This hotel was incredible. It is in the main town of Santorini and only a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport. The views around the entire island are breathtaking.
Upon our arrival we were treated like royalty. We received a map with directions and instructions for what to do/when to do it/ and best way to see Santorini. The hotel manager is very friendly and happy to do whatever he can to improve your stay. My sister and I had three large bags (I do not recommend taking that many -- but she had just finished a study abroad program in Paris) and we had booked a small room. He was concerned that our luggage wouldn't fit so he upgraded us to the suite! I was shocked!
The hotel is only a quick 5 minute walk from the main streets/market in Fira, but well worth the price for location. On walk towards Galatia, you can see ocean views. The hotel also offered free wi-fi. It was really strong - we were able to use video streaming with Skype - and had no problems.
On the day we were leaving, the hotel manager's wife had the same plane flight. Instead of booking us a taxi, he volunteered to drive us to the airport with his wife! Overall, I was touched by the kindness and generosity I received at this hotel. It was a fantastic stay and I would absolutely go back to this hotel.
