Hotel Daedalus4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Daedalus hotel is located 4-5 min walking of center of Fira which is great location. Across the street you have free parking if you have rented a car which is very convenient when you are at central location. Staff was very nice and helpful. When we arrive at hotel with our friends (about 7 p.m.) it was told to us that, double room with free cancellation I had reserved on Booking.com, is actually already full. Only the room for our friends (couple) was available. Luckily they had one double room for that night. Next day I was forced to search for another hotel. But for that one night at Daedalus hotel the room was nice and clean but a little bit small for my opinion. Daedalus Hotel have a very beautiful yard with big pool and a lot of palm trees. Staff is very friendly and they also try very hard to find us new accommodation in another hotel. Breakfast was great also. Despite the little room our balcony was oriented to east with sea view, and with one of the most beautiful sunrise view I have ever seen.
We stayed at the Daedalus for one night between our flight to Santorini and our ferry to Folegandros in the morning. The room was spacious and clean, with the exception of a few dead moths on the floor. The staff were all very friendly. Also, the hotel is just a few minutes walk from the buzz of Fira and, of course, the stunning Caldera. Ours was a flying visit but I'd definitely recommend the hotel if you're looking for a place in busy Fira.
We stayed at Daedalus hotel.The location was very close to the main fira centre and very convenient.The room was comfortable..clean bathroom.. helpful reception staff.. Breakfast was good with variety of freshly baked bakery... homemade jams etc...All thanks to a wonderful lady called MARIA..who was in charge of the kitchen...she was ever smiling and willing serve..she very kindly even packed some eats as we were heading back to Athens very early...thank you Maria !!!! These gestures leave lovely memories ! On the whole a good experience !
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights/3 days. The staff were superb. So helpful and friendly. We arrived at 8am and were offered breakfast immediately. The selection was great. Something for everyone. Staff were always on hand to give advice and recommendations around the island. Also arranged taxis etc. All staff including maintenance and cleaners were always very friendly. We were able to check in early, around 10am. Rooms were very clean and finished to a lovely standard. Pool area was clean with towels available at the pool bar. Location wise you couldn't asked for much more. Main streets/centre were only 5 mins walking as was the bus station. If you are staying in Fira this is one hotel to definitely consider. If we visit Santorini again we will be going back to Deadalus Hotel.
Im guessing based on my experience the hotel might have upgraded and updated since some of these previous reviews were posted, because I did not have a single issue with my stay at this location. My room was perfect for a solo traveler as myself. Extremely comfortable and clean. I thought the nightly turn down service was adorable and enjoyed the candy left on my pillows. My room was located on the lower floors, and the pool was right outside my door. The hotel staff was kind, courteous, and always willing to help or assist with suggestions. The hotel itself is located, in my opinion in the perfect spot. Right across from a green market and cafe, and within walking distance to all the restaurants and shops your hearts desire. Even though the hotel offers complimentary breakfast I never once got out of bed early enough to enjoy it.
The location is optimal. Near the center of Fira, within a short walking distance from Caldera, with a public parking across the street. The staff was very kind and helpful. Breakfast was very good. The swimming pool and the garden also very nice. Minus: our room was very comfortable but some other persons in the party had small rooms. There was some noise during the night as the hotel is on a main street of Fira with a lot of traffic. The windows had no mosquito-sheets.
Beautiful pool area, great breakfast, good location, friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay here,esp. being within short walking distance to the iconic Santorini vistas, shops and restaurants. Would go back in a second.
Excellent location, beautiful pool with modern sunbeds, close to shops and restaurants. Clean rooms, polite cleaning staff. On the negative side, no view to the Caldera, poor customer service at the reception, the front desk completely ignored us, the bathroom in our room needed some renovation but nothing excessive. Overpriced but expected for a tourist destination like Santorini. However I would not return to this hotel.
The location of the hotel is very convenient, only a short walk away from the main part of Fira. The room was fairly nice, although the bathroom was a little bit small, and the shower was awkward. The two things that I did not like was the fact there was not a restaurant attached with the hotel, and there was no shuttle from the port or airport, unlike some other hotels. Overall though, the hotel was a pleasant stay and very nice.
The location of the hotel is very convenient to the center of town. That is the only good thing about this place. Actually another good thing is breakfast. The nice lady cooked nice eggs in the morning. However, I would say that customer service is lacking here and the rooms are left to be desired. They are not super helpful at the front desk or the pool except for the man at the front desk - he was friendly and helpful. Everyone else is rude and doesn't seem to want to help you at all and if you ask for a towel for the pool, it's like they don't know what they are talking about. For an island that is geared towards tourists they should train their front desk and the pool guy to treat their customers better. I won't be staying here again if I return to Santorini.
