We stayed at the Atrina last August for a few days and had a terrific time. The location of the hotel could hardly be better. Easy walking distance into Oia, indeed you are right there. For us, Oia was the best location in Santorini. Especially at night it is just magical.
The views from Atrina are also superb. Looking out at the caldera is hypnotic. You can just stare, and look, and lose yourself. As has been said before, there are few other views like it in the world. If you are thinking about whether a visit to Santorini is worth it -- just go.
The room we had was large, with two bedrooms. High ceiling, built into the mountain. Bright. It was relatively well cared for but, in a few spots there was some obvious wear and tear and a few things could have been better cared for. The beds were comfortable, the room never hot.
Breakfast was served on the large patio, with a beautiful view. Big shade umbrella if you wanted to open it. Huge basket of fresh breads/muffins, huge plate of delicious yogurt and honey, excellent juice and coffee. Bkfst like that was terrific. The pool is small yet, it was certainly large enough to cool off and, even in August, the pool area was not crowded. Staff at the hotel was very nice, on the ball, efficient.
If there is one place the hotel could use some improvement was at the front desk, so to speak. While Atrina is a hotel, it doesn't really have all the services of a hotel, it is much more of a boutique. You need to be more independent as a guest. That is fine. Yet, in that situation we thought the owner should be more informative, welcoming. While she was happy to greet guests, there simply wasn't the "welcome" we expected or the willingness to offer suggestions, ideas, etc. We got the feeling that while we were welcomed, the owner would be just as happy if we weren't there. That might sound a bit negative, it shouldn't be read that way. Yet, some improvement would be helpful. Also, all hotels in Oia in August are expensive, including Atrina. With all its good points, its location, rooms, etc., it is still likely one of your best options.
