Spent 3 nights at the Lauda Hotel at the end of June, and it was a wonderful experience. A week prior to arrival I called the hotel to see if they had availability, and Nectarina pencilled us in. She was so kind and helpful on the phone, and made me feel comfortable with their phone-in reservation system. Upon arrival, Nectarina greeted us warmly. She is a gem - so kind and friendly. I felt like she was my long lost cousin - as she treated me like family during my entire stay, and her smile and laugh were infectious. She makes the Lauda the charming hotel that it is. Nectarina showed us 2 room choices - one a few steps up from the pool, and the 2nd one right directly in front of the pool. Chose the one right on the pool level due to its proximity to the pool and the view of the caldera from the outdoor tables and chairs by the railing. The room was quite small and very basic, but had everything we needed, including a small refrigerator. Nectarina let us use a coffee pot, and we were able to enjoy coffee overlooking the caldera each morning. Perfection!!! We enjoyed meeting guests poolside, and the hotel had a fun, relaxed atmosphere. It is a family-run operation, and everyone aims to please. The pool is GREAT!! The location is in the heart of Oia, neighboring hotels cost 4 times as much! If you are looking for a good location, nice view of the caldera, reasonable rates, and a true Greek experience, then the Lauda is for you! If you had difficulty with stairs, look elsewhere. There were about 86 steps down to pool level - part of the charm of Oia! The Lauda met our needs perfectly, and we hope to return in the future. Go there! You will love it!

While we usually try to travel on a budget, we were visiting our friend in Oia who owns a bookstore there, and wanted to stay close. We splurged a bit on Lauda Hotel, but considering what we got for our money, I would do it again in a heartbeat! To tell you the truth, while it was a splurge to us, it was definitely a real bargain!

First, the location is breathtakingly beautiful. There are over 100 steps down to the rooms (which are built in caves, soooo cool!) so this hotel is not good for those who can't walk stairs. Otherwise, this location is fabulous, and the stairs are good exercise considering the amazing desire to relax and take in the surroundings. Every angle overlooks the sea, including from the pool (cool, clean, crisp, luxurious), and there was nothing better then preparing breakfast in our little kitchenette and enjoying it out on our patio. I could have stayed all day, everyday, by the hotel pool and felt satisfied with my vacation (which is not my usual travel style, especially not for an entire week).

The staff is really friendly and helpful, including helping to take your bags up and down the stairs. The buildings are well maintained and the rooms are cleaned daily (and cleaned well). I felt like royalty living in luxurious accommodations. It is also one of the most romantic places I've every stayed, although there are rooms set up for families and groups of friends also. I can't wait for my next stay at Lauda Hotel!

My husband, myself and adult daughter stayed here the first week of June before things really get packed, they were still busy but always had time for everyone staying there. It is a family run business, handled in a warm and caring family way. Nectarina was everything you could ask for in a hostess, Nikos is your real bit of Greek culture. We had a cave room, which was really well set up and cool when it was hot outside. The pool was fabulous with stunning views everywhere and an amazing place to relax after a busy day, you get free wi fi there too. Everything you might need is so conveniently situated close to the hotel aswell. You'll get fit climbing the stairs too, but every one of them is worth it just to stay there.

Room Tip: Start ringing or faxing early in April to get hold of them. Winters for them are spent in Athens.

We spent 5 nights at Lauda and loved every single one of them. We were greeted by the wonderful host, Nectarina who is just great. She has the ability to make you smile every time you talk to her and will bend over backwards to try to help you.
We enjoyed the huge balcony every morning with our own cooked breakfast and most of the nights we cooked our own dinner (including fresh fish). They provide all your cooking utensils. Go next door, get some fresh veggies, fresh feta cheese and nice bottle of Santorini wine and you are in for a treat! Everybody will envy you. That's how we felt.
This place is simply magical, family owned, simple, affordable and worth every penny. If you are planning a trip to Santorini, stay here! WHY NOT?

Room Tip: Spend more for a bigger room, its worth it!

This was my second trip back to Santorini, having previously stayed in Thira. Oia and Thira are both beautiful but I was worried that Oia might be the more touristy, crowded of the two because it is much smaller. It can get busy at peak cruise-ship docking time, however Lauda is tucked away so well you may think you're the only guest in town. Our rooms had a private balcony and sunning area with an uninterrupted view of the Caldera. The pool, although small, was never crowded and always relaxing.

The rooms are very simple so don't expect luxury, but because they are built far back into the cliffside, they are cool and dark after a hot Greek day. Also some of them have kitchen facilities so you can make your own meals to enjoy on your private balcony. Staff are friendly, helpful (they carry your bags down the stairs, don't worry!) and easygoing. A real winner on Santorini.
