Hotel Keti is down about 100 stairs but worth the trek! :) The hotel is pretty bare bones but has great views. I dont this hotel is the best value I think you could get more for your money but the view is great and it was a nice stay. The room is spacious so if you have a lot of luggage you have room for two travelers and all of their stuff.

location/views - Make sure to arrange for transfers so you don't have to bring up/down your luggage as the flight of stairs going down to the hotel will be a mix of cement and stone so some steps are smooth and others are rather pebbly. (We didn't have a problem looking for the hotel as we arranged for transfers but there are so many hotels in the area so some might probably find it difficult.

If you have walking/fitness issues, you might find the stairs quite unpleasant but this is santorini and this is how most hotels with the caldera view are positioned.

The photos here that were shared by the others are accurate. This hotel has stunning views.

This hotel is near the area where there are other shops and restos.

room - We got a room with twin beds with a shared balcony. We were lucky that the hotel wasn't full at that time being a lean season. The beds/room clean.

bathroom - the bathroom was rather dated in terms of the design. We had an issue with the tub, since usually if it's a shower with a tub, the shower is positioned at either ends of the tub. This was not the case with our tub, the shower was positioned in the middle and everytime we took a bath, our back would hit/stick to the shower curtain! We found this detail badly-planned. The toilet was rather noisy everytime you flush it and it quite annoying at night.

breakfast - you'd have to pay extra, but since the hotel will be quite a walk going up to where the restos are for a quick breakfast, you'd settle here just for the convenience. breakfast food was boring, no greek anything (not even maybe yogurt?)

staff - mixed reviews, they were generally helpful, but didn't appreciate that the reception had office hours bcos we're used to hotels that are manned in the reception 24 hrs a day. i think the reception was only until 10pm each night.

they had some local flyers of tours, etc but what was completely annoying was they weren't updated! no effort to clearly get updated pricelists. we booked directly in the kamari travel office based on a rate from a flyer and the kamari travel person called the manager in our hotel to ask about this rate that we were insisting. it turned out that the rate in hotel keti's was a very old one maybe 3-4 years ago. =S the manager was accommodating for giving us a good half-day rate since we had a late ferry out of santorini.

bed - kinda hard, but clean though and we were all tired from the tour/walking so maybe sleep quality wasnt an issue

wifi - there was free wifi available in the balcony (kinda slow) as soon as we stepped in our rooms, we lost the connection. hard to go online at night escpecially it gets chilly (leanseason) in the balcony and there's a cat in the property that won't stop bothering us while we were out there.

i had a great time here but had some issues, but if i go back to santorini, i'll probably book another hotel in the same price-range.

Room Tip: get the room with a private balcony

I loved this hotel and was glad we had picked it! The location would have been difficult to find if we had not found this great YouTube video that someone had made to guide us to the hotel: http://youtu.be/cZbLucmuG14, and though it was a little bit of a walk it made the experience even more quaint and exciting.

When we got to the hotel we were so excited to see the view and to see our room. The view was breathtaking and it was nice to have a table and chairs outside our room where we could sit and enjoy it. The room was clean and pretty roomy. We had 2 beds and the room had a sink and little fridge. The bathroom was very nice though the shower/tub was a European style which meant it had no doors or curtain... a little challenging to use the first night but then we got the hang of it w/o getting water everywhere.

The owner was very friendly and had a great advice, and it was really nice for him to offer the baggage service when we checked out. A staff person loaded our luggage on a hand truck and pulled it up to the main street.

Hotel Keti proved to be a well located little hotel in Fira on Santorini featuring stunning views. It offered simple yet clean and modern rooms built into the hillside cliffs. All rooms have shared terasses, but ours also had a private balcony. Breakfast was only so-so. It was worth using their transfer service which was extra, as they also took our suitcases up and down the many little steps.

This is an excellent hotel in Fira Greece. Its location is excellent and the views are stunning. Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff were excellent. This characterful hotel offered good value for money. This hotel is highly recommended for those who value simplicity and charm.

Room Tip: This hotel is perfectly located. I think any room will do.

What a delight to experience the wonderful and famous Greek hospitality! The views are to die for and the rooms were simple, clean, and displayed the lovely cycladic architecture of being housed into the wall of the caves.
All the information about day tours and schedules was available at the lobby and I especially appreciated the efforts of the Manager(Owner), who despite obvious mental challenges, was able to communicate effectively and explain all that I needed to know.
I hope to return soon!

Room Tip: I believe the manager/owner is deaf in his left ear and nearly deaf in the right ear and would recom...

Thoroughly enjoyed MOST of my stay! The rooms were great with gorgeous views and having a fridge was a terrific feature. However, the owner screwed up my airport transfer on my last day because he neglected to give me the correct information when I asked for it and then was a HUGE jerk about it and exceptionally rude. Definitely put a huge damper on an otherwise lovely stay.
