Lovely hotel with lovely staff
Posted May 22, 2014
I would most definitely recommend Hotel Anatolia to travellers who don't want to be part of the big crowds in Mykonos Town itself, particularly during peak season. The ladies who run the hotel are so helpful and friendly, so you feel you can ask them anything. The pool and pool facilities are lovely so if you fancy a day or two by the pool, it's great. The rooms are very clean, with a fridge, nice and quiet, with a good shower and wet room. There is a tv but we never even had it on, so couldn't comment on that. Breakfast is basic -cereal, bread, jam and honey, cheeses and eggs, tea, coffee and orange drink. If anything could be improved about the hotel it would be the breakfast, maybe offering fresh fruit and pure juices.
The hotel is literally 5 minutes walk away from the little village of Ano Mera, where there is a square with several nice, good value restaurants. We ate there most nights, and for 2 starters, 2 mains, beer/wine and water it came to no more than €35 for both of us.
Ano Mera also has a pharmacy, supermarket, mini market, two great bakeries, an ATM and a monestery which is well worth seeing. There is a bus stop there, and also by the hotel itself, going into Mykonos, Elia beach and Kalafatis Beach. The bus times aren't great though, and seem to turn up whenever, so it's well worth hiring a car, which the hotel will help with.
You won't regret your stay here as long as you're happy with the peaceful location.
