It's not in the townsquare of fira, but quite easy to the town. About 10 minute walk. Great if you are into walking. Carrefour is nearby. Rooms are clean. AC is wonderful. My room faced the pool which was lovely. You can't swim past 10 however. It has a great place for breakfast. Staff (morning staff) are very friendly. The hotel is manned 24/7. There was some initial snag with internet but it's more iPhone and Mac related and it fixed itself for some reason. I find the in room fridge very helpful on a hot summer day. I also enjoyed the running path outside of the hotel. It's not the cheap but it's very easy to get around. Rented a car one day and it was easy because the staff arranged for drop off and pick up. The airport pick up was also nice. You should pre-arrange it with the hotel. I very much enjoyed the stay.

santoriny is very famous for sunset. people go to Oia just to witness the beautiful sunset.Astir thira hotel is located on such a place of Santorini island that one can enjoy the first ray of sun from the back side of the hotel and sunset can be enjoyed from front of the hotel .the internal ambiance of the hotel is also very tastefully designed. We enjoyed our stay over there a lot. Hotel staff was very helpful in every manner. this is the best located boutique hotel having walking distance from main market and city bus stand. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: rooms on left side are best as having views of both sunset and sunrise.

This hotel is situated in an ideal location to visit Santorini, especially Fira. The hotel staff is VERY helpful and helped us in understanding bus schedule and booking tours. We were granted an upgrade free of charge when we arrived and the extra space was wonderful. Pool a welcome treat after a hot day. Breakfast was plentiful. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Our room was on the ground floor close to the pool so that you heard alot of water running through t...

We had two weeks on Santorini and this was an excellent base to explore the island. Spotlessly clean, very helpful and friendly staff, nice rooms and the breakfasts were lovely. (Try the home made Yoghurt and Jam)

The pool, like the rest of the hotel, was sparkling clean and if you wanted any help with places to go or eat the staff were happy to help with good suggestions and bookings.

It is only a few minutes walk from the town centre and the main bus stop for the island but just far enough out to be a nice quiet spot. We really enjoyed our fortnight there.

Room Tip: If you pay a bit extra you get a view of the volcano rather than the pool.

The room was really clean and spatious. Thats the first thing we noticed after 10 days on a boat.
But it was really nice!
Lovely staff, traditional room with the rounded ceiling, we had a balcony with a nice view.
We also had a lovely time at the pool, wich was really clean and it was also sheltered from the street behind a wall for our comfort.
Great Wifi, even by the pool.
The breakfast selection was quite good and the coffe not too shabby.
Overall it was a great experience.

Close to town and grocery store. Very hospitable and friendly staff; family run hotel.breakfast has good selection. The only downside is the shower in the bathroom, position in a way that water gets out on the side of the tub. Otherwise, I recommend this hotel to anybody that has plans to visit Santorini.

Room Tip: Rooms on the courtyard inferno of the pool.
