Best hotels in Santorini, Greece

Santorini is arguably one of Greece’s most sought-after destinations. Its whitewashed buildings adorned with bright blue roofs hide a myriad of luxury hotels that boast stylish interiors, infinity pools and views out to the Aegean Sea.

For some truly incredible sunsets, consider staying in Imerovigli where Grace Hotel provides stunning views over the caldera. If you’re willing to forfeit the views, you’ll find more affordable accommodation in Fira, at places such as the San Giorgio Villa.

Our top picks for hotels in Santorini: Grace Hotel and San Giorgia Villa.

Best hotels in Rhodes, Greece

As one of the largest Dodecanese Islands, there are plenty of hotels to choose from on Rhodes.

If you’re arriving by ferry or by flight, your journey will start in Rhodes Town, the ideal place to stay to soak up some ancient Greek culture away from the mainland. Though, if you’ve come in search of sun, you’ll want to head along the east coast to Lindos, where hotels such as Lindos Princess Beach Hotel await. Alternatively, try Island Blue Hotel a little further south, to experience a quieter side to the island.

Best hotels in Athens, Greece

Home to all of the must-see historical sites, as well as two of Greece’s best museums, culture seekers will want at least a long weekend to explore all of Athens’ top sites. The neighbourhoods of Plaka, Monastiraki, Koukaki and Kolonaki are all within walking distance of the top attractions and provide accommodation to suit almost any budget.

If the wonders of the Acropolis or Parthenon don’t interest you, you’ll more than likely need to stay at least one night in Athens as a stopover before your transfer to the islands anyway.

Our top picks for hotels in Athens: Arion Hotel and Hotel Grande Bretagne.

Best hotels in Mykonos, Greece

Mykonos is long-established as a holiday destination, offering visitors a vast selection of luxury hotels and boutique stays to choose from.

Best hotels in Milos, Greece

Fancy a Greek island retreat without the hoards of people? Milos might be for you.

This overlooked island shares the same fantastic beaches and turquoise seas as the rest of the Aegean peninsula, just with a little more Greek authenticity. Despite its large size, you’ll find most of the accommodation sits on the east side in the bustling town of Adamantas, the secluded fishing village of Pollonia or the mountain escape of Plaka Milos.

Our top picks for hotels in Milos: Golden Milos Beach and Liogerma Milos.

Alternate Greece accommodation options

Airbnb and Stayz list thousands of properties scattered around Greece, but particularly on popular islands such as Santorini and Mykonos. These types of properties are great for large groups or families looking for a private villa with self-catered facilities and their own swimming pool. These also tend to be much more affordable, with prices averaging €110 (CAD$150, AUD$170) per night for a three- or four-bedroom villa with a private swimming pool.

To see Greece on your own terms, why not consider a sailing holiday? Either join a flotilla and experience being part of the crew or simply book a room on a boat and enjoy your hotel at sea.

Frequently asked questions about Greece hotels

Which hotels are close to the Acropolis in Athens?

As one of Athens’ main attractions, finding a hotel close to the Acropolis shouldn’t be a problem. The Herodion Hotel, Hera Hotel and Athens Gate Hotel all offer stunning views of the grounds.

Which hotels are close to Athens International Airport?

Most international flights will land in Athens, where you’ll either need to jump onto a connecting flight or boat to take you to your Greek island of choice. This is where Hotel Sofitel comes in handy as it’s situated within the airport itself. Otherwise, the nearby town of Markopoulo Mesogaias is home to a number of hotels including GK Airport Suites and A&J Apartments that are around a 15-minute drive from the airport.
