“great location, great views, great value”
Reviewed May 26, 2011

You couldn't help but be entranced by the views over the caldera and bay. You can sit on your shared patio and take in the view or you can even lie in bed and watch the ever changing sea. The rooms are in the traditional style, small but tastefully decorated. I loved the old photographs of Fira. The rooms have all the necessary amenities including wireless internet, and fridge complete with bottle of water. Breakfast was a delight, sitting in the restaurant with its fabulous view, eating the good food and being waited on by the friendly staff. The Villas are a a solid 15 minute walk from the bus station along the Ia Road or catch the bus to Ia and get off at Firostefani Square. This hotel is great value for money.

This was the best time of my life... The hotel is located Just above the sea, and you have great views, The breakfast was great and homemade... Do not expect extra luxury or something like this, its just something more specialty and customade for you. They made us feel like home and the staff was excellent. Our rooms were cleaned daily and they were CLEAN -which is very important to me! Moreover the rooms have all the amentities and exactly what you may need, if you are looking for extra large rooms do not go for this, and I do not say that they were small! The veranda was amazing and the views are breathtaking!!!! Go for it!!!!!

First of all, please do not pay attention to my valoration of the hotel. I haven't been there yet so i've no opinion about hotel quality. I will go there by next september.
Searching for extra information, I'd found that the 8 pictures and few of the comments displayed here belong to Villa Remvi in Lefkada island.

The hotel in Firostefani offers caldera view and what you can see in tripadvisor's pictures have nothing to do with Santorini.

I had the most wonderful 3 day/2 night stay in Villa Remvi. Room 4, where I stayed had the most fantastic view of the volcano and the sea with the cruise ships anchored below. The patio just outside the room door is a great place to chill out with a drink or hot soup and drink in the view after a full day of sightseeing. The staff were friendly and the breakfast more than adequate for me. I had lunch at the restaurant on the first day and was happy with the food and the service. Firostefani where the hotel is situated is barely a 10 to 15 minute pleasant walk to Fira.

I booked directly by email with the owner Thanasis after the first contact via the hotel's website. Thanasis was most friendly and helpful, patiently replying to my many emails. He even arranged my rental car. I was originally booked for three nights but my evening flight to Santorini was cancelled due to strong wind, and got the morning flight over the next day. Thanasis graciously did not charge me for the night I missed! Now how's that for niceness! Would stay there again the next time.

Sitting behind a computer in the United States and not knowing where to stay is sort of like going to a Casino with a couple of dollars in your pocket. You don't know what you are going to get.

Well, I can only say "JACKPOT"

We were picked up at the port and driven to Villa Remvi. The views are to die for. Price is just right. Walking distance to town is only a couple of K's.

Married, single, divorced, with a family this place is great. You would not be sorry for staying.

Morning breakfast is included and really good. Evening meals are served and the prices are reasonable.

You can book them from your home at http://www.santorini.com/hotels/remvi/

I know this is where I will stay next time I travel to Santorini.
