My husband and I finally arrived at Lava at 1am after a long flight delay and some confusion over who was meeting us to take us to the hotel which resulted in feeling tired and a little irritated. As an apology for the misunderstanding we were given a bottle of wine and some fresh fruit which was a lovely touch.... More

This is located on the Fira caldera with amazing views down to the ocean and the volcano. Great breakfast served on the upper balcony, small pool to cool off in, really friendly and helpful staff. Close enough to be convenient and far enough away from the main part of town to provide some serenity when the cruise boats come in.

I can't say enough wonderful things about the location and the staff at Lava. I traveled there about 2 weeks ago with 3 other friends. Our transfer from the airport took us to the wrong hotel. Apparently, there is a Lava Hotel in Oia. Stavroula is the best! She had actually called the other hotel looking for us since we... More

The location is great. The rooms are beautiful with large spaces. Breakfast is very good and the view amazing. Not so expensive like other similar hotels. Very quiet, but without many facilities and services. This hotel is a very good choice to stay in Santorini

Santorini has of course something special. And to sleep at the top of Fira, with a view on the bay and on the city is just amazing. Lava Suites is a boutique hotel with a lot of charm, extremely well located (on the corniche, 10 min walks from the central plaza). The rooms are "basics" and not well isolated but... More

We stayed in an Executive Room in the Lava Suites Fira end June. Our accommodation was basic with a rustic charm however the view of the Caldera over breakfast made up for this. It was quite a steep walk up from Fira town centre but only 6 minutes walk back down. Car park was 2 minutes walk. Our accommodation was... More

My husband and I stayed at Lava Suites for 3 days. Our stay was fantastic. The service was phenomenal and we were in a great location. On arrival, the hotel picked us up. We were able to get a tour of the hotel and settle in. After settling in, the staff showed us a map of the island and got... More

Place had the most amazing views. I can't remember the name of my suite but it was the "superior double" in the management photos section. Quaint, antique style hotel, with a loft style room, pretty cool for Greece. Sadly no separate double beds, more like a queen size mattress, not sure how that's a "double" however, who comes to Santorini... More

Book the master suite if you have the possibility! Why? Because I am pretty sure you can’t find a better place to stay in Fira. Yes, it is rather expensive, but for the money you get: - The best view from a hotel room in town - Your own, private huge balcony with your own jaquzzi - A fantastic breakfast... More

Stayed at Lava June 1-3rd and my experience with this hotel was magnificent. I stayed in the Serenity suite which was absolutely beautiful. Coupled with the service, the location and easy access to shopping, restaurants, and transportation - it made my trip to Santorini amazing. I plan on visiting again next year and I will ask for the same suite... More
