After arriving in Santorini we had some problems with our first hotel being overbooked and our tour operator sent us to Zannos. They told us that we would love it and that we would have the same conditions at our first hotel but it wasn't so. We had the junior suit and it was a good room but nothing special... More

This 200 years old building has been renovated and turned to a hotel. It is quite small but it offers outstanding service and kind of rare experience. You would not think there is such a tastfully decorated hotel on teh top of village. Pyrgos is not the most popular village on the island, however, it is spectacular and it offers... More

I knew this hotel before, for its spectacular look (and membership to Relais&Chateaux) but only this year I really checked-in. First best thing about is the location, one of the highest-situated in Santorini, hence the fabulous panoramic view that takes the breath away, literally, wherever you look. Second best thing is the building. An historical house, one of the few... More

We spent a week here in May 2013. Pyrgos is a typically Greek island whitewashed village. We were driven to the car park at the foot of the village and a porter with a donkey was waiting to escort us up to the hotel. Suitcases were loaded onto the donkey and up we climbed. Staff were very attentive and showed... More

Stayed here last year and had a great time, the service was excellent, and a walk around the surroundings of this secluded hotel showed a glimpse of the local life. Breakfast provided a great start to the day and when we asked for some extra croissants on one morning, the waiter said there wasn't any left however, 10 minutes later... More

We were taken a bit by surprise when the taxi dropped up off in a car park and porters picked up our bags and set off up the hill. There is no vehicular access to the hotel. The views from the top of the hill is however lovely. Our room was a cave which made it dark and the marble... More

Where do I start??? Ummm, the food is good. So our room was a cave that had no windows except in the door, not ideal really! It was so dark we had to ask for an extra lamp to be put in. This helped a bit. The shower, which is in the bath, had no curtain or door so the... More

We prefer small but interesting hotels and often use Relais & Chateaux hotels to find accommodation, this is a lovely building with a romantic history and great views but it is sadly let down by the level of service, whilst I appreciate its location is on a relaxed Greek island we were disappointed. The lack of attention to detail which... More
