Lovely little hotel in a breathtaking location on the Caldera, the staff here are upta friendly and helpful, nothing seems to be too much trouble, very clean with lovely rooms, we had room 110 by the pool but it was peaceful with excellent views. You won't go wrong for staff, location and overall comfort if you book this tranquil little... More

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet retreat with stunning views. The only downside would be the stairs but I think that would be the same for any hotel on this side of the island. Friendly staff and small but nice little rooms.

We stayed in one of the caldera view rooms and boy are we glad we did! This hotel is a 15 minute walk to Fira and a bit off the path to Oia, meaning, people are not walking past your hotel pool when they make the walk from Fira to Oia so it's nice and quiet when you hang by... More

We stayed here for four nights to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in August 2014. We had been referred to this hotel from friends who had come for their honeymoon a few years prior and had a great experience. I was in contact with Maria leading up to our stay and she was very helpful in booking transfers to/from the... More

The location of this hotel is ideal for experiencing all of Santorini. Centrally located in the middle of the island, 10 mins stroll along the caldera from thriving Thira. Panoramic views of why Santorini is considered the crown jewel of the Greek islands. Rooms are small on the pool deck, but we spent most of our time soaking up the... More

My first review on trip advisor and I have no doubt that this will be the best review I ever give. Absolutely stunning hotel, gorgeous location, roughly 10 minute scenic walk to the main centre in Fira, shop right across the road to hire scooter or ATV/quad bike which I highly recommend to hire a quad bike and ride all...

Hotel Ira is a very wonderful hotel! The rooms are nice, the view from the hotel and the pool is magic and the ones working there are doing everything they can in order to make you stay as wonderful as possible. Firostefani has nice restaurants and Fira is just a short walk away. The sunset here is as beautiful as... More

After reading the rave reviews about this hotel, was very excited to spend a few days here during our stay in Santorini but am sorry to say this was clearly overpriced and our worst stay during our Greek holiday. The location is perfect and although the hotel is very high up so be prepared to walk alot of steps but... More

This was our second visit to Santorini and to the Ira. Once again we were not disappointed. From a lovely welcome back to the entire staff, all of whom were extremely pleasent, friendly and welcoming. The wonderful view of the entire island - from Oia to Acritiri to the Caldera immediately in front of our bedroom window. The room was... More

Hotel Ira is really everything you can ask for for a perfect holiday in Santorini :) The location on the edge of Firostefani (and the edge of the caldera) is perfect for those who want some peace and quiet but a scenic walk to the services and restaurants of Fira. The room was spotlessly clean and cleaned every day during... More
