Friendly and helpful staff. They organised to pick us up from port and also bring us back. Nice pool area. Very good value for money. The rooms are basic, but pretty clean.
The hotel is a bit far away from Fira center (25 min. walking). Only basic breakfast. There was no wireless internet signal in my room, I needed to go to the reception.

This is the second time my partner and I have stayed here while island hopping. Great location near enough to Thera to walk in but far enough away to be quiet at night. Very friendly host Artemis and also George. They made us very welcome. Lovely place to stay!

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have big balconies, the rooms at the back have great views.

A beautiful hotel with a lovely pool area, clean rooms, perfect wifi connection, air conditioning, delicious breakfast and is located only a short walk away from the city center. The owners are what makes the hotel the amazing place it is, they were very welcoming and extremely helpful with tours, transfers and any possible query one would have. I have nothing but possitive things to say about the hotel and would most definitely stay here again!

Your in the best of hands when you stay in this family-runned hotel. They dont know what the best they can do for you. Plainness, good service, good breakfast,clean rooms
The location is ok if you want to stay nearby Thira but still quiet - walking distance. We were 4 adults - found it a little bit too small and needed some more space.
But if you are friends, couples or travelling on your one - this is a good/safe place to stay.

Hotel Olympia is for us the best. Artemis, who is the owner of the hotel, is alwas very careful and looks that his guests have plesant days on the island. The rooms are quiet, very clean and have a fridge. The view from our balcony was very beautiful, we had a look to the sea and to the town of Thira. With George, who made very good breakfast, you can talk about many interesting themes. We love the familiar atmosphere and the nice people. We are shure, that we'll stay again in this hotel.

We were greeted at the airport by one of the brother owners who promptly took us to check-in, at 6am. After arriving to Santorini extremely early, we couldn't have stumbled upon better service for our 4 days in Santorini.

The hotel is a beautiful 23 room inn located just meters off the main road, and only ten minute walk to Fira. The idyllic setting on the rolling hills of Santroni, with field, pool and ocean views help set the mood for the island and provide for a quite hotel property and rooms. However just 5oo meters away is the bustling city of Fira. Also, there is are great business just at the main street only a couples of minutes away from the property.

Jorge, Artemis and his brother are your go to gentlemen for an A+ Santorini experience. Their in depth knowledge of the island, understanding of travelers needs and wants and superior customer service culminates to an unforgettable island experience.

The WIFI works great and is available in guest rooms, something many other hotels lacked.
It great that the breakfast is included, however basic. It could use some fruit, yogurt and additional items to round out the offering.
The hotel could use some minor human touches such as landscape, music and interior refresh to update and finish the product.

Overall: a great stay, product, service and location for the price.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing north east for a field, ocean view or west for a pool view.

We visited Santorni as the 3rd Island of a Cyclades Island hopping holiday in July 2013, We were expecting the Island to be expensive so planned only a couple of day's, However when we disembarked the ferry from Mykinos, we were confronted by at least a hundred Hotel/B&B/room vendors offering most types of accomodation you could wish for, We felt a bit cheeky at first comparing the various brochures they were waving at us, but soon realised the cost was going to be comparable with the smaller Islands, so after looking at a few, plumped for the hotel Olympia just outside Fira, from the photo's it looked small, tidy and had a nice pool. We negotiated the price of about 35 Euro per night including breakfast and transport to the hotel. So into the mini bus with Artimis, A great character who kept us regaled with stories of the island during the 15min transfer to the Hotel. Our room was lovely, Bright, clean and Airy with views out over the fields and vinyards to the sea beyond. Dumped the bags and down to the pool for a much needed refreshing dip, which was even better looking then the photos had promised. In the evening we walked into Fira (15 min walk) although the bus stopped at the end of the lane had we been so inclined, that and every subsequent night, we had a great time, good food and meeting lots of different people and Nationalities in this most friendly of Islands, During the day we hires a quad bike to get around some more of the island including the 'must see' sunset from Oia. Red and Black beaches, Ancient Theira and much more. And all the time knowing we had the lovely Olympia Hotel and Mr George to look after us for breakfast each morning. We eventually stayed 8 night's, and departed with some sadness for Athens and a couple of nights of the City before heading home. And as a last Pleasant Surprise, Artimis gave us a lift back down to the Harbour to catch our Ferry.
A genuinely friendly Hotel, on a beautiful Island made this one of our best holidays ever, we're planning a return visit to see Artimis and Mr George for our honeymoon next year and expect it to be even more magical than the first time.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view or over looking the pool.
