“Great Hotel, Great loacation, Fantastic owner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2009

We were collected from the airport and taken to this lovely hotel where we were offered a choice of rooms. The room were all very clean and nicely presented and the air conditioning and balcony were excellent additions. We felt our location was perfect to the very beautiful Thira. What made our stay really special was being invited to the owners family party for a glass of wine and a massive plate of home made Greek food was placed in front of us. Overall our stay in Santorini was perfect and Villa Roussa really helped this.

We just came back from a wonderful week in Fira where we stayed in Villa Roussa. We think you will not find better value for money in Fira. Villa Roussa has the best location from which you can explore the town or head quickly for other regions on the island. It is very clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. Peter, the boss, helped us get a car and took us to the airport himself the day of our departure.
You don't have a caldera view in Villa Roussa but we did not miss that at all because after max 5 min walk you can have it. It is even more convenient than most of other places with caldera view because you don't have to climb endless steps whenever you go downtown from your hotel.
PS: go to Restaurant Naossa for best dinner at Fira

This hotel is a great budget hotel. Owner was helpful picking us up from the airport. Very central location to access all points on the island. Rooms were simple, but veru clean. In my opinion, the value can not be beat in Fira.

It is located next to the Fira bus station. It's convenient for us to go to any place in Santorini from this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel one night on our way back home. The hotel is very close to the centre of Fira and literally around a corner from the brilliant Mama's Place, which served the best ever breakfast & not too far from a bar that served nice strawberry daiquiries!
The hotel was very clean and roomy. And the shower & bath were a great success! Our 4 year old loved the bath and the windows between the bedrooms. The room was quiet and had air con. What more can one want.
The owner was very helpful & sorted our taxi, even though the hotel is just next to the taxi and bus stations.
And all this for mere 75 euros in Santorini!

I stayed 3 nites (4 - 7 Jun 09).
It is very convenient, situated near the main bus station, taxi station and 5 minutes walk to Fira Caldera.
Room is clean & simple, no breakfast provided
The host - Peter is nice.
All ok except:
- the shower handle cannot be hanged on the wall, spoilt! Only 2 pieces of soap provided. (I dun know why, may be at Santorini, all the shower handle is made not to be hanged on the wall??)
-Television is too small and hang near the corner of the ceiling, the reception is worst, almost all channel are greek's, CNN & other English channel cannot be received.
- Bath Towel looks a bit darken!

This hotel was the most comfortable out of our 2 months of traveling around Europe. The owner attended to our every need including personally picking us up from the ferry and dropping us at the airport at the end of our stay. Large room, clean, newly renovated with balcony (no view- but was lovely anyway), refrigerator, internet and TV. Excellent value in winter (don't know about summer). Short walk to cable cars, shops, restaurants, supermarket, museums and beautiful views. I recommend to hire a car to see the rest of the island-best way to do it!!
