We stayed at Smaro Studios in Firestifano, Santorini for three nights in August 2015. Smaro Studios is a small family run establishment which we chose after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor - a decision that we did not regret. The Smaro Studio rooms aren't big but they have everything that you need including a cook top should you wish...

We had a lovely stay at Smaro Studios. The rooms are clean, the staff super friendly and helpful and the view on the caldera is just magnificent. There's plenty of restaurants and shops nearby and the super busy Fira can be reached by foot within 10 minutes. Forget the overly crowded sunset at Oia and just stay on your private...

Stayed two nights Smaro Studios and was really impressed by the hospitality of the owners. The studio apartment has everything you need to cook and stay comfortably, and the owners provide you with some welcome fruit, local wine, tea and coffee. The location is outstanding with beautiful views of the sunset and classic Firostefani! A bit difficult to find the...

Smart Studios has amazing views of the Caldera. To have this location in the enjoyable village of Firostefani at a very reasonable rate is a great value. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is most welcoming and accommodating. After researching various Caldera-view options in expensive Santorini, I chose Smaro Studios and I am very pleased that I did...

My son and I stayed here in April and it was perfect. When we walked down the steps to the Hotel we just thought we had died and gone to heaven. The view was outstanding and the staff so very nice and helpful. Breakfast was yummy. Our room was beautiful and very spacious.

There are five different studios here, we had the Grandma Smaro one which is the one with the bed on the mezzanine floor. The bed was comfortable and we had our own mini porch with table to eat breakfast off. It was great. Not all studios have a porch, I think you have to go to a separate place to...

My daughter and I chose to stay at Smaro studios based on reviews - good price, friendly family-owned and on the caldera! At first we we're not sure if we needed to be on the caldera as we thought we would be out at cliff side restaurants for sunset! However we very much enjoyed just sitting on our balcony with...

My friend and I stayed at Dmitris' room beside the Reception area. It was spacious, has it's own kitchenette and VERY CLEAN. The welcome fruit platter, nuts and Santo wine are delicious. The balcony is not part of the room, we had to go up the rooftop past the other rooms. No problem there as we still enjoyed eating brakfast...

A beautiful little hotel with terrace for each room. The sunset views are just amazing. We loved the mornings and evenings that we spent at Smaro Studios. The day started with a big tray of breakfast served by Maria at the roof top looking at the lovely views of the volcano. During evenings, the sunsets views were as soothing as...
