“A jewel on Santorini”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

We booked the Nefeles Suites for mid-March 2011, their first week of the season. Most of the island was still sprucing up for an Easter opening, so Fira was mostly quiet (except for the sounds of saws and hammers as workmen made repairs). The hotel has a beautiful view of the caldera in a very convenient location in Fira. The hotel itself is excellent -- spacious, comfortable rooms, great balconies, nice pool, etc. But what made it special were Sara and Niko -- our two hosts. After meeting us at the airport, they brought us to the hotel and informed us that our room really wasn't big enough for all four of us (two adults, our adult daughter and teenage son) so they were giving us a second room on the house. Granted, the hotel wasn't full, but it was very generous. Throughout our stay, Sara and Niko made sure we found the right restaurants, arranged for a car rental to explore the island and made us feel so much at home. And that's what it really felt like -- that we were staying in someone's home, not some sterile hotel. I would definitely go back to the Nefeles Suites.

My Wife and I spent a week staying at Nefeles this past April on our honeymoon. Top notch all the way Stefano (the owner) is super friendly and is always willing to help with whatever you need. From organizing a car rental scuba diving or transport to/from the airport and ferry terminal to reccomending hikes, restaurants, pretty beaches and where not to go during certain times of the year. He also runs another hotel on another island (?Mykonos?) which I am sure of similar caliber. Even when the owner wasnt there the staff was always friendly and willing to help.
For the honeymoon he upgraded our room and had wine and a snack of local fare waiting for us upon arrival. Cant wait to go back for an anniversary someday. The pool on the roof was under contstruction when we were there but judging from the website it is complete and looks like a great place to hang out. If you are considering this hotel, stop looking around and book it. He doesnt have many rooms, but the friendliness, central location and amazing caldera views from your bed are worth the $.

My girlfriend and I had two glorious days at the Nefeles in September this year. We rented the family suite so that we could have a room each. Walking down to our room (right on the cliff face), the view was breathtaking, both outside and inside. Every attention to detail is taken in ensuring that your stay at Nefeles is memorable. Stefanos and his staff are so very helpful and friendly, that we really didnt want to leave. The rooms are cleaned twice a day, and are a delight to stay in! Breakfast is yummy, plunge pool on the top of the room is awesome to watch the sun go down and sip on a corona or two, and the heated pool is down below in the shaded area if you want a break from the sun!

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone!!!

Room Tip: The higher you are, the better the view!

Words can't describe the beauty of this town and you can't be in a better spot if you stay at Nefeles. The hotel is beautiful and provides amazing views, great service and a nice pool spot for relaxing and taking in the beauty. We are dying to go back.

Excellent hotel with great views, friendly staff, and in the middle of Fira. Realised that the manager also upgraded our room which was a wonderful gesture. We loved our time there and would definitely go back to the same hotel if we go back. The only small gripe was that the shower needed some shower curtains as the floor got wet everytime we showered, but they did clean the rooms twice a day. Overall, wonderful hotel.

The Nefeles Suites is an awesome hotel! The staff is very helpful and always around. The breakfast each morning was delicious. The rooms were clean, beautiful, and cozy. We had a little bit of an issue with the type of shower--no curtain--so we got water on the floor--otherwise all was perfect. The pool on the roof was perfect for relaxing. The best part of our trip was walking out of our room each morning to the spectacular view of the caldera. Amazing! The hotel is centrally located to everything in Fira. I am so glad we booked this hotel!

Room Tip: All rooms require steep stairs, as is common in Santorini. Our room had a small nook as a bedroom, s...

Our stay at Nefeles Suites was one of the best experiences of our European holiday this year.

The self-indulgent diatribe from Emy940 of London UK is anything but helpful on this site. Having stayed at Nefeles Suites during the same period we need to counter the ridiculous claims.

Put simply, Nefeles Suites is a professional, luxury operation that appeals to those who want quality and attentive service and value for money in the boutique travel market.

We are regular luxury travellers and can not speak highly enough of Nefeles Suites - due mainly to the expertise of the man running the operation - Stefanos.

We received a warm welcome, an upgrade upon arrival, regular face to face contact to ensure we were happy with our stay, fantastic room and servicing and a hearty, traditional Greek breakfast showcasing some of the local produce of Santorini.

We THANK YOU for a lovely stay and look forward to returning in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for Kameni or Erinia Suites for a glorious view
