We have just returned from an amazing holiday from Greece. The Thireas was selected primarily based on the reviews from other travelers on Trip advisor. Needless to say we were not disappointed .The Hotel (if you can call it one) is actually a small guesthouse with only 7 rooms, no working hotel kitchen (they still manage to put together a fantastic breakfast), and no lobby or grand reception. Yet it provides such a warmth such as the feeling of visiting a close relatives home .The hotel though small gives the feeling of a big space due to the various terraces at different levels .The view is spectacular at any given point. We went to Oia for the famous sunset however our Hotel had as good a view as any. We were two families with teenage children. The staff is so courteous and efficient that it amazed us. It seemed 2 people were managing the entire property by themselves.Yiannis was involved right from serving us breakfast, doing up the rooms, managing the reception,providing us a map , marking places to visit and last but not the least seeing off the guests (lifting and dropping all the luggage to the car). He was just smiles ,hospitable and courteous during the entire process.
Another great advantage of the Hotel is the excellent location. It is ideally located just minutes away from the main market where the super markets such as Carrefour are located. It is a walking distance from all the popular night clubs, and restaurants within Fira. The bus terminus is a 5 minutes walk away.
Instead of hiring a car or taxi we travelled across in the local buses as the cost is mere 1.6 euro per person and takes you comfortably from one end of the island to the other. We travelled in the bus to all the beach areas as well as the famous Oia. The travel time is mostly 20 to 30 minutes one way across the island.
