Argonaftes
Ranked #14 of 21 Hotels in Firostefani
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Argonaftes is a wonderful place to stay. The hotel is managed by a happy family who make you welcome and spoil you for the duration of your stay. Really genuine and kind people. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from the centre of fira. Our room had a fantastic sea view from the balcony and there was fast free WiFi in the room as well. There was satellite TV but not many English channels however, who needs TV in Santorini?
If hotels were awarded stars for personality, Aronaftes would be five stars all day long.

We stayed there for 3 days. The owners are a very nice couple. The room is very clean with all accessory needed not to mention the fantastic view (if you got a room facing the sea in the east). We watched sunrise just on our balcony.

A family run self contained spacious room was more than what we expected. Beautiful views from the balcony. Although we only had a two night stay we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The whole family were very friendly and the place was clean with wifi. Restaurants and"delis" within 200 metres but the main part of the town only a 15 minute walk. A bar fridge sufficient to put your water and alcohol in. Suggest you catch a taxi from the airport or ferry because you would never find it unless you knew the area very well.
Only hiccup was upon checkout they told me I hadn't paid when I knew that I had. It was resolved when they woke the daughter up. They rang for us a taxi to airport. Fare - 10 euros. Free Wifi worked well and we would stay there again. Good value.

Was looking for a budget stay around Fira and found this accommodation. Price is very much within my budget. After arriving at this place, I was surprise to find it very homely, clean, room has fridge, working A/C, TV and hair dryer! Towels are so clean and has a very fresh smell.

Loula and her husband greeted so warmly upon arrival. After checkin, Loula was very eager to share the interesting and must-see places. For someone who is first time and travelling alone, this information is very much appreciated.

For this price in Fira, walking distance (5min) to the square, it is just fantastic. I love Santorini and if I come back again, I would certainly return. Highly recommended!

Oh yes, you get free cucumber, home grown by Leftalis (Loula's husband, hope I spell it right)

My husband and I stayed at this hotel and absolutely loved it. We were greeted like old friends upon our arrival and given recommendations about how to best use our limited time on the island. Our room was large, quiet and clean. There are many places to eat and drink within walking distance. It was a little hard to find at first, as it is tucked down a quiet little street - but it is next to Tony's Car Rental and behind a small pre-school. I would absolutely stay at this place again. It was an incredible value for a small price!

We were so pleasantly pleased with our accommodations at Argonaftes that I cannot recommend staying here enough. It was a very short walk into Fira for shopping and Caldera views. We found the hotel owners to be incredibly hospitable and we really enjoyed talking with them. Our room was full of character and incredibly clean. The character and affordability of the hotel were it’s selling points for us. If we ever have the good fortune to visit Santorini again I would not even consider staying somewhere else.

Room Tip: We got the top round room with a balcony.. it had a great view and was very private.

My sisters and a friend of ours loved this hotel! The owners are amazing people. Very friendly and polite. The room we had was a good size for the four of us, very clean and quiet. When we go back to Santorini we will definitely stay there again! We recommended it to our friends in NY!!!!
