“Beautiful room but lacks privacy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We'd taken cave suite as that was the only available option. The room was very cozy and spacious, and the manager George was very helpful. We realised though this room would be excellent for families, it wasn't the best for couples. The blinds are very narrow and jacuzzi was at hotel entrance in front of office so almost unusable. The hotel location is very convenient and breakfast is quite filling.

The hotel is nice. All in all it has about 7 rooms. It is situated at the best location of the caldera. It’s exactly above Skaros at the highest point of the caldera. We actually had a balcony at the top of the hotel with the most amazing view (although I’m not sure that it was just our balcony since it was separate and anyone had access). The only problem was a cable which destroyed all our photos of the sunset. However not all rooms have a great view. The 2 Oniro Suites have a great view, but Lava doesn’t have a nice veranda. The Volcano Cave Suite doesn’t have a view at all.
Originally we booked for Lava Suite but our room was full so we had an upgrade and stayed at the Volcano Suite. The room is very nice and spacious, but the bathroom was really awful. It is clean but it is tiny, old and when you have a shower, the water will run all over the bathroom. If it wasn’t for the bathroom I would definitely go there again, and it would be the best value for money hotel in Santorini. But the bathroom was unbearable!
Other than that we were pleased. The staff was very helpful, the room was clean and the breakfast was quite nice. I would only recommend it for those who are prepared for a below average bathroom.

I enjoyed the ability to have continental breakfast at the two patios outside our room and the serenity that came with the view. That's the best part of the hotel. Some people I know had to climb hundreds of steps to get similar view. You only need to go throught a few flights of steps to get to Oniro as it is located at the top of the hill. For those people who complain about this, they obviously don't realise what Santorini is all about.

Once inside the room, I have to say I was a little disappointed as the room is beginning to show its age. The toilet was was also very cramped but that apparently is a characteristic of hotels in Santorini. The owner did inform me that he will be upgrading the villas once the tourist season was over in November. So please check as it is a lovely place to be.

Room Tip: The jacuzzis are not exactly private. So, if you're thinking of frolicking in private, then you...

The view from the hotel sitting directly on the rocks is really incredible. But I believe it is the same for all the hotels located in that area. Good service by the hotel manager, Dimitris, transporting us from the port to the hotel really late at night. The room was actually quite basic. The bathroom was bascially 1,5x1,5m in a style of a simple hostel. You can sit on the toilet and having a showing at the same time. But overall price for value was o.k. and we had a great time.

We landed at this hotel by chance as our booked hotel did not work out. Dimitri had 2 rooms for our party and cheerfully showed us around and included our breakfasts, as he was so sorry that we were inconvenienced. Breakfast was great! Yogurt, fresh fruit and bread with an egg and superb coffee on the terrace! Our room was huge and beautiful! So cool to be sleeping "in" the mountain! There are a bunch of steps to get to this hotel, but hey, it is Santorini, a mountainous environment, so pack accordingly. It is worth it! One reviewer complained about the bathroom. it is very Greek. And, if you don't blast the shower, it doesn't get all over everything.
Imerovigla is away from the hustle and traffic of Fira and yet, you can walk there. It is wonderful!

well,I guess it's the best vacation we ever had, and staying at Oniro Suites added a lot to the fun of it.
The hotel is situated in the best point of the island for great view, the highest point, Imerovigli. It's also centerally located between the two tips of the Island. Very close to Fira` yet away from the noise.
Our suite had two great terraces with amazing views of Caldera, Aegean etc. Sunset was amazing.
The suite was spacious and clean, except for the small bathroom. The bed was really comfortable.
The breakfast was very good to start the day with and Dimitris was always flexible if we were a bit late for breakfast time, always brought it to our terrace, so we could enjoy the nice breakfast with amazzzzing stunniiiiing view :-)
Dimitris was also helpful with everything and nothing seemed to much for him, we could book and cancel and re-book and re-cancel yet he was always flexible and friendly.Excellent service.
We would definetely stay again at Oniro Suites but next time we'd book the suite with veranda jacuzzi. Polliiii Kalo

Room Tip: choose 3rd floor suite for the view

My partner and I were in Santorini for 2 nights, and quite thankfully it was only 2 nights looking at our accomodation.
Nonetheless, I must first commend that the staff, Dimitriswas definitely very friendly and helpful.
However, the facilities were very disappointing. We booked the Atlantis Suites, which i think was an overstatement, they were nothing like suites, more like a backpacker hostel.
When the booking condition stated that the "pictures provided differ from the rooms", they really mean it.
Firstly, the professional pictures provided were very misleading as they showed the pool overlooking the Cauldra, however we could see nothing when in the pool (and its nothing like a pool, just a small jacuzzi).
The room, yes was overlooking the ocean but with very annoying wire poles sticking out right in the middle of your view.
And worst of all, THE STEPS. we had to lug our 2 luggage not knowing there were SO MANY STEPS! steep steps in fact.
So you either not bring such a big bag or better pay someone to help you with them.
And there were endless visits from the ants on the beds, yes. They just keep coming.
Thats not it, the bathroom was terribly small. There weren't even anywhere I could think of to hang my toiletry bag and you can't have a proper shower without getting the whole bathroom soaked. The bathroom constantly has a musty smell, probably due to the condition of the water. And, the oversized shower curtain which is draped all over the floor.
Santorini is a gorgeous place and I must say I've regretted booking this room for my stay. I could've enjoyed the place better if I made a wiser choice.
