I stayed at the Porto Carra Hotel - Fira (Santorini) for two nights at the end of July 2014. Here are a few observations of my stay:
1) Location is within the pedestrian zone in Fira and is a hassle to reach with luggage,
2) Amazing views from the room balconies,
3) Genuinely friendly owner/manager,
4) Room smelled due to heavy humidity and leakage (closet and adjacent wall),
5) No shower fixture installed but merely a shower head with drainage in the bathroom floor (could become very messy and quite slippery),
6) Towels were not replaced even though they were placed on the bathroom floor. They were merely placed on the balcony to dry up!
7) Free Wi-Fi is not reliable (cuts-up constantly).

This hotel has a magnificent location, it's in the heart de Fira, next to shops and restaurants. However, it is also a quiet place to rest, not noisy at all! The staff, Maya, Amin and Andreas, is excellent, they are very kind and helpful. The views of the Caldera are amazing (in our opinion the sunset from the terrace is even more astonishing than from Oia).

I stayed there with my friend Wendy for 3 nights and it was extremely amazing! I like our room No.4 with a fantastic view of in the balcony with the volcano and Aegean Sea. A glass of red wine made in Santorini with the sunset would be fabulous! The owner is a very nice lady and her brother is also kind. They provided nice breakfast for guests everyday but it was not written on booking, which surprised me a lot when I got free breakfast there!! It is said to be the oldest hotel in Fira. The present owner bought it last year and they renovated it all over. Now it looks pretty fabulous and every room has its own balcony towards the sea view. I would say it is the best place in Fira with best room and best people!!

Forget all that messing about going to Oia to stand with the hundreds of babbling tourists. Grab a drink and sit on their roof terrace and soak up one of the best views on the island. Maya and her husband are very friendly lovely people, so it is a win win situation.
