"Top Notch! VERY CLASSY!"
We arrived via plane into Santorini and took a transfer from the airport, and the driver called the hotel just before our arrival and a porter arrived to meet us at the drop off point in Fira, turns out it was only like a three minute walk, but super nice when arriving early morning and not entirely awake. Reception was extremely easy and welcoming ( I think it was Anna ' sorry as am writing a few months later ) Upon returning the room was ready and exceeded our expectations, WOW! Attention to detail! The colour schemes, soon relaxing, and the private little balcony.... sigh........ Breakfast by the pool, was super, bit chilly ( but it was October!) food was VERY GOOD!!!! Great dramatic photos from along the pools edge to the caldera below. Beds super comfortable, perfect temperatures in the room, showers big and spacious and lots of hot water and nice bath amenities as well. I agree with eh other reviewers, glad to not be in town and away from the cruise ship crowds. We did do the 9 km hike ( trek) over to Oia... it was ok, JUST ! ok, if you are really bored then do it, but you will definitely want to take the bus back! Cool little place Oia, was it worth the walk''''' Go right to the end of town if you want to get the iconic shots of the houses on the side of the cliffs and the wind mills. Pick up a bottle of wine and some nibbles and then come back and watch the breathtaking sunsets from your balcony at the Belvedere! The gentleman down at the breakfast area was super nice as well, but in all honesty, EVERYONE there was Super! Well worth splurging for!
"April 2016 "
Loveeeeed this hotel. The views from here were beyond breathtaking. This hotel was more on the quiet side, maybe it was the time of year' But regardless, I would definitely recommend it. It’s a short distance to the downtown area.
Everything about this hotel is superb. The location is absolutely fantastic, the Santorini sunset from our balcony every day will be remembered forever. We were lucky enough to receive an up grade with our room which was like an apartment. The breakfast was most enjoyable with the usual basic fare, certainly adequate and the poolside location is great. The staff are more than willing to help with everything. This was to be the highlight of our trip to the Greek Islands and it certainly did not disappoint. Say hello to Nikko, a really nice young man who works breakfast and around the pool.
"Peaceful, Convenient Hospitality away from the crowds"
As others have mentioned, the views are breath taking, the staff is graceous and helpful. But what we appreciated most was the location. Thanks to reviews here in TripAdvisor, we chose the Belvedere over other options in Fira. Once there we realized how much this hotel is well located. A quick 10 minute walk over to Fira with it's shops and restaurants, but far enough away to escape the crowds from the cruise ships. We only had 2 ships in on e day and 3 another and that was plenty. Being able to quickly get to a place that was quiet without all the people helped us enjoy our visit all the more. Our first nite we walked over to Fira for dinner and on our way back to the Belvedere we were commenting how glad we were we hadn't stayed in town. The Belvedere is a great choice if you want the gorgeous views of Santorini, easy access to the action in Fira with a refuge from the crowds to quietly recharge.
"Very requisite and tasteful"
Very good property with large private balcony area overlooking the sea. Large rooms with attached dressing area. Located very near the Fira church , the hostess was helpful with details of some sightseeing places and restaurant recommendations. Very near some great restaurants serving Greek food. Should be good for family holidays or destination wedding.
