This hotel offers outstanding and picturesque views of the Caldera and is located in the heart of Fira which is only steps from boutiques, restaurants, bars and a supermarket. We walked everywhere, there was no need for a car or cab. You get a patio with every room and can enjoy the famous santorini sunset right outside of your room.... More

My sister and I wanted to stay at the most decently priced hotel with a view while in Santorini, and Hotel Kavalari was it. Cute little cave like rooms, with a great view! The hotel provided breakfast every morning, and the staff at the front desk was great. Located at the best location in Fira, close to everything. Only downside... More

I stayed here with my wife last year and have to say I had a great time. This hotel is right in the heart of Fira. The views are absolutely amazing, although many other hotels have views just as good. The thing that made this hotel special was 1) the price which was very affordable compared to many other hotels... More

We stayed in June this year @ Kavalri. The people there were really friendly. We had the small room close to the reception. It weren't loud and the view from our windows was great. All the other rooms had small terrace.. But everyone can use the free places on all terraces... You have your breakfast with view to the big... More

Great location. 5 mins from bus stop. Friendly staff. Cute cave like rooms. Our room was clean and tidy. Our room was only 10ish steps from reception and had jaw dropping views. Surprisingly was not noisy as we were quite close to main footpath. Such a great spot for taking photos of the sunset. Breakfast was delicious. The man must... More

My wife and I just returned from a trip to Greece encompassing (in order) Santorini, Mykonos (Delos) and Athens. After my experience at Kavalari in the first 48 hours I was seriously considering just flying back home, but I’m glad I didn’t since Mykonos and Athens were pretty astoundingly awesome. So…our arrival at the Santorini airport was at 6:15 AM... More

We spent 3 nights at the Kavalari Hotel in September 2013. We choose this location as we wanted to be right on the Caldera and the views did not disappoint. The location and views were second to none. The front desk staff were more than accommodating in assisting us in getting a room with not too many stairs involved. Because... More

Our cave room was exactly what we were looking for in Fira, with outstanding views of the Caldera, great reception staff with amazing recommendations for food and a quiet experience. Surprisingly very quiet in such a busy and central location, I was impressed with the personal experience we received. The breakfast was amazing on the terrace! I could not think... More

This was my second stay at the Hotel Kavalari. The first was in 2005. I returned because (1) you cannot beat the view, (2) the owners and staff are such nice people - they really went out of their way to make sure I had the best possible experience, and they did so again, (3) the location is perfect for...
