“Excellent hotel -15 minute walk from Fira”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

At first we were a little worried about the distance from the hotel to center of Fira but the Majestic turned out to be a perfect place for our family of 7. We enjoyed our time by the pool and relaxed for some points during the day, and were able to walk or take a cab into town whenever we wanted to. The rooms were perfectly suited to our needs and we had lovely views across the main road into the sunset. The pool bar served great food and the staff at the concierge was incredibly helpful - assisting us in setting up two days of excursions around the island. The windows and doors are sound proof so you do not hear any cars driving by, and the view while you get ready for dinner is truly remarkable. The car to town is about 5 euros if you have any people in your party who will need a ride, but if not the walk is very easy. After spending time in Fira and seeing how crowded it can get - it was nice to get outside of the town and be able to relax. Breakfast buffet was perfect but ended at around 10:30 each morning, a very good way to get you out and about on Santorini. We noticed several guests spent their days lounging by the pool which shows that the hotel is truly a place of comfort. Beds were comfortable, Air conditioning was very good and the bathrooms were fine. There was a slight issue with the water from the shower running out into the floor, but they do have a drain in the floor to counter that situation.

Room Tip: Choose sunset facing if you would like sunset views at night - but it is on the road side of the hot...

Firstly, I couldn't believe tripadvisor had the Majestic Hotel ranked so lowly as my time here was lovely. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the centre of Fira, which is not ideal but the walk is lovely (and helped burn off all the gyro I ate..). Rooms were rather spacious, views were amazing (particularly sunrise and sunset), food was lovely and staff were friendly. Front desk were extremely helpful and transport was easily organised (special thankyou to Christiana who was particularly amazing). I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Majestic Hotel for 3 nights in late May. The room (#106) was comfortable and quiet with nice bath products, robes and fully stocked minbar. The breakfast buffet was excellent even included champagne to make cocktails. It was just a 10 minute walk to the main town of Fira and the beautiful Caldera views. The service at this hotel was very good. Nice staff, happy to help and answer questions. I had a very early flight upon leaving for Athens and needed to leave at 4:45a. The staff prepared a breakfast that was waiting for me in the lobby area (coffee, juice, muffins). So thoughtful! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road.

Santorini itself already amazing , the most amazing island for me
The hotel provide free return pick up from airport or ferry terminal ( at first this is the reason I choose the hotel )
After arriving there I am very happy that I choose this hotel , despite we had to walk around 10 min to town centre
Hotel : the room is pretty nice , feels like home , the hotel structure is pretty big
with USD 100 a night is really a catch to stay in this nice hotel

We stayed 4 nights at the Majestic Hotel, Santorini in June 2014. Below sums up our experience:

1. Location
Fira town is a 7 or 10 minute walk away from the hotel, depending on your walking speed. As such, it's away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town and bus terminal (where you can catch the local buses to other main tourist spots, such as Oia and Perrisa etc, in Santorini). Yet, it's convenient if you need to go to town for dinner or grab something from Carrefour.

2. Service
Service tendered by every staff at the hotel has been nothing short of impeccable. Special mention to Lambros, the fun loving bartender, who never fails to liven up the mood with his amazing cocktail mixes or magic tricks. George, the head waiter, also impresses us tremendously when I told him that the lobster risotto I had ordered was not fully cooked. He immediately took it back and saw to it personally that my next dish was done properly by the chef. When we experience great service, we give credit. Thank you, Lambros and George (and of course, all the other staff at Majestic who had made our stay such an enjoyable one).

Breakfast and room amenities
Breakfast is sumptuous and the clean rooms come with sea or volcano views. We were pleasantly surprised at the Korres toiletries the hotel provides.

Overall, it's been a great experience at the Majestic. Keep up the good work.

We spent four nights at this Mediteranean hotel, walking distance from downtown Fira. Great atitude from all employees, from front desk to the bar pool - Special remark to the bar tender, Mr. Lambros Karakasis, who turned a windy night into a very enjoyable and tasty drink occasion. Food was also superbe, well prepared. Either to get a great time under the sun or to enjoy a peaceful environment in that great city we recommend the Majestic Hotel at Fira.

Room Tip: We prefered the ones closer to the reception and by the pool.

We loved this hotel. We stayed 3 nights in May. We loved the room overlooking the caldera. We were on the first floor and had a nice balcony. Somewhat windy and at times chilly but we loved the entire experience. Walked to Fira. It was a little rough as my wife has some mobility issues so we took a cab back. Breakfasts were great with a nice assortment of Greek foods. Staff were all great. One evening we ate in the hotel restaurant. We had the entire place to ourselves. The food was good. We rented a car one day to see the entire island. Drove to Oia, Fira, Akitori, red beach and other spots. Very nice. Renting a car was so easy and the desk staff very helpful. Spent a lot of time in Fira during our stay. The hotel is a modern looking place and spotless. We would definitely return a nd recommend to any one. We did see a beautiful sunset from our balcony. This is a 5 star hotel and it has earned t hat distinction.

Room Tip: Ask for a Caldera view. Yes there is a road between the hotel and the view.
