“The hotel that all hotels should aspire too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left Anna and Maria and the rest of the team at the hotel were 'amazing' they were so so helpful, polite, dignified, respectful and couldn't do enough to ensure that our visit to Santorini was all that we wanted it too be.

We had no problems at all and would strongly recommend anyone who is thinking of visiting to do so!!!

Anna and Maria made our trip to Santorini a shear delight from recommending restaurants to eat (and not to eat to at), places to visit, even where to go for a great ice cream!!

We can't thank them enough!!! Much love xxx

The breakfast was amazing! The best! Beats our previous favourite hotel breakfast at the Shangrila in Boracay. Not your regular hotel buffet. Slightly different each day it included: scrambled eggs, various frittatas, salads, tomato fritters, greek cakes, greek yoghurt, fruit etc. All fresh food and made with a great homemade taste. The rest of the menu was just as delicious, we never regretted staying in the hotel for a meal.

Everything else about the hotel was just as delightful. Hotel staff are accommodating and welcoming as soon as you set foot in the front door. We arrived very early in the morning and our room allocation was given top priority, in the mean time we relaxed by the beautiful pool in a cabana and watched the day begin.

We celebrated a significant birthday in the hotel and they delivered an amazing chocolate cake and bottle of wine to our room on request, as well as offer tips on what to do with our time on the island.

We were glad we made the choice to stay in Fira, it was more than easy to get around the island to the different beaches and sites on the local buses, conveniently the bus stop was a 2 min walk down the hill from the hotel.

We can not recommend this hotel enough!!

The people at this hotel make it exceptional. The room was very comfortable with a patio and view. The location is a few steps from the Caldera and easy walk to everything. Special call out to Anna who make reservations for us and check on us daily to make sure everything was good. Breakfast was delicious and fresh. Nice pool but there is so much to do in Santorini that we did not have much time for sunbathing. We found everyone friendly and helpful and would recommend this hotel to all.

Room Tip: Bed was a little hard, my only complaint. Ask for 3rd floor rooms.

We stayed there for two nights during our honeymoon. When we checked in the room was full of flies. Yuck! It is well located in town of Fira and close to view of caldera. Pool was okay, but get there early or you likely won't get a chair in the sun. Breakfast is a little weak on selection. Very close to bus station and ride to Oya. Bed was hard as a rock and room was pretty sparsely furnished.

This is our 4th time staying at the Aressana and it really was just like going home. The staff were so welcoming and as always fantastically accommodating. We actually got our old room back and the service was as superb as always. We have chosen to return to the Aressana each time we have gone back to beautiful Santorini and we will continue to do so.

We have stayed at other hotels throughout the world but the standard set at Aressana is beyond any other accommodation we have ever experienced.

Wonderful hotel, beautiful people we will genuinely miss until our next stay. Thanku Aressana see you soon we hope.

The shape of the suit was a long gallery. Bathrooms were too small and dingy even to brush your teeth. Room service was on paid basis. Was scared to touch to touch anything. Anything could have a price tag. This hotel was as strict as a hostel.

One of the best hotels I have been to. The hotel, service, people, food, spa.. Everything was wonderful. Placed in end of Gold street you have the best placement on the island. The bus stations is only ~100 meters away. Loved the place and would choose this hotel next time on Santorini. No caldera view, but who sit at the hotel and look at the view all the time. This is a wonderful island and exploring it was really amazing.
