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!

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... More

it was the second time we stayed at Smaro's Studios, the first time being in 2009. And are we glad we did: the same hospitality, the same excellent rooms with a homely feeling yet modernly equipped. And the views....oh, the views! having our breakfast on the veranda infront of our room, and looking at the breath-taking scenery made our holiday... More

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. Every morning the kind lady served us a very good breakfast with the comfort and privacy... More

We were SO happy with our choice to stay at Smaro Studios. We believe this location to be the best on the island. You don't need to go searching for a restaurant from which to watch the sunset, because you have the perfect spot right on your own private balcony! Firostefani is close enough to Fira to walk there in... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights whilst on the islands, our room was spacious clean and we were welcomed with sweet wine, fruit, fridge with water, coke and peanuts. Breakfast was lovely and a credit to Maria who is hard working and more than accommodating to her guests needs. We had a lovely balcony that over looked Santorini... More

My husband and I decided to do a quick side trip to Santorini during a family vacation... the perks of having in-laws that travel with you. I struggled to find a location that wasn't grossly over-priced until I found Smaro Studios. The reviews on Expedia and Tripadvisor both were really high and the guest pictures proved this place was worth... More

The hotel is located between Fira and Imerovigli which gives you easy access to both of the area. The breakfast is brought directly to your room which you can enjoy not only the breakfast but at the same time enjoy the beautiful caldera view as well. The staff are very friendly and helpful and they arranged everything nicely for us.

We expected a room with a god view of the caldera, but we got a partial view. The room did not have much charm. A so-so breakfast is served in the morning, but you have to ask for it. We chose to stay in Firostefani, due to its proximity to Fira, but Imerovigli (where we stayed a couple of times... More
