We stayed two nights with our adult kids. Room was bit crampy. Need to drag all luggages half kilometre but hotel staff also help. Need to climb 20 steps also. Basic breakfast is provided. Views from roof top is breathtaking.
This is a wonderful hotel to make as your base while enjoying santorini. Fira is one of the largest towns on the island and the prices here are much more reasonable than nearby Oia. The Theoxenia has 9 lovely rooms (we stayed in room 9). Firstly the location is PERFECT - it has fantastic views of the caldera as is it just above the hustle and bustle of the main drag, which leads us to the surprise for us at least, it was whisper quiet! We were concerned when we arrived that it would be noisy given its super central location, not so. The balconies enjoyed a quiet buzz from the streets below and the rooms themselves are very very well noise controlled. We left our window open one night and heard nearby music, closed the window and silence once again.the staff are crazy friendly and always have a smile on their face ready to help, we organised a boat tour of the island which was also amazing and they gave us great dinner and cocktail recommendation. The rooms themselves are clean, spacious and well maintained. The fact that there are only 9 rooms also makes this hotel super quiet and kinda feels like you have the whole place to yourself. The bathroom does have a minor leaking problem, but it was not a major issue by any stretch. The breakfasts were also excellent, and served on our balcony every morning at a time most convenient for us (you let the front desk know the night before) The location, friendly staff, views, and general feel of the hotel mean we would definitely stay here on our next trip to santorini. Tip, top floor rooms have nicest balconies, room 9 is the best (then room 8). The sister hotel has a pool, but we never visited... too much else to do!
The photo with the pool is not from Theoxenia Hotel but from the neighbor hotel 3 min walking. As guest we can use the pool and parking from the hotel and have 10% discount in the spa treatments. The Spa is really great and the price are normal. We had a room to the street, it was not loud at all and we had breakfast at the terrace with an amazing view to the caldera. George was really friendly, breakfast is good.
This place has an amazing location in the middle of it all. If you want to be in easy walking distance of everything choose this hotel. You can't beat the value of this compared to other hotels. The rooftop is really nice and has a great view. We opted for the street view and don't mind the noise. Great for people watching. The staff here is lovely! Efi was so kind and we had a great time talking to her and learning about Greece. She is amazing! Overall I would recommend this to everyone for a good cost and value. If you want luxury you have to pay way more in santorini. This is a perfect value combo!
Room was fairly spacious, and the breakfast was good. Overall hotel is decent. There seems to be a drainage problem in the bathroom, though it is not severe. View of the caldera from the balcony was fascinating, though the cost of the upgrade seemed a little too much. Overall, satisified with the stay.
We loved the Theoxenia. There were 7 of us in total . Myself and my 2 daughters 8 and 9 and my sister and her family with 2 small children also. From the minute we arrived We were greeted warmly and with kindness. Our luggage was taken up the stairs for us and Effie the receptionist gave us every bit of info about what to do and where to go in Santorini all marked on a map . She was utterly delightful! Our room was on the street side which could have been an issue but the double glazed doors meant we slept peacefully. There is a pool at the sister hotel a few minutes walk but I would say not really appropriate for children so the only thing lacking was that. Breakfast on the communal deck with that unbeatable caldera view was amazing ,in fact a highlight of our stay in Greece . We loved being able to walk straight out the door onto the shopping streets and everything was so close . Thank you to everyone atTheoxenia that made our stay wonderful .
This hotel is amazing and right in the centre of town. It is quite a walk uphill from the road but that did not bother us. Checkin was friendly and we were given fantastic information about the Island, sights to see and places to eat. There are only 9 rooms so everyone gets personalised service and staff were always happy to answer any of our questions. Our room was spacious with a large bathroom. Although it only had a small balcony overlooking the street below, we were able to easily access the roof terrace which was a perfect pace to watch the sunset with a bottle of wine. Even though it was close to restaurants and bars and the streets, once the shutters were closed, noise was not an issue. There is no pool however the sister hotel just a short walk away has a lovely pool with poolside bar. Breakfast served on a tray to our room was delightful. A beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting
We recently stayed at Theoxenia hotel and had the pleasure to be meet by two wonderful staff members. George & Effie who helped us with all of our needs and were like our own private tour guides. From great recommendations of things to on the island to helping us out with all of our traveling needs. Nothing was too much bother. Great location, delicious breakfast on the balcony, and very clean hotel.
Just a great location, bang in the centre of town. What made it a particularly delightful stay was the staff (including George) who were wonderful with the kids and with us! (a full 30 min orientation of the island). Rooms were great - and the breakfast on the terrace balcony just lovely!
First thing you should know about the Theoxenia Boutique Hotel is that you cannot get there by vehicle. It is a very short walk, but don't be alarmed when the bellman greets you at the street corner and runs uphill with your luggage. The hotel has lots of steps so be prepared. There are only a few rooms in the hotel and they all appeared lovely. We were on the terrace overlooking the water. It is a shared terrace, but it is SO WORTH IT. The staff is very friendly and will answer any of your questions and offer helpful suggestions on local eateries. Be sure to catch a sunrise or sunset from the balcony. It was way better at the hotel than it was at some of the surrounding restaurants. Familiarize yourself with where the hotel is... look for the restaurants around the entrance. It is quite easy to get lost in the streets surrounding it. But everyone is extremely friendly and can help you if you get turned around.
