My daughter and I chose to stay at Smaro studios based on reviews - good price, friendly family-owned and on the caldera! At first we we're not sure if we needed to be on the caldera as we thought we would be out at cliff side restaurants for sunset! However we very much enjoyed just sitting on our balcony with...

My friend and I stayed at Dmitris' room beside the Reception area. It was spacious, has it's own kitchenette and VERY CLEAN. The welcome fruit platter, nuts and Santo wine are delicious. The balcony is not part of the room, we had to go up the rooftop past the other rooms. No problem there as we still enjoyed eating brakfast... More

A beautiful little hotel with terrace for each room. The sunset views are just amazing. We loved the mornings and evenings that we spent at Smaro Studios. The day started with a big tray of breakfast served by Maria at the roof top looking at the lovely views of the volcano. During evenings, the sunsets views were as soothing as... More

We spent two weeks at Smaro Studios. The proprietor, Maria, and her son, Michael, were friendly, helpful and attentive to our needs. Although small by North American standards, our room was adequate and met our needs. We did not spend a lot if time in our room - used mainly for sleeping, showering and changing our clothes. The majority of... More

A most beautiful and quant little hotel with individual balconies for each room and breakfast served outside in the morning. I would highly recommend. Close to shops and restaurants. The lady owner was delightful and very helpful. The views are unbelievable!

Smaro Studios was an excellent Inn for our visit in Santorini. If you reserve a room with a caldera view from the Porch, you will have an amazing view and a lovely room with many accomodations, such as a fridge, cutlery, glasses. The breakfast is great and is brought to your porch by staff where you can eat and relax... More

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
