It is really good value for money
Everything is good. The location is good which is just 10mins walk away from the main spots. There are several good restaurants around the accommodation and they are nice as well. For the breakfast, there are various kinds you can choose. The staffs are really helpful and polite. Overall it’s very enjoyable experience to me and my girlfriend.

Absolutely stunning property and staff was excellent. They kept us happy and went above and beyond. They carried suitcases from our car, had breakfast lined up every morning and were fabulous about helping us rent a car.

Peaceful location with walking distance to Caldera giving amazing views.
Breakfast was excellent. Chris our host was very helpful and no matter what time we gave him for breakfast he was dot on time at the door. The location of the property is excellent. The highlight of the property was private jacuzzi which we used almost twice a day,

Was within easy walking distance to Oia and some lovely local restaurants.
Unique stay in cave apartments. Pool was lovely & warm. Breakfast was delicious and served to us outside our room & by the pool. Staff were great especially Chris who was available always. Transport was organised to the port for us which was great. I don’t think we would have found it otherwise.

Host Christo is really Jesus Christ - best service ever
The property was fantastic even better than the photos. The pool was nice and refreshing and the breakfast was top notch. The customer care by Christo was like a 5 star hotel.

Cannot recommend Lotza Studios enough! Our host, Chris, made sure everything was perfect for our stay. Romeo and the rest of the staff at the studio we’re so friendly and accommodating for us. Perfect location, about a 10 minute walk to Oia and a 5 minute walk to the bus stop to Fira and the rest of the island. If we ever return to Santorini we will most certainly be staying here again!

Great value for money, good location and amazing staff
The hosts were amazing and gave us tips for a very good restaurant at Oia called Karma. The location was also good - not far from Oia and very quiet. The rooms were cleaned daily and the towels were changed. In the bathroom the toiletries were everything you need - even hair conditioner. The breakfast was brought to us on a big tray every morning. The two bedroom apartment exceeded our expectations. I definitely recommend it.

Stay in a better version of Oia
The apartment is extremely comfortable and very nicely decorated. The location itself is not in Oia, which is quite clearly shown from the map- however, it is only about 10 mins walk to the main Oia centre with good bus links to Fira.
All fixtures in the appartment are new and the host Chris is extremely helpful. He would go out of his way to assist the customers and we absolutely loved our stay.
Bonus Tip - there is an award winning restaurant right next to the place which serves the best food I have ever had in Greece

The breakfast was absolutely amazing!! Definitely worth being included for the price of the stay. And, the location was great, only a 15 min walk to the main area of Oia. It was very cozy and quiet and had an amazing pool and hot tub, plus a private hot tub in your own villa. Also, the service with reception was fantastic. Everyone there was so sweet and accommodating to our needs, including transfers, tours, directions, recommendations, etc. Absolutely would stay here again!

Unique experience staying in a cave apartment, excellent service and good quality property
Easy check-in, great communication (Chris is very responsive and always available), nice 15-20mins walk to Oia. We also enjoyed the hot tub. Bathroom facilities were very good. Staying in a cave apartment is a unique experience and it's fun for a short stay. I suggest hiring a car if you want to truly enjoy the island. Sunset views are much better & less crowded in Fira than in Oia, but Oia is more charming to walk around.

Perfect cave house !
So the place is only 5 minutes by bike or car to the Oia center. It’s better this way because we still have the charm of Oia without all the tourists.
The hotel is 3 minutes walk from the parking but it’s a very lovely walk through the beautiful houses, restaurants and the view !
Our receptionist guy is the sweetest guy, he take care of everything and even go to extra length to give you your favorite food.
Our Appartrment have a jacuzzi in the cave house, and they clean the room everyday. The bed was so comfortable, that all the other bed in Greece is nothing compare to this hotel now.
Μείναμε, τρεις ενήλικες και ένα παιδί, στο Lotza τον Οκτώβριο του 2012! Τα διαμερίσματα Λότζα βρίσκονται στη Φοινικιά, ένα παλιό αυθεντικό χωριό κοντά στην Οία. Κάθε πρωί περπατούσαμε περίπου 10 λεπτά ως την Οία. Η Φοινικιά είναι ένα πολύ παλιό χωριό μ' ένα μικρό, πολύ καλό εστιατόριο. Το Λότζα είναι πανέμορφο. Μείναμε στα διαμερίσματα 1 και 2. Μετά από μια ζεστή μέρα κολυμπούσαμε στην πισίνα και ξαπλώναμε στις ξαπλώστρες κοντά στην πισίνα. Τα δωμάτια καθαρίζονταν καθημερινά και υπήρχαν καθαρές πετσέτες. Σίγουρα θα ξαναπάμε! Μας άρεσε πολύ το Λότζα. Οι ιδιοκτήτες είναι πολύ φιλικοί!
Μείναμε 5 βραδιές στην Lotza.. Η lotza βρίσκεται στην Φοινικιά ενα παραδοσιακό χωριουδάκι.. είναι περίπου 10 λεπτα με τα πόδια να πας στο κέντρο της Οιας.. καθαριότητα άψογη.. Η κυρία Νατάσα ( η κοπελα της reception ) με ενα χαμόγελο συνεχώς πρόθυμη να μας λύσει κάθε μας απορία και να μας εξυπηρετήσει με το καλύτερο δυνατό.. ερχόμαστε καθε χρονο Ελλάδα και αν ξανα παμε σαντορινη σιγουρα θα ξανα μείνουμε εκεί..
Great place to stay at
Authentic, non-touristy and quiet place at a reasonable price (booked it on Agoda). As mentioned by previous reviewers, its a 20-30 minutes walk from Oia but there's a car park just a few minutes walk away from it. There's a nice restaurant called Santorini Mou Tavern near it; it's a pretty good place to wind down after a long day out and have dinner while enjoying some live traditional greek music.
The environment was very nice with traditional decoration! The village is Very close to OIA (5minutes with the car). The price is reasonable for the time we visited.there is a small but nice swimming pool to relax (pets friendly upon request)
Clean and comfortable
Natasa at reception went out of her way to help us, particularly when we had originally entered the wrong date for our reservation. The traditional architecture of the room was beautifully finished and decorated and the outdoor terrace gave a pleasant view to the coast and ocean. We did have trouble finding Lotza, they could do with some more signs from the main road through the public carpark.
Great Hidden Gem
Our family of 4 (teenage daughter & son) stayed here in a quad for 6 nights. Lotza Studios is utterly charming. It is located within the traditional settlement of Finikia, about a 15 minute pleasant walk from the heart of Oia. Finikia is a quaint, small settlement of winding, whitewashed alleyways formed by stuccoed homes and cave houses built into the hillside. It appears to consist mostly of homes of local people, with one nice restaurant and one other guest house in addition to Lotza Studios. It is quiet and off the beaten track. Lotza Studios is built on two levels, with 3 studios on the upper level and 2 on the lower level. Each level has a nice patio with expansive views looking northward over fields and farms reaching to the sea (but no caldera view). The upper…
Lovely, but seriously in need of on site staff and support
My husband and I chose Lotza Studios for a long awaited month off. We had been in e-mail communication with Gianna (who we assumed to be the manager) prior to arriving and she had been very helpful with her responses. On arrival, we had arranged to be dropped off by taxi in the nearby carpark, as one has to travel by foot (or donkey!) through most of Finikia where Lotza Studios is located. We were met by a young local girl who walked us to Lotza, showed us our studio and pointed out how the hot water worked. We asked would we be seeing Gianna the next day, however we were not sure she understood as she didn't really respond. However, we were not too worried, as we assumed we'd see Gianna at some stage during the next day. We didn't see Gianna once during the entirety of our…

nice,authentic and near oia
My family and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Lotza on our Mediterranean vacation this April. We rented 3 studios and could not have been happier with our accommodations. Christina met us at the Studios and gave us a personal tour of the properties. Her restaurant recommendations, maps of the islands and Fira, and list of "must see" sights were useful. The houses were comfortable and nicely decorated with taste. The views from the commun garden were great and you can feel the local life style due to many locals still living in Finikia. I would recommend it even for a couple, it is charming and romantic.
A quiet place to stay and feel the spirit of a typical village in Santorini
We decided to revisit Santorini at a time with less tourists than in summer. We stayed 10 days in Lotza Studios away from the tumultuous world. From Finikia, the most typical village of Santorini, we could wether go to Oia by feet in 10 min or have a walk along the caldera between Oia and Fira or reach the beach of Paradaisos 1,5 km far from the village by a delighfull path in the vineyards. Christine payed attention to all our desires and gave us a lot of advise concerning activities, places and restaurants. She helped us understanding the way people from Santorini celebrate Easter and we participated with pleasure.
Very authentic and romantic place to stay. It is in a quiet place not surrounded by tourists. It is away from Oia only 15 minutes walking. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable in unique local style. Very clean. Cristina was very helpful and kind and gave us some amassing restaurants and beach recommendations. You will enjoy the place and fall in love wishing to come again. Thank you Cristina for your kindness.
True authenticity on an island overwhelmed by tourists
I couldn't imagine there could be such a charming little place to stay on over-touristic (yet beautiful) Santorini. Lotza Studios consists of 5 big beautifully decorated studios in the middle of THE most charming, traditional & peaceful village of Santorini, Finikia (1km from Oia, really within walking distance). From your terrace you see the local life pass by, old men walking around on their donkeys (and not for tourist purposes!), children playing in the small cobbled streets. We stayed in one of the two studios on the lower level, wich I think were more private than the ones around the pool. The studios are really cosy and at a bargain price (60€/2p for the end of august) considering the incredible high rates for a decent room on Santorini. There's even a (small)…
Great for a quiet weekend away. A bit far from Oia, but walking distance if you're brave enough to take the streets. I do want to note, however, that this is NOT affiliated with the Rick Steves-recommended Lotza Restaurant/traditional houses. Use his phone number for that!
