Archontiko Apartments gives you the Santorini experience you've been dreaming of: breathtaking views, the balance between being close to food/activities in the day but quiet at night, and sweet hospitality from the owners. All this along with beautiful furnishings and an affordable price made this our best hotel find... ever! Even as we moved on to other islands, we kept saying how we missed Archontiko.
I admit I was nervous before arriving that the place would be too good to be true because I had sent several emails with no response. Once we arrived, I soon realized this is a small operation maintained by a husband and wife team who clean, provide breakfast (5 euro/person/day), and answer questions from their guests all by themselves. They're probably not email people.
Also, although they advertise services like assistance with airport/ferry transfer and ATV rentals, it's really best to take care of these things on your own. Luckily, its perfect location makes it easy to do so. Just tell the taxi driver your hotel is located near Agios Minas chapel across from Hotel Keti if he's unfamiliar with the hotel name. As far as ATV rental, just walk from store to store within the main square and select the best price (but don't forget to also ask about horsepower)! We parked our ATV in the lot near the church.
Santorini and Archontiko Apartments, in particular, was everything we hoped for! If we ever visit Santorini again, we would definitely stay at Archontiko.
