“Great simple hotel!”
Reviewed 30 August 2010

I've spent 4 nights in this hotel and I would certainly recommend it. It's simple, but very adequate to a leisure trip in an island. Location is defenitely the strongest point of the hotel. It's close to Fira center (bars, restaurant and shops) and the bus station is in walking distance, so if you´re thinking about doing the island without having to rent a car or a bike, this is a great accommodation option.
Breakfast is simple (toast, juice, cereals, coffee, milk, ham, cheese, yogurt) ,but satisfactory. The pool was clean and big enough for swimming by the end of the afternoon after a long day at the beach.
May be the only negative point is that the free wi-fi connection was only available in the reception, not in the rooms.

Well we're here right now and loving the hotel so much we can't wait to post a review! We researched places to stay in Santorini before we came - most of the hotels with pools were just out of our price bracket but at 65 euros per night Nissos Thira seemed to fit the bill - and it really does! It is completely centrally located in Thira, literally a two- minute walk from the famous 'Caldera Sunset' view (where hotels are ten times the price) and has a lovely clean pool, spacious comfortable rooms, (quiet at the back overlooking the pool) and very helpful friendly staff. Endless hot water and working showers ( in a greek two star!) - just avoid the tiny clingy shower curtain. Don't hesitate, this is a fabulous little hotel and you won't be sorry :-)

Hello eveyone. I have a story i'll try and make short. excuse my grammer. So my wife an I booked a room at a different hotel for more $ as well. turned out the AC didnt work, no running water, and the staff was full of trickory. the next moring i went wandering around the island, and bam right there was Nissos Thira Hotel. I met the owner MANOLIS, and thank god he had 1 room left for the exact amount of nights i needed. i carried my bags, woke up the wife and moved right in. this hotel was CLEAN, Friendly and Convienent. the Airconditioner wored full blast. had a pool, and breakfast as well. I cant say anything more. I wish i had known of this hotel before hand. Seriously. Ive told a few family relatives that are bookin agents about this hidden gem and they have since booked a few patrons and they feel the same way. If i only had known i would have saved $, time, and 2 nights lost sleep. If anyone had any questions please contact me. I cant rave enough about this place. Its what you want. a clean hotel, big clean bathroom/shower with HOT water (hard to find on the islands) and family run. Mr Manolis and his staff were great! a funny part of my trip was i went rock climbing and ripped my brandnew 200$ sneakers, i was soo Pissed off, i went to the room, and asked for a sewing kit, they had that too. i needed sneakers for another 3 weeks on vaca. lol. watch those sneakers on the cliffs. Its right in the heart of everything. walk to the restaurants, clubs, moped rentals and all. Also i do reccoment renting a QUad with atleast 200CC for two people to tour the island. we toured every INCH of that island with this beast of a quad. the low power ones will take you 45 min. to goto beach, dont do it, dont cheap out. everyone wheels and deals. anyways. I hope someday to visit my friends at Nissos Thira hotel again some day.

We stayed at the Nissos for 3 nights.....a lovely little hotel with a nice pool. Great location. Close to the caldera, bus station and shopping.

We stayed 5 nights at the hotel, we agree with the previous reviews:
*Location is ok, within walking distance from the bus station and the caldera front walk
*Price is excellent (we paid 50 euros/night)
*Pool is a plus
*Breakfast is far to basic. Better enjoy a local yogurt somewhere else ;)
*Staff was friendly, they spoke english
*Our room was facing the pool, had a big terrace and therefore it was quiet.

This is a great little hotel. Our room was quite large and very clean. We asked for a room away from the street as it could be a bit loud with all of the traffic. We had a room off of the pool and it was very quiet. The location was great. You could easily walk to the caldera (volcano-cliffs) in 10 mins. The breakfast was fair. There was meat and cheese so at least you could get some protein rather than just eating toast and cereal as at many other locations. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The best feature of this hotel was the pool and pool area. The pool was very clean with lots of comfy chairs around it. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Liked — the pool, large quiet room
  • Disliked — the street out front was rather noisy
