I stayed for a whole week in this charming hotel and it was just fantastic. For anyone who has never been Oia before, pls arrange for the reception to collect you from the airport as I can guarantee it is not the easiest place in the world to find any building as there are barely any proper maps. I am so glad I had a driver and someone to help me with my luggage cause there is no way I can find the hotel otherwise!
Other than that, this is a lovely hotel! It was such a joy for me to just relax by the sun and the hot and cold tub too. I was there in July and geez was the weather way too hot. Thank god for the cold tub, I spent a lot of time there as you can imagine.
The room itself was so charming. As I was staying alone and had a really good deal, I expected a smaller room but instead I was given such a big studio flat. It is absolutely stunning with white washed walls, very Greek ... and absolutely cooling in the weather. There is also a small kitchenette for cooking and making drinks which was absolutely lovely as Oia can be super expensive!
The view was spectacular, my flat overlooks the sea/lake.. it has always been my dream to go to Santorini and with this trip, I felt my dream was fulfilled more than I expect... The entire place is a postcard view.. Even as I type this I can feel a smile creep onto my face. That's how good the holliday was.
Anyway back to the hotel, the hosts are absolute sweethearts! They make the best, freshest, Greek breakfast ever.. I almost forget to eat lunch most days! And the amazing thing about this place is that because it's such a hospitable place, all the residents make so much effort and are so friendly to each other. I have made so many new friends all over the world from this holiday alone, which is quite something.
All in all, this hotel is a MUST! It is fantastic, stylish and is a home away from home for me. I wil definitely come back! :)
