Chose to stay in or near Firostefani; this hotel fit what I needed. Balcony gave me a nice view to the east; fifty yards around a building gave me the caldera view. A good series of restaurants to choose from and a couple of bodegas up the alley going north. Fira within walking distance. I don't think I'd hike uphill with my baggage but it was fine walking with it down to the bus station. Local bus arrives within just feet of the hotel. If this is the area you want to stay in, it's a good choice. Clean and convenient.
This villa offer basic stay with no breakfast but its location cannot be faulted. Perfect location: bus stops right in front of the villa. The market is just behind it, and the spuvenir shop, restaurant taverns are just as the same row as the market. The view... breathtaking. Worth every penny. I will definitely stay again.
Lovely villa in the perfect location in santorini, 10 minute walk to Fira, very clean and beautiful view from the balcony. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend and come back again
We had left it very late to book accommodation for Santorini and we stumbled across villa fontini online. To be honest, I was a little nervous due to the pictures. But I had read that it had been recently renovated so I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. When we arrived we were blown away. Firstly, Maria (the lady at reception) is SO nice and helpful. Then she brought us to our room. It is fabulous! Its super clean and even has a cave shower. The best part about this hotel is the location. It's a 10 min walk to fira (the main tourist area). And it also have some lovely restaurants around the hotel so you don't even need to go to to the touristy area. The hotel is situated on the walking route between fira and oia and it has some beautiful views on your doorstep. It also has a bus stop at its front door. This place really is a hidden gem! Thank you Maria for your gorgeous hospitality and very welcoming smile…
We stayed here just for our first night in Santorini, and it was perfectly located for our needs. They provided a free shuttle from the airport, despite our plane not arriving till past 21:30. We were then able to have a nice walk around the area (just 15 minutes walk to Fira with stunning views). Then we are able to continue our journey to Oia the next day, which is where we were going to spend the majority of our holiday. We had the room on the second floor with a balcony - and there was nothing to complain about at all. Everything was clean and comfortable and perfect for us.
