Everything! I absolutely recommend this place to anyone. We have been travelling Europe for 2 months now and have stayed at everything from a below 1 star hostel to a five star hotel and Villa Rose beats them all! Maria goes above and beyond to make your experience the best one possible. None. If your choosing between here and somewhere else in Santorini - choose villa rose!
Maria, out host, is the best host we've had. It's just a 5 minute walk from most things in Fira.
Small but quite clearn and has everything you need inside None
Best place we have stayed in Europe! Maria the host was fantastic, made us feel very welcome and went above and beyond as a host. The rooms are fairly spacious, very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended, great value for money. Thank you Maria for making our stay so enjoyable.
The service from Maria & Nikolos keeps you blindfolded! They are amazing! Catching sleep for just a couple of hours a day to keep receiving the guests and bidding them a farewell from the air/sea ports as a voluntary service, they attend to every call with the same care! Mr Nikolos, one of the owners, defends, "every 10 euros earned should make a way partly back to the well being of the hotel and their guests" and adds that he enjoys it. This is apparent if you encounter the hosts yourself. The rooms are kept 'spotlessly' clean, a few edibles replenished each day and every call attended to, patiently. I would rate a 9 on 10! This is not something I didn't like - I only don't want the guests to choose this property with expectations and later get dejected due to this reason: the property isnt located on a sea-facing edge of the island. And if it did, I am afraid if I could ever afford to stay at this place! And am happy it's so reachable to many like me! It's neverthless quite centrally located yet secluded from the tourist buzz. If you arrive here at night, please wait till the next day break before you give up!
Great location! So close to everything..Our view was fantastic! and Paul was very friendly and helpful. It was great to have a pool right there that we could relax beside. Had the most amazing time and would not hesitate to stay there again.
The view was amazing (in our room, at the pool, everywhere!) we spent 2 full days at the pool, it was so relaxing and the pool bar girl made the best mojitos! It was quiet at our hotel, meanwhile if you wanted anything, it is a few minute walk to Fira town where you can get food, ice cream,coffee, etc. we wished there was wifi in the rooms
We enjoyed the location , and the pool great views also . unfortunatley the air conditioning did not work well at all and the bathrooms were very out of date , the linen was old and needed an update , the breakfast was very very basic
Perfect combination of adventure and relaxation... very impressed and pleased.
This is a beautiful cliff side hotel. Once you actually get there, it's amazing. Trying to navigate there is literally impossible, although google maps will insist you can drive onto the pedestrian walk way to get there. We drove around for quite some time, then called the hotel. They were nice, but basically just told us to park and ask someone (I didn't appreciate that part of it!). It is a relatively short walk once you park (pretty much anywhere in Fira is a short walk)
This hotel was very clean and comfortable, with a beautiful view of the caldera. Staff was very accomodating, with an early check in. Pool area was clean and very nice. Overall very happy with this hotel.
Staff, location and room.
Spectacular views, and most of the staff is extremely friendly and goes above and beyond. I think our stay would have been A+ if we didn't experience a hiccup part of the way through, which wasn't handled ideally. Not the end of the world but did put a damper on the idealic experience. If you're a super easy going traveler and nothing will phase you, this will be a fairy tale stay for you. If you like things a certain way or have a high bar, perhaps consider a different spot. But don't worry too much, in Santorini you can't really go wrong! :D
Friendliness of the hotel staff, and cleaness. Nice breakfast
5 minutes far from centre of Fira,nice decoration!staff was very friendly and helpfull!
The staff and owners were very helpful and did all they could to ensure our stay was pl;easant
The Villas were family run and for the money we paid I thought it was excellent value. I little way out of main town but within walking distance of about 10 minutes. If you have a moped or quad bike its with 3 minutes Not the hotel only real bug bear was the building site that was going on next door. No mention of this on your site or from the villa owner. Still it was good value for money as the owners made us most welcome.
The owner who was very helpful and pleasant. The location was peaceful but convenient and close to the caldera. The room was spotless and well appointed.
everything is perfect it is a little far from the bus station, but it is not far from the fira city center
great service, friendly people, felt at home
lovely place to stay Not easy to find the villas in the frist time
the room is so so so beautiful and the host is quite kind person. the hotel is located in a very quiet place but just 15 minutes walk to Fira city center. it will be so wonderful to live in this hotel.
This was a great small hotel, just outside of Fira (less than 5 minute walk). Location turned out to be great because it was really easy to get in and out of, quiet, easy parking (get an ATV!), but super easy walk into Fira. It was also really easy to get to other locations around the island vs. some of the 'in-town' hotels. It also has a beautiful view of the Caldera and sunset. The staff was amazingly helpful with everything, including helping us coordinate with lost baggage and directing us to good places to get clothes in the interim. The pool was very nice to relax and staff was quick with towels and drinks. The only downside is that the shower was a little small and the Wifi was could be a little slow at times. The hotel does not have the same type of view as the hotels on the cliffs in Fira or Oia, but for the price, ease of access and other positives; it is well worth the value and very relaxing.
Champagne buffet breakfast, the free transfers from port and airport, the hotel swimming pool and proximity to the town of Fira (walking distance). The rooms are not well maintained for a 5* hotel and half of the rooms with 'volcano views' are actually facing the main road. Those rooms facing the other side may be better but they have a narrow staircase, without a bannister, leading up to the gallery/bedroom which was not practical. The biggest disappontment was the number of iunexplainable flys in the rooms. We changed rooms 3 times but just could not get away from them - not something one would expect to find in this level of hotel.
everything, esp wi fi in the room. nice. helpful, friendly staff, short walk from town center and bust stop for tours. it was good overall. the fact that there are no screens and if you dare open windows or doors for fresh air you will have a room full of flies because of the intense heat. but the air conditioner works just fine.
Almost everyone on the Hotel staff is very friendly and kind. The breakfast is good and the pool is excelent. The Hotel location, although not on the beach, is very central, and that allows one to reach every beach of the island in about 20 minutes by car. The breakfast is good, but could be improved considering the price one pays to stay there.
people are very friendly
The staff were very good,the food was wonderfull and we thought very good value,our room was great and the location excellent.
The facility is beautiful Service was good. Hotel was quiet, pool was like out of a magazine. We would come back to this hotel. Would be nice to be able to have coffee earlier than 7:00a.m.
Everything was great. The room had an excelent view and we it felted like home.The pool was great and the staff was very nice.The organization and the display of the hotel was excelent, perfect for a nice and relaxation vacacions. Needs more variety on breakfast
The food was excellent, it was on par with a five star hotel. The swimming pool is beautiful, very big and clean. I would not rate this hotel five star. The rooms are basic and the staff aren't very helpful (even though they do try to be but don't know how to be). Seems to me that it is considered to be a hotel only for tourists so they tend to get away with a lot.
The staff made our trip memorable. They were all excellent.
Nice view. Good location. Nice and helpful staff.
The hotel staff were very friendly. They were very accomodating. Amazing view.. best location and view you can get in Fira, Santorini. no
The view is perfect The swimming pool is closed, can not be used, and internet is not accessable in the room. the room is small
The island is extremely beautiful and the hotel looks well in the public areas, but the rooms are spatios but quite basic in terms of interior and bathroom; so I think it was overpriced. There were little ants in my room which was not very nice.
Closeness and access to town centre. Pool was not heated enough - too cold
Clean, nice view, nice people, nice facilities ... my family loves Santorini Palace!
The location was excellent. The staff very helpful and friendly.
Very good location, near downtown and restaurants. The air conditioner made a lot of noise during our stay. The secondary entrance could have more light during the night.
The staff was gently,especially the reception
The location of the hotel is terrific. The staff delightful. The swimming pool is great....(the aera around the pool needs new material) The room are small and poorely furnished. The beds are hard.The gym closes too early.
Walking along the side streets, easy access to hotel, very private place for couples to be alone and explore. At breakfast time the hot break fast food was not very hot, being left out and not in baymarie. A toastr for bread would have been good
Great position, very good swimming pool/terrace and interesting layout for the rooms. Superb views from our balcony The rooms are not well sound-proofed. Ours had a communicating door to the next room (which was locked) but we could hear everything going on in the room.
it was very nice no
Fantastic location on edge of the caldera, friendly hosts, easy walk into Fira.
the room is so nice with pool in front and view. The qwner also very kind and take care us so special.
The beautiful view over the caldera was absolutely incredible. The staff were all very helpful and just generally wonderful!
The view from my hotel room was fantastic. All the accommodations and amenities were fabulous and the staff was excellent. It was absolutely the highlight of my trip to Greece.
The staff at Ira were kind and helpful in every way. They provided transfers, restaurant recommendations, general advice and a cheerful presence at all times.
Hard to beat for the price point. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Highlights: 1) The staff: Never saw anyone at the hotel who WASN'T smiling. They went above and beyond to provide relevant and useful advice, arrange any excursions, and improve the stay. 2) The facilities: The common areas were beautiful, the room was spacious and comfortable. 3) The convenient location: The hotel is located across from a couple shops (including a grocery store) and just down the street from the nightlife and tourist attractions- without being so close that you have to hear the bass of the clubs all night (unless you are into that!) Santorini is renowned for its panoramic views of the beach- this location does not provide that. Also, the rooms are not sound proof so if you are a light sleeper it could be an issue.
The location of the hotel was close to everything, the bus stop, shops. They were also very accommodating to our needs, and provided a free pick up and drop off to airport.
the staff the rooms and very close to bus station and town. Under 2 euro you can travel anywhere on the buses
Friendly staff, excellent transfers
good location, practical for short stays, convenient to well-organized bus terminal Small apartments, no microwave in kitchen
We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel - the owner was amazing - very willing to help and easygoing. The rooms varied so make sure that you know what you're booking - the one we ended up in was great, very quiet, clean and a good size with a great balcony. It's not luxury but it's a good choice if you're on a budget but don't want to negotiate on quality. Not all the rooms are the same quality so make sure you ask when you book that you are getting the one you want (balcony etc)
The location is right in the city center of Fira and next to carrefour. The free airport transfer really helped alot. The distance to the city center and Fira's caldera is walking distance. The free transfer from and to airport fails the promise and promontion as i only got transfer from airport to hotel not vice versa. They said the driver was not in the day i left santorini on tuesday morning at 11am....c'on....anyway, everything was nearly perfect.
The room we had included a deck and kitchenette which was nice. The bathroom appeared to have been recently redone with a nice shower, etc.
if you like peace and quiet don't go here. Our room was right next to reception. Too noisy. Location wise excellent.
The location was great, metros away from thira town. It was great that the hotel staff were waiting for us at the arrival port, and also gave us a lift to the port at the time of returning home. The bedrooms are quite good, the only inconvenient is that there was no wardrobe in the bedrooms. The toilet is really small, no enough place to have a confortable shower. Irene, the lady at the reception was of great help when deciding what to visit within the island. The toilet was far too small and it is forbidden to through any toilet paper into the toilet. Also, there was no wardrobe in the bedrooms,
good location, staff was friendly noisy (from the other Loizos appartments)
The rooms, views, facilities were fabulous.A lovely location and hotel perfect for honeymooners... Would highly recommend to friends and family..perfect location away from the crowds and just a short distance from Fira. No
Loved the view, location Bathroom needed ventilation/exhaust fan
The view, location and buffet breakfast
The location was good, the room was clean and adequate in size. The hotel is in 2 parts (not mentioned on web site). The part we stayed on did not have access to the 3 pools and restaurants unless we crossed a busy main road so we felt isolated. Not enough loungers for all the guests, especially annoying when they are empty but just draped in towels and the staff tell you there is nothing they can do! Also hotel has countless steps to pools and no lift!
outstanding view, atmosphere the staff behaviour
Fabulous 2 bedroom villa perched high up on edge of cliff. Magnificent view. Private pool and terrace where breakfast is served. Great personalized service. Nothing
Location and scenery The pool water is far to cold for a resort; Do the staff not ask why there are a dozen people around a pool on a warm day and nobody is swimming?
The view is amazing. The restaurant is great, and the staff were wonderful. Bed was a little uncomfortable, and there was nothing within walking distance.
The view from the hotel is amazing! The location of the hotel, close to Fira but not in Fira is ideal for those seeking a peaceful vacation. The free hotel shuttle bus to Fira is also a plus. Fantastic breakfast buffet. The bed was unusually hard and very uncomfortable. The A/C needed to be replaced. The bathroom needs to be updated.
Views and food were great. Staff was not friendly or helpful, and the rooms were not that clean.
Gorgeous views, stunning hotel.. the staff were not very friendly, food was terrible and i love greek food but there cuisine was very western without the knowledge so very disappointed with the overall service off the staff and food!
Very reminiscent of Mamma Mia. The style is exactly what you'd expect of Santorini. The staff are very nice and helpful. I only had a dinner and breakfast so I'll reserve my comments on the food because I may not have experienced all the hotel has to offer. The room was so nice. My only complaint is not with the hotel but with some obnoxious travelers that seemed to enjoy themselves a little too loudly. The food but I didn't have much of it to know what might ve been better.
The location (2 mins walk from the main square in Fira) was great! The room was basic but cosy and had a nice feel to it. The staff was lovely! Also the free wi-fi was a nice thing, even 4* hotels in Greece don't always provide this. At the price we got it for it was an absolute bargain.
Wonderful hotel staff. Great location...lovely jacuzzi. Would definately stay here again.
very friendly staff, always smiling and very happy to help when needed :)
In Summer Time Hotel I like the most the helpfull staff, the modern decoration of the room, the clleanliness of the room and its location clode to all things needed like bus sto, supermarket, taxi station, night clubs, restaurants, fast food, travel angencies and all these a capital offers. I surely recommend this hotel either for family vations or for friends vacations.
Location is good. Good value for money Noise into the room from other parts of the house
The room was clean, had everything we needed, and the staff was very helpful; they even gave us a ride to the airport.
The location was ok, very close to centre of Fira. The wardrobe stank, the toilet seat was broken, reception was closed from 1400 to 1700 (without prior notice - we had to wait 2h30 on the day of arrival). Staff was friendly but not hardworking.
The staff was AWESOME! Very helpful and sweet. We had a 6 month old baby with us and we felt absolutely comfortable here. The room was lovely. Not luxurious, but perfectly simple. The bathroom was a little cramped, but it didn't bother us too much!
Personell was great, very helpful. My 1:30am arrival was no problem even though the reception was closed.
Villa Soula in Santorini was a good choice mainly because of its central position in Fira. It is just a couple of minutes walk from the centre. The rooms were quite spacious and had good furniture and facilities. Good breakfast as well. Something that I thought could be introduced is a 24 hour front desk.
The cleaning lady did not speak any English, (and she ran the hotel most of the day) but she was wonderful, helpful and polite. They charge you for expenses you do not make. There are several other hotels nearby that are better and cheaper. Look around!
The building was beautiful, we had a huge terrace with a view, and a table and chairs. There was a swimmingpool ( a bit hidden though). The room was nice, with air conditioning ( very useful there!!).The neighbourhood was very quiet. The bathroom was a bit small to be confortable.
The terrace- aerated,big enough,with one marble table. We didn't fiind glasses in our room!!!! I drank water from the tooth-brushes-glass!!!!! And for my husband,I cut a plastic bottle!!!! The bath-room so small,when I used the w.c,was possible only with my feet in bathtub...and my head.....in the sink...
Clean room. Staff very friendly and helpful. English well spoken. Nice pool. Good A/C. Close to main tourist area, just a 3 minute walk. Off the main road, so no car noise. Bathroom very small. Toilet almost in shower.
The hotel was okay but you need to make sure they won't transfer you. They transferred me to what they said was their family's hotel on my third night because they had overbooked. One of the male proprietors tried to enter my room during the afternoon, and the family walked by my window a lot. The room overlooked local homes and was less comfortable. Yet the third night was at the same rate as the third.
The beauty of both the room (including its balcony) and the lobby and breakfast area. I liked everything.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was great.
We loved this hotel. I was worried a bit that it would be a typical business hotel (based on pictures from internet) but it has been recently renovated and it was great. It is totally beautiful butique hotel, in a great location to all the bars, clubs, restaurants, bus station (so we could easily reach all locations and we don't like to walk). We loved it and would stay there again. There was nothing that we did not like about this hotel. Staff was great both at reception, bars, pools and otherwise. The hotel was quite but very close to all the action. Just perfect. So the best of both worlds. We were a group of girls and we really enjoyed it. Drinks & food at the hotel are also delicious. It is a 5 star hotel.
Excellent, convenient location with fitness center... We arrived just days before the hotel was closing for the season and that's exactly how it felt--like it was closing down.
Staff was very helpful in providing information about local attractions and transportation. Conveniently located in Fira and was within very easy walking distance to the bus station. Breakfast provided a good selection and varied daily.
THe location. The staff was rude and the floor in our room was dirty.
Good location, staff were friendly, rooms were lovely and clean.
very good location and rooms are good and clean. friendly staff
