Hotel is in a very good location, within a walking distance from bustling Fira's center and next to a bus station. We walked all the time and even did the 2 hr hike to Oia. Rented a car to visit other parts of the island in the south and east coasts. The hotel is manned by the owner Sofia and...

We were pleasantly suprised by this cute, cosy little hotel. Although not on the caldera, it was just one narrow alley behind in a very scenic, narrow foot-only street. It had a beautiful veranda (though not private) and nice island furniture in the room. Although room was on the small site, it could definitely fit 2 pleople. Common areas were...

Solid, reasonably-priced small family hotel - the rooms aren't big, but the balcony just outside extended their reach and was a great spot to chill at night for a picnic supper with a bottle of wine while watching the light of the early evening recede. Sofia runs the place and the well-stocked shop downstairs and with Giannis helping out they...

We had a good stay in this hotel. The owner has the shop below and is always available for any questions you might have. The little pool is charming and surrounded by a well cared for garden. There are restaurants and bars near by, and an easy walk to Fira though a bit too packed with people for my liking....

Our room was good size for 2 people. There is a free airport shuttle you can arrange with the hotel however pretty easy to get around santorini on the bus also. Close walk to the main square in Fira. Hotel was quite and not loud like I had read in another review. The reception is in the shop directly below...

The hotel is located in Firostefani, about 20 walks to Fira. The walk downhill is generally okay but the walk back up can be very tiring because of the slope.There is a bus stop near the hotel but one bus ride is about 1.80 euros? I think I would rather walk. You would need to walk to and fro Fira...

Staying at sofia hotel in firostefani was an amazing experience. Giannis is one of the few people in this island that made us feel welcome. We were not expecting much as we booked it through an agency but when we got there and saw the amazing room we were staying at, with the fantastic view, we were really glad to...
