“Highlight of our trip to Greece!”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

We were unsure of visiting Santorini due to the high tourism rate, but a friend who had stayed at Ecoxenia convinced me to book a room there, and I am so glad we did! Ecoxenia is a wonderfully relaxing peaceful oasis and Christopher and his family deserve all the rave reviews they are receiving. It is hard to explain how delightful our experience was--we felt so at home there and the courtesy and generosity extended by Christopher and his family was amazing. The location is perfect--close to all the tourist sites you might want to view, but actually I would recommend Ecoxenia as a relaxing getaway all on it's own. We certainly hope to go back.

At first, we just wanted to stay in Oia for 6 days, but we stayed 2 days more because we had very good time in Ecoxenia!!! Christopher came to pick us up in Oia bus station when we arrived. (also when we leaved!!!!). He offered us a welcome drink while we check in. At the same time, he also explained everything for the room and what we can do in Oia.
The location of Ecoxenia is not far from the center of Oia (10 mins walk), but you could have a quiet and private place. The room is clean and balcony is big (you can enjoy the most beautiful sunset from your balcony!!!). If you rent a car or motorbike, there is a free parking space for you!!
We were very relaxed in Ecoxenia. Highly recommend to stay here!!
Thank you. Christopher

This hotel has amazing view from all room, to the garden and sea. Its very close to Oia, but not close enough for the noise bothering, so its peaceful. The beautiful garden with hammocks is just the spot to relax.
Owner Christopher is really really nice. He helped us with rentals, excursion tickets, laundry and showed us the best places to visit in santorini (including some private beaches you cant find on your own). We felt so wellcomed and didnt have to worry about a thing while staying there. Ï truly recomend this hotel to anyone who visits santorini.

Room Tip: All rooms have great view, so it doesnt matter which you pick.

This place was in all aspects more than nice, therefor I almost didn't want/need to explore the island anymore!
Christopher is a wonderful, warmhearted owner who introduces you to the real Santorini by explaining the map and giving super-advices of where to go, to eat, drink, hang around, enjoy the view.

Room Tip: if you like daylight and broad view, ask for a room upstairs, if you like cosyness, shelter and to e...

I chose Ecoxenia because I didn't want to stay at touristy places, especially in Aug. It's slightly a walk (15min) from the Oia center, but the serenity of the room and view were great! Chris the owner is very nice, knowledgeable and helpful to plan out the day, like having a family friend. The room is like an apartment with a kitchenette which I used to cut up some fruits to enjoy on my private terrace. I even had dinner with Chris who everyone in Oia seems to know! It was really nice and an experience you would not get from a hotel. The real Greek experience and warm hospitality!

We stayed at ecoxenia following à friend advise.... We were So happy! Ecoxenia is perfectly located, you cant find better place In santorini with a such good price! Ideal for a couple or a small family! You are 5 minutes from oia by scooter! Chrostopher and his brother are so kind, we spent an incredible time there!

To me, the most interesting aspect of the hotel is that it is 2 min (by car) away from downtown Oia where you can find all the action you want. (a public parking place makes it very convenient to drop your car at the entrance of the town)

The family running the hotel is very welcoming.
