You cannot knock the location! Its at the very top of this part of Firostefani with simply superb views but once you have said that, sadly, you have covered all the positives
The room was damp - one wardrobe door hinge is rusted solid, the external blinds are false (without the correct openings in the surface to ventilate) and do not allow enough ventiation, so much so that after closing them for one night the inside of the blinds was running with condensation. Clothes left in the wardrobe over night were damp by morning. To describe Room 6 as 'Spacious' (as the website does) is a poor joke - 3 beds in c 10' X 11' is not spacious, there is hardly enough space to walk between the beds. The kitchen has a sink with hot and cold taps but the Hot tap is connected to the cold supply, as is the cold! The wash basin in the bathroom (with holes in the ceiling and tile grouting missing in places) had no plug and one of the taps has lost its chrome. The tiled floor and shower tray are very slippery and close to dodgy when wet and one tiny bath mat doesnt solve the problem. The lady receptionist/general factotum is very obliging but has a lack of language skills and surpriningly did not know that Museums in Greece are apparently NOT open on Mondays so - even knowing that was where we were headed - she didnt offer any advice and when we mildly remonstrated on return that our day had been wasted and it would have been nice if she had told us - she seemed to be as surprised as we were.
The administration failed to confirm in advance that we would be met at the harbour despite our asking on the Bookings.com booking site and chasing up directly by email.
The price for this room was exhorbitant and there was no approved room price notice inside the door, as we saw in other places we stayed at in Greece, and we decided to save ourselves the hassle of complaining and prefer to caution others not to expect too much.
Santorini prices seem high compared with elsewhere and it is a truly lovely island but I wouldnt stay again or advise others to stay at Kafieris Apartments (on the cliff) and would have willingly paid more for something closer to what the website led me to expect had I known more in advance.
