reserve it and change it to another triple, but to do so wait until 14:00 to free a room with our bags at the reception. Hotel horrible, the cafe is bad. The shameful room, small bathroom and bad shower. The location is awful. At the checkout, they wanted to charge us extra fees for the room change, with a taxi driver waiting, they did not want to release, when we refused to pay, they charged half the rate and we had to pay the taxi driver 15 more for the time stopped. Never stay at this hotel. The photos do not match the reality of the hotel.
superbad beds and stupidly all rooms were equipped that way - no shadow on terrace or pool - disgusting breakfast -uneasy steps to reach reception -,no manager on duty during total stay - overpriced deal
I would like to start by saying that the pool area was lovely and very clean. Prices for food was pricey as others have commented with limited options on the menu. The rooms are bad, they have a strong moldy smell and the A/C units are very bad. We had two rooms and both rooms had poorly functioning units. It was so hot that you could not sleep. This is not a four start Hotel and I travel through Europe a great deal. It is also far from other attractions on the island but that was not an issue for us. There are less than 35 taxis on the island so they jack up the prices but the bus does offer another transportation option. It is just hard to get a taxi. I will visit Mykonos but I would never stay at this hotel again. The shower curtain...there are no words to describe how cheap the shower curtain was and it did not completely close. We were very disappointed.
