I have a bit of a problem with too many stairs. Santorini in general has many stairs. The Hippocampus Hotel is located a small community known as Kamari. The hotel is about 100 feet from the beach - all level. There was a ramp to our 1st floor room. Everthing very clean. Gorgeous pool. No great view of ocean but... More

we only stayed there for one night as we had an early flight to catch the next morning. They were shutting down the next day for the off-season so we had the whole place for ourselves. It is a very nice family-run hotel, great owners, mam and "she's the boss" son. Our family room was very spacy, spotless clean, nice... More

We got married in Santorini and booked all our family guests and ourselves into the Hippocampus and we can't praise it enough! After a week there, my wife and I stopped in the North of the island for three days for our honeymoon, and although we had stunning views of the caldera and our own private hot tub, we missed...

We enjoyed our stay at the Hippocampus so much there was tears on the day we had to come home. The place is fairly simple but modern and very clean. It is family owned and run, and what a lovely family. They have not tried to cram as many rooms onto the site as possible which means there is a... More

We went to Santorini as part of a wedding party, a few of our friends were staying in much more expensive spar hotels. But I have to say, surprisingly, the hippocampus was much nicer. So for the money it's certainly the best. The entire hotel is kept so well, the rooms were always clean and look freshly decorated. The pool... More

My partner and I stayed here for a week, as well as 12 other family and friends that same week, as my sister was getting married on the island. The hotel is a lovely family run business, Artemis and all the staff are so friendly, and nothing seemed too much trouble. The bedrooms are spacious and cleaned daily, breakfast was... More

Only stayed 1 night but it was a really lovely one. This hotel located 1 block away from the beach and lots of nice restaurants. 1 block away from the public bus stop that takes you to Fira (20min) and Oia (35min away) on modern, a/c buses. Hotel staff is helpful. Hotel room was clean, IKEA furnished. A/c worked well,... More

We only have positive things to say about this hotel. We chose this hotel for ourselves and our wedding guests. All were very happy with our choice, as we're we.

Just returned from the Hippocampus after a 10 night holiday. The hotel is spotlessly clean from top to bottom. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are more than adequate with a good size shower. Beds are comfy as well. Breakfast, although the same buffet every day is a lovely fresh continental spread. The hotel is a one... More
