        Villa Ilias was the perfect spot for our stay on Santorini. It was right on target for our budget. The owners were friendly and helpful. The views were amazing. The rooms were comfortable. The daily breakfast was great. What we like most was the location. It really is only 15 min walk along a beautiful cobble stone path to busier Fira. The walk weaves among the white walled homes and hotels clinging to the cliffs. Along the way are various shops and resturants. The hotel is also directly on the path to Oia. That walk is longer, almost 2.5 hours and is a great hike with stunning views. Villa Ilias is a small, boutique type of hotel. If you are looking for a waiter to bring you a drink poolside, this is not the hotel for you. If, however, you want to buy your own bottle of wine, chill it in the fridge in your room and pour it yourself while sitting poolside, this is where you want to be.

        Slightly dated decor. Although the rooms were well clean kept, they do feel a bit dated. A more modern paint color would add a touch of sophistication. I grew very frustrated with the shutter-like window coverings, esp the one on the window in the door. It did not latch securely and therefore rattled, banged and impeded the door every time it was opened or shut. You quickly had to learn the system in order to close the door without the shutter causing a problem.

        The sea view is astonishing (from room, terasse and pool) and its location close to main center of area.

        We loved out stay in Villa Illias! Our hosts were fantastic and very welcoming. The location was perfect as it was close enough to walk into Thira without being too noisy. The view from our apartment (room 12) was beautiful ( i believed it trumped even the views from Oia!) Breakfast was also great each morning. I will be sure to recommend friends to stay here!

        Awesome view Cave rooms/ apartments are spacious which also have a veranda area just outside the room Run by helpful and warm people Location is great if you staying at Firostefani

        Standard rooms are pretty small. Their balcony rooms are bigger. Luckily we were able to get an upgrade to a cave apt at a nominal charge. Rooms are more akin to basic living. Beds squeak and lighting in the room not all that bright. But the location and staff outscore any negatives!

        Good location and nice views. Expensive, like everything in Santorini, but at least this one was not one of the overpriced hotels

        The owners where husband and wife and they were the ones at reception meaning you where gaurenteed the best customer service. We always had friendly staff, the owners where very helpful giving is exact directions for attractions and how to get their aswell as booking tours for us. We where given a orientation upon arrival, tour of the hotel/facilities, a map of the city, map of santorini pointing out main attractions and a bus timetable. This made us feel very welcomed and made it easier to get around and see things during our stay. Highly recommend it such lovely owners! Breakfast was yummy homemade dishes such as pie and quiche and homemade bread was my favourite!

        It was a 15min walk into centre of town however it was a straight cobble road no chance of getting lost. The amazing view from hotel and view on the walk info town definitely made up for it!

        The owners and managers of the hotel were so welcoming,friendly and accommodating. We're able to answer all our questions and were very helpful with suggestions in and around Firostefani. You felt safe and the building seemed very secure.

        Villa Ilias was a perfect choice for our stay on Santorini. The owners were delightful and extremely helpful. The breakfast was delicious with different homemade items each of the 3 mornings we were there plus great staples. The location was ideal - not in the hustle-bustle of Fira but not too far to make it a pleasant walk to the restaurants or shops. I know that there are more expensive places to stay in the area but no one could have had a better view than we did from the poolside deck or one of the front room balconies. We stayed in a room with a rear view of the sea on the other side of the island and it was charming and delightful. We loved the breakfast area and you could easily take your breakfast to the pool area if you wanted a seaside view. Bed was actually a queen size bed - not 2 twins pushed together. We liked it all!

        Can't think of anything!

        I liked everything: the location in Firostefani (walking distance to the center), the view (amazing!) , the breakfast (delicious!), the price we paid for having one of the best views of the Caldera, with pool and relaxing private terrace. In addition they have free internet, and they give you extra towels for the pool and also for the volcano thermal waters tour. And last, but not least, the owners, so kind and helpful, they really make you feel at home. No words could describe this.

        I liked almost everything, but just to mention something, the floor in the pool area was slippery and I fell down (however, they had a sign warning about this).

        Absolutely stunning location, simply amazing views, close to a minimart and a couple of good restaurants, only a 10 minute walk to town. Extremely friendly helpful staff, good breakfast, we loved it there!

        As with any hotel room on Santorini, it was a little small and the bathroom cramped, but still very clean, we had a safe, TV/DVD, fridge and even a small cook top.

        the view was fantastic. Quiet surroundings with beauty. Amazing sunsets. Very nice breakfast. Very helpful owners/managers and very accommodating. Beds are very comfy especially the pillows.

        Shower is restrictive with big step to get into bathtub with the shower. Bathroom quite small.

        The view from our room was amazing. We paid for a standard room and ended up on the top floor with a priceless view. My friend and I were beyond impressed with the service of the staff. They were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this Villa to anyone visiting Firostefani
