Would definitely stay here again - we must have gotten the best hotel room - breathtaking views. Hotel room was clean, staff was very nice and Maria was amazing - she helped us with so much and made the experience in Santorini that much better. HIGHLY recommend.

Ira hotel is located in Firostefani, only 10-15min walking distance from Fira. The panoramic view is idyllic, you can stay for hours on your balcony or by the pool admiring the whole caldera and of course the famous Santorini sunset! It is definitely worth to book a room with caldera view, we stayed in "Poseidon" room (the balcony is over... More

Would easily stay here again - good location, an easy walk to Fira, but far enough away for quiet evenings. Also, a quick walk to the local bus. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean, airy rooms. Spend the extra for a caldera view - totally worth it! Should note that the website mentions the spa, but didn't have an online menu. The... More

We chose a suite with caldera view, and the view was everything we wished for from a stay in Santorini. The room was very clean and quite nice (traditional furniture, tile floor), with a large balcony. I would have given the hotel 5 stars rating if not for the noise from the guests in the room above us, who were... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations! After hunting the most economical, yet picturesque hotel that sat on the Caledra I was totally impressed with this hotel. The rooms were homely, clean and spacious. The breakfast was delicious...fresh juices, Greek delights that tasted home made.

We loved our two night stay here (two couples; two rooms). The views are stunning. The pool is small but refreshing when enjoying the heat in their brand new lounge chairs. While there is no bar by the pool, there is a courtesy phone to call the hotel restaurant for drinks and food to be delivered. We had two cave... More

Fantastic hotel, just 10 minutes walk from Fira. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, special mention to Maria! We stayed in Poseidon which is over the pool, and yes, there are some steps in the room, but if you have an issue with steps any of the towns around the Caldera are not for you. We didn't feel particularly overlooked,... More

This hotel overlooks the Caldera in Firastefani, a 15 minute walk from downtown Fira. The staff was incredibly nice, they arranged anything we asked or needed, suggested some great restaurants as well as arranged for travel. We had an early morning departure and they set up a small breakfast for us even though their kitchen didn't open for another 2... More

This is a beautiful hotel. Really well run beautifully maintenaned with excellent service. The breakfast choices are good all in a lovely room. My advice would be don't be seduced into thinking that you need a bedroom with a caldera view. The nicest rooms are definitely the cave rooms. My caldera view room could have fitted in the bathroom of... More
