The Loizos apartments are situated in the centre of Fira just a few minutes walk from the edge of the Caldera with its' famous views over the sea.

Lefteris, - the best looking hotel owner in Santorini, picked me up from the airport & while checking in I was given maps & information about the island. From the hotel reception you can hire cars/mopeds buy tickets for some of the boat & wine tours or even hire a masseuse.

I booked one of the single rooms. Room no. 20 was on the ground floor next to reception. It was a lovely big room with a kitchenette in the corner comprising of a fridge, two ring hob, sink and cupboard space with dishes & cutlery.
The bed was huge and very comfortable, there was a TV, air conditioning & patio doors which led out to a spacious patio area with table & chairs. The bathroom was clean & functional comprising of shower, plenty of hot water, sink & toilet, this looked a bit tired although I was told that the bathrooms were due to be refurbished at the end of the 2007 season.

The situation of Loizos could not have been better. There is a supermarket just down the hill within a five minute walk and the bus station is also very close.

Next to the reception desk was a notice board which had bus timetables, daily temparatures and things to do.

There were many comfortable seating areas outside Loizos where you can sit and admire the views. Some of the apartments at the front had doors opening out onto the swimming pool area. Here there were loungers and tables & chairs for everyone to sit & enjoy the greek sunshine. The swimming pool was a little on the small side but it was ultra refreshing after a hot day.

Breakfast is served in a restaurant on the top floor. This room offers great views over the East side of the island - a great way to start the day! Breakfast is charged at 5 Euros per day for which you will get bread, Jam, Honey, a piece of cake and a coffee. There is also a computer in this room offering internet access - I only found out this by chance on my last day!

Unique Qualities: The staff are soooo friendly and will make sure you have a great stay. I paid 45 Euros per night for my room so it's fantastic value for money.

Address: Fira City Center, Santorini
Price Comparison: least expensive
Directions: Past the bus station & post office take the cobbled hill to the right, before the sign for the supermarket. Loizos is on your right hand side a little way up the hill - you can't miss it.
