Located just outside of the very happening town centre area of Fira, this was a nicely located quiet hotel, however i'm very glad i wasn't paying its full price rates.
The room was as expected for the Greek Islands, rather simple, hard bed and poor shower, which is why i was surprised at the reported full price rates - luckily i got a good deal on booking dot com.
The shower was completely hand held, as the wall bracket holding the shower head was broken.
On a positive note, i arrived late evening and although i found no water options in the room (bottled water, even at a price), the town centre being very close offered late night options for food and general supplies.
Unfortunately i was there only the one night, so i wasnt able to experience the pool or other services. However the view in the morning from my room was simply stunning, "overlooking" the bay where the ferry's are.
The free ride to the ferry was very helpful and friendly, make sure you make the most of this, as the taxi drivers on the island can rip you off if you're not switched on
