Our stay at Petra Nera was awesome! We had three of us in a room which also had a balcony attatched. The staff was very kind and provided free pick up from the port. The location was about a 10 minute walk from the beach and restuarants but there are bars nearby as well as a grocery store and an amazing 24 hour bakery right across the street!! The only downside was that the pool wasn't clean but I'm assuming that's because we were there during the off season.Overall, a great and beautiful place!


If you're renting a car, (which I recommend you to do so) then the location is great because it's on the main road. You can't get this price for a hotel in Fira or Oia. We had a refrigerator in the room. And there's a supermarket just across the street. Basically, staying here was hotel treatment for hostel price. Whole place was clean, new towels every day, WiFi was okay. Would definitely stay here again if I come back to Santorini.


Good spot in Perissa, right across the street from an amazing 24 hour bakery. Not to mention a market. Also just a short walk to a spot to rent a quad or moped. Nice pool and a pretty chill spot.


They went to the Port to pick up and leave us, which was great! The hotel is super well located with a supermarket, a bakery (24h open), ATMs and scooter rental just in front. The Perissa beach (10 min walking) is the best beach for swimming in Santorini, with many beach clubs (we choose Margarida, fair prices and nice people). The hotel staff was very nice! There is a fridge in the room so you can buy things and leave it there! Is also close to a bus stop to go to Fira and Oia.

The value for the extremely low price was amazing and the staff were very friendly, driving us to the ferry and providing clean linens and towels every morning. It is a bit of a distance to Fira or Ia but we preferred to be by the nice beach anyways for the day and it is right beside the bus to go into town at night. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!

Very nice family run hotel. The staff was helpful and the rooms were kept clean. Fridge in the room was handy and the location was a short walk to the beach. Many restaurants near by including a 24hr bakery and quad/bike rental shops next door.


Great staff, lovely pool. Not much else.


Beautiful hotel, attended by super kind people. It is clean and ideal for families or a relaxing trip. There's a beautiful swimming pool and you can find the beach after a 5 min walk. There are plenty of bars in the area. It's bit far away from Oia, the north part, but the bus stops100 mts away from the hotel. The breakfast was super good!


A lot of helpful information at reception (excursions, car rental and shuttle for 5euro). Breakfast was 5 euros but was buffet style so definitely worth it! Strongest wifi in the main area. Room: double bed, balcony for 2 that let wind and light in. A/C unit was not working the whole time.


the place is clean but is not that close to the center... if u stay there you have to rent a bike next to it


Really good location assuming you don't want to stay in Fira, and fantastic value for money given we booked only ten days prior to arriving in Santorini. Perissa and the staff were very nice. The rooms are pleasant for a youth hostel (although the beds are a little short for those tall people out there!). Provided all the services required - breakfast, transfer services, although the services were a little pricey. Need to pay for water (but this is a norm across the island). But I do recommend!


This place is amazing! We stayed here at the end of two months staying in hostels around Europe and it was by far the best place we stayed. It's definitely more of a hotel than a hostel. The staff are super friendly and accommodating, our host even got up to take us to the airport at 5am! There's a lovely pool, a short walk to the beach and a bakery and supermarket just across the road. The rooms all have balconies which is really nice and there's a quad rental just down the road!


We had to wait 1 hr to get our room ready, but otherwise everything was perfect from pickup at the port to arrival at the hotel. Its a 10 min walk to the beach so didn't even bother with the pool. Its directly in front of a market so thats very convenient. Bus stop is also just next to the hotel. Yannis was super friendly and helpful too - recommend to buy the day boat trip around santorini! =)
