“Inexpensive But a Bit Far From Town”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2011

Overall: We would not stay here again. We rather stay closer to town with a front office that is staffed 24/7.

Location: The hotel is a 5 to 10 minute walk into town on a very busy road with no sidewalk. My husband and I are young and health but still didn't feel very safe sharing the road with the cars on a way to and from town. Most cars and ATVs on the island are driven by tourists with questionable driving abilities. Next time I would stay closer to town.

Price: We paid about 40 Euro a night for a room with a loft which is very cheap for the amount of room we got.

Room: The loft rooms are pretty big and over look the sea side of the island. The bed and the bedding are old but clean. The pillows are really flat and should be replaced. The hotel, including the bathroom and furniture seemed almost new but the bed looked like it was from the 70s.

Bathroom: The maid never restocked our shampoo during our entire stay!!! We had to ask the front desk every morning. The first night we realized we had no shampoo, the front office was closed already so we had to wait until next morning! It's very annoying after a long day out, you just want to wash your hair but there is no shampoo!

Management: We were picked up and dropped off at the airport so no problem there. However the front office is only staffed during the morning so if you need something in the afternoon or at night, you are out of luck and have to call the number on the door. All the other hotels we stayed at in Greece had people at the front desk for most of the day so this place is the exception, not the norm.

Room Tip: Wear light color clothes in Greece, the sun is hot

Stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. Paid 50 Euros for 3 nights for a single room (including transfers to and from airport). Extremely cheap for a hotel in Santorini. I even have a balcony that looks out to the sea in the distance (not the volcano side though)

The hotel is however not right in the middle of Fira town. It is about 15 minutes walk along the road. Do lookout because the cars do drive very near the edge. Not the hotel's fault anyway.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with stay and will return next year again!

Stavros, the proprietor of this establishment hands down has to be the most inviting person I've met; next to my grandmother of course.
This place has all the charm and quaintness of a: sleepy, non-pretentious, Bed and Breakfast in wine country somewhere.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself, talking and drinking the best wine I've ever tasted with Stavros. (He makes the wine)
Anemomlios is a 5 min walk to and from Fira. The bus station, taxi stand, shopping as well as museum is within that area aswell. Even the most easily fatigued can make the short trip.
The room is rustic and easy going. Soft beds with clean sheets always await you...and the mattress is very comfy. There is a small balcony off the side of the room which can be a bit noisy late at nite and early in the morning. But by far makes up for it; by letting in all the eastern sun and showing distant views of the Agean.
The batroom is big enough, with tiled marble on the walls and a pedestal style sink. The bathtub ( yes I said "bathtub") is very roomy. Whether you'd want to use it is up to your discretion. The only draw back is the fact that there is no actual shower head. There is instead: a standard hand held sprayer. Nothing that would be a bother to most who can figure out what to do with string, a glass of Stavros' wine, and a good imagination!
There is always information about "things to do" at the front desk. They can arrange excursions awell.
This place is definetly a steal! As you can save on taxi or bus fare from the port by asking the owners to pick you up. They are warm and very friendly, and would be more than willing.
This is a REAL place to stay, where you can tell the owners are keen on pleasing their clients. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to enjoy a nice, inexpensive place to stay in Fira.
**** Did I mention "he makes wine" ****

The location was perfect..And I think that it worthes the money..The swimming pool was very small but we didn't stay at the hotel many hours. Mr Stayros was very friendly and helpful and the room service was perfect..

Are you looking for THE BEST accommodation in Fira, Santorini? Then Anemomilos is the place!!
We got into the port by ferry and there we met a very kind and friendly man that took us to his B&B suites. They were just perfect: Tv/ DVD, clean bathroom inside, comfortable beds, wifi for free, beatiful balcony,...
Not enough?... Incredible pool looking to the sea, terrace, free transport from and to the port, lot of information of what to do and see in Santorini (Stavros, the owner, is also a tour guide for his guests!), great disposition for any problem or question that we had, minutes walking to the centre, close mini markets and moto/bike rent...

Whatever you want you will find it here...
Incredible Stavros, Anemomilos and Santorini!!!

This hotel was fantastic. Stavros the King of the Greeks was a sensational host. He let us try his wine, organised our quad bikes and gave us information on every facet of our trip! He welcomed us into his hotel like we were guests in his home. The location is perfect, view of the sunrise and a few minutes walk to the centre of Fira. Rooms have a lovely balcony.

We will definately be returning. It was more than a hotel, Stavros made this an unforgettable Greek experience.

Me and my girlfriend stayed there for 9 days and it was a great plesure.
The room is comfortable, has a view to the sea and you have all you need exept food warming devices.
I must tell somthing about the staff. On the second day, there was a football game wich i only could see on the net and i tried to find out where i can find an internet point that is not that expensive like the places I saw earlier. so i asked the son of the hotel manager who works on the reception for help. Without giving it much thought, he immediately offered me his personal laptop for the night. I was really surprised, and told him that i will pay him but he refused and gave it to me. You can understand from this little story somthing about the homely service in this hotel.
They also drove us to the hotel late at night from the port and when we needed to take of they drove us specialy to the airport at 5:40 am! and all free of charge.
I really recommand this hotel, and the island is so amazing.. Thank you for reading :]
