The Ira Hotel & Spa is amazing! My husband and went on a Mediterranean cruise in October which departed from Athens. We decided to go 3 days ahead of the cruise so we could go to Santorini which is a place we have always wanted to visit. We arrived into Athens on October 8th and were supposed to fly to... More

I was lucky enough to stay here in Oct 2016 for 6 nights. I have stayed at other hotels in the past in Santorini as I now visit yearly and this was my first time at Ira. Let's just say it will not be my last time. The details in this hotel are amazing. I felt like family. Maria is... More

Excellent hotel situated in Firostefani. Great views of the Caldera and beautiful sunsets. Make sure you book a room with a view of the Caldera. Just a warning there are plenty of steps throughout the hotel. This hotel is located about a 20 min walk from Fira in a quite spot, Fira is too busy and noisy. All the staff... More

This hotel is located along one of the highest points along the Caldera in Firastefani. This area is quieter than Fira, the main town and the hotel has some of the best views. The two ladies working the reception desk, Maria and Adele were helpful in giving us directions to the best places in the island and helping secure a... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights on our honeymoon. It's a beautiful hotel with all of your needs, including stunning views. the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Absolutely incredible view, that you can enjoy from the pool or lounge for example for breakfast. Had a cave-room which was very loud from the common area and not shielded properly with curtains. No phone-access in rooms, which is understandable. Nice wifi and breakfast. Is located just on the outskirts of the town, which means a big of extra walking.

I surprised my husband for his 50th birthday with a trip to Santorini, so I did a lot of research before I booked to try and make sure it was special. I cannot express how amazing the views are at this hotel. I wanted to book somewhere which had great views of both the caldera and the white hillside buildings... More

We stayed 4 nights in Santorini - 2 in another hotel in Oia and 2 in Ira Hotel & Spa, and although the views in Oia were great, the stay at Ira was much, much better. I especially loved our room (Aphrodite) which was spacious, super comfortable and to us, a complete luxury. It faced the sea/caldera and the view... More

Where to start? For my wife's 50th birthday she wanted to wake up in Santorini, and the Ira Hotel could not have been a better choice.

The hotel is a ten-minute leisurely and picturesque walk to the center. The rooms were big, bright, clean, comfy and quiet. Many rooms are two levels with stairs down to a bathroom which is actually a nice feature. The breakfast was ample and service overall was excellent. We have told our friends about it. Did I mention the view?
