The hotel itself is in a very nice and quiet area, away from the noise and huge crowds of tourists, while still being very close to the centre of Fira - just 5 mins. walking distance from the centre and 3 mins walking distance from the bus station, which was great.
The apartment was big and spacious, with a nice terrace to sit outside - it was cleaned meticulously everyday. We rented an apartment with a small kitchenette, very helpful if you wanted to cook your own lunch/dinner. Our apartment had view of the east side of the island (no Caldera view), but even so, the view was absolutely gorgeous.The owners, Mr. Dimitris and his wife, were very friendly and welcoming, we were offered drinks and two big slices of watermelon when we checked in! We were told that we are free to pluck tomatoes and aubergines from the garden - we tried the tomatoes, they were delicious! Mr. Dimitris was really helpful, he picked us up from the bus station and also drove us to a supermarket for our groceries. The apartment complex also has a pool, which we visited almost daily - very relaxing. For the quality offered, the price was a bargain indeed! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay there!
A few negative remarks: You cannot pay with a credit card (cash only) and we only found out about this on the morning of our check-out. The problem was resolved when Mr. Dimitris drove us to the bus station (we were bound to leave for the port), where we could withdraw cash from an ATM - it would have been nice though to have known about this beforehand.
Also, the pool is rather small and shallow (about 1,4 m deep), but it's clean and with many umbrellas/sunbeds surrounding it.
