For many people picking a hotel for the holidays is one of the best feelings when preparing for the vacation! Here are 4 hotel tips to keep in mind when choosing your hotel in Santorini.
Always check the nearby facilities of the hotel before you book
Don’t forget to do a quick check on google maps to see what’s nearby your hotel in Santorini. Check the distance to your places of interest, like beaches, sightseeing, restaurants etc. Also, consider the way you will move around, and the transportation that you will need in case you book the hotel.
Price isn’t the only factor to consider when choosing a hotel.
As in many cases, social proof and reviews is the first and most important thing to read after you have found your perfect hotel on the Island. Experiences of previous guests can give you a pretty good idea of what you will probably have once you choose the hotel. Cleanliness, breakfast, quality of food, and also facilities the hotel provides are also equally important reasons to consider your hotel before booking.
Book directly to save on costs
When you pick your hotel and after doing the research, before you book it through a popular website like Booking, Airbnb, Expedia etc, you should see if the hotel has its own official website where you can book directly with the premises. By doing so you will probably manage to book a better rate for your vacation.
If you can book more than 1 hotel
If you are traveling for many days in one destination, try not to stay in the same place. Consider the possibility to stay in different hotels in different locations during your visit. So when visiting Santorini island, the best way to discover the island and explore the different experiences the island has to offer, would be to spend some nights in the north of the Island lik a hotel at Oia or Imeroviglyi to admire the caldera view, and then possibly spend some nights at a hotel close to the beach like Perissa or Kamari to relax close to the sea. You can also try and book some nights inland at a small scenic traditional village like Pyrgos or Megalochori and don’t forget to spend some nights at the center of the island, Fira!
