“Great stay”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Amazing experience. The owner was extremely helpful and genuinely kind, and even offered us the breakfast, twice. The view from the bedroom's (big) balcony was beyond words; especially for such an affordable price. Room was nothing to write home about but did the job just fine. Will definitely recommend it to friends. If you're on a tight budget, this is the best place in town. Just wonderful all around.

The rooms were small, not terribly clean and smelled generally of pee. The bed was horribly uncomfortable and gave my partner a mild rash. Having said that, the view of the Caldera was fantastic from the balcony and they delivered a delicious breakfast to your room (we ate on the balcony while watching the cruise ships). It is many, many stairs to the main part of Fira so not suitable if this would be a problem for you.

The location is perfect. You will have a perfect terrace/balcony with the most incredible view ever. It is a pleasure to enjoy the sunset from your room. It is very close by feet to the center of Fira.
The rooms from the inside are simple, but nice and big. With a little investment the place could be perfect. The best thing is the balcony and the view. The breakfast is simple but good and the nice thing is that is served in your own balcony.
The service was great. They’ve picked us up from the port for free and the arrangement was very easy to do, just sending a mail 2 days before. The staff is super nice and friendly.

120€ for a twin room very close to the center of Fira with the amazing view Caldera studios offers is an incredible bargain.
Many thanks to the hostess and staff who surpassed all my expectations and made this a trully memorable stay.
If I have to say something negative it would be the number of stairs to reach the hotel. Make sure you call when you arrive so the staff can help you with your luggage.
Highly recommended, thanks for everything Koula.

Being a group of 8 photographers, we were really fuzzy about where we stayed in Santorini. We wanted the best location, sunset from our balcony and a helpful host! Well we all agreed that our stay with Koula at Calera Studios was the BEST of our Greek holiday, with the BEST location, BEST views and the most helpful Hostess one could ever ask for. An example was when we asked a taxi driver where was the best location for sunset in Fira, he said go down the stairs infront of the main church, walk along the path till you get the best view! I said WOW! that is just where we are staying, so we asked Koula and she ordered the most amazing selection of Mezethes (finger food) for so cheap and we sat on our balcony, Ouzo, nibbles and got the most stunning sunset shots! Thank you Koula Pedro and Afrodite and amazing staff, We just want to come back soon!! Julie PHil Steve Jayne Julie Steve Cathy and Geoff

We stayed here for 4 nights last month. Koule and her staff were extremely caring and helpful in all ways. we feel that we have left great friends. The rooms are clean and of a good size. The views are amazing. The spa is a welcome relief at the end of the day. we would not only recommend this as a great place for others to stay but will stay there again ourselves. Beware of the stairs LOL they are everywhere. Go Stay and have Fun. To Koule, Christos and Aphrodite Yamos and thank you.

We have just returned from a four night stay at the Caldera Studios and cannot recommend it enough. It was fabulous! Koula, the lady in charge of the running of Caldera Studios was so helpful as were everyone who worked there. Our room overlooked the Caldera and the view was breathaking. The room was kept spotless. The hot tub was lovely for cooling off. The location is perfect with lots of restaurants and bars nearby. Already planning to go back next year. Loved it!
