You get the real family loving feel and that is ultimate for us being here on our honeymoon. Smaro Studio is traditional but modern at the same time, the studios have plenty of room and that is hard to find on any island. The bathroom rocks!!

If you are looking for the best cost/service ratio you can find in Santorini, you probably found it at Smaro. You get the view of the sunset, you get the great apartment, breakfast at your balcony delivered every morning and of course you get Maria, the hotel manager, her son, and the sweet girl that helps them out, the trio being the kindest people we met at the island, always eager to help with anything you need. At first we thought Smaro was brand new and they were trying to make a name for the hotel but as it turned out, they just love the job and they go a long way to satisfy the customers. We will of course stay there again next time we visit Santorini.

Smaro's studios was exactly what we expected to find after our booking. At a realistic price, we were offered a shinning clean room with unforgetable clothing (it was a cold time, all bed covers and towels were fantastic), discreet personnel, lovely breakfast at our balcony and of course the amazing view of Santorini kaldera.

For me this is a perfect ten. Thank you!

Super location, super view and a very friendly manager. The breakfast was very good and served on the private balcony. We stayed in the room Katerina with a private balcony. The room was very comfortable, very clean and with a fridge and a small stove. Excellent place to see a quiet sunset. Restaurants and Fira are in good walking distance. We would definitely stay there again.

I have stayed a Smaro twice before and they are wonderful, the food is wonderful, excellent service but can i please ask that you be more quiet in the mornings. Greeks tend to speak really loud and it woke us up every day. Other than that thank you for your wonderful service.

Room Tip: Lovely Family Business. Very nice people! I highly recommend it but you don't always have a good...

We stayed during peak season at the beginning of August 2011. The room was fantastic with perfect sunset and caldera views. A short 5-10 minute walk along the beautiful footpath to Fira was the perfect distance to be close to everything but remain secluded and quiet in the evenings. We stayed in the Georgios room, which was the best. It was the highest of the studios and had the best views. The room was wonderful with a shower, kitchen, fridge, double bed, TV, internet, desk etc. Everything in the fridge was complimentary and we were welcomed with a bottle of Santorini wine for our stay. Breakfast was served in our private balcony and included eggs, pancakes, juice, coffee, cakes, and a toasted sandwich. The front desk was extremely helpful and provided us with advice and a free guide. It was a wonderful stay and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Stay in the Georgios room - it had the best views and was private compared to the others

I have stayed at Smaro more than once and I love it! Breakfast is perfect along with a beautiful view. It is safe, cozy and away from the maddening crowd; however, a short walk will take you right into more action if you so desire. The owner Maria is a wonderful and warm person. If anyone complains about this lovely place, the problem lies within his or her unreasonable psyche!
