From the moment you arrive at the doorway of Petit Palace - which is on the side of the road with a drop down the side of the caldera - you cannot get over how beautiful it is. We had a beautiful room with a private terrace where we were able to sit with a glass of wine to watch the sunset. On our arrival we had lunch in the restaurant with the amazing view which we never tired of. Our room was superb and our bedroom had the best view. From the time we arrived the service was perfect, the food just what we wanted. Breakfasts were served in the room and were more than adequate. The staff - especially the two female waiters - were exceptionally good and knowledgeable about the food and wine. Room service, which we ordered a few times, arrived quickly and beautifully set out. I suppose if you wanted to eat there all the time you may have found the menu limited (we caught the regular shuttle into Fira on occasions) but for us it was more than adequate. We stayed 4 nights and it was just fantastic.

We just returned from our honeymoon and I'm still fantasizing about our stay. Simply amazing on all levels. Until you set foot on santorini and see the stunning place yourself. Words and pictures can't do this hotel justice. I travel often for work and personal, and have stayed in many places. This will go in the books for most memorable.

Room Tip: All have a sea view. We booked the smallest class and it was a great size. Perfect for two. I don...

My partner and I stayed at Petit Palace for one week in May. An incredible hotel close to Fira but not so close that you feel in the midst of the city, which is great if you want to enjoy a peaceful and quiet evening.

The hotel is built on one of the most beautiful points of the caldera, where all the rooms have a sea view. The layout of the hotel makes you feel like you are the only guests and the views of the sunset were stunning. We truly felt like a Greek God and Goddess sitting on our private terrace with a glass of wine in our hands! Really romantic!!!

Breakfast is à la carte and can be served every morning to your room while overlooking the Caldera. So delicious and unlimited orders taken if your appetite is slightly on the bigger side!

Staff are really friendly and customer service flawless. Being "foodies" we were recommended a restaurant to visit during our stay - Metaxi Mas. A cute little taverna hidden away from all the overpriced, tourist restaurants in Fira. Metaxi Mas doesn't look like much from the outside but choosing to have dinner at this place, you will definitely be pleasantly surprised. We went to this restaurant twice on our last two days and wished we'd discovered it sooner!

The hotel is very clean, fresh and modern with spacious rooms and a bathroom with a huge Jacuzzi bath big enough for two. Our stay was unforgettable and my partner and I truly felt like we were in a dream at times. This hotel with it's unique entrance really is a little taster of heaven!

My husband and I travel a lot.
When we take a trip, a hotel room is one of the crucial considerations for us.
To be honest, before making the reservation, I was concered because it's not a big name hotel.
But after the stay, I definately can say that Petit Palace Suites Hotel is highly recommendable.

First, view is breathtaking.
I've seen many beautiful places including Maldives, Phuket, California, and many parts of Europe but believe me. the view from the room is really WOW.

Second, food!
I've read other reviews regarding the breakfast. As other past visitors mentioned, lovely, dilicious!
Having that with the view,,,,you should try. So goooood!!!!

Lastly, staff is awesome.
Everyone was nice. They are not too nice to make you feel uncomfortable. They provide just the right service.

Actually their service is the reason why I am writing this review. When my hubby and I visited Santorini, we rented a car from one rentcar company. Unfortunately my husband dented the car's rear bumper while he was parking :( So we were in trouble to negotiate with the rent car company(They required too much money and we didn't want to pay that much).
I wrote an email to the hotel if they can let me know regular price for fixing the car's rear bumper. I knew the hotel staff could say 'I do not know, Sorry about that'.
Practically it's none of the hotel's business.
But one staff from this hotel replied me back with full of useful information. Moreover, one staff made a call to the rent car company for us.
We were very touched by the service.
Of course, the call did not help me to reduce the fixing cost, but I do appreciate Petit Palace's service.
They don't consider you as a one-time customer. They try to help you when you need one.

Enjoy the stay~~

Room Tip: Every room has almost same view. Breathtaking one. There are a lot of strairs but enjoyable. unle...

We've just returned from 11 nights at this hotel based on TA reviews and they weren't wrong. Firstly, thank you Mike for the upgrade to Room 120 - really beautiful suite on two floors with it's own pool. All the staff at this hotel cannot do enough for you and remember all your slightest requests so that you don't have to ask time and time again. The views from everywhere at the hotel are simply stunning both at breakfast and, of course, sunset. Plenty of clean towels, for bath and pool/beach, are provided daily. Regular free minibus into Fira all through the day and evening. Great central location in the Island and ideal if you're hiring a car/quad bike with parking on site as driving is easy with no need for a map. One comment though, which has been mentioned before, is that the mattresses are quite hard, but as we were there for quite a long time we got used to it.

Room Tip: Room 120 has to be the best in the hotel if you can afford it.

The most beautiful view on the island. We told them we were on our honeymoon and they upgraded our room. Breakfast is served to you every morning in your room while looking at the caldera. You can watch the sunset from anywhere in the hotel and it is beautiful. We would defiantly come back in a heartbeat.
