This was our second time staying at the Ira. Three years ago we were here for a week, but this time we chose to end a beach holiday in Kamari (on the South of the Island) with one night to watch the sun setting. If you can imagine sitting on a beautiful balcony set on a cliff face, drinking chilled rose wine as the sun sets... then this is the place for you. This time, we also had one of the local cats join us as we all waited for the sun to go down.

The Ira is located in Firostefani, a short walk from the capital Fira. The hotel has a modern feel to it, exquisitely decorated, with a high quality service. The owners really get to know you, and because we were returning to see them again, we were treated with genuine warmth and the familiarity of old friends. We will be returning again. This hotel is perfect.

Room Tip: It is certainly worth paying the little bit more for the view of the caldera and your own private space to watch an Aegean sun set.

Stayed at Hotel Ira for 4 nights, after a 5 night stay in Perissa and it surpassed all expectations. Our room was Ivi, which is an upper floor courtyard room, ideal if you don't want to pay quite as much as the front caldera view rooms. Ivi has a private balcony and partial sea view and was a lovely room to stay in. The rooms are nicely decorated, beautiful mosaic shower which was very spacious and a small mini bar / fridge which you can store drinks in. Rooms also have air con which is nice in the summer heat!

Breakfast is lovely, lots of choice and a different hot item every day and you can sit out in the courtyard to eat in the morning sunshine. The piece de resistance of this hotel is the pool and the view of the caldera and volcano - it is STUNNING!!! The pool area has been well designed so you can sit on your sunlounger and look straight out over the volcano through the glass panels. Pool area was generally quiet, no issues getting sunbeds, and the hotel provides pool towels.

Hotel staff were so friendly nothing was too much trouble, booked a boat trip for us, and arranged a transfer back to the airport, and always available to offer advice. The only thing to note is that the hotel doesn't really have a bar as such, so for drinks in the day we stocked up our mini room fridge. This suited us perfectly as it was cheaper, but if you want to be waited on hand and foot for drinks/food, this may not be the place for you. Finally, location also perfect. Ira is the last hotel at the top of firastefani, has car parking which is a real plus, and is a short walk down to firastefani or fira for dinner.

Had an amazing time, didn't want to leave. Would definitely go back and would recommend Ira to anyone going to Fira. It is absolutely idyllic and is also not overly expensive or pretentious. A lovely friendly place with five star service and setting.

Room Tip: Caldera view rooms look amazing but we thought best value was the upper floor courtyard room - Ivi.

We loved IRA Hotel in Santorini.we will stay here everytime we return to the island.the staff were so friendly and welcoming.we had free transfer from the airport on arrival and to the port on our departure.the hotel rooms were spacious and clean.the breakfast was superb and the view from our room was breathtaking!I cannot fault this hotel as everything was just perfect.also free and lots of parking available and you will appreciate this because it is difficult to find parking in Santorini.as most hotels are on cliff edge it is almost impossible to find parkkng but at IRA hotel it was a breeze (And we were there peak summer season In July).five star hotel and was worth every penny to stay there.

I don't even know where to start... From the staff to the views to the location, it just doesn't get any better. We were greeted with the warmest of Greek hospitality upon arrival and it just got better from there. Without a doubt, Firostefani is the greatest place to stay on the island. It's close enough to walk into town and far enough away to feel like you're on your own private island. Whether we were enjoying (free and yummy) breakfast on the terrace, taking in the extraordinary view poolside, or escaping the heat in our cozy room, we couldn't have asked for more in a hotel. They even lugged us and our stuff to the port to catch our ferry (also free)... what's not to love about this place. I WILL be returning to Hotel Ira on my next trip to Santorini. Do yourself a favor and stay here!
