Hotel location is perfect and is 10 minutes walk from Fira. Amazing sunset and caldera view. Fira is the centre if Santorini and wherever u need to go, if u want to save some money and talk public transport which is perfect and cheaper than other EU countries then Head over to Fira bus stop.

We have been trying to email or call someone from the property for over 2 months and they won't pick up or respond. I get it -- they are closed, but most owners are doing what they can to communicate. We all really wish for any communication, any at all. I really don't do business with companies that don't respond!

Santorini isn't complete if you don't stay in one of those picture perfect hotels overlooking a perfect sunset over the Aegean Sea. You know, the kind you see in films or travel magazines. Fortunately, Smaro Studios is one such place.Caldera view from the private balcony is marvelous.Not to mention the heavenly view of the sunset! The rooms seem straight out from fairytales, with each having a little sweet eccentricity about it. One might have rock from the hills protruding out from the walls, the other might have the bed made out of a slab of rock itself. Some rooms even have private balconies where they serve you a breakfast fit for royalty. And of course, a special mention for Mike who made sure our last day was perfect. He helped us plan out our airport transfer which was to be during the wee hours of morning the day after and also made sure that we had a packed breakfast for the trip too. Excellent gesture! I must also mention the complimentary snacks,Wine and fruits they provide at the time of arrival.And also the complimentary elaborate breakfast.Homemade and delicious. If possible,will come back again definitely.

Lots of research before we selected Smaro. Liked the history of the family It has a fantastic location and for the price paid you will find it difficult to better. Breakfast is so filling,kept the cakes back for afternoon Coffee and Ouzo. Great people who work very hard to make your stay memorable. Smaro is very quiet at night and the views are so breathtaking. So so pleased we stayed here and the memory will last forever.

We stayed at Smaro Studios for four nights during our visit to Santorini. We had the studio "Georgio" with private ocean front terrace in front of our room. The view of the caldera was most amazing, exactly like the one shown in pictures. I believe Georgio is the only room with completely private terrace. Studio isn't very large but big enough for a couple and nicely furnished as shown in the pictures on the web site. Breakfast was served every morning in our private terrace. We are vegetarians and they made sure that everything was vegetarian. Everyday we were served different items including most amazing Greek yogurt, orange juice, bread, pastry, coffee, fruits, olives, and feta. We could not have asked for anything more. The owner is very thoughtful and provided us breakfast the night before we were going to leave since we had to checkout at 5:30 AM. He even asked bellman to come-in at 5:30AM to help with the luggage. It would have been really difficult for us to carry our heavy suitcase up and down many stairs. We were provided with fruits, nuts, beer, soda, and local favorite wine Vin Santo as a welcome gift upon arrival. They even refilled the wine decanter daily. Best part of the Smaro is the sunset views. We enjoyed watching sunset every evening in peace and quiet of our own terrace without being trampled-on in Oia's maddening crowds. Smaro's location in Firostefani is most ideal, close to many restaurants but away from craziness of Oia and Fira. We had great time here will definitely be back.
