“Met my expectations, and then some!”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

Had a wonderful stay at Hotel Keti, 19-22 March 2012. I learned of this hotel from the Lonely Planet website that lists it as a recommendation. Having a recommendation in this guide book made me have high expectations for it. I was not disappointed at all.

Yes, there are stairs to descend and climb to get to and from the hotel. In my view, anyone with "normal" mobility should not have a problem with this.

The view of the caldera is amazing. Yannis was exceedingly helpful in suggesting a restaurant to attend during my non-tourist season stay. He also was very helpful in helping me plan my hikes (Oia, Ancient Thira from Parissa, etc.).

The room I stayed in (Cave Room, king size bed) was clean and well maintained.

Wifi internet was sketchy from the room, but worked very well from the reception lobby and I was even able to Skype back to my family.

I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying on Santorini.

A superbly restful time with built in periodic exercise routine ascending the stairs to the Santorini streets. Suite with private balcony felt like a spacious ancient cave and commanded superb views of the Caldera. Serve yourself breakfast was understated but perfect for us and well worth the money. Staff were helpful. Don't bother getting taxi to hotel, as they merely drop you at the top of the town with no added advantage over the bus. Intend to book the same room on my return...

Room Tip: Get the charming room with the private balcony.

Our stay capped off our trip to Greece and it was just spectacular. We stayed in the Cave Room and were very comfortable. The view simply cannot be beat, the room was very comfortable and clean and the staff gracious and very helpful. The breeze coming in through the windows and the entertainment of watching the cable cars, climbers and mules going to and from the old port were highlights of staying here. The bed needs to be turned around, because someone has to climb over the other person to get out. My biggest complaint is the lack of any way to make tea or coffee. There is a stove, but no pan and no electric kettle. Someone will bring you hot water if you ask.Wifi is spottty as mentioned and the climb is brutal, but it is anywhere you would stay with this unimpeded view.

Room Tip: Choose a room according to price. There are plenty of shared balconies to catch the view.

We stayed at Hotel Keti in June 2011 before going on to Athens. I must say that this has to be the best value for money hotel on the whole island. Spectacular views across the caldera. We stayed in room 3 which was excellent for us. The view from the window was a million dollar view. Excellent location only 70 odd steps to come down. We got the bus from the airport that dropped us at the terminal in Fira and we took a 15 minute walk from there. The night life can be heard across the Caldera but you can hear that from any of the hotels so I wouldn't worry about that. Very handy about a 10 minute walk to the centre where you can find a whole host of value for money restaurants. Obelix is great for a 2 euro pork giros (beautiful and a must try). I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Top value clean and friendly.

Room Tip: Room 3 I think is the best value for money if you can get it

We stayed four nights at Hotel Keti during our honeymoon and it was everything we expected and more. The location and views are stunning, our double standard room was spacious, cool (biggest and best room and bathroom we had during the trip) and the room service was wonderful - nothing like getting a beautifully chilled wine or beer brought up to you on the balcony overlooking the caldera! Their room service prices were very good also as was the breakfast which offered much better value than eating out. The staff were lovely and helpful and all their recommendations were great (restaurants, ATV hire and tours). Highly recommend this hotel, it offers great value for money and is a truly lovely place to stay.

A spectacular hotel located in the caldera at Fira. Within walking distance from the heart of Fira. The views at this hotel are amazing. Clean, comfortable rooms. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are terrific.

Room Tip: This hotel is very affordable in the shoulder season. We went in October 2011.

We stayed 4 nights at Hotel Keti and it was one of our favourite places we stayed during our 4 weeks in Europe. The hotel is in a great location, with a short walk to the main pedestrian areas of Fira. Our room was a superior double and, for the price of 120 euros per night, is one of the best value hotels that features a view over the caldera. The room is very large, and featured a mini refrigerator, and even a sink. Free WiFi is available but only really seams to work from the balcony outside the room. The rooms have a shared balcony/patio with 2 other rooms and it was the perfect place to enjoy a bottle of wine at night while watching the sunset. Don't bother fighting the crowds at Oia, stay at the hotel for a view that is just as good, and way more peaceful.

The spectacular views are what really makes this hotel worth the money though. From your balcony you have a perfect panorama over the caldera, and you can see the endless train of donkeys and tourists winding their way up the path from the old port every morning.

The staff at the hotel were incredibly friendly and were more than happy to keep our bags for us on our early arrival and late departure. They also recommended some good places to eat, and gave us a little bit of history of the island.

If you are looking to stay in the heart of Santorini and have a fantastic view over the caldera, all at a reasonable price; then look no further than Hotel Keti! We would definitely be staying here again if we returned.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies, the cave-house suite has a private balcony.
