“Lovely hotel with friendly service just out of Fira”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Nice clean hotel run by a mum and her son who are very welcoming and friendly.

It's a 10 minute up hill walk into Fira but as we hired a motor bike we loved it was away from everything - it was so peaceful. We had a beautiful view overlooking the pool to the water and the rooms were simple but clean and comfortable. The bathroom is small but that is normal for Greece and at least there was a shower curtain. The breakfast consisted of bread, honey, jam, tinned peaches, an apple or peach, cake, tea or coffee and juice. The lady who runs the hotel is absolutely lovely gave us great recommendations and supplied us with a plate and knife so we could ave our super market bought lunch on our balcony (a lot of hotels won't let you bring food in).

Highly recommend for those who hire a bike or a car (best way to see the island anyway) but not for those who would struggle with an uphill walk and have no other transport.

Room Tip: Hire a bike or car to see the island.

we had been spoilt by 11 nights in the paradise of Folegandros,going back to Santorini and its big brash bold frontage was a wake up call for things to come back home in England.However the welcome and service here made our last 2 days in Greece so bearable and lovely.We were looked after so well,the lady who runs this so dedicated,loving and sweet that anybody who doesnt give this place 5 stars must have a heart of stone.Hospitality doesnt come any better than this.

I chose to stay here for 3 nights after a good review from somebody else and I was not disappointed. Santorini itself is a very popular destination due to its unique geology beauty and of course the picture postcard views. It therefore has a massive range of accommodation, ranging from the worst to some of the best hotels in the World... and most expensive. Villa Romantica is a perfect choice if your are looking for reasonable priced good value accommodation on the island. Its is about 15 minutes walk away from the Centre of Fira which is a busy touristy town. The hotel has lovely views towards the sea on the eastern side of the island and is in a quiet location surrounded by donkey/mule farms. It is perfectly situated for exploring the island by rental car. It has lots of space for parking, which is at a real premium on the island and seems to be at the centre of everything. It has great access to the quieter back roads so you can miss the traffic during busy periods. The gorgeous town of Oia is about a 20 minute drive away. The hotel rooms were spacious, air conditioned, very clean and each appeared to have a lovely big balcony. The rest of the hotel was also very clean and tidy and the owner was lovely and very helpful. I would not hesitate in staying here again.

Villa Romantic was really a good find for us. It is located slightly away from Fira town, so perfect for anybody looking for a little less noisy break in Santorini. But you should have your own conveyance, either a car or a scooter/quad.

The owners were very helpful too. The view from our room was very nice too. I definitely give a thumbs up to this property.

Room Tip: Take a room towards the front of the hotel. The views are amazing.

Myself and partner stayed here in August this year and I would just like to recommend this hotel to others; comfortable and in a peaceful location away from the busy town, which incidentally is one of the main towns of Santorini to be visited. Booking procedure and interactions with the owner prior to arriving was straight forward and efficient. We felt welcomed even before we arrived. The owner and family are extremely friendly and helpful and it was a pleasure to come down in the mornings for breakfast to such a warm, homely greeting. Breakfast, incidentally, was just right and as far as we could see tailored for all tastes. We could see the sea from our balcony and even a direct and uninterrupted view of the sun rise. Highly recommended.

I spent a great week in Fira, Santorini at Villa Romantic. Kosmos and his mum (proprietors) were very welcoming and happy to help with providing information on what to see and do and places to eat. The rooms were cleaned daily, breakfast was nice and sound of the bells on the donkeys could be heard in the distance... lovely!

We stayed a night here. They picked us up from the port. The place is clean, homely, pleasant and quite nice. You can see the sea from your rooms. The owner, Kosmos was very helpful and gave us necessary information to help us move around Fira. The bathroom is tiny and the place is an easy uphill walk away (maybe 10min) from the main town centre. It is certainly very good value for the money.
