My wife and I visited the Kastro apartments at the end of May just before the tourist season really gets going. We booked directly through their website and I have to say that we got a fantastic deal. The room was spacious, clean and quiet and the view was out of this world! We we stayed in the Ioni (room 102) suite at the lowest of the three levels of the property and we had the little pool all to ourselves during our stay.
Anna and Natassa brought us our breakfast every morning and served us on our own private patio overlooking the caldera. The breakfast was tasty and filling and they were quite willing to bring more eggs and less toast when we asked. The yogurt was great too!
The location of the hotel is very central in Fira and so it only takes a few minutes to get anywhere, including to the Fira bus station which the central hub for the whole island bus system (we never felt the need to rent a car). The hotel overlooks the donkey trail/ footpath down to the old harbor, so you do hear donkey bells from time to time, but we thought that this was quaint, rather than any kind of annoyance - we even bought a donkey bell to take home.
The only negative was the sound of a disco/bar which carried on for a couple of hours after we went to bed on two nights of our stay. It seems like sound travels really well around the caldera and so it was hard to tell where the sound was coming from. It was certainly not coming from anywhere right next to our hotel, so I am sure that we were not the only property impacted.
All in all my wife and I loved this place and would definitely stay here again if we ever return to Santorini.
