Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Very friendly staff. Sassa offers a personalized service and is very helpful, and so are all the staff.
Very charming place, rooms are very nice, breathtaking view and beautiful Jacuzzi with a view.
I definitely recommend Cori Riga. Well done Sassa and your team.

Room Tip: Suite with Jaccuzi is surely to try.

A wonderful quiet location to relax, if you have a room with an own terrace, with a wonderful view to the sea, and a whirl pool with warm water, you have the top. Lying in the pool, looking to the stars in the night, unforgettable.
A really good breakfast you can order in the evening before, you will get it served on the terrace, or in your room.
The sleeping room and the kitchen are not so big, but charming, the bathroom interesting, built directly into the cliffs. The main shopping road and supermarkets are nearby as well as the central bus-station (about 5-10 minutes to go, depending on you, walking up the steps), where you can buy tickets to all interesting places of the island.Timetables are available there. Do not miss the town Oia. From or to the airport or harbour a Taxi will pick up you, porters will take care of your luggage, if you book this service in advance. And at last a very friendly, helpful and competent management.

Room Tip: Try to get a petite jakuzzi suite with an own terrace and whirl pool

Under normal circumstances I would give this hotel an even lower score, but it gets major bonus points for charm. Situated in this popular town of Fira, the location was a great hub to be able to see all of Santorini. The hotel was built right into the cliffs of the Caldera overlooking the volcano across the sea which was amazing. However, there were quite a few steep/uneven steps to get to/from this hotel (not accessible by car). Porters from the hotel will help you carry your luggage up and down if you have your taxi driver call before you arrive.

The room we had was adorable but had it's share of creepy crawlies. I don't think any were concerning (mostly just the nature of being part of a mountainside building and the windows being left open by the cleaning staff), but I definitely spotted a few spiders and other small flying insects.

The beds were not very comfortable and my pillow was very flat and hard (though I think my friends may have lucked out better with their pillows/beds).

The staff at the hotel were very nice and helpful, but did not have as many details on certain things as I would have liked. Be sure to pick up a schedule of the buses from the bus station (about a 5 minute walk away) which will enable you to easily get to the sites on the island. Fira is the hub of all the buses which make getting to the beaches, Oia (the town at the tip of the island that you must visit to see the sunset) and the archeological site in Akrotiri. Buses range from 1.60 Euro to 2.20 Euro depending on where you are going. There is also a very easy bus (10-15 minutes) to the airport which will save on cab fare.

Great location - in the heart of the fascinating shopping/walking streets of Fira, this boutique property is great for a silently tucked away retreat.
Simple and clean suites, humble and friendly management and simply gorgeous views of the Caldera - makes this a great choice of a hotel to stay in.

We booked at short notice for 3 nights and liked it so much we booked for another 3 nights. The location was ideal for us being about 100 metres below the main Thira thorofare. The views were "Wow". We stayed in 3 different rooms and they each had the unique charm - all of them were spacious, clean and full of character, art (by the owner) and history They all had a patio erea where we had breakfaest served each morning and watched the cruise ships ferry their passengers in for the day. The team there were most obliging and helpful with their dining and tourism suggestions - as well as general conversation. This was originally a family residential property that has been coverted to a touism hotel/apartment complex - the conversion inludes art and historic artifacts that tie the place together and create a unique ambience. We asolutely recommend Cori Rigas to anyone visiting Santorini/Thira. Graham & Wendy, New Zealand

Room Tip: All rooms are different and unique. All are appealing.

The privacy and size of our suite at Cori Rigas made our holiday the perfect retreat. Not just a bed to rest your weary body after the days activities, rather the perfect hideaway to absorb the breathtaking view while enjoying some of the local produce.

Room Tip: Treat yourself to a jacuzzi suite, it really doesnt get any better than this, soaking in a hot tub...

Awesome views, the perfect spot for the sunsets! This hotel is just steps from town but far removed from all the cruise ship tourists. A peaceful oasis. We sat on the veranda for an entire afternoon the day we left as we were awaiting our ferry later that afternoon.
The staff and service is wonderful, ultra accommodating, and had many great tips for tours and places to eat that were authentic and delicious. The hotel cafe has a great breakfast that can be customized to your liking. Lots of fresh fruit!
The suite was HUGE. More beds than we actually needed. Very neat, clean and unique traditional house built into the cliffs. Was quite an experience.
We had our laundry done at the hotel, smelled so fresh and was folded so neatly!
Your bags get carried right to the taxi area too which was very important for older travelers like my mom.
Great location, easy to get to from the town, and the most awesome views!
