Ira Hotel & Spa

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It is located 15 minutes walk from Fira, center of Santorini. View from the room is excellent and the staff are well trained and professional. Breakfast is below average and the restaurant at the hotel has been closed.

By far our best experience at ANY hotel EVER! The hotel manager Anthony, went out of his way to make our stay perfect! He even gave us a ride to a restaurant because our taxi driver bailed! He went above and beyond!

Beautiful boutique hotel! Maria is awesome. Free breakfast was okay. Gorgeous views. I would recommend

Location is just outside of Firastefani so its close to amenities (15 minute walk to Fira) but removed from the noise and congestion. Staff was very helpful, friendly and attentive. Breakfast buffet was good with a decent selection. Room and pool have a great view of the Caldera (our room opened out to the pool). Room was updated, clean and comfortable

The room we stayed in may be our favorite ever, and we travel 5-7 times per year. The staff was fantastic and helped with everything - renting an ATV, arranging taxis, etc. The location is perfect - super close to Fira, which we like better than Oia - and the view from the hotel is one of the best on the island.

Lovely place to stay and very helpful and friendly staff.

Staff was absolutely helpful and friendly. Adele was extremely knowledgeable in activities to do and places surrounding hotel. She was lovely as was room service staff. Room was clean, well-kept, very quaint.

The views from our oceanfront room was amazzzing. We went to oia for sunset one of the days, the sunset view from our hotel room was even better ! The staff were very helpful, Maria helped a lot. All the restaurant staff were very nice. The maid service was wonderful, they cleaned the room so well Cons- The pool was very disappointing. It was foggy with green algae so we couldnt swim in it. We booked the hotel for the pool with the view so was disappointed that we couldnt use it. The hotel staff should clean it and make it sparkling clear as other hotel pools are. Overall the hotel would have been perfect if the pool was cleaned. Other than that, everything is great!

The place is a bit overpriced but so is every place in Santorini. Yes, the view is fantastic. The bed was a bit too hard for my taste. It was a shame not having anyone at the bar...i would have loved having a few drinks with that amazing view. Nice staff and awesome breakfast

Our room was at pool level; so always sunbathers outside our room; overall experience still excellent; excellent staff

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ira hotel. The location is perfect for exploring the entire island, and the view from the pool is magnificent! I would definitely recommend to anyone. The one negative is that one trying to rent ATVs, one staff member tried to pull one over on us.
