Refrigeration Issue: The food we had bought the day before was found to be frozen the next day. The refrigerator's temperature was set to a default setting, causing our purchased food to become inedible. This unexpected issue added to our inconvenience.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The apartment was very nice and it has everything in it and spacious. It was pleasant to stay in. And it’s close to the bus station around 5 min walk. Roberto was very nice to us. The apartment was very close to the town. There is coffee and tea they provide you with.

We visited Santorini during 3 days this August and stayed two nights in Altea Apartments. We are a family with 3 children. Altea Hotel is very conveniently located. Walking distance from Thera and its amazing view, from the bus station (you can visit the whole Island from there) and from a bakery and shops.
But I would say that the best from Altea is the management. They take care of everything, instantly reply to your messages and provide a lot of useful information about Santorini.
The apartment is very big, even being 5 we had a lot of space.
I definitely recommend Altea Apartments.

Simple but well located, you'll find a helpful staff that can give you nice tips about how to get around and what to do in Santorini. They don't offer breakfast but there's delicious bakery just around the corner called Mylonas.

I would avoid this apartment at all cost. Unlike the reviews, my experience was utter chaos, teaching me not to rely solely on a small number of reviews when considering booking a newly listed accommodation. I feel compelled to share my accurate experience to prevent others from having a dreadful experience. The reservation team showed complete irresponsibility, providing unreasonable excuses and failing to provide solutions for numerous problems:
1) Terrible or no internet speed (0.93 Mbps, far below the expected standard of 100)
2) No response to messages before the arrival
3) Disruptive construction drilling noise that woke me up early in the morning and was ongoing for hours
4) Poor soundproofing that prevented me from sleeping at night
5) A squeaky bed and stains on the pillowcase
6) Shower head that did not work properly; the entire bathroom floor was wet because there was no shower curtain, so your feet got soaking wet every time you entered; no bathroom door handle and the hot water stopped unexpectedly
7) All the food I purchased was frozen the next day in the fridge, and the management team blamed the previous guests, when it should have been checked or communicated to the next guest prior to the check-in

This was undeniably one of the most disappointing experiences I've ever had. It not only failed to meet basic accommodation standards but also demonstrated a profound level of irresponsibility and disregard for service quality.

Its location is an easy walk to bus station, shops and restaurants. Room is clean and roomy, with daily cleaning service. All service team members we encountered are exceptional with what they do. Communication is prompt and clear.

The mattress is on the harder side.

These apartments are great and the price is right! I came with 2 others, so the apartment was the perfect size for us! The locations is great as well--a short distance to the main part of Fira and the bus stop. There is a 24 hour bakery just down the street which was very convenient. Chris was so helpful! He helped us navigate the island. He brought fruit to us the first morning and left us a very nice note before we left. I highly recommend staying here!

Staying in the Altea Apartments was a great choice when visiting Santorini. First we were welcomed with a cold drink as Chris knew we had been traveling for a while that day. Check in was a breeze, and he explained everything we needed to know regarding the island and directions to the center of Fira.

The location is excellent and is close to the bus station and shops.

The apartment was very clean and modern, and we absolutely enjoyed our stay. We had complimentary wine and fruit and could not ask for better service!

I would definitely recommend Altea Apartments to anyone staying in Fira! Thank you!

We have spent 2 nights in altea apartment, big rooms, got complimentary wine and fruits... Comfortable bed... Walking distance to bus stand, restaurants and fira square... The most important part is service... Very very helpful staff... Our flight got cancelled due to strike in Greece... We didn't even knew and haven't even got the update from airline... But the staff helped us to book new tickets and she was very very helpful throughout our stay in ALTEA...
Highly recommended!!

We took an apartment here for a few days in June. Dora in the office was very welcoming, told us how to get around in the neighborhood, what beaches are on the island, and what to see. She took us to our apartment, where we found a small flask of wine and some nuts to welcome us. The apartment was a 1-bedroom, with a double bed plus a single bed in the main room (the description calls it a sofa bed, but it was not a pullout, just a single bed). Both beds were firm and very comfortable, and it was pretty quiet, so we slept well. The apartment was good size, open and bright, airy, with a balcony. Kitchen with stove, small refrigerator, coffee maker, some pots and dishes, etc. (can't remember if there was an oven), bath with a shower. Very clean. Air conditioner in the bedroom, worked fine. No view--you could see the sea from the apt, but you would have to look over a vacant lot, or a parking lot (that's why the price was good!). The building was beautiful, white walls, potted plants here and there. Wireless was great.
The apartments are a couple of blocks from the main street, so a bit quieter, but close to whatever you needed. You can walk to the main part of town pretty quickly. A short walk next to the vacant lot behind the building brings you to a street with cafes and restaurants, and a block or so beyond that is the main bus stop for the island, so you can get anywhere you need to go. We took the bus to Oia from there the first night, with no trouble at all. If you stay there, make sure you go to the bakery half a block away--wonderful breads, rolls, sweets, plus coffee, if you don't want to make breakfast.
Pros:
friendly people
attractive building
bright roomy apartment
close to everything
wireless
excellent value
Cons:
not much of a view

Booked the Altea Apartments at short notice on a recent trip to Santorini and was really impressed with firstly the size of the one bedroom apartment and the cleanliness was faultless.
Check in was swift and the apartments are close to the centre of the main square and the bus station.
