So I came here with my friend and for the price it was reasonable and didn't have much to complain about for a basic hotel. It was very windy but hot so we wanted the doors open and therefore took down a hook up photo above the bed and just rested it against the wall. The next day once the cleaner had visited and put it back up we were passing reception and was called to the desk. The woman was sooo rude about the fact we had removed the painting from the wall and spoke to us like children very patronisingly telling us to be more considerate!! The painting wasn't nice anyway lol but we were obviously going to return the photo to the wall. She acted as if we were stealing an original Picasso! Stupid rude woman shouldn't work there and was cold and jealous from when me and my friend first arrived there

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.

We were not expecting to be so far from anything. You could see the sea at Ornos where there was beach but needed 2 buses to get there. Receptionist very helpful but keen to tell us about all the beaches except the closes ones. Buses regular into town or Platys Gialos and only 1.80 euros each way. We found some nice beaches at Platys Gialos with some lovely restaurants but found sunbeds a bit steep - 18 -20 euros for 2 bed and a parasol. We arrived late in afternoon so stayed at hotel for meal first night but were the only ones eating there - limited choice and pricey. Breakfasts were ok. The pool was nice but sunbeds very hard and no cushions. Beds were very hard and we were given room next to boiler room which was noisy all night. Definitely not 4 star and would not go back.

6 of us stayed here last week - we were searching the island for a wedding venue so just needed a base - however this little hotel was fantastic - we had a larger room and two smaller twin rooms, all sharing an upper terrace, which was great as we had two teenagers to keep an eye on, the reception staff were faultless - went over and above for us the whole time, the pool area is spotless and new sunloungers, pool was really warm by midday, there appear to be poolside rooms which may be even better - the rooms all had fridges and small freezer shelf for ice - no kettle, bathrooms and room decor was older style mahogany furniture but spotless (with hairdryers) and very, very good maid service. The only complaint i would say is the breakfast wasn't fantastic but adequate - cold buffet pastries and cereal were fine but the hot food was same every day just frankfurter sausages, bacon and a greek veggie mix, however I do like a full english fry up, so my fault, it is no doubt typically greek! We ended up spending more time at the hotel and pool than expected due to the relaxed, off the main track quiet location, also a really good quad/moped hire company at entrance - discounted for guests. 30 euros per quad per day. Would 110% recccommed for the price we paid! Will return. Thanks Giannoulaki staff - you made our holiday!

This hotel was absolutely spotless, the staff were amazing, the receptionist even better, the lady was so helpful, she was brilliant, she advised us on places to eat and recommended some fab places, which made mine and my 13 year old daughters holiday even more special.

Very clean, modern, very friendly staff. Definitely 4star hotel. No kettle. Just least you can keep drinks cold. Some reviews are bad, we don't know why. You take a bus or car hire to go to any places or beaches. Car around €40 per day. Better to book from the UK.

Giannoulaki Hotel I thought was very nice. The staff we very friendly, the pool setting was nice and it was perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday, no children or loud parties; however the rooms were quite basic, no tea of coffee making facilities or cutlery what so ever only two tiny glasses. The beds were very hard so not good if you have a bad back and it is also located close to a very busy road with no pavements. It was very much central between a beach and Mykonos town where you could either walk to and risk the busy traffic or catch a bus, which on occasions would drive past your stop making you have to walk back (you had to rely on the bus driver remembering where your stop is and you). Overall we did have a lovely time. Mykonos town itself is lovely and there are plenty of restaurants there.

Great hotel with a nice bar/pool area and such friendly and welcoming staff. The hotel is in the perfect location between beaches and the main city with a frequent bus service. We had such a good time here and would definitely return!
