We were taken care of from setting up the airport shuttle to getting the luggage back to the shuttle for departure. There's nothing like a private balcony and breakfast outside our door to make you feel taken care of. Our bed was in a loft over the seating and kitchen area. The shower and sink area was expertly planned and... More

We stayed at Smaro for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. Logistically, we couldn't have asked for a more convenient location. It's a 10 min walk to Fira and there's a large parking lot within 3 mins walking distance from Smaro (we rented a car for our entire trip and never had a problem with parking). The local Firostefani bus... More

Maria and her son Mikie are the perfect hosts. A huge breakfast served on the balcony with incredible views. What more can you ask for? Rooms are a bit small but beautifully decorated and very clean. Firostefani is the place to stay. We highly recommend Smaro. We stayed at the Katerina Room. Thank you Maria and Mikie!

We have been using trip advisor for travel information for a long time. We are pretty happy/agree with the reviews and therefore do not feel the need to say more. Not this time ! We found the information on smart hotel misleading and the reviews didn't cover that. We booked one standard room thru Expedia which is described as with... More

Love the family run business feel. A nice breakfast served to us every morning. Such a cute abd traditional home feel that was clean and comfortable. Its about a 10 minute walk to Fira but another 10 to rwach the main square. Going back is a little harder because there's a lot of uphill. Do not take a taxi. There... More

This hotel is placed so well the views are breath taking. We had a very warm welcome from Maria when we arrived. They were the nicest, warmest and most helpful people. I even felt guilty having Maria climbing up the stairs every morning delivering the most amazing breakfast on your own balcony. It was great watching the cruise ships sailing... More

Отель, номера, вид на кальдеру, окрестности - все, как на картинке. И даже лучше. Это настоящий Санторини. А теперь по пунктам. 1. Очень гостеприимный, дружелюбный и при этом ненавязчивый персонал. Номер дали более высокой категории без всякой доплаты. В номере были сладости, фрукты и вино. 2. Вокруг отеля - настоящая белоснежная сказка: узкие уютные улочки, куда забредают лишь редкие туристы,... More

I stayed at this hotel in July and although I had the most wonderful experiences all over Greece during my three week stay, there is something very special about Smaro Studios. I stayed in the Georgio room which is at the top of this small hotel. The room is a bit smaller than all the other rooms (some of them... More

We stayed in this small hotel for 3 nights in September and we throughly enjoyed it. We had the Smaro room and it is very roomy. We arrived at around noon time and our room was not ready. Maria, the owner, sat us down in a balcony under an umbrella and served us orange juice/ cookies while we were waiting... More
