Located on a quiet side-street south of the main square. A small but intimate hotel with a small pool. Rooms are spacious, consisting of a kitchen and balcony. Staff and service is satisfying. Location: About 2 blocks from the main square.

The hotel is in a quiet little lane but still super close to the action of the centre. The staff were friendly and helpful, booking tours and giving us other useful info! Room was small but not cramped and having the luxury of being able to cook (not that we used it) was a great option. The rooms were cleaned... More

Hostel was well priced, nice pool although it was small. Room had separate kitchen, which was convenient for backpackers like us. Clean rooms and our own TV. Nice reception area and friendly staff. Very good stay and would definitely stay again.

We enjoyed this very clean, clear and quiet studio and the swimming pool. The owner Dimitri is very helpful. Well situated just outside the center but five minutes walk from the caldera. Highly recommended!!

The markakis studios in fira town is located at about 2-3 mins walk from the main fira lane. One can easily find grocery shops, car rentals, restaurants at very close distances. This hotel would suit people who are coming on a tight budget but are keen to cover the island well. The property offers great value for money with its... More

The only regret we left with was that we spent only one night here! Our room overlooked the small, but lovely pool. We don't really have the time to spend in the pool, but the white walls, blue furniture with overhanging bougainvilleas made for a perfect spot for pictures! :) The room itself was airy and spacious and more than...

Stayed here for a week mid-October. This is for sure value for money. Bed is seperate from a little dining room with a hob and fridge. Things are a little old school but that is of no worry. Literally 5min max walk to everything in Fira including callers views. What really made the stay was the man in charge. We... More

Furthermore, it is located a few minutes walk (2-5') from all the touristic facilities, restaurants, supermarkets, bus station and... More

I almost don't want to review Markakis Studios so that its price won't have shot up by our next visit to Santorini. I think this was the best value hotel room I've ever had. It is located a few blocks down from the pedestrianized main tourist complex, no more than a 5 or 6 minute walk to reach the top... More

Stayed for 2 nights at markakis, was a great place with good location about 7 min walk into town. Friendly staff and pool included. Added bonus was the fridge and cooking utensil. Shower and toilet were clean and functioning. Over all 7-8/10
