We were lucky to get a spot at this wonderful place.. We got a ground floor room but it was a perfect little place with a very comfortable set up. And while everyone opts to stay in Oia, or Fira, this place has an equally good view at very reasonable rates. And true to their website, we indeed had breakfast...

We just returned from spending 3 nights at Smaro Studios. You never know what you're going to get after choosing a hotel on TripAdvisor, but we were not disappointed. This hotel is tucked into the hillside on the caldera side with AMAZING views! After visiting Oia one afternoon, we are SO glad we didn't stay there - way too many...

Stayed two nights at Smaro Studio in a regular apartment with my wife and 8 months old baby. We receive a wonderfull welcome and was able to leave our luggage at reception because we were to early for check-in. The room was perfect and a baby crib was waiting for our little baby (a special attention important for us). The...

My fiancé and I were so excited to visit Santorini and we were going crazy trying to find a room with one of the amazing views of the caldera that wouldn't completely destroy our budget. Finally we can across Smaro and we could not have been happier with our experience! When we arrived we were greeted at the front by...

Not sure how we got so lucky, but we ended up getting the very top room, so the view was SPECTACULAR. The breakfast was delicious and hearty and would be served on the porch outside your individual room, overlooking the water. We arrived late evening without our bags (they were lost in Athens), but the view in the morning made...

I had a wonderful time at the Smaro Studios. A little family run property and a fantastic location. To access you walk down a little path but not more then a couple of minutes. I kept stopping to take photos of the view. The studios are very neat and tidy. A little quirky but a stunning view. For breakfast just...

This place is wonderful. The sunset views, the location, the breakfast, the staff. Everything was great. It is right near the bars and restaurants in Firastefani and only a 15 minute walk from Fira. The room was very comfortable and a delicious breakfast was served by the manager to our private terrace every morning. My wife and I went here...

You don't need a car, becuase from Smaro to center of Thira is aprx. 10-15 min. by foot. And near is bus stop and for 1,80 euro you can go to Oia or...
