                    3.2

                    Very disappointing rooms; decor was old and filty with ancient furniture from Ikea. Bathroom was moldy with shower curtains that seemed have been used for years. Pictures very decieving. Location was average; have to yank up and down some sleep stairs. Sea view from outside of room average; not 100% sunset view (the sunset is the reason to go to Oia). Blanket provided was 1 piece of wool cloth; again with a long history. Breakfast was awful; cold scrambled eggs and few slices of coldcuts / cheese. 1 type of cereal with no yogurt / fruits. Cold coffee. Under-staffed and cant seem to solve the numerous problems from all hotel clients (e.g. no hot water; change of rooms, no amenities provided..etc). Price is not reasonable either.

                    The room was ok, cave style and all and was spacious.

                    The service is pathetic. Reception closes at 6 in the evening. Breakfast was poor. There was no porter available even at 11 in the morning and I saw atleast 4 guests lugging their own bags. Terrible location by Oia standards and completely not worth it. I recommend Golden sunset villas which is way better.

                    1) the staff is very nice 2) it is at the centre of Oia, shops & restaurants just minutes walk 3) spacious room 4) delicious breakfast 4) wonderful view fr the place for breakfast

                    1) our view fr room is blocked by a house at the front 2) bathroom & toilet is too small 3) the room & facilities are old, not looking very much the same as the pic shown in website 4) No swimming pool! Only jacuzzi, but it needs repair, didn't work well.

                    The staff are nice and helpful and the view is good

                    The water will run into the sitting room when showering. The balcony is not "private", everyone else can use it and you can't see the sunset view from the "private" balcony, you need to go to another public terrance which is around 10 - 15 mintues walk from the hotel. We could have a better choice and have a real "private" balcony and sunset view with this level of money. The photos on website is a little bit of mislead.

                    The location is good, just two minutes walk to Oia sight seeing point. The view from the room is good. The reception is next to the bus stop, you don't waste time to search for it.

                    I'm a little bit worry about the security of the hotel, because the hotel is rounded by the village and easily be accessed. There was no air-conditioning at my room. The drain at the bathroom is always flooded with water, as the water is drained away very very slowly.

                    The best part of our stay was the hospitality of the staff. Especially Elena the receptionist. She was very professional and at the same time flexible when it comes to taking care of her guest. She is definitely as staff that you would want to keep.

                    The location of our room is very near the main street of Oia and offers views of the caldera. Santorini is a lovely island, unfortunately Residence Suites failed to live up to our expectations.

                    The "standard suite" we stayed in was overpriced and looking really tired, despite claims that it was recently renovated in 2010. Bathroom was tiny and mouldy. The view from the balcony was fantastic but was obstructed. The furniture on the balcony was old and had cobwebs forming. We had an ant trail outside our door 2 out of the 3 nights we were there (though staff were helpful in cleaning up). I see this surfacing in other reviews too, so it wasnt an issue unique to our stay. Overall, this hotel is 3-star standard. Quick post-trip research also shows that we could've gotten better options with the same amount we paid. Will suggest that management look into revising the pricing. Additional note to first timers who are visiting santorini: many hotels offer caldera views, but if its the ultimate romantic experience u're after, make sure u book somewhere w a sunset view.

                    The view over the sea is spectacular and the hotel is a little oasis of calm and tranquility where you feel you can truly relax. The rooms are a high standard and extremely comfortable. Sitting on the terrace in the evening was a full delight. The staff is an excellent host and has made this hotel a wonderful destination for anyone wishing to enjoy some truly rest and relaxation

                    3.2

                    This hotel is too expensive. It is not worthy. It was disappointing to pay that money and to find this low quality room. Too many dangerous stairs. The room was far away from the hotel. Photographs of the hotel have nothing to do with the reality. The jacuzzi was ugly and dirty. I felt cheated.

                    9.6

                    The hotel was very perfect in terms of the location. My room was huge, like a 2 bedroom flat even including a kitchen. The view from the balcony was fantastic, though you can't see the sunset from here. You can take a glass of wine, sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. The staff were very kind and helpful.

                    All the rooms are on the cliff. You have to go down many levels before get to the room (some stairs are very slippery ). There are staff to help you carry the luggages, but bare this in mind if you have loads.

                    The location -- if you stay in Santorini, you're wasting your time and money if you don't stay on the cliffside of Oia! It's also worth noting that Residence Suites has taken special care to keep the old traditional- style cave homes and added modern amenities to make them comfortable. Such a cool place!

                    Some may not like that there's no pool here - just small jacuzzis here and there (Oia isn't very conducive to pools, though some of the other hotels do have them).

                    The location, amazing views from the balcony. Not too many other tourist, so quiet and relaxing.

                    Not enough, pillows, warm bedding and cooking utensils, tea and coffee facilities.

                  • Couple
                    5.8

                    The view was amazing. Absolutely gorgeous. I can honestly say I've never stayed at a hotel with a more beautiful view from the room. The Honeymoon suite was beautiful as well.

                    Breakfast is 9euro per person (12.79USD) and only consisted of eggs, ham, orange juice, a dinner roll, marmalade, tomatoes, feta cheese, and coffee. The room we had at first had mold growing all over the bathroom wall. There was a switch for the water heater that had to be pressed 15min before getting into the shower or the water would be ~10c ( ~50 F). The small water heater only contained enough hot water to last for two and a half to three and a half minutes and auto shut off after the water was heated (the switch needed to be pressed to again to reactivate the heater). The advertised common pool and jacuzzi only operate during the summer months. They weren't even going to turn either on until April. The jacuzzi in the Honeymoon suite was turned on the night before we moved to that room because we complained about it being advertised. By then it had only heated the water to 25c (77F) in 24 hours. Apparently it has a poor heating element because in the next 4 hours it only made it to 26c (78.8F). I wasn't going to let my fiance not have a jacuzzi so I commenced boiling water in the percolator and dumping it in the jacuzzi. Took me almost an hour and a half but I got it to 40c (104F) and we used it finally. The advertised wifi access was unavailable and they failed to mention that on our check-in. They prefer you pay in cash since the hotels use the Best Western in the center of the city of Oia to process card transactions. It is quite a walk to get to the center to make the transaction.

                    A tremendously charming place, in an outstanding and different neighborhood of the world. The suite was more than OK with a lovely terrace featuring a magic view of the volcanic islands.We actually found it quite hard to leave. This is a really great hotel.
