“Mixed Reviews..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2008

This hotel is one of the older traditional hotels in the area. It is situated very conveniently at the edge of town for easy walking distance to restaurants. There are 16 rooms. The one that we stayed in (Skiron B) was definately the worst, although for the $300+ per night - It shouldn't have been. The ONLY window in the place was the one above the door. Therefore, when the door was closed, there was virtually no light and the room is cave-like (as a traditional house is supposed to be). Our clothes that we washed would not dry because of the dark humid atmosphere. I hung a few items in our courtyard and got "scolded". One of the staff was friendly... the rest not. I would not object terribly to stay here again, but definately not in "Skiron B" room. I think my wife and son would vote to stay elsewhere, though. Also, no internet of any kind so we did have to go to a internet cafe.

My husband and I stayed at Aigialos and enjoyed it very much. Yes the room and bathroom were small and the little bed was hard , but after a day it felt very cozy. The views were spectacular. To wake up every morning and look out at the caldera was just beautiful and the weather was perfect every day. Demetri was great and brought us a fabulous breakfast every morning. Anything you wanted ham and cheese omelettes, croissant and jelly, fresh fruit, delicious yougurt with honey. So nice to walk out on your balcony in your robe and slippers and have breakfast with that view. And a perfect sunset everynight. Perfect location for that and for going to Fira. 2 minute walk to to town. And Olga our day hostess was very kind and helpful to make plans. The whole staff including Marietta helped make our stay wonderul ! P.S. We talk the boat out to the volcano which was a nice ride, but we found the walk up to the top , hot , dry and difficult, although jumping off into the hot sulphur springs was fun!

Stayed September 2007

The Aigialos Collection consists of sixteen, renovated neoclassical houses that were originally the fine homes of the island's noble captain families. The architecture and design of the houses bring to life the traditional way of life of the island's nobility.
