Stay at Santorini
We chose to stay in Firostefani, as being the centre of the city, everything was within the reach. In Firostefani we stayed at Sunset Hotel, the experience of staying over the caldera is once a lifetime for sure. Location wise it is the best place to stay within budget. For my Detailed Review on this property, click here.
Rooms were decent with heavy complimentary breakfast, daily room service, and hot bathtub inside bathroom. You can also enjoy hot Jacuzzi outside with a perfect sunset view. During our visit, it was covered but on request, they opened it for us.
Room cost was 114 Euro per day in mid-November which further reduced to 92 Euros in late November. To know, How I did Greece in 1 Lakh from India, click here.
Transport from airport to and fro
Once you exit the airport, you can find taxi booths. We booked with the company Choose Yafy. For Firostefani, they charge 10 Euro per person in sharing. The travelers were really cool black in color and very much comfortable. You can also call them and book a ride from your hotel to the Airport.
From Hotel to Airport they charged us 15 Euros per person as it was a private ride. For 4 people they charge 10 Euro per person.
