An excellent budget hotelPosted Sep 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed here in August 2013. At first we were shocked on arriving as we were expecting four star as Hotels.com and expedia had said. Its not a four star hotel, but it is a fantastically cheap, very clean hotel. The room was cleaned spotlessly each day and new towels given - toiletries aren't provided. There is A/C -which you will need - a large fridge, TV and space for your clothes. Bed was OK. Our shower was a freestanding space in the corner of the bathroom - no bathtub and makes your bathroom into a bit of a wetroom. This was fine as it was so hot it dried out so quickly. Our room was on the ground floor, I think the rooms are all different and the nicer ones on the top floor. Location is great, a 15 minute walk in heat into Fira through lovely alleyways. Quiet location, no masses of tourists outside your window - just the donkeys going past every morning and evening which was lovely. The swimming pool is lovely, used it every day. In late afternoon it is in shade though from the building. I don't see a tennis court and a playground on site. The people who run this hotel were very friendly and kind. I would contact them and ask to be picked up from the airport as we were dropped off ten minutes away by a taxi driver. If you are on a budget like we were, then I would certainly recommend - we had a great time here once we realised it wasn't 4 star and we hadn’t paid 4 star prices!

Really badPosted Aug 26, 2013
Pros: Distance to center of town.
Cons: The staff can learn to be more accommodating and need at least one person who can speak English so they can understand international tourists.
Location: Fira town
Horrible! The staff barely understood what I was asking. They were never at the front desk even though the information says 24hr front desk service.

Just an average room in FiraPosted Jul 31, 2013
The location on map was not correct. The reception of the hotel doesn't look like one, more like a mini bar, and the receptionist was not there when we arrived so we kept looking for the entrance to it. He wasn't there when we wanted to check out neither, so we had to leave our key to a maid instead since we would miss our boat. It was clean but our shower was clogged. The water kept changing from scorching hot to icy cold and at some point it didn't run at all for a few minutes. We just needed it to sleep though and the location of it was perfect.

Can't recommend!!Posted Jun 4, 2013
Pros: It's located in Fari.
Cons: Breakfast was poor!
Location: Good but no view!
Rooms have no view at all. Pictures that make you think you are going to see the ocean from there, don't believe in them. Flyes were everywere in this hotel.

Great value for moneyPosted May 24, 2013
Pros: The shower

Location: Very close to centre of town
Very Friendly and helpful staff, close to centre of town and has the most amazing shower. Breakfast doesn't have a lot of selection but as it was so cheap it didn't matter

Gianna Villa in Santorini.Posted Jun 10, 2012
The villa is situated in Thyra with easy access from the bus station. The rooms are large and very clean. I really loved the swimming pool. There is a nice view of the see from there.
