Bad experience from a to z. Their website says "Newly renovated spacious rooms." Well, newly renovated in the 80's and spacious by Tokio standards... When we arrived, they tried to accomodate us in a double room, even though we had booked a triple room. The old lady running the hotel spoke hardly any English. We tried to move to another... More

A wonderful little hotel ideally situated In the Main Street of Firostefani. Surrounded by great restaurants within a stone's throw, and two minutes walk from a great sunset vantage point. Well priced, staff very courteous, and a great little shop underneath. We would definitely stay here again.

I was very dissapointed with this hotel. The location is convenient, the rooms are clean but nowhere near a proper 3 star hotel. There is NO view of the Caldera, Mylos Cafe which is right in front blocks the entire view. Do not be fooled by the pictures you see online. It is an average hotel and does not deserve... More

Located at top of the hill in Firostefani, right next to bus stop so very convenient! Only a 10minute, scenic walk to Fira town. The staff are excellent, from the email correspondence to the hotel folks. Always eager to help and book any excursions. Breakfast at Cafe Mylos across the path offers a view like no other. Would love to... More

We stayed her last summer for one night (2 adults and 2 children). We have been to Santorini 10 times and often only in transit for 1-2 nights. For this short period we need good location (minimarket, Caldera, closness to Chora, reasonable priced rooms, swimmingpool and good service. And off cours the hotel needs to be in Firostefani:) This village... More

The room was clean and big with plenty of chairs & tables outside around the place & pool to chill as well. A close 15 minutes walk to head into the center of Thira or Imerovigli; many restaurants and mini-markets nearby so it was in an excellent location. Everyone on the staff was very nice & even personally drove me... More

We stayed at this hotel for four nights in July. The hotel is located in Firostefani, which is a lovely village just outside the capita Fira. It takes around 10/15 minutes to walk from the hotel to Fira, the walk is along a delightful cobbled, pedestrianised path which over looks the Caldera allowing wonderful views. The hotel is a small... More

We stayed here on a recommendation of a friend. The location is excellent, just 10 minutes to Fira and surrounded by lots of cafes, bars and shops. Our superior room was spacious with a lovely four poster bed (albeit a bit squeaky). The pool and poolside seating was clean and as the hotel is so small there was plenty of... More

My boyfriend I stayed here, and it was one of the cheaper places we looked at on the calder side of Santorini. After a bit of a hair raising taxi journey from the port, we arrived and I was very pleased with the hotel and the location (on the main "street" in Firostefani). It couldn't have been more convenient for... More
