We stayed in Vallas Apartments for a week. The view over the Santorini caldera is stunning. A short 15 minute walk to the centre of the main town makes it a very convenient place to stay with great restaurants, tourist shopping and the central bus station all easy to reach. Two separate self contained apartments sharing a balcony made it super when travelling as a small group. Ioannis and the staff were friendly, helpful and keen to fix any minor problems. There is even a great restaurant next door for an end of evening drink. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Vallas Apartments to anyone fit enough to manage steps. You will have a holiday to remember.

Good location on the main path between Thira/Firostefani. The view of the sunset from the pool is almost as great as in Oia. Staff was great, helping with advice, ensuring we got a good breakfast, and walking us to the corner to ensure we got in the right mini-bus for our trip to the port.
Rooms are simple but nice and clean. Kitchenette and a day-bed. Nothing fancy but very comfortable and enjoyable.

The value here, what you pay., for what you get, is superb. Some of the other villas, that are 2 or 3 times the price, are literally 20 yards away. Great location, great service, comfy rooms, pool, view....
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: 2nd/3rd level, near the pool/patio seem to be better than the ground-floor rooms.

This small, cozy family run hotel was great. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the view was incredible. Not only this but it was just a 10 minute walk from the main town which was perfect. The main town, Thira, can get quite crowded and noisey so being a little away was very nice. The staff was wonderful they treated us with a lot of hospitality and kindness. Yannis the manager/receptionist was incredible he organized everything for us and made sure that we were comfortable the entire stay. The owners George and Antonis were equally kind! Overall a great choice.

We had a great time in Santorini and stay at Vallas Apartments. The service was excellent- very kind and helpful staff. On our arrival they gave us an envelope with map, information and history of Santorini as well as places (places of interest, bars, restaurants etc.) worth visiting.
We liked very much the room which was into the rock and was very authentic (in the main building).
The view from the terrace was amazing! I can not remember anything I didn't like.
All the photos I post here are from the hotel.
Santorini is a place everyone should visit!

The location was amazing with views of the sunset over the caldera as well as the sunrise! Tge staff were unbelievably friendly and offered great advice on things to do and see as well as all the best restaurants to try. They were always more than happy to go out of their way to assist! The apartment is only a 10 minute walk to thira so location is fantastic and it is easy to get to the beaches or around the island. I can't speak highly enough of this place

A little overdue but I was all over Europe before I came back home. It was a pleasant stay at Vallas Apartments. First we were really impressed when Stefanos, the manager of the group of hotels, arranged for us to rest in another suite after our tiring early morning flight while Vallas Apartments was ready for us. He then drove us personally to Vallas apartments where the friendly Mr Vallas greeted us. I did not get the his name but I read from the recent it should be Yiannis, the hotel manager who was always very patient and thoughtful. Firostefani is just a short walk away from Fira and a lovely area to stay in. Sunset at the viewing deck is like better than the one I see in Oia! I'd probably stay here again if I ever go back to Santorini (not so soon since i live 9500 miles away!)

We had an amazing view and the room was really large and clean. The breakfast was great and included bacon and eggs. It was a short walk to the shops from the hotel. Yani really looked after us. It was my friends birthday and he organized a cake and candles at no charge. He made our stay very special.
