This hotel is exceptional. Beautifully decorated and located in a tranquil part of Fira (just a 5 minute walk from town on the main road), this hotel with tons of sunlight and picturesque views of the caldera and the sea is a steal. Irini, the hotelier who, along with her family, staffs the hotel, is exceptional--friendly, accommodating, and very knowledgeable about different tours and activities on the island, which she will happily book for you. She will also arrange a transfer for you from the ferry or airport, though you can save money by taking public bus, which will bring you to the main bus station a five-minute walk from the hotel (at the beginning of the heart of town).
While not super fancy, the hotel is impeccably clean and well-kept, with mural-painted walls and a very open and airy feel. We stayed in a cute, lofted room, where the bed and vanity were on a mezzanine level about the kitchenette and bathroom--roomy but the ceiling is low towards the sides of the loft. AC works well, but you can even open the windows at night for a refreshing island breeze.
They do not serve breakfast but rather have a "starter kit" of breakfast items in the fridge in each room, including butter, jam, some crackers and packaged chocolate croissants, water, and juice. There's a great supermarket two minutes down the road where you can buy food to supplement these items. Our room also had a stovetop, which we could have used to cook meals but didn't. (On a related note, we recommend the restaurant Salt and Pepper for delicious, affordable, and locally-inspired and -sourced cuisine--it's also on the main road, but on the other side of the main part of town, about 10 minutes away from the hotel.)
We would happily stay here again. Give it a try--you won't be disappointed!
