We travel but we don't write reviews, but I will definitely write one for this hotel. I hope I will write some more since I have done this one. If you are looking for a hotel within this budget or even bigger budget, we highly recommend this hotel for you. I don't understand how they justify their low price for the best service they offer to their guests. Don't look any further as you are wasting your time.
Babis Hotel made our stay in Santorini comfortable and so easy due to the staff helpfulness, service and their excellent work ethics. When you are overseas travelling, you would feel so grateful for these. We have stayed in similar (but slightly more expensive) hotels in Mykonos and Naxos but Babis Hotel offers so much more. We are surprised how this is even possible, considering Santorini is very popular.
The room looks and smells clean, dustless -even the window curtain is super clean, the bathroom is clean -yes, the shower head does not have an attachment to the wall, but it's really nothing, the room size is very good, the aircon works well, the desk/wall decorations are cute, the breakfast size is substantial, the swimming pool is nice and well located, the hourly trip to Fira is always good, the staff is extremely caring and helpful and the wifi is reliable.
The free transport to Fira every hour is perfect. We can walk or take a bus to go back to the hotel. The road -less than 2km can be a bit tricky in a few places but the 2 minutes bus ride for €1.60 is nothing when you spend hundreds/thousands of € in total for everything else. I used a public bus every time as I am not very comfortable walking there. The bus conductor who collects your bus fee would call you happily when they reach Babis Hotel -make sure you tell him when he collects money from you.
We had to go to the airport at 03:45AM in the morning and when we arranged a taxi booking through the hotel, Babis Jr insisted to take us there and we refused as we didn't want to ruin someone's sleep (we understood they offered a free shuttle bus, but at 3:45AM??). However, he just kept insisting, he even refused our gratitude tips.
Best of luck for Babis!
