I just loved this hotel, the owner was there all the time to make sure we have everything we needed and the staff very plesant, always smiling and easy to communicate. The breakfast is delicious, we stayed for 4 nights and every morning we were served a diferent tasty and plaintful meal. The view is umbelivible, beyond compare, lots of tourist were coming close to the hotel to take pictures of the sunset which we enjoyed right from our balcony. I would love to go back to Santorini and I'll definetly choose this hotel, no question about it.

Amazing view, quiet and peaceful surroundingsPosted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
We loved our stay at Manos Small World and will definitely return in the future. The service here was great, from the effortless check-in to the thorough maid service. The room itself is simple and was more than enough space. The balcony area is shared but wasn't a problem at all, you have more than enough room to enjoy your view in your own personal space. It was great to have our room checked twice throughout the day, and the maid did a nice job making sure everything was clean and organized and new towels were present. The complimentary breakfast was quite nice, especially when you can eat at your own table in front of your room or inside your room rather than a community breakfast room. The breakfast changes from morning to morning so you don't have to be worried about getting tired of the food if you stay multiple days. Thanasis greeted us every morning and was also the gentleman that checked us in and out. He was always willing to give suggestions or help us with reservations like that for renting an ATV. He was our favorite and one of the people we remembered most from our trip. Location-wise it's situated out of the busy Fira, in Firastefani which is a lovely area if you want quiet and convenience. It was a still a short walk away from all the action and it still had the beautiful caldera views. Overall, we had a memorable stay, everything was absolutely great.

Amazing experiencePosted Apr 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
Manos is a beautiful boutique hotel with everything you could possibly ask for and more! Staff were outstanding, service was second to none and the location was perfect. Far enough away from the touristy area but easy to get to if needed. The Team at Manos go above and beyond and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts were beautiful every day, served to you when you are ready on the balcony, overlooking the most amazing view. Heaven on Earth! Would highly recommend.

WonderfulPosted Sep 24, 2012 on Hotels.com
Loved the Manos Small World! The owner helped arrange our taxi from the airport as well as all our excursions. So easy for us! The hotel is charming and has a great location, right underneath the main Firostefani Square. Close to cafes and shops and a 10-20 walk to Fira, depending on where in Fira you need to go. Breakfast was served on our balcony every morning and was really good. Always had clean towels and clean room. They checked on us to be sure all was good. The jacuzzi area is small, so if a pool is a must, MSW doesn't have one. We were so busy seeing the rest of the island and going to beaches, that we were fine without it. And we did have chairs to lie in the sun, even if not in a pool. Another benefit is the close location to the bus route to Oia. Would stay here again.

Great small hotel with amazing sea view!Posted Sep 16, 2012
Pros: Beautiful views, spacious rooms, breakfast, cleaninless and lovely terrace
Cons: Walking down the stairs
Location: Great location with amazing views of the sea! It's almost outside Thira but within walking distance to town.
The Manos Small World hotel has lovely spacious rooms with balcony and amazing sea view facing the volcano island. The owner Thanasis keeps it run like a clock work precision having room serviced and cleaned every day to a high standard and even towels changed if required twice a day. The lovely breakfast is served on the terrace. Each room has sea view. We liked this small hotel so much and the owner's hospitality that we didn't want to leave at the end of our stay. Thank you so much Thanasis! There are no words to describe how lovely this place is. I would highly recommend this hotel for couples but also friends. The only downside is that this hotel can't be seen from the main road and to access it you have to walk down the concrete stairs. However, the kind owner will offer his help and organise someone to carry the luggage to your room.

Nice hotelPosted Sep 11, 2012
Pros: the views
Cons: Walking the 100 stairs up & down the mountain to & from our room
Location: Not esay excess to your room, but none of the hotels in Santorini appeared to have easy excess, no beach or pool
Excellent hotel, Beautiful view, breakfast was excellent, AC worked well No Pool or Beach FYI, if you are not in good shape and healthy, Santorini is not the place to go,

PerfectPosted Jul 8, 2011
Manos Small World and its host Thanasis have to be one of the worlds best combinations. This hotel and its location are going to be hard to beat anywhere on Santorini especially at the price. My wife and i had four of the best nights ever here - the views are superb and if you can find a better way of spending an evening than drinking some local wine or beer and watch the sun set with some one you love - please tell me about it. Thanasis is a gentleman - a wonderful host. The breakfast each morning on the deck looking at the new cruise ships that have slipped in overnight is a great way to start the day. When you have finished either walk the picturesque path into the town of Fira (bet you take at least 50 photos on the way) or jump in a car and go down to the beach at Kamari where you can grab a light lunch from one of the many restaurants and cafes. Mid afternoon return back to Manos and dont be surprised if you are greated with an ice coffee, and ice-cream or some other treat as you take a quick dip in the spa. Unfortunatley we had to cut our trip short and return home due a death in the family - i could not have wished for anyone other than Thanasis to be there and help organise things for us. If you want a beautiful location, a great room, unbelievable views and a host to beat them all - please go stay here. If you want a pool, cant walk up and down 74 steps or want to be with loud party going people - stay away and leave it to us. We will be back.
