My husband and I stayed at this hotel in early June. We loved our stay at this hotel. Frankly, Anna was the most friendly, helpful and welcoming person. She is great at her job and made our stay more enjoyable. She truly understands customer service. She upgraded our room to an apartment room which was a nice treat (If you can book room 12, it's wonderful.), gave us information on the local sites and directions to the grocery stores. She was also kind enough to store our bags for us the next day since our ferry didn’t leave until the late afternoon. The baggage gentleman from the Ukraine was also very nice and helpful. If you’re concerned about all the steps and how you’ll carry your bags, don’t let that deter you as they have a staff member who will carry your bags for you. Wonderful staff overall. The location of this hotel was perfect and the hotel was quiet since the street in front of it does not allow vehicles and is only open to foot traffic. The hotel is only a couple of blocks from the main bus terminal which makes it even more convenient. There’s no need to rent a car in Santorini since the buses run everywhere with a frequent and very reliable schedule.
If you go to Santorini you have to stay at a hotel on the cliff of the caldera, because that view is what makes Santorini such an incredible island. The view was amazing from our terrace, I could have sat there all day just admiring the view. Plus with the room being built into the side of the cliff it makes it a rather unique room and adds to the experience.
I could not say enough good about this hotel and the service we received. I do not feel we could have chosen a better hotel or had a better experience. If I ever return to Santorini I wouldn’t even bother with trying to find any other hotel as I don’t think I could find one in a better location or more beautiful. If I could give more than 5 stars I would as this place and the service certainly deserves it. My only regret is that I did not stay there longer.
