my wife and I stay at this hotel as part of package deal. It only cost about $70 euro. The breakfast is also included in this deal. The deal also included pick up and drop off at port, so we can take the ferry from and back to Crete.

The hotel driver pick us up from the port and transport to the hotel without any issue, once you get off the ferry, the driver has a sign on hand to tell you that he is from Kafieris Apartments.
Once we got to the hotel, the host was warm and welcome. We stay at room #11, this room is bit small, however, with all of the necessary things you would need.

The best part of the room is the view, it is out of this world beautiful. You can see the cliff side of the sea from your room.

Now, this hotel is not a resort, if you only plan to stay at your hotel and not exploring the city (I don’t know why you want to do that) this is not a hotel for you, the pool is very small but it is located at top floor, so you can see the best part Satorini from the pool side.

The locations of the hotel is at high point of the Firostefani. You need to walk pretty good distance up and down the hill to the cable cart. However, that is the whole point of stay in Santorini, isn’t?

It is not too far from the bus stop, so if you are planning to go to other places in Santorini, you would have pretty short walk to the bus stop, and the bus only cost $1.6 euro one way to all other locations within Santorini.

The hotel also included the breakfast at morning, it is nothing fancy, but good enough for us. It is also very quite, so you can have good rest for the walking ahead of you. I would high recommend this place for anybody willing to exploring Santorini to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the room at roof top which is from #9 to #13

View view and view is perfect. The kitchen was well stocked and one of the best kitchens I have seen. New towels replaced every day

This hotel is on the top of a cliff and without private transport is difficult.one has to walk uphill 20- 30 min from town.the hotel offers free pick up and drop at the port/airport. When we asked if they could drop us till the fira bus stand instead of the port, they refused citing hotel policy. No free trips!!! The toilet was bit average. The shower did not have any shower curtains and floor would get wet.
Out room bed was very creaky , every movement one made on the bed made a noise :-(

Room Tip: View from the top floor was very good

Just needed a simple week of sun to end the summer. budget concept was fine as we didn't intend to spend much time at the hotel.
Found this after a (too) quick search and booked via Expedia.

One bonus was a complimentary pick up and drop off at the airport. Expedia stated we should contact the hotel to arrange the pick up, which i did via email. no reply; tried again; no reply, contacted Expedia who helpfully contacted the hotel and confirmed we would be icked up.
We weren't.
So got a taxi across the island.
Response to question about the missing lift was a shrug.

We were too early for check-in (expected) but would have really welcomed an invitation to sit down with a coffee or something after the overnight flight and travel. Nevertheless waited until lunchtime for the true horror.

Room 2. Just don't do it. The balcony had three views. A view of Room 1's balcony; a view of a blank wall; or a view in through the laundry room. Room was grotty and the bathroom an absolute horror. The towels had been specially treated to have a sharp abrasive feel at all times. Asked for a different room which we had to wait two days for. This was No.9, which was small but fine with the kind of views you'd hope for in this location.

Breakfast was included, but was one cup of hot drink, one glass of the cheapest orange coloured dilute liquid I've seen, some bread, tiny portion of sliced meat and cheese and preserves.

Why two stars? Because there were only two good points: 1st: the lady who seems to do everything single-handed; bulgarian i think, and really tries her best with the situation she finds herself in (I thought there was a working time directive in the EU? Not in Firostafani!). 2nd: the view from the top floor.
End of.

Room Tip: Don't ger room 2, or probably room 1 either, the only ones we could vouch for are the few second floor ones with a proper caldera view.

Before I start the comment I want to hightlight:
- The staff (Viky) is very good and kind
- The views from the terrace are amazing (as the majority of good hotels in Firostefani)
- Breakfast is OK

BUT

We were very disappointed when we booked a room with sea views and instead of the expected views of the caldera (the beautiful ones and the ones any tourist would be interested into when at Firostefani) our room had "parking views" with a far away see background (not the caldera).

Our room was ROOM 4.

Also the kitchen stuff was old and in some cases broken (kitchenette and kettle).

If you are looking for beautiful sea views make sure you ask for Caldera views and that you don't get room 4. It could spoil your vacation if you are only staying in one hotel and you plan to have good views.

Room Tip: Do not choose room 4 or sea views, ask for caldera views.
