Excellent service. Wifi intermittent. Distance à pied du centre d'Oia raisonnable.

Staff were fantastic and helpful but unfortunately the lack of wifi reception in rooms as well as internet restrictions meant even when we had wifi, were unable to download anything because of it. This is important for travelers. The bathroom was at back of unit and had no ventilation and smelt horrible when we first entered our apartment. Showers were leaky and took a while to get hot and seemed to be bugs in sink holes somehow and would always get in room despite everything being closed. Good location close to oia.

Lovely relaxed hotel close to OiaPosted Jun 26, 2016
We stayed at Finikia Memories for 4 nights and recommend this beautiful hotel very highly! The rooms are delightful with cave showers all very tastefully decorated with a delightful pool and sea views, perfect for the sunsets! We must mention the excellent on site restaurant with amazing views and a delicious menu which we worked our way through! The breakfast was also really good and varied each day. Oia is only a short walk away (15 minutes) and although it's a busy road, we had no problems. We found Finikia a much more relaxed and affordable place to stay outside of the bustle of Oia. Buses stop right outside the hotel to take you to Fira in 20 minutes or elsewhere on the island. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful and lovely to us and we highly recommend staying here and would definitely return.

Nice and friendlyPosted Jun 5, 2016
Pros: clean, friendly and helpful staff, can view sunset from comfort of own room patio.
Location: walking distance to Oia, bus stop nearby, not much to do in the immediate vicinity as it's on the edge of town.
Santorini accommodation is helluva expensive. I was initially expecting 3/4-star service for the price we paid and was disappointed at that but I see now that it is actually rated at just 2 stars. So for that rating it was nice. We got a superior room. It was very spacious, but for the size furnishing was rather spartan. Wifi signal was too weak to be of any use, so going upstairs to the reception or restaurant are the only reliable options for wifi. Although the rooms were cleaned daily, harmless pill-bugs kept finding their way in, possibly related to our room being one of those largely underground (good for keeping cool in the hot summer). Breakfast was nice but the prepaid one is a little on the spartan side too. It is a set piece rather than buffet, with part of it changed daily. More options are available on order at extra cost. We found the provided set was sufficient, but your mileage may vary. Walking distance to Oia centre (<30min), but the road is busy and without sidewalk. I recommend walking carefully halfway and then turning up towards the desalination plant and continuing on the cliff path.

Nunca mais volto e não recomendo a ninguém.Posted May 26, 2016 on Hotels
Hotel simpático, bem localizado, boa vista e quarto confortável. Porém serviço lamentável. O chuveiro não funcionou. Hora água fervendo, hora água gelada. Solicitei que fosse verificado e a resposta foi, é assim mesmo, tem muita gente tomando banho ao mesmo tempo. Insisti e disseram que iriam verificar no dia seguinte. Disse que não adiantava pois era minha última noite. Disseram então que verificariam em 10 minutos. Estou esperando até agora. Solicitei se haveria possibilidade de postergar meu check out. Ficaram de me dar um retorno e nada. Quando chegou exatamente 12h estava terminando de fechar minhas malas e ja tinha as camareiras batendo na porta, mal humoradas, e a recepção ligando de 5 em 5 minutos.

Good value but has its caveatsPosted May 6, 2016 on Hotels
This place was great. It is about a mile away from Oia proper, but with the money I saved from staying in Oia I was able to rent a buggy for 3 days which more than made up for it. The hotel's restaurant is amazingly good and reasonably priced especially compared to Oia. I do have 2 complaints though first the room pictured in the website did not match the one I got. It was nice but not as nice as the one pictured when I picked the room. Complaint number 2 is NO INTERNET! Internet did not work for my entire stay (4 days) although I think it's an Oia thing because the wifi at the restaurants and cafés in Oia were always a hit and a lot of misses. The girls in the reception were amazing though, and served as my google being so knowledgeable on things to do. I would stay here again, but you definitely need to accept the fact that Internet does not work and that you need wheels to move around.

Disgusting Mold StenchPosted Oct 26, 2015
Where to begin...wow, this place was bad. This was the worst place we stayed on a 2-month backpacking trip (this includes hostels at a fraction of the price). The room had poor ventilation, resulting in an absolutely rancid smell from the moldy bathroom. The "cave room" was more like a dark, dank basement room with one tiny window. I have a mold allergy, so we asked for a refund and wanted to move to another hotel (as this was obviously a ventilation problem throughout the property) which the staff denied, despite my health and discomfort. We are a young couple who simply could not afford to eat the cost, so we were trapped there. They moved us to a smaller room that smelled slightly better. I never thought a hotel experience would actually make me cry, but this almost ruined our stay in Thira. The waiter just watched as a big dog tried to eat off my plate in the "fine dining" restaurant. I'm not kidding. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else. We are not picky and this is the first bad review we have ever left about a hotel. It baffles me that this place has a decent rating. Wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.

Lage an der Starße nach Oia die etwas Lärm bringen kann. Blich der Anlage Richtung Norden/ Ios. Über den nahen Wanderweg ist Oia klasse zu Fuß zu erreichen. Einfache aber sehr saubere Zimmer. Gepflegte kleine Hotel-Anlage mit kleinem Swimming-Pool zur Erfrischung. Super Service, leckeres Essen a la card, Frühstück eher wenig Auswahl. Würde das Hotel für einen Kurzurlaub auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen.
