Like staying with family...from euromitchell
Omiros sits within walking distance of the trendy little city where the shopping and nightlife are found. It is atop of the hill offering a beautiful view, however it was challenging for my wife to make the walk back while wearing heels after a hard night of drinking.
With all Mykonos offers, our trip would have not been nearly as memorable without Yiannis, the proprietor of Omiros. Yiannis is an extremely pleasant young man with an equally pleasant girlfriend. When we would wake up at a reasonable hour, either of them would serve us breakfast outside while we would chat (in perfect English) about any number of intriguing topics. We learned that his father started the hotel after selling the-now famous-Mykonos Bar.
Whatever our questions, desire, need, or request-Yiannis or his family was happy to respond. Staying at Omiros was not like staying in a Hotel, it felt like staying with extended family.

Omiros is a Secret Sanctuaryfrom HuntleyGuy
Yanni, the owner, picked us up from the ferry dock after a quick call to let him know when we were arriving. I think we may have awoken him, as our boat arrived around 9:30 AM. But there he was to greet us when we arrived and I knew we were in good hands. Yanni was full of energy and seemed as excited to see us as we were to see him, and finally be in Mykonos. After a 5-minute drive, we were at Omiros.
The hotel is nicely laid out, on the side of a hill with a beautiful view of the sea. The common areas have great views, so you can see the water and the town as you eat breakfast each morning.
The room was very nice, simple and clean, with the benefit of AC, a fridge and a TV. The washroom was newly renovated with wonderful aquamarine tiles. The bathroom mirror, hand-made with images of sea-creatures, was made by Yanni's girlfriend. Our room also had its own balcony area to sit and have a drink after a day at the beach.
The inn is a complete family affair, with Yanni's delightful mom serving breakfast (standard Continental), and his sister also around to chat with guests.
One of the bests advantages of staying at Omiros is the incredible sunset view. It just doesn't get any better. While others were rushing into town to find a great view, we had the best seat in the town.
Hotel Omiros is perfectly located just a 5-10 minute walk out of the main town. This means you are close enough to stumble home after a few beers, but far enough away to not have to worry about hearing the late-night party people.
We were in a good location to get to the beaches (a quick moto ride away), and Yanni was always helpful with information whenever we had questions.
This is a wonderful family-run inn, and when you stay here you really do feel like part of the family
King of hospitalityfrom "
We were in Mykonos in early July and paid less than 100 Euro per night which was the best bargain of our two week European vacation. Our room was completely remodeled and extremely clean with TV, AC, fridge, new doors, etc. The cleaning lady was really nice as well and the room would be made within an hour of our leaving so it was always clean.
Yannis (btw, his English is very good) was very helpful with restaurant recommendations, internet, phone chargers, how to get to the beach, etc. He even drove us back to the ferry for our departure and would not accept 1 Euro for it.
Mykonos was the highlight of our trip and Omiros hotel was a big part of it.
Omiros our secret havenfrom Evliya
When destiny first landed me in this simple, quaint hotel lying ambiguously on the border of town, I mistakenly believed her name was a random advertisement for vacant rooms. I should have remembered nothing is quite that random. Omiros is a reflection of the hotels philosophical owner 'Lolos' Yanni, the modern re-incarnation of the Greek philosopher in the body of a Mykonian fisherman, who helps the intrepid traveler discover the princess that he knows and loves so much.
Many of the young hormone-driven youths staying at the hotel tend to ignore the energy that this small haven freely spreads to its guests; don't make the same mistake absorb your surroundings. The word 'Hotel' may be an exaggeration in the material context for Omiros, as at first glance this unassuming lodge seems to offer little. The rooms, of which there are 10 are modern yet uncomplicated, with the simple amenities necessary to make your stay more comfortable. And well / this is just as well, since the creature comforts are sparce. Breakfast is Spartan at best, room service? - What’s that? A swimming pool? Who needs one? So what makes this place so special?
When you awake in the morning and sit at one of the four simple wooden tables for breakfast you are met by a lady with graying hair who smiles at you affectionately as if she new you since your childhood. This dear lady is Yanni's mother, and she will greet you in the same way every time your eyes meet, and will try her utmost to make your stay that more pleasant. Sipping your Greek coffee, you glance across from you table and are met with a sight truly worthy of the Gods, as the blue Aegean glimmers at you, and the illustrious Mykonian wind blows through your hair. So what's next to offer at Hotel Omiros? Well, this is where Yanni comes in. If there is anything worth seeing or doing on the Island he will guide with a genuine local smile. Truly, on this subject I need not say more, as you too will be left smiling after seeing the secluded beaches he dispatches you to, or the many tavernas that you cannot believe exist on this tourist-infested island.
As you stumble back from the beach burnt to the bone the Aegean surprises you again. I could hardly put together the words to describe the manifestation that the sea and sky present to you as the sun melts slowly into the sea. The best seats in the house are at Omiros, just sit there on the terrace and you will understand.
After you watch nature at her finest, it's probably time to hit the intertwining narrow streets of Mykonos, which are only a few minutes walk away. But, before you indulge yourself in the sins that this Mecca has to offer have a drink with Yanni at his small bar, from where the tiny kitchen's door couples as a drinks cabinet. Now, take heed in what I have to say, you will be drawn into his conversation, but don't try to compete with a Mykonian when it comes to drink or you will never make it into town!
Many times on my visits to Mykonos I have ran into characters that came to our princess for a short visit and ended up staying all summer, or even a lifetime, and I like to think Omiros has a little something to do with this. If my words tempt you to visit our little hotel in the sun, go with an open heart and take your imagination with you. Then you may be fortunate enough to join a club for the select few, but make sure not to tell everyone.
t want to share this secret!from happy2005
Everything about it was perfect:
Location - upon arrival at the old port, was a bit of an uphill climb to be honest especially since we were lugging around heavy luggage! And when we got there, Yiannis "scolded" us for not calling/emailing him earlier so he could pick us up at the port. But otherwise, quite convenient. Just a 10-minute walk to town, yet far enough not to be bothered by all the noise/traffic in town.
Rooms - am really finicky about bathrooms and cleanliness and was super relieved that our rooms were super clean. Decor was basic w/ a/c, small tv, stove, firm mattress, nice clean sheets. We had a 2-bedroom so the bathroom was quite big -- nice big tub, hot/cold shower w/ strong water pressure. Especially loved the mosaic tiles in the bathroom, which Yiannis said he handpicked himself. Turns out he just renovated the place late 2005. Make sure you ask for the room w/ a balcony.
There is a lounge area/office where you can read magazines, books on Mykonos, also has a plasma tv. Yiannis let us use his internet free of charge!
There is a breakfast area/bar where the guests usually hang around at all times so can sometimes be noisy for the rooms next to it.
Breakfast is included - they serve the usual breakfast fare of jam, honey, butter/margarine, bread, poundcake, coffee, orange juice. Also suggest walking to town for some variety.
Rates - very very reasonable. Can't complain.
But the best part of our stay were the people: Yiannis was so helpful and accomodating (ask him anything about Mykonos) in a very genuine manner. His mother (call her "Mama Yiannis") is so so sweet! Always giving extra servings of bread or another glass of orange juice. She reminded us of our grandmother back home.
I have stayed in the so many posh resorts in Asia, but Omiros Hotel is really a gem. We felt like we were staying at a friend's house rather than some generic/cookie cutter hotel. This hotel is so perfect for Mykonos and made our stay even more memorable. We were so sad to leave!
Great placefrom TwoCrews
If you walk 10 minutes in the oppposite direction you find a very quiet , free, almost unused beach with crystal clear water. Why waste your time being fried or fleeced on some of the eastern side beaches?
There are a small number of rooms so book in early. They're beautifully terraced in Mykonos style so that each room keeps it's privacy. Our room was super clean, with TV & great view. If there's a pleasant cooling summer breeze around, you'll catch it. Breakfast is terrific and sets you up for a day of exploring the island or just lazing around.
Couldn't be better!
Thanks Yiannis & Hotel Omiros.
Happy Aussie couple
excelent hotelfrom lprosdocimi
So happy with our stay at Omiros Hotel!from piccolita
Just a few key points:
ROOM: Spacious enough, really soft sheets and blankets (like new), fully functioning air-condition although not needed, good light from window,had a television, has a balcony (great to have a ciggie while admiring the view), meticulously cleaned everyday and really comfortable.
BATHROOM: Loved it! Very new. Had a tub, fixtures and cute mosaic tiles. Needless to say, it was so clean. Clearly, the owner pays attention to details.
BREAKFAST: (Don't get too excited) Regular European style breakfast of pound cake, bread, butter, jam, Orange Juice and Coffee. But the real plus is that the owner's (Yiannis') mom who served it herself oh so cheerfully, it just made your morning :-) She's so sweet.
LOCATION: Just a little bit off Mykonos town(5-10 minutes walk, depending on your pace), but I think this is a good thing. Staying in the town itself wouldve been a bit chaotic. Omiros is located in a peaceful area high enough to have a good view from the hotel, but not too high that you'd have to walk too much. ( Although it may be a good idea to rent a car if you would like to visit the many beaches of Mykonos, some of which are kinda hard to reach without car.)
VIBE: the hotel had a really nice vibe going, friendly atmosphere, the owners are such warm people, we felt so at home. It was our best hotel in Greece! I wish i could visit again (and again)!
OTHERS: There is a living area where there are some reading materials/magazines on Mykonos. This room also served as front desk/office. The owner was kind enough to let me check my mail without charge.
NOTE: Review dated June 6 is talking about another hotel, I think in Athens, judging by her description of the location

Top Local Tips for Mykonos
transport best time to go in my opinion is middle to late sep when most of the tourist have gone and transport is not so busy, and the weather is still good.(or beginning or mid June same applies )
Cosmo A small restaurant with a difference. Ony a limited menu but the cooking is special and the prices reasonable.
Getting around Rent a scooter or quad to have the most freedom getting around, but BE CAREFUL! They see their fair share of scooter accidents in the summertime. You can also get to different beaches by bus, especially if you stay near downtown.
