Caldera Studios
Ranked #31 of 52 Fira B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 5, 2013

we went there last week, yes an advantage in term of privacy cuz it was not a high season time. Caldera studio offers really clean and spacious room. Koula upgraded us to triple room with the biggest balconi instead of the on we booked. IN fact she agreed to extend our stay for the same price! She is the coolest and warmest owner we have met.
The room and balconi were clean, we can feel a unique deco of santorinians. And the chance to watch sunset from our own room is priceless.
About the stairs, i didnt really mind about them. In fact i miss the view of horizon while going up and down to caldera studio.
The location is perfect, about 10 mins walk to cabel car and also to bus stop and fira centre.
what else can u ask. I rate my stay as perfect! :) tq Koula for great hospitality

Since it is not high season, there were not many people in this hotel. But facilities were all good and the owner was very kind to me. I like it.

We visited Santorini for just the 1 night on a busy multi cycladic island trip late aug/sept of this year. Koula was an excellent host and looked after us so well.

The room was lovely and the views from the balcony simply stunnning and so peaceful. Yes indeed there are steps to handle but well worth the effort.

Free pick up to and from the port and suitcases transported back up to street level on departure..

Room Tip: Rooms split over 4 levels hence a further set of stairs the lower the level you are.

Lovely studios and hotel. Great views, just above the port. We received free shuttle from ferry and free shuttles into town. (about a 20 Minute walk). Very clean but staff a little impersonal. Couldnt ask for a better view and clean and tidy rooms.

Room Tip: If you want to stay close to everything this is not the place, but if you want quietness and great v...

Koula and the other staff very friendly and helpful. Just the day before I emailed asking for a pick up from the airport and it was arranged for us very helpfully. This was great as when we arrived in Fira Koula had also arranged for a guy to wheel our cases down the 200 steps and Koula upgraded us to a triple room from double without asking. The balcony was great for pre-dinner drinks and breakfast and the view across the Caldera was breathtaking. The room was very clean and a good size. It was very useful to have a fridge and tea & coffee facilities which is unusual in the Mediterranean. The location was central but nice and quiet at night. Make sure you're fit as there are 200 steps to climb up to Fira each time - great exercise though ! Fira was lovely and a great place to stay in Santorini as there was lots of browsing in shops at night and lots of great tavernas. Also easy to get boat trips from the port there. If you like donkeys this is also the place to come as they were lovely. The hot tub in Caldera Studios was great too ! We would definitely recommend the Caldera Studios to all except maybe not for mature couples due to the number of steps involved although that would apply to most studios and apartments in Fira.

Room Tip: Even if you travel as a couple it might be worth booking a triple room as it was spacious and not m...

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.
