TravelPod Member ReviewsAethrio Hotel Oia
We booked Aethrio for a good central location and it delivered on that front.
We were aware that the hotel was not on the caldera edge with sunset views and were quite unsure if we should spend lot more for a sunset view from the hotel or room. We decided to save the money and spend or on nice lavish dinners instead.
You get the views from anywhere in Oia. We did not mind coming back to the room and not seeing the view from there as well. Watching the sunset with other people was a lot of fun. The crowds actually applaud the sun. The sun set spectacularly on the horizon.
Breakfast was a good event with alot of choice, the hotel was clean with a nice pool, helpful staff. I would recommend.

... from every part of the walk. It was so hot and E was starting to get cranky when we arrived at Oia so we went to a little cafe called Passagio, for fresh juice and Damien got Greek yogurt with sour cherry, honey and almonds. We then had a walk through Oia which was very busy and found a little restaurant for dinner that had a view of the sunset. Our table was perfect to watch the sunset and dinner was delicious! We shared haloumi for entree, D - souvlaki and ...
... for Santorini. So glad we stopped. We were able to see all the artifacts from The ancient site. The wall murals were amazing. 3 1/2 hours later we are done (the guidebooks say to allow 2 hours) and catching cab to Central Market. What a jaw dropping experience that was! The meat stalls full of whole lamb with skinned heads attached. The heart and other unidentifiable organs hanging. The sellers yelling and hocking ...
After a leisurely day by the pool we walked into Oia in search of a gyro. We wanted something in our tummies prior to the wine tasting adventure planned for the afternoon. We asked a local and they directed us to an area near the bus station, and it was a good find. We each had a delicious, fresh gyro, exactly what we had been craving!
... we were back on our way in about an hour. I told the car rental company to send us a new car other than this old POS and at first they wavered but then they decided to when I told them to keep the car and cancel the reservation.
Earlier in the day we made dinner reservations at a place that was supposed to have amazing sunset views so we figured that since we just had a full lunch and were a bit stressed from the flat tire and having ...
... some lunch in Thira. Ruby got some passport photos taken ready for in Athens. Then we headed by bus again to our accommodation in Oia on the northwestern side of Santorini. Oia is the city where all those famous pictures of Santorini are taken and driving into it, we could see why - it’s absolutely picturesque! After settling into our accommodation we set off along the main area of Oia where there are many shops and touristy things to look at. ...
