Where to stay in Mykonos

mykonos-hotelsMykonos has a wide range of holiday accommodation from luxury hotels with all conceivable mod cons through to basic family run pensions and self-catering apartments.

There are so many options available that you’ll probably secure some kind of room even if you turn up in high season without a reservation.

But if you’re fussy about price and location make sure you book well in advance because the best places are snapped up months ahead of the summer tourist invasion.

If you arrive here by ferry you’ll be greeted by an over-enthusiastic mob of domatia owners anxious to yank you into a waiting minibus.

If you don’t already have a reservation you might just have to take pot luck but don’t commit yourself until you’ve checked out the room, price and facilities.

Some owners will try to get away with charging you for transport from the ferry port to their accommodation even if you subsequently decide you don’t want it.

It’s important to familiarise yourself a little with the island before you decide where to stay. Much of the accommodation is centred in and around Mykonos Town but if you actually want to sleep at night you’ll be better off staying on the outskirts or even further afield.

The town’s narrow alleyways are chock-a-block with cheap pension-style hotels and dolmatia (rooms to let) – some quaint and full of character, others run-down and rather shabby looking.

There are plenty of mid-range hotels and self-catering apartments to choose from on the roads leading to the north and south of the town, many with sea views and swimming pools.

If you’re not planning to rent a car or moped, check how far your chosen hotel is in terms of walking distance from the town especially if you want to be within easy reach of the local nightlife.
