Gorgeous views and sunsets!! Hotel owner is so nice and helpful. He gave us fantastic advice regarding day trips so our stay was perfect. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and comfortable. I enjoyed the steep and winding path to the hotel more every time I walked it. My sister lost 5 lbs. just walking around so much. One of the best places I have ever stayed!!

We stayed here on our honeymoon this year and originally booked the standard double room. When we got there they said that a double room only comes with twin beds!!. So we paid extra and upgraded to a cave room with an actual double bed. It was on the lowest level of the hotel on the slope of the mountain, so much more private. Perfect for honeymooners. The view each morning and night was amazing! We had a perfect view of the sunset from our balcony. No need to go to Oia to see it. Our balcony was shared with the other room on our level but we rarely saw the other guests. The bedroom and bathroom were both very spacious and clean. Only 2 negatives: 1 - The bed sheets were poor quality and were so noisy every time we moved. It sounded like were were sleeping on plastic/waterproof material. Very annoying. 2 - The shower was over the bath but with no screen or curtains. So, whenever we used the shower it would spray/splash everywhere leaving a large amount of water all over the floor tiles. But apart from these two things everything else was a huge positive. The staff were so courteous and helpful. The breakfast was ok, enough to start the day with. Only 6euros in total for 2 people so definitely worth getting everyday as you won't find it cheaper anywhere else! The hotel even arranged for a porter to take our bags back up the steep steps to the top of the hill where the taxis are. For 20euros this was definitely money well spent as it wouldn't have been an easy climb with our heavy luggage. In terms of proximity to the main areas in Fira, Hotel Keti is about a 5 minute walk away, and 10 minutes to the cable cars. It's also a 20 minute drive to the airport, and a 20 minute drive to the main seaport where you can board ferries to other islands. The hotel was a little hard to find but that made it all the more special because you almost feel like one of the locals as you walk down the narrow winding steps to get there. It's like a beautiful little hideaway. Overall, this hotel was great value for money and I would recommend it to all.

The hotel is located about 5 minutes away from the main street. Don’t expect a flat road, it took quite a lot of steps to reach there as it is just right next to the cliff. It worth the walk as the view from the room is stunning, be it morning, sunset, or night, you’ll just love it. I just love sitting at the balcony with the breezing wind.

The room is clean but the bed is a bit hard. Reception is helpful and provides lots of info. Lower your expectation on hotel breakfast then you’ll be OK with it, else, find somewhere else to eat.
Sphinx restaurant at the main street would be good for sunset dinner, but make sure you have a reservation, it is usually fully booked (Eg. book your dinner in the afternoon).

The hotel might be a bit difficult to find at first, it is not on the map, but there’s a sign near the Hotel Atlantis.

Located on the cliff of Fira, the best thing about Hotel Keti is the stunning view of the ocean and the Volcano island. The hotel is a bit difficult to find in the beginning, but once I found my way to the hotel, it's actually situated in a convenient location which is close to the bus station (to ports, Oia, and beaches), Carrefour, and the town centre. All the rooms have direct access to the shared balcony which I had enjoyed my breakfast there every morning and a glass of wine during the sunset! The room is clean, and the bathroom is spacious. I really enjoy my stay there, and highly recommended.

We have enjoyed our stay at Keti hotel and absolutely no complain. Rooms are remodeled and are spacious. Frankly the sun sets at the balcony is just as good as any points in the island. Hotel is clean and great for the money. Breakfast is not included and cost 6 Euro per person. Otherwise highly recommended.

Fabulous, quaint family-owned hotel in center of Fira, built right into the cliffs of Santorini, with just the most unbelievable, fantastic views of the caldera. Lots of balconies and steps -- so you should be at least a little fit to stay at Hotel Keti but well worth it!! It was definitely the best place we stayed in Greece according to my 18 yr old niece-- who we took here for her graduation present. She wanted someplace authentically Greek. My sister, niece and I Loved our stay here in August 2012 -- the staff and owner were very helpful and friendly. They gave us lots of ideas for getaways and beaches to visit. The hotel is also very close to all the clubs, shopping and action in Fira. The continental breakfast at the Keti is also good-- served right on the balconies overlooking the sea. I can't say enough good things about Hotel Keti!!!

We had great expectation from Santorini and Keti hotel. We were NOT disappointed! The view could not have been better. Outstanding to say the least. Really gorgeous and you won’t believe your eyes. Santorini is already a nice place, but from the multi-levelled balconies of this hotel it gets better. We stayed 3 nights in August. It was hot, but bearable. Yes, there are steps up and down, which you might need a break if not that fit, but really worth it. Hotel staff carried our bags up and down. We were fortunate enough to get the double bed room number 9 which had a private balcony, where we could seat at our leisure, enjoy our wine and cheese while we were having the best sunset of our lives. There is plenty of space on balconies to enjoy the view. The breakfast outside with the view outweighs the limited options. People in Keti are friendly and helpful. They gave us all information and bookings necessary. We do recommend hiring a quad bike for at least one day to drive around.
This is unpretentious, clean, small hotel with outstanding views and good price. We do recommend for couples of all ages as the whole environment is very romantic.
