Reviewed 23 March 2009

We booked this room as San Giorgio, and checked in at San Giorgio, but they put us up in a different building. The business cards called it Horizon Apartments. The biulding was located on the side of the island facing away from the caldera, which slopes gently to the sea, as opposed to the dramatic caldera-side cliffs. Our room had a beautiful view of the ocean (as you can see the ocean from most anywhere) and distant islands. The rental office was in the other property, so the entryway was a shared sitting room. The room was immaculately clean and the bed was comfortable. The built-in bed, desk and couch are a feature we were glad to see preserved from traditional architecture.

It was a 3-4 minute walk to the main (chaotic) hub of Fira, and from there you descend startlingly quickly from noise to silence and the beauty of the footpaths along the cliff's edge. Our motive in staying at San Giorgio was economy; the price of a cliffside hotel would be 4x or more the cost of our hotel. My feeling about the view was that for the most part, it loses its grandeur with the sun's setting, so we were not at all unhappy with retreating to our room after dark. The only disadvantage is that you are forced to enjoy the view by walking the footpaths or sitting at a restaurant.

Service was excellent. We were picked up from the port and driven to the hotel. Upon departure, we were again driven back to port. I left my camera at checkin, and George promptly delivered it to our room, for which I felt bad. Honestly, at the price of these rooms, I felt like we were taking advantage of George and Dina. My only hope for Fira and Santorini is that development will be controlled by the government in a way that will preserve and even enhance the experience for the growing number of tourists that are discovering the islands beauty.
