Before booking Irini's Villa I read the reviews through Travel Advisor and saw some pictures of the hotel . I thought it looked nice and booked through Expedia. 1) The pictures that are on Expedia's website are totally inaccurate. That is a completely different hotel. 2) The room that I stayed at was very very tiny. My fiancee was barely able to fit in the studio; It was a duplex studio and the bedroom was up some small stairs and layed on a wooden plank on the floor. We could literally strench out our hands and reach both sides of the bedroom walls. The bathroom was a small cement room with the toilet and shower together--meaning that there was no shower curtain when you took a shower the toilet would get soaked since the shower head was right next to it. We could barely roll in our luggage through the front door, yes it was that small. 3) As, stated in a another person's past review you have to carry your own bags to your room and the stairs in Santorini are not so easy to climb in the heat. 4) Most of the photos I found online were of the reception area, lobby and the Caldera view. The room I stayed at was not displayed in any photo gallery and now I know why. The only good thing I can say is there was air conditioning, hot water and the women working the front desk was nice.
I was very disappointed with the villa. Upon return I reviewed the reviews to see if I had misunderstoond anything. Most of the reviews are based on the view...Yes, the view is beautiful..You are in Santorini!! I would have liked to have seem more reviews based on the hotel itself.
