It is not actually a hotel. Small and very uncomfortable bathroom. Old installations... Good point is the location near Perissa beach, but very far from the Caldera and main cities. Have to rent a vehicle to enjoy all aspects of the island or else one can be stuck in that part of Santorini.

Each room has a balcony & fridge although the rooms are a bit tight for room (especially the bathroom). But for the price we were happy with what we got. The owners are particularly friendly and Vasili goes out of... More
