The room I was given was very small it didn’t have the famous view as my small balcony was just facing into the south... my rooms entry was directly across from the kitchen so my room was hot and there was always noise. There is no internet. Wet disappointing stay.

Booked the Katris accommodation but at check-in they said they had no rooms even though we booked and paid for the room 8 months ago through Hotels.com , and to make it worse Hotels.com guaranteed our booking.
They found us another room in a nearby hotel and this was run down, dirty, no Air-conditioning, tv not connected, spa that had algae, and the bedding was dirty. They said that this was a better room than the one we booked.
Katris accommodation must scam others as I read a similar review that almost described our experience to the letter.
Personally I would look elsewhere so you don't get the same experience as us.
I gave them a 1 star

I sincerely hope you do not ever book this property. My reservation was for 2 rooms with sea view, 3 nights from July 4-7. We moved out to another hotel after spending the first night.
LACK OF COMMUNICATION: There is NO real reception which means it’s almost impossible to communicate with the hosts. While I was able to connect with them and arrange for an airport pickup for 5 passengers, when the taxi arrived, it couldn’t fit all of us. We had to take 2 cabs.
DIFFICULT TO ACCESS THIS HOTEL: just like any other hotel facing the caldera, this one requires you to take several flights of steps up from the base where the vehicles drop off. We were promised a porter to carry our luggage but we were told AFTER being dropped at the base that there is no porter available. The nasty woman (seems to be the host) asked 4 adults who were in their 60s to drag their own luggage while she rushed to her party.
ROOMS STINK/AC BROKEN: One room (#6) had no air conditioning and the windows were broken. Second room (#3) had water dripping from the air conditioning.
INSECTS FLOATING INSIDE POOL: All pictures show that gorgeous little private pool. They’re so misleading. The pool had dirt floating, and I could tell it wasn’t cleaned in months since it gave off a terrible smell.
Please think hard about what you want to trade off just for the location/price.

Disgusting dirty and smells like cat urine. The air conditioning, hot tub and the shower did not work. And this place is impossible to find. There’s no reception, we called a few times with no luck, asked around and walked back and forth for 1 hour and 20 min. DO NOT GO THERE!

Great view. Didn’t like the algae growing in the jacuzzi. Didn’t like the air conditioner banging throughout the night. Couldn’t shut the door to the front or to the patio without lifting the door. You pretty much have to be super skinny to fit in the shower, but don’t touch the hot water it will burn you thru the faucet close to the knob. This is all in room 5, can’t speak for the other rooms.
Without directions finding the waitress you have to talk to , just to get you to your room is two restaurants away. Breakfast was great!

Perfect for Santorini sunset and Caldera view!
The room has the perfect view of the famous Santorini sunset and caldera (by the cliff), no need to go find a place for cocktails/ drinks while watching the sunset just open your bottle of wine or champagne and you are all set. The place also has a private Jacuzzi (only for 2 person) which is perfect for a dip after being out in sun during the day. The room has the basics of what you need during your stay. There is no wifi connectivity in the room though it was advertised that there should be an internet.
It is pretty central and it is walking distance to the main square, cable car, etc. however, the place is difficult to find due to lack of instructions/ directions how to get to the apartment. We have to ask a few strangers for help in finding the place. And since the room is by the cliff, there are a few flight of stairs you have to go through and it was challenging if you have a luggage as there is nobody available who can assist you.
I must say the breakfast is fantastic! It is served in a restaurant (Idol) with a great view however, only from 9am onwards. It would be nice if you can have it a bit earlier for you to start your day/ activities early as well. Overall, I think the place is a good value for money and would consider staying again in the future.

I like the view and the location, but it was difficult for us to find it, I think that they need to put a name outside.

Kohtuullista majoitusta Firan calderalla
Hotels.comin kuvat eivät vastanneet huonetta josta huone oli. Saimme huoneen hotellin sivulta, lisänä pieni parveke portaiden päällä. Lisäksi hotels.comin reittiohje ei opasta hotellille. Katris Apartments ei ole Firan esihistoriallisen museon vieressä kuten reittiohje opasti. Huone oli pieni hyvällä sängyllä. Minijääkaappi ja vedenkeitin sisältyivät varustukseen. Parvekkeen ulkoamme oli puhdas, samoiten muut tilat hyvin siivottuja. Kylpyhuone/wc uskomattoman pieni mutta mahtui siellä juuri peseytymään. Hyvä aamiainen tarjoiltiin yläkerran näköala terassiravintolassa. Kuten Firan caldera-alueella yleensä, päiväaikaan aasinlemu leijaili satunnaisesti.
