We booked the studio at Blue dolphin in May and then closer to our trip, there was a few reviews that caused me a bit of concern and I was wondering whether we made a mistake, but we didn't and we had a wonderful time. Our studio was on the first floor and although the room was very small, it was spotless and we had a wonderful view of the caldera and even a small table and chairs just outside our room. The studio rooms at Blue Dolphin is a wonderful answer if you are on a bit of a budget. For the same price you can probably get a larger room in town, but having a caldera view is a must when visiting Santorini. Yes, there are about 40 plus steps, but this is the caldera and the majority of hotels will have steps and lots of them. The hotel is in Firostefanie and not Fira and that may be why one of the reviewers felt it was far from everything. It is about a 20 minute stroll along the caldera to Fira and it is such a beautiful walk, you would not mind doing it twice a day! It is also a nice (uphill) walk to Imerovigli. We hired an ATV to explore the island and pop to the beaches on the other side.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Blue Dolphins is situated in the village of Firostefani, which is a 10 minute walk from the capital village of Fira (through a beautiful pedestrian path on the caldera). We have the privilege of being at a magical location in terms of view and peace of scenery, but also close to the restaurants, bars and nightlife of Fira, the capital of Santorini. Blue Dolphins is also connected to the picturesque village of Imerovigli which is also just a 10 minute walk through a pedestrian path on the caldera. ... more less
