Getting Hotels at the Dock

I've been to Santorini the past two summers and plan on going again this June. On both occasions I've come in early June and had no trouble finding budget hotels once I stepped off the ferry. I was so overwhelmed by the hotel owners bargaining with me that I did not know which one to go with. Both times I chose budget hotels based on double occupancy with a friend. The first in Perissa and the second in Thira. Both hotels cost 15 euros per person and were definitely budget but at the same time clean and liveable. My question is... Has anybody had this same experience and been offered a caldera view hotel? I would love to get a place with the amazing view but I believe given the overwhelming amount of hotel rooms available and the high vacancy rate during the low season, it would most likely not be necessary to book in advance online at full price. If anybody knows the going "dock rate" for a caldera view room in early June please let me know. Thanks

The sad fact is that Scirocco is as far down if not farther down the cliff than Keti.

Check the Villa Ilias, it's near to the footpath between Fira and Firostefani so there will be fewer steps.

Sorry, I don't know Heraklion.

on the port you can to find some owners smaull ''rooms to let'' BUT NO Room on caldera.

the room for sale on port is bunget-camping and only from perissa- karterados-kato fira and is owners without contract with some tours operators.

anyway DONT WAIT to find on port owner of room or hotel in caldera.
