Hotel in Santorini for 2 nights

I have found availability at Mystique in Oia and at Zannos Melatron in Pyrgos - We have never been to Santorini before any thoughts?

Oia is the most beautiful and architecturally authentic village. You'll be perched right on the cliff. Pyrgos is inland and although there are excellent views from that hotel it's not the same as being on the cliff.

There are lots more shops, galleries and restaurants in Oia than in Prygos.

We are traveling next Sept to Istanbul, Santorini, Rhodes and or Athens. We are using air miles flying into Istanbul and coming back to Seattle either through Santorini or Athens. Questions:

1. Recommendations for a hotel in Oia (or somewhere else) with a great view but mid-range in price.

2. What is the best way to get from Istanbul to Rhodes then to Santorini

3.Is there an optimun itinerary to get to all of these places in 12-14 days? We're hoping to spend 5 days in Istanbul.

Hey and welcome TYJT;) You may want to consider starting a new post for better exposure here?:) I know it's not easy being new..lol!

Nonetheless, for starters..assuming here that those 14 days (please make it at least 2 weeks considering the distance you're coming;) include the 5 days in Istanbul..in which case, leaves you 9 days (8 nights?)..check and sign up now for email alerts with www.olympicair.com/ www.aegeanair.com/ Considering time restraints, would fly from Istanbul to Rhodes (or Santorini) via Athens..you're way early for fligh/ferry schedules at this point, but some great deals do appear with the latter! Also keep en eye out at www.gtp.gr/ www.openseas.gr/ Blue Star ferries offer service between Rhodes and Santorini..it's an approx 7 hour journey..reason I mention to possibly fly to Santorini first, is that there is usually a wonderful overnight run departing Santorini just past midnight arriving Rhodes early in the morning around 7a..saves you precious time and you can book a cabin in lieu of a hotel room for the night..no time wasted! They don't run daily but often enough..usually every other day..or 3/4 times a week..depends on when in Sept you are going since many schedules go into 'shoulder'/seasonal changes around mid month! You can then fly back to Athens from Rhodes (or Santorini)..and spend at least a couple of finale nights in Athens..which will also ensure the long haul flight back home!

FWIW, keep in mind that when you stay anywhere for a couple of nighs, it really boils down to 1 full day..of course, how you plot out your itinerary is up to you..your prefs/travel style, etc..Happy planning to you..and ENjoY!
