Antonia Apartment, Fira, Santorini, Greece

October 2013

We stayed in Fira town at Antonia Apartment. We had made our reservation thru booking.com By the time we arrived from the airport it was already dark and check-in was quick.

This property also has a hotel section adjacent to the apartment but due to the off-season, it was closed. The apartment consists of a large room with double bed, bathroom and a kitchen cum dining area. The kitchen has sufficient utensils and cooking equipment. Even in mid October, in the late evening and night it’s rather cold. The room however comes with a heater/air-cond. Free wi-fi available but weak signal in some spots.

The location of this apartment is very close to Fira town square, just off the main road but quiet at night for a good night’s sleep. There is a sundry shop at the main road where you can buy mineral water, eggs, bread, cooking oil, vegetable and the like for you to cook in the apartment.

We’ve booked a rental car thru santorini**li**ycars.com to be delivered to us at the apartment at 10:00 am. However by 10:45 am when no car arrived we asked our apartment to inquire. To our disbelief, the rental company said the car supposedly for us was involved in an accident. There is no car for us. They did not even bother to inform or apologise. Luckily no payment has been made.

We than turn to our apartment to arrange one. Within 30 minutes, the car was delivered to us. We signed all the papers at the apartment. The return of the car was also at the apartment. The car rental personnel didn’t even come to pick up the car. We just left the keys at the reception.

Hotel courtesy van. Most if not all hotels provide free transfers. Santorini is not a big island.
