This wonderful little b&b hotel in Firostefani is a fabulous find. The rooms are clean and attractive, and the setting--clinging to the cliffs of the caldera--is spectacular. The hotel is high up on the cliffside, so there's just one set of stairs to walk down, so access is easy. The common terrace is wide and the white wicker-like furniture looks brand new and is quite comfortable. The right-there-hanging-over-it-all view to the caldera is the equal of any fancy hotel anywhere on the island. There's a hot tub with a view, too, although the weather was so hot when we were there that I couldn't imagine using it. (They also have a massage room, although we didn't use those services either.)
We had breakfast on the terrace every morning, and it always came on time, was served with a smile, and was quite delicious--toasted bread, chocolate croissants, cheese and ham slices, hard-boiled eggs, orange juice, and coffee, tea, or hot or cold cocoa. The condiments included little bowls of Nutella, much to my teenage daughter's delight.
Internet is free and the connection is good, although it doesn't reach to most of the rooms. There's a spot to sit with your laptop near the reception, though, so that is no problem at all.
Firostefani is a great place to stay--within easy walking distance to Fira but not in the middle of all the hubbub. It's also within easy walking distance to Emirovigli.
We found everyone who worked at the hotel to be helpful, friendly, and accommodating. I could not have been more pleased and would come back here in a heartbeat.
