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

I stayed at Smaro Studio with my wife, and we took the second floor room. Sunset view was great. We were there together with another few couples staying in different rooms. The owner's son Mikie is very nice. Breakfast was really great. You can have it just outside your room and have a nice sea view in the morning. Easy... More

We have recently stayed at Smaro Studios and from the very beginning we were treated as special. Maria was there to help us with any problems, and even moved us to a bigger room when it became available. Breakfast was huge!! Rooms were clean, and the view wow!! Could have sat on the balcony all day looking. We really enjoyed... More

Smaro Studios is my heaven on earth of all the places i have been to so far. Excellent decision to stay here during my 1st trip to Santorini with my husband this June. The location is marvellous - overlooking the sea and Caldera on one side. The other side [that also happens to lead you to the hotel entrance] opens... More

We stayed for 4 nights in July 2013 in one of the standard apartments (Dmitris). The room was very big with seating area and kitchenette and good aircon. There was a seating area outside the room with no view but then we also had a private balcony with an excellent view of the caldera where we could have breakfast and... More
