Laokasti Villas

Greece, Europe
Santorini

Laokasti Villas and Restaurant is located in Oia, just opposite the entrance of the town. You can easily explore the town of Oia, have the best view to the sunset from the ruins of the old castle, you can visit the traditional village of Finikia and one of the best wineries of the island. Afterwards, if you wish to go to other places on the island, the transportation is very easy. There is a bus station just outside of the hotel to give you a lift to Fira, the capital of Santorini. The staff will give you all the useful information what to do during your stay in Santorini and will do their best to accommodate you in their premises like being a part of their family. The rooms are comfortable and big, fully equipped with traditional architecture. Guests can enjoy the swimming pool as well as the restaurant with a Greek creative cuisine.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Perfect location for starting the day

Review by doogieat

We loved our short stay at Laokasti Villas from the moment we arrived to the departure. Everyone was so friendly and accomodating that we immediatly felt at home. Popi was a delight to talk to and shared her knowledge of the island in a tremendous way...

The location is perfect, as it's right outside the pedestrian zone. Far easier to reach than the other hotels and the perfect spot to start your tour through the city. Don't miss out on the restaurant! We decided to eat in two out of three times, because it was so convenient on arrival and departure day, with the best food we had through the whole stay. Definitly a recommendation!

Great location

Review by eng333 New Jersey

I chose this place due to its location and price. It was the lowest priced room I could get that was close to Oia. The location is pretty much right at the end of the shopping area...

It's along the main road and there is a bus stop across the road. You can get the the center of town or the central bus stop in less than 10min. I stayed two nights. The room was a good size and realtivly clean. There was a bit of a odor maybe from the drain or A/C, I find this common in many places. Speaking of plumbing, they make sure to remind you that you can't flush paper down the toilet and need to use a waste basket next to the toilet. If this is how all the plumbing is like in santorini, that's fine, however when they serviced the room, the did not empty the basket. They emptied the other trash baskets, changed towels, etc though. The bed was too soft for me. I generally prefer firm/support, but some people might like soft. The towels were rather hard/old though. Floors are painted concrete I think so it doesn't seem that clean but maybe it was. It just done not give a warm/at-home comfort feeling. I wouldn't want to walk around barefoot too much. The bathroom is also very primitive. If we were in a big city, I'd give the place 1 or 2 star. For the low cost, and location and being in santorini, I'm giving it 3 stars.

Great Place

Review by rayofsj San Jose, California

Excellent hotel. Friendly staff. Great location...

The hotel is located right at the beginning of Oia’s main walkway. It’s close to mini marts. The rooms were spacious but the bathrooms were tiny. The hotel pool was good but the tiles were coming loose. The pool was also really deep but refreshing. They serve a basic breakfast but it’s their dinner restaurant that is truly great. Would recommend staying here for the budget conscious travelers. It may not have caldera views but it has other things going for it.

A superb, friendly hotel

Review by caerphillytraveller Cardiff, United Kingdom

Laokasti has a great location, a 10 or 15 minute or so walk from the centre of Oia. Out front it's busy with traffic, but once inside the rooms it's perfectly tranquil. The staff are wonderful, especially Popi the super friendly, helpful receptionist.

We took a deluxe suite (cheap by Oia's standards), which had everything we could need: spacious living room with two single beds, separate double bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom with overhead shower, and a small terrace...

It was simply decorated, clean, comfortable and cool with good AC.

The pool may not have the views of the super-expensive sunset hotels, but it's a great pool, long and deep enough for proper swimming. (Worth noting that if you have non-swimmers in your party, it gets deep quickly.)

Laokasti also has one of the best restaurants we visited in Oia. I'll review this separately, but it's surprising that so few people were eating there during our stay. (Note: if you book your stay directly with the hotel, you get a 20% discount on meals.)

Overall, a really excellent experience - highly recommended.
