“Fantastic”
Reviewed 19 August 2009

We visited Santorini for four days during July 2009 and unfortunately were only able to stay at hotel Keti for two nights due to leaving it too late to make our booking.

We found the hotel to be everything we expected it to be. The views were superb, the staff very friendly and the room affordable, clean and comfortable.

The room was relatively small and simply furnished which is all that you need in this beautiful location as there is absolutely no need to spend much time inside. The staff are very friendly and 5 euro per person breakfast was good value compared with what is on offer at the cafes in the town. The hotel has a number of small balconies/decks to enjoy the Caldera views and sunshine during the day.

We would definately recommend Hotel Keti for those who are looking for affordable accommodation with great views. If you are seeking a large room with higher quality furnishings then this might not be for you - try one of the hotels for twice the price nearby. There are also a number of relatively steep steps to get up and down from the footpath before you get to the rooms which some people might find a little difficult to deal with if they are unsteady on their feet.

This hotel is in a great location. The room was nice and the view was perfect. It could be a bit of a pain if you have a lot of luggage or a stroller due to the steps you have to walk down getting there but the hotel is totally worth it. The hotel employees were very helpful and nice.

My wife and I stayed in one of the superior rooms for 3 nights in the beginning of October which was just in the off peak season. The large balconey which we shared with 2 other units had the most sensational views where one could sit for hours watching the donkeys walking up and down the Caldera steps and the all the cruise ships coming and going. We booked directly with Yiannis who was an excellent host and found the off peak rates extremely good value. Our unit was self contained which enabled breakfast and or evening drinks to be had on that magnificent balconey. There are a lot of steps for heavy suitcases so travel light. Santorini is a must for visitors to the Greek Islands and Hotel Keiti with that location is the place to stay.

This Hotel really did a great job. From reserving the room to the arrival all went well.
I called when we arrived and had got to Fira and the receptionist Aina (I hope that I got this right) was fantastic. She offered to come and get us which did not end up being necessary.

She was the only person who we saw there, but the room was always cleaned when we got back so others must have been around.

The hotel is really well located in Fira, as you have fairly easy access if you are on a moped. 5 Min walk from a parking spot near the main Cathedral. There are stairs however, so if you dont do stairs this and most of Santorini is not the place for you.

The rooms were really clean and are split into different room types. The descriptions on the website are true and accurate. We took a superior room and ended up with the one on the lower level on the far right so had a private balcony along with a communal one.
There is so much hype about the best place to watch the Sunset in Santorini that we did not do so at the hotel our first two nights, but on the last did, and it was an amazing spot. If you are looking for a hotel with great views and sunset, this is the place.

Offered breakfast for an additional 7 euro per person and it is well put out and presented. However my opinion is with so many interesting places to be you can do better for breakfast. The rooms have fridges which is perfect if you want to have your own snack, wine etc particularly for sunset.

I found Fira really well situated if you are wanting to explore the whole island. Oia is definitely prettier, but is way on one end of the island, Fira is great for the airport, beaches, nights life, access to the old port and ferries and other sight seeing. As mentioned earlier we found it really convenient to have a moped and parked it close by, as nothing was more than about 30 min away. You are able to leave luggage after check out.

The staffs recommendations for dinners etc and general professionalism and friendliness were excellent. I highly recommend this hotel. For location it is great value for money.

1st week in July was great to go, as it is busy, but the season is not in full swing, which we were told started in a week or so.

We agree with all the good things said about the Hotel Keti by other reviewers. The position is pretty convenient for Fira (we quickly got used to the steps) and the views down to the harbour and across to the caldera are just stunning. Add Yiannis, the charming and helpful owner, and why would you even think of staying anywhere else?. Well, OK, there's no swimming pool.
The rooms are caves carved out of the rock. Picturesque and very clean and neat. Ours opened onto a large balcony, shared with 2 other rooms, with table and umbrella and THAT INCREDIBLE VIEW,
We just loved it.

After spending nearly a week at Hotel Keti, I would absolutely recommend the hotel to anyone and would stay at the hotel next time I visit Santorini. We were first attracted to the hotel by the price and location, but quickly found the views, cleanliness of the rooms and friendliness of the staff made the hotel exceptional. The hotel is central in Fira and relatively close to all of the beaches. The balconies have spectacular views and are perfect for watching the sunset or relaxing with a glass of wine, the rooms were surprisingly spacious and the staff was incredibly attentive. The staff at Hotel Keti was hands down the friendliest, most accommodating and enthusiastic I have ever encountered at a hotel. I would absolutely recommend Hotel Keti to anyone in search of a fantastic and relaxing hotel in Santorini.

We stayed at Hotel Keti for one night during a travel around the islands. It is right in Fira but down a steep flight of stairs and has a beautiful view of the Caldera. The rooms are clean and have everything you need including a kitchen. It is a good deal and definitely a quiet spot compared to most of Fira. We could still hear music into the night from the neighboring restaurants.
