Small older hotel with gorgeous view of Caldera.
Posted Nov 16, 2015 on Hotels
Very tiny older hotel with shared terrace on the second floor and gorgeous view of Caldera. View is the main reason to stay in this hotel. It's clean, but the room is tiny. The biggest issue was the bathroom (now I know why it's photo not posted on the website): very small, poor lighting, shower was just a square shallow tub with soft curtain, hand held shower head, water was all over the floor every time and we had to ask for extra rugs to soak the water. Another problem was very bad Wi-Fi connection and the TV signal was almost nonexistent. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They make breakfast per order for each room. Please, note, it's almost the same selection every day. But breakfast at the hotel was very convenient since there is no coffee shop or bakery close by. Another positive, Casa Florina is on the top level of the village, so you don't need to clime the steps up and down to get there from the main road. It's located on one of highest points of Santorini, village of Imerovigli. Thus it's was extra windy and cooler than Fira or by the port. Imerovigli is in between Fira and Oia. Taxi cost: 20 Euro from the Airport and 25 Euro to the Sea port. You can get to Fira or Oia by bus. Bus stop is 10 minutes walk from the hotel and it runs every 30 minutes . Bus ride to Fira is about 15 minutes, 25 minutes to Oia. Cost 1.80 Euro each way. Imerovigli is a quiet village, but has a few shops and restaurants.
