“Comfortable Hotel, Friendly Staff, Value for Money, Beautiful View”
Reviewed 24 April 2011

I stayed 2 nights recently in Thea Studios and found this hotel is great for the value of the money I paid. I choosed the Apartments, with 2 bedroms, TV, Air Con, bath room (including the massage style - shower), and a little kitchen with basic cooking utensils and refrigerator. You can cook if you here if you intend to stay longer and to save money. Although the hotel isn't located in the cliff facing the Volcano, it does offer a beautiful view of the blue Agean sea. The pool is small but it is nice to relax for sunbathing. If they make it bigger, it would be nicer.

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, they offer free pick up and drop off to the port, also to the city centre of Fira. It takes15 minutes walking distance from the hotel to the city centre of Fira, which is actually very close, however in the evening there is not much light on the street on the way back to the hotel. Although it is safe, but for a solo traveller like myself it's always better to be pre-cautious and take a good care of ourselves.

Overall, I found my stay in Thea Studios is very memorable and value for money for the price I paid.

We loved Thea studios. We booked last minute and it was no problem, they also upgraded us for free to a lovely room with a loft. The view from the pool looks down over the sea and it was stunning. The staff couldn't do enough to help us with driving us to town and doing our washing. Such amazing value for money. A real hidden gem!

The studios are situated about 10 minutes walk from the centre and the area itself is very very quiet. You can only hear the birds sing at night. The hotel offers a pick up and drop off service at the airport which was very good and the staff were helpful and polite. Towels are replaced once a day and toilet paper etc. Bed sheets are changed every three days or so.

All in all a good experience. A few negative points however. I didn't mind the walk to the centre and it is short and much closer than many hotels but there is a small hill and no lighting in some parts but generally the road back was always empty and a nice stroll. However, it wouldn't be suitable for the elderly. With a car, naturally, you would have no problems as there is plenty of parking.

The breakfast consists of tea or coffee and bread and jam as well as simple cake. Nothing special but the bread is nice and from a bakery and if you normally have a light breakfast then you won't have a problem.

While the rooms are advertised as studios they don't really offer much in the way of cooking utensils/equipment etc. If you wanted to save some money by cooking at home then you simply won't be able to do this here. Its a shame really that they advertise the rooms as studios because they are not really. We didn't even have cups to make tea and coffee in our room although when we asked for a cup we had no problem.

Another small problem was the lack of really hot water. It was there some days but not on others. I like really hot showers so this was not possible most days.

All in all, a nice pleasant experience. The pool is not really big enough to swim it but nice for a relaxing soak. It is bigger than a lot of pools in Santorini, however, which seem to be rather on the small side. Air conditioning worked fine and there is no extra charge.

They also have a nice dog called Blanky who is very friendly and will definetely help make your stay a more pleasant experience! Yeah!
