The hotel, the views, the location overlooking the volcano, the staff were perfect. The hotel is a five minute walk to the center of Fira and were it located in the center it would be a lot busier in the bar. The included breakfast was a great meal to start the day. A very nice assortment of food and more than ample food. Our room had everything we needed and had the nicest character, it was the blue vine room and we couldn't have asked for more. It had an outdoor seating area under a pergola that had vines of grapes covering the pergola. The staff is attentive to every need and arranged all. You need only ask and they were on it. You will not be disappointed staying here!
I would suggest making arrangements with Rigas, the manager, for pick up to the hotel as you will have trouble finding the place and you need help from the staff to bring your luggage down the path from the road if you have more than 2 pieces or its heavy. The entrance to the hotel is on the path connecting Fira and Firostefani about a 3 minute walk from where the car drops you off.
