Manos Small World is located in Firostefani

For those wishing to combine peacefulness and entertainment Firostefani is the ideal destination, due to its proximity to the capital of Santorini, Fira. Firostefani is actually an extension of Fira. Its gifted location on the caldera, on the north part of the island, makes it a remarkable site.

There are some white-blue churches dispersed among the beautiful, typical houses that will grab your attention. In this traditional village, there are few cozy restaurants and cafés located on marvelous spots which will make you feel welcome. Some shops and mini markets also exist to provide you with the necessary stuff, most of them concentrated on the main shopping street.

The big advantage of Firostefani, as mentioned earlier, is its proximity to the capital of Santorini; only a step away from the crowded and lively Fira. As a result, it forms the perfect equation. You can combine serenity and relaxation with a vivid nightlife.

Great hotel run by the friendliest people in Santorini. Unbeatable view of the caldera from the cliffs. Delicious homemade breakfast served every morning. Nice, clean, newly renovated rooms with very effective air conditioning. If I ever come back to Santorini, I'm staying here again!

5 STARS FOR THIS HOTEL & THE STAFFs. Posting this while i am sitting at the balcony chilling the night away! I really hope a review like this would help you guys decide where to stay in Santorini. For people with a budget, look no where else. Manos is located super near the pedestrian where the taxi is gonna drop you and you walk a flight of steps down. If you need help with lugagge, Levan. The hotel staff (ALL) are very helpful and will always assist you with a smile. Asking you if everything is ok! Also, they reply on Whatsapp so its like a friend that is reachable online. The room itself is very clean, spacious & i am very particular with cleanliness! The bed is very comfortable & even the sofa bed is. I slept very well. Santorini is extremely windy for the period of my stay so i could hear the rustle of the trees outside and i kinda like it. The sound of nature. Talking about the sunset & the view. Yes just like what others have said, maybe OIA has good sunset view but this hotel is located on the same stretch too. Smacked right in the middle of the caldera, it has one of the unbeatable view from even your bed / your balcony. You really REALLY do not bave to go to Oia or any rooftop bar. Buy yourself some snacks, gyros and drinks, have it at your own door. Thank you Jenny (recep), Levan (luggage guy & also breakfast guy), Andra (house keeping) and Flora (breakfast cook) for giving me such a good 3d3n in Manos. Keep that smile on your face & i really hope more people come to Manos. Last but not least, altho there is no pool or jacuzzi in this hotel (that prob explain the price point) and i don't need those facilities. The location itself is unbeatable. 10 mins walk to the bus station, 20 mins walk to skaros Rock / Imergovili. It's really the ideal location! If you rent a car, the carpark is just right on top the short flight of stairs. Cheers!

The hotel room is extremely clean and spacious. Cleaned everyday to a high standard. The location is very handy to Firostefani and only 10 mins walk along the coast to Fira. There was a special occasion while we were staying and the staff went out of their way to provide us with a complimentary gift which was very much appreciated. The view from every room is absolutely breathtaking, one of the best views on the whole island right from your balcony. Many thanks to Jenny and Levan for all their help!

If you are in Santorini for a few days then you want to be on the caldera with the spectacular view. Manos Small World provides this opportunity at a reasonable price compared to other locations in the area. No need to go to Oia to watch the sunset. You can watch the sunset from the privacy of your balcony without the crowds. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Having the delicious breakfast served each morning was an added bonus. Staff were friendly and helpful. Shoutout to Rinalda at reception for her suggestions of where to visit.
