Really a great hotel. We would not have chosen another hotel after being there for a week and seeing the options. Firostefani is a nice part of Santorini. It's peaceful and quiet but a really short, pedestrian only, scenic walk to Fira. Fira is nice but staying there would mean visitors filing past your door all day everyday. We are... More

I spent 4 nights at Villa Ilias in April and it was the perfect base for my time in Santorini. The location is ideal (I loved the quieter area with great spots to eat a couple min walk away --and fine even alone in the dark-- and some of the best views on the island, and while obviously still a...

We could not have asked anything better! The staff was wonderful, the location was great (nice and calm and just a short walk away from Fira), the room was nice and ohhh the view was amazing! Would definitely stay here again.

Management professional and care taking. Excellent location at a walking distance to all restaurants, bars, shopping area etc. but its best is the view on the Caldera, the surroundings and the chora, really amazing.

The views of the blue domes and sea from our window were magically beautiful! Even the little window in the shower looked like a painting. It's a well located hotel close to nightlife but in a serene environment. The hotel is very clean. The breakfast was tasty with wide selection to choose from. The staff at this hotel are the...

Stayed here for 4 days with some friends and was greeted by George and the rest of the crew in such a friendly manner. He helped us with any queries we had and was very pleasant during the entire trip. We got upgraded from a triple room to a studio for free including free transfer which was great! Room was... More

My wife and I travelled through Greece for our honeymoon in September. We included a trip to Santorini. After extensive research, we knew we wanted a caldera view, and chose to stay at Villa Ilias because it was the least expensive place we found with a pool and caldera views. Our room was small, but adequate. We had incredible views... More

My sister and I spent five nights at the Villa Ilias in Firostefani in October 2014 and we could not have been more pleased with our stay. The location is perfect, the staff was friendly and accommodating, the rooms were incredibly affordable, and while on the smaller side, the rooms were clean and comfortable. There would be little need for... More

I went to Santorini for my Honerymoon and stayed in Exclusive Room of Villa Ilias for 5 nights from Oct 7-12. The first thing that you will notice is amazing hospitality of Marie, George, & Georgio, there are no words to express how brilliant they are. Exclusive room has an unearthly view of the Santorini Caldera and the sea. The... More

We were two couples on our first visit to Greece, and we wanted Caldera views in a quiet area, close to (but not right in) Fira, that didn't cost a fortune. Villas Ilias met all of our needs, and then some! It's a 15-minute walk to central Fira, on the Caldera (and the Fira-Oia bus line) and right near lots... More
