“Very Nice Hotel and great value for money”
Reviewed 16 May 2012

This hotel is very relaxing and I really enjoyed our stay.
It is a good 15 minutes walk to Oia but it is a nice walk in.

We really liked this hotel. It was quiet and peaceful, has nice pool and restaurant areas, small terraces outside the rooms with chairs, tables and umbrellas. It is an easy walk into Oia. You do need to be cautious when it's dark, as you're on the road. We didn't feel we needed a car. The bus stops within 1 block's distance.
The studio we had was spacious and quaint. There are 2 seating areas that can convert to single beds. There is small fridge, sink, cups, dishes and a kettle. The only negative for me was the mattress was kind of uncomfortable. It took a little practice to learn how to shower in the handheld showers that are common here, but no big deal. There is a computer in the reception area and I think wireless can be accessed there too. No wifi in the rooms. The pool is really nice as well.
Daniella in the restaurant was sweet and delightful, helped us learn some Greek phrases. Breakfast was simple, but good - fresh bread, croissants, juice, coffee/tea, meat/cheese or a cooked egg. The restaurant is fine, offering simple dishes that are satisfying. We ate there several times and it met our needs. It's a beautiful place to sit on the terrace and relax. The reception was also very helpful. They arranged transport to and from the ferry. Overall, I felt it was a good value and just what we were looking for.

Beautiful location, great service, warm decoration, welcoming staff, nothing went wrong with our stay in Finikias place.
The bedrooms were clean, the food in the restaurant was the best in all Oia (and we tried many as we stayed in Santorini for 10 days).
Would recommend it to all our friends!

Finikia's place in itself is in a good location about 2kms outside Oia, and there is a lovely coastal path to walk along to get into Oia. The rooms are adequate - typical of the island with a tradional cave-like feel and clean, all with exterior doors.
However,our welcome was cold and unfriendly and we felt that we were being a nuisance to the Owner/Manager who was more concerned with getting the paperwork sorted than showing us to our rooms and we were exhausted after an early morning flight. Granted his English wasn't too good but there was no smile and very negative body language.
Once in our room we discovered that if we used the pop-up plug then all the water from the basin ran straight down out of the waste pipe and on to the bathroom floor and round our feet - we reported this to the Owner who literally just shrugged his shoulders. So we washed under a running tap which reduced the leak for the rest of our stay there as nothing was done.

Breakfast is served in the rooftop restaurant which has spectacular views, but is the same every day and brought to you on a tray so there's no choice - tho the hard boiled eggs alternated with ham! However, it was enough and the Bulgarian manager of the restaurant was very hard-working and very helpful. We felt very concerned to hear that he was working a 10 to 12 hour and didn't get a day off, contrary to the terms in his contract.
Having said all of this, we would go back to Finikia's Place as the other options are in Oia and more expensive

Room Tip: All the rooms have direct access to the outside and have good views

Basic but very clean comfortable accommodation

Superb location, close enough to Oia to walk comfortably in and out of town, otherwise very handy for bus stops

Lovely pool

Helpful staff

Great view from restuarant

Good food

Would go back in the blink of an eye

Just back from 8th visit to Santorini and this hotel. It just gets better each time. Excellent food, excellent location, and excellent company. The hotel is simple, traditional, spotless and well looked after. So it doesn't have a caldera view - but walk across the road and up the hill and you have one all to yourself. We actually like the view over the islands rather than the caldera as we think we would find it claustrophobic after a while.

As for the sunsets - yes they are beautiful. But don't disappear as soon as the sun goes down. Wait awhile and see the sky light up as the sun has gone deep over the horizon. That is when the real colour emerges. Unfortunately the vast majority of people walk away the second the sun has gone, and then grumble that the sunsets are better at home. They have missed the real beauty. Don't be in too much of a hurry - relax and enjoy a drink on the rooftop or your terrace.

All in all another excellent two weeks - and we will definately be back again. The hotel has a real family welcome and the people there are very helpful in every way.

Finikia's Place was the perfect destination for us for half of our trip in Santorini. Clean, well presented, quiet and within walking distance of the stunning Oia. The view, though not of the caldera, is beautiful, especially from the lovely (and reasonable) restaurant. The sunsets are stunning (we thought even better than Oia as you could see the entire bay with the islands in the distance.) The pool is very well kept, and quiet. We were pleased that we were staying slightly outside of of one the main towns - we got peace when we wanted it! In summary:

Beautiful clean rooms decorated in a traditionally style - simple but elegant with a Santorini feel
Very reasonable prices
A great restaurant, with lovely breakfast (included) and open for lunch and stunning sunset dinners. We particularly liked the salads
A 15 minute walk to Oia
Quiet and blissful - no-one over-looking our room or the hotel grounds and we had a private balcony with an umbrella
Don't expect a TV, but why would you need one when you're in Santorini
The hotel organised us a taxi from the airport - it was 30 euros, which we thought a bit steep - but worth it as we didn't want to fight for a taxi!
