We stayed 4 nights here in a studio apt. with terrace on a 5 week greek island holiday. It stands out for 4 reasons.
1. Location - It is on the 10km footpath that runs from Fira to Ia so you can easily walk the 2km into Fira through the little alleyways to catch buses to the beaches or go on the excellent excursion to the Volcano Island and Hot springs (which are NOT hot - 24 degrees water) and you can do the amazing 8km walk along the caldera to Ia which in itself is far nicer and less crowded during the day than Fira. The Apt. are not on the cascading side of the cldera (which are expensive) but from the sun terrace or roof terraces of the more expensive studios you get views over the caldera and can see the sunsets. The apt. are actually in front of a street/car parking area but it is not noisy.
2. The rooms. Ours was full of character, v. small but good wardrobe space. They are full of 'cycladic' features with little arches and ornaments but not cluttered. Main disadvantage to our studio was it was downstairs with no views, the tiny terrace you share with 2 other rooms is below street level and not plasant to sit in. It also got only a couple hours morning sun and drying clothes was impossible. It is best to go up to the main terrace near the little pool where you get breakfast to sit and sunbathe.
3. Breakfast - keeps you going all day. Tray with ham/cheese toastie, choc croissant, bowl yogurt, bowl fruit etc.
4. Staff. A young friendly and helpful group. They will pick you up and take you to the port a good 20 min.drive away.
In all this place was great for a budget place to stay in the midst of the expensive villa/apts. of Santorini.
