“Marvellous Family Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Babis, the owner and the whole family were very friendly and helpful. He drove us to the port when we checked out of the hotel.Babis helped us also in booking the excursions and in renting a quad, also explaining to us the map and the beaches to visit.Great location next to the bus stop that can take you to Fira town and Kamari beach. Walk distance to fira town only 10 minutes. Small supermarket located close to the hotel. Good value of money, the room was clean. Breakfast was very basic and the room has a big balcony.

Clean, well located hotel, just outside Fira/Thira.
It's on the main road to Fira, so it can be a bit busy, but it's never noisy inside your room or in the lobby. We had a 4p-room and everything was OK: good shower, working toilet, TV, good beds, AC, 2 balconies (but it's always very windy on Santorini, so we hardly used the balcony). Rooms are cleaned every day! Nice pool, large parking lot for your (rental) car, breakfast is included, the lobby has free wifi-access and of course all the help you can get from Babis & his family. Very welcoming and helpful. Free shuttle to Fira on the hour. Free pick-up/drop-off at airport/port. It's just a very good place to stay while spending time on Santorini. Rent a car and drive around the island for a day or 2. Best beach for us (with 2 kids) was Perivolos.

Great value for money for the service you will receive....A lovely welcoming family with great customer service and hospitality. We got picked up from the airport straight to the hotel, he gave us fresh orange juice and maps and explained the main places to go. He even took us to the main town Fira with his mini-bus. The town Fira is very close by, best way to transport is by quad bike but there is a bus stop right outside the hotel with buses going to all beaches and main areas of the island.
Room was very, very clean and room service and breakfast was amazing. You can simply feel so comfortable in the hotel, you can sit in the lobby area at any time you want, take your laptop or iPad and use their wi-fi or computer. There's a bar and a beautiful swimming pool which you should take advantage of, its relaxing and very clean. A great hotel for our visit, we felt right at home. 100% Recommended.

Room Tip: Try get a room with a balcony, they're a great size, there is a table and 2 chairs for you to si...

We spent a few nights in Hotel Babis when we visited Santorini. We arrived via the ferry from Mykonos and were picked from the port. This is a family run hotel and we were welcomed with a refreshing cool drink. Our room was just as we expected, clean and budget sized.
The hotel offers hourly free several rides into the Fira towncenter, which we took advantage of. They also booked us on a tour to the volcano (the half day trip) and helped us hire a car. All the paperwork was done right in the hotel and very convenient. They also have a good sized pool which my son enjoyed.
All in all, this is a great base to explore Santorini from at a much lesser cost and a bit away from the crowds. I have since recommended this hotel to our friends.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the road but it wasn't noisy and offered a bit of a view.

From when the owner picked me up at the port on arrival on the island until he dropped me off at the airport when I left, he and his family were very eager to help make sure that I got to do everything I wanted to do. They not only offered suggestions and information, but many useful rides, and if I wanted them to they would have arranged other things(tours, cars, laundry) as much as they could. They really want to help.

My room had a view of the village and the sea in the distance and had air conditioning/tv/fridge/balcony for a low price. There is a swimming pool, free wi-fi in the lobby, free breakfast, and many free rides. It is on the route of most of the buses on the island which stop at or very close to the hotel and is also within a reasonable walk from the main bus station.
It is even closer to a supermarket, bakery, some restaurants/cafe, laundry, etc also.

I absolutely recommend this place to anyone who doesn't insist on being directly on the cliff or beach. I was here for 3 nights in early June 2012.

Close to the airport and bus stop outside the hotel.

Very clean,they are very attentive and anticipated our need.

The father , his son ,Babis, and Babis wife makes you feel like your a member of the family.
Very protective and watch out for your safety and comfort.
Goes beyond of what is expected.

Shuttle to and from airport,even drove us to Fira and picked us up from port after our tour .

Highly recommends for family and vacationer looking for a quiet place to rest after a buzy day.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms with balcony overlooking the aegean sea. Street side ,not buzy even if you are lig...

We stayed here for three days and we were very lucky to have a very friendly, accomodating and helpful treatment from the staff and owner of the hotel(father,son and wife).The hotel has gorgeous swimming pool, free wi-fi and free transfer from airport to hotel and vice versa . Just let them know ahead of time if you need assistance or accomodation....The rooms were very clean and lovely .....Breakfast was great,too. So, this is a perfect place to stay and we will always recommend this hotel to our friends and family.
