This small property in the cluster at Firostefani with wonderful views was a good choice. The staff took good care of us with a nice breakfast on our little terrace and kept the room clean. Furnishings are quaint but could use a chest of drawers so we could unpack. The shower could have a better enclosure and a hook above...

This hotel has absolutely incredible views of Santorini. We got the central unit that has the split level with the bedroom upstairs in a loft and the kitchen and living room area downstairs. The front double door opens up to an incredible view of the water below and islands beyond. A little patio with table and chairs outside offer a...

The breakfast was very good and we had a welcome bottle of local wine vinsanto. There is also a small jacuzzi with very nice...

We stayed for a couple of days at Smaro studios during our recent trip to Santorini. First things first, the caldera views from every room/balcony is just stunning. One of the best sunsets I saw during the trip was from our private terrace at Smaro studios! We stayed in room Dimitris on the ground floor which was very spacious and...

The hotel is located in a Firostefani neighborhood on the island. This is the perfect location to stay. The bus service to Oia is just a minute walk from the hotel. Very close to the hike to Oia via the Caldera. Plenty and fresh breakfast everyday was the highlight of our stay. We were welcomed with a nice Vinsanto wine....

My family of 4 enjoyed our time at this charming family run hotel. The warmth of the staff was amazing and the breakfast on the terrace every morning was incredible. We enjoyed our walks into Fira, but loved the quiet of being just outside of town. Great location, would stay again for sure!

Firostefani is the perfect place to stay on the island and smaro is not so far down the mountain yet has exceptional views. Even if you get a terrace view room there are tables on the roof available to anyone to enjoy breakfast or sunset on. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh, the room was clean and cozy! Photos are exactly...

We stayed here our whole time in Santorini. We had the top room and an absolutely breathtaking view of the Caldera. It was an incredible location, quiet but still close to everything. Every morning a large breakfast would be brought to our balcony so that we could eat and look out over the Caldera before starting out day. Very kind...

We booked Studio Andrea's with Caldera view, the scenery took our breath away! Sky was so blue and little ships cruising away into the distance..the room was small but beautiful equipped with kitchen facilities and free amenities like local wine and fruit and nuts.
