Perfect hotel for seeing santorini

Posted Jul 31, 2015
This hotel was located right in Fira with an excellent view and very friendly staff who go out of their way to help. The room is basic, but that's all that's needed as very little time is spent in the hotel.

Best value on the Caldera

Posted Jul 25, 2015
We truly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Kavalari. The staff was super friendly and helpful and you can't beat the location/view for the value. Our only small gripe would be the breakfast but it sounds like they are on their way to improving it in the near future.

hotel in posizione splendida con vista sulla caldera. camere ok ma un po' troppo umide. buona colazione resa ancor più piacevole dalla terrazza affacciata sul mare

Unbelievable.

Posted Jul 4, 2015
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Some of the flights of stairs were tough on older or less mobile guests, but that is due to geography and probably cannot be helped.
Location: The Naoussa Restaurant had the best food, service, and deal. The volcano at Nea Kameni was very interesting. Sunsets, atv's for beach excursions.
If you want the picture-postcard view of the Caldera, an wonderfully friendly and helpful staff, prime location to the town of Fira, and an awesome deal, this is your hotel. I had to pinch myself at breakfast on the balcony every morning just to be sure I wasn't dreaming. People from all over the world stopped at the upper gate of the Kavalari to take pictures of the view. Demetri & Eleni were very warm and knowledgeable offering directions, advice, and suggestions for excursions, restaurants, and transportation. the breakfast and cleaning staff could not be more helpful from carrying luggage, setting up impromptu parties on the terrace, and bringing our breakfast. All was really quite amazing.

The views and experience did not disappoint

Posted Jun 14, 2015
Pros: Location, room style, terraces, views. An enviable location with special character.
Location: Shops, eateries, local buses to take you to Oia, the cable car and donkey rides to the old port all close by.
What a wonderful experience to stay in these cave-like rooms with exceptionally stunning views right in the heart of Fira. The terraces were beautiful, the plunge pool refreshing and the staff extremely helpful. I only booked a standard room but was really happy. Wonder what an upgrade was like? The steps aren't easy but they are worth it.

Pros: The staff was great! Rooms are beautifully maintained, decorated and characteristic of Santornini dramatic mountain architecture.
Cons: Nothing!
Location: Great walking, easy bus connections everywhere. Not the most scenic bus terminal, but certainly no need to use cabs to get to towns and airports an
Stunning views, wonderful room - we were upgraded to an cave apt., Room 17, and would definitely request that room again. It's good to be on the inside of the guest gate to be away from the thrrongs of shopping tourists above. You don't need to go all the way to Oia to enjoy a sunset evening on the privacy of your own terrace, surrounded by vegetation and spectacular views.

Hotel location

Exceptionally good. Great view, gorgeous architecture, good price and centrally located. It can compete with other much more expensive hotels in the Island.

Great place; lots of steps!

Posted Sep 24, 2014 on Hotels
The welcome we had at Hotel Kavalari really made our stay in Santorini. From the beginning, Elena and Ioannus (don't know if I have their names correct) went out of their way to give us helpful information and make us feel at home. Had one of the rooms with a "cave" bathroom at the lowest level; it was clean and reasonably airy. Recommended a hiking map which enabled us to have a significantly different experience of the island than most tourists -- and we were so grateful. Excellent place; couldn't be more conveniently located.
