Hotel doesn't have a sea view but it is nicely located by the bus station to port and all around the island. Next to it there are restaurants, super markets, bakeries... Everything you need. It is in Mesaria but it is only 10 min on scooter from the main town Thira where all the fun takes place. But is lot cheaper than staying in Thira. The best in hotel is lovely Julia who is in charge of everything. And she does a great job. She will provide anything you ask for. Rooms are nice and specious and they keep it extremely clean. We stayed there for 7 nights and we were very pleased. Tip-you can get there from the port by local bus (around 2 eur per person) instead taking a transfer (10 eur per person) since the bus stop is wright in front of hotel.
Hotel is so relaxed.
Hotel not in a town or village (30 min walk), so you ideally need transport.
Book a hire car to pick up at the airport - and you pay far less. ( research hotel location, as not immediately obvious from road ).
Avoid eating in the Thira, and you'll pay less for food, and get better quality.
Try the bakeries, the food is fabulous, and they are incredibly cheap.
Overall - really enjoyed the stay.
"This hotel would be a bargain at twice the price"
Great value for the money. The staff couldn't be nicer. The price included transportation from the port. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but adequate by Greek standards. This is a little ways outside of town so I would recommend renting a quad or motorbike during your stay. The rates for rental are very reasonable $15 -20.

The hotel is beautiful and the stuff is very friendly, perfect for a family holiday :D Although it is far from the beach, there are buses but renting a car is the best option. We really enjoyed our time there. Delicious breakfast.
From the moment we arrived at the Hotel Kalisperis we were warmly greeted, had all of our inquiries answered, and were shown to our room. All the staff went out of there way to make sure were on the right buses to other parts of the Santorini and even brought us by personal car to a bus stop on the last day. The breakfast was perfect and we were able to enjoy it overlooking the pool as we basked in the Santorini sun.
Historic churches, quaint taverns, and a restored mansion owned by a local winemaker draw visitors to Santorini's central village of Messaria . Street vendors sell local fare at Messaria's crossroads, and vast surrounding vineyards produce Santorini's finest wines. After sampling the bounty of Messaria, visitors can access convenient bus service to the island's beaches and neighboring villages.
