Hotel Information

Arcing Path The Petros M. Nomikos Conference Centre is located in the town of Firá, the main settlement on Santorini, approximately a 10 minute walk from the center of town, and about the same distance from Firostefani. While there is a driveable approach to the Centre, this is not the case for many of the hotels, especially ones on the caldera face. The network of proper roads in the towns is limited, and most communication is along footpaths. The neighboring towns of Firá and Firostefani are no longer distinct so it is difficult at times to tell which you are in (and nothing about the conference depends on it). While it is possible to stay in the towns of Oia or Kamares, that would require driving some distance to and from the conference center each day. Instead we recommend that attendees stay in Firá or Firostefani.

If you have difficulty walking along steep paths, or require wheelchair access, please be sure to inquire about hotel accessibility as you make your reservations. Please be sure to mention this to us via email at early on, and when registering for the conference.

The list of hotels below is not nearly exhaustive, but each has been visited by our local organizers to verify that location and quality is appropriate for the conference. These hotels are all walking distance (5 to 15 minutes) from the Nomikos Conference Centre. Every hotel reception desk will have someone who speaks English. Also, we recommend inquiring if better prices are available. All prices below are in euros (EUR). Because the hotel industry is so competitive in Santorini, it is entirely possible you can find much better rates elsewhere. There are many, many small hotels and pensions in Santorini.

The major determining factor of room price in Santorini is proximity to the caldera face. Hotels will subtly distinguish between a sea view (or sometimes morning view) that usually faces away from the caldera toward the outer Aegean versus a caldera view that faces directly into the caldera (although there are exceptions; if you determine that the hotel is on the caldera face, then "sea view" may mean toward the caldera). When viewing official photographs of a hotel, if stunning views of the caldera are not prominent, then the property likely does not face that direction. There are a few new hotels that are to the south of Firá along the road to Pyrgos that are inexpensive, but a little too far to walk, so it is wise to check the exact location of any hotel you might book. Also be aware that the map function of many internet booking web sites does not show the location of some hotels accurately (the location for Nomikos Villas, as one example, is wildly inaccurate on many sites). If you are uncertain, it is best to contact the hotel directly to inquire. All of the hotels below are within walking distance of the Nomikos Centre.

We have found that and are excellent sites to arrange accommodations. Many of the rates below are also available at a discounted pre-paid or non-cancellable rate. It is highly recommended to verify a booking placed on-line directly by phone or email with the hotel. It is also sometimes possible to get a better rate by going directly to the hotels, especially if you are a repeat customer.
