We arrived in Santorini without reservations and spent a good deal of time looking for a hotel. I knew I had to have a caldera view, but didn't want to spend our entire vacation budget on one! Finally I found the Hotel Mylos! You could easily miss it or not know about its great views...look for the windmill in Firostefani. We stayed 4 nights. For 60 Euro a night this a good hotel choice.
It is not luxury, so if you must have all the comforts in the world you might not care for it...but we had a good experience. The only warning to have is that there aren't shower curtains...and the bathroom doubles as the entire shower...but it was still worth it in my opinion.
The owners have a little shop downstairs to buy groceries, and there is a wonderful little coffee shop across the street called 'Fresh Coffee' that has fresh baked pastries in the mornings for breakfast. The view was as breathtaking as any hotel on the caldera (which would have cost twice the price).
No matter what, definintely stay in Firostefani. It's a short walk and its quiet at night...and the views are breathtaking. The photo is from our balcony at sunset.
