We picked the Uranos after exploring Imerovigli for the day and deciding to spend a night of our holiday there being that the place is just so beautiful. After enquiring at many different properties throughout the area, the Uranos was the only accommodation who could deal with walk up customers. Several other properties either had no reception or told me to 'come back tomorrow'. We where given an excellent rate so booked for 2 nights later.
Upon returning, our room, a two bedroom suite was ready early and we where immediately shown to it and then around the property. The room itself was superb! Very spacious with 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, 2 single beds and a separate bedroom with a double bed and en-suite. The room featured an LCD TV with 30+ channels and a DVD player, a safe, dehumidifier, air conditioning, direct dial phone and bathroom amenities. The bedding was also of a high standard which made for a comfortable nights sleep!
Moving outside, the room had a shared terrace with sunloungers and obviously, the breathtaking view of the Caldera with Fira on the left and Oia on the right. The view is at its most stunning when you wake up in the morning and open your door.
The hotel takes great pride in it's breakfast and rightly so! The American style breakfast features a huge array of high quality food which can all be enjoyed whilst sitting on the balcony of the restaurant. The hotel also has two Jacuzzi's - one undercover and one in the sunshine. Staff throughout the property are extremely helpful, down to earth and friendly. Their is also free WiFi which you just need to ask for the password to access.
A vast number of beautiful bars and restaurants are all nearby with Firastefani being within 10-15 minutes walk and Fira itself being around 30 minutes by foot.
Overall, this property is an excellent choice for a relaxed, quiet holiday with a difference. That difference being the unique view you will wake up to each morning. It is superb value, especially when compared with other surrounding accommodations. If you are celebrating anything or looking for a romantic location, Imerovigli fits the bill.
