Hotel Ira is an incredible value compared to the other hotels of similar quality located on the caldera, as it was 50-60% cheaper than comparable places. The hotel is magically laid out with a bunch of little paths and foot bridges. Having booked a room without a view since it was considerably cheaper, it was especially kind of the staff to upgrade us to what I thought was perhaps the best room of the entire hotel, the Iris Room. We not only had views overlooking the caldera, but the room was big and we had our own private little bridge and walkway to our room. All of this for no additional cost. The man working the reception (sorry I forgot the name, but we stayed at so many places during our 6 week trip) was super laid back and easy going, as well as friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is perfect as you are only a 15 minute walk into Fira along a gorgeous path, yet far enough away from Fira where you can escape the frenzy of tourists and have some peace and quiet, especially in the evening. The pool of the hotel is nothing spectacular, but the pool deck is a great place to hang out on and watch the sunset. One thing that made this hotel stand out from the rest on our trip was the breakfast. Truly a fabulous breakfast with great tasting food and a varied selection that changed daily. This hotel is a must when visiting Santorini and we would surely stay here again. Thank you for such a great stay!
