I literally got back from my trip to Santorini last night and I must say my time at this hotel is nothing short of amazing. As soon as we got there, Christos gave us a very detailed verbal tour of the island using a map, upgraded our room, surprised us with a complimentary Santorini wine tasting at the hotel bar AND personally drove us to town! We were blown away. The staff are friendly and are willing to accommodate any and all requests to make your stay better. Location wise, it's only a 20-30 minute walk from the hotel to the town of Fira or a 5 minute drive, timed with a stopwatch - those saying that it takes ~40 minutes would've had to have walked ridiculously slow. I love that the hotel is not in town center as night life in the city extends to ~5am. It's also only 8 euros to taxi from the hotel to Fira; never had a problem getting a taxi despite there only being limited on the island.
One of the highlights of my trip was the complimentary breakfast. Bread, eggs, greek yogurt, crepes, bacon, veggies, fruit... it has everything you need to keep breakfast interesting every day. Their patio outside the building means that you can eat breakfast looking out at the caldera and soak up the beautiful views. Since the hotel is located literally right in the middle of the island, you have a great view of Akrotiri and Oia on either end of Santorini. Remember to bring home some Vinsanto (Santorini-exclusive dessert wine... absolutely delicious) before you leave!
