“Best Budget Hotel in Greece”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

This is by far the best budget hotel I can recall in my travel experiences. Most of it can be attributed to the careful attention Lefteris pays to his guests. He is extremely helpful and does goes out of his way to ensure you have a pleasant stay. Thank you for that.

Please not this is not a 5* hotel. However, offers a lot for the price it asks for. Although basic, the rooms were spacious and clean. Some rooms are apartments and has a kitchen, fridge and a balcony. I think some others are just rooms. Either way you can be assured the rooms will be really good for the price you paid for. Our bathroom was not that big, but just right. Breakfast is not included, shower, there are plenty of bakeries and restaurants near by. Lefteris and team are always available to make a cup of copy on demand (on the house). We even got a jug of wine to test out.

From a location perspective, this place can't get any better. Fira is the hub to get anywhere on the island. You don't need a car if you stay at this place as it is a hop away from the bus station. Please note that there is no Caldera view from this hotel. This is a budget hotel, if you want to pay 4-5 times more for the view, I suggest you pick another hotel. However, you can walk to the Fira Caldera area in about 3-4 minutes where you can find restaurants, shops, donkey rides, cable car etc. You will also get picked up from port/airport and dropped off, which is a huge bonus.

I stayed in 6 different hotels during my trip to Greece and Italy. This one was by far the best value for money.

Lefteris, I know you don't go on the net. But if you get this message, keep doing what you do... that is customer service at its best.

Room Tip: Given the demand for this place you might not get the exact room you wanted. But most apartments ar...

This was just perfect for us. The owners of the Hotel are incredibly nice! And the welcome you with the warmest smile :) The rooms were clean and just right for 2 persons. We had a balcony too which was a treat! The Hotel is full of young backpackers so we made a lot of friends. The location too is very convenient. For the price, in Fira, I don't think one can get much better than this :)

Room Tip: Coordinate in advance for a good room. Also, ask for one with a balcony! :)

We had such a lovely stay at Antonia's in Santorini. The family run business is really friendly and hospitable, we felt very at home during our stay.

The daughter even offering us tea and coffee in the dining room. We were well looked after and regularly checked if we needed anything. The rooms are very clean and kept clean daily with fresh towels.

Highly recommended for a comfortable lovely stay in Santorini.

My wife and I wanted reasonably priced accommodation in Fira for a two-week break, so that we could drive around during the day but relax in the evening with lots of restaurant choices within a short stroll. The Antonia Apartments certainly seemed to fit the bill and what we read on Trip Advisor about Lefteris was encouraging.
The reality is quite amazing, as Lefteris is larger than life and one of the most well-known and well respected people on the island of Santorini. Everywhere we went the locals would sing his praises. The apartment we had was clean, comfortable, well appointed and it is true about the free coffee and wine and we several times saw evidence of Lefteris' willingness to go far beyond the level of care that we have come to expect on our travels over the years.
His recommendations for destinations were always given with good consideration for what we were looking for, whether a quiet or noisy beach, or cheap and cheerful or more upmarket food. There must be more than 50 resturants and bars within 10 minutes walk from the apartments.
Our only problem now is whether we can ever find anywhere to stay in future that is anything like as good!

Room Tip: We had Room 21, which may be the best (at the top at the back with a balcony) but probably because w...

My Fiancé and I stayed here from 14 - 26 June. Free pick up from the airport was followed by the warmest welcome imaginable from Lefteris upon arrival. It was evident that nothing was too much trouble. Free wine upon arrival which was replenished daily or more often if required. We had room 18 on the top floor with a partial view of the ocean and overlooking the pool. A clean and comfortable room with modern furnishings and super comfy beds. Lefteris' hospitality cannot be rivalled, he is a genuinely lovely man with a lovely family and friendly staff working for him. He provided recommendations for 3 restaurants - they were all great places to eat (will also be reviewed on TA). We saw a lot of guests come and go of all age groups so for that reason I would say the accommodation is suitable for all. We chose a room with cooking facilities but never used them, the fridge comes in handy for keeping the wine chilled. There is air con available in the rooms, a safe, free wifi and beach towels are provided by the pool. The pool area is a real sun trap and only houses 4 sunbeds but Kamari beach is only a 15 minute bus journey away (bus stop is 5 minutes walk and bus runs every 15 mins). Security on site do a fantastic job so you can feel safe and secure and assured that any noise issues will be dealt with swiftly. We booked through booking.com and paid 660 euros for 11 nights which is an absolute bargain for such centrally located accommodation. You can also contact Lefteris directly to arrange a booking via the Antonia Apartments website and may get a cheaper deal. We received free transport back to the airport today and were genuine saddened to leave such a beautiful place with such a lovely host. Would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends. Can't wait to return :)
