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.

Perfect value for your money. The staff were genuinely nice and helpful. The room that we got originally didn’t had a caldera view but the staff gladly arranged for us to be transferred to a one that had which offered a perfect view of the caldera. The hotel is also located a little further away from the town (10 mins walk) centre so away from all the crowds so it’s quiet and peaceful. In terms of the room, it was perfectly cleaned and it did not disappoint us at all!

Nine rooms in total, all slightly different, with indoor or outdoor private spas. We stayed upstairs, which is more private as passers-by cannot look into your room or spa, and the views are touch better. However all views are great as it is right on caldera and nothing to block the views from Thira to Imerovigli. Breakfast in the room (on the private balcony) really nice, two ladies on reception were really friendly and helpful, completely nice stay and we could not ask for anything more.

I had a nice experience staying at this hotel. Positive Things: The jacuzzi in the bedroom was fun, specially for my daughter, the cleaniness, the friendship of the staff, the location of the hotel that for me is best part of Santorini. The disappointing this was the breakfast that didn't serve a fresh juice nor a fresh cake. If they improved some details in the breakfast it would be a perfect hotel. I am not saying the breakfast was bad but it could be a little bit better. The other bad thing was that very early in the morning the sun could wake us up through the window. The curtain is not thick enough to prevent it.

I was so excited to recreate the gorgeous pictures from the listing, but in actuality, it looks nothing like the pictures. The beautiful, short, white railing has been removed and replaced with a tall, dirty plastic sheet with metal reinforcement. There are not 6 luxurious orange and blue pillows to lay on, there’s 1 dirty, ragged, puke green pillow.

We immediately let the hotel know we would be checking out due to their bait and switch scam where they falsely advertised one thing yet provided another. We didn’t even ask for a full refund as we should have, just 50%, and they still refused. This was a major inconvenience as we had to scramble to find accommodations and transportation during the peak season costing us much more money. Expedia has yet to make this hotel take down their deceiving photos.

There is zero privacy here. While sitting on the patio looking for another hotel, we were asked to help come one push their broken down vehicle, yep, it’s a literal street of cars, motorcycles and people walking directly next to you. (Of course, we helped them push their vehicle, we are good humans. We also obliged the numerous tourist who asked us to take their photos.) You can hear and see through all of your neighbors patios to a parking lot on the other side of the hotel. You can not take good pics of the sunset from your room, because of the people lining the street in front of you taking their own pics.

The WiFi cuts out about 3 times per hour, which did not happen anywhere else we stayed.

The listing states the rooms are soundproofed, which is a lie. You literally hear everything. Every knock on the door, every guest going in and out, up the stairs, every ding from the microwave timer in their kitchen.

It feels like you are being stalked because she just watches you every time you go in and out, since the door to your room is literally right beside her desk.

The hotel is hard to find. Both our drivers coming and going were lost and we had to lug our suitcases up and down stairs and cobblestone to try and find them.

The place is in very poor conditions.
The staff in general is good except for one lady who is very arrogant and close to listen the feedback.
The view is amazing but not worth it versus all the other aspects.
I tried to get my reimbursement with no success, the lady of the reception (Crisa) was very unkind and told me the hotel was good for the little money I paid.

Wonderful apartment with a breathtaking view of caldera . The owner and the staff were so kind and helpful from the moment we arrived . They told us everything for the island ,were to go and what to see. The apartment is always clean and they serve the breakfast at the balcony .What else could I ask for ? I found the price in high season cheap for the days and for this room . Also is 5 minutes walk from fira ,of course alongside the view of caldera !Must visit ! Thanks a lot Nia ,Eirini and Achilleas! We will visit you again !

A very nice boutique hotel with space full, clean rooms with stoning view. The employees super kind and welcome. Breakfast is simple but all kinds fresh and nice. The location is good, 10’ walking distance from the center. Easy parking near by.

This hotel has nothing to claim being a boutique hotel. The fare was as expensive as some of the luxury hotel in the area yet with nothing to offer in comparison - The Ellinon Thea Hotel looks like a budget hotel. Rooms were extricated, decorated with no taste and no comfort. A/C conditioner was out of order. The "jacuzzi" was cold! and the bathroom very small and feeling dodgy. Breakfast was very limited - Orange juice and fruit jam were similar to those you get in a budget hotel. The only positive of this hotel was his view. But, frankly, ALL or the big majority of hotels in this area overlook the caldera. We took photos of the facility to warn other travelers not to fall in the same trap.

Ok, we stayed for 4 nights in a Maisonette room with jacuzzi with Agean View......
Firstly - the positives were the Breakfast, the location in the heart of Firastefani 6 min walk to Fira, and the room was nice enough particularly having TV in bedroom was nice.
NOW onto the negatives....
This was NOT a hotel....its more like a guesthouse. The Maisonettes design isnt great. The Ensuite bathroom is at the top of MARBLE steps and going to bathroom from bed, you could easily fall down the stairs as the ballistrade ends short!
Also... there is no shower curtain in the Ensuite which means water EVERYwhere... and no cleaning up by staff afterwards.... so you use all your towels to soak up the floor so you dont slip until the next morning when after brekky the cleaner comes...
the price - RIDICULOUSLY overpriced.. however this is the average roughly for the area.
The staff leave every afternoon etc which means no one at reception should you need something. albeit they leave a phonenumber...but hey, when your International phone runs out of credit???? what to do....
- not once in 4 nights were our toiletries replaced.
- And when you turn the Jacuzzi bubbles, all the (marble) flooring gets flooded!!!

BUT - the worst is how this holiday ended (the short version)... and it was all due to the staff - one girl in particular ......who basically got into A FIGHT WITH US when we were checking out OVER the Aircon unit which we said never worked for the 4 nights, and she basically called us LIERS and said it worked when she checked it out for us and constantly talked over us in Greek, wouldnt let us finsih our sentences (when we werent as agressive trying to tell her) etc etc it was sooo uncomfortable and should NOT have happened .....

So the long of it (for those who want to read a good ole rant!) - Throughout our stay we mentioned the Aircon didnt work. (We live in the UAE, so we know how Aircon units work!) ....we mentioned it to the said receptionist one morning and she said "yes of course we'll check it out..." fine!
That late afternoon/night we returned and of course, all the staff have gone home as per usual. We get to our room, and there is no note to say the Aircon works..... no note nothing to tell us that that staff member checked out the Aircon for is. And it gets hot particularly in the top floor of a maisonette when its roughly mid 20's - early 30's heat at night. So when we went to check out in the morning, the SAME staff member was there to check us out. I mentioned "The aircon still didnt work... we tried everything over the last 4 nights, it doesnt work?" and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE.... it started off ok... but she proceeded to tell us it did work... after she checked it, it worked. I was like, no it doesnt or at least, it didnt work for us? I said "Unless there is some special trick to get it working, then pressing the ON bottom pointing at the machine over and over again does not work" My husband meanwhile was already getting very agitated by her agressive manner, including her WALKING back up the stairs to our room, checking it again, coming down and telling us to "COME.... it works .. come let me show you" and we were like???? WTF.... there is no point checking it now... we are leaving!!!!!!.... she was basically calling us liars.....
And i was trying to be the calmer one and say to her "Listen, did you check it?" she said yes, and i said " ok, so why didnt you leave us a note to tell us listen it works, if you have trouble please contact us and we'll be over" ??? Do you not think this is pretty reasonable for a hotel to do so? and everytime i tried to reason with her, she continually spoke over us in Greek.... she was THE RUDEST woman i've ever come across in a hotel and beliveve you me i've stayed in quite a few....

So apologies for the long rant.. thinking back on it gets me annoyed again.. she was so rude. Apart from her, stay there fine.. but i personally think there is SOOO much better for the same price!!!!!!

Response from ellinonthea, RAPIDBOUNCE Ltd. at Ellinon Thea Boutique Hotel
Responded 9 Apr 2012
On behalf of the hotel owners of Ellinon Thea Boutique Hotel I would like to firstly apologize for any inconvenience that you feel has been caused to you. Your review has made us extremely sad and actually disappointed us because our aim, as you can see in the other reviews on TripAdvisor, is always to satisfy our guests in terms of hosting, comfort, facilities and service. Regarding the air-condition you complained about the hotel staff clearly stated upon your arrival that it doesn’t work if you do not shut all windows first. We checked it twice the days you complaint about and it was absolutely in order ready to be used. As mentioned upon check-in the reception opens in the morning until 10 p.m. in the evening. On no website we appear as an accommodation with a 24/7 reception. Afterwards, as it is marked on Ellinon Thea’s external door, our guests can always reach our staff on their cell phone. At this point I would like to bring up the fact that all of our rooms have a phone which can be used for external calls so in case our guests don’t have a cell phone or not enough credit on it, they can always you the one in their room. Further, the missing shower curtain in the Maisonette with Aegean View is due to its architecture as it is built on the top of the room under the cupola. It is objectively not possible to place a shower curtain there. In addition, I would like to call attention to our house maid who cleans up the rooms extensively on a daily basis and always changes the toiletries as soon as they are used up from our guests. Finally, on the day of your check-out no one tried to be rude by speaking in Greek as it was only in order to translate what you said between the staff and me the owner. At least we tried to calm down the situation by covering your taxi expenses. Once again we would like to apologize for any frustration you might have felt, however we insist that we always see our guests first and try hard to leave them one by one satisfied, enriched with sweet memories and the wish to come back.

We stayed at the Ellinon Thea in July - It is well placed and very convenient and very new and clean with some luxury features like dressing gowns, embroidered linen etc - but on the other hand it is more a guest house than a hotel - there is nowhere to be other than in your room - no yard, garden, pool deck, or pool or even dining hall. The lower floor rooms are at street level and all who walk or drive by are just about inside your room hence no privacy and a lot of noise - the staff are very nice and try hard to please but I think that considering the limitations, it is overpriced. I would not choose it again and if one does stay there ensure you have an upper floor room for privacy and quiet

Have a great holiday

The beaches are far. You will have to walk (1.2km downhill) or take a bus till Fira and then take another bus to Perissa. To go to Oia, you can catch a bus right in front of the hotel running every 30 mins. It goes straight to Oia. Otherwise, you can rent a car or ATV also.

How to reach this property from the port .
Answer from Erika F

We arrived via airport, and the local bus goes there, so I have to assume it goes to the port as well. The bus stop is a short walk through a parking lot to the property. It is uphill and on a cobble road, so be prepared for a workout.
