“A great view of fairyland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2010

Our ferry from Crete was delayed a day by bad weather. No matter. The complimentary shuttle up to the top of Fira was waiting for us at the dock. They carry your bags up and down the charmingly steep paths. Koula was waiting with a cup of coffee or a fresh drink and all of the information we needed about the island. Someone called Santorini "Cinque Terre on steroids." The suites with their private decks are ideally sited overlooking the Caldera and up through the magical town hanging on the cliff. Koula and her staff could not have been more delightful. You feel immediately like a good friend. Highly recommended.

Our whole experience in Santorini was wonderful. Aside from the beauty of the location and the crystal clear waters at the various beaches (Perovolaso was the BEST!), the service received at Caldera Studios was the best we had ever received.

Koula, the owner and manager treated us as family the whole time we were there. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the views incredible.

As my wife is pregnant, the service was lifted to another level with Koula replacing the water in the jacuzzi especially for my wife, ordering meals in, offering valuable advice regarding safe places to travel around Santorini (flat plains and flat beaches) and so much more. This was over and above our expectations.

We visited cities in Paris and Italy and in never experienced service above average. We are very happy that our final stay was Santorini as it was the best way to finish.

We would recommend Caldera Studios to everyone and we look forward to returning again soon with friends and family.

my brother and I stayed in caldera studios for 2 nights, it was a last minute booking (from the airport) but they accomodated us immediately, (btw they have free pick up service which is great!) Koula, the manager was very a very friendly and welcoming host, and she made us feel at home. the view from the balcony is amazing, and you don't have to go far to enjoy the sunset.. all the better when you are enjoying the view from the jacuzzi!
the 2 nights in Fira was very enjoyable, thanks to caldera studios, its location is near the town, and the rooms are very comfortable, breakfast is great as well! Definitely will recommend this to my friends because it is value for money.

The views from every balcony are amazing. The accommodations are basic, but you cannot beat the price. We bought a couple bottles of wine and watched the sunset from our balcony. Very romantic and unforgettable. The breakfast was also very good. It would be nice if there was a pool, but the price would be much more expensive if that was the case.

My wife and I was on our honeymoon. We spent a month around Europe and out of all the hotels, this was the best hotel we went to. The Manager "Koula" was extremely helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived at the hotel. We felt so welcomed, they had a complimentary pick up service from the airport/ferry which definately what you need after a long ferry ride. They were very helpful with helping prepare our itinerary providing us with what to do while in Santorini. Oh I forgot to mention, for the price, which is good, the view was excellent. Our room was overlooking the volcano and sunset in Santorini, it was a great place to end our holiday. Highly recommeded :)
