great location, quiet, great staff (Maria will make sure that your trip is amazing), close to many restaurants and shopping, wifi does not work well in the rooms, but does outside, there are many steps (84) to go up to get to the main road which can be difficult depending on your physical ability.

Maria, Barbara and Artan are making sure that you have the best holidays of your life. You have essentially room service for your breakfast with the most amazing view in Santorini. You also have on your own patio the sunsets of your life (see photo, and make sure you have Santorini cheese and wine on your table). In 2' walking time you are on the shopping street of Firostefani and in 10' you are in Fira. We will definitely come here again!

We spent 8 nights at Manos Small World on the caldera in Santorini. Everything was beyond expectation. The initial orientation using a map by Maria was a fabulous introduction to the island. The views at sunset were spectacular. The breakfast was served at our own little balcony every morning with a smile- did I mention that view. In fact the service overall was efficient- the staff went out of their way to accommodate every request. Every time we saw Maria she checked whether we needed anything at all. We were leaving early one morning and she arranged a breakfast package for us. Can't fault this amazing accommodation. Highly recommended.

We had a really wonderful experience at this lovely hotel in Santorini, and our stay here was definitely one of our highlights of our trip to Greece. When we first arrived Maria gave us a really lovely introduction and was on hand to help all throughout our stay and give us some useful advice. Artan (sorry if spelling is incorrect) was fantastic too bringing us our breakfast on the terrace everyday and carrying our suitcases up and down the steps when we came and when we left. The breakfasts were definitely one of the highlights of our stay with delicious Greek yoghurt, fresh and dried fruit, and a basket of bread, cakes and pastries - all accompanied by the fantastic view of the caldera that we had from our terrace. The rooms are huge and very nicely furnished and equipped, and the staff made us feel very welcome and provided an extra bed in one of our rooms as we were travelling as a family with 2 teenage kids - unfortunately they only had one twin room which was already occupied. We were also provided with a large bottle of water everyday (as the tap water isn't drinkable). The view was incredible, especially at sunset, and quiet in comparison to going to Oia to watch the sunset - a must see but very crowded! Overall we had a wonderful experience at Manos and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if travelling to Santorini.

Probably the driver of the transfer coach kept good communication with Manos Small World, we were impressed that their helper stood at the parking lot waiting to carry our luggage right when we arrived. Most of the hotels with good view in Santorini are on the slope, some are 3, 4 levels down from the main road with 60-70 steps to climb, and this hotel in a very quiet atmosphere, is just one level down with minimal steps. Many good restaurants, mini-supers, car rentals. free parking lots are within 5 mins walking radius.
The receptionist, Maria gave us a warm welcome. She patiently and helpfully explained the details, took our breakfast order, and briefly introduced the interesting places. Throughout our stay, we were well taken care of, lending us the beach towel, daily room service breakfast and arranging the helper to carry our luggage to the parking lot 5:30 am due to early flight departure.
We stayed in room#11 in the top corner of their multi levels. The balcony is small with a little table to enjoy our sunset viewing and our delicious breakfast. The balconies of other rooms look much spacious, but it is also the passage way of other room guests-lack of privacy. The hotel faces West, we stayed 3 nights 5-8 Jun, luckily had the nice view of sunset to the sea between Oia & Ag. Irini.
The room was nicely divided in and living area with 2 steps up, the bed & bathroom. The living area is in good size has a bench/cupboard, round table and sofa/tea table. All are clean and tidy. Though we knew it well before booking, yet we still consider the double bed is too small to sleep two persons, plus the bed was too soft and the spring underneath was noisy. I couldn't sleep very well. This is my only complaint but do not change my opinion that this is an excellent hotel of its class.

The initial view from this accommodation was breathtaking, as it is situated overlooking the caldera of Santorini. Each room fronts onto one of 3 terraces with sea views. And each room has its own table and chairs on the terrace where a huge breakfast is brought to you.
The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, and extend back into the rock. They are air conditioned if needed.
Maria welcomed us warmly. Checkin was done at a table on the terrace, with a serving of orange juice.

Room Tip: Best views are from one of the upper terraces

Manos is situated in a perfect spot overlooking the Caldera. The views are amazing and it's hard to leave! Our junior suite was large and comfortable, opening straight out onto an outdoor area with a picture-perfect view. Breakfast in the morning is delicious and there's plenty to go around. It's served to you at your room too! We were welcomed so beautifully and made to feel at home. Firostefani (where Manos is) is a good spot to base yourself - it has its own set of beautiful shops, bars and restaurants, plus is only a ten to fifteen minute walk (with ocean views) to the capital Fira. Manos/Firostefani is about a €25 cab ride from the airport. You can easily catch a bus to Oia for the sunset and boutique shopping - bus stops on the main road up from Manos and is about 20 minutes to Oia, costs €1.80 which you can pay in cash on the bus and they do have change if you don't have exact money. Santorini is amazing and Manos was as lovely as we'd hoped for.
