35 Best Hotels in Fira for Every Traveller & Budget

Fira is Santorini’s capital and the biggest, busiest and most cosmopolitan city on the island.

It has a great combination of natural beauty and social activities, with plenty of restaurants, cafes & bars, museums, boutiques, souvenir shops, entertainment venues and lively nightlife. To top it all, Fira is located in the very centre of Santorini and everything is close by.

Fira is one of the best areas to stay in Santorini. You can find whitewashed villas, cave-style hotels with terraces and infinity pools on the edge of the cliff that provide astonishing views of the Aegean Sea.

There are hotels in Fira for every taste and pocket and if you’re on a budget you can choose the ones that don’t offer a caldera view and are not on the cliff’s edge. And if you intend to use public transport, it’s the perfect place to stay because the main bus terminal is located here.

I do like Fira, although it’s quite commercial and touristy. The main disadvantage of staying in Fira is the crowds. In addition to the tourists who are already on the island, loads of visitors arrive daily from cruise ships. So, the streets can get very packed.

During my second visit to Santorini, I decided to stay in Fira for a few nights and explore this part of the island a bit more. That’s the reason why I’m writing this post about the 35 best hotels in Fira, to help you find one that suits you.

They are divided into four categories: top-rated with caldera views, best 5-star hotels, mid-range and budget. You can browse them all or go straight to your favourite category using the Table of Contents below 😉
