LOVED this place. The rooms were so nice and clean. We had a shared patio in which they brought us breakfast every morning. We got to eat outside and look at the sea. Great views of the sunset. The pool area was very clean. The only draw back is walking down the windy roads with our luggage, however, we did not know that they would have carried them for us. (we took advantage of that as we checked out) The staff was all friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. If I ever go back to Santorini I would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: I am pretty sure all of the rooms have a view of the sea. We slept with the doors wide open each ni...

I made the reservation at the last minute through Expedia. I was locked in with no escape (50% of the stay) immediately. The first night was four times the rate of night 2 and night 3. As they described, it was the last room on night one. It is the airline model for hotels. At the normal rate the hotel was fine. At the predatory rate it was not worth the money. Go somewhere else - like Imerovigli. Where you can get get a hotel commensurate with the price. Other than price, the hotel was fine. Very comparable to other hotels. No bar for happy hour at sunset. Breakfast was just OK - lots of bread products. Bottem line: shop around. This place is not worth the price.

Very nice and helpful staff. No problem there. Pricing and owner policies are the problem.

Room Tip: They all have sea views. Our neighbors were slightly above us. At breakfast it is like someone is wa...

Dear Guest!
Concerning the pricing and cancellation policy, you understand that making last minute reservation during high season, you must expect some kind of restriction. Moreover, the price and cancellation policy was clearly stated in Expedia at the moment you had made a reservation.
Hope you and your companion had nice time in Athina Suites!
Best Regards,

We were lucky to choose this hotel from the Internet. It is located on the cliff and has fantastic view to Caldera and Volcano. Room N7 (cute and very clean) was just above the pool and our breakfast was served on our balcony wherever we wanted. Helpful, friendly personnel, always happy to assist. There are around 100 steps to get to the hotel from town, so don’t take too many suitcases with you.

And absolutely delightful property on the cliffs of Fira. Yes the steps are hardwork, but what do you expect to have such a great view. The help in getting luggage up and down the cliff was very much appreciated and all the staff were very helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Only downsides, and they are minor, is that there is no wifi in the rooms and having such a low bed, made it difficult for an older person to get in and out of bed

Room Tip: Ask for suite 1

We chose Athina based on its location in Fira and its caldera view. When we arrived, Angelo the bellman met us at the top of the hill and helped carry our bags down the stairs to the property. It’s pretty far down the hill so that was really appreciated (one of our pictures actually has a red square drawn around the location of the hotel on the hill). We bumped into Angelo a couple other times during our stay and he was always friendly and helpful (note to staff: keep this guy!). The hotel has wonderful unobstructed views from the caldera view rooms. Our room (#7, I believe) was quite small however, with just a little room to walk around the double bed and only about 5-6 feet between the foot of the bed and the patio doors that were the room’s entrance; the bathroom was also small with a tight stand-up shower and toilet and the sink was outside the bathroom in the sleeping room itself. A suite would probably had been preferable. The door to the bathroom also did not shut all the way…the lower section of it hit the door jamb and would not allow it to be fully closed so we had to prop something in front of it when we needed privacy. Additionally, there was an uncovered window above the doors that let a lot of light into the room in the early morning. Wi-fi is available around the office area upstairs only…not in the individual rooms. That all said, the view and the excellent breakfast (just watch for curious cats because it’s not covered up) served right on your private patio outside the room nearly make up for the slight shortcomings. If the Athina invested a little TLC in some cosmetic updates, we’d more highly recommend it. On a scale of 1-10, we’d probably put it between a 6 and 7 based on our visit. We both agreed that we thought the Atlantis Hotel at the top of the hill above the Athina looked a bit nicer and had nearly as good (though not quite as unobstructed) views, and wouldn’t require you to go up and down the hill. If we returned to Santorini and wanted to stay in Fira again, we’d probably try that one.

Room Tip: Double rooms are quite tiny. If you want some space, go with a suite.

We had the most amazing holiday at this hotel. The location couldn't be more perfect! It is close enough to the best restaurants and bars, yet very quiet. Breakfast served on the balcony facing the sea was a real treat. The rooms are cute and comfortable. I know some people written bad reviews for the size of the room, but unless you are going there with a LOT of luggage, it shouldn't be a problem. We had one large suitcase and managed just fine. The staff was so lovely! Angelo in particular. The swimming pool was fantastic. It is quite a few steps down the cliff, but that wasn't a problem for us. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: all rooms are sea view

We found Athina Cliff Side Suites on the internet. What a great find! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and have no complaints. The staff were very welcoming and it was so lovely to be welcomed with a glass of cold vinsanto - especially after all the stairs which you have to go down to get there! The breakfasts were lovely and served on our balcony - such a lovely view of a beautiful place.

The rooms were clean and tidy and the bed was very comfortable. We had such a pleasant stay, I didn't want to leave. The sunsets from the pool area are spectaular - you can take some beautiful photos if you are lucky enough to have a break between cruise ships.
