5 of us stayed here, 2 rooms with caldera views and one without.. The room without still had the view if you stood by tour door.. The rooms were small , but when you see how these hotels cling to the caldera you know they will never be big. they were clean and comfortable and perfect for our needs.. The...

(sorry for my English as I'm French) Amazing hotel and as it is located at the top of the Firostefani village, you have an amazing view of the entire city and the caldera. In my opinion, after walking in all the little streets of Firostefani and see most of the hotels, Villa Ilias has actually the best panoramic view of...

Service was great. They have two rooms separate from their main location. If you need two bedrooms, these are great, since you then share two adjacent and fair private patios. We appreciated that when we made an error in booking, they fixed it, and priced the room less than normal, even though it was our fault.

True value for money, staff were really friendly and helpful. We had a bit of an issue with wi-fi but staff was on it straight away and problem was fixed. Apart from that location and views were awesome, photos cannot do the justice. Highly recommended place to fellow travelers

We stayed in Villa Ilias in last week of May, in their Traditional Apartment, which is a 2 mins walk from their main hotel. We loved the place. Location was superb. The apartment was self sufficient. Views from the apartment were great. The owners and other staff were very friendly. We reached the place late in the evening and we...

We cannot praise this hotel and its staff enough. Perhaps the most significant aspect of the hotel are the views - absolutely spectacular. The hotel overlooks the wonderful sites you see on postcards. The location was excellent as Firostephani is just out of the really busy area of Fira. However, it was in walking distance to restaurants, shops and the...

We stayed at Villa Ilias for 5 days in mid May and had a fabulous time. The owners and staff were very friendly and accomodating. The location of the hotel is great, very easy to find and very accessible. Firostefani is quiet, but with enough restaurants and mini-markets without having to travel any distances. Villa Ilias is located on the...

I was thrilled to get a caldera-view room at a great rate. Booking rather last-minute in May, I was able to get a great rate for a comfortable room at this family-run hotel near Fira. The hotel is easy to access both from the main road as well as the cobblestone walk-street and is an easy walk to the center...

It was my first visit to Greece, and Santorini for my daughter and I, and really enjoyed our stay at Villa Ilias. The hotel's views were super, pool area overlooking the caldera stunning, and the town of Fira.
