“excellent little hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

We stayed at the Avra for 1 week in September 2013 it was our first time in Santorini, it was in great location in Kamari close to the beach and restaurants .Rooms were cleaned daily with fresh towels, with a good continental breakfast.
Spiridoula was great with her local knowledge and helpfulness on how to see the island.
Will return back there next year.

First visit to Santorini but happy with Kamari as a central base to explore the island from. Avra was good value and in convenient location - close to beach and restaurants. Looks well maintained from exterior though rooms are a little more basic inside - bathroom is a bit of a squeeze. Helpful staff furnished us with all the information we needed about buses and tours when we first arrived. Would use again.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

We stayed at the Avra Hotel in August 2013. Our friends were getting married on the island. We were a large group of 18 and firstly I would like to apologies to the owners as on occasion we were loud (there were 90 of us on the island altogether, so there was a lot of to and fro between hotels). If you see a bad review about noise around this time then please take this as a one off as I am sure that it is not often that they get 18 single friends in their hotel.

Spiridoula and Maria on reception were lovely and always willing to help, whether is was giving advice of where to go or booking taxi's to get you there. Breakfast was basic but if you wanted more than toast or cereal you are within 1 minute walk of the nearest restaurant.

As the hotel doesn't have a bar we found that we were at an advantage as we were able to pick up cheap drinks and snacks from the local shop again only 1 minute down the road.

Rooms were cleaned daily, with fresh towels. The showers are a little small but we just kept the doors open as the main bathroom floor has a drain.

We had a fabulous time in Santorini, beautiful island, lovely people, amazing scenery. I will definitely be back.

This little hotel is all you need if you are on a budget!!

Thank you Avra and apologies again!

We stayed at the Avra Hotel for two weeks in August 2013 and really enjoyed staying there and loved Kamari and Santorini. As people have described the hotel is in a great location for the beach and restaurants/tavernas/bars/supermarkets etc, but far enough away so you get very little noise.
All of the staff were very friendly and helpful, with special mention to Spiridoula and Maria who would always go out of their way to help with any questions, car hire, trips, restaurant recommendations etc. They certainly helped us to see and experience a lot of this beautiful island.
The hotel rooms are split over 3 blocks. Our room (no. 41) was near the back of the property and really clean and quiet, the sheets and towels were changed regularly and the surroundings areas were also kept very clean.
The hotel has a good size pool with plenty of sunloungers. The pool and surrounding pool area was kept spotless.
A number of people have mentioned the breakfast being repetitive but we found there was a good choice which was regularly replenished
This is a great little hotel, which is in an excellent location, is clean with helpful and friendly staff. We would definitely stay here again and intend to re-visit in 2014.

This hotel is pretty simple, but good. I liked the garden as well and the rooms were good but the bathroom could have been bigger, especially the shower!! (and I am skinny!!) like many people on here have said: they could be a bit more inventive about the breakfast - it was always the same 'okay' bread, some cheese and okay sausage, and some jam (but good yogurt) What/ who I really liked was the receptionist Spiridoula and Maria, as well. They were always nice, happy go lucky and very helpful explaining things, giving tips for some trips to take, etc. I really liked that!! :) All in all: I enjoyed staying there, there are better hotels and more exclusive hotels, but for this price, it was good.

Room Tip: my room was pretty good. Like I said: the shower (and I didn't have a bathtub) was very small...

Set amidst well-tended gardens, Hotel Avra features a nice size pool with sun terrace and sun loungers, just 100 metres from Kamari Beach in Santorini. It offers free Wi-Fi in its public areas and air-conditioned units with a private balcony.
Our room view was over the garden & very quiet.. only 100 yds from the Aegean Sea. Equipped with a fridge, a fan and a TV with satellite channels.Private bathroom was with a hairdryer.
We started our day with a buffet breakfast served daily in the dining area. Restaurants, bars and shops can be found within a short walk from the property. Overall we had a fantastic time & its a very nice place to stay with very friendly staff.
