Antonia Hotel Santorini
Ranked #19 of 81 Hotels in Fira
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 1, 2013

My wife and I wanted reasonably priced accommodation in Fira for a two-week break, so that we could drive around during the day but relax in the evening with lots of restaurant choices within a short stroll. The Antonia Apartments certainly seemed to fit the bill and what we read on Trip Advisor about Lefteris was encouraging.
The reality is quite amazing, as Lefteris is larger than life and one of the most well-known and well respected people on the island of Santorini. Everywhere we went the locals would sing his praises. The apartment we had was clean, comfortable, well appointed and it is true about the free coffee and wine and we several times saw evidence of Lefteris' willingness to go far beyond the level of care that we have come to expect on our travels over the years.
His recommendations for destinations were always given with good consideration for what we were looking for, whether a quiet or noisy beach, or cheap and cheerful or more upmarket food. There must be more than 50 resturants and bars within 10 minutes walk from the apartments.
Our only problem now is whether we can ever find anywhere to stay in future that is anything like as good!

Room Tip: We had Room 21, which may be the best (at the top at the back with a balcony) but probably because w...

My Fiancé and I stayed here from 14 - 26 June. Free pick up from the airport was followed by the warmest welcome imaginable from Lefteris upon arrival. It was evident that nothing was too much trouble. Free wine upon arrival which was replenished daily or more often if required. We had room 18 on the top floor with a partial view of the ocean and overlooking the pool. A clean and comfortable room with modern furnishings and super comfy beds. Lefteris' hospitality cannot be rivalled, he is a genuinely lovely man with a lovely family and friendly staff working for him. He provided recommendations for 3 restaurants - they were all great places to eat (will also be reviewed on TA). We saw a lot of guests come and go of all age groups so for that reason I would say the accommodation is suitable for all. We chose a room with cooking facilities but never used them, the fridge comes in handy for keeping the wine chilled. There is air con available in the rooms, a safe, free wifi and beach towels are provided by the pool. The pool area is a real sun trap and only houses 4 sunbeds but Kamari beach is only a 15 minute bus journey away (bus stop is 5 minutes walk and bus runs every 15 mins). Security on site do a fantastic job so you can feel safe and secure and assured that any noise issues will be dealt with swiftly. We booked through booking.com and paid 660 euros for 11 nights which is an absolute bargain for such centrally located accommodation. You can also contact Lefteris directly to arrange a booking via the Antonia Apartments website and may get a cheaper deal. We received free transport back to the airport today and were genuine saddened to leave such a beautiful place with such a lovely host. Would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends. Can't wait to return :)

It is clear that Lefteris, the owner, enjoys what he does.... pleasing people and making sure that everybody is happy.

I was a little skeptical when I made my reservation. The reviews sounded too good. Well let me assure you that there is nothing fake about this establishment. We flew to Santorini and were greeted at the airport....a free transfer

Arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by Lefteris..... what a great guy, he puts you at ease and really makes you feel welcome. He is always there to assist with questions and ideas.... gives you a map and oversight of the Island, all with complimentary coffee and wine, depending on the hour of the day.

The hotel is divided in the older hotel rooms and a new building that houses the apartments, but also has econo rooms. The premises and rooms are clean and modern. What a deal for the cost.

The hotel is located 2 blocks from the very efficient bus terminal, 2 blocks from the town square where you will find mini markets, motorcycle rentals, restaurants.... and then about 4 blocks away from the caldera.

If you are going to Santorini to bake in the sun and not move from your hotel and a view of the caldera is a must (along with the extra 100 plus euros) then this is not the place for you. If you want a very nice to stay, convenient and close to everything, and you will be out and about exploring the Island.... and want to save some money ... there is no other place.

Your stay will be made unforgettable by Lefteris who loves what he does and it clearly shows. You cannot go wrong. Also listen to his advice on companies to use for scooter rentals and inexpensive good restaurants.

Room Tip: go for the econo rooms in the newer Antonia Apartments if possible --- otherwise just staying here i...

We stayed here for one night due to previous accommodation on another island plans falling through.

We wish we stayed here the whole time! Best location. A very short walk to town.

The hosts are fantastic! Greeted with coffee, tea or wine. Had free wine throughout stay.

The hosts offered to help us anytime with advice, car rentals etc.

I really couldn't recommend this place enough!

This is my second time staying at Antonia apartments 2 yrs later and it's still a wonderful experience. The owner is very hospitable and offered us a jug of wine to put in our fridge during check in.

I also stayed in the same apartment (#23) and its very sufficient for our needs with a large amount of space, comfy bed, and clean bathroom. If you're lookin for a place to stay with good amenities and great price, this is the place to go! We only paid 60 euro and was a minute walking from FIRA city center!

We stayed in a double room in the apartment part of the hotel. The room was plenty big enough and clean and there was the bonus of a kitchen and dining area - and a balcony. But it was the reception from the owner, Lefteris, that made our stay more than just a night in a hotel.

We were met at the airport and given free transport to the hotel, where Lefteris met us and took us to our room, leaving with us a half litre of his own white wine. In the morning we were out on the balcony and he passed across two cups of coffee to help us start the day. Lefteris was genuinely interested in seeing that our stay was comfortable and enjoyable.

The location, a block away from the buzzy part of Fira, is excellent, too. We can only think of positive things to say about this hotel.
