“Good central location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

The Nissos Thira is located on a busy street but it quiets down at night. Our room was located at the back of the property on the second floor. There was a balcony which looked out to the pool area and a glimpse of the sea. The room itself was quite large if not a bit sterile. Double doors went out to the balcony. The bathroom was small with a minute shower stall. The mattress was very hard and we tried making it more comfortable by putting the spare blanket under the sheet. The whole place was clean and bright. The reception area has seating which extends to the outside.
The reception personnel where very nice and helpful. We requested a kettle for the room and extra pillows which were brought without hesitation.
Breakfast was adequate, tea, coffee, toast, jam, canned fruit and yoghurt.
The pool area was clean but no extra towels, I did not ask and there are numerous sunbeds.
The hotel is about 5 minutes walk to the bus station which is handy for other towns on Sanotorini. To visit the touristy area, shops, restaurants etc and get a view of the Aegean it is about 10 minutes walk up the hill. There is a fridge in the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool.

Owner Rosso manages the cozy boutique hotel with his children at the center of Thira yet away from the busy street. Place is clean, warm and bright. Rooms are clean and secure. All-you-can-eat Continental breakfast is included. Great value. Will surely come back again.

This friendly family run hotel was perfect for my friend and I. It was perfectly located, a really short walk from the heart of Fira and all the restaurants, shops and bars. The room was spacious, with a lovely view of the pool and the sea, and it was just up the road from a main bus station that went to all the key areas you would want to visit. Couldn't have picked a better spot. It is also small and quiet, with a lovely pool and a relaxed breakfast each morning - we were really surprised that it didn't have more stars!

Our 2 nights here were great. The room and bathroom were large and clean, the balcony spacious with direct access to the lovely pool. The hotel had a lovely holiday feel about it with several places to relax and was central,a short walk from buses, shopping, restaurants and the caldera. Staff were friendly, professional and helpful. Breakfast was good. We look forward to our next stay here.

This hotel is located right on the main drag of Fira. Motorcycles, cars and tour buses rumble by at all hours. The staff is apathetic at best. The wireless is very spotty on all of Santorini, but when it does work it's fine. The decor looks like it was updated in 1992. They served canned fruit with the breakfast. The pool only gets sunshine for part of the day, as the hotel is surrounded by other buildings. The shower curtain is completely redundant. The only bonus of this place is a delightful restaurant next door that serves home made food.

I highly recommend this hotel for anyone. There were singles, couples, friends staying at the hotel and everyone enjoyed it. The location can not be beat for the price. 65 euros for a less than five minute walk into the center of Fira. There was a great pool for relaxing to get away from the crowded streets when the cruise ships come in. The staff were helpful and very welcoming answering all of our many questions about what to see/do on the island. Room was HUGE with a balcony overlooking the pool area. Very clean and well maintained. It is not on the caldera but like I said 5 minutes you are right there. Breakfast could have have had more options but it was sufficient. Had bread, fruit, ham, cheese, yogurt, pound cake, cereal. Also located 5 minute walk to the bus station which takes you anywhere on the island you want to go including the port. Everywhere being less than 3 euros a person. Would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony I believe.
