We stayed there for 3 nights at end of the September. The hotel is located in a very good location, just steps away from Fira's main street. The rooms are clean and decent sized. The hotel has a really good ocean/volcano view on it's roof. The owners are very welcoming. We had our wedding on the island and we received... More

Booked to stay here over 12 months in advance to secure what should have been a room with a view. We contacted Archontiko in Jan 2015 just to double check, and were told 'we don't have your booking just yet but don't worry we are holding a room for you (no mention however of a room in a totally different...

Fanis R, Γενικός Διευθυντής at Archontiko Santorini, responded to this review

Since is a long time when we receive this review, we would like to inform everyone about the real facts. 1. There was not a valid reservation from the guests. Reservation though travel agents without the agreement of the hotelier are illegal all around the world. It is very easy for anyone to understand that in order to characterize a... More

We loved the Archontiko Apartments. The room was beautifully decorated and the views from the property are simply amazing. My husband and I were traveling with our two small children, so having the extra space of the loft was great. The owner and his family are very friendly and helpful. We took a cab from the airport (short ride, but... More

These apartments have the best location you can have in Fira. With a beautiful view on the sea and caldera but a bit aside from the main crowd of tourists. You can enjoy the view, make pictures without being surrounded with hundreds of others. The rooms a very nicely furnished and decorated - our looked like brand new. One of... More

The apartment itself is decorated to the T - gorgeous. But how has no one mentioned the fact that you need to walk down a million stairs (with absolutely no help from the owner) with luggages and all?? Had I have known this, I would probably chose somewhere else. The owner was quite strange and always walking around outside. The... More

This place is wonderful! Located in the caldera cliffs, you wake up to an amazing view each day. The sunsets on the upstairs deck is breathtaking. The accommodations were perfect and very comfortable for our stay. The owner does live on the premise and is so nice and helpful. As a tip, if you can't find the hotel, it is... More

Pros: 1. If you're looking for the best place for sunset viewing in Fira, then it'd be the one. 2. The host is quite nice and helpful. Cons: 1. The hot water system is a bit inconvenient. The shower place is too small, so you might spill the water over the floor easily 2. Wifi is not stable 3. Ordinary... More

Archontiko is the most perfect little place, nestled among many hotels in the beautiful little town of Fira. When my wife and I walked in to our apartment we were instantly mesmerised by how tastefully done the place was. It was charming, spacious and cosy all at once. The hotel has been recently renovated and has 3 apartments - the... More
