Astra Suites
Ranked #5 of 50 Hotels in Imerovigli
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 June 2013

Astra Suites was generously recommended by the owner of Voreina Suites Gallery (an excellent boutique hotel we highly recommend as well), when we were unhappy with our accommodation in Oia. We were really grateful they referred us to Astra. George Karayiannis, Director of Astra, personally welcomed us, gave us valuable tips about the island (the best written manual even the locals would approve), and sent us bottle of champagne with truffles on a windy day to cheer us up. The Jr. Suite we were upgraded to was adorable, with views of the caldera all around. Amenities with Bulgari toiletries were a plus. Breakfast served the best homemade croissants we ever had and Santorini omelets suited to our taste. Front desk staff (especially Helen) and Pano, and restaurant staff, were all super helpful, always attending to our endless requests (flights, tour, ferry, restaurants) with smiles and professionalism. Astra has the best view of the Caldera and best of all, quiet and peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of Fira and Oia. It is a gorgeous property, well managed and pristinely maintained. We had the room by the pool (201) while it may not be as private for others, we like the convenience and so were really happy with it. While May is low season, the weather was unpredictable (hot some days, windy and cold some other days). In order to fully experience and enjoy the amenities at Astra, good weather is imperative. Helen recommended September, and we will listen to her the next time we visit! Overall, Astra is a valuable gem for accommodation in Santorini, especially for those who can't get enough of the Caldera view and sunsets. Thank you all at Astra for making our trip so memorable and enjoyable!

my husband myself and family arrived here on 22 may 2013. for a week stay in the astra suites. having already been fortunate to have stayed in imerovigli the year before in the hotel above these suites , so we new the lay of the land and were very excited to visit this area again. we had researched the astra suites and knew they had high standards and excellent customer service skills . on arrival we had a glitch with the air con and when the maintenance guys came to our suite and they couldn't fix the problem , Georges the general manager offered us an upgraded room to compensate us we were delighted with our new suite and it came with its own private pool which was a generous gesture that we were all delighted with, we had to move again to another suite as that room was only available for 4 nights but we new Georges had done his best for us as a family and we were happy to move again to another suite .we ate at the restaurant most evenings and the menu had enough choice for all our family it was well presented and the waitress Christine offered us her expert opinion on choices to try her manner was exceptional and she went all out to be very helpful she is an asset to the astra suites and wish her well . on the whole all the staff went out of there way to be friendly and always with a smile. Georges team are all well mannered and happy to help, we loved the pool area the view is the nicest we have seen in all our travels it is hard to beat. the breakfast was always delivered to our room on time, we all enjoyed the pastries they were as nice as any french bakery we have tried , thank you to Georges and his team for giving us a vacation to remember . we wish Georges all the very best for the future and continue to be the top accommodation on the island as it so deserves ,

This is the place to be in Santorini. Our room with our private balcony and hot tub faced the sunset (the famous santorini sunset that should not be missed!). The service alone is incredible. They serve you bfast every morning on your balcony and give you tons of different tips when traveling through the island. When we come back to Santorini we have to stay here. Our honeymoon suite was amazing, large and located on the best side of the island.

Both my husband and I have been very lucky to have travelled in some amazing places around the world and we both are happy to say that our stay in Astra is the most rewarding and enjoyable experience we've had.
I have been to Astra another time and knew what to expect: excellence in EVERY aspect.
My husband who's been to Santorini many times in the past but had stayed in other top hotels in the island admitted that it was by far the best in every way!
Apart from the breath-taking views, the impeccable style, the attention to the last detail in the honeymoon jacuzzin suites, the manager, G. Karagiannis and all personnel know what hospitality is all about! They were all very helpful in any request we possibly had and know what to do to spoil their guests! The room service is very friendly yet very discreet as well.
The location has it all: amazing views, convenience as it is on the path to Fira, and privacy.
We couldn't ask for more - we're definitely coming back!

We went to Astra in May 2013. Having already been to Santorini half a dozen times, I knew what to expect from the island. The weather, the views, the ambience is unique. Santorini is one of these places that you *have to* visit at least once in your lifetime.

It was the first time I stayed in Astra, having stayed at other top-class hotels in Oia and elsewhere. My wife had already stayed at Astra in the past, and she was full of praise about it. I was initially apprehensive but once we got there I was amazed.

As far as facilities, rooms etc, most people would agree that there are 4-5 hotels in Santorini which are pretty evenly matched (Astra included of course). However, in terms of service, Astra is way ahead. The manager, George Karayiannis, is one of those rare people who actually puts maximum effort into making the guests' stay perfect. This guy has done his homework, and it shows. From the moment you set foot on the hotel till the moment you (very sadly) leave, every single member of staff makes a conscious effort to make your stay an unforgettable one. Every request is met with a super positive attitude and things just get done.

I've been fortunate enough to have travelled to many exotic places (Maldives, Mauritius, Jamaica, Barbados and most of Europe), and I've stayed in some of the best hotels in the world. I can confidently say that Astra is world-class. Both in terms of facilities and (most importantly) service.

We stayed in a Honeymoon Suite and it was great. The room is very large, as is the bathroom, and the decor is simple but charming. It had all the amenities you might need, including a closet with a concealed kitchenette. The outdoor jacuzzi was very private with a great view. Everything was super clean and it was obvious that cleanliness is a top priority at Astra.

The location (Imerovigli) is roughly in the middle of the island so no destination is too far away. You can take a 30-minute walk to Fira - I highly recommend this - and enjoy the world-renowned views of the Caldera. The hotel staff can help arrange boat rides to the volcano, wine tours etc - definitely recommended if you have the time.

All in all, this is THE place to stay if you go to Santorini. I will never forget our stay there, and will be definitely returning in the near future. Well done Astra.

This trip was an absolute treat!! My husband and I got a voucher for Mr & Mrs Smith as a wedding gift and this was honestly the best place we could have picked!
The view was breathtaking!! The room was cute yet trendy. The hospitality was brilliant!
All the staff were so friendly, helpful and kind.
We were treated by Mr & Mrs Smith to a chilled bottle of wine on arrival and champagne, strawberries and chocolate truffles by the pool during sunset on our second day! The island is so beautiful and quaint and there is plenty to do! I would definitely recommend Astra Suites 100 percent! It was truly luxurious!!

I have been very lucky through out my life to have travelled both for work ( I work in travel) and also for pleasure and as such have stayed in some amazing places around the world. Never though have I experienced what I would consider to be perfection until now. From the moment we met both Georges and we were shown to our room to the sad day we had to leave we have been waited on and had our every wish anticipated before we even thought about wanting it! The chefs cooked fabulous food which was delivered to our room by the lovely Christina or by the always on hand Costas in the restaurant.
Every night the view into the caldera amazed from our balcony and even a little rain didn't dampen our trip!
The rooms are very generous in size with lots of free space to spread out your stuff! The path to Fira and Oia walks right around the hotel and makes for very easy access to Fira ( wear ur runners though!) and walk both ways because you will see things on the return you missed on the way down. Be prepared for some achy legs cause you will walk a lot of ups and downs and steps!! The bus for the island stops close by and a local tour guide I met brings his clients to the church at the base of the hotel for sunset pics as he believes its the best view of it on the island..
One check out I was asked to name one thing I would change or add and honestly couldn't think of anything. From now onwards its going to be tough for any hotel to beat the standard the Astra has set!! So our thanks to George and the crew at Astra for their genuine hospitality, their friendship and for helping make our trip to santorini so unforgettable.
