Have just returned home after staying at Scirocco for a week and can only say that it's been super.
We lived in unit 8 which is located just above the pool, 87 floors up to the front desk, but with an incomparable view.
The room was large and typically Greek with a double bed, a bathroom, a balcony and a terrace. In the room there was also a fridge and kettle, and it was cleaned every day.
The staff has been great, starting from the airport, where we were picked up until we went home.
The breakfast that was included in the price and may be simple (as somebody wrote), but for me it was good . Had perhaps wished that they had changed it a bit from time to time. But you have the possibility to make your own if you want to down in the room.
However, one can not have everything in this world.
Another thing to consider is that the beds are typically Greek, which means, they are pretty hard. But it´s said to be good for the back and yes, you where a little stiff in the morning. But that where just before you got up.
Laying on the cliffside, it took about 10 minutes ,walk including all stairs, to get to the center with all shops and restaurants.
Would I stay here again?
Definitely

My wife and I stayed here for three nights as our first stop on a tour of Europe. We were had done a ton of research and were looking for good value more than anything. Our opinion: This place far exceeded our expectations. Even if we had paid more, it would still have been worth it.

Room tip: we were fortunate to have #16 which is very removed from everything, at the very bottom, and has a terrace. It's a front row seat to the caldera!

Pros
- Unobstructed caldera view with NOTHING between you and the cliff.
- Very clean! The staff are always working hard to keep the place clean.
- Friendly staff who gave us plenty of advice about the island and were always happy to stop their incessant cleaning to answer a couple questions.
- Ben happily carried our bags from our room to the top of the caldera, not just to the top of the hotel. (he actually did this both to and from the hotel, but the "from" part was the most impressive)
- Pickup from the airport is included, which is more handy than you'd think.

Cons
- Beds are hard (not unique to this hotel, it seems to be a Greek thing)
- 100+ steps from the bottom to the top. However, your cardiovascular system will see this as a "pro".
- Breakfast isn't a good deal. There are much better deals to be had within 10 minutes walk (Mama's House is a great example).

The Scirocco apartments are fantastic.Me and my wife were celebrating our 25th anniversary and decided to stay here after reading reviews and we certianly were not dissapointed. Anja picked us up at airport-just give her a call when your flight arrives and by the time you come out after getting your luggage she will be there, then on arrival at the apartments your luggage is taken by Eddie(as due to location vehicles can only reach so far) and he takes them to the the reception then carries them to your room. We stayed in room 16 which has 93 steps to reach but as long as you don't have any walking disability is Ok,.Just take your time and stop if need be and just enjoy the fantastic views.All rooms have a Caldera views which is amazing.The rooms are cleaned daily by her staff (special mention to Atori) and if you require clean towels they are available every day if you need them changed,sheets changed regulary. Breakfast was served every morning from 9 am to 11 am on the breakfast balcony although you could go up a little bit early and get it and if you wished take it back to your own balcony.Breakfast consisted of Yoghurt, boiled egg, bread, marmalade ,jam, cheese spread and Tea or Coffee (pot).The best part was the amazing views of the Caldera. Never took so many photo's before.It is a short distance to the centre of Fira again with a few cobbled steps(83) to reach there but everything is worth it. Santorini is such a beautiful island i was so surprised how clean the place was.You meet so many nationality's at the apartments.Visited Firofestani,Imerovigil, Perrissa, Kamri and not forgetting Oia. The views from Oia are spectacular as are the views from Firofestani and Imerovigil( the highest village on the island).We stayed at the Scirocco Apartments for a week and was sad to leave as we miss waking up to the views.As on arrival our luggage was taken back to car by Eddie then driven to Airport by one of Anja's daughters. Anja should be proud of her staff for the professionalism they deliver. If you had any problems they would go out of there way to sort it out.Would i return, DEFINITLEY. Thanks for a great time

The view from our room looked like a photo in a magazine. Magnificent. Clean. Known for having the best sunset in the world, this location will not disappoint. Affordable, helpful staff. We had a morning of brief rain, and coffee was brought to our room. Nice touch. Be prepared for stairs, those with walking difficulties should not stay here as you must climb up to all restaurants and shops. However for us, it was perfect. Would stay here again.

The Scirocco appartements are great!
Firstly we were picked up at the airport by the owner Anja. Afterwards, she gave us even a brief overview of dos and dont's.
The apartments are really well maintained and clean and very good quality for a great price.
Staff really helpful and kind.
I would not eat breakfast as the items are not fresh but except from that it's a great location.
