I stayed at Hotel Aethrio with a large group of people this past September. The location of the hotel is great, right in the center of everything. Good restaurants, shops and cafes are within walking distance.
The hotel itself has an eclectic collection of rooms. They are all vastly different from each other. Our room was huge with a loft for the beds. However, it was oddly arranged. There wasn't a close or bureau for clothes. There was just a small wooden wardrobe in the center of the living room, which made it hard to unpack and get dressed conveniently. Our shower overflowed pretty much every day and ran into the small little kitchenette. On a plus side, we had a small little courtyard with chairs to ourselves. Some of the others in our group had rooms with balconies (and closets) that were much more comfortable. I would recommend going for one of those rooms.
The beds aren't the most comfortable. We had too small single beds in our room. The rooms are a great option if traveling with groups or families- not great for couples.
The hotel is charming with really interesting architecture. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean in the rooms and in the public areas. The pool area is very pretty and relaxing; the water was still warm in September.
There were two large terraces with fantastic views of Santorini and the water. You can take your coffee or drinks up there and watch the sunrise or sunset. That was the highlight of this hotel.
