      Historical Traveler Reviews Elysium Hotel Mykonos Town

      Loves the Elysium!

      from

      Stayed four nights end of May. The hotel was spotless, the terrace beautiful and the bar was enjoyable. The staff of the hotel could not be more accommodating. The staff were very helpful in suggesting shops and restaurants. Mentioned to the concierge we would be interested in an excursion to Delos. Before we knew it he had the whole day trip arranged for us. Cannot say enough about the Elysium--will definitely return!

      Don't Book this Hotel

      from

      We booked this hotel in November, 2004. We were traveling on a cruise for July 2005 and had added this hotel for 2 days at the completion of the crusie. On June 24th (just a few short weeks before our departure) they e-mailed me and said they were cancelling my reservation, without explanation, and would not even offer to assist in booking another hotel. My phone calls and email to the owner were answered rudely and with no assistance whatsoever. They even had the nerve to tell me to stop by and have a drink since a cruise would be in town. Warning - this could happen to you. Book another hotel that really cares about its guests and its reputation.

      Excellent:I love the Elysium

      from

      Love the services, and the ocean veiws. The music and setting at the pool is a great way to spend an afternoon. The sunset parties are fantastic! The drink prices however are a bit overly priced, Which is a bit of a draw back. Rent a scotter to make the treak up and down the hill to town.

      False Advertising

      from

      FALSE advertising and the worst costumer service. I booked a room for 4 people at great rate, (at least that's what I thought). Upon arrival we were told they only had room for 2 and it would be double the rate. According to them, the room I booked online doesn't exist and the rate is non-existing. I was upset at this point but willing to wait for the manager and possibly negotiate between what my online itinerary detailed and what was available at the hotel. After thinking about our budget and not knowing if they would be able to accommodate all 4 of us, we realized we should find another hotel. When we expressed this idea to the front desk manager, we were told off in Greek in very explicit vulgar words, which brought some of us to tears. Threats of jail and fines were thrown at us because we insisted on leaving the hotel immediately. In a very unprofessional way, a show was put on in the lobby for all the guest to see. We left and had to hike down the hill just to find a cab and stayed at a fabulous hotel by the port at a much lower rate.

      A Gay Paradise

      from

      The Elysium was a wonderful place to relax and meet cute gay men from all over the world. If you're looking for a place where you can lounge by a pool surrounded by beautiful (some naked) people while hot cabana boys serve you cocktails, then this is the place for you. The food served at the pool-side bar is very good and the sunsets are an unforgettable almost glamorous experience. The beds could have been more comfortable, but rooms were well appointed. The people at the front desk were very knowledgeable about the best places to see and eat on the island.

      Wonderful, Marvellous!!!

      from

      We were looking for a nice gay friendly hotel and this was it! Although the trek up the hill was a bit difficult after a night out on the town, the hotel was a delight. The room was great, the cleaning lady we had was very efficient and always knew when we were sleeping in until 3 or 4pm so we were never bothered. The bar staff were incredible and friendly...and made our stay very enjoyable. The owner of the bar (different from the owner of the hotel) was an amazing guy. Very, very helpful and warm. He took the time to point out the "must see's" and the traps. Thank you!

      The sunsets from this hotel are incredible!!! Folks from the nearby hotels (straight and gay) congregate nightly to wittness the spectacle!

      We met lots of people who told us we were lucky to be staying in such a nice hotel with such an incredible view. Sure its on a hill, but when the temperatures soar into the 40's trust me, its nice to be up so high because there's always a nice breeze!

      The food at the bar restaurant is wonderful and the prices are very reasonable. However, the breakfast (if you are ever up so early) is terrible. Its the same old fare, morning aftere morning and its a shame that with the price of the hotel that it cannot provide better fare for breakfast.

      All in all I will definitely be returning to this hotel as it's friendly atmosphere is fantastic!!!! Good job Vascilli and Stravos!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Overpriced

      from

      Much better hotels on Island! When you are walking up the very steep hill to this hotel you forget you are on vacation. Hotel is overpriced and the only time it is remotely fun is the sunset happy hour. Air conditioning is available but good luck keeping your room cool. Agree with previous reviewer; it is not what is advertised. Eddie and Tim

      Disappointing

      from

      Not what was advertised. We got the two room "suite" -- two rooms (one without windows) and a small entryway. (When we requested a room change, we were told that the hotel was full.) Our view (and that of several other rooms) was obscured by the concrete frame of a building under construction. The hike up the hill from town is the worst aspect of the experience. Get a scooter or plan on spending most of your time at the hotel. The food and pool are nice, and the staff was generally pleasant, but overall my friends and I were disappointed with the experience.

      Incredible

      from

      Went to Mykonos for a birthday celebration. What a great experience. The hotel staff were wonderful in making our stay one of the best I've have before. Once you get over the "hill" you experience the best view in town. The sunsets out on the veranda are incredible. The bar staff were on top of our taste in drinks. It is the place to stay when in Mykonos.

      Paradise

      from

      The overall experience was amazing. Vasili, the owner of the hotel made us feel like royalty-- as if we were guests in his palace. The service was excellent, the food at the pool bar was amazing. The "happy hour" sunset parties was the hang out for all of the "beautiful people" on the island. Very gay environment-- colorful, flamboyant queens floating around, hot muscle boys everywhere-- overall amazing!

      The view from the ship of traditional white houses with blue trim was unmistakeable Greek! We took a water taxi from the ship to Mykonos to walk around town and enjoy the picture-postcard views. The weather was slightly warmer than yesterday and we enjoyed a rain-free day. The sun actually shone brightly this ...

      ... but with the wind stronger than the day before and the sky looking rather bleak we were not too fussed. The fact that we had seen little of the island didn't overly play on our minds as we had used the time to relax and plan the next month of our trip in addition I think that we were a bit depleted when it came to caring about ruins, churches and temples.
      So it was off to the port where the real Greek adventure began.

The location we had and the view were both amazing, opening our door onto our private balcony that looked over the pool surrounding buildings all the way to the sparkling blue water.The various hotels and houses with their blue domes and shutters on blinding whitewash walls were just like the pictures and the visions that had been playing about in our heads.Our first stop from the hotel was the very short walk down the hill to the beach, given the time of year that we ...

      Having recovered from our quad biking yesterday and remembering the sore nether regions, a bus seemed like a good option today. Travelled into Mykonos town and spent several hours walking the narrow winding streets full of shops peddling tourist souvenirs, jewellery and designer goods. With the wind blowing strongly we eventually made our way to the foreshore and the area they call Little Venice! They have very vivid imaginations and have probably never been to Venice or ...

I was actually enjoying the rock-and-roll feeling of staying in bed, and slept a bit longer. Finally I got up after catching some air in bed - yes, it was that rollicking - I went upstairs. It looked like a trauma ward.

      Catherine was on the couch lying down. Sam and Sam Jackson were lying on the ...
