Overall, this is a very nice place, located on the caldera about a 5-10 minute walk to the edge of town (but this is an uphill/downhill/many steps walk, as is everything in Fira).
The service is terrific. Excellent management, always willing to help with any request. The location is marvelous, with amazing views of the caldera from the outside parts of the hotel. We had what I had thought was a two-bedroom suite but turned out to be a regular suite with two single beds in the living room. The room itself was quite nice, but because of the cave-style layout, had a major issue, namely that there was no air conditioning or air circulation in the bedroom part of the room. There were windows that connected the bedroom (in the far back of the "cave" to the living room (the front part of the "cave"), but no way to have some cooling AND privacy at the same time. I would not recommend this room, because it seems to me that no matter how you arrange it, you will never get cool air all the way to the back of the "cave." The front part of the room did cool nicely. I assume that the other rooms in the hotel, not being as deep as ours, would achieve better cooling.
One major point: the rooms do NOT have a view of the caldera. All of the rooms are "cave" style, which means they have a small door and one or two SMALL windows that face outside, and the rest of the room is sunken into the side of the cliff. If you are looking for rooms with a view (as I was), this is not the hotel for you.
Also, the hotel is a few minutes from the town shops and restaurants, which probably makes it quieter, but does necessitate a little walk back and forth.
