Lonely Planet review
Comfortable, with a touch of character, these half-dozen petite rooms at the heart of Firostefani are a great alternative to the bustle of Fira. There’s no caldera view, but it’s literally outside your door. The rates are a near-steal (book early) and the small, lovely pool and verandahs are a bonus. Fira’s centre is about 800m south.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Sofia and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Fira.

Guests can enjoy a rich breakfast at the veranda of Mylos Café, an old windmill which overlooks the caldera.
