YOU CAN'T BEAT THE PRICE

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 24, 2010



I can assure you I paid less for this fantastic place than the rates on their won website. Markakis Studios is on a quiet side-street just south of the main square. In fact it’s next door to a car park that is only used during the day. Quiet, peaceful, yet a very short walk to all the noise.

This is a small, but intimate hotel. Its small pool is just right for its size. The rooms are large and actually consist of a kitchen, corridor, bathroom, bedroom and a balcony. Not bad for less than 50 Euros. They also give you plenty of closet/storage space.

The staff are very nice, clean the room everyday and make you feel welcome. You can even keep your room up to 6 pm on departure day for 20 Euros. They have a nice lobby that even has a shower if you need to hang out before going to the airport. Just 2 doors away is a fantastic grocery store run my Stelios. This store sells everything cheaper than the other stores in town. You are less than 2 blocks from the main square and the Caldera Views. You simply cannot do better than here for the combination of price, facilities and location.

Unique Quality:

Each ‘room’ or apartment has:

• Kitchen with dinning table and a good-sized fridge that works very well
• It’s own balcony, some with flowers
• Lots of closet/storage space
• Shower
• Remote control TV
• Remote control Air-conditioning
• Desk, chairs, hooks, mirrors
• Quiet at night. Every night.

The only downside is that the beds are very firm.

Directions: 80 Meters from the Main Square

I Could Live Here!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 1, 2006

Studios Markakis is a small self-catering complex just off the main square in Fira with its own swimming pool, reception facilities and a bar. Each individual studio has its own fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom and balcony, as well as obviously a bedroom, with television and phone and are fully air-conditioned.

Whilst the location is perhaps not the best regarding views, being down a side street, the rooms are immaculate and comfortable and within a few minutes walk from the town centre. I only stayed here one night but had I been here for a while this is the sort of place which would have suited me down to the ground. In fact it will be first on my list for Euromeet2007!

Unique Quality: All in all this is a tidy little place, friendly managers and if you are doing the self-catering bit there is a mini-supermarket on the corner less than 2 minutes walk. The pool area looked quite inviting too.

One little thing - if you do decide to stay here the reception isn't actually where the sign says it is but the next door down!

Directions: 150 m from the square, just down the side street where the mini-supermarket is.
