“Exquisite and stunning with gorgeous hosts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Our two days at this gorgeous hotel were somewhat eventful, but nothing to do with the hotel itself. The day we landed on the island, a fire at the island's power station wiped out the entire supply and we had pretty much no power for our entire two days' stay. It was disappointing as we were not able to experience the stunning hotel to its full potential - the lack of basics such as running water and lighting made for an interesting stay!

We felt so sorry for our hosts Eleni and George who are marvellous. I know the situation caused them a lot of stress as it meant they were not able to provide the perfect service to which they aspire, but they did their very best under the circumstances, providing an adequate breakfast, water in the room for washing and candles at night.

The hotel really is stunning... gob smackingly so, actually! It is littered with antiquities and has the most incredible views I have ever seen. Our stay - despite the power problems - was magical and we have such fond memories of our two days. We were unable to charge our phones and George even offered to drive around in his car to charge them - this shows the quality of the service this gorgeous couple provide!

For both our two nights, George had arranged tables at two wonderful restaurants and we felt honoured to have experienced two very special gems, which we would not have done would it not be for George's recommendation.

We fell in love with the hotel, its wonderful hosts, and this beautiful island and will certainly return!

We have just returned from a week in Santorini staying at Tsitouras in the House of Nureyev. We have just got married but we were also travelling with our adult children and this was a special occasion for our family. I have been to Santorini before but nothing prepared me of this amazing experience. From the minute we arrived we were told that we should regard this as our home and that we were there to relax and leave everything behind; this was exactly what happened. The location is amazing, Firostefani is still near Fira if you wish to walk there but the hotel is nicely tucked away from the crowds, with breathtaking views of the caldera. All rooms are amazing, full of art and history but I think everybody should try and book our room. The special thing about this hotel is the sense of history and art each room recreates, with artistic objects that you could easily spend hours admiring. The pool is good size and cool despite the strong summer sun and relaxing in it, watching the changing colours of the sea and sky is an experience we will never forget. Eleni and George have a careful, discreet presence, always smiling and advising us on the best Santorini has to offer, in terms of restaurants, beaches, places to visit. With their recommendation, we booked a sunset trip around the caldera which was absolutely amazing. We had the most amazing Greek breakfast every day served in the pool area at a time convenient to us. We also had light lunches around the pool a few times and the food was always carefully prepared and presented, made from fresh ingredients. This is a special place and we can't wait to go back.

What do you get when you have a young vibrant, intelligent and gracious host with great staff and the perfect location - a fabulous hotel to stay in - The Tsitouras Collection Santorini. My partner and I were there in May and it was so perfect that I kept dreaming of going back. it was certainly a highlight of the trip. Every attention to detail was there even for outdoor excursions Eleni made sure that all your travel around the island and hiring cars etc went without a hitch. The view is perfect, the rooms spacious and cool and beautifully appointed. Breakfast an absolute delight and the fact you could have it at anytime was a real treat - nothing was ever too much trouble and the evening cocktails were sublime - all too perfect really. Its a credit to Eleni and her team. Our private dinner on the terrace watching the sunset will be embedded in our memories forever. Blue skies, perfect view and Eleni's, Monge and Stefano's smile to greet you each day - miss you all - thank you for making our stay perfect!!

"Stuck' on Santorini for two extra nights due to flight problems, we found this brilliant hotel at the very last minute and what a find!

Perfect location, exquisite rooms (think art gallery/museum meets hotel room in heaven!) and friendly, personal service by both the owners and staff. Pool deck is the most beautiful we have ever seen, with a four-sided 'infinity' pool edge - very creative. Views from the pool and our patio are as good as any in Santorini, overlooking the caldera and with sunset views.

Breakfasts are served in your room or patio, a wonderful spread, so much we felt guilty eating it, but couldn't resist. They also did lunch for us under the cabana on the pool deck, and recommended a couple of great dining options only a few metres away for dinner.

Everything about this place exudes quality, from the marble bathrooms, the linen and toiletries, the beds and pillows and even the lighting and door furniture. Everything has been taken care of, the wifi works in spite of half metre thick walls, the staff are attentive and discreet, and Eleni and George are always hovering in the background to make sure everything is under control.

Room Tip: Each suite is different, both in size and decoration - there are no 'bad' rooms!

This is a small but spectacular hotel with beautifully appointed rooms. It is clean, quiet, and brilliantly run and staffed. Eleni, the owner, personally takes charge of organizing the guests' activities and ensures that everything worked out efficiently. I thoroughly
enjoyed myself!

My wife and I spent our one year anniversary in Tsitouras (house of Nureyev) and we had an amazing experience in every respect. Eleni and the staff were very professional from the first minute and although we arrived very early in the morning on the first day they accommodate us in our suite and prepared breakfast for us. All the suggestions from Eleni regarding restaurants and beach bars were spot on! The service and cleanses can only be compared to top notch hotels. We also had a private dinner at the terrace by the pool and the food (mainly fish food) and atmosphere were amazing. Cannot wait to come back soon!!

Like reviewers before me, words will not do this hotel and its staff justice. Our hosts, Eleni & George, provide the very best experience in a luxury boutique hotel that you will find anywhere in the world. Not only is every request dealt with in a genuinely friendly, attentive and helpful manner by all their wonderful staff but both Eleni & George take a personal hands on approach to making sure your stay is as perfect as can be. Trips, restaurants, car hire etc are all arranged with no fuss and everything is as booked, on time and of the best quality. The hotel and villa though are equally the very best with elegant style in every detail complemented by a beautiful art collection throughout all the properties. And then there is the view! This was an absolute joy of a holiday and if you ever get the chance make sure you visit and stay at the Tsitouras Collection - you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Any room is good here with stunning views of the bay and the sunset.
