It was hard not to giggle uncontrollably when you first arrive (after an arduous climb down -- surpassed only by the trip UP -- with a full load of luggage) and see the view of the caldera. No picture or written description can do it justice -- just see for yourself. It's AWESOME, in the true, original sense of the word.
The hotel itself is very good. Prices are quite affordable, esp. in the off season, and we got the Cavehouse Suite for a steal (on the hotel website). It was cozy for a suite -- I suspect the less deluxe rooms might even be smallish for some. The furnishings were fine. Housekeeping was efficient. The front desk person was genial, with excellent English. Much like our Athens leg of the trip, however, we did have to wrestle with mosquitoes, esp. at night. Be prepared to swat aggressively and keep the windows shut in the evening (or wear some repellent).
We got the transportation to and from the airport, which consisted of a mass shuttle for multiple Fira hotels on the way to the hotel, and the front desk hailing a cab (which we had to pay) on the way back. That being said, the shuttle was worth it.
Fira can get loud, even in the off season (we could hear nightclub music from the patio at night), but the Keti has a gem of a location, with terrific views and a relatively quiet setting, amply justifying the steep slopes one must traverse to and from the the hotel. Definitely recommended.
