Very good 8.0
Great for price and a great view.
Great small hotel, room 13 was very small but the view was great and the staff were very helpful especially carrying our 25kg luggage down all the stairs. We walked from hotel to oia would recommend it takes about 3hrs. And walk to Thira is about 30mins. Most of the hotels look the same same. If I was going again I’d stay in Oia as that’s where we spent most of our time and taxi is €30 each way.

Oh yes indeedy.
Imagine your perfect picture of a Greek island and then improve upon it. This was On The Rocks Hotel in Santorini. Absolutely superb. Just be aware, there really are quite a few steps. It’s Just beautiful. We normally go out and do lots of trips, but we were so taken by the view from the terrace of our room, and each room has one, that we sat with jaws dropping looking at the view for hour after hour. Believe me we have travelled all over the world and it was quite stunning. Well worth every penny. By the way, the breakfast is absolutely awesome as are the staff. Going back next year. Tip; get back to the airport a little bit early, it’s a touch small for an awful lot of people and the systems creak a bit. Ask reception for help with local restaurants, we really love our food, make sure you go to Anoygi. Wonderful food, staggeringly good staff, really good prices. We both ate and drank our fill for €35 /head. Can’t wait for next year. Do the 3 beaches and volcano boat trip.

Best spot in Santorini
This hotel was fantastic. We spent four nights here and loved it. Nestled away from the cruise ship crowds of Fira and Oia it is the perfect spot for a relaxing trip. The pool bar is awesome, cocktails are divine and the view is out of this world. Stunning views of the sunset and a cool viewing spot up the hill just five minutes if you want to see it from a different location too. Just a few minutes walk from the Imerovigli bus stop where you can bus to Oia or Fira so still really handy for getting around. There are some great restaurants around there area too and it is about a 15 minute walk into the main Fira township or a 2 hour walk if you want to hike the trail to Oia which is a cool experience if you're up for it. The staff here were super friendly and helpful, there is literally nothing bad I can say about this hotel.

Poor 2.0
Small, uncomfortable, loud.
Really not sure what all the good reviews are about on this one. We stayed in room 23, near the reception for 3 nights. We couldn't wait to check out. You can hear 100% of all foot traffic, voices from other rooms and walkways. The door had no deadbolt or lock from the inside. There was no peep hole either, and no way to put up a 'do not disturb' sign (the electronic switch was broken) - didn't feel very safe or private. The bed is very soft and lumpy. We slept terribly the entire stay. The lights from fire alarm and router are so bright that they light up your room during the night. The a/c gave me an upper respiratory cold since it blows right on top of the bed and probably hasn't been cleaned out. Additionally, the sinks and shower didn't drain. The towels were very tattered and old (similar comment made by another reviewer) - felt like sand paper. We expected the room to be small, but even with those expectations we were surprised. I used to live in NYC and this was still shockingly small to me. The pool area is unappealing and cramped. Not a place you'd hang out in. The staff was kind and helpful, but we really didn't ask too much of them to be honest. Nearby restaurants Anogi and Rare Meat are excellent.
