Trying to book a hotel from halfway across the world is not easy. I wanted to be in a traditional white-washed cave house with amazing views of the caldera, within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. This place met all of my basic criteria so after reading all the other reviews, I made the leap of faith and booked it online. When we got there, we fell in love. I paid for the airport transfers which made everything so much more convenient. A man was waiting with our names on a card at the airport. Then another hotel staffer was waiting at the end of the street near the hotel to carry our suitcase. The hotel is beautifully located in a pedestrian zone that sparkles at night. We were served a bottle of local sparkling wine as a welcome to our room. When we awoke the next morning to see the caldera view, it was breathtaking. We probably spent the first 5 hours just looking at the view without even leaving the privacy of our hotel terrace. Breakfast was lovely, served right at our own little table. I had read reviews that said the hotel is only half-updated, and that is true. The bed was small, low, and hard. The towels were not plush, in fact probably over-washed and fraying. The TV....? We didn't even turn it on but it was small in a corner. But if you want absolute luxury, then you have to pay those prices. This place was perfect for what we wanted and I would recommend it to those who prioritize location, view, and service over some of the other features of hotels. Too bad we couldn't stay longer!!!
