The hotel has a very beautiful commun area, a very nice swimming pool, a nice terrace with a view to the sunset, and is very well located in Oia. The rooms are big and calm. The reception gives good directions and informations to visit the island. The rooms are dark, and the one we had, the bathroom was in a cave and it smelled really bad, the smell would spread to the whole room, really unpleasant. We asked the staff if they could change us to another room and they said they were full, considering our stay was for four days. The breakfast is very poor, and repetitive. You really don t get the services, amenities, and rooms structures that you expect for the price paied. The breakfast is from 8h30am untill 10am, and receptions closes at 8h30pm.
The staff is friendly and the hotel is nice to stay. The chair at the balcony is a bit dusty and my room couldn't detect the WIFI connection.
I liked that the hotel had a pool and a sunset terrace. They were able to change our hotel room after we were displeased with the first room they gave to us which was dark, unwelcoming and cave-like room. I like that they offered us a small bottle of wine on our welcome. They told us it was complimentary because we were on our honeymoon however every person we saw check in to the hotel received one too! The people at the desk were not very friendly or helpful. The hotel was way overpriced for the amenities and services they include. The breakfast was horrible, canned fruit, packaged meats and stale bread. Our toilet was broken for a day and a half. We were on our honeymoon and very happy to leave this hotel after 3 nights and find somewhere else to stay.
Aethrio was a slice of heaven! The double room we had was very large with a sofa and big cabinet/dresser. The bathroom was modern and clean. The hotel itself was splendid, atmospheric, and all the rooms appeared to have private balconies. The rooftop patio had fantastic views with sea on either side including view of the beautiful sunset of Santorini. The owner was very kind and helpful. Altogether this hotel is great value for money. The hotel front desk closed by 8:30 p.m. which is just about the time you want to order a drink before catching the sunset. Otherwise we have no other complaints!
Great location. Very rustic. The suite was enormous and had great outdoor space and lovely views (although not of the caldera). Quite expensive but when compared to others in Oia I suppose its is reasonable. Very poor breakfast in terms of variety and quantity. Breakfast finished at 10am - too early! They continually ran out of breakfast items (eggs and greek yoghurt) and did not replace them. Pool furniture consisted of a few comfortable sun loungers and lots of hard plastic ones which would not tilt. We used some glasses for drinks and the cleaners did not clean or replace them - they left the dirty glasses in the room.
The had a lovely ambiance with the typical style of the white buildings with blue doors in Santorini. The water pressure was low in the shower.
its a really nice hotel to explore Santorini, especially for watching sunset in Oia. very closed to bus station in Oia, friendly stuff and beautiful countyard. i am impressived the breakfast i had on the top stage in this hotel, facing to sea, thats amazing! the floor of bathroom was always very wet after shower but there is no mat to avoid slip, but they cleaned everyday so its not too inconvenient.
I liked the location and the tranquility of the place, although close to shopping and city center. The staff is very nice and helpful.
The location was great and staff helpful, The pool was wonderful The shower was small but adequate
I like the hotel design and location.
Staff was super focused on individual service and locations was absolutely perfect. All was perfect
Everything is perfect... room, view, breakfast, service...
The beauty of the site, the service, The room was very spare in furniture and decorations, the couch was not comfortable and the surface space was much too limited.
The staff, the room and the breakfast The swimming pool is small
location is ideal bed was in very poor condition. The room smelled from bleach when we arrived.
The location was superb. The views were unbeatable and the hotel was close to all the restaurants and shops, yet was at the same time quiet. The breakfast was not worht the EUR 10 that was charged for it.
Great location if you want to stay in Oia. Beautiful views from rooms and terrace. Steps weren't a problem as the friendly staff help with cases and getting to taxi. Rooms were well presented and clean. Only gripe is the pool, not as well kept as the rest of the hotel- broken tiles, etc. Other than that I would recommend.
The hotel staff were excellent. The customer service was outstanding, and the view to the Caldera was amazing.It was one of our best vacation with my husband, and we would love to go back to Armeni Village. The views from our bedroom were breathtaking! I liked everything about the hotel. Location
Pleasant and Friendly staff.
the view is astonish and the people very nice. a different hotel.
Perfect location and amazing view on the Bay and Oia! Breakfast to be improve...
the view was amazing!!!! unreal....picture perfect.... the staff were exceptional and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable.....breakfast was nice to have on patio overlooking sea cliff....no problem to use there computer....loved talking to the women who owed the hotel and All the other staff of course! the description of the room vs what we got was not the same! we booked a one bed one bedroom with a jacuzzi and found the jacuzzi for all to use! a mix up on words we believe ....Pool was in desperate need of a cleaning as well as lots of tiles were missing! green algae on sides. the bed was a disaster! of course this was our honeymoon! so having a comfortable bed was important!
Good location and a nice view of the caldera Breakfast is poor and the bathroom to small
We've had a wonderful stay in this fantastic and hotel for our honeymoon. It's just located on the cliff of Firostefani and very close to that famous church on most of the postcards. The view from the private balcony is absolutely amazing and we watch the sunset everyday there.The staffs are very friendly and helpful. The facilities are full equipped in the room and also the design is quite...
The staff at the hotel were helpful. The room was a bit dated but we didn't spend a lot of time there. The location is at the end of the village in Oia which was fine as we were away for other travellers. It is on the main level so minimal stairs
Room location and view from our balcony. Breakfast was sufficient. Long climb up the stairs which are on a steep incline.
Hard to beat for the price point. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Highlights: 1) The staff: Never saw anyone at the hotel who WASN'T smiling. They went above and beyond to provide relevant and useful advice, arrange any excursions, and improve the stay. 2) The facilities: The common areas were beautiful, the room was spacious and comfortable. 3) The convenient location: The hotel is located across from a couple shops (including a grocery store) and just down the street from the nightlife and tourist attractions- without being so close that you have to hear the bass of the clubs all night (unless you are into that!) Santorini is renowned for its panoramic views of the beach- this location does not provide that. Also, the rooms are not sound proof so if you are a light sleeper it could be an issue.
Location is great Bathroom toilets are in a real tight space Beautiful location, excruciating walk
The personal service was wonderful. The fellow that works there even carried one of our bags up all the stairs to the street level...unexpected assistance that was greatly appreciated, thank you :)) The view was to die for and the sunsets were amazing. We had a great balcony and could even use the wifi outside!! One friendly suggestion - perhaps a longer shower curtain or higher shower surround to prevent water all over floor.
The view was amazing! The staff was very helpful. The beds are uncomfortable.
Very good location, nice pool area and terraces, excellent staff, good with fridge in the room and the possibility to bring your own drinks outside. Rooms are more 3 star standard but the outdoor hotel area is very nice which compensate.
The views, the wonderful staff and the breakfast served on the balcony every morning . Great for couples None
when we complained see the below we got upgarded to a lovely hotel. Except we had to stay one more night in Athina we were underneath the breakfast terrace and everytime someone moved a chair to sit down it would be noisy in our room. We were next to the pool and when the filters were turned on in the morning it had a loud humming noise in our room. The bed was very old and everytime one of us moved it was squeak. Because of the above it was not worth the price
Absolutely lovely hotel and just the right touch of liveliness.
classy property with experienced committed personable staff ...excellent attention to detail...serene environment and magnificent vista...elegant yet casual.
An amazing setting complimented by fantastically attentive staff
The staff was incredible and the resort was beautiful. We loved the close proximity to Oia (short walk) and the views were absolutely stunning. We also loved eating lunch there (wonderful food with impeccable service). I wouldn't change a single thing about Kirini. No, it was stunning and the service was impeccable.
The all-white interiors and exteriors were exactly as per the photos - we were very pleased with that. The spatial quality and service experience was very good. Food was also great just 1 small unpleasant incident that is not really due to hotel - the hotel promises that their guests are given priority at selected restaurants but despite making a booking for Ambrosia & Nectar through the hotel, the maitre-d was extremely rude and dismissive.
Sentralt i Oia og fantastisk utsikt! Lite basseng, men perfekt for en avkjølende dukkert. Rolig og avslappende atmosfære. Er litt trapper ned til hotellet, så egner seg ikke for eldre som er dårlig til bens. Bryllupssuiten var litt dyr ifht til standarden (men Oia er jo generelt dyrt)
Beliggenheten er alfa og omega her. Personalet veldig hyggelige og hjelpsomme. Absolutt et deilig sted. Lange trapper som utelukker folk med dårlig fysikk.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the Fira location was convenient. The hotel, an updated former mansion, was very charming. The view is not that spectacular since the hotel is not at the edge of the cliff and is surrounded by other buildings. I would have preferred a view that shows more of the sea and volcano.
The staff are very professional and work hard to please their clients. We loved the proximity of the hotel to everything we wanted to see in downtown Fira, the suggestions made by Ana the manager, and the handling of the overbooking issue. For the question about the usefulness of the reviews, there are not any displayed yet.
Central location, clean, nice staff and hotel.
It was a quiet hotel, with friendly staff and generally good service. A perfect place to escape from the world. I had to ask for the bed linen to be changed on one day.
This hotel was excellent! Great location, helpful staff and very relaxing by the pool. Most important to know are directions as website is not accurate and no pick up from airport or ferry offered. Walk up the pedestrian street (Main St) over the cobble stones and walk up the hill about 600m, walk past Hertz and turn left just after Sun Sand & Sports and you will see the hotel. There are no signs and most locals don't know where it is.
The staff was always extremely helpful and friendly. Wonderful and sweet location. Everything nice and clean. Site is located in the centre of Fira but still really quiet. A place to relax.
The staffs are very nice. we loved the environment. and it is close to the Fira center, just few walking time. lovely hotel!!!!
Location, location, location... Curtains too thin, bathroom less lights, a/c behind the curtains, bed could have been bigger in size.
Aria Lito was a lovely place that provided the perfect atmosphere for our stay. The staff were excellent and went out of their way to help.
Super place to stay in Fira. Location is fantastic and plenty of room. A quiet place in the centre of town. Htel staff go out of their way to make you feel special..
Hyggelig personale, koselig uteområde. Litt langt fra byen. Badet var litt lite.
Meget hyggelig og hjelpsom innehaver. OK beliggenhet; 10 min. gange fra butikker og restauranter (I Fira er Naoussas best!) og butikker. Hyggelig hage. Ikke wireless internett på rommet, bare på felles-PC. Dessverre dårlig dusjløsning; ikke veggfeste, og dårlig forheng - det blir veldig vått overalt på det lille toalettet.
Hotellet var veldig koselig. Romene var rene og vellutstyrt. Stedet hadde sjarm, og vi ble varmt tatt imot av hotellets eier. Servicen var utmerket! Hotellet lå 5-10 minutters gange fra Thira.Vi var veldig fornøy med beliggenheten! Vi trivdes så godt på hotellet de 3 første dagene at vi etter 3 ukers øyhopping avsluttet oppholdet vårt i Hellas på Galatias Villas. God valutta for pengene. Vi reiser gjerne tilbake!
Veldig behagelig og avslappende opphold på hotellet
Beliggenhet, fasiliteter, strand og basseng.Stort og rent rom. Enkel standard men rent og velholdt. Bedre service innstilling hos personale. Rydde stranden og legge bedre tilrette for å gå til Kamari Beach
Pent hotell med nydelige blomster og planter,meget godt renhold ,gratis solsenger og håndklær. Serviceminded personell, spesielt i resepsjonen. Alt for få solsenger på stranden, de få som fantes var allerede reservert i løpet av natten i form av pålagte håndklær. Dette burde vært regulert av hotellets personale. Middagstilbudet var dårlig, et 4 -stjerners hotell burde ha en a`la carte meny ! Bare en rett ble tilbudt av dårlig kvalitet.
The location was excellent and watching the sunset view from our balcony was an amazing experience. The room was over-priced (you definitely pay for the view), but the amenities were no better than any other place we stayed in Greece (most of which we payed 1/7 the price for!). Also, I wish I had been forewarned that this hotel, like many in Oia, requires hiking up and down many, many stone steps. It is not for anyone of questionable fitness or mobility.
Fantastic view. Nice rooms, very good breakfast. Will stay again;) Sometimes the water from the shower is not warm nor strong enough.
The location was absolutely spectacular and the room was exactly what we were hoping for. The cave rooms were traditional, yet they included the modern conveniences in a way that didn't seem out of place. The view from the hotel was a postcard at every turn. The hotel was perfectly located for everything we wanted to do, everything was within walking distance. We didn't dislike this aspect of the hotel, but I would like to state that the stairways of this type of hotel are difficult to navigate for anyone but the most agile and healthy. Anyone with any type of walking difficulty, including arthritis, would have a difficult time navigating the steps to the rooms and pool.
This hotel has an excellent setting in Oia; well designed and charming. It sits well in the ambience of Oia. A perfect location to see the setting of the sun. The traditional cave houses and the "cave-like" pool too. An unforgettable experience. Many guest reviews complain about the steps, the climbing to reach this hotel but I think that that is necessary considering the location and the very nature of Oia. I booked a single room and was given the smallest room with no windows, no air-conditioning...the so-called window is wired...hence, very little air...also I felt that they should lower the price for that small room (where the main electricity box is) if the management still consider it decent to rent out. I felt short-changed in some ways. What makes my stay pleasant is the facilities and the excellent staff service.
The city of Oia Definitely not worth the price. Very old looking bathroom. Minimalist breakfast for a 4 stars hotel. Hotel acces is hard : 10 minutes of walk with a lot of stairs (hotel crew can help with the luggages).
the view ; the swimming pool . too expensive for what it was offering
Wonderful location, particularly for sunsets, great staff and wonderful outdoor lounge area. I was given a small room, fit only for an individual, which was ok, but it was really small, their smallest room, I called it a cave room with no room for even a small table and a chair. So, I had a bed and a bathroom/shower but that was it. I wished I had known it was going to be so small.
View is amazing. Staff was not friendly and our room, a cave room was a bit of a dissapointment but you are paying for the view and it is worth it. Regardless of all the negatives, I would probably recommend the hotel due to the view/location but I think expectations should be managed. I would also recommend looking at other similar hotels for the same price point to see if some offer similar views with better service. Poor service. Booked through booking.com. No one told us to check in at an office management company near the bus stop. Spent a lot of time trying to find hotel and when did, they seemed annoyed that we hadn't previously checked in with the management company. After we started unpacking our stuff, realized that the only light in the bathroom was not working and it took over an 1 hour to have it replaced which delayed our plans for dinner. Decor of the room was underwhelming, box spring of the bed was a piece of plywood, bathroom sink was leaking water onto the floor. When lying by the pool reading, staffer stood next to my lounge chair and talked on her cell phone for over 10 mins. Seemed annoyed when asked for clean plates at breakfast
fantastic view, amazing location difficult to access hotel from parking, a bit too "rustic", breakfast very basic
We stayed here 10 years ago and realized there are a lot of other options...Oia Mare needs to update their facility and service to keep up with their competition. However, the views are incredible and we loved the location. I did not like the fact that there was not one drawer to put our belongings in. Amenities in the room were the bare minimum and could be improved.
Nice views of volcano & harbour Hard bed, no shower curtain for shower, thin towels. Locals said it is not good value and owner /manager writes the reviews for Trip Advisor.
Det ligger veldig sentralt, men samtidig ikke i byen. Det er lite og personlig, og rommene (i alle fall noen) er romslige. Rent og ordentlig, hyggelig service og hjelpsom resepsjon. Egentlig ingeting.
Beliggenhet i forhold til Fira. Fint badebasseng . Flott utsikt Vi savnet å kunne kjøpe drikke på hotellet, samt at hovedveien lå 3 m fra vår terasse!
The fantastic atmosphere, authentic design and convenient location Transfer did not turn up as organised
The location is all that was appealing, unfortunately. The room was dirty, there was a fridge but no water supplied, tea and coffee facilities but no tea and coffee. Breakfast was disappointing. 4 star prices for 2 star accomodation.
Beautiful view We were very disappointed with our room. The weather was cold and rainy so we turned on the heat in our room. Each time we turned on the heat, the circuit breaker flipped off all the power. This happened several times during the evening. We talked to reception and they sent someone to show us how to reset the breaker. In the morning we used the hair dryer which was provided and again the circuit breaker flipped off all the power. We were unable to reset this time. We walked to reception with wet hair and requested a new room. We were told there was no room available.
My stay at the Residence Suites was most comfortable and pleasant. I loved the traditional cicladic style of the houses. Caves are furnished simply but elegant and a great part of the comfort is provided by the staff who cant do more to make one happy. Excellent service! The location, most important- in Oia village. Shoots that I took can beat and compete with the post cards, and I am not a professional. The steps everyone talks about make the difference and the charm! Santorini is magnificent and the Greek food its like a good novel.
Staff were very helpful. All transfers were on time. The view was fantastic. The bed was up a ladder on a landing. For people in their fifties this was initially a challenge but we became used to it.
The view was fantastic! The loft was spacious, it was like having your own little cave house. The cave walls of the loft made the room extremely cold at night.
Lovely location, with a gorgeous view of the caldera. Diana (at the tourism information centre at the bus stop) was extremely helpful - with the booking as well as with general sightseeing tips and suggestions. Slightly hard to locate on your own the first few times. The first night there, we spent almost an hour trying to find the room in the maze of tiny paths.
It has a good envirement with a nice seashore view and warm hearted residence in the small town of Santorini island, Greece. There are some small insects on the bed mattress, such as small black ants, small spiders, green-flies, which really caused our worry and sometime sleepless in the night.
The room has both sea view and sunset view, close to oia center. Of courses, we also like the big breakfast served every morning.
We loved this hotel!!! Most amazing view you will ever see from our balcony, plus we could see the famous Oia sunset right from our room. Staff were very helpful and provided a delicious breakfast to our balcony every day. Short walk to centre of Oia (15 mins). Definitely the highlight of our trip to Oia.
Loved our stay at Oia Suites. Staff were excellent and very helpful. Amazing view from our room. Great place to relax. If you stay at the Oia Suites, it is a must that you go to the Santorini Tavern for dinner, its located directly across the road. Thanks for the great Greece experience :)
Santorini itself is absolute heaven and the hotel is very well located, slightly away from the bustle of Oia. We found this positive but a short walk to the village. And if you stay there, it is imperative to eat at the best restaurant in Oia which is right across the road. The staff are also fantastic, and the breakfasts - just incredible. Very good value for money. All in all the most fantastic place we have ever stayed at in many years of travel There is nothing not to like about the hotel at all
It was a very comfortable suite and the views of the water and islands were fantastic.
