El Greco is a good 4 starts hotel, with nice and smiling people at the reception and at the bar. It is just our Fira so it is possible to reach the walking area of Fira in 5 minutes. Only the rooms around the reception face the "caldera" but are probably the most noisy because they are close to the main road (traffic day and night). All the other room don't allow to have a view on the caldera (they face the 3 swimming pools of the hotel) but are more quiet during the night.
El Greco people will help you with car/bike renting, tours and everything.
Something could be better:
1. breackfast: not so satisfactiory and too small room for the dimensions of the hotel
2. beds around the swimming pools: they are not really clean.....not very nice to see..
3. room: if your room has a small window on top, take care you can close it; I had such a room with 2 small windows 4 meter high and without closures against the light, so in the morning I was up at 6 o'clock (!!); I provided to close one of it with 2 pillows but I could not reach the second one; ask to the reception to solve this!
By the way, the position of El Greco is very good and in 20 minutes by a scooter it is possible to reach the extreeme points of the island.
