My daughter was here and we were three doors down because couldnt get in here. Best of all would be to book the entire hotel with four couples. The rooms are hyper creatively designed and very tasteful. Great, friendly staff who arranged everything from boat cruises to restaurant transportation, which is a must have.

Although it is a small hotel (only 4 apartments, each of them different and unique), Ikastikies is one of the best hotels (if not the best) in which I have ever stayed.
We were greeted at the parking lot close to the hotel by the owner, George, and a staff member, Alberto, and they took our luggage and guided us towards the hotel.

The first impression that you will have when will look at the view upon arrival at the hotel will be one that will stay with you for the rest of your life, as the hotel just has a perfect location and the view is amazing.
Due to a mistake made by the travel agency, the room that we booked was actually double booked (the same agency booked the same room, for the same period of time to two couples), and George made all the effort to fix the problem. As we have booked the Rozaki suite, but the other couple arrived before us, they've got the suite, but George gave us the Roza apartment which is a lot bigger and very very nice. It is a cave style house carved into the rock and which has all the things that you will need to have a great stay.
As the apartment was available for only 4 nights and our stay was for seven nights, George pushed the workers to finish the renovation of the next-door villa (Sarris), which will only be opened to the public next year, and gave us access to this amazing brand new property. This villa is something that you only dream to stay in, but I and my wife had access to it, just for us for the last 3 nights. This place will be definitely a great hotel when will be opened to the public next year.

The staff at this hotel is wonderful and will not interfere with your holiday at all, but will help you with whatever you will require. Especially Alberto will go above and beyond to fulfill all the requests that you have, but all the other members of the staff are very helpful.
The breakfast is great,with mainly fresh Greek produce, and will be brought to your room or on the terrace every morning.

The hotel is very clean and is well maintained, and is perfectly located so that you can walk to Fira or Imerovigli, or catch a bus from the nearby bus station.

Maybe you have heard of the nice sunset in Oia and how people are gathering there to watch it together. I would like to say that I much more prefer to watch the sunset from the Ikastikies terrace with a nice glass of wine and that the sunset view from here is at the same level with Oia if not better.

Overall, this hotel is AMAZING, the staff more than great, and fully deserves the maximum available rate.

A special note about George, the owner. I really think that more hotel managers/owners should be like him, probably the greatest hotel owner that I've met, who will care only to make your stay one that you will not forget, and to be a perfect host.

PLEASE DONT LOOK ANY FURTHER - BOOK THIS HOTEL!!

I spent months searching for the perfect hotel to stay in for a surprise holiday for my fiancee's 40th birthday. I was looking for something very specific to make it really special and one to remember. We holiday quite a bit, and have experienced everything from cheap European self catering holidays to 5 star long-haul all inclusives.

My fiancee had mentioned picturesque Greece quite a bit and with his love of sunsets I decided
to look at spending the week in Santorini.

I had quite a specific list of requirements that the hotel needed to have, which were:-
- Typically Greek (white and blues, cave style)
- Had beautiful views of the sunsets,
- Was near to the city centre and hustle and bustle of Fira, without actually being in it
- A special premium boutique feel
- A swimming pool
- A private balcony area
- Served breakfast (either on the balcony or pool area)
- A self catering kitchenette (so that we could make our own lunches or have a few balcony nights)

Ikastikies had it all!! I booked the Rosaki apartments the minute I saw it online. The other 3 rooms were fully booked, and i didn't want to loose out.

We were looked after the minute we stepped off the plane - George the hotel owner was there to pick us up from the airport with a welcoming smile, taking our luggage and driving us in air conditioned style to the hotel. On the way he showed us sights and important landmarks and told us some history of the island and it's residents. He also told us that as they'd had a cancellation and so they were upgrading us to the Rosa Apartment!! Result!!!

On arrival at the hotel we again weren't allowed to lift a finger, the bags were taken to our rooms, and we were treated to wine and fruits, so that we could watch the sun set from our perfectly situated terrace. Basically you have a panoramic and un-interupted view of the stunning sunsets which were truly breath taking.

Throughout our stay George and Albert were amazing! They're attentiveness never wavered. They surprised us with a delicious freshly made birthday cake one morning, and went out of their way to do everything and anything they could for us, from serving us fresh locally sourced produce for breakfast at the swimming pool, to involving us in the Easter celebrations - giving us beautifully decorated candles and telling us all about the local festivities. They were always on site and their door was always open to us for suggesting the best restaurants to go to in and around the area! Nothing was wrong with our appartment - it was perfect, but had there have been they would have sorted it in a flash.

We had the holiday of a lifetime here, and the only down side is that we will be hard pressed to beat that now. We will definitely be returning as soon as we can, I cannot stress enough that your search for hotel MUST end here! Book now!

It is very nice beautiful hotel with excellent services. The owner of the hotel is a great person (his name is George) who always makes sure you enjoy your stay and have a wonderful vacation. He provides you with any information you need (where to go, what and where to eat, what to see). Great breakfast, alot of food, everything was tasteful. Room was too big for me, but I guess it is a good thing. Walking distance to town. Amazing view. Love this place.

this reveiw is long overdue, but this hotel was so amazing i had to make sure it got said. My husband and I travel alot and we were at this hotel in 2009, and since then every place we have gone to fails in comparision. The hotel is small and intimate, you never have to fight crowds, you have the total privacy you want to enjoy santorini at your own pace. The veiws from the hotel can not be put into words.. we had the sunset picture from our trip blow up into a wall mural that is how breaqthtaking it was. though the hotel, room and veiws were beyond amazing, the staff at this hotel surpassed all those items. They were what made this stay incredible, and all staff, every single one of them. they gave you the privacy you want, but were there for you at a moments notice, they went above and beyond to help on every aspect of our trip. We just can not recommend this hotel enough, and being that we have travelled to almost all sides of the world , this hotel still ranks as one of the best we have stayed at. It is a garanteed you will remeber a trip to this hotel for the rest of your life and talk about it for years after like we do!!

Room Tip: Any room in this hotel is amazing.
