We had a week here in October and thought the whole place was just great!
The room we had, Notos, on the first floor (all are named after Greek winds) had just the most perfect view. We had our breakfast every morning on the balcony in the sun watching the ship activity in the bay and a glass of wine watching the sunset in the evening.
The service was exceptional and room service unbeliveable, with a change of towels twice a day.
The location, just on the edge of busy Fira town, is very good too as it is just a short walk away from the bustle and noise of all the cruise ship visitors, but ideally placed to walk into town or to the bus station for a trip to another part of the island.
The only slight criticism I would have is that the noise of the donkeys being led down to the port woke us up in the morning, but it is worth putting up with this for the otherwise superlative Aigialos!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Aigialos Collection consists of sixteen, renovated neoclassical houses that were originally the fine homes of the island's noble captain families. The architecture and design of the houses bring to life the traditional way of life of the island's nobility. Restored to perfection by master masons using local volcanic stone and coloured lime plaster, the houses are linked by cobbled walkways. Situated on the rim of the caldera, sheer cliffs that rise from the sea, the hotel overlooks the island's famed volcano. ... more less
