Nefeles Suites Hotel
Ranked #48 of 81 Hotels in Fira
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Nefeles, I love you, I mean really, I love you. We arrived late on a Tuesday night, they do not have 24 hour staffing and they were unaware that we had missed our connecting flight. We had a tough time navigating our way to the Nefeles after being dropped off by a cab (they do offer a shuttle, but again, they did not know we missed our connection). Once we got there we realized that there was not 24/7 staff and the lobby was locked. Luckily for us, there was a couple staying there as well that happened to be up when we got there at about 11PM. They informed us where we would be able to find our key and voila, it was where they said it would be!

That was our only snafu. We stayed in the Nike suite, it is the Petite Standard room. I tell you what, it is beautiful, it is certainly a small room, but they really know how to maximize the space. At no time did it feel cramped at all. I now know what cozy means, it means you mentally are aware that the square footage is not high, but the space is so wonderful that it just feels good to be in it, that's what that room did for me and my wife.

They offer breakfast every morning and have an absolutely breathtaking view, regardless of which room you are in. You wake up to beauty and go to sleep to the same every single day. The staff could not have been more kind, always asking what else they could do to improve your stay, which really meant a lot to us because we had the absolute worst experience with weather in Croatia and then travel to and from Santorini (but that was the fault of the travel agent booking flights with short layovers and convincing us that the airports would be small enough that we would easily make all of our flights). Knowing that these people wanted to make our honeymoon the best it could be, really won us over, it really felt like they cared a lot.

Nefeles is just a short walk from the fantastic Argo restaurant, and a slightly longer (yet still short) walk from the almost just as fantastic Archipelago restaurant. They are close to everything in Fira, really. Murphy's, 2 Brothers, Highlander, Koo Club, and several other nightlife spots. Once you figure your way around Fira, everything is close. I do suggest not using Spiridakos to rent anything (they have a pamphlet in the binder in the rooms at Nefeles) they are scam artists, and if you're looking for an ATV, they don't even rent them, but won't actually tell you that, they'll just push a car down your throat.

The rooftop pool is a fantastic place to watch the sunset with a spouse or significant other, the water is warm, the jets are airy, and the view is out of this world. The pool next to the lobby is also just as wonderful, and if you need anything while there, the staff is ready to help you out.

There is no doubt, that when I go to Fira again, I will be looking into staying at the Nefeles again. Everything about them was perfect, and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for helping make my honeymoon everything we hoped it would be (after it had been a nightmare!).

Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Beautiful rooms, cleaned twice daily, with amazing views. Staff were brilliant, couldn't do enough for you. The rooftop pool is a perfect place to relax. Breakfast was lovely, great selection.

From the moment we arrived at the nefeles suites the service we received was amazing. We received a complimentary room upgrade on arrival which was amazing as we ended up staying in the executive suite with some amazing views over the caldera. Nothing was too much trouble and stefanos and his team ensured our whole trip in fira was amazing. Breakfast is high quality and the outdoor pool with its prime location for sunset views was breathtaking. Highly recommend

We really enjoyed our stay at Nefeles Luxury Suites, the staff are professional, friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in Nike which was just perfect for us and it had a balcony with a wonderful view. We would definitely recommend when staying in Santorini.

After another property in Fira cancelled our reservation just days before arrival, we scrambled to find a two-bedroom suite and were thrilled to find Nefeles! Located in the heart of Fira, it offers an Oasis from the crowds and noise (Fira gets very busy with cruise ship passengers). With only 7 rooms spread on three or four levels, it feels very intimate.

We selected the Grand Executive Suite which had a double bed on the first floor and a double bed and a single on the second floor. The second floor beds are a bit more like futons, low to the floor but adequate. Upstairs does have a low ceiling but that is fine considering true two-bedrooms are difficult to find in Fira. There was one large, well appointed bathroom on the first floor with a jacuzzi tub.

But most impressive is the unobstructed view of the Caldera, the best location for sunset! We went one night to Oia for sunset but all agreed the a sunset on our private balcony at Nefeles was a far better experience! Also the view from the top floor pool/sun deck was equally as fantastic and never busy.

Lastly, Stefanos and Ektoras, as well as the entire staff, were welcoming, helpful and extremely professional. We were given fantastic restaurant recommendations to avoid the many tourist traps in Fira. I truly hope to return to Santorini soon!

Great choice and good value, if you`d like to stay at the Caldera where most hotels are extremly expensive. Perfect located in the heart of Fira town, yet quiet. Friendly staff, beautiful view over the sea. Small pool on the rooftop.

Our stay at Nefeles was absolutely wonderful. The room we stayed in was big and spacious with a personal balcony Which overlooked the magnificent view of Santorini. Every morning a rich and versatile breakfast buffet is served, which makes your day already begin with a smile. On the roof of the hotel there is a Jacuzzi and tanning beds. Each time we sat up there a tasty surprise came from the hotel manager Hector. The location of the hotel is perfect, right in the center of Fira near all of the best stores and restaurants. Our stay in Santorini wouldn’t be as such without the kind and devoted staff of the hotel. If going to Santorini Nefeles is defiantly the place to stay.
