“Amazing place, would love to return!”
Reviewed 1 July 2011

Maria, the hotel owner, was wonderful and spoke great English. We booked our room via email and she gave great information and directions. The hotel is in a great location - right off of the main foot path, but far enough away that it is very quiet at night. Nearby there is a little grocery store, an internet cafe, and many restaurants/cafes and vehicle rentals.

The view from our room was amazing - we had a private terrace big enough for two chairs, a table, an umbrella, and a little bench. While the room was simply furnished, it had everything we needed: double bed in a spacious loft, single bed on the ground floor, as well as two tables and chairs, a tiny kitchenette with a fridge and air conditioning (which helped up in the loft(. The bathroom was small, but very clean. A maid came every day to change sheets/mop floors/empty trash, etc.

The only real negative is that they took cash only. This wouldn't have been a huge issue except that when we were in Oia the two ATM's in the town were broken, so we had to take a bus to a nearby town to withdraw money.

Overall we had a wonderful stay. We looked long and hard for budget accommodations in Oia and this absolutely exceeded our expectations. We would recommend this to anyone!

Stayed June 2011, travelled as a couple

This is a budget accommodation, so do not expect any luxuries. But the view is included in the price ant it is just stunning.
Studios are bigger then rooms, have all necessities. Shower is hand held though.
It was a little difficult to find the place, and no one seemed to know where it was, but if you look closely on the roofs you will see the sign. Thea is located right under Grand Canava - next to the first church in town ( from Fira direction).
Owner is very responsive and nice. Has free WiFi. No pool, but the hotel next door has it, and you might try to sneak in. Has A mini-mart , car rental and bus-station right next to it.

Room Tip: Ask for studio it is bigger ( same price)

Reviewed 28 August 2007

Thea Studios Rooms is in an ideal location, set into to the cliffside overlooking Santorini's world famous bay and caldera. The room was spacious and air conditioned and the owners really lovely. In terms of value, compared to alot of properties in the area, it is excellent. However, there are a few points to note if you are thinking of staying here. The terrace that we had was not private as we were told it would be - it was one long one, separated from next door by some plant pots. Also, the kitchenette was just a fridge and a freestanding two ring hob (one ring only big enough for warming a mug) and we only had one knife. The cleaner comes every day but she likes you to move out of the apartment and off the terrace whilst she cleans, which can take quite a while. Finally, we did not have a double bed - we had two singles which had surrounding wooden frames, pushed together, so to all intents and purposes we had a twin room. Having said this the studio next door had a four poster bed, and the one two down had a private terrace so I would advise specifying exactly what you are looking for when booking.
All in all, a lovely break though and with Thea Studios, you get what you pay for.
