This place was really pleasant, we were looking for a place with a great view for the sunset, a comfortable location and friendly staff. We got it all in one at Porto. The place and the food was great, we had a really nice time chatting with the staff and we eventually met the owner, who was also really nice. She gave us 4 coasters as a small souvenir that we are using and reminds me of our experience every time. We really enjoyed our experience, we found that the price was better the rest at Fira and the food was also very decently priced compared to some who were really expensive. Would we stay here again, in a heart beat.

Room Tip: any room is a good room, they have amazing views.

The location and view were outstanding; we rented a petit suite cave room for 5 nights which was small but ok for 2 people. The balcony and outdoor area and view was fantastic could not have been better. Very firm large bed on rock pedestal very comfortable. A great breakfast brought to your room/patio each morning. Amazing hotel employee who carried our 2 suiltcases down all the stairs to our room and bck up to the street when we departed (please tip him well for the hard work) We had an early morning flight out and the hotel arrange for a very early breakfast and porter service for our suitcases. My only complaint was no coffee maker in the room, there is a hot pot though for boiling water so we bought coffee, milk, and snacks at the nearby Carrefour Supermarket a short walk away. BTW Nauossa Restaurant at the top of the stairs/ top of the hill is very good.

First of all, Santorini is stunningly beautiful. Pictures can never do justice to the view of the sea and the sunsets! Porto Fira Suites was a delightful traditional cliff side hotel, which allowed you privacy, clean, well maintained hotel experience with a amazing view at all times of the day.
They deliver breakfast every morning to your terrace and that is your wake up call. We forgot to order on the second day, and they just repeated the order from the previous day! Great start to your day with fresh fruit, yogurt and traditional staples like eggs and breads and cereal.
The location is exactly what you would want when in Santorini, on the cliffs, with narrow cobblestone walkways and whitewashed walls. A different door to the sea at ever turn on the pedestrian only streets. Well pedestrians and donkeys only streets!
Beware, there are a lot of stairs but do not let that stop you. It is amazing to discover the city walking around, and after eating on this island, who couldn't use a little workout to make up for your over indulgence of food while here.
We stayed for 5 nights and loved ever one of them.
The rooms were cleaned every day, and your terrace was washed down ever day.
We stayed in room #21, which had a sitting area inside and a large jacuzzi tub with shower. Lots of hot water!!!
Small pull out couch and a LCD television.
The porter was a champ, he brought our luggage down from top of cliff to our room and that is no easy feat. Make sure to tip this man! You do not want to do that job at all!
The pool is a nice area, however being we were here in mid October the water was not warm enough to swim in.
Explore this island at your own pace, do yourself a favor and get a scooter and see what the island has to offer! They are affordable at €20 per day with insurance and is the best way to take your time and enjoy the island.
Porto Fira Suites is a short walk of 5-15 minutes to many local restaurants in Fira town and there are a few bars that are open later for music and drinks!
Now, the only negative we have for this hotel, and specifically room 21.... The bed was horrible. It was as hard as the rock walls that surrounded it. We had long days of exploring the island and on our feet walking hills and cliffs and came back to bruise our hips from sleeping on our sides. Love the hotel, love the staff, love the island, would have loved a comfortable bed. Great stay, if there was a pillow top mattress, we would have rated 5stars!!!! Fantastic honeymoon in a amazing place.

Just back from 5 nights with my two teenage daughters 13 and 16. Yes Beautiful, amazing position on the cliff. Views do not get any better. Yes lots of steps but with the amount o eating and drinking to be enjoyed, treat it as fitness for the day! Hotel staff nice enough- didn't see them much. On reflection didn't get the room we booked - we booked a suite with queen bed and two sofa Beds. Instead we got room #24 (one queen and one sofa bed) except for fact my husband couldn't come in the end, we would have been way too crowded In the room they gave us. With that one sofa out fully, we almost couldn't inch around it. And must say the mattress on the sofa bed was dreadful - my daughters head was lower than her legs!! Very annoyed no coffee/tea/milk but a kettle!! Get that at the supermarket before you arrive! Room was very quiet, queen bed was comfortable and hot water no problem at all. Breakfast was nice but a bit boring after a few days. Biggest issue was the shuttle back down to ferry port on departure. whilst only 20 euros for 3 of us in a lovely large modern mini bus, the hotel mixed up my departure shuttle booking (ie lost my original booking, so we made a new one which would leave the hotel half hour later than original) then they obviously lost that second booking and found original booking and so because we weren't there, the driver lost his sense of humour and wasn't interested in hearing my views! A joke. Bit of a sour taste. Having said that, we are returning to santorini next year with extended family (4 families) - but there are so many other lovely places to stay - some not so far down the cliff, but look simply just as stunning. Santorini is definitely a bucket list item you must do!

We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. A nice breakfast was delivered every AM, although it would have good to have a little instant coffee set-up in the room since there was an electric kettle. The view from our patio was outstanding. Also enjoyed a dip in their pool. A slight drawback was the limited hot water for the shower. We never had a consistently hot shower in the 5 nights we were there. The staff was very friendly, and helpful! And the porter was amazing that he could carry our large suitcase up and down those steep Fira walkways, while always smiling. Tip him well!

Room Tip: We had room #20, which had a more private balcony than the room next to us.

It is Beautiful place and you want to experience the typical beautiful cave hotel in Santorini then this is it. but there is no one can help you carry a luggage from the top of the hill to the Hotel and it is really long stair. Nothing you can do because this hotel is at right edge of the cliff that is why view is good.
Break fast is amazing. and to be honest after spending 5 days in Santorini. Best thing is the view in Santorini. if you stay in this hotel you've done most of thing you need to do in Santorini. so Important not to stay less hotel but hotel like this worth it.

Room Tip: Stayed in Mini Suites, it looks small in the Picture, but it is not. just average size for normal ho...

Arrived at 12:30.am., and were greeted with a very nice gentleman, soooo sorry I don't have your name, but im sure he is the only one who literally throws your 48lb luggage over his shoulder and walks you to your room, amazing!! You will appreciate this more than you know,as Santoini is all about walking up and down pretty steep stairs. Inquire ahead about pickups. We stayed in rm#21,right on the cliffs of Fira. Excellent spot. Room was very clean, our patio was spacious, and is where our breakfast was delivered each morning. They have traditional and other options to choose from, all is good and the presentation is amazing. We ordered room service one evening , pasta and salads were large and yummy. The beautiful ladies at the front desk are very helpful,so ask them all you need to know about thing to do. Adonnis at the patio bar was spectacular, he made us remember to just relax and take it all in. We were there Sept 4-8th,a few cruise ships making town busy,so we really loved sitting at the hotel bar and chatting with him, a gracious host. Housekeeping was thorough and prompt, thanks ladies. The pool area was small, but perfect for the size of the hotel , nice little private cave to sit and chill in. We were all over town and it seemed like we really hit the jackpot. The reviews here really helped though. It seemed like a team effort at this hotel and we'd definitely go back. Thanks to everyone. We were greeted each morning and evening with smiles and really appreciated that. In turn,we did tip, and all were very appreciative as well.

Room Tip: Suite #21 has perfect views and very peaceful.
