“Good location”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We stayed there for 3 nights. Great location, close to centre of Oia. The room a little bit old-fashioned, old furnitures, but in general was fine. The staff are great, although some of them did not really understand english very well. It is considered cheaper compared to other villas in Oia. Breakfast was ok.

We loved this place. While Niko may seem a little "rough around the edges" to some people, he really has a big heart and was great to us during our stay. Unlike a concierge who may be enjoying free dinners at your expense, Niko put us on to some great restaurants and helped us avoid more than one "tourist trap." He made us feel very welcome and will not soon be forgotten.

Nikos Villas is 200 meters from the center of Oia. There is an inside path that goes from the main bus station to the yellow church and then you have to walk a few meters on the road but then the path continues straight to the door of Nikos Villas. The location is perfect if you want a place that is quiet and yet central at the same time. There are 2 supermarkets near the hotel one is right at the other side of the street and the other 50 meters away. I actually liked Niko the owner. His whole family is from Santorini. He has a unique typically greek personality. He will tell you stories about the island and the history of his hotel. He will recommend a car rental, and a restaurant and what to do on the island. The palace is beautiful, they change sheets every day. The furniture are also typically greek (which I liked). We had a unit with 3 rooms: Living-room + kitchen, bedroom and a second floor bedroom for my daughter (look at the pictures that I added). The car and ATV rental places are also next door. We also like the breakfast which included fresh orange juice every day. Niko also told us about dinner at Amudi-Bay which was fantastic. All in all we had supreme time.

Room Tip: Get the top larger units which has a more panoramic view.

While the views from Nikos Villas are certainly amazing, we had a terrible time. Nikos' demeanor, the dated furnishings and poor management are not worthy of the establishment's postcard perfect location or the rates. We are a family of four; two young girls traveling with another family with girls of similar ages. We were very rudely received on our arrival at reception and told abruptly, without any salutation or greeting, that they don't take young children; despite our booking forms clearly indicating all of our daughters' respective ages and us having pre-paid for the accommodation. Nikos and the booking agents blamed each other, but neither offered any apologies, solutions or alternatives. In fairness to Nikos, the place is certainly not young-family friendly (a deep pool and low walls everywhere), but his rude behavior to us on our arrival was certainly not justified. We were made to feel unwelcome; a feeling that did not leave us throughout our stay. While we were there, Santorini suffered unexpected power outages with an accompanying lack of piped water (taps, showers, toilets etc.). Whilst certainly not the fault of the proprietor, management did nothing to ease the obvious inconvenience to guests. We weren't offered candles, bottled water (and which we would have gladly payed for) or even buckets to fill the toilet cisterns with pool water. Only after buckets were asked for well into the second day of the outages were they provided. We found the housekeeping and general staff helpful and friendly but Nikos was unnecessarily rude and combative to us. We certainly won't be back and wouldn't recommend the establishment to our friends (even those who don't have young families).

This family owned property is well located near the center of Oia. Beautiful view over the Caldera.Common swimming pool. Regular greek breakfast. Disadvantage far away from the capital Fira. Car needed.

I keep reading about the place where this ''hotel' is situated but my opinion is that the view is definetely not enough to chose such a moderate place with such a rude owner.
To avoid !!! You can find thousands of descent and beautiful hotels to stay on the island with nice views, good services, plus you will not have to PAY for a wireless which is not even working!!! Design of rooms really old fashioned, resception available not all day like in the other hotels i've been. I CERTAINLY don't recommend this place.

Last time we stayed here (2 years ago) we had a room up by the pool. This time we had a room (number 11) right down at the bottom of the hotel. The room was fine - clean and a reasonable size if a little old-fashioned in its furnishings. The view across the caldera is stunning. But it is around 100 steps up to the main road so not for the unfit. Great place to stay though.
