“DO NOT BOOK HERE, YOU'LL REGRET IT”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012

We booked with Villa Toula because it was recommended to us. When we arrived she told us a son story about her daughter being ill and how she stayed with her so she booked us an alternative accommodation. We felt sorry for her do we accepted and tried the alternative accommodation which was her friends place that not only made no attempt to speak with us but had her hotel in a dark back alley that was sketchy. The handle to the door of our bedroom was falling off, we needed to go outside to get to the bathroom and we never saw the owner nor any anyone else around during our stay. We felt unsafe and uncomfortable so we only stayed one night. Besides that we heard from a couple people that this sob story about her daughter is part of her game to get her friend business, not impressed.

We had a fantastic stay at villa toula. We were given orange juice on arrival and then shown our rooms. Breakfast was provided every morning. The rooms were clean. I felt the rooms were a bit small when looking at the price.
The staff were very friendly.
Overall it was good experience and I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone

If you're looking for a high-end place to stay, this is certainly not it.

However, if you're looking for a clean, comfortable and quiet place to spend your nights while you go out and see Santorini in the day, then this is an excellent option. Keep in mind that in a place like Santorini, where there's so much to see, the requirement isn't a room with luxury fittings, it's a clean (this is by far the most important aspect) place to stay, away from the bustle.

Villa Toula is situated just off the road from Main Square (as are many hotels in Fira) and it makes it a convenient option for those who want to have an afternoon siesta, if you're visiting in the heat of summer. Toula herself is a very friendly being, dropping us off to the airport herself, answering all our tourist-like questions about Santorini.

The rooms are a decent size for a couple and the bathroom is clean. While we were there, they cleaned every day and the sheets were clean too (no strange stains that got our imaginations worried). All in all, I think it's safe to say if we go back, we'd stay there again.

Toula was very helpful with places to go and do when I arrived. My room was upstairs with a balcony [11], and so got good light and breeze. It was clean and comfy and quite pleasant, especially the balcony. Breakfast was basic but adequate. A big plus is that it is 1 minute from the square, 2 minutes from the bus station but without the noise and frenzy of the main touristy areas, especially when the cruise boats are in.

Room Tip: Upsatirs is good

I stayed at Villa Toula for three days and would definitely stay there again - the price was perfect for a budget traveler and the location was good. Close to the city center (5-minute walk) and to the bus stops to go to beaches (ask owner Toula for beach towel!). Furniture is not new but comfortable; and room and bathroom were cleaned every day. Toula was super nice and even picked me up at and drove me to the airport for my flights. Small breakfast with coffee but I did not starve. I noticed some people commented on the TV but I had no time to watch the TV – I was in Santorini after all and the sunsets were book-perfect, who needs TV!!! Would recommend this place and if I ever go to Santorini, will stay there again – very nice family hotel!

this 'hotel' is more rooms to let, is the worst experience i have ever had during my long trip as a solo traveler.
the hotel itself its very old and the furnitures are so uncomfortable. beds like stone and tv without antenna,my room without balcony was looking over some other walls.
the worst thing was a dog barking all day and nigth from the neighbour's house, was upsetting espacially when you have tried to relax.
the lady running this hotel was ok.
i would never returned to that complex again

Good value, clean rooms close to the centre of Fira. Toula was welcoming and fothcoming with advice about the island. Transfer to the port was arranged free of charge. Highly recommended.
