“Just like a postcard!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2009

This hotel absolutely lives up to all the great reviews! We stayed in Room 2 for 4 nights. Not as modern as we're used to in the U.S but perfectly fine.
My husband and I just fell in love with the location, the service & hospitality, the small quaint feel, and the view is just breath taking. We were the only couple that stayed at this hotel and ALL of our relatives were completely jealous of what we got for the pay...because they paid sooo much more for no view! The staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful - the restaurant recommendation was also right on.
The only downside? be prepared for stairs so not good if you have any walking issues. Other than that, GO! You won't be sorry for choosing this hotel.

Ideally situated in the heart of Fira, convenient to everything.

Stunning views from every balcony, staircase, and window.

Charming rooms and suites.

Excellent staff and service.

We stayed in room 5 for 3 nights and suite 7 for one night. Room 5 was small and quaint with spiral stairs down to the bathroom. A little inconvenient at night, but also kind of fun. Nice little kitchen, gorgeous view from the small balcony.

Suite 7 was big and beautiful, at the very bottom of the stairs. Two beds, large living/dining area, kitchen, tall arched ceiling. Big bathroom had a very unique shower with a window. Shared courtyard with suite 8 and easy access to the lower street through the "back door".

I can't say enough about the service. Wonderful breakfasts delivered to our door every day. Our heavy bags carried up and down all of those stairs. Everything was spotlessly clean.

We stayed at other hotels during our visit to Greece. The staff at these hotels were polite, but somewhat reserved and distant. Chrisoula, the host at Enigma Hotel, was the complete opposite. She was warm, welcoming and talkative. She gave us great advice about what to visit on the island. She recommended wonderful restaurants, told us which ones to avoid, and helped us with our car rental. She really made us feel at home.

The Enigma Hotel is top notch - you won't be disappointed.

I was in Santorini the first week of Septemeber with my girlfriend.Some friends who visited the island last summer recommended Enigma suites and apartments,so we chose to stay there.And as it seemed, it was indeed the best accommodation choice we could do.The hotel was very beautiful,had a terrific view of the volcano and the caldera.We also liked the room's decoration style a lot.The staff was brilliant and really helpful,especially Chris the receptionist! Once we arrived there we felt like home and very welcomed. She lighlited the good spots to visit and she recommended also a sunset boat excursion,which was one of the nicest experiences of our holidays.Well,thank you Chris,thank you Enigma,thank you Santorini,for the great,relaxing and interesting time we spent!We'll tottaly revisit!!

We spent 5 fantastic nights at Enigma and I am in love with it!
We stayed in an extremely room were so comfortable and clean with a large living room and kitchen. It had an AMAZING view direct at Caldera with private balcony in each room. The place was very quiet and peaceful.
We had also an outdoor private Jacuzzi and we saw the sunset each day from there.
The breakfast was fantastic always fresh and healthy, served to your room and does not finish until 12!!!
The location was perfect and near to everything! But at the same time it was very quiet.
The staffs were very friendly, professional and helpful. Chrisoula knows the island pretty well so provided us with wonderful suggestions, many tips and great service!
We loved Enigma and would recommend it to everyone!!!
We can't wait to come back to this amazing island and of course to Enigma…!

We spent 3 nights at Engima and fell in love with it. We stay in a studio which was charming and cute with fanastic views.... the only down side not much storage room for your clothes to unpack.

The breakfast is fantastic, served to your room and does not finish until 12 which is great after a late night.

The staff are extremly friendly and professional and genuinly want you to have the best time in Santorini.

We can't wait to come back to this magical island and Enigma...

Easily one of the best places we've ever stayed at; was ideal for our honeymoon. Great place, AMAZING views - well worth spending the extra bit to have the room with the hot-tub/jacuzzi. really, really beautiful breakfasts in the morning are brought to your room. It's been a year since my wife and I were last there - but I thought I'd re-affirm how pleasant our stay there was. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this hotel.
