Stunning location with superb views (except for the old quarry building to the South). Lovely room and a good size. Bear in mind that this hotel comprises a selection of old buildings which made a former monastery. Some of the bathroom fittings are in need of replacement but everything worked properly. There are, however few public areas in the hotel where one would want to spend much time but the delights of Fira are a very short walk.
Staff utterly delightful and service was excellent.
I normally don't write reviews on hotels, but our stay the Mill Houses was one of the memorable trips we've taken as a family. As you start walking down the steps to the hotel, you are rewarded with one of the most incredible views you've ever seen. It's sort of out of a dream.
The hotel staff is one of the most friendly group of people I've ever had the pleasure of interacting with. They went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great stay. They arranged a few day trips for us which were wonderful.
The rooms are extremely quaint. It doesn't really matter that much since you'll want to spend every waking moment outside savoring the view.
The location is perfect, IMHO. Firostefani is about a 15 minute walk from Fira, the largest city on Santorini. It's where the cruise boat passengers get dropped off. The good news is that most of them won't venture outside of Fira, so the crowds are minimal in Firostefani.
Normally, when my vacation winds down, I'm quite excited to get back home. Not in this case. As I was making my final walk up the stairs away from the hotel, I kept looking back for one last glance.
We couldn't resist the honeymoon villa based on the pictures. We weren't disappointed! Our highlights were sitting in the cave pool listening to the iPod blaring through the speakers, watching the sunset from the infinity pool and strolling along the cliffside walk into town.
The staff were so friendly and incredibly helpful and the breakfast had more choice than expected.
Overall a wonderful first experience of Santorini.
Beautiful hotel and has one of the best views you can get in Fira aka thira. The pool down the stairs is nice as well. Staff are very helpful and happy. The breakfast was actually really good with a lot of choices (buffet breakfasts are usually quite poor in Europe). I would definitely go here again. I didn't see any other hotels that looked just as good.
The hotel is very well located . The rooms are amazing and , more importantly , the service is impeccable. Georges was great in arranging all our tours in the islands , restaurant reservations and even tours in other islands. Fantastic breakfast in-room and breath-taking views from the room balcony. I will certainly return !
Fira is perched on Santorini Island's west side bordering the caldera. Narrow stone paths lined with souvenir shops and restaurants link the town's central square to the upper cable car terminal. Historical museums displaying Greek artifacts and postcard-perfect churches welcome visitors, while mesmerizing sunsets stop tourists in their tracks at the end of a memorable day in this capital city.
