I arrived late and had some trouble finding the hotel since it's nestled between store fronts.
Cleanliness and the breakfast were the real pluses of the hotel. The balcony is also a nice feature (I had a private but some are shared so try to specify when you book) and a great way to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Breakfast was always very prompt.
Although this hotel doesn't have a pool, I was able to use the pool at their sister property. It's only a few minutes walk from Theoxenia and well worth it.
If I returned to Santorini, Theoxenia would not be my first choice of hotels. This is primarily because of one staff member (all the others were great, especially Kris) and the noise. Although the noise was greatly diminished when I closed the windows, I could still hear loud, drunk people, store owners vacuuming in the morning and rolling luggage along the cobblestone (horrible at 6:00 am when the overnight ferries arrive).
Net-net, it's sort of a trade-off... location is convenient but noisy, balcony is nice but you might have to share it, access to pool but you have to go to another hotel.
The price was reasonable (at least in April), just be prepared for a few of the downsides mentioned in this review. Regardless, I'm sure you'll fall in love with Santorini!
