“An Oasis in the Town..”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at the Aria Lito mansion, the hotel is nestled in the busy town of Fira and is a peaceful retreat. The staff were very attentive and the breakfast fantastic. A nice touch was the lanterns and candles that were put out every evening around the accommodation. Very highly recommended.

We stayed here one night. Our room was cute but small. My husband and I really didn't use the hotel much...using it really as a place to crash for the night. We loved how it was right in town. The service was great. We were greeted with drinks when we first checked it. And they were lovely about making sure we has coffee and breakfast even though we were rushing around the morning we were due to depart.

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Europe which included Fira and Aria Lito. I cannot say enough nice things about this mansion/hotel. We were greeted by a very lovely young woman who brought us a refreshing beverage while we filled out our check in papers. Then we were shown around the property by another nice young lady. We went to our suite which was very roomy and lovely. Stephano brought us breakfast each morning, we enjoyed that outside our room and it was very simple yet generous. I would book this hotel again and again and so would the couple we traveled with. I found Aria Lito on Trip Advisor and feel very fortunate to have done so. Aria Lito may not be a 5 star hotel but we felt very catered to and very well taken care of. I really appreciate the personal interaction with the staff, you learn so much talking to them. It makes you feel like one of the family instead of just another patron. I wish I remembered the name of the lovely girl in the office, she was just wonderful. The staff at Aria Lito was eager to share what they know about the area and help you in any way possible.

We stayed for 5 nights in Sept to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Firstly we arrived at 4am in the morning (after an hr flight delay) and we were greeted by a friendly chap , whos name escapes me.He was very helpful and friendly , particularly for the early hrs of the morning. The B & B was in an excellent location right in the middle of Fira with walking distances to all the attractions, restaurants, the port ,etc. We did the 13 km hike to Oia which was fantastic. We had some great views from the walk. Each morning our breakfast was served in the garden out the back which was very relaxing and quite secluded. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful and served by Stefano who was great. The Hotel was very clean and both Laonna & Eleni were very helpful and friendly at reception. The pool area was sufficient with enough lounges and chairs for everyone. We had some laundry done and they said it would take up to 24 hrs, well it was back folded on our bed with 5 hrs. There are only 2 things which were a bit disappointing. Firstly the shower was over the bath and the bath was angled so you felt like you were falling back under the shower. The shower taps we placed in the wrong spot because as you turned around in the shower you bumped your hip against them and the tap was scolding hot. We managed fine but we had to be careful. The other gripe was that our TV volume was turned down so low that we could barley hear it. After we asked to have it increased it took 2 days for them to change it. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the staff were great.

We were in Fira for my besties wedding and we wanted to make sure we had a great location for the wedding and to explore the town of Fira. Aria Lito Mansion is right in the smack of the town, but seems so far away at the same time. The way the hotel is situated, you are far enough away to avoid all the chaos, but still just a few steps away from all the shops, restaurants and the square. Ioanna, the manager, was such a sweetheart and she really made us feel safe and at home. I still dream about sitting out on that terrace for breakfast...

I cannot avoid sharing with you our experience. Despite some comments are great, something went wrong on our stay at AriaLito.

With some time in advance, we've made a reservation for 3 nights, for the last days of our honeymoon. As we arrived the property, a nice lady (Orianna) told us they did not have place for us the first night, because of an overbooking... The solution was to send us for another property, most probably a private one - not only not good at all, but also it was not what we've paid for!
Worst of all, they didn't do anything to compensate us for this night. The Manager did not assume their error and that is VERY NEGATIVE.

So, basically, we cannot recommend it because you might happen to have an unexpected "application problem" - overbooking.

Room Tip: Any room is very nice, but you might not have one available as you arrive - overbooking!!!

My wife and I have just retuned home following a fantastic holiday celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We had the good fortune to stay at the Aria Lito. We were made to feel very special by the small team of amazing staff, who provided great recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. Our room was large and well decorated. Breakfast outside our room was excellent. Location perfect for exploring Fira and surrounding areas. Unlike some large hotels, we got to know some of the other guests and shared experiences of the island. We will be returning soon, as our stay was one of the most relaxing and special holidays we have had.
