Situated about 2km away from the main Fira town centre, Volcano View Hotel is perched on the cliff with an unobstructed view of the Volcano and a partial view of Skaros Rock. It is away from the main tourist centres of Oia and Fira, so it makes for a very relaxing and peaceful get-away. When we stayed, the hotel was full - but we never felt like it was over-populated or resources were running thin.
When we arrived - we were put into a twin room - after we had requested a King, however, the front desk team were very accommodating and moved us the next night to a much nicer King Room overlooking the pool. Our room was attached to the main building, but i would enquire about staying in a room down the 'cliff' a little, as your balcony looks directly over the water and cliffs - whereas our room was a bit more 'inland' than that.
The pools were ok - no infinity pool, though.
Breakfast was nice and much the same every morning; greek yoghurt, fruits, eggs, greek pastries, greek cookies & some sausages in pastry and croissants. You can make instant coffee yourself in the self-serve machine - but if you want a latte and order it from the counter you will have to pay extra - 4 Euro.
Service in the restaurant was really friendly - make sure you get to know Kostas, who is part of the F&B team in the hotel. He will most likely serve you dinner or breakfast at some point during your stay. He is extremely friendly and is always happy to help with any questions or queries - he has quite a sense of humour too!
The restaurant for dinner was nice - although a bit pricey. We loved the calamari and the tomato balls.
The rooms at Volcano View Hotel are not magnificent, but - guaranteed, you will not be staying in your room often - you will be sitting outside on the balcony or by the pool - which is really comfortable.
