Excellent hotel!
We had a great stay at the Arches. The location is fantastic right in the center of Oia and close to everything you are likely to want to visit. We stayed in the suite with the pool which had great views of santorini from the roof top. The staff was great, especially Valentina who helped us get reliable transport to the airport for an early morning flight. I would highly recommend the arches

Nice clean hotel with friendly staff. For the price you couldn’t ask for a better location. It is a 30 seconds walk to the main strip and the popular blue dome picture site. Also the taxi can drop you off very close to the hotel so it’s not a far grueling walk.

Everything was great except for the breakfast, I understand per covid 19 restrictions you have to deliver the food in a box, but oh gosh the food was pretty bad. If you are ok eating cold bread and jelly out of a box be my guest, but I really do feel like they could have cooked something up or cut out some fruit at least and put it nicely in a box. Also, when you book the room it clearly states “sea view” but you do not get a view of the sea, I repeat you do not get a view of the sea, the balcony had a view of the other hotel across but no sea view, so that was a bit disappointing. We stayed at the Arkotiri tower maybe the Skaros rock tower has a different view. The room is small has a basic modern touch and they do housekeeping daily which was great. Aside from all that, the operating manager, Kyriakos, was the best! Very nice guy, he helped us with a lot of things without hesitation. He’s the main reason I am giving it the full 5 stars. Ps. Everything we wanted to see was only a few minutes walk and that was a big plus. Even the blue domes and the church were only like 3-4 min walk away
