Magnificent view of the caldera from the balcony outside our room. Wonderful place to view the sunset and also to eat breakfast which is delivered every morning on demand and included in the price. Local bus was handy and we found this a good way to get around the island. Plenty of restaurant options within easy walking distance and the...

We were lucky to get a spot at this wonderful place.. We got a ground floor room but it was a perfect little place with a very comfortable set up. And while everyone opts to stay in Oia, or Fira, this place has an equally good view at very reasonable rates. And true to their website, we indeed had breakfast...

We just returned from spending 3 nights at Smaro Studios. You never know what you're going to get after choosing a hotel on TripAdvisor, but we were not disappointed. This hotel is tucked into the hillside on the caldera side with AMAZING views! After visiting Oia one afternoon, we are SO glad we didn't stay there - way too many...

These apartments are basic but very clean unfortunately we couldn't say the same about the pool, we arrived around 2pm & had planned to spend the afternoon around it but when we arrived & saw the pool it was cloudy & you could only just see the first two steps & there was green algae around the top of the...

Stayed two nights at Smaro Studio in a regular apartment with my wife and 8 months old baby. We receive a wonderfull welcome and was able to leave our luggage at reception because we were to early for check-in. The room was perfect and a baby crib was waiting for our little baby (a special attention important for us). The...

My fiancé and I were so excited to visit Santorini and we were going crazy trying to find a room with one of the amazing views of the caldera that wouldn't completely destroy our budget. Finally we can across Smaro and we could not have been happier with our experience! When we arrived we were greeted at the front by...

Not sure how we got so lucky, but we ended up getting the very top room, so the view was SPECTACULAR. The breakfast was delicious and hearty and would be served on the porch outside your individual room, overlooking the water. We arrived late evening without our bags (they were lost in Athens), but the view in the morning made...
