Sunrise Hotel
Ranked #43 of 81 Hotels in Fira
Reviewed 15 July 2013

The hotel is conveniently located close to the bus station and the Fira town center. However it's just in front of one of the two main roads, so that it's very noisy. We were very tired and were able to sleep some 7 hours per night, but people with problems to fall asleep will not find thisaccomodation ideal.
We arrived from Heraklion at 11:30 pm but nobody from the hotel came to pick us up. This is a service that almost every decent hotel in Santorini and nearby islands provide, and it was quite unconfortable to look for a taxi at that time of the night. The room was quite clean, but the shower head did not work properly. We mentioned this problem to the hotel staff and they said someone would have gone to fix it, but when we came back at night, nothing changed.

The breakfast is ok for one night stay, it consisted all the mornings of a glass of pineapple juice, a cup of coffee or tea, yogurt with honey, and bread with butter and jam. However, nothing was handmade, purely industrial products, honey included (a total nonsense in Greece!). We had reserved for 4 nights, and after the second we really didn't want to have again the same stuff.

Sunrise Hotel is a nice hotel drive by lovely people. It is located very well, close by the bus station and the main square in Fira. We stayed here for four nights before going to Ios. We had to come back to Santorini to catch our flight back home. Due to an early departure, we didn't book any rooms for the last night. The staff at Sunrise let us leave our luggage there for the day, and during the night we were allowed to stay in the reception area where we could get some sleep if we wanted. All this for free! The hotel itself is real good with a nice swimming pool area and air-condition in the rooms. We are going back!

Stayed here for three nights in late April and found it quite comfortable, very close to the bus station and around the corner from the main square. This made it easy to go backwards and forwards during the day as I needed some time out from the other tourists. Room had air-conditioning and en suite bathroom with continental breakfasts available each morning to. If you wanted to laze by the pool, they had one of those to.

Close to Fira town's bus station.
Initially, to my shock, we had a small dark room on the ground floor for a fist night(sort of garage style accommodation with very low and dark ceilings) , that was claustrophobic, but they swapped my room next morning upon my request, for a 2nd floor room.

Rooms, service and breakfast are basic. Bathroom, needs urgent attention, shower is unpractical- I hope you'll survive.

It has a swimming pool(you would not know it exist, unless your room has a view at). No customer service from owners, who run the place, at all.
The only thing I liked about this hotel was the terrace.

I would not recommend, it's just not worth the money you would pay for this ' basic budget hotel' with a high rate per night.

Room Tip: Don't take rooms on the ground/street level.They don't have light or sun, and are very dark.

Nice clean hotel. Very near to supermarket and and bus station. Good (continental) breakfast. The owners were nice and very helpful. Initially I had a small dark room with no window but with a patio door, which was claustrophobic but they swapped me rooms when requested. Unfortunately no air conditioning, but as I stayed there in September, it wasn't too much of an issue. You could order a cup of coffee or tea any time during the day (to be paid for). They had a bar where you could order drinks from in the evening.

Room Tip: Away from the busy road

Location was brilliant, just off the main square in Fira. They were so good in arranging our pick ups from and to the port and arranging the tour we took. Nice pool and spacious rooms.
Rooms are basic enough but clean, however the air conditioning is not included! That is extra, thankfully we survived without it. There were a few ants in our room that we sorted with some insect repellent. Breakfast was very basic....don't expect much but it's sufficient.

Room Tip: By the pool or if asking for triple rm ask for the duplex
