“Hotel Babis was perfect!”
Reviewed August 24, 2010

Hotel Babis was exactly what we were looking for. It is family owned and Babis and his wife were so welcoming and nice. Great complimentary breakfast served in the morning. We felt like we were the only guests because they were so helpful and attentive to us. They helped us find activites, rent mopeds, and find restaurants.
The only thing that presented a problem was the location. It's close to Fira, but walking takes about 20 minutes. Babis is kind enough to drive you in to Fira, but getting home is annoying. Very close to a bus stop though!
Babis also brings and picks you up from the airport!
Highly recommend this hotel!!

I did a lot of research and I found a cute, beautiful guesthouse in Karterados, a small village 10 minutes outside of Fira. The guesthouse is family owned and it run very well. They have clean, but small rooms but we loved them!! The owners were simply wonderful! They offer free rides to Fira as well to/and from the main port in Fira. We took advantage of those rides. Also...there is a bus stop about 5-10 min walk from the guesthouse which takes you to Fira/Oia. It's a quiet area so there is nothing to do in the immediate area. Also.. you can take the buses to Kamari Beach. They don't speak much English at the Bus station but they have signs and times of buses leaving for certain destinations. They also offered a free breakfast which was pretty good.

I don't usually write reviews but felt it was important to let people know what a fantastic Hotel Babis is, by far the best of our Greek island hopping.

The rates are very reasonable and the family cater for all your needs, my boyfriend and I needed to catch the overnight ferry (leaving at 12.30am). Babis personally stayed up to give us a lift to the ferry port. The rooms, breakfast, pool and service were all perfect.

Babis and his family go above and beyond to help you enjoy your stay in Santorini, I cannot reccommend enough.

Hotel Babis was the best hotel I have stayed at in the Greek Islands to date, this is my second time in Santorini. Babis and his family are the kindest people you will meet, they go above and beyond for the price you pay to stay there. Babis picks you up from the port or airport and will drive you into town anytime day or night. There is a bus stop out the front to go down to the beaches which is vey easy. Its also only a 10 minute walk into Fira town.
The rooms were nice and clean with daily service, aircon, tv, fridge and a balcony.
The pool is lovely to spend the day at, there is no restaurant but babis will go and pick up a takeaway order for you and bring it back.
Staying here made our trip to Santorini, I will come back here in a heartbeat, hopefully sooner rather than later!
Thank you Babis we miss you already. 'Party every day, hey!' :)

The owner met us at the ferry dock and drove us back to his hotel, all the while telling us about the history of the island and good places to visit. Upon arrival we were immediately offered a beverage and to sit back and relax while we were signed in. Very stress free. One of the most friendly, welcoming hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff was great and always making sure we were happy and content. Has a pool and all rooms featured a private bathroom and fridge with working A/C. Breakfast is included (you won't go hungry). Grocery store within walking distance. Fira (capital of Santorini) was a 1km walk away OR the staff would drive you there in one of their vehicles.
