“What a view!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

So how good is this hotel? It's just out of Fira so we had a car allowing us to see the island and eat out. Adelyna who seems to run the place, seems to appear out of nowhere, always smiling & always very helpful. We booked a 2 bedroom suite overlooking the volcano. The rooms were a good size and furnished in the usual modern Greek style. A bit bohemian chic. The stairs need a handrail as they are quite dangerous. This is not a room for small children. Breakfast was excellent. We ate one evening meal there which was poor. Ate out the rest of the time. But the view is spectacular. Prices for the suite varied from web site to web site so shop around before booking.

Room Tip: I would not stay here unless you go for a room with a view of the Caldera.

First, we landed at this hotel by accident. We had booked into another hotel for Oct 2012 and they closed for the season and sent us to La Maltese. Lucky Lucky Lucky! The location is FAB - beautiful caldera view and Imerovigli is a lovely walk or a short bus/cab to Fira, and just far enough away to be off the cruise passenger path. The rooms/suites are lovely. And I should know - we stayed in 3 of them. We had reserved a junior suite at the other hotel, and there wasn't one available for our first night. We got a perfectly fine room. Large, big bed, nice bathroom. For night two, we move to a jr suite. Bedroom and sitting room, 4 poster bed, even nicer bathroom. As a perk for having to move, they offered us a senior suite for the last two nights. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, and a view of the caldera. Amazing! Who could resist!?! So are you thinking, sure, but having to pack and unpack...Well, we didn't. They did. Twice. Right down to my wet bathing suite hanging in the shower. This is the level of service you will get from Adelyna and Alex. They took care of everything.
And for a couple of foodies we could not have landed in a better spot. Adelyna knew every good local restaurant, made reservations, arranged transportation and then took the time to get our feedback on each locale. Alex remembered how I liked my drinks, talked to us about fun siteseeing spots and made sure we had everything we needed.
Would I go back? In a heartbeat.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, but splurge for a caldera view if you can. It's worth it.

We stayed at the hotel in August 2012.

The views were amazing! You can not have better location and views over the caldera!
The staff was accommodating, very helpful and we had a personal service. We felt spoilt!

The breakfast menu was very good, the rooms very spacious, and clean.

The plants though on the terraces could do with a bit of care ...

On the negative side, there was a jacuzzi bath empty and it seemed out of order on the terrace which spoilt the view bit.

Overall however a great experience ande service.

To our "Angel" Adelyna and Alex,

Our stay with you at La Maltese was nothing short of heaven! We arrived at the estate and were swept away by warm greetings, perfect service, and amazing views. Breakfast on the veranda was a treat as Alex remembered our orders and names flawlessly. Adelyna suggested wonderful local restaurants, sights to see, and setup the most amazing massage with their beautiful spa. She booked a sailing trip around the caldera for my friends and I that we shall never forget!

To the special efforts that La Maltese took to return our camera that was left in the rental car, we hope that our story of your kindness in returning our memories reaches all travelers! Thank you from all of us! We appreciate the time and amazing customer service that you put forth. La Maltese is nothing short of first class service, serenity, and ensuring patrons the highest quality of service in all aspects of their stay.

We hope to see you again,
Holli, Deborah, Kirsten, and Ken

Room Tip: The sea side rooms provide stunning views and privacy.

We stayed one week late Octobre and we will remember it for quite some time !!!

Alexander and Adelina run this hotel perfectly! Thanks a lot again to them both for their very attentive care. They know a lot about the island and will organize everything for you (boat trip, horse ridding, quad rental...).

The hotel only has 9 rooms that makes it very intimate and for breakfast or for the rest like at the swimming pool you almost have the impression that you are alone and that everything is dedicated to you. For the rooms we got upgraded with no charge to the deluxe semi private pool and the room was almost perfect. Bathrooms are quite old but functionnal and the hotel is going to renovate them this winter.

The food is very nice, we almost had all diners at the hotel since you would not find better view and a lot of restaurants around or in the capital are very touristic and quite as expensive for definitely lower quality. The breakfast "à la carte" at La Maltese Estate is gorgeous, you can ask for anything.

Room Tip: We were told that all the rooms will be renovated this winter. We initially got the standard room wh...

We were received in the most wonderful way by Adelyna and Alex. They continued throughout our 5 day stay to be more than helpful, friendly and warm. We had a dream vacation thanks to them and the unbelievable location of the hotel overlooking the sea. The meals were elegant and tailor made to our needs. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We changed rooms once because of the internal stairs in our room leading up to the bed and found it...

I had my wedding at la Maltese on the 5th October this year! It was the most amazing and memorable day. My wedding planner worked very closely with la Maltese to organise everything absolutely perfectly!

The staff if la Maltese were polite and extremely efficient! Even when I asked them to change around the tables for my reception! This was done no questions asked! The hotel manager met with my family an Michael when he brought us to see the venue. She was able to accommodate everything I asked for and more! The staff throughout the day and into the evening were amazing! If anything was broken they were into it within seconds! The bar was fabulous and always on the go! They provided me with such a fabulous venue for my wedding! The view was amazing and the only thing letting the view down was the telephone wires and the tunnel to the left... Both of which la Maltese couldn't help! And when you are being looked after to the standard we were, this does not matter!

We also spent the wedding night at the hotel (our guests travelled back to where we were holidaying) the hotel room was beautiful and the view from the balcony was fabulous! We also stayed for breakfast the next day which had everything on the menu you would want!

Thank you to la Maltese for such an amazing wedding day and night!

Room Tip: We choose the least expensive room as we were also paying for a wedding! But we could not complain...
