“5 star location? Definitely....5 star service? Not so much...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

You've seen the photos...you wowed at the white and blue colours cascading down the hills into the beautiful sea....Oia will not disappoint...Santorini's calderas are phenomenal...and Oia is its best offering...
Art Maisons sits on top of the highest vantage point at Oia, the view from every part of the hotel is breathtaking...getting there is a 45 minute easy drive from the airport (book a shared limo), then a short walk and a few stairs away, the world is literally under your feet....you will gasp when you first walk down the steps to the hotel, and then every time you come in and out...
Service is friendly, from manager to waitress to housekeeping to utility...Anna, Pauline, Daniella and Sami made our stay that much more special...
Our cave pool suite was nice, room service is not available which was disappointing, and the TV is
not in the bedroom, it is with the couch at the entrance of the room and not visible, the walk down the cave to the WC is annoying at night but you get used to it...our cave pool was a disappointment, it is overrated as it is indoor, we had expected the outdoor one which was in room 106 as opposed to 105...Breakfast is fine, not great...we heard they were changing the chef...
The common area on the roof boasts a jacuzzi and sun beds...and best of all it overlooks both sides of the island...simply unbelievable views all around...
Bring your own snacks and you will love spending a couple of hours in the common area just basking in the sun and taking this spectacular view in...
Even though the final minutes of the famous Santorini sunset are not visible from Art Maisons, the colours that it creates are stunning...Anna gave us the best recommendations for activities and made sure our stay is memorable...
Would we go again? To Oia? YES
To Art Maisons....maybe, if we get 106 and if they elevate services to become more than the wonderful personal touch of the team at the hotel...
As is...not great value for money....

Room Tip: There are 8 rooms in total....Room 1 is the highest and best view with very nice terrace...Room 5 an...

We splurged one night and stayed in this lovely place. It was literally like a dream. The cave suite was extremely roomy with a couch, kitchenette, private balcony with hot tub.. We wished we had splurged more nights and stayed here our entire stay in Santorini. I read on Travel Advisor to stay away from cave suites as they can feel "claustrophobic" without windows and such. Our room had several windows - one right next to the bed so we could lay there and see the ocean. It was brilliant. We had an in-room refrigerator and ice maker. Complimentary champagne for our first sunset. Spectators outside of our room who were there viewing the sunset saw the two of us in the hot tub with our champagne and commented on how ridiculously amazing our situation was. It truly was! In addition, the hotel staff was incredible. Well organized with a porter to carry our luggage up and down (he was a dream!). Also, our breakfast which was complimentary was delicious! We had croissants, omelets, fruit, coffee, orange juice.. the works! Will definitely come again! xo

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a private balcony and hot tub. I believe every room overlooks the ocean and...

We loved staying here; we were highly impressed with everything from our fully private and spacious balconies, unbelievable views, prime location, peaceful atmosphere, interior design, personal cook, etc ..We stayed in the “Endless Blue” and “Atmospherico” suites. I can’t tell which one is better .. I am writing my many thanks to Daniela, the cooks and all the hotel stuff for the personalised attention and service.
This place was over our regular hotel budget, but it was well worth the spent; and if I am back in Santorini, would not look for anything else.

Room Tip: “Endless Blue” is the top suite “Atmospherico” is one level below these two are the best rooms

Location of the Oia Castle Hotel has to be among the best in Santorini. You can see famous Oia sunset from your own terrace, something that everyone on the island come to see to the same place - Oia Castle - or nearby. 
Olympic suite was really nice. Quite spacious, must be over 100 m2 with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, big living room and an indoor pool. Kitchen had an oven, a big fridge and an espresso machine. Microwave oven was missing as also all accessories to make food such as cattles, pans, etc.
Two-storey terrace was nice, lower one to have a breakfast out (big table also in the living room) and higher level for sunbath and looking for the sunset.
Breakfast was pre-ordered day before, and to be honest, it was quite pathetique. They should outsource it to some of the good restaurants nearby, or at least offer such as an option. Coffee had to be made by yourself.
Otherwise everything worked as it should.

We loved staying here. Everyone was so helpful and we couldn't have picked a more perfect spot for a romantic sunset view. The hotel staff was so nice and even upgraded us into a nicer suite! There were a lot of stairs near the hotel and the hotel staff was so helpful in moving our bags. was so nice and helpful, even offering to drive us to Fira at night. Oia is a great place to stay in my opinion. If you wait a more romantic, quieter experience I would stay in Oia. If you are in your 20s and want to party stay in Fira. Our room, the Marine Deluxe Suite was nice with a direct view of the sunset. With a hot tub on a private balcony just down a set of stairs was great for a private way off the crowded streets to watch the sunset. With the hotel's amazing view of the sunset people line up around and near the hotel to watch the sunset. However, the balcony is tucked away far enough away to give you some privacy.

I did my fair share of search for hotels before booking and choosing Art Maisons proved to be the right choice.
Thank you Lee at Trip Advisor for suggesting this small property for our honeymoon.
Except for the amazing location facilities and designs i mostly enjoyed the staff both at the castle and the aspaki,always happy to assist.

it is slightly confusing when trying to reserve Art maisons so we called the reservations. A pleasant and most helpful lady explained in full details the main difference between the aspaki and the castle and we ended up in the aspaki, the newly renovated one.
when we arrived we were greeted by the driver and brought to ia, a bellboyed assisted us with luggage and shortly we were escorted to our cave pool suite.
our suite had a cave pool carved in the cliff overlooking the sea, the suite was very minimal with natural colors and designs, very spacious bathrooms, very good wifi connection, bith in the room and the balcony and excellent service. Let me start with the breakfast, very delicious, well presented and correctly served by a young lovely girl with french accent. Our suite was cleaned twice a day and the balcony area was cleaned twice a day by a very decent and friendly man.All our questions and travel arrangements were organized by the front desk, there were two lovely girls always happy and patient.Once we went to the castle for sunset and we enjoyed it very much. Do not miss the boat cruises around the island, simply amazing.

Room Tip: i did see two of the other suite types and i think the exclusive ones are the most private and upsca...
