First up, a warning: George, the owner, used to be a professional racing driver, and so the trip down to the port to catch your ferry will a white knuckle ride. But it is a complimentary trip - you'll be picked up and dropped off as part of your stay. And it's a good spot to stay. It's not on the caldera side of Fira, but it's a two minute walk from the centre of Fira, and its restaurants, shops, and arresting views. The hotel has its own views across the east of the island, which are breathtaking at sunrise if you can rouse yourself at dawn. George and his team look after you well; breakfast is simple, and WiFi is haphazard, but the welcome is warm, and tourist information always at hand. Small swimming pool, large rooms with private balconies (the upstairs suites are particularly spacious), and an easy location to get in and out of (hiring a car is highly recommended to get around the island). Avoid Lithos, no matter how much it's punted by the hotel - worst restaurant I've been to in Greece - but otherwise very happy tourists with no complaints.
