Stayed a week with wife in the Lauda hotel and would definitely stay again if I was in Oia. The cave room was fairly basically furnished but did the job just fine, bed was very comfy and the shower was perfectly fine, so that was good enough for us. Fridge for keeping beer and water cold, sink, hotplate, all we needed. We had a SUPERB view of the caldera from the sun terrace in front of our room. All rooms have a small terrace, some bigger than others, where you can sunbathe if you want. We had more steps than anyone else to get up to street level, but this was not a problem, we are not mega-fit but are not unfit either. The steps might be an issue for elderly people.
Lauda's rooms are quiet, the rooms being down steps from street level (not that the street is loud, as it's pedestrian only), but it is perfectly located for the town. At least 2 dozen restaurants, loads of souvenir shops, several small supermarkets, and the famous sunset view are all within 5 min walk. Location is a big plus point.
Lauda's pool is great, never struggled to get a lounger or space under a parasol. Free Wifi in the pool area.
Rooms cleaned everyday, new sheets and towels.
Nectarina (the manager) is great, speaks fantastic English, much better than my Greek.
Would highly recommend.More
