So delighted with our room that we stayed on the balcony for the rest of the day. Ordered a meal in-room and enjoyed a fantastic sunset in the evening. Hotel very clean with excellent breakfast. Rooms are of good size with good mattress. bathroom on the small side but really that did not matter, it was all about the 180deg... More

Lovely hotel with a spectacular viewof caldera. This hotel is in a perfect centralized location, out of the way of the crowds but a short walking distance via scenic footpath to Imerovigli and Firostefani - Fira.

Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived! We had requested to have a taxi pick us up at the port and it was well worth it, we got a taxi ride and a tour guide at the same time. She gave us a good history lesson, some great recommendations on places to see, and great restaurants. Once we were... More

My husband and I went to Santorini for our honeymoon and stayed at hotel Ira and we were so pleased. Our room was beautiful and the view was spectacular! When we arrived they carried all of our luggage to our room which had many stairs and then treated us to a drink and the yummiest coconut and honey dessert! We... More

Santorini has the best view I've ever seen. There may be more perfect locations to view the Caldera, but for my wife and I this place was perfect. Our balcony view was worth every penny ... And it allowed me to forgive the design imperfections in the room. In fact, the view of the sunset (without the circus of Oia... More

Lovely hotel 15 minute walk from center of Fira, on the northern end of Firostefani, also right next to Imerovigli. Our friends had stayed here a few weeks before us and highly recommended it. The best thing about this hotel for me were the people at the front desk. I dealt mostly with Maria. I asked them for recommendations, reservations,... More

The hotel is on the cliff edge in the upper part of Firostefani, only 20 minutes walk from Fira but so much more peaceful. Both the footpath and road are on the inland side so the site has good privacy. A good selection of restaurants are within a few minutes stroll in Firostefani. There are great caldera views both from... More

The Hotel Ira was the first hotel we stayed in for a week in Santorini split between Firostefani and Perissa in the south. So why pick Ira? First location, the hotel is situated at the top of Firostefani on the coast path between Fira and Oia. Because of its location on the cliffs that also means your balcony and the... More

The hotel arranged for a driver and van to meet us at the hotel. He loaded our bags and we wound our way to the top enjoying the views along the way. We were a bit skeptical when he dropped us off, but as we preceded down the steps it all came into view. Check-in was efficient at this lovely... More
