Amy Adejokun Section editor

Just so that it's clear, the King Thiras is definitely a city hotel. You won't find anything here but the guest rooms and a breakfast room. Its main advantage, then, is its location: it is in the immediate vicinity of Santorini's city centre. Guests are warmly welcomed by the Greek owner, who is both friendly and kind. The hotel is open from April to October.

    Location 1.0 /10

    The establishment is located at the heart of the city of Fira, the capital of Santorini. The city centre is only 300m away. On the other hand, though, to reach the beach you have to travel the 2.5 or 3 miles it takes to reach Monolithis and Kamari.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    The hotel's 17 guest rooms are all in the standard category. All offering the same comfort, the differences between them lie in their view, location and number of beds (single, double, triple). They are decorated in light colours which include white and grey. The curtains match the bedspreads and there is a balcony with plastic furniture. Located above the street, the noise can sometimes travel up to the rooms. For amenities, there is a safe at reception but every room has a television, air-conditioning and a refrigerator. As for the bathroom, it is not very large. The Italian-style shower is separated from the wash basin and toilet by a simple curtain.

    Overview 4.95 /10

    Although the King Thiras has been open since the beginning of the 90s, the owner told us that it is renovated every year. However, this means simple repairs more than anything. Whatever the case may be, as a whole the establishment is very well-maintained. The hotel consists of a single white building with several storeys located along the road and just a stone's throw away from Fira. The small lobby consists of a reception counter sunk into the wall. Facing it is a small lounge with traditional furniture, including a bookshelf. You sort of get the feeling here of being inside somebody's home rather than in a hotel lobby. The corridors leading to the guest rooms are open to the back of the building but the view just consists of abandoned buildings.

    Food and drink

    The hotel does not have a restaurant but there is a breakfast room, which is located in the extension of the lobby. The space is furnished with ten or so tables that are set up fairly close together. This set-up does help to create a warm atmosphere, though. Artificial flowers serve as the centrepieces. A small buffet is set up on the bar but the choice is limited: just some bread, a few varieties of cereal and a supposedly homemade cake.

    To know

    There is a free Wi-Fi Internet connection.

      • Value for money 6.94
      • Location 7.42

      The Atlantis is located on a hill in the town of Fira and was the first hotel to be built on the island in the 1960's. It is closed and renovated every year during the winter season, which means that the few facilities that it has are well maintained. The hotel enjoys fine views over the volcano crater, but it is also close to the pedestrian area of the capital, Santorini, making it well placed for exploring this small Greek town on foot. Most of the guests here are senior citizens from America.
