What's the best way to watch a sunset in Fira?

Go to Naoussa, but book a table early to get the front row seats! Or go to the nearby village of Oia, but head there early, around 6pm, and stake your claim around the castle to get the most stunning views of the cliff side domed dwellings Santorini is so famous for, and for a stunning view of the sun dipping into the ocean along the horizon.

  • the room was clean, spacious & very nicely furnished - no air conditioning but there is a fan in case it's hot; the hotel was only couple minutes walk to the main road at Fira town; breakfast personally prepared by Thomas, the house-owner, every morning - though it take some time - was always one of the highlights each day; Thomas' kind suggestions & advice on our travel plan every morning; the lovely breakfast place on rooftop with the caldera view.

  • The amazing views, the friendly and helpful staff, and breakfast by the infinity pool every morning (at our request)! There were limited sunbeds, but as it is a boutique hotel with a small number of guests I always got a sunbed! It is also centrally located in Fira, but once inside the hotel, we felt like we were worlds away from the tourist crowd.

  • This is a small family run hotel in Fira. It doesn't have caldera views but it does have them over the east side of the island. It's located a bit out of town up a hill which makes for a tiring walk but it's ok. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made you feel very welcome. The rooms are around the pool area which has a nice atmosphere. A good breakfast is taken in a cave room under the main hotel. That was fun.

  • Great location: close to the bus station and Fira. Amazing staff: Maria and her daughter were so helpful, they gave us good tips on how to walk along the coast to see the most of the Fira and close by villages, also informing us about great restaurants with a view. In general we felt like we were home, not in a hotel.

  • If you want a hotel with a view you can't get any better! The location is fantastic in the middle of Fira and the room (number 10) was spacious and the bathroom had a cave shape with huge shower. Staff was nice and helpful

  • It ticked all our boxes: we wanted a hotel with a view of the caldera, a pool, near the Fira bus station and easy access by taxi. Location is better than excellent, just in front of the Orthodox Cathedral. The view is amazing, go for a top floor room for an absolutely stunning view of the caldera; we also had a good bathroom (with full bath) and a spacious enclosed balcony. Nice pool with plenty of loungers - and a view! Staff were all delightful. Breakfast was large (eggs and bacon every day) albeit a bit samey.
