We just got back from two weeks in Greece and Turkey . We stayed 3 nights at the Scirocco and we enjoyed our experience.
The owner was very nice and picked us up and dropped us off at the airport for no extra charge. The location is perfect - right on the cliff side overlooking the caldera. The room was in a typical cyclades style - not fancy but quite charming. The balcony was great, and what a view!
If you're tall you won't like the beds too much, since it had a wooden frame with posts at each end. I'm 6'2'' and don't like my feet hitting anything so we ended up sleeping across the 2 twin beds. Unorthodox but it worked!
The breakfast were pretty weak. Coffee, juice, bread, a bit of plain yoghurt, a bit of cheese spread, jam and honey. Not worth the 5 extra euros each. After one time, we just went to the grocery store and bought some cold cuts, sliced cheese, a loaf of bread, orange juice, and instant coffee which we enjoyed a lot more. Luckily the room had a fridge and hot plate with some pots, plates and utensils.
Despite the above I still give it 4 stars as it was a good value for about $120 Canadian a night. The location can't be beat in Fira.
If you want a nice place without luxury or pampering this is a great place to stay - although next time I would stay in Oia instead of Fira since its so beautiful.
