In a prime spot on the edge of Santorini’s caldera, the Belvedere Suites team incredible views with a central location in Thira.
Sweeping seascapes are par for the course at the Belvedere Suites, which have been built into the cliff-face on the edge of Santorini’s caldera. The hotel is right in the middle of the island’s cosmopolitan capital, Thira, which means restaurants and bars are just metres away.
Most guests spend their days relaxing by the swimming pool, which is set in a sunny terrace that looks out over the Aegean Sea. Cushioned daybeds line the water’s edge, and there’s a bar serving cocktails and snacks.
The hotel rooms are in keeping with the island’s aesthetics. Think bright white décor, flowing muslin and walk-in rain showers. Each one comes with a caldera-facing balcony, so you can make the most of the sea views. If you want to treat yourself, upgrade to a VIP Suite, which is spread out over 2 levels.

Hi, We stayed at the Belvedere this year in July. We stayed for 7 nights. We had our wedding in Santorini and all of my immediate family stayed at this hotel. Niko the manager and all of his staff were wonderful. The hotel itself and its location is amazing with stunning views. The rooms are new, modern, clean, and very comfortable beds. Niko was also so kind as to upgrade us for our wedding week to an amazing room. The only thing l was afraid of when booking there, was about the breakfast reviews people wrote in 2013. However this was not the case, the breakfast was perfect, full of variety. l can not say enough about Niko the manager who was amazing and made our wedding so special, going out of his way to organise things for us and help us wherever we needed. Also a thank you to Jimmy and Moza who also were very helpful to us throughout our stay. We will forever have a wonderful memory of our stay at Belvedere. and we will be backMore
Great room and view
Watched the sunset from our terrace. Be sure to get a room with privacy. As the walking path cuts through all of the hotels. We had a private location and were lucky to enjoy our terrace in private. Amazing view, amazing sunset Service good Some little things could be improved. For example serving espresso in the morning in paper cups? I mean really, proper cup is required for this class of hotelMore

My wife and I recently stay at Belvedere hotel. We were very pleased with our stay. The staff was very nice in this smaller boutique hotel. We stayed in room 122 on the lowest level which we really love because our balcony was very private with an amazing view of the caldera. The room was two stories with the bedroom upstairs with another stunning view. We would like to thank Maria jimmy nikkos and the rest of the staff for such great and friendly service! We also thought the location of the hotel was perfect! Firostefani has plenty of good shops restaurants and scenery, and is a short walk away from the much busier town of fira.More

Stay at the Belvedere.
My fiancee and I spent 5 days on Santorini at the Belvedere. We were treated like royalty by Niko and his staff. The room, the shower, the pool, the food (and, of course, the views) were top notch. Niko gave us recommendations and set things up for us, as we don't speak Greek. We can't wait to go back some day, and we'll definitely return to the Belvedere.More

My partner and I and two friends spent a week at the Belvedere hotel at the end of June 2014. The hotel has a stunning location perched on the edge of the cliffs at Firostefani a few minutesâ walk from Thira and has great views of the caldera and ocean. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by Nikos who was very helpful and gave us good advice about what to see in Santorini and how to get around the Island. My partner and I were slightly disappointed with the room we had been allocated as it did not have very good views of the caldera and ocean. We went back to reception to see if it was possible to move to an alternative room and explained to Nikos that we really wanted a room with a great view as it was my 50th birthday. Nikos immediately offered to move us to the VIP suite for one night and advised that he would move us to another room with great views the following day. The VIP suite was fantastic with perfect views across to the caldera and islands and ocean beyond that. In the end as the VIP suite was not booked we were able to stay in this room for 5 out of the 7 nights of our holiday. The room that we were moved to for our last 2 nights was also beautiful with great views as well. Thank you Nikos we really appreciated both of the rooms. Both rooms were kept very clean and had a fridge and tea and coffee facilities. The bathrooms were good with fantastic showers and shower gel, soap, shampoo etc was replenished every day. The only slight negative is that there was no much space to keep toiletries in the bathroom so we had to keep them in the lounge area instead. Breakfast was served by the pool area from 8 until 10 and was good- a range of hot and cold food was available with tea and coffee. Although there were not that many tables we never struggled to find a table. One thing I did notice was unlike other hotels they did not clear the food away dead on the dot of 10 so people who had arrived for breakfast just before 10 were still able to enjoy a range of food. After breakfast the pool bar opened and you could order drinks and food throughout the day. Both food and drink prices were reasonable as were the mini bar prices. The pool itself was not huge but was big enough for a swim although could be a little chilly when you first got in However you did need to cool down as it was very hot. The pool area itself was not huge but again we never had a problem in getting a sun bed. Pool towels were provided as were beach towels if you wanted to go to the beach. As other people have mentioned there are a lot of steps here so if you have difficulty walking up steps this is not the hotel for you. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful and could not do enough for you. During our stay we travelled around the island by local bus most of the time which was very easy and cheap to do and also hired a yacht for a few hours sailing which was expensive but well worth it. We ate mostly in Firostefani itself and tried several of the local restaurants including Pirouni (really good) and Mama Thira (ok but not as good as Pirouni) but did venture in Thira for meals on a couple of occasions. Santorini is a fantastic island and we were overwhelmed by its beauty and the friendliness of its people. We will go back to Santorini again and would definitely stay at the Belvedere again.More
