which hotel do you recommend for us?

I'm going to santorini 18-20, Feb, 2012. I'll be with my friend and her child aged 8. Three of us hate being chilly in a room. And the room should be clean. That's all we want.

I'm thinking of 3 options. Antonia apartment, Kafieris Apartments(fira), residence suites(oia). Do they all have a working heater system? Which is best? Your recommendations are welcomed. Looking forward to getting your answers... Thanks!!!

One more question: how far is it from fira to oia by car?

If you will stay in a cave house, you will not need heating. Cave houses are warm during winter. Although most of the cave houses have heating devices (my preference is not an aircondition). Just ask.

Oia is only 20 minutes drive from Fira

In Ioa it is quiete in the winter, I would recommend to stay in the caldera, but than in Firostefani near Fira. In Ioa is quiet in the winter. In Firostefani I recommend Shine Hotel, present here on TA. 4 Star Quality for 2 star prices in the winter and excellent service, heating and Volcana view

If a hotel offers A/C it will also have heating as the heat comes from the same wall-mounted unit as the A/C. You just have to adjust the temperature.

I agree that you should probably stay in Fira or Firostefani. The rest of the island will be very quiet in February. Here's a list of hotels open all year: http://www.santorini.com/hotels/allyear.htm

You shoud know that cavehouses can be be very dump and uncomfortable at wintertime if the are not very well maintained. Avoid Residence Suites as also everything will be closed in Oia that time ( e.g.right now in November. there is only 1 cafe and 1 supermarket open......)
