“Great location, tiny, aged rooms”
Reviewed 12 June 2011

Perhaps we had the smallest room in the place?
Negatives: To have a shower meant the shower curtain clung to me as the shower was so tiny. We couldn't put our bags anywhere due to lack of space. Avoid the free shuttle to the port - perished tires on a road where you really want everything working on your car. Plus the driver was constantly on his mobile phone.
Positives: Great view! Nothing like having breakfast overlooking cruise ships. The lady running the hotel is nice and we found her quite helpful.

Our stay at Caldera Studios was wonderful. Location is great, both for watching the beautiful sunsets and for exploring the island. The host is lovely and gave all guests personal attention. For instance, she brought us complementary glasses of wine while we were sitting on the balcony watching the sunset. This is a very comfortable and cozy place, and it is great value for your money in Santorini!

Our ferry from Crete was delayed a day by bad weather. No matter. The complimentary shuttle up to the top of Fira was waiting for us at the dock. They carry your bags up and down the charmingly steep paths. Koula was waiting with a cup of coffee or a fresh drink and all of the information we needed about the island. Someone called Santorini "Cinque Terre on steroids." The suites with their private decks are ideally sited overlooking the Caldera and up through the magical town hanging on the cliff. Koula and her staff could not have been more delightful. You feel immediately like a good friend. Highly recommended.

Clean basic accommodations. Wonderful staff - very personable and helpful. The view is amazing from the balcony overlooking pristine blue ocean. Incredible sunsets.
Close to restaurants, shops, etc. We think of hte simplicity here almost daily....

Our whole experience in Santorini was wonderful. Aside from the beauty of the location and the crystal clear waters at the various beaches (Perovolaso was the BEST!), the service received at Caldera Studios was the best we had ever received.

Koula, the owner and manager treated us as family the whole time we were there. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the views incredible.

As my wife is pregnant, the service was lifted to another level with Koula replacing the water in the jacuzzi especially for my wife, ordering meals in, offering valuable advice regarding safe places to travel around Santorini (flat plains and flat beaches) and so much more. This was over and above our expectations.

We visited cities in Paris and Italy and in never experienced service above average. We are very happy that our final stay was Santorini as it was the best way to finish.

We would recommend Caldera Studios to everyone and we look forward to returning again soon with friends and family.

my brother and I stayed in caldera studios for 2 nights, it was a last minute booking (from the airport) but they accomodated us immediately, (btw they have free pick up service which is great!) Koula, the manager was very a very friendly and welcoming host, and she made us feel at home. the view from the balcony is amazing, and you don't have to go far to enjoy the sunset.. all the better when you are enjoying the view from the jacuzzi!
the 2 nights in Fira was very enjoyable, thanks to caldera studios, its location is near the town, and the rooms are very comfortable, breakfast is great as well! Definitely will recommend this to my friends because it is value for money.

The views from every balcony are amazing. The accommodations are basic, but you cannot beat the price. We bought a couple bottles of wine and watched the sunset from our balcony. Very romantic and unforgettable. The breakfast was also very good. It would be nice if there was a pool, but the price would be much more expensive if that was the case.
