A nice old historical hotel that has its one charm. Hotel staff are very courteous and handle the COVID pandemic well. Stayed here for 8 nights, room is very comfortable with good WIFI, comfortable bed, good selection of channels on TV if you fancy a night in, nice size deep pool with comfortable sun loungers.

We just got home today from a five day trip to beautiful Mýkonos,Myself and my husband stayed at Despotiko Hotel for four nights five days on our first child free holiday - I cannot tell you how immaculately clean this place is,we had a lovely room at the side of the pool with seating area outside,twin beds which wasn’t a problem for us they were pushed together they were very comfortable,a sofa,flat screen tv and a very clean and modern shower room also a closet for our clothes.We had clean towels and new Shampoo,shower gel,toilet roll everyday,bins emptied daily,beds made daily,our cleaning lady was so lovely .There is a mini bar in the room but we didn’t drink any of the contents as there is a charge for each drink we just put them to the side and went to the local mini market and bought our own milk,water etc,there is also a kettle in the room.I phoned and ask reception for an iron and ironing board this was brought to the room straight away.We didn’t eat at the hotel as we were room only so ate out everyday,but we met a lovely couple whilst we were there and they said breakfast was great.We had a very late flight so for an extra 30 euro we had our room until 7.30pm.The hotel is literally a 2 minute walk down into the town I know previous reviews have said the hill is steep walking back up and I do agree but for us as a couple in our mid 30s this wasn’t a problem.Theres lots of places to eat and drink but prices are quite steep in Mýkonos compared to other holidays we have been on.The pool side is so chilled and quiet beds so comfy just the atmosphere we wanted as we didn’t have our children with us.We hired a quad for the day for 30 euro and we went exploring and beach hopping which I would recommend as we got to see some beautiful places and paradise beach is definitely worth a visit,there is plenty to see and do in Mykonos-Town but we wanted to go further afield on the island which you do need transport for.One thing I will say is the hotel is literally five minutes from the airport and the taxi cost us 15 euro which we thought was day light robbery.But as for Mykonos town,beaches,shops it’s just so beautiful and everywhere you look there’s a photo opportunity.A big Thankyou to Despotiko Hotel for making our first child free holiday one to remember.

This former bishop's mansion turned into a hotel is situated about a 5 min. walk up a rather steep hill without any sidewalks found. So, be aware of the many buses, cars, ATVs and bikes the are quick to drive past as you go up and down. The busy and beautiful Mykonos Town greets you after the journey down the hill and worth every minute. There are many restaurants, shops, and of course, the famous sites-- the windmills for one... Enjoy your visit to this famous island and stay here. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Each morning (right at 8 am) you are offered fresh assortment foods, pastries, and meats to enjoy in the dining area. Don't forget to check out the pool area and sitting area just off the front entrance. The staff is every so accommodating and even offers a little bar service. Highly recommended for your next stay in Mykonos!

Despotiko Hotel was one of the best places we've stayed on our 11-day tour of Athens, Santorini and Mykonos. The rooms are comfortable and up to date, with the best shower situation I've had in a while and balconies with beautiful views. Hotel management here is friendly, helpful and accommodating.

One of the best things about the hotel is its location: It's just a 5- to 10-minute walk into Mykonos Town, where you'll stroll through a picturesque labyrinth of white-washed buildings with colorful shutters, doors and balconies. There is a plethora of restaurants, bars and shops to choose from here (make sure to always check menu prices before sitting down — you'd be shocked), and you'll also find bus stations for transport to various parts of the island.

I noticed a few reviews of this place mentioned the uphill hike back to the restaurant as a downside — it honestly didn't bother me, but I could see it being a potential challenge for those with multiple kids or older folks.

The pool is stunning and offers comfortable lounge chairs and a mini bar. A decent breakfast is served every morning (spanakopita is always offered!), though the hotel doesn't have an actual restaurant, so you're on your own for lunch and dinner.

This hotel is a gem. It is on a hill overlooking the town. The view from our room included the sea, the town & the windmills. . The breakfast was very good, with plenty to choose from. Atmosphere was great. Pool & courtyard were very clean. I'd stay here again with it's friendly staff & cleanliness.
