Can't say enough about George and his staff. Locals working in the restaurants all knew George and said the island would be much better if everyone delivered the level of service that he does. Trust me, he will change your vacation. Location is prime, so close to Fira but not crowded. Think of this as the luxury area 5 min... More

I find it hard to add to the already great comments others have posted. We were met at the airport by George and his cousin Albert and driven to the property. We were there for a full week and were lucky enough to have been upgraded to a magnificent suite for our entire stay. The property is immaculately designed and... More

I don't know what one reviewer was smoking when he rated this hotel as "average". This place is THE BEST hotel i have ever stayed in. The only regret i have is packing up n moving to Oia to a pre-booked hotel that had a view that was just as beautiful but for double the price, and hospitality that was... More

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon in September last year and we could not have been happier. The owner and staff are incredible and lovely lovely people. They gave fab restaurant recommendations and made our trip even more special through their help and advice. The room was lovely. I would describe as simple luxury. High quality bed,... More

Stunning rooms elegantly decorated, ultra comfy beds, jaw dropping view, your own (mini) pool at your feet and the obliging owner who is always tending to your needs. Away from the hustle and bustle of the clubbing reverb of Fira but within walking distance from everything, this IS the place to stay, if you can afford the price tag. Pricey,... More

I booked the hotel on the recommendation of a friend, the 5 star ratings on TA reassured me more on m choice. And they were bang on! It's a small property with only 4 suites. We were lucky as we got the Ostria suite, which is best for honeymooners like us, with the best view of the caldera from our... More

I won't repeat the layout descriptions. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite called Roza. The Suite consists of a sitting area, kitchen and 2 bedrooms, one of which is in the loft. The pool was shared along with the 4 chaise lounges. It is in a great location, walkable to everywhere. George was so kind, helpful and courteous. There... More

We stayed in this fantastic property in February 2013. This is a boutique hotel with only 4 rooms. We had traveled in the lean season and hence got a great rate. The caldera area of the island of Santorini is "mind-blowing" and this hotel accentuates that experience. The owner of the hotel, George, is a remarkable man and he ensured... More

We stayed for 2 nights. I chose this hotel because of very high reviews on Trip Advisor, and they were right! Room: It's a boutique hotel with only 4 rooms, and our suite had a beautiful design, comfortable bed and couch, free wi-fi, and a very nice view of the sea & sunset. Service: On our first day, the staff... More
