    The Hotel is served by the one person who is the owner of the Hotel. If You will chose that Hotel pls be ready to live in the museum as all furniture and stuff are from antiquate store.

    The cutiest B&B you can find on the island. Once we arrived, we were awwwed...every little detail about the place brought us peace and quiet. I couldn't stop saying how cute the place was to friends who stayed somewhere else on the island. Loved every mintute of our stay :)

    This little gem was on the outskirts of Oia in a traditional settlement called Foinikia, with a view over the valley below and the ocean. The renovated cave houses were charming and tastefully decorated. We stayed in the double which was more than enough room for two people. Sophia the owner was very welcoming upon arrival and made sure we felt at home during the duration of our stay. When she found out we were on our honeymoon she offered to make dinner for us (which was fantastic!). We had a wonderful time during our stay and would not hesitate to go back.

    I love the environment, it is very beautiful, clean and comfortable! The Owner is very nice and kind. I really miss her homemade juice, really fresh and quenching. I strongly recommend this accommodation to people who want to live in a traditional cave house in Oia, because it is valuable at price!

    Heliophos offered everything that was promised at booking... The location in the traditional cave houses offers a unique and nostalgic holiday in a wonderful setting. The proprietress was amazing... warm, genuine, helpful, (patient because she waited up late to let us in when we were delayed). She offers an amazing and chic ambiance which few other places can rival. Breakfast was an assortment of authentic local products and classic Greek fare... IE real yogurt and wonderful backed goods, canned fruits, etc. Santorini offers two ideal settings for rooms... either looking itno the Caldera, or staying in a cave house like Heliophos. Heliophos offers the cave house setting, well maintained and comfortable, with excellent care from the owners. Wonderful sea views, no noise from roads, but an easy walk into Oia for a sunset meal and drinks after dark. The location of Finikia is great for visiting the entire island if you have a rental car or you are willing to use the public bus system. There are also ample opportunities to hike the island, but it is a very hot desert setting.

    The owner Sofia is a bubbly and very helpful person. The accommodaton is reasonably priced unlike hotels in Oia and in excellent condition, traditional cave houses in a quiet village, with a great view from the balcony. Absolutely recommend this hotel to any type of traveller as it is just 10 minutes walk from Oia and away from the tourists. It was great to experience a very traditional location and beautiful cave house.

    Breakfast is repetitive and basic

    kind host and good service. the room is very cool even during the mid noon. Nice environment. Breakfast is good.

    bathroom too small. And the location for the hotel is a bit far away from the town. it is not easy to find the hotel without other one's guide. no ocean view when living in the hotel.

    we loved every minute of it, we couldn't have found a nicer place to stay in santorin. the room was beautiful, and we ended up spending a whole day on sofias terrace. fantastic breakfast with homemade jam. the village of finiaki is really close to oia, yet very calm with great views, too and an ancient centre to explore. nice little taverna with great food just next door. very much recommending this place!

    We loved Heliophos ! The place is very pretty, in a small traditional village just 5 minutes walk to the center of Oia (the prettiest village in Santorini). We could choose our room on arrival. It was very cute, clean, with a kitchenette if we wanted to make breakfast and a terrace. Some rooms are cave-rooms, which is pretty authentic and nice. Decoration is lovely. The owner is super nice, very helpful all the time. She is very flexible with the timings, which is cool when you are on holidays. Breakfast is fabulous, with a lot of choice and everything is good and fresh. Best place to stay !

    The place is hard to find. You have to take 2 buses from the port to get there. Shower was a little weird (no shower tub which means you put water a little everywhere).

    Superb

    The room and place were so beautiful. We love that at breakfast we came to the main table and ate together among guess so we had many new friends who we can share trip experience. Sofia, the owner, was very nice, flexible and helpful. The place is quite far but still in walking distance to Oia, the most beautiful area in Santorini.

    We wish we were foretold that we need to tell the bus to stop for us one village before Oia. This information should be showned in the website. Because we didn't know, we had to carry big bags/lugguages accross the villague which was quite far and the road was rocky. In addition, I hope hotel accept credit card because we didn't know so we didn't provide enough cash.

    The best things are the flexibility of the owner and the big mexican table in the courtyard where anybody can sit to eat and/or socialize.

    We had a lovely and spacious two floor traditional studio with terraces and a courtyard where guests read and ate breakfast. It's in a quiet area, Finikia, a little ways from the more touristy Oia. It was perfect for us. The owner is an informative and charming lady.

    Wish we had a hot plate in the kitchen.

    Heliophos is situated in one of the traditional villages of Santorini (very near to Ia (Oia)). The hotel is easilly accessible (after it is pointed out to you), a short walking distance to car rental, and close to main routes. The hotel itself is a renovated traditonal greek "cave style" home. The rooms and the hotel possess a natural charm which cannot be described at all. Additionally, the owner, Sophia's, is a most gracious hostess, who opens both her hotel and her home up to travellors. Breakfasts are a feast - Sophia puts on quite a spread - homemade jams, fresh baked chocolate cake, breads, copious amounts of coffee, lovely greek yoghurt and honey, etc etc. Breakfast is served in the common area of the hotel with a relaxed setting and beautiful view and guests are encouraged to sit together and mingle.

    The room was not serviced every day - cant say if this was standard practice - but this was a non-issue considering the charm and everything else about the place - this was probably because the owner Sophia is not assisted by anyone or possibly because we stayed during the Easter holiday.
